Well, I thought I would let you guys know the little information that I have just received from my source in Japan. I was very skeptical at first and thought it was a scam.

Here is what he had to say. And no this isn't from SNK Japan directly.

Hello Ray!!

You see all of a sudden there are a lot of big game stores taking preorders
of Metal Slug 3. All of them offering the same price.
I called one of them and according to what I heard it is SNK who is behind
the production.
This is all I know but I do not think this is a scam.

There is no limit, you can order just as many as you need. The cut off date
is June 19 and the games will be delivered August 1.

I know you are a cool guy but I still have question. Why there is a deadline for pre-order MS 3 cart? If you can order as many as you want, there is no need for SNK to set the deadline.........

I would presume because they want to know how many to make. the jun3 19 number is about the number tehy will make mabye a couple hundred more. That way they dont over or under print the carts and everyone gets theres! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

This stuff still seems really weird. I just don't get why they are doing it. And why the price is so high compared to every other cart release. Very strange overall if you ask me.

You can pre-order with either Shawn or I. The price is $299, which I don't think is that bad.

Is it true Shawn ? Will you be taking pre-orders of Metal Slug 3 at $299 ???

if the fuckin cart is $299 (the NORMAL neo cart price) I will pick one up. but i still have no faith in SNK until they show me otherwise (so I am hoping they prove me wrong)

If it's $299 then I'll definitely get one copy
Metal Slug 3 is the only game (the last game) I'll try to get to my AES library.
