If you're referring to the Skyward Sword bundle, it was actually available for pre-order earlier (I snagged one about 15 minutes ago), but it seems to be unavailable now.

The Zelda CE is really tempting but I already have four Wiimotes. Matching Nunchuck would have been nice since I don't have many of those. Now I really wish I didn't buy Flingsmash during last year's Black Friday.


Same here. I haven't actually even opened mine, because we didn't really need another wii remote then and there aren't any 3 or 4 player wii remote plus games that we play (we have two of the dongles already). Still, that gold LoZ remote sure is nifty. Sigh.

Yeah, for whatever reason GS has always had the only CE available ever since the second one. Ubi loves to shower the EU with awesome CE's for AC, but never brings them out here. Pretty stupid given the success of the franchise.

My son got some birthday money that's burning a hole in his picket.

He want's to order Batman Arkham City collectors edition for Xbox 360.

Can anyone answer these questions:
1) Opinion of best place to get it? (I told him Amazon due to no tax, free shipping, price drop guarantee, but he's looking at the bonus items)
2) Is there a deal out there for this? I know now it's basically $99.99 most places.
3) Do you think the price will drop closer to release date? Will the price drop after release date?

Thanks!!!

I say Amazon due to no tax and free shipping.UNLESS u are going to preorder more games Best Buy had a 5 orders get $100 card. U miss out on the Batman CE that was on Amazon for $60 awhile back.

I have it pre-ordered for 360. Oblivion is my favorite game and I spent so much time in it that I thought if I get into Skyrim like I did Oblivion it will definitely be worth the money...

Massively overpriced IMO. I can easily see this being the next Halo Legendary edition. I'd take the art book, but the statue screams of meh.

I sure hope this comes to fruition, as I'm sick of seeing these things drop the next month after I've paid full price! I cancelled all my pre-orders on any LE/CE/SE for the remainder of the year for that fact alone (except for GoW 3 EE w/ Lancer and Atelier Totori from NIS store) and plan on taking my chances waiting them out for the eventual drops. Each time I see that thread on the front page for the Dead Rising 2 CE for $20 when I paid $80+tax or the Mortal Kombat CE for $45 when I paid $100 +tax both @ Gamestop, I want to cry:cry:

It's a little overpriced, but I'd say that art book alone is worth about $35-40 (if not more), and the statue about $30 as well. If they had thrown in some DLC or anything extra (the map and "making of" DVD doesn't count) I think people would embrace it better. A Steelbook case for instance would have been sweet

Same here. Feels like these days every game come out is a LE/CE that is not really rare LE. Its just a way to make extra money.

Why did u purchase games at Gamestop? U do know the employees get to play the new releases a week early and still sell as new

Lol, yes I'm quite aware of the shady practices going on at Gamestop8-) But I've been using the same Gamestop for the last 3 years, so I have a great relationship with the staff at the store and each time they hire new peeps, the other guys make sure to fill them in on my "obsessiveness with the seals" and never to ask me about anything "used". I always get the mintiest, best sealed copy available out the box, which is why I have no problems shopping there for new games only.

They seem fairly sturdy. I mean, I don't take mine down and play with them or anything; they just sit on the shelf behind my TV. Look pretty cool. :D

Wow that is a big ass box which = big ass discounts when nobody is buying these and the stores need to make some room.

Like ssj said if they had just included some exclusive DLC it would have been fine at $150. Exclusive Skyrim DLC = $$$ on ebay which would have had me and I'm sure others buying it.

So as far as I can tell, Space Marine CE is exclusive to THQ.Com. This would lead me to think it would actually be pretty limited and rare but it's also a 100 bucks which is pretty overpriced considering it's contents.

Even then I would be more tempted but I noticed the Dead Rising High Stakes CE is actually being clearanced at 59.99 on the Capcom Store and was also an exclusive CE.

Anyone have an opinion on whether this thing is actually worth the "MSRP"?

You'd think so, but there are still $150 boxes of Band Hero in damn near every store. And Walmart waited nearly a year to drop the price on the Arkham Asylum CE's taking up the shelves of four games.

Cleaned up the first post a bit, added some links to related threads including the newest CE Game guide thread. Added the MW3 hardened edition as well as that Back to the Future deluxe edition.

Two things: Dark Souls can be moved up since it's coming 10/4 (update release too) and for your graveyard post, you can use customspoiler=MONTH tags if you want to clean that up plus remove red font from it all.
