I think it'll come back in stock, at Amazon at least.

Oh for sure, but for their initial allocation to sell out in less than a day is pretty indicative.

Looks like I have a reason to buy an Xbox 360 now.


I already have 2 and seriously considered the GoW themed bundle, but I hate the color red. So when I just clicked on the thread and saw this, the biggest smile went across my face:D I can't wait! The bundle appears to come with a white Kinect as well, so dare I say the best looking themed console created? Will surely get one to play and use, and the collector in me wants one sealed, so looks like $900 gone come this holiday:bouncy:

Lol, some dude already has one up for $200. I'd imagine this easily going for double if they do hit the holiday release window they've set.

Very unlikely. EA will keep upping the allocation until the last possible moment and like the Starcraft 2 CE and the more recent WoW CEs, this will not sell out for quite some time.

I don't think so. I truly believe that this will only have 50k units. While that's not that small of a number, remember that this is Star Wars we're talking about. If someone is truly a SW collector, they will buy one to keep sealed and one to play, so that's going to limit the number available. I'm also fairly certain that there are more than 50k hardcore SW fans, PC gamers who like the franchise, and a mix of the like in the world. So, with that large of a demand, and the 50k supply, I think that this is going to be fairly limited on launch. Probably not Bioshock limited, but it could happen.

Having spent the last 15 minutes looking for evidence of this alleged 50K limited number, it appears EA has never said this at all. In fact, Kotaku quoted an anonymous "EA insider" as saying 50K would be guaranteed while they will take 500K pre-orders and implement a wait list. I'm sorry, but that sounds completely made up. Is EA really going to turn down 500K or $75 million in potential revenue just to let a few collectors have something "limited"? Absolutely not and it makes no sense that they would only produce 50K of something and then maintain a wait list 10X that large. This will not be limited in any way.

The 500k number is for ALL preorders, read that, ALL. All includes the CE, standard, digital, and digital deluxe. So, your theory makes no sense.

There's no theory, just me quoting the rumor Kotaku published and you have now taken as fact. Here is what they said two days ago:

"Pre-orders for The Old Republic will come in two flavors, the basic edition and the special Collector's Edition. The total number of pre-orders EA is purportedly taking caps out at 500,000, with only the first 50,000 pre-orders guaranteed, the rest queued in a prioritized waiting list."

Now, in contrast, here is the FAQ directly from the developer and publisher:

http://www.swtor.com/preorder/faq

Please show me where it says there will only be 50K collector's editions, only 50K guaranteed players initially or 500K total users maximum? It doesn't. That figure was totally made up or based on speculation. Is it possible they will cut off preorders at some point? Absolutely. Are they claiming they will limit initial sales to build a good and stable gamer's community? Yes. Does that mean there will only be 50K collector's editions or only 500K total pre-sales? Nope. In fact, if they really do limit sales, I suspect they will try to force sales of the more expensive collector's edition to squeeze maximum profit from every one of the limited number of initial players possible.

What I got from you Kotaku rumor is that there wil be 50k guaranteed pre-orders. Only some of these will be the collector's edition. 450k may receive a copy at launch. Nowhere did it say that they made up the figure just because they thought it sounded good. If anything, you just proved that it will be more limited than I thought for the CE at launch.

Seems the Arkham City's CE Statue showed up at SDCC. There's a number of pics here. The flash kind of white-washed his face a bit, but you can still check out the detail present...assuming this isn't just a show model and the retail release is a crappy knock-off.

Skyrim Collector's Edition



A presentation for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is currently in progress at QuakeCon, and it’s already brought us a bit of great news. Director Todd Howard recently confirmed that The Dark Brotherhood will be making an appearance in the game.
It’s also been announced that the game will be getting a Collector’s Edition when it launches this November for $149.99. It’ll come with a statue, 200 page art book, and a making-of DVD. More details are expected to be shared shortly.

Here’s a rundown of the Collector’s Edition contents straight from Bethesda:
Alduin Statue: Created in conjunction with the IP Factory, this collector’s only statue stands 12” tall and is made of high quality PVC. Modeled from actual in-game 3D digital files, it showcases Alduin, the World Eater. He stands perched atop one the game’s many dragon walls that teach the player the lethal language of dragons.

The Art of Skyrim’ Official Art Book: Featuring over 200 pages of striking, full-color illustrations, sketches and models, this stunning 9 3/8” x 12 1/8” coffee table book showcases the characters, creatures, environments, and weaponry of Skyrim. With a foreword by game director Todd Howard and commentary from Bethesda Game Studios artists, readers will be guided through the game’s iconic visual style.

‘The Making of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ DVD This documentary DVD contains exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage, including interviews with the Bethesda Game Studios team as they take you from concept to creation and provide insights into the story, gameplay, setting, legacy of the Elder Scrolls franchise, and much more.

Yeah, I know! I wish they had a middle version with everything but the statue for $99. The artbook and cloth map are what I really want. I'm pretty sick of all the damn statues in these CE's lately.
