Damnit I was hoping to get this when I got the $10 promo from Skyrim. Any chance Amazon will get more of the CE guide?

So stupid the guide needed to have the same release date as the game, especially since it's Friday. Whatever happened to having the guide come out a week before the game?

Basically Amazon got caught on 2 lies.

1) Last week, reps were quoted with absolute certainty that the reason there was no release day shipping (part of being a prim member...) was because Prima was not able to provide stock by Thursday. That being said, they did get stock on Thursday and just screwed all prime members over with lame shipping.

2) They continue to sell the guide when they clearly knew they did not have enough to take care of all orders. This was most likely do to the heated price war competition on the guide. "Get more sales, screw the customers!"

Honestly, Amazon NEVER used to be this bad or even think about pulling this chit off. But you better not complain or Amazon will apparently ban your and all associated accounts for good. :lol:

That's shitty, I re-ordered mine about the same time but it's shipping soon. Seems Amazon is not making any friends with these CE guides.

couldn't believe how many people were walking out buying this at $40 MSRP at best buy last night, lol.

$23 is still a lot but its a nice quality book. $25 or so is what i'd expect to pay full price for something like this.

well if the stock is truly this low $40 might end up being a good deal

Mine's in Shipping Soon status as well, since I was alerted to the auth against my credit card.

My guess is that if this doesn't come back into stock from Amazon by Monday, this may be a real limited-run guide like we had with Dragon Age CE.

Same here. Though it puzzles me that they would ship from Kansas... and now it is currently in Memphis, which is going the other way from where I live. Had it gone to Denver from Kansas, I might have mine tomorrow. Oh well no biggie. I can hold out till Monday :)

Still in stock at Barnes & Noble, but the price jumped to $34. There are 15% coupons out there though, and shipping is free over $25, so you can still get a guide for around $30 shipped.

You could sign up for their Club O trial. You also get 5% off orders. Just make sure to cancel it before they charge you

I signed up. I also turned off auto-renewal. Im thinking that I wont have to cancel and it shouldnt charge me when its over. This may be nice to have through Black Friday/Cyber Monday if they have any good deals.

Thanks for the heads up, went ahead and did the same. I saw it was going to be shipped by media mail though so I wouldn't expect it till after next week at the least :cry:

Anybody have any pics of the guide? Just how big is it?
This space reserved in memory of one of the greatest heroes we will ever know. He faced insurmountable odds and sacrificed all for what he believed in. He died so that we could delay the inevitable. His name shall be honored forever, and his legend inscribed into the annals of history forever. And his name was...

Marauder Shields.

It should be at 656 pages.

The Borderlands GOTY guide was massive at 400-something pages, so this Skyrim guide must be monstrous.

I have the Dark Souls one and that is the size of some college textbooks (380 pages, hardcover). This one must be beastly. Does anyone know if that digital map thing is website based or just a download?
