Back up for preorder - never ordered from TRU online but comes with free shipping with release date availability. Not necessarily a 'deal' but since these are allegedly sold out in the US and UK the prices could skyrocket once they're gone for good!

Good luck!

This a good investment? I mean, some CEs drop like crazy.

Can't say for sure but it IS a limited run - limited enough for Best Buy to send out a free copy of the game and a 25 dollar gift card to the people whose order they couldn't fulfill.

I'd guess these TRU copies were ones preordered by people whose payment options were invalid when they were charged hence they were relisted.

Probably, still 106.99 and getting it in 4 days beats the inevitable 200+ range this will reach when the flippers hit eBay

Given my recent track record with TRU for my ME3 CE I wouldn't be surprised if we never see this

Ditto! I thought May was going to set me back a lot of $$$ but I was able to sell some Kid Icarus cards from the GameStop event to pay for this. And best buy still didn't cancel my prototype 2 steel book... Fingers crossed they just send me it!

Excellent, thanks OP. Missed out on the Amazon preorders and slept too long on this at gamestop. Hopefully they ship it in a box, TRU is pretty notorious for shipping things like this in a bubble mailer and having them get all beat to hell. (I used to be a senior supervisor at TRU.com and pretty much spent my days giving refunds for situations just like this.) *fingers crossed*

The rare talk sounds a bit like that which went on with Catherine limited editions. Good luck though to those buying that it actually is limited.

Hopefully common sense prevails. I'd expect from the unboxing video the package will be amout the same as the Fallout New Vegas set, maybe thicker. They'd send something that size in a box ..... Right??

I want this but my game room is getting to tight with all my games and CE boxes. I might go ahead and wait on getting the regular edition when it gets cheaper. I'm hyped for this game but my backlog is to big to keep on ignoring them.

There is a newer unboxing video on Youtube, will look for it in a sec.

On the side of the box they have large serial numbers, it's four digits so only a few thousand were made.

I'm torn. If this is actually rare, as it seems it is, I'll probably regret not buying it. But then $100 is a lot to drop on it, especially since I was simply planning on purchasing the regular edition when it hit $20 or less. Decisions, decisions.

EDIT: Aww, screw it. I ordered. Guess I have 45 days to decide whether to return it or not.

^ That's not the NTSC version though... so assuming the sticker on the side is the production number is it fair to assume that the number is only be produced in the U.S. region as well?
