PS3 controller at GameStop
Gamestop.com has recently revealed their special deal for North American Lightning and Final Fantasy XIII fans – a special PS3 controlled themed by Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. In 2013, two special Lightning Returns PS3 controllers – black and red – were released in Asia and Japan. North America will be getting the black one.
Editor’s thoughts time! It’s exactly 33 days before the release of Lightning Returns in Europe. North American fans will be getting a new collector’s edition with lots of goodies and a special controller. But what will be Europe getting? A steelbook. Since it’s likely limited to special retailers, all pre-orderers aren’t even getting it. This leaves me quite disappointed. At the worst, Europe mainly means United Kingdom, Germany and France.
It seems rather weird that European fans are literally getting nothing compared to North American or Japanese, especially when this is Lightning’s last adventure and goodbye for the thirteenth saga. I really hope Square Enix Europe has planned us something special. Sadly, it seems unlikely since they have already confirmed on Twitter that Europe isn’t getting a collector’s edition.
