Currently in stock at Gamestop.com. Online only.

PS3

Xbox 360


Collectors Editions are presently in shortage at both online and b&m stores. Your best options for grabbing a CE:

You can try calling Gamestop, Walmart, or BestBuy and see if they have any extras beyond the pre-order batch. Make sure to see if they are doing a midnight launch. If not, go first thing in the morning




Stores that will NOT have CEs at all:

Target - $10 gift card with purchase
K-Mart/Sears - $20 gamer coupon with purchase
Newegg - Confirmed to be shipping out regular editions but is giving a $20 coupon in compensation


ATTN AMAZON BUYERS:
If you had preordered with release day shipping but the expected delivery date is anything later than 10/4/11, it would be in your best interest to contact Amazon CS and complain :P




While supplies last
- receive a FREE upgrade to the Collector's Edition of Dark Souls when you pre-order the Standard Edition at no extra cost.

Immerse yourself in the Dark Souls experience with the Collector's Edition, which comes wrapped inside a collectible custom designed metal case with protective sleeve, the highly anticipated Dark Souls game, a mini-strategy guide, unique art book packed with exclusive, high-quality imagery, the original soundtrack & behind-the-scenes videos taken with Dark Souls game development studio FromSoftware.

Dark Souls Collector's Edition Includes:

  • Special Designed Metal Tin Case & Protective Sleeve
  • Dark Souls Game
  • Mini-Strategy Guide*
  • Custom Art Book
  • Original Game Soundtrack*
  • Behind-The-Scenes Videos*
In stores October 4, 2011

*The Mini-Strategy Guide, Original Game Soundtrack & Behind-The-Scenes Videos are provided for digital download via a uniquely redeemable online code printed on a specially marked card inside each Collector Edition box.

This has me interested but the absolute glee the developers seem to be having in making the difficulty controller-throwingly worthy makes me glad the NES days are over. I enjoy being crappy at video games, why do they have to take that away from me?

Now these are the types of special edition I support. Some actual, physical bonuses rather than some DLC bullshit, for basically buying it day one and no added premium.

I wasn't going to get this game but no way am I passing up a free special edition.

EDIT* Holy crap, even comes in a metal case!

yeah, i'm all over this, but i wasn't sure if it'd be wise to order it on amazon before they list it as the 'limited' or 'collectors' edition. i know they're good about their whole "pre-order price guarantee" but i'm somehow worried about the system not registering it as the LE/CE.

am i just paranoid? can anyone shed some insight into this?

In for a pre-order. If a better LE/CE offer pops up, it's easy to cancel.

This is the first game I've ever been interested in the CE. If they offer a deluxe bundle for $100+ I'm pretty sure I'd have to buy it. I liked Demon Souls that much.

I've never pre-ordered anything from amazon so I was just wondering... do they charge you when they ship the game or do you pay today if you place the pre-order today?

They charge when the item ships so you can preorder today and cancel anytime.

Also damn looks like I got to preorder. A free upgrade to the collectors edition is great and I don't mind paying MSRP to the successor to the best game on the PS3.

Pre-Order complete. Now hopefully Amazon does not screw this up and I somehow end up not getting the bonus goodies.

DS ranks as my top game this gen bar none. This dev has earned MSRP from me. I cannot say that for the vast majority of others in the last several years.

Awesome. Same here. $55.09 damn good deal. Sucks that the soundtrack is digital but cant beat free extras with a metal case.

Amazon will automatically upgrade you to the collectors editions. They did it for me with Dragon Age 2 when I preordered a long time before the signature editions were announced.

And if they screw up they will give you credit anyways so win-win. They miss a lot of release date deliveries but it is fine with me because they credit me $10 each time it happens.

I had already had Dark Souls preordered for 360 but I added PS3 today in case there is some sort of exclusive content announced later on. Cant wait for this game.

Taking it away? I don't see how a couple of games each year out of millions of casual-aimed tripe is "taking away" anything.

Same here. Can't beat $55. You've got a heart of gold, Amazon. Don't let them take it from you.

Is there a reason to get PS3 over 360 that we know of? I own both but buy cross-platformers on 360 since that is what the majority of my friends have. With that asked, I am 110% ordering this...Demon's Souls is one of my top 10 games ever.

I see wut you did there.

Also, I'm in for 1 on PS3. I'm sure PSN will be back up by then. Nothing beats the rush of that big red BEING INVADED message.

I wasnt going to get this either, but I just have to preorder it now. Cant hurt since I can cancel it later if a better deal pops up or I decide against it later.

This ^^

I think he misinterprets the source of said "Glee". It is coming from us gamers who enjoy games which do not simply require us to mash buttons in order to get to the next cut scene.

And don't get me wrong, I find value in the casual stuff too. I just refuse to pay top dollar for it. God help you if you try and play something like Demon Souls after a bottle of wine...
