awww, $60?! I was hoping it would be $39.


this is especially a rip for the PS3 if they aren't going to put SI up on the PSN.

That's why I wasn't going to buy it for PS3 until the GotY came out - I wasn't sure if they'd ever put Shivering Isles on PSN. For that matter, I'm not sure if any of the extra DLC is going on PSN at this point. All I've ever seen from Bethesda is a nebulous "we're looking at it". I'm wondering if they're waiting for the install base of the game to get a little larger (according to VGChartz.com it's only sold 205,000 as of last week, whereas the 360 version has sold over 1.2 million).

I'm sure they'll announce something regarding PS3 DLC shortly after the GotY edition ships.

DDD free shipping takes about a full month for me, so I'm not in.

I can't believe $60 is the MSRP on this. I know they really only charge you for the game and Shivering Isles, but damn.

No offense, but you've waited over 18 months to get this game; is the slow free shipping really keeping you from buying the GOTY at a bargain price?

DDD ships USPS media mail as their free/standard method, particularly for bulk orders.

However, in my experience, if it's just one or two games or movies, they've sent those smaller onesie-twosie orders to me via USPS Priority or First Class.

Well, crap, I was going to order it today. Another DDD screw-up that I'm too slow to get onto.

Sold my game a while ago anticipating a price drop, and the GotY edition, kind of hoping to buy this back again soon at a good deal... but no rush, really.

let me get this straight: this has all the DLC the game has to offer, but all the DLC on the XBLM will stay the same price, so I would be a dumbass to go out and buy the regular edition for the 360, right?


I bet this will be on sale for $49 at some places on release.

This version includes vanilla Oblivion, Knights of the Nine, and Shivering Isles.

It does NOT include:

Vile Lair
Spell Tomes
Mehrune's Razor
Horse Armor
Wizard's Tower
Thieve's Den
Orrery

You'll still have to buy all of the above DLC on Xbox Live if you don't have it already.

EDIT: I also think this will be on sale for $49.99 at release. When the original PS3 version released it was $49.99 at Amazon, for instance.

ugh, that's crap. i'm guessing MS is forcing it this way so the DLC doesn't become obsolete. :roll: looks like I'll stick with the PS3 version.

The regular price for PS3 Oblivion is $59.99 at most places. Amazon's PS3 price is unique to Amazon (and not a bad deal if not for the GOTY edition coming up).

GOTY for PS3 and 360 is currently listed @ $59.99 at most places.

$49.99 is list price for the PC version.

I realize it's the same price, but seeing how the PS3 version runs smoother I'll go with that.

or I'll wait to build a gaming rig...i don't f'in know :lol:

I thought about building a gaming rig too, but that's money I don't have right now. Besides, assuming PS3 gets the DLC (crosses fingers), the only thing you'd be missing vs. PC is the plugins and mods. Very cool stuff, but not critical.

Also, I realize that $49.99 is the MSRP for the GotY Editon PC version. I'm saying that the PS3/360 version will likely be on sale somewhere for $49.99 the first week it's available, just like the original Oblivion was for PS3 on Amazon.

I was at CC yesterday scoping out the clearance games and they had Oblivion Game of the year edition on the floor for $60. I think I'll pass, but when the price drops I'll definately pick'r up.

Well that's just lame. So the only advantage is not having to waste space. If you buy the preowned version @25 then all of the DLC, you're back @$65. LAME!
