wait, the post-pandemic edition doesn't come with the Artbook from the Survival edition? That makes no sense.

Yeah, I agree, that's really strange. If it did, I'd be slightly tempted to get the Post-Pandemic Edition, but as it is, I'll just get the Survival Edition from BBY.

The statue looks pretty, but no way do I pay an extra $80 for that and the Survival DLC. And the no art book definitely kills it.

Really want the Post Pandemic Edition but I cant see myself paying $149.99 + tax for it. They're saying its very "exclusive" so maybe I might just pre-order it and think about it for a while.

It's $159.99 if that makes any difference.

I hear that. If that's also a GS-exclusive (doubtful given the wording of the press release), I'll just get the standard edition from Best Buy.

ugh I just returned from picking up my Ni no Kuni at GS...my steelbook is in bad shape, nevermind the minor scratches, there are dings and dents here and there that took the paint/gloss off so the silver color of steel catches your attention more than the artwork itself...I tried asking for another but the dude just shrugged me off, gave me the whole "you should feel lucky you got one" speech

and now I see that the only place to grab the Survival Edition is GS? fml

FFS the biggest game of the year for me and I was hoping like hell it'd get a CE and now it gets a GS exclusive CE. And like someone said the most expensive one doesn't even include the art book?? What a joke. I want this so much that I'm probably still going to order the damn thing though. God dammit. It had better be extremely limited.

I really wish they had simply made the $80 version. An art book (full size no less) and a steelbook is exactly what I'd want from an $80 CE of this type.

Only the Post-Pandemic Edition is GS-exclusive, NOT the Survival Edition. Gamestop is just the only place that has a product page for the Survival Edition right now.

You know, thanks to both you and Gamer4life88, now I'm tempted to just put down a preorder at GS for the PPE and see if it sells out. :-k

EDIT: On second thought...nah. Come on, Best Buy, list the Survival Edition already!

The $80 edition of TLOU is so much better than the $160 version. Half the price and all you lose is the statue but get an art book. I also don't get why the $160 version does have the art book, esp considering the book has an MSRP of $40.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

The Survival Edition looks quite nice. I'll be well happy with that.

Check out my youtube channel! I do video game collection updates, unboxings, final impressions, and intelligent game industry commentary.  Expect lots of collector's editions, as well as steelbooks from all over the world! :D

So it's truly a GS exclusive?

I'd have to imagine that given it is a new title and a PS3 exclusive it "Should" have a low print number....

Still $159.99 is a lot. I'm assuming it's at least $25 to preorder?

To be fair, you also lose the Survival DLC pack, but that comes with all Gamestop preorders, so that's only an issue if you get the game somewhere else.

Most likely, but you can always ask if you can put $5 down. It was possible for the DOA5 CE (also GS-exclusive), but then again, that was half the price, so $25 might be the minimum for this one.

Extremely limited?

Honestly, I'd compare the U3 CE to the Survival Edition here, not the Post-Pandemic Edition that will more likely be "extremely limited" due to being GS-exclusive.

So tempting, but $159.99 for the post-pandemic edition is a ton. Also after browsing gamestops website I saw a white 500gb ps3 with 1 year of PS+ for $299.99. Always wanted a different colored ps3 besides black!

Like the GS exclusive Ninja Gaiden 3 CE which they are still trying to get rid of and is currently being sold for 60% off it's original price?

We're also talking about a CE where the primary bonus is a statue of two characters nobody is currently that familiar with since this is the first game in the series. How many people will plunk down that much money for a statue of characters they have no real love for yet?

Yeah, $25 is the minimum you can put down at gamestop for an item at this price. I also think it might be limited for the reasons you mentioned but you never really know with these, I'm just going to throw down a pre-order just in case.

I usually could not care less about what is in a CE. I myself am not really a collector of what I'd personally consider a bunch of crap. There's things I prefer and some things I will keep but for the most part I don't care. For this game however, it's different. I want it for myself. So that's $180 (after tax and one day shipping) gone right there.

I'll also buy the $80 version no problem. That edition by itself is a steal imo. There's $260 spent but I'm not done..

For the $160 version I'm not going to go too into it because of mods, but I'm sure you can figure out why I'd want shit to be limited. For the price and what you get though, I'm hoping for an extremely limited amount. However it is worrying that it's apparently not numbered or anything like someone else pointed out.

Honestly though I don't think there's any question of if this sells out but when. This is hopefully going to be like a Bioshock CE or a Dead Space CE but with an insane MSRP.

Was that the first title in the Ninja Gaiden franchise?

Was it specific to one console?

No? No?

Okay.
