Looks like a lot of people were definitely interested in a physical copy of the game as its sold out in a number of places already.

Indeed. On Play-Asia, it was sold out before it was even released.

It was available on the PreOrder for some time and before that wasn't sold out so one needs to stop saying misleading comments.

Yes, you're absolutely correct in that it wasn't sold out before it was available for preorder.
Grizzled is fully correct in that Play-Asia ran out of their calculated stock before even recieving it.

Preorder date ain't the same as a release date. And the game became unavailable to preorder some days before its release date, therefore there is nothing misleading about the phrase "sold out before it was even released".

It's called closed PreOrder deadline. They do that to insure they can sale the inventory they have and not what they don't have. This is how retailers works for PreOrder when the release date nears they close PreOrders so they can sell what they have inventory. The only changes would be if they get more from the Supplier but then that would be updated at a later date but the "Sold Out" will be there until then or if not then they are no longer in production.

The point I'm trying to make is that the demand was higher than the supply and, thus, they had to stop purchases before the release (shipping) date. This wouldn't happen if the demand for the game wasn't as high.
