hmm most of you are getting multiple copies it seems. Is it even profitable to resell it?

If things go like every other Blizzard CE, you'll see a bunch of copies show up on Amazon around release date as people cancel their pre-orders, and you'll also see other stores that are currently sold out start selling the CE again. Then in a few months you'll find the CE at Fry's for 30% off list.

I think they intentionally limit during the pre-order period to get people hyped on on buying it on the off chance they won't be able to pick it up later, but there will be more than enough copies out there for you to pick one up eventually...most likely below retail but at worst case just slightly above retail.

You probably won't make a profit reselling after you factor in ebay, paypal and shipping fees (which most people seem to completely ignore when calculating their "profit") unless the prices go up 50% from retail.

Of course, there are exceptions (I think to myself while looking at my unopened copy of Mass Effect 2 CE).

I think the window for that has closed. It's become more and more apparent that these are not going to be as scarce as some thought.

I just want a copy of D3 on release day. But I really want the CE. If it comes to May 15, and I still didn't get one, I might just go ahead and buy a digital copy.

dem craigs list ads show some people want to make a quick 50-100 bucks which I suppose is possible but yeah... I think you're right on the intentional limitation.

I want diablo 3, i'm just not sure if the extras are worth $40+ to me.

i don't care about the soundtrack, artbook, usb stick with diablo 2.

the wow dlc is worthless to me since i don't play wow so i would pretty much be paying $40 extra for aesthetic wings on my d3 characters and 2 starcraft 2 portraits? can someone tell me if the dlc for d3 is worth or does anything for my characters in d3 other than looks or is it just for bragging rights like recon armor in halo.

All of the 'extra' DLC is cosmetic and has no impact on gameplay. It's simply vanity items.

So, I guess it'd be like the recon armor.

Interesting as I couldn't care less about the DLC and only want the physical bonuses. To me the DLC is worth pretty much nothing but to each his own!

Why the hell would you even consider paying the extra $40 for digital wings? If you're not into the physical extras then the CE obviously isn't for you.

I'm about to cancel my CE order. I've thought about it and, well, the physical goodies don't justify the 40 (or even 50 if I can snag the Micro Center deal!) extra clams. I'm not THAT huge of a Diablo fan.

Giving a heads up here if anyone wants one off Amazon.

People are running bots and crap to get these so unfortunately, warning anyone doesn't do much good. Although I'm watching my email for instock alerts from other stores :D

i guess it's the ocd i have that makes me want to feel that my characters are "complete"

but you're probably right. i'll justify against buying it by telling myself.. it's like spending $40 on a shirt for your xbox live avatar.

i better refrain myself from spending real money in the real money auction house. btw, with the introduction of a real money auction house, is this going to make "gold farming" more profitable and start a new wave of gold farmers in china?

Yeah, I figured that :(. I thought maybe if I posted here, a fellow CAG could jump on it and and have the advantage of knowing "Hey, that guy cancelled his pre-order, maybe it'll pop back up!" I know there's absolutely no way for me to prove that one way or another of course but....eh. XD.

I didn't know people were using bots/etc. to camp the page! I guess I should have expected that. In the Warehouse Deals thread..people were nuts with the Vita camping using add-ons, etc.

Well, anyway. XD

The only bummer about this is that it's shipped to be received on the 15th instead of the 14th so I can't play at midnight.

=(

I might end up buying a copy at Gamestop's midnight release and then asking blizzard to transfer over the SE keys to my brother's account so he can play after I get my CE.

Considering blizzard takes a generous chunk of your total before Paypal's fees.....I'd say no,
