What is going on now, its like Bizzarro world! First Forza 4 Limited comes out and there isn't even enough copies to cover pre orders. Now the biggest release in history, COD Modern Warfare 3 is coming, and the hardened edition is sold out everywhere it appears. How can this be when they are trying to promote this new 'elite' system and previous editions, R/C car and goggles, you tripped over at retail for months.

Is it sad that I am really tempted by the Diable real world money auction houses?

Yes I know I'm evil, but late in WoWs life I made a part time job out of selling items/gold from WoW. Ended up finding a way to make about $12-$15 per hour, which isn't the best but I could do the work whenever I wanted.

Wonder how this will translate in D3.

And before purists get on me for ruining the game. I literally as close to addicted as a person. I grinded out Grand Marshal back when we had a team of people 10+ people that HAD to stay on for 12+ hours a day or else botters/sharers would surpass us on durotan. So I put in my dues. Luckily I cashed them in before it really started to go downhill.

I now have interest in D3. Man... You think I would learn from World of Warcrack

Because they were "losing" money by selling the hardened edition because of the elite pass. This marketing is great. First you get a round of people in the elite. They want to level up their clan as fast as possible so they recruit friends that have to buy the elite.

Also it creates a base of elite players and those that buy CoD will see all the perks that the elite players have and be "convinced" to buy it.

Don't really like the change personally. I thought the small thumbnails fit fine for the covers of CE guides, but with CE's for games, I think it's more fitting to have larger pictures displaying to see all that's included. I realize you can zoom into each thumbnail to see them larger but that's an extra step, and I don't really feel like it reduced scrolling that much. Plus it now kind of looks like a big wall of text which makes it look boring to look at. I also don't like having all the thumbnails in the corner, it looks kind of odd on my monitor

That's just my opinion though and I did make it a wiki so that it could be restructured if desired. If others also like the new format then by all means let's keep it this way.

Yeah, lets work on it because the old style is really obtrusive. The pictures can go wherever so left-justified is easily doable; I just figured it looks neater with them to the right. It's not my thread and not a huge waste if people don't like it, so just revert the changes if that's the case. If you do that, I'd recommend using the existing template and just pasting the pictures back in because there was a lot of consistency issues where stuff wasn't bold or spacing was off.

One thing I do agree on is the pictures should be the highlight and not spoilered or anything like that. Maybe the special features should be?

I don't really consider this my thread either, it's more of a community thing so I do appreciate your formatting changes and it's one of the reasons I made the thread a wiki.

I was playing around with the format a little and I think it looks better to me with the thumbnails on the left side. It just seems more in line with the descriptions, instead of having them float out there on the right, and it breaks up the text a little more.

I don't want to make any conclusive decisions though, so I'd really like it if others chimed in with their say

edit: noticed you posted while I was typing this lol

Ugh, if I could count on the picture being the same size every time then what I tried looked pretty sweet. Otherwise it might be a chore to format each time because of spacing. OK, I'm going to try reverting back to fullscale pics again but format the includes better. I think this will be the definitive version that is a crowd-pleaser.

For sure. I did have a wicked sick looking format where the tiny picture sat to the left of all the details, but every time you open the list. . .it just wasn't going to work out. That and because the pictures vary in size meant you had to add more return lines between each and because people have different browsers it would get messy. This is the best I could come up with while being clean cut and I think it looks great.

Jumped on the DIII CE from amazon as soon as it was available. Although I'm thinking about pre-ordering it at GameStop instead (the horror!) because I have some gift cards. I've just never preordered a CE in-store at GS, and I'm a little worried it'll be all damaged or something. (IE: What those bastards did with Deus Ex:HR)

just noticed the SfXtekken in my goldbox.. think im gonna pass though. Looking it over it doesn't have anything worth a damn.. If the comic book was an artbook it may be worth it but it looks like you get a comic book, some really cheap looking coin bank (wtf?) and some lame DLC.. or 'gems' I need to look up info on this game, the bit ive read on the gem system sounds really stupid. Hopefully the Tekken X streetfighter game is better.

Maybe we'll see this thing for like 17 bucks at target in a few months like marvel vs capcom was

I just cancelled my Uncharted 3 CE. I'll wait for the price drop on this one. Hopefully it doesn't go the way of Batman Arkham City which seems to be sold out everywhere for the Ps3. I've also been waiting for a restock on MW3 Hardened Editions, but none yet. Wonder if LE/CE are finally being created in limited quantities.

No more Sony. No more. Already got burned on Killzone 3 Helghast (and I even bought that POS when it was price dropped) and really took it up the ass on the inFamous 2 Hero Edition. :bomb:

I am going to wait for UC3 to drop. :D

I think UC3 will take a little longer to drop since t's Uncharted and will likely sell much better than those games did. I think most CE's do drop in price however, I wouldn't consider that a Sony thing. On the other hand, some CE's that Sony has put out have become much harder to find including LBP2's CE and GT5's.

Personally I don't care for the UC3 CE. I like the box it comes in but really have no need or space for it. I definitely don't need the drake statue, or buckle. Really, I just want the Steelbook and nothing else :D

Yeah, the problem for me is not waiting for a drop, but knowing when to get a CE/LE before they thin out (meaning a much higher price in the long run, and less chance for me getting it). I regret more when I don't get a CE than when I pay too much for a CE

I wish there was a store that would sell only the special tin cases. That's all i really want. I could care less for the dlc or artbook. Like , Say i bought a regular edition batman: ac, just go to lets say a website and just order the steelbook from there. No game just cases. Maybe I should start my own company that sells these things. Order about 5k cases of each game or movie that comes out. And sell them for about 5 to 10 bucks a pop, i think it would be pretty cool.
