That is technically 'four' tracks then.  So perhaps he did one more somewhere to make Observatory, Good Egg, and another to make a real three?

I don't think that was there when I checked last.  Thanks!

Thanks for sharing, Amazingu!  The mastering on the CD is fantastic, although a few select fade-outs bother me, where they don't allow the track to finish its full loop before the fade-out.  (Egg Galaxy and Grass Beach are two such examples.)  That should easily be remedied by some quick editing, though. :)

Yeah, looks like Kondo wrote the three Observatory pieces and Good Egg Galaxy.

Figures those are my most favorite pieces. :)  I'm so happy that they put all three variations of the Observatory theme.  I did a bit of editing and combined them into a single, five minute suite:

Oh, I should have been clearer. I definitely have a confirmation of my preorder from them. What I want now is a shipping notice. :P

In my experience, NCSX usually doesn't send a shipping notice as follow-up -- they just ship once the item becomes available, and only email you if a problem comes up with the order.  So, consider NOT getting an email a good sign. ^_^

One quick nitpick - I just noticed that the ID3 tags on those mp3s read "Masato Yokota."  Isn't it Mahito, not Masato?

I am not aware of Mahito as a Japanese name so I transcribed it as Masato, which is very common, but then I don't know all Japanese names.
If it says Mahito in the English credits of the game, then that will probably be right wink

@Angela: Yeah, the fade-out thing bothered me too, just a little bit. But at least they still actually loop instead of pulling a Capcom on us.

But am I the only one not able to access your Briefcase?

Yeah, it's been giving me problems tonight, too.  If you're getting a "No shared folders are available" screen, just try refreshing the link until it works.

1: Know your Simpsons quotes, young lady wink

2: Yes, this is the one disc soundtrack.
There's two versions and they're both only available through Club Nintendo if I'm not mistaken. This one contains all the music with live instruments in it. The 2 disc one should contain all synth music as well.

Haha. Yah, I should. 
Homer is so wise!

The Japanese Dubs for the Simpsons movie were pretty awful.  sad  I don't care if they're famous. They're bad..... such a difference from the original.

About the the OST, I'm impressed and I'm not easily impressed.... (looks out window)
Oh Wow, a blue Car    wink

Bah, for me UR MR GAY ost seems to be bit disappointment, only the arranged tracks from earlier Mario games are good to my ear. Maybe the hype in here was done it's dirty job or something.

Wanderer Jan 27, 2008

I'm glad they separated the discs like they did. The first disc is brilliant but the second disc is all the synthy filler and minigame tracks that irritated the hell out of me in the game.

What did NCSX charge for this back when it was actually available for pre-order?  I thought it would be hard to come by but YJA is flooded with them right now.  I just snagged the two disc platinum one this morning for like 23 bucks, sealed.

Mine came up to be $33 USD, sans taxes and shipping.  As far as a domestic option goes, I'd still say that's pretty fair.

Yep, just verified that.  Not that, you know, it really takes much to convince me to replay any of Mario Galaxy...  wink

Can someone post a link where to order this from NCSX?  I cant seem to find it sad

They took the platinum version down a long time ago, it went fast.  They still have the regular edition available here though, but that one kinda sucks cause it's incomplete compared to the two disc platinum one.  Your only hope would be either Play Asia when they eventually put it up for pre-order or get one of the billion copies currently listed on YJA.  Either that or wait for some eBay seller to put it up and get ready to pay hundreds for it.  *calls out to Mr. S* wink

Kind of a strange quote from that NCSX product page I just linked to..

"Preorders are welcome to ship on or around February 23, 2007."

Assuming they meant 2008, I think that means all you guys with pre-orders there aren't getting your CDs for another month. sad

I'm still wondering how long it's gonna take someone to bootleg it...

Unless that only applies to the standard edition.  They did state that the Platinum edition was targeted to ship in January.

Which never quite made sense to me -- unless they put an order shipment in for the standard after the Platinum, and it'd somehow take that second shipment longer to arrive.

It's sad that I've used that one so many times in real life.

On topic, the CD is fantastic, so thanks, Amazingu! I haven't played the game yet, but "Bowser Jr. Appears" is my initial favorite.

The official word from NCSX:

NCSX wrote:

Dear NCS Customer,

    Our Japanese supplier should be shipping our preorder of the Super Mario Galaxy Platinum OST this week but please note that they are raising the price due to the special arrangements required to obtain the OST from Club Nintendo.

NCS originally opened preorders last year at a price of US$33 but the new price will be US$43.36. We just want to cover our costs to bring these into the United States since the original price of $33 is now below our per unit procurement cost.

Because the price is being increased, we are asking our customers to reconfirm their preorders at the new price of US$43.36 + shipping. We will not process your preorder until we hear from you with your email confirmation that the new price is acceptable.

For those customers who have also preordered the Super Nintendo Controller, please also note that the price of the Super Nintendo Controller from Club Nintendo will most likely be hiked as well when it is released in April 2008. We will notify our customers before processing the Super Nintendo Controller preorders if the price is indeed hiked. Apologies for this problem.

So... can anyone direct me to another store that may be selling it?  I'm not familiar with Yahoo Japan, so any help would be much appreciated.

A bunch of crap.

Wow. That's kinda ridiculous, man. sad Unfortunately, I don't know of any other stores that are selling it at the moment, but if you need some help with YJ I may be able to hook you up.

Ashley Winchester Feb 4, 2008

wow, that is truly wack

speaking of retailers, it's taken two months and counting for Amazon.com to fill my order for a copy of Pearl Jam's No Code for my sister. Never had that happen before.

Qui-Gon Joe Feb 4, 2008

Ugh, I think I'm just going to have to swallow the extra $10 for the sake of easiness, but that is kind of ridiculous (I really don't think you'd save that much buying it from Y!J auctions after the middleman fee).  I don't know if anybody here noticed this, but Play-Asia also jacked their price up to over $40 a little bit after preorders began.  Did any of you who ordered it from there get stuck with that price?

Vaeran Feb 4, 2008

Yeah, I'm think I'm going to have to suck it up and agree to NCSX's bullshit too, just because I want this over with.  Honestly though, this is going to be my first and last order from them.

Carl Feb 4, 2008 (edited Feb 4, 2008)

The pricing blame should be aimed at the lack of using normal retail distribution.  The limited access ain't the retailer's fault.
