I knew someone would post this eventually.

That's some tinyass company barely anyone has even heard of, even in the UK. It means nothing in grand scheme of things for Best Buy/Walmart/GAME (for the UK)/etc.

YEY!! I am excited!! I can’t wait!! Especially to play Galaxy and Sunshine!! Since I never played as I never gotten the Wii. Mario 64 I’ve played multiple times and would be saving it for last.
Hey there, First timer doing pre-order on bestbuy. Can you share what exact wordings did you receive from bestbuy's confirmation on your pre-order?
I received the following confirmation on bestbuy, but wasn't sure if it means I will receive it on the release date "18th of Sept" guaranteed at my door. My email says the following:
"Thank you for ordering at bestbuy.ca! We just wanted to inform you that your pre-order item(s) is currently awaiting the release date. You will receive a shipment notice as soon as inventory is ready."

Just got the charge to my Credit Card from my Best Buy preorder. They don't charge until they ship, so I wonder if I'll get it early.

It's not "guaranteed", really depends on where you live. I normally get shipping confirmation on Thurs night and parcel shows up on Friday.

Pre orders do get cancelled sometimes due to stock or system errors. You should get it as long as bestbuy has enough stock to fulfill. I know when in the past preordering Steelbook movies they do go to sold out or page disappears. Only way to guarantee is to make sure you get a pre authorization charge or full charge on method of payment.

So basically 80$ for 3 games that are hardly remastered (just upped resolution)?
+ For a limited time?
Sounds like a rip off.
Remasters usually cost 40-50 and get full graphics revamp. And also stay forever.

Cancelled my pre-order, come to think of it, this is not a good price.

Will buy it used when my gaming backlog is cleared (aka DBZ Kakarot, RDR2, Ghost of Tsushima, Judgment, Fire Emblem 3 Houses, Xenoblade Chronicles, Shenmue 3, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, etc). Plus PES 2021 and FIFA 21 are coming...

Looks worse than the dolphin upscale, I love those games but that package has 0 appeal to me.

I'm very excited for this collection and think the price is fair. Preordered.
