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

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.

Love to see this added. Was excited for the steelbook at Bestbuy for this game earlier when it was listed in the @gamer Magazine. Now, sadly, it turns out it was just for the folks lucky enough to be shopping from the Futureshop branches.


GCU bonus is already amazing and I'd be taking advantage of that with Lightning Returns if it weren't for Target being the only store offering the same steelbook as Futureshop in the States.

I would buy all of my games at Best Buy if they include bonus steelbooks.  I am a steelbook collector so this is a great idea!

As a longtime purchaser of video games at Bestbuy. I have seen the quality of offers for video games decrease over the years and now even the preorder items are becoming less enticing. These steelbooks are interesting and a good motivation to purchase my games from Bestbuy. I'm often left struggling to understand the decisions made by Bestbuy US for not offering a lot of the awesome stuff that Bestbuy CA offers to it's customers.

You have SB for movies - why not start doing what our Canadian brethren already have leaps and bounds on us in and join in on the fun? Need me some more metal in my collection of video games!
