I really love the universe of Fables and The Wolf Among Us was no exception. However as an episodic game I wonder how much it was hindered by being a prequel to the larger body of fiction. The end result was never really in doubt - The Crooked Man had to be caught and captured, Snow White ends this story as Deputy Mayor and Bigby is still Sheriff. With the finale essentially written in stone it's pretty hard to have serious consequences based on your choices.
I don't have a problem with this. It's like a little badge of honour for being an early adopter.
As someone else mentioned you also get a commemorative Day One 2013 controller as well as "premium packaging" according to Amazon. Overall I think it's actually a decent promotion for the day one edition and I would consider it if the Xbox One was going to be my next-generation console of choice.
Wow...haven't really seen a release this hard to get in...ages! Maybe since I had to order Shadow Hearts: Covenant from an obscure place in California.
Where I am (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) I can't get it at any of the local EB Games, Best Buy, Future Shop, Walmart or Superstore. Best Buy, Future Shop, Walmart and EB Games all list is as unavailable for online purchase.
Even AMAZON.ca is sold-out!!!! (Well except for an Amazon Marketplace store that is charing $20 extra)
