Bring FutureShop's(Best Buy Subsidiary) Gaming Steelbook Program to Best Buy USA

Status: Acknowledged
by htz on ‎01-31-2014 02:46 PM

I would like to see Best Buy copy the program they have up in Canada at FutureShop for video game steelbooks. It would be great to get more exclusive video game steelbooks as pre-order bonuses. Best Buy here in the USA does offer steelbooks for video games but it is only on rare occassions.

I did hear back on this idea. At this time we will not be bringing this program to Best Buy U.S. We will continue to release Steelbooks when made available to us.

@htz, We did forward this request onto the appropriate team here at our corporate headquarters. I have not heard back on this yet. To be truthful if they do see the business value in this idea it could take a while to implement. As soon as I hear anything back I will post a new comment.

Can we please get this? I make a yearly trip to Toronto, and I always make it a point to visit futureshop just because they always have a large section of left over steelbooks that I can purchase, and I would love to just get them here in the US. This would lead to me preordering even more games, and buying them earlier instead of at a discount weeks or months later.

Wish I would have gotten the Titanfall steelbook today. Smiley Sad

Is there any update for this idea?  it has been under review for quite awhile now and I would like to know if I can get a steelbook with all the new games coming out for the rest of 2014

@qualityman13, funny you comment to this now. I just forwarded this one back onto the appropriate team to find out if we could put this in place or not. Once I hear back I will comment back here.

Could you give a bit more behind the reasoning for this decision?  Futureshop is owned by Best Buy, so it should be a trivial issue to allow the steelbooks into US Best Buy locations, correct?  I generally purchase games based on where the best steelbooks are offered, so Best Buy often loses out on money I'd otherwise spend there.  I know I'm not the only one to do this.

@kitsunisan; the reasons for our decisions are internal and would not be shared publicly.

That's really disappointing to hear. Guess I'll have to keep importing movies/games that have steelbooks that I want. Hopefully in the future things will change.
