The Injustice issue may be a size problem? I doubt it, but I know that Zavvi and Game won't ship large items abroad, so it's possible.

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

Looks like Gamestop and Walmart are sold out of Aliens Colonial Marines CE, but it is still up on Amazon, Target, and pretty much everywhere else.


I'm totally hyped about this even with all the negative comments about it, have had my CE pre-ordered since September. 5 more days, it looks to play much better than AVP and I thought that game wasn't that bad. But i'm a huge fan.8-)

I have a quick, probably dumb, question. I just got the pal UK collector's edition version of Pandora's Tower from a third party seller on Amazon.com. It has no shrink wrap on the outer box and also not even on the game inside the box and I ordered it to be new. The seller says that all these CEs for Pandora's Tower pal UK don't have shrink wrap on it, but I think he is full of it. I was wondering if anyone had ordered it and this is actually the case?
Thank you in advance for the help.

Did gamestop change their policy on the deposit for pre-orders?

I could of sworn that pre-orders $100 and up need a $25 deposit but not for special editions like $80. Was trying to reserve GoW Ascension and the guy told me I needed $25 thought that only applied to the more expensive pre-orders.

There was no shrink wrap on mine, not on the outer box or on the game case itself. There is a multilingual manual that came in a plastic baggie.

All CEs now take $25 deposits now I think.

I was concerned about that too when i got mine back in December.. but doing a google search seemed to reveal that thats just the way that they come. I got mine directly thorough Amazon UK so i doubt they're opening games on peoople =P Its strange as hell. I dont think other UK CE games come like that. At least no other one i've ordered before

Thanks for the quick reply. I did do a google search, but I was unsure. I figured someone here would have ordered the UK Pal Pandora's Tower CE and I would be able to get a definitive answer.

Yeah, I don't mind. I mean, you are going to pay the full amount eventually anyway, and if you decide you don't want it, you still get your full deposit back.

A fine guess - but that is not always the case. Of large imported games, I have ordered the Hitman Absolution Professional Edition (the one with the big vinyl 47 figure) and NnK: Wizard Edition from Amazon UK. Both large, both shipped here.
My advice is to keep checking every couple days to see if it will go through.

Yeah, I have one on pre-order from Newegg (got it during the $12 off coupon time) for $87.99. Still deciding if I'm gonna keep it or not. The game might not be too bad.

yup, no problem. I dont get a bug up my butt when people ask about junk you can kinda get through a google search. I understand that sometimes you want to hear from people on a forum you frequent. I cant guarentee the guy you bought it from sent you a new copy, but that IS the way its supposed to come.

If I get a CE of The Last of Us, it's definitely going to be the Survival Edition now that I see the more expensive option doesn't include the Art book. The statue is nice, but not worth that much...not by a long shot.

I don't get why people keep saying that. Yes it's expensive but it's not overpriced, quality vg statues go for a lot. For the average CAG the statue alone isn't worth it but as a collector of this kind of stuff, it seems like a pretty good deal (even better if the game is as good/does as well as we think).

You say that as if it's some cheap pack-in McDonald's quality. Max Payne 3's was kinda bad, but Assassin's Creed's for example was very high quality and well worth the price. Have you physically seen the statue? The maker of it produces very impressive stuff, I don't see what makes you think it's so cheap. Someone may also try to accuse me of "trying to justify my purchase because I regret it"; I haven't put down a single cent on this and can cancel it whenever I want.

I think you are fighting a losing battle trying to argue your position with these people. These guys have no intention of buying it and have to basically bash the whole idea of it to make themselves feel better. As you already put it, they have no idea what the quality of the statue is like. They are basing their interpretation of it in their own light. For all we know this thing could be a real beauty and as you have pointed out their have been plenty of quality CE statues. I don't understand people online sometimes. It's fine, no one is looking down on you because you aren't getting it. With that being said I don't understand why they have to justify not buying it by bashing the whole idea of a $160 CE. I don't go around bashing movies I haven't seen. >.>

Eh, my biggest issue is they TAKE OUT one of the CE extras from the MORE EXPENSIVE one. So if you want the artbook too, that's another $20-$30 (from Amazon probably sold separately) adding to the cost of $160 making it actually $180-$190 vs the $80 CE version w/ artbook.

I'll add that trying to argue small statues are worth that $100-$120 extra on a cheapassgamer site where lots of us pay $10-$30 for games is silly.

I don't think we are trying to argue the statue being worth this much or that much. I mean I was perfectly fine with paying 150 for night vision goggles with MW2 or 130 for a halo helmet. I want this stuff so I am fine with paying a premium. I mean obviously game companies need to make a profit. If they threw in the art book as well it would just be too good of a deal.

My argument is if you don't want it then don't whine about this or that. Move on, no one really cares if you buy it or not. We all work or do what we can so we can buy what we want; I don't dictate how people should spend their money. I plan to pick up the $160 CE and I already locked in a preorder for the art book off amazon as well ($26).

Yep. No regrets buying CEs on release day and paying $100-150 on most of them. I don't buy every CE I see. Like bioshock infinte for instance; I just have no interest in that game so I decided to pass on the CE.

Last year I bought mortal kombat KE and LE on release day. That's a total of 250. Then the prices dropped for both editions months later. No regrets. I wanted them anyway. Right now, I have Metal gear rising US LE and UK LE preordered, plus both injustice special editions preordered

It's not silly if they, unlike generic non-rare games, keep their price & value over time.

Hopefully this is the right place to post this, but I picked up the Collectors Edition of Ninja Gaiden 3 tonight for the 360 for $29.99 at Gamestop. In case anyone was looking for it.
