Scalpers ruin everything, but in this case they may have done the fans a favor.
Square Enix had originally made only 30,000 of the Ultimate Collector’s Editions for Final Fantasy 15– their long in development, long awaited RPG that has been ten years in the making. However, as is the case with just about anything these days, scalpers got their hands on quite a lot of them, and in general, demand far outstripped supply.
To ensure that their most faithful fans (the ones willing to spend hundreds of bucks on actually getting the Collector’s Edition for one game) aren’t pissed off, Square Enix have confirmed that they will be making more of these Ultimate Collector’s Editions for the game.
“Good news! We will be producing more FFXV Ultimate Collector’s Editions which will be available worldwide!” Square Enix tweeted.
“Due to factors outside of our control though – there is a chance these new UCEs may not be ready by Sep 30 (the FFXV release date). We’ll do our best to make sure the new UCEs are not delayed though & we’ll let you know how you can order one from the 2nd batch soon.”
Final Fantasy 15 will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on September 30.
