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.

edit;


FYI everything from 2:32 on is the standard edition of the game, so the dark edition includes the full-size hard bound art book, the Witcher necklace, and the making of DVD.

I'm pretty surprised with everybody else out of stock and ebay already going 170+ for this, TRU suddenly had it in stock.

I will need to monitor if it comes back in stock after release, if that happens I will just return it. I can return online items in TRU B&M store right?

I want to play this game since I've heard so much about it, but I haven't played the first one. I'm tired of the supposedly 'limited' editions and retailers going out of stock when it's still up for pre-order. Then once it's released, it's suddenly in-stock again, or a week or 2 later. I'll just hold out on this one.

The artbook and necklace look great, but they are not worth an extra $54.99 to me (the price difference between the 'Enhanced' and 'Dark' versions of the game at TRU).

There is a strategy guide that is being released, but no hardcover either....

hmmm, now i'm starting to wonder just how limited the US release of the Dark Edition is going to be after all. Amazon just put the Dark edition back up for preorder..... interesting

There is a much better chance of amazon actually having it than TRU.

As for why inventory pops up right before release, isn't it pretty obviously? Credit cards get pinged and doesn't go through and the customer never changes it. And I'm sure that any good retailer holds a few back as a safety net.

By the way, that's the polish version right? Just because it's 4 digits doesn't mean the US release is only limited to 9999 copies.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Now this makes the decision difficult. Keep TRU order with the ability to return in store at no charge up to 45 days after release, or order from Amazon for $10 less due to no tax?

I switched to Amazon. I'm more comfortable with how they'll handle shipping plus $10 saved is good for me.

I'm almost certain the edition was limited to 3k per region but I don't have a link to back it up

Yeah, but unless your reason for returning it is Amazon's fault (e.g., damaged packaging), they'll deduct a small amount from your refund as a "restocking fee" (I'm not sure if it's scaled depending on the cost of the item, but it might be ~$5).

Yeah, but then you're charged for the return shipment. Probably not a big charge, but I'd guess somewhere around $5.

Looks like Amazon has 94 of them left in stock right now. Just ordered 2 from Amazon. Thinking about cancelling my TRU order now, but I may just keep them all and either flip two or return the two worst ones to my local TRU once they all show up.

Well, I'll never order from Toys "R" Us again, after they shipped my copy of Mass Effect 3 (Collector's Edition) in an oversize bubble mailer! The outer case was all banged up and the disc inside is loose! I'm glad I can return the game to my local TRU store...

Anyway, I placed my order for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (Enhanced Dark Edition) at CD Universe, last night. I hope it's securely packaged in a box instead of a bubble mailer...:pray:

Agreed. I ordered the Zelda Skyward Sword Gold Controller bundle through Toys R Us. Never again. They shipped it in a bubble mailer as well and it was completely beat to all hell by the time it got to me. I mean completely demolished. No matter how good of a deal it is, it's not worth it if the game arrives in shreds.

backorder as well...I guess it was worth a shot. I bit disappointed in myself about not grabbing it earlier, the artbook looks amazing. I was more excited about the write-ups as opposed to the art itself

Wooo

ugh...backordered. i put my order in at 7am ish EST yesterday.

what's even more annoying is that i had it preordered at gamestop and when i tried to change my CC info yesterday to use another card it canceled my preorder.

i went from thinking i was getting 2 copies to possibly no copies. i'm gonna call gamestop customer care but i have a feeling they're gonna tell me im SOL

That sucks for all the back-ordered folks. I'm glad I jumped on the Amazon deal in time but maybe TRU will honor a free copy of the standard edition like BB did for the ones that didn't get it after having confirmed orders.

Backordered my 2 copies as well.

Luckily I had 2 backups from Amazon coming

I should have just listened to myself....


Good luck.

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