It looks like Amazon is soon to drop an exclusive Day 1 steelbook edition for ps5 and Xbox One. It says currently unavailable, but they do this a day or two before the product actually drops. Have had this loads of times with Deluxe edition cd box sets i've had from them recently.

The ps5 link is below...may be worth keeping an eye out,its bound to drop very soon!!!

I’ve just pre ordered It for my Xbox Series X and arriving 14 Nov which It’s telling me on my pre order for some reason. Even the games out on the 8 Nov.

Yes, the ps5 says 14th too. How odd. Hopefully they update the date to 8th soon, otherwise a day 1 edition a week later is a bit....well, whats the word?! Lol

I’ve just checked my order again and It’s being shipped by Amazon EU S.a.r.L. Instead of Amazon UK. Like you said they probably update the release date near to the time.

Amazon is weird. I pre-ordered the steelbook a few days ago when it was up and my Prime delivery date for that order was (and still is) 14 November. But if I add it to my basket now to pre-order the same version, it says Prime delivery is 9 November. 
 

I almost always pre-order from ShopTo (and I usually get it the day before official release which is why I order it from there) so I don’t really know what Amazon are like for timely deliveries, but I do want the steelbook so need to go with Amazon this time. Do Amazon pre-orders ship early enough to arrive on the actual release day or do they often arrive later like this?

The games I've pre ordered off amazon have always arrived on the release day. Same with any album pre orders on cd. Hope this helps as im sure that 14th date will change

Would've been tempted to pre-order from Amazon, but the game's expected delivery date is days after the release. Luckily, it's the ruins steelbook as opposed to the other more vibrant steelbook, so I'm not too bummed missing out on this.

A few friends and me ordered Splatoon 3 from Amazon and all of us received it a day after release.

It definitely seems to have become a more common thing recently so unless you absolutely must have the steelbook I'd recommend going with the likes of ShopTo if you want to more safely ensure delivery on release day.

With the way spoilers for the game are seemingly going I'm personally definitely focussing on receiving it day 1 above anything else.

The re listing now says 8th, but yes originally it said 14th.

Yeah, it’s now actually giving the right release date for the game, so hopefully that’s true.

As for the other steelbook, pretty sure the US gets two of them, the first being the generic ruins one that is up for pre order on Amazon, while there’s another one with Sonic looking out into the distance with a smile and ready to run into it.

Ah yes, i did a search and found it. Wonder if game or hmv or somewhere will get that version. Cant think of any other major game retailer that may offer it thats uk based

Hey all, Game UK now has that other Steelbook.

Edit: The picture is from an email, it seems they have yet to add the page with the steelbook details.

Well, the GAME version is clearly superior. I was hoping that we would get that.

Something to bear in mind is if you're getting it delivered to you GAME charge a minimum of £4.99 for delivery, even on pre-orders.

The steelbook is nice but for the additional cost I've gone with ShopTo, £46 and the slight chance of getting the game early.
