Can't say I'm real enthusiastic about this drop despite having a thing for CE's. Who knows, my attitude may change. I just thought I'd go ahead and put it out there anyways for the CE fans.

EDIT: Wow at the prices on E-Bay...

awesome, may bite on this, but is it safe to buy this online? Will they send you a gypped copy?

Best online trading website currently in my opinion.  Trust me I'm a CAG.

isn't the PS3 version gimped from the go w/ no real blood and all? they do however come w/ more content than their X360 counterparts, so its hard to say which would be more valuable..

$60 for a CE is the normal price for the game (until it goes on sale) Not a bad deal at all OP!

360 version = way more blood & gore & chopped limbs/decapitations
PS3 version = better lighting, play as the chick option

i've played both & have to give the edge to the 360 for just being more fun. a lot is lost w/o the chop-choppy blood-spray & spatter.

Sigma 2 has more balanced gameplay in general. It has better lighting, better looking textures, and a new co-op mission mode. It's easily the better game, in my opinion. If all you want is gore, then NG2 is more up your alley (or more of a challenge, since NG2 is brutally difficult and Sigma 2 is the easiest NG to date).

You are right about that, I am pretty sure it will drop really fast.

Any new game sold on Gamestop.com is sealed. It won't be a B&M display copy.

I'm almost sure that some CAGs have reported receiving gutted games when ordering new from Gamestop.com recently...

I really want this... but I'm not sure if I should get it now or hold out in hopes of a further drop.:-k

I have received gutted copies of games from Gamestop.com. It seems to happen when a game is a little older and they have an opportunity to get store stock back of "new" games. I think your bigger concern should be getting a damaged copy. They sent my first copy of the game in a thin padded pack and it was dented like crazy as the slip cover is very, very thin. They sent the replacement in a box which was good, but it was a huge hassle getting them to agree to pack it properly and they basically told me there was no way to communicate with the packaging department at their warehouse to let them know to pack it carefully.

That's true 99.9999999% of the time. ;)

I've actually had a couple of non-sealed/non-new games show up from Gamestop.com, though it's been years since that happened.

These days, I'd be shocked if it wasn't new and sealed.

Back a few months when GS.com was selling SFIV for $19.99, I got gutted copies... TWICE. My friend, who ordered one at about the same time, got a sealed copy. I wasn't so lucky.

I told them what happened, sent the 1st one back for an exchange, and received a gutted copy the 2nd time around. I called to complain again and told them to send me a sealed copy and they said they would... again. I waited a week or two but didn't see anything in the mail so I gave them yet another call. It turns out they accidentally processed my 2nd exchange as a return, without telling me, and that it would be impossible to send me a copy at the $19.99 price. So, yes, they still do send gutted copies nowadays. I thought they didn't do this, either. I hate GameStop. :bomb:

No it's not. You forgot Dragon Sword. That's the easiest NG ever.;)

Because first NG/Sigma has some adventure elements. NG2/Sigma2 is just pure action.

I paid 70 for it being an NG enthusiast, and it's a decent enough CE. However, as mentioned earlier it's the easiest of the console NG games. I still prefer NG2 but it's a decent enough game.

Only 74 copies left.

I have a $10 coupon from the GameDays glitch early this year. Wonder if this CE is worth $50 AC. Or just wait for the eventual $30 GH (non-CE) release.

The art book is solid and the soundtrack is standard game synth. The box doesn't have easy access so it's a pain to open but otherwise worth the extra 10 bucks IMO.

I doubt GS will have the surplus to drop this much more and if they do they will be gone quick. Is there any president for a GS CE getting real cheap?

Sigma 1 is holding value, was it originally clearanced out?

Sigma 1 is just a regular greatest hits now, and it was reviewed well. Not as good as NGB, but it's definitely an excellent game. It retails for 20 but it will typically net 12-15 on eBay.

As for the NGS1 CE, it's very hard to find and usually nets about 60 for an opened copy and I've seen sealed ones go for 100.

wow, CAG made me go out to GS when I had no plans to just to check this out! I guess if they run out online, you can hunt local stores, seems to be a lot around me. You could get a gutted copy though..

I'm seriously considering getting this now, maybe do some trade-ins to bring the price down. My only question is, is all the content on there locked onto the disc? or is it stuff that has been available via DLC, so it really doesn't matter anymore?

Nice deal. I already have the game, as I'm a big fan of the series, but others will be interested. It's a great game, by the way, but considerably easier than the first Sigma. For better or worse...

It's still pretty hard on Master Ninja difficulty which is what I'm trying to beat right now. On 360 NG2, I couldn't even beat Mentor difficulty because of all those rockets and exploding shurikens coming at you from everywhere 99% of the time. lol
