Looks like my local BB did a pre-pull.

Will these guides work with the SKU swap trick, and does anyone have the SKUs for these?

somebody mentioned gamestop may have their futurepress guides for $4.99. i inquired about the kingdoms of amalur guide at the store and it is still $26.99. but i still need to buy the SC5 guide to bundle with my unopened game on craigslist.



That was me. I stated what you did, all but Reckoning are $5.


Did the hardcover soul calibur 5 drop to $4.99? Or is it still $10?



It's $5 now.

Grabbed 2 copies of Dragon Age Origins Guide (sealed) at Toy R Us for a penny each.

Not sure if guys know about this, but this guide has a high resale value if new/sealed.

Thanks. Are the hardcover Future Press guides like Soul Calibur shrinkwrapped? I'd like to get them as mint as possible but I'm not sure if I should pass and keep looking at a different store if I come across one that isn't shrinkwrapped.

Going off memory I believe they always are shrinkwrapped. My Reckoning guide is still sealed.

This is one of the most level-headed, informative, and defensible posts I've ever seen in one of the PG threads; cheers!

I wish I weren't afflicted with can't-be-arsed-itis so I could try this. Although the potential payoff of combining this and a possible TRU price match into one expedition might be a remedy...


Thanks for that comment. My experience just goes to show that sometimes being patient and/or nice pays off. I like to think of it this way - you can always play the asshole card at any time, but once you open that door, there's no easy way to shut it.

Hope some other folks have good luck finding guides - cheers.

Does anyone know if there are any other recent Future Press guides besides these?

Kingdoms of Amalur
Dark Souls
Deus Ex
Soul Calibur V

I did find Amazon's list http://www.amazon.co...&qid=1349554771
So I guess that's everything. Seems like there were a couple of other ones though.

They also did the guides for Portal 2 (fantastic) and Bayonetta, though the latter is incredibly rare/expensive now.

I grabbed Dark Souls and Soul Calibur V. It was probably just GS not caring, but the DS guide was sealed and the SCV was not.

Reckoning $27 for me as well. I checked the hardcover guide. Is there a softcover that might explain the discrepancy?

There's hardcover versions of the Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 guides that FP put out, as well as Portal 2, all of which were Europe only. Plus, as others have said, some of the guides, such as Bayonetta, were only hardcover guides and only in Europe.

Are you talking about the Portal 2 Hardcover guide? Should I buy one soon in case they go up in value? On Amazon the hardcover is only slightly more than an unused regular edition.

No, the "rare" one I meant was the Bayonetta guide ("latter" means the second of two things :razz:).

I understand what the word "latter" means. You said the portal 2 guide was "fantastic." I am wondering if it's worth the price people are asking for it on Amazon.com. Should I spend an extra $10 for the hardcover?

Hentai isn't really my thing, so I don't have much interest in playing Bayonetta :-P

Ah, I see; I apologize if I came across as condescending.

To answer your question, I'd say yes, go ahead and get the hardcover for $10 more. I didn't realize the hardcover existed until I bought the softcover, and I'm not willing to buy it again, but if I hadn't gotten the softcover, I'd have gone with the hardcover.

A game like Portal 2 truly deserves a hardcover guide. 8-)
