The Last Story was released over a week ago but thanks to HMV online I didn't receive mine until the Tuesday after release. On the one hand I wasn't too fussed as I'm still playing other stuff but on the other hand people were receiving it a lot earlier, some receiving it before release, and I was getting a little envious as I'd pre-ordered the limited edition.
The limited edition version was only £3 dearer than the normal edition so I had to pay the little extra and what I received was the normal edition, a steel case, an art book and a seven track CD all wrapped inside a nice box. The art book and CD are also packaged inside a blue box.
Overall it's a nice set and I'm glad that I paid the extra, now I just need to find time to play the game.
