Because it's not true that they "always" become scarce pretty quickly. For every Metal Gear LE or DOA CE (even though I see it's still available at some stores and the price has dropped, although I have a feeling those are pre-orders that weren't picked up), there's a Final Fantasy XII or Ninja Gaiden III.


Okay, I'll bite.

You named two that didn't sell out quickly. TWO. It's not like there's a whole bunch of GS exclusives that don't sell out quickly... The numbers are quite obviously skewed heavily toward any GS exclusive CE becoming at least slightly rare. FFXII was a lackluster CE, (barely even a CE by today's standards), and came out at a time when CE's weren't that much as a hot commodity as they are now. As for NGIII, your guess is as good as mine as to why that didn't go like hotcakes, but perhaps the unfavorable opinions of the game had something to do with it.

Now then, as for the ones that did sell out pretty quickly and did become rare, I can name these off the top of my head:

MGS3: Subsistence LE
AC II
Bioshock
DOA5
MGS PW

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?

Well, it's only $15 to join for the year, so even if you only bought this one item, you would be up $10 when you consider you'll be getting $20 in certs plus another $5 in certs for the actual purchase ($150X2).

Got my Ni No Kuni Wizard Edition in from Namco just now. I'm so glad they ignored my cancellation and sent it to me anyway. This thing is gorgeous.

Also picked up Hitman HD trilogy yesterday. Gonna play it tonight. The artbook is pretty nice. Some of the artwork is meh but some is really nice.

Post-Pandemic is still in stock, anybody who wanted it would have got the chance to preorder it at this point.

I'm no expert, but did the previous GS exclusive CEs (that went rare afterwards) held their preorder window for this long?



I'm pretty sure I remembered The Walking Dead CE from gamestop was on sale for quite a while. Yet once it was sold out and released, everyone was trying to get one.

I don't see why people think the DOA 5 CE is rare. I can still find them. There is a PS3 copy and a Xbox copy at one of my local stores. It was hot when it first came out, but it's died down quite a bit.

The only CE I can think of that just never sold out and somewhat surprised me is Alan Wake. The CE sucked, but I still would have guessed it would have sold out at some point based on it being a new IP and a good game.

I dunno, man, the Alan Wake CE is one of the few CEs I really enjoy in terms of its bonus content and physical bonuses. I really enjoyed the game (even if a lot of people didn't), and I don't regret picking up the CE on launch week.

There were a lot of Alan Wake CE's produced and the game in general didn't sell very well because of Red Dead Redemption releasing on the same day.

This! I loved Alan Wake! The game was great and I loved the CE extras. Sure it never sold out but that just meant I got to grab it at a lower price! Totally worth the money!

FYI - The official Injustice: Gods Among Us site has added European countries to it's list of pre-order locations this morning (previously just the US and Canada were listed). The UK page shows Amazon and Game as retailers that will be carrying the Collector's Edition.

http://www.injustice...-united-kingdom

While both are linked to, neither has pages up for the CE yet. However Amazon has just put a hold on pre-orders for the standard version (after adding a picture of the CE to the listing yesterday). My guess is the UK CE will be live for preorder there in the next day or so.

The Alan Wake CE was pretty damn awesome. I've only see one locally still available just at one gamestop in the new section still for full price. But in terms of content it was pretty damn awesome.

And DOA5 CE is pretty rare in most areas, and last time I checked resold for quite a bit. So if you do have them in your area, check that and then maybe you'd have a good opportunity.

I just received the following e-mail from the Class of Heroes 2 physical collector's edition Kickstarter project that failed to get off the ground last year. Looks like they are indeed trying to do two versions of a limited run physical production of the game. See below for details:

We're sending out a message thanking all the backers that supported our ultimately unfunded effort to do an awesome Deluxe Edition of Class of Heroes 2. It didn't work out as a deluxe edition, but that's not because all of you didn't try hard, and we really appreciate the support you showed. Due to a stream of fan requests over the last few months still requesting even a regular physical version we have been able to negotiate a pre-order only physical release of the game that will also come with a download code if we can hit a minimum number of preorders for it. We wanted to tell you first that, as a believer and backer of our CoH2 Deluxe Kickstarter, you may have the opportunity to preorder a Kickstarter Supporter Physical+Digital Edition of the Class of Heroes 2 game that will have different disc art than the "general" preorder version. Because this is planned to be a preorder only physical release and the game will be digital only from release day onward, the physical game will be rare, but the Kickstarter Supporter edition will be even more exclusive. We have to hit a combined 2500 units to be able to do the physical edition, so we will first do a "general" non-binding signup via email where fans indicate their interest, and then if we have at least 2500 fans indicating they want to preorder, we'll open an actual preorder signup and the physical version will be a go. Fans that preorder will also be able to vote for the cover art to be used. Look for details, including pricing and the "I'm interested in a preorder" email address very shortly.

Yeah dude.. this one time.. I saw metroid prime trilogy on clearance at Target. Tooootally not hard to fine.

Sarcasm aside their is at least a 50% chance that if your GS does have DOA5 CE or Walking Dead CE it is no longer sealed. Pass.

Last year the only CE's I remember people being upset over not getting were:

-Witcher 2 Dark
-Borderlands Loot Chest
-Persona 4 Gold
-Darksiders 2 Mask

Just recently Ni No Kuni wizard's.

Other LE's were widely available I assume as I didnt really see a uproar from fans on it being hard to find.

their are always going to be a few sheep that want something last minute just because they can no longer obtain it easily.

This unfortunately is part of human nature.

Their are also going to be nincompoops like the above poster [two up] that think because something comes back in stock a day before/after release, or is spotted at a target in passing that it is all of a sudden easily accessible to everyone else.

Lastly you're going to get either the severly misinformed or the trolls who make comments like "MGS HD LE isn't rare... I'll pick it up at BB on clearance" when it was a GS/AZ exclusive or the posters who says things like "This game isn't rare my gamestop is showing stock today" which coincidently is release day and it is a well known fact that gamestop stock checker will count preorders are part of their stock.

Well, to be honest I not know what should be categorized as a "long" preorder window before OOS, I remember the loot chest was OOS faster?
