At first glance I thought it was the game for $19.79. You don't know how fast I almost pulled out my credit card lol.

Careful, this is the very thought that runs through every hooker's mind 1 week before showing up on the streetcorner for the first time.

these are usually neither limited nor collector-worthy, but I may bite.

Don't normally buy guides, but I'll consider this one.

Last time I opt'd for an LE guide, it never even came out.

I ordered a couple of BR's from there, and it was an OK experience.

If I'm not mistaken this is the same company that made the Limited Edition guide for Metal Gear Solid 4 and that's not exactly easy to find at a decent price. I'm not saying this is a collectors item but if you like strategy guides why not take the dip for $20.

Why haven't the achievements for this been released? Usually they're leaked a month or couple of weeks ahead of time. RE5 comes out in 2 weeks! If there are some tough achievements or parts of the game, then I may bite. Until then, I'll wait.

It's $18.86 from Tower.com. For the less than $1 difference, I'll give my money to Amazon.

I have this guide pre-ordered along with the game, but I'm cautious about Amazon's descriptions of limited edition guides. When I pre-ordered the LE Fable II guide a few months back, the description said the guide was leather-bound hardcover and when I got it, well......it definitely was not leather-bound nor hardcover.

Hopefully we'll have better luck this time around.

I've never trusted Amazon's descriptions of the LE guides or any LE items, I always go back to the vendor for the "real" scoop on it.

I knew the Fable II LE guide wasn't leather-bound, as the Amazon description said it was and the Brady description said nothing about it.

RE5 link on the Prima site:
http://www.primagame...n=9780761561620

Says hardback, though nothing about leather, so I'm guessing it's not leather.

While it's not absolutely confirmed, the trophies list has been released and it's expected to pretty much be a copy of what those trophies are in terms of what the achieves will be.

Can someone give me an example of a "limited edition" strategy guide that is currently worth anything? Because as far as I'm aware ... I've never seen one ;-)

I just sold a new + mint one on ebay that went for $20 after it sat on amazon for $35 for weeks. It's not worth much.

a better example is the Fallout 3 collector's guide.
