They better release some more info about the differences between the first 2 guides. From the Product Info, the first one (which is already priced at $12+) is listed as being published by BradyGames and is 80+ pages longer than the second "authentic" FuturePress one?

I'm really confused, but signed up to be notified once the other non-CE guide comes in stock (if it ever does :cry:).

I dunno where you guys are seeing Brady games but both white covered ones I linked show published and author as futurepress for me.. even down lower in the description

The entire facebook page is you begging for a guide lol :lol:

Thanks for your distorted and exaggerated observation. :bouncy: I've wanted one of these since I found out about it. I have recently talked back and forth lately often with them about this. Opinions are like .. well ya you know

But aside from that they do quality work and more people should know about their guides. True collectors anyways who order from the UK or do a little "begging" as you say to get the prize haha

I'm just going to stick with the paperback guide. From looking at the extras in the hardcover version I can't justify the extra money especially when there is only 16 pages of difference.

There's 3 different ones offered

http://www.amazon.co...&pf_rd_i=507846


http://www.amazon.co...tmm_pap_title_1


http://www.amazon.co...97419655&sr=1-3


The first one mentions BradyGames as the publisher and ha 386 pages. The second says it's from FuturePress and is 300 pages. Amazon will have to clarify everything eventually.

Update: if you look up the ISBN number (0744012945) of the first one, you will see that it is indeed a Brady Signature Series guide:

I've sent Amazon feedback about the image used since it's wrong. It is possible they have the ISBN and Publisher info wrong, but then there wouldn't be another FuturePress paperback listing on amazon.

Very, very nice find man. Just picked one up for that price. Thanks!

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

What is their policy on Pre-Orders? Charge when shipped?

Edit: Did some digging on their website. I think it is charge on order placement, but you can cancel via an online form*? Refund within 30 days

*It's unclear if there is another step beyond submitting the online form.

Ssjmichael, you're a boss for finding this. I thought The Book Depository only went through Amazon, since they're the cats I bought both my Killzone 2 and Bayonetta CE guides from. Thanks again!

What price did you guys pay? Double check your isbn and make sure you are not getting the German language one. That one is still in-stock at regular price on amazon.de

Ah too bad. I was very close to canceling my Amazon US preorder for the paperback.
Thanks for posting this!

This is the same boat I'm in. But from the sounds of it, this guide should be worth it.

I don't know, I just use my CCard.

I've ordered from them before and had no problems.


Maybe it has something to do with the currency conversion....

Ah, thanks! I placed a "pre-order"; I totally forgot to do so on the other import site, and the price shot up to $28. I really should've canceled my softcover order from Amazon.com, but I forgot to do that also...

*grumble* stupid Amazon for not distributing the CE in the US *grumble*

The paperback guide @ Gamestop is Future Press also. It has the unlock points also.

It's still $11.50 on Amazon if u don't mind not having the hardback and just want the unlock points like me.
