NintendoEverything is reporting that an internal email sent by a GameStop representative stated the following:
we as a company have now met the quantity we were given of the artbooks for the pre-orders and we can no longer use this as an incentive.”

This should be taken as a rumor as GameStop has yet to announce this publicly and the art book is still listed as included when you pre-order online.

    I was just at gamestop to pay off my pre-order today and my favorite employee there said that I’m kinda on the edge of getting one….i reserved it last friday. Oh well i’ll just have to wait and see.

      Scratch that. when I was at game stop they were crazy busy so I didn’t ask him to look it up. So I called a few minutes ago and he looked to see if i’ll get one and he said I should get one but he couldn’t promise because I reserved it on the 23rd.

    I pre-ordered Xenoblade in early December at my local GameStop. I just paid it off yesterday, and I noticed on my receipt that the title was changed to “Xenoblade Chronicles No Premium.” I got worried that that meant I wouldn’t get the art book, so I asked the clerk and all he said was “I’ll make sure you get the art book.” Not the most reassuring, so we’ll see…

  • I preordered back in January, so i should be good… right?

      Yeah you should be

    I hope that means that those who already per-ordered  the game will get it upon release.

      Hope so

  • Pre-ordered long ago so  I am safe. I still hope this means that they have sold more then they expected!
