Also known as "2dx" -> "2discs".

I hope it's not like you pick a song and it's like "PLEASE INSERT DISC TWO" because that would be really annoying, but I doubt they're gonna be that stupid about it.

The fact that IIDX is moving to another console... does worry me.

Oh no, I meant they said this release is the last version that will be for the PS2.

(Or at least it is according to the post on SSS)

If by "last" you mean "latest", which seems to be what the article says.

"Besides the game, the premium best edition package comes with the twin CD Empress Best album. With a large array songs in different genres, you can practice your reflexes on the train or on the bus when you go to school or work. Simply imagine the cues floating down like flower petals."

So basically there is not going to be a 2 disc set, it's going to come with a soundtrack of sorts.

Well, it's preorderable now on Play-Asia, if you want the regular edition.

http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-1fx8-71-8g-49-en-15-empress-84-j-70-3hbx.html

Let me know if you use the link, as usual.

LEs are now preorderable. It's possible that only the LE Complete has a poster this time, but it's apparently going to be AC-sized. Just hoping it uses the old style for Ameto and not her shitty bubblegum outfit.

Regular ($85): http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-1fx8-71-8g-49-en-15-empress-84-j-70-3hbx.html

LE ($190): http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-1fx8-71-8g-77-4-49-en-15-empress-84-j-70-3hl8.html

LEC ($250): http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-1fx8-71-8g-77-3-49-en-15-empress-84-j-70-3hl9.html

The prices are pretty FFFFFFFFFF this time around, but you get some pretty neat swag, it seems.

OMG, at least 200 bucks for a LE version.

And when I initially saw the $85, I panicked since I thought PA jacked up the prices of all their IIDX games (since I didn't get DJT yet), but only the first jack-up is in effect atm.  ($75)

But considering the LE is so much, I'm reconsidering my thoughts of getting it now.  Only time I've gotten the LE for a IIDX game was 12th, and my feelings towards the stuff that came with it were, well, meh.

But... EMPRESS is pink!   ;)

I'd buy it if I had the money.  I bought Happy Sky's LE and haven't bought a IIDX game since, mostly due to the fact that my IIDX controller is non functional.

OK.  After looking over the options....

The poster doesn't look too appealing for me, so that eliminates the highest-priced one.  On Himeyashop there's two lesser EMPRESS premium sets, so I might consider those; though I generally don't care for most of the CDs and DVDs that come with the LEs)

As for who to order from...

- Play-asia is lower in terms of shipping, but they have a nasty habit of holding double the amount you purchase on your card until it goes through.  This has caused me to bite overdraft charges on a few occasions for using my debit card through them.

- Himeyashop seems to cost more in terms of shipping.  They often have more LE choices, for some odd reason.

Both end up dinging me for an international purchase.

So yeah.... *shrugs*  looks like I might just do the cheapest LE on Himeyashop or just the game...  the other LE's look way too expensive for stuff that I wouldn't really care about.  (I would just want the pink tin container, actually...)

Eh, is it confirmed that they're using the AC poster? "Arcade announcement poster" really suggests either version, and if it's the loctest poster, I definitely want it.

Yeah, except the intern spots I found near me are all for people currently in junior/senior year of college, and I'm kind of past that now, =|

Shhhhhhh, that's a secret!

To be serious, might not hurt to apply anyway, just be honest about your situation, though.
