I thought it was supposed to be a Gamestop exclusive, but the Injustice: Gods Among Us Collector's Edition is now listed on Amazon. I'm not sure if this is an error on their part, or other retailers will be actually be getting some in.

I apologize if I'm wrong, but I thought the press release about the CE said it would only be sold at GS.

I don't think the press release said that, but Gamestop was telling people that early-on and was only requiring a $5 deposit instead of $25 which they only do now for CEs that are Gamestop exclusive. Best Buy and several other retailers have it listed now and Gamestop's listing doesn't say exclusive, so it's safe to say it won't be exclusive.

I bought two .. Not as limited as the Dead Space Ultra Edition (1,000 copies still fetching $700 on ebay) but no doubt will hold resale value if they truly keep this to 5,000 units. At $100 without the game why not?


Updated my post to include the price of the stuff without the game, a better image of the contents, and a link with closer looks at each piece.


Do you think there is any difference in regards to packaging between the version with the game and the version without the game?

I'm going to guess that there isn't... that they will just throw a standard game inside the shipping box...

Anyone have any idea?

The game ships separate from the box so I would assume not

Yeah I reread the description and that is my take too... so at this point it makes no sense to get the version with the game unless you are partial to the DLC that EA is offering.

Yep. They will likely just stuff the steelbook in with the game and put them both in a bubble wrap pouch. I've rarely had them ship bonuses separately and never in a box if it's just a standard size game case type item.

I really wasn't planning on getting the God of War: Ascension collector's edition, but that Kratos statue looks awesome. Its also only $20 more than the standard edition.

I usually get any Metal Gear limited editions, but as big a fan as I am I can't justify $150 for a cool looking lamp that comes with the MGR: Revengeance limited edition.:cry:

What's the consensus on the Bioshock songbird edition and neca skyhook with regards to rarity? I know songbird has been cut off at GS for a while now.

That skyhook looks REALLY cheap. It's all plastic :drool:

The Enzio gauntlet is cheaply made IMO but that didn't stop people from paying good money for it.

Still a few sites where you can get the songbird edition from. I wish I knew how many they were making.

Oh..if you are talking from a reselling perspective, then I have no idea. Personally, I would like a well made, metal brushed replica.

Didn't Bestbuy still have the Songbird? There is a video detailing the statue, it looks pretty good, judging from the video which zooms in a lot on the statue. Unlike that pre-launch BLOPS II video where they shot the video from a distance and do not mention that entire drone is made out of foam :drool:

yeah 100 is a little rich. But seems like a fairly limited item. Really wish the game was in like a special steel or something, not just a standard edition.

No they don't. For collector's editions they do, but anything regular game size goes in a padded pouch. If you're worried about a Ni No Kuni steelbook, I would suggest doing store pickup. They will almost certainly not be shipped in a box.

Hm... now that you mention it, that makes sense. I've only been ordering CEs from them for the last 1-2 years.

I know it's going to be most if not all plastic, but is it of a good quality? How were the portal guns from them? Did those come with a stand or anything? Just trying to get a feel since I've never considered anything from neca before. Also I think you're using the drool face wrong lol.

Regarding the drool face...you get my idea, don't think of it as a drooling for desire, but a prelude to vomiting. Because the vomit icon is too strong for this situation.

Now, the portal gun was nice. Because the style and color can be nicely presented by plastic. The Skyhook, on the other hand, is meant to be metal, no matter how you think about it. The video still shows that it is nicely detailed. I am just saying I would rather like a metal replica, even it would come with a higher price tag.

Take this in jest but it's more like 'Havealittleforesightassgamer'. It's less than the price of 2 games OOP and it's on pace to sell out in less than 24 hours with a stealth release. This is an actual limited numbered CE for a good series that, if you think about it, keeps out the item that depreciates the fastest, the actual game.
