props for serving in the military. u can buy/do whatever the hell you want. :applause:

I'm doing pretty well at the moment. Just got out of the military and have money banked up, my wife just got a job, and I'm getting ready to submit my claim for disability for the VA and get my tax-free $900 minimum a month. Plus, my tax return just came in for ~$4500.

If I was worried about my finances right now, I wouldn't be buying games period. But not having a job is nice for the time being because I get to spend time with my 2-year-old during the day, time I never had with her before, and it will give me time to play ME3.

Edit: My wife would definitely agree with you both though...

this might be at goHastings still? I already have it preordered but if you select preorder it will let you go to the checkout, so I can only assume it's still available here.

i keep seeing people claim they knew nothing about this and im confused as to how. the CE always had a dlc character and mission listed as one of the features. it was one of the reasons i went with it when i preordered months ago.


Haha, I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I just figured it was a typical random and almost unnecessary piece of DLC. Never looked at the intricacies and wrote it off. No biggy though.

Given you are getting $10 credit from amazon on the regular edition,which would likely be the MS points cost equivalent of the DLC in question, it really doesn't change the value equation if you think about it....If you didn't think the other CE extras weren't worth the extra $20 before, it really isn't any different now that you know about this new DLC info...and it isn't like ME DLC is all top notch...some of it is quite good, others, not so much (I'm looking at you Kasumi), The DLC in question may turn out to not be all that interesting or cool.


Yeah, true. I just figured the whole character with the DLC and how it pertains to the story sounds a little more interesting / important than usual. You're very right about it may not even being that interesting or cool, but it's hard to not feel that it will be after reading Promethean. Haha.

I wouldn't worry about it yet anyway..

dont forget that the character might work like Liara does in ME2 wherein she's in the game regardless, but only as a NPC if you don't have the dlc. Either way you still get the part of her story that pertains to the core game.

:applause: Kudos to you, sir. I'm torn between ordering this now, holding out for Amazon to get it back in stock (and being able to use credit, getting another $10 credit, and release day delivery), or just going to a B&M store the day/night of release.

Can anyone weigh in on the odds of Amazon getting it back in stock?

Bioware mentioned earlier in the month that they wouldn't be putting out any more CE before launch. My money's on it being a while before they resupply. Gamestop still seems to be offering the PS3 version of the CE though.

Yeah, that sounds about right. Not to mention I doubt they're going to resupply, at this point if you wanted a CE and haven't pre-ordered one you'd probably be better off going to a retailer on day one. Preferably a Best Buy / Target / Wal-mart / Fry's.

Or if your super desperate and don't mind spending 100+ on it you can pre order off ebay.

Yeahhhh, no. Not that desperate! Looks like unless Amazon gets some in stock, I'll be heading out to a store. Hopefully a place near me has a midnight launch!

This talk about the MW3 Hardened edition cancellations at Gohastings had me worried so I called them up. They said, without any hesitation, that they already had them in stock this time and could fulfill all their pre-orders.

So, anyone who pre-ordered from there shouldn't have anything to worry about. Not that that's going to stop me from worrying until I have it in my hands.

I'd say zero to none pre-release. Post-release, however, there's a very slim chance. Whenever a CE sells out, Amazon almost always puts it back up for a very short period because of returns.

There's also usually some that comes back into the order availability because people forget to update their credit card information or some other stupid move that prevents the order from being processed.

I doubt you will see any more from now until release date save the occasional pre-order cancellation, though they're likely to be non-existent at this point.

Maybe in the first 30 days after release, with returns, though beyond that, it should depend if EA allows any more stock to hit the channel besides pre-orders. After 30 days post-release, I'd say that it's likely to be gone.

Everyone that was running around the last few weeks trying to secure a pre-order, good luck with that, though it's been months of time before now that could have a pre-order secured.

I learned my lesson after ME2. With that, I tried preordering the special edition three weeks before it came out on 360, only to find it sold out everywhere.

I made sure to pay off this one off completely back in November.

They cut off preorders in stores for awhile. I think when it came back it was only for Online. So yeah, you can't do it in stores.

crap. And I bought a Gamers Unlocked membership today just for the $20 preorder bonus. Is GS the only place taking preorders for it? Can I preorder there in store?

ETA: Scratch that. I preordered from Frys. $3 shipping but no tax which makes it cheaper than I would have gotten it at GS. Anyone preorder from them before? How fast are they?

I used to preorder from FYE all the time because i had a very large gift card there... they cancelled games on me a LOT, sometimes even with the quickest shipping games wouldnt come for a week or two... it was always way worse with anything but standard edition games too. Worst experience ive ever had shopping for games really. Just saying... be careful

Yeah, this has happen a friend a lot too. Anything that was limited would either usually get canceled (if he did it late) or shipped out way late.

I don't think many places are taking preorders. Some people have places that do, but to me it looks like they will get their orders canceled. If you really want to try Best Buy, you can show up opening day and see if maybe they got an extra one you can buy. Of course if you have time and such. If you break down and can't find a CE to buy, you can always buy the Standard at BB and still get the $20 buck bonus.

Hi guys...didn't have time to check the prior posts but GoHastings has CE copies for 360 and ps3.

Shipping + tax isn't too bad either.

No they don't. They only have the CE for the PC version left... they sold out within the last few days.

If I find a B&M store with a midnight launch, or go early when a store opens the morning of release, am I likely to find any CE copies in-stores? Or will the chains hold their copies for pre-orders?
