Just thought I'd share a few links for those that were last minute getting in pre-orders like myself :(

I did it, I'm sure its last ditch effort but I've got both CEs for the others and it's one of my favorite series, how did I forget to preorder this thing?

Was a click away from ordering. But I just couldn't bring myself to pay $87 for a game, collectors edition or not :lol:

i'm right there with you.. I know this is a beast of a collectors edition but $87 is alot of dough... and I know some retailers will have more in stock the week the game comes out if I change my mind..

Yea the collector's edition sold out on Amazon and best buy right when I decided I wanted to get it. It's $85 at Toys R Us, would have gotten it for ~$75 at Best buy with the credit. Damn ME1 and ME2 are my favorite games all time, but I don't think I can do this. I'd rather just have the main game for $50.

Is it possible to transfer purchase of a pre-order at Best Buy? I pre-ordered ME3 CE as part of one of the trade-in deals, but I also have it on order at Amazon with the $50 promo credit from the 4GB Xbox console + Kinect from Black Friday. I'm considering trying to move the promo credit so I can get the $20 gift card @ BB, but it might not be worth the hassle of re-ordering the CE if stock is an issue at BB.

Only the 360 version of this game seems to be selling out... the PS3 and PC versions are readily available pretty much everywhere.

I preordered for the 360 since that has my saves from ME1 & 2 and will like be the better version (seeing as how ME2 on the PS3 wasn't all that great, even after having an extra year).

Didn't the PS3 version of ME2 use the engine that was going to be in ME3?

I didn't think this would be a big deal at all. I figured I would make my way to GS and preorder my 360 CE.... do they not allow it in store anymore already???

Yeah. I knew it wouldn't be a perfect engine seeing as how it's the first outing but still, there were more trades offs than improvements (ie, PS3 version had better lighting but 360 version had better textures).

But then again, I probably shouldn't complain. The fact that it was close and not a half-assed port is probably more than what other developers/publishers would have done.

GameStop has stopped preorders for the 360 CE for a couple weeks now. Only preorders available are from Target and Toys R Us, online only. Or you can hope some stores will have some stashed away for release day, but its unlikely

maybe it was just my area, but once they stopped taking pre-orders of ME2, I wasn't able to get an extra copy ANYWHERE around me. I even know some guys at my local gamestop, and they were gonna hold one back for me if it became available, but none ever did.
luckily for me, a friendly CAG hooked me up with one, and I am eternally thankful

A friendly CAG says what? ;)

On-topic, I would say that if you don't have it pre-ordered at Best Buy, Amazon or Gamestop at this point, you're taking a chance of not getting one. TRU has had notoriously bad luck with CEs in the past, so at this stage of the game, you might not get one. They're the last shot for one at this point.

Target seems to me like they always f up CEs via their website. Usually it's listing the CE under the regular price but I wouldn't be too confident in getting one from target.

And if Overstock has it, just run.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I made an order with ToysRus.com back when they were the only online store I could find that still had a listing for the Forza 4 C.E. , it went on back order the minute the release date came so i'm inclined to believe any orders for this now won't be going through.

Target never has it right. They put up the description of the CE, though put up the price of the regular version and the item information/UPC of the regular version.

I'm glad I preordered one from both amazon and best buy for the CE. Originally only did the best buy one for the extra trade in bonus, but now it seems like a smart decision. The way this is going, unless the game sucks major ass (highly unlikely), this CE is going to sell for crazy inflated prices on ebay by the end of the year.

Considering that Amazon still says the following, if you haven't gotten in a 360 pre-order previously, I'd be checking the website every day (including AWD around release), as I suspect that a few more pre-orders will pop up over the coming weeks:

"Due to high demand (and possibly the imminent Reaper invasion), we have unfortunately run out of our pre-order allocation for Mass Effect 3 - Collector's Edition for Xbox 360. We are looking to secure additional allocation from the publisher and will update this page if that occurs. Please note -- if you have already pre-ordered this edition -- do not cancel as you may not be able to re-order."

Sears.com has the 360 CE available for preorder on the website. I don't know what the success rate with that is or if this was mentioned. For what it's worth, when the MW3 Hardened Edition was allegedly "sold out", I was able to snatch one about 2 days later on Gamestop.com. It's a risk, but could pay off. Persistence pays off I guess. :)
