One thread for every CE is stupid.

Anyway, Gears LE's seem to be rarer than most, so I wouldn't bet too hard on getting this cheap later on.

Like Amazon.com did with the Halo Reach Legendary Edition for $59.99 before they released it. Lol.



This is a "Longshot" but I am going to say a plushy like Little Big Planet's Sackboy but instead Trashball Cole. Of course I am joking but you never know. Lol.

Does anybody have a link to the CE Thread. Thanks.


LOL, that would suck so bad it would be funny. They could call it the Epic Fail edition:lol:

I guess deals new definition should be "Either under priced, priced at normal or over priced which is up to solely the descretion of the person claming deal" since the "deals" thread is mostly just msrp shit anymore or someone posting a pre order msrp price and thinking its a deal. We have multiple forums for this shit for a reason.

These have been on Amazon for more than a week, if not two weeks.

No details of what they come with at this time.

wth you at least need to post what's included. This is in no way shape or form a deal. Shit like a week or two ago I think you could at least use PRE10 and get a few bucks off this but thats not even valid now.

The epic edition details were released on the same day the creators first showed game play.
You get a poster, cog tags, special feautures disc, and a model of marcus fenix

an MSRP thread wouldn't be an MSRP thread without gargus bitching about it. :applause:

Can you post the link for Amazon. I can only find the Standard Edition. If a person preorders the Epic Edition from Amazon I wonder if they will they get the advertised $20 Credit. Thanks.

I will post more information later on.

Last time I checked on it, which was a few days ago, there were links to the three versions. When I checked now, they're just showing the "normal" version.

I'm sure if Gamestop has posted the links for the three versions, Amazon won't be far behind with (re-)posting their links (again).

$150? Are they serious?

Sometimes I think Epic believes they are a bigger gorilla than they actually are. Apparently they forgot how many customers they pissed off after the "epic" fail with the online in GoW2.

How exactly is this a deal? Overpriced. I rather wait the 2-3 months and watch this be on Amazon for 60$. I'm happy I'm getting the game for free plus 20 dollars credit.

I don't even care that much about the price not being a deal, but making a placeholder thread when there's no concrete information about what's in the $150 version seems...pointless. Might as well start one for Batman: Arkham City as well.

And yeah, pretty much every fancy edition is over-produced now. When's the last one that was hard to find a couple weeks after release?

Mass Effect 2 and Blackops Steelbook edition to name some. And if I'm not wrong, Gears 2 collectors edition is quite rare too.

Saying the Deals forum is 'mostly' this is more than a slight exaggeration. While I agree that posting a $150 MSRP on a game may not be a deal, the deal forum still 'mostly' has actual deals. Looking at the first ten threads on the front page, all of them are actual deals except this one.

I'm a sucker for CE when they are for franchises I've enjoyed in the past. Call it being consumer wh*re or simply a sucker... but I recently pre-ordered this and the MK-TE.

As a CAG, i'm ashamed :(
