As it seems the Sept. 12th Maintenance is about new content to Worlds, enhancement of instanced Worlds and Duty Finder performance, and solving several confirmed issues. Not a word about resuming game sales. So we have to wait until at least next maintenance (Sept 19th?).

I'm sure it's worth waiting. Currently I'm fooling myself that it's actually a paid closed beta, and the actual launch of the game will happen in October, lol.

Although I haven't seen any new/zombie posts about server issues....I would say that at least once you're able to buy it you will not have these issues.  An assumption on my part...but a safe one methinks.

There are trusted websites you can use to download a digital copy. Companies that literally bought up cd keys and resell. You pay a couple of dollars extra a friend of mine did it and paid a 3 dollar mark up which I thought was pretty okay. He isn't on right now so I can't get the link but I believe he got the link from reddit. 

 

Hope that helps

There are still plenty of box copies available in stores. They should get it there if they don't want to wait for digital download to resume.

Oh I didn't know that. I've had a few friends that sent me in to check out the game. Last week I convinced them this is where we need to be. They couldn't buy the game this past week and were pretty pissed at my assessment sad to say. I hope I can get them back.

Idk if I'm blind or what but yesterday when i was looking to purchase the game online it said sales were suspended and none in stock. I went and bought a physical copy last night and checked online for my friend on square enix store and it no longer has that message and says they are in stock so you may want to check.

This is pretty pathetic tbh.

 

A 3 year old game, re released and two weeks later digital sales are still suspended?

 

I understand 'teething' problems etc but these guys are shooting themselves in the foot with this kind of behavior.

 

At the very least, set a date, so people know when they can expect to be able to buy the game.

 

Leaving people in the dark with no ETA just serves to annoy potential customers.

 

And I agree, many people who are angry about this will run out and buy it the second it is available (myself included) but it doesn't excuse this type of behavior when you are trying to win back customers and promote a game that tanked extremely badly when it was first released.

Sorry that was for a physical copy only. I would try best buy if you honestly want to play mine had about 10 left in stock!

No there isn't. Gamestop stores where I live (there has to be like 10) all are sold out, as well as Walmart. They get like one copy in every other day and it's gone before it hits the shelves.

All of the stores in my area (Bestbuy, Gamestop, Walmart) are sold out. I found one copy a two hour drive away but no way am I doing that.

The cd key prices are going through the roof. Allcdkey is up to $56.99. A few extra bucks is fine but I'm not going to pay close to double retail price.

Guess I'll just have to wait.

Yeah it appears they have the physical copies in stock which doesn't seem like they did before.

 

I'm in the same boat where it does seem to be sold out around here so physical won't be an option. It's like a 2-3 hour ordeal just to get to the bestbuy in my area and their online site says 'not available online or instore'. 

 

I hope it's soon but at the same time they'll start it when they are ready. People think its some sort of vindictive measure. The thing is they can't sell them digitally when they need to deal with new customers with physical copies coming in all the time. They can't shut down brick and mortar retail and distribution. The copies are printed and on their way.

The issue with that is that from everything I've read the game has been fine since the fixes they implemented and this was 3-4 days ago.  How long do they need to evaluate the fixes before they see that it's okay to reopen digital sales?  I don't know if I've ever seen a company try so hard not to take my money :p  I like that they're putting their current customers' satisfaction over an immediate increase in revenue, but I think they're in good enough shape to at least reopen digital sales for a while.  Maybe they could turn them on for a day or so and then re-evaluate?

Pretty much the longest beta in history by this point ;)

Ah yes, the old cartmanland strategy. Don't let people in for a while and then slowly let them in.

I wish they'd turn digital sales on for a day or so as it'd get people like us that are watching and want in able to play but from a business standpoint it'd be better to just be able to handle the demand and leave them on for good. 

 

The reality is the demand is far greater then anyone could have anticipated. Based on the sales stats for the game from the last couple weeks they sit at 500k subscribers when they only anticipated 250-350 for the first while. They are most likely waiting to reopen when they can handle 1-2m players or atleast have the infrastructure in place that they can upgrade things fast. Unlike the current time.

Meh, I've just checked my local stores, all GameStops within 50 miles sold out, all Best Buy stores within 50 miles sold out.  There is one Wallmart store 32 miles away that shows they have it in stock..... yeah not gonna do that.

Ordered a box from Amazon and got it two days. Don't forget that there is still a physical world out there that will deliver you stuff...
