I'm not sure if its been posted yet, but the avatar weapons seem to be on sale or dropped in price. I bought the gold lancer for 240msp, and it was 320msp just the other day. I figured you guys on here might be interested.

So I downgraded to the Standard edition and I feel guilty about it. However, the $20 Amazon Giftcard comes in handy for Fifa 12 which is a week after Gears. And that also comes with a $20 Amazon Giftcard which would be used on Battlefield 3.

On another note, I walked through best buy and saw a pile of Halo Reach Legendary editions and Killzone 3 Helgast editions for 79.99. So I'm hoping to snag an Epic Edition somewhere down the line.


My BB has Reach Legendary marked down to $39.99.

And that is one reason why I don't buy Special Editions anymore. They don't hold their value and they are overproduced.

Just sold the code for $50 from the newegg ones I got for $40. Got paid $5 to keep reach and the bonus stuff. Gotta love those people that buy the dlc for insane amounts of money.

Gears LE seems to have sold out, and all of the previous Gears LEs have sold out as well.

That doesn't surprise me, it really cheapens these limited editions for me now whenever they're announced. I would probably jump on the epic edition if I didn't see Reach and Halo 3 Legendary's still on shelves.

I remember how ecstatic I was to carry that big ol halo 3 box home and opened her up. Then regretting paying 150 for it when it was on wal-mart.com for like 50 bucks lol

Also, I was very impressed with the reach statues in the pictures, but they had one on display at best buy and it felt real cheap. Especially when I picked it up and one of the hands fell off with the gun too. The marcus statue looks a lot sturdier though, and the glowing armor is pretty bad ass.

Calm down people. I have news from Rod Fergusson. about Seriously 2.0 and Veteran Gear. Along with a little more information about Walmart, Gears of War 3, and Veteran Gear.

http://epicgames.com...y/gears-of-war/
"Yes, Ticker madness for Seriously 2.0 and 25x for your wings is going on now till midnight on the 19th."

This is live right now. I checked out this morning. It is Wave after Wave of nothing but Tickers. You get 2500XP per Level of Horde on Casual. Also this is 25X XP and will last from now until Midnight on the 19th. So if you have not earned your Wings and got Veteran Gear now is the time to do so. I put a nice little EXP Calculator link below so you can track your progress towards Veteran Gear. If you have to you can also boost in Social King of the Hill. There is also another link to the Xbox 360 Achievements website Veteran Gear Comment Section from Gears of War 2. It has over 230 comments and people who are looking to get Veteran Gear as well. Is all else fails message these people and tell them you want to boost. Good luck.

Also I was at Walmart today (This was on a different thread) but they are going to have a Midnight Release Party and give everybody who attends to pick up the game the Savage Grenaider Elite, $20 Gift Card, and a Beanie. The beanie is all black and it says Gears of War 3 on the fron of it. Forehead region of the beanie to give you an idea of what it will look like. I would have got pictures today but was in a rush and left the cell phone in the car. I will try to get pictures later on.

Has any Best Buy deal been confirmed yet? I want to pick this up at the midnight launch there because its the most convenient location for me but with Walmart, Kmart and Amazon all offering $20 credit, I really hope Best Buy offers the same.

Target clearance is the store of stores for Special Edition games when you don't feel like paying anywhere close to full price. I have picked up a Reach Legendary for $38, Force Unleashed II CE for $19, MvC3 SE for $18, New Vegas CE for $19 and Fable III CE for $14 I fully expect to get an Epic or at the very least Limited for between $20-$40 at some point it's simply inevitable.

Way. It's a huge YMMV but he isn't lying. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same luck bilbo has :( I've gotten lucky a couple of times.

I searched "limited edition" in this thread to see if I found an answer to my question but no. Is Best Buy the only place that will be selling the limited edition?

I signed up for a notification from Amazon to inform me when the limited edition will be available.

In my experience so far, yes. I actually just cancelled my Amazon limited edition pre-order because I'd rather go to the midnight launch and get the baird skin lol.

but everywhere else I've attempted, no luck with the limited edition.

Hmm, so the option to preorder the L.E. was available before? Maybe Amazon doesn't want to over-order that edition and have that stock lingering around the warehouse.

I guess I'll have to drop by my nearest BB and pre-order it. Thanks :)

I thought about he Baird skin but once I saw the Best Buy commercial I decided not to. It doesn't say anything special about Baird.

I preordered awhile ago (May '11) at TRU when they had a spend $100 get $25 off your order when you pay with MasterCard.

At the time they had the limited edition at $89.99 and the Epic Edition at $169.99.

Both of those are priced over MSRP but I figured they'd drop when it got closer to release and I could get my credit back. I was surprised to find out that TRU STILL has these priced over MSRP. Does anyone know why or if they'll drop?

Thanks

As a matter of fact, I pre-ordered L.E from Amazon yesterday (cancelled today). So my guess is that its just sold out of the quantity they were expecting to order. As soon as I saw it available on Amazin I jumped on it and pre-ordered it. But when I went to best buy and discovered they were doing midnight releases I decided to just go and pick it up locally and cancelled.

Nice bonus I suppose but for those like me looking for a great GC incentive, this doesn't bode well for a Gears + GC offer from TRU. Damn, I was hoping TRU would come through. :cry:

I guess deals new definition should be "Either under priced, priced at normal or over priced which is up to solely the descretion of the person claming deal" since the "deals" thread is mostly just msrp shit anymore or someone posting a pre order msrp price and thinking its a deal. We have multiple forums for this shit for a reason.


can i get a explanation of what this means without flaming? thanks.
