I was FINALLY able to get one. It had release day delivery, too, so that works out perfectly.

I was about to go to sleep and decided to check one last time on Amazon. I FINALLY was able to get it! I'm so happy!!! And with Release Day Delivery for only $0.99. AND...I forgot that I had some credit in my account. My total came out to $80.98 with RDD.

Damn...so glad I didn't go to sleep yet. Still can't believe I was able to score one. :D


EDIT: Out of curiosity, I checked to see how many they have in stock. Input a count of 999 in the checkout screen and it didn't give the usual, "Quantity has exceeded the XXX amount available for this item." I wonder if they actually have a ton more available for sale or if the quantity available isn't in their systems due to these selling out so fast.

EDIT 2: Well, that answered my question. Apparently it's the latter reason as they are once again sold out.

Congrats, man. I guess it was in your fate all along. :)

Huh, looks like they either got a lot more units allocated or a ton of people decided to cancel, seeing as it's still available this long.

EDIT: I spoke too soon. Now they're out.

Showing as sold out again, that was quick. As people cancel or credit cards are denied, it should continue reappear just like collectors edition mass effect 3 did.

Many of you guys seem to like doing things the hard way. Just grab Check for Change or Page Monitor and learn how to use it. It'll take you about 5 minutes.

Couldn't you set whatever you're using to monitor the item on Amazon's mobile site?

You can certainly look at the mobile site on a desktop.

This game hasn't really been on my radar until a day or two ago. I've been on the fence on whether I should get the CE edition but looking back at my past collector/special edition games, most of the stuff barring artbooks I've haven't really enjoyed past the "new shiny" experience. Nonetheless, saw a humorous unboxing of the CE:

You should be able to select just a certain bit of text that needs to change instead of just anything on the page.

I use Page Monitor in Chrome. Right click the icon for it, Options, check custom mode for the page you already are monitoring. Dropdown should say 'Selector', then click 'Pick'. It'll load the page, you select the element you want to monitor, then click 'Done' in the bottom right corner of the window (this is the part you might be missing). Beyond that, there isn't any saving.

You also should have it check more often than default, every five minutes or so.

Check 4 Change for Firefox is much easier to use; you just highlight the text you want to monitor, right click, choose a refresh interval (30 seconds is the most frequent), and you're done.
