It's strange for us as well, and we would wish they would give 30% just like they do on other guides. Sorry guys. Be aware that bookdepository ships with a weak packaging. We have heard many complaints about damaged books and late arrivals when shipped into the US.
I've ordered from bookdepository.com in the past and had no trouble. I ordered the Deus Ex: Human Revolution guide from them and today I ordered this book from them as well. Here's the link: http://www.bookdepository.com/Dark-Souls-Official-Guide-Future-Press/9783869930480
Vietguy1127, the books are all produced in the US, there are no import costs for Amazon. If you order via bookdepository, the book had been imported into the UK and then sent back into the US. So, it travels around the world to reach you.
I grabbed mine from amazon yesterday, thanks Future Press. Keep up the good work, your books rermind me of versus books from way back when books weren't just glorified manuals like a lot of brady or prima guides.
Amazon took my preorder for the guide and now tells me they dont have one. What really pisses me off is that now I will have to hunt for it and pray I find one. I think it is complete crap that I can preorder the dark souls guide the day it is put on amazon and still not get it. No one hardly was buying it at the time. I guess they take preorders for items that they don't even have.
On a side note, I appreciate future press posting here and making a quality product as that is very rare nowadays. Keep it up future press.
i wasnt the first one to preorder this but i was pretty early. this is probably the last time i preorder something on amazon. futurepress is probably to blame here too why wasnt it sent out to amazon before the release date. i dont think anyone from amazon actually got their copy yet
