The preorder is available at game and a place called geekstore. The latter is 10 quid cheaper at 35 quid. Are they reputable. Both stores seem to be selling a version that comes with lovely badges.... So I'm all ready to order except for my uncertainty as to whether they are reputable orbifbthey will just cancel it last minute. £10 seems like a big difference but I don't want to be left with high and dry come release day....

Gnnnh. No way am I paying fourty-five quid... I guess the badges (which look pretty neat!) are only supplied with this "collectors edition". I'm hoping that the "standard edition" will be £25 - £30 once other places start advertising it.
Then again, I'm not sure if I can wait for late November when I could just download it now for £25 (less a wee bit of Gold credit).

Glad I've got it ordered now anyway
I was concerned about the badges, but its does mention them in the address header. Did not realise it was only £40 now at game - i probably would have gone for that for the peace of mind. Ah well, if it doesn't have the badges i will send it back.
Edit - i have been proactive for once in my life and emailed them. Somethings are too important to let fate dictate - Deadly Premonition badges are one of them.
Double edit - Geekstore have confirmed their version does NOT have the badges. Am trying to cancel my preorder as we speak. Looks like Game for me.....
I didn't think I would but I've held off from picking this up.
This Switch version is not a port of the Director's Cut as released on PS3 in 2013, but of the original Xbox 360 version; this means that the slightly updated controls and the different vehicles / costumes are not included. Additionally, there seems to be quirks with the audio (some of which have now been fixed) and performance. I'm not gonna drop around £38 on the physical version or £25 on the download version when it's not as good as the PS3 version that I already have. Having watched several vids on YouTube it appears that, by most accounts, this version is pretty much a "second-best" option for playing the game.
It's such a shame; I just don't get why the publisher would put out a version that is perhaps weaker than one that is several years old now. I do also feel bad for putting a downer on the excitement of folk who may be picking this up... I just hope that the publisher could put out a couple of improvement patches to bring the game up to scratch. Deadly Premonition deserves it!
