An important data point to follow: The SR4A LE

If/when these are delivered is certainly of direct importance.

I agree, but there is already a stickied thread dedicated to that.

The events in that thread should act as a , and pardon the pun, catalyst for directed speculation here.

Seriously. I would love to get an update on this.

Who is driving from Maine to Seattle in their beaten up '72 Pinto hatchback to pick them up so they can drive back home to ship them out, only to find out when they unpack that they are missing a box and need to drive back to Seattle before they can ship me my LE? Nah, wait; time frame wise I would already have it is that were true.

Alternatively, is the rumor true about the Catalyst shipping computer being gone due to it's owner no longer being with the company? While I applaud the idea for it's thematic tie to Shadowrun (do computers have to fill out W-4s?), it seems sort of unprofessional. I'm hoping it's not true purely for the fact that it would only delay things more. At this point though I have to wonder. After all, I've ordered and received dodgy gray market electronics from Hong Kong since hearing that the boat had arrived in the US. Customs can't take that long or international trade wouldn't exist.

I'll chime in and say that my pre-order in Battlecorps which used to say "Pending" is now saying "SR4LE Pre-order". (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

That's a disquieting rumor, but it illustrates why it's always a good idea to save the email confirmation on any order. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Other interesting question would be if people who paid in advance can get their money back, if they cancel their order, or if there is simply no money left to give back . .

If the rumor is indeed true (and we have absolutely no idea if it is), I for one wouldn't fault the employee for taking his personal computer home with him. What else is he supposed to do? Donate it to the guys that (allegedly) fired him to cover themselves?

Mine changed from Pending to SR4LE Pre-order on 31 March 2010.

I don't think that is indicative of progress being made with respect to shipping these out to us. I have been regular contact with Tara about another Order of mine through Battleshop, and am not getting any update from her re: the LE Book. My other Order looks like it is going to be canned because the books that I ordered nearly 2 weeks ago, have now been discovered to be 'Out of Stock'. It took a week to go from 'Pending' to 'Processing' and then nearly another week to be told 'Out of Stock'. This is despite their website saying that they don't list product for sale unless it is in stock.

As you may tell, I have developed 'the grumbles' with respect to these orders.

People should be able to cancel their order, because of possible breach of contract [i imagine, what with the company publicly having financial problems], and the credit card company should then return the money and chase the company to reclaim their money.

So I have a question. I didn't learn about SR4 till recently.

So I didn't know about the Limited edition.

I can piece together there's been problems getting them to people that ordered them.

My question is thus. Are there any still available for order?

Check the first post of the Stickied thread about the LE copies of the books. When they announced that the books were on the boat there was a link in that post for ordering a copy. Mind you, it has been over two months since they told us the books were on the boat and there is no street date. I would guess (based on the info in that other thread) that the street date is about 2 or so weeks off, but there is no official word.

Ordering now wouldn't seem so bad. What people here are complaining about is that some of us paid for the book over a year ago.

Did you get the SR4A + SR4A LE + PDF combo? If so, that would correct. The SR4A book would have already shipped. I got mine a while back.

Still waiting on the SR4ALE to get here though. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/indifferent.gif)

I ordered the LE+PDF combo and bought the standard SR4A at my FLGS. Now that I'm looking the date is my order date, so that must be for the PDF. I would complain about the shop system being a bit obtuse but at this point it's like requesting the deck chairs on the Titanic be rearranged...

So, its yet another positive thing?
When you rearrange deck chairs on the Titanic, you ensure some of us get a better view of the wreck and panic.
I do love to watch a good panic.

Well that's kinda the thing. If they're over a year late as is, with people having ordered them a year ago still not having received them. I'm curious as to the realistic expectation of ordering now and actually getting one.

I guess I'm saying "Ok they're off the boat, but how many in the box were already accounted for'?
