Heyo, I just got this email and figured I should inform everyone:

This is a pretty strange move for them to make, and I know a lot of people who were going to save up money for it are about to be caught off guard. Strange.

Never got the email myself, but did go and pay the entire thing off as a result of hearing about it. Amusingly my order summary says "Free!" next to the PAK Cloud + H. Daytona item, but not next to the lanyard which actually is free.

Who needs money for Christmas right?

:monster:

This was extremely inconvenient and inconsiderate on the part of S-E but seeing as how I ordered it and want it, I went ahead and paid it.

This ends up being a blessing in disguise anyways since now my funds are freed for March and obtaining that exquisite work of art that is the Battle of Destiny statue for FFIX.

... I swear though, if S-E pulls some shit regarding that however, I'm going to be fucking more than annoyed.

Pfft. :P

Going by the email's stated intent, I somehow doubt my early payment is going towards the Holiday income of their staffers especially since its merchandise. Square probably realized how few the quantities of the SOLDIER 1st Class were in relation to demand and wanted to separate those serious about the purchase versus those who'd probably flake out. And this frees more stock for customers willing to put cash on the barrel for this edition.

Square could have avoided all this by simply not opening the pre-order all the way back in June, a full 9 months from release or just simply asked for payment or a down payment then. Alas, it is what it is.

It sucks for me because I had to cancel a lot of other things I wanted to get this month, but I guess it's nice to not have to worry about it in march, but christmas is gonna be a stretch for sure... :(

I suppose if you somehow set up a payment method that definitely won't work you could put it off, since the intention is to try and get the money at several different points before the final "deadline"

Glad they decided to back up on this one. That was a really dumb thing to pull just before Christmas regardless of their reasoning.
I feel bad for those that have essentially already lost out due to cancelling though.

EDIT: Europe confirming this as being the case as well, just to clear any doubt.

Thanks for this reminder, SE's email went to my junk folder.

It reminded me that I needed to cancel my 1st Class Edition preorder. I had a big move a couple of months ago and downsized my possessions. Don't want to deal with that again. Hey, if I had a big house and lots of money you can bet your buns I'd buy every Remake Play Arts Kai available, but oh well.

I'm working on getting all of the bring arts figures, I just can't spend that much for one figure. 9 is my favorite of all time, but that price tag is a little too much lol

Keep an eye on your e-mails because Square REALLY wants to make sure you're committed, I guess.

Apparently you are asked even if you chose to debit already. Not sure if all regions affected. US only affected. Includes Deluxe edition orders as well.

Edit: Someone already put it in another thread but to be honest it should be here as well
