I know this is pretty early, but the discount coupled with Amazon's free shipping (or Prime shipping) makes this worth mentioning for those who love Resident Evil, I think. And there's always the chance it'll hit your Goldbox. It's got plenty of time to yet. ;) I apologize to those who don't think this is a deal.

Basically, $10 off the Collector's Edition for both PS3 and 360... unless they're planning some sort of unannounced price drop.

:ps3: http://www.amazon.co...23562026&sr=8-3

:360: http://www.amazon.co...23562026&sr=8-4

No one's said what's to be included in the Collector's Edition, but if previous Capcom titles are any indication a Steelbook with a bonus disc is a given. With the large pricetag, I think Capcom will put out something relatively big for it. They usually don't skimp too badly on the CEs.

Oh, and there's also 5% off the Regular Edition of the 360 version, making it $56.99, but that's more of the typical discount that Amazon's been doing with a lot of pre-orders. No such luck for the PS3 Regular yet.

EDIT: THIS SHIPS THROUGH TARGET AND IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR FREE SHIPPING. You may, however, ask Amazon if they'll price adjust it for you. YMMV on that.

Yep, $84.99 is Amazon, Target is $79.99.

I think I'm going to get the most bare bones version possible.

Oh, I just realized. It's shipped through Target, but it's also via Amazon... Sorry guys.

Personally, I had the thing already reserved because it was in my Goldbox. When I saw this price, I just asked for a price adjustment and got it. You might want to try the same. I'm not sure if they usually will match a listed price on their site like that, but it's worth a shot and worked for me. I have it right now as a pre-order for $75.99.

Gamestop has it listed as $89.99. And you have to pay tax. Tax on $89.99 can be messy.
For me, the difference is $95.39 --> $79.99 plus Goldbox.

Damn, whatever happened to $80 CEs... I'll wait for more info on what's in this damn CE, before making a decision.

I figured I'd lock in the price early, as there's the pre-order price guarantee and you can cancel from Amazon at any time.

Why are you pre-ordering this game now while its release date is March 09??????

Because it's zero money down, it's at a discounted price, I can cancel any time, and I'm going to be getting it anyway. Those are all good reasons, in my opinion.

I pre-order ANY Collector's Edition of a game that becomes available in my Goldbox as soon as it hits Amazon to lock in a price, just in case the price of the Collector's Edition goes up before launch. It's happened before. There's no hassle. If it doesn't go down, I just cancel the pre-order.

I've have MK vs. DCU Kollector's Edition locked in for $56.99 (MSRP $69.99) as a result and am still waiting on possibly getting Call of Duty: WaW Collector's Edition for $19.99 (MSRP $79.99).

The CoD:WaW is a price mistake, i don't know if Amazon gonna honor it or not... They canceled my Mission Impossible collection BD order (it was $20 something for all three movies). Not only a cancellation of the mispriced MI BD, but also the other items in the order (another movie or something to get free shipping over $25). They might let the CoD:WaW go through, it all depends how many people placed the order

They may and they may not, I agree. I'm still waiting, as the CSR said that she noted on my account that they will honor the price mistake when the game becomes available again. It's a bit of a stretch, but I'm still holding out for it. MKvDCU ended up saving me some cabbage though.

I don't think anyone even knows what's in the LE yet for this. I have the regular version at $54 so I think I'm going to stick with that.

I'm seeing a trend of LE's offering less for more these days.

Amazon won't honor price mistakes for other vendors. Canceled my Half Life Espisode One 360 order a while back.

Maybe it was a mistake, but I got mine price adjusted to $79.99. This was before I even noticed that it was being sold by Target. I had already pre-ordered the game from Amazon over a month ago.
