Just got off the phone with Amazon.
The price on the Super Deluxe Edition is supposed to increase on the 17th, so I thought maybe there was an error and their system was listing that as the release date. However, it does seem that the 17th is currently their projected delivery date.
I could see that changing, either as they face order cancellations or realize a mistake their customer service rep didn’t uncover, but for now the 17th is correct.
For what it’s worth, they did give me a $15 account credit for the inconvenience, even though I did say I was going to see about finding an alternate retailer. So, that was classy of them.
Guess I’ll be checking in with GameStop. I’d buy it digitally, but video games are about the only physical media I still collect.
