Thank OP. Been waiting for this one. Maybe it's time I finally get back to this game. I beat it but haven't touched a single DLC even though I bought the season pass.

It's hard to pay 2X the price since TRU had it for $29.99 as a bundle special. Maybe it'll drop lower. I won the a copy of the season pass, and I only played RAAM'S SHADOW. Didn't care for the MP...Just my two cents.

I'm a sucker for Art Books, so I grabbed one of these even though I already have the Vanilla.
I'll trade that in, and sell some of the other extras to get back close to even.

might be worth checking instore - its marked as 35% off at my local BB, if you can stack 35% off with $60 then you're down to $40 - very ymmv though

Really nice find, pretty good deal for anyone who doesn't own the game yet. I think my price to get it since I own a standard copy would be around $30 or $40.

I bit on this. I was very disappointed that I missed the TRU sale, but this price is great too!

Thanks!

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:wiiu: The Wonderful 101

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

great deal if you are a big fan of the series. Like the game but seriously 3.0 may be a completionist's worst nightmare.

Big GoW fan and love the third game, planning on selling my vanilla copy (paid $15 for) and the multiplayer DLC in this version to help cover the cost of the Epic Edition. The Marcus Fenix statue should look great next to my Halo Reach one. :)

To hell with it, I'm buying one before all the boxes get beat to shit. Hopefully this one won't be completely busted up.

Good call, even though I traded in my 360 console, I will keep the Halo Reach statue, it is super awesome.

Thanks OP. I've been checking the price here and there since this was released - I only have 1 TRU that only gets vanilla games.
Less than 1/2 off works for me. Now to get rid of my release day copy.

I couldn't seem to pull the trigger when it was on sale on TRU for $60, the shipping & taxes were what killed it. So to me this is still a decent buy, but I wonder if should wait till BF and hope they still carry some or just buy it now.. Don't even own a 360, man I really didn't want this edition since Ill have more shit crammed in my apartment but I figured I'll just start cleaning up crap I don't actually use like the RB & GH leftover stuff.

People in my area must not like gears of war for some reason, as they still have 10+ gears consoles for about 300, and at least 5 epic editions. Will wait for a further price drop.

This tells me that I won't be buying anymore CE or LE editions of new games. I did get Gears Epic off ebay for $75, but I did buy Killzone 3 HE for $129, ooch. I have such a backlog of games, it doesn't make sense to buy CE or LE editions at launch anymore. Just my opinion of course.

Ouch, if I would've had the money to shell out when KZ3 I would have. Luckily I didn't, and managed to score it for $25 last year during the BF sale.

Which is why I was doubtful if I should or shouldn't buy the Epic Edition of GoW3. But considering it's one of Microsoft's Flagship games, I'm pretty sure the price of this won't dip that much even if they do have excess inventory left by the holidays. But who knows, Best Buy has surprised me several times already.

However I do definitely agree, I have way too many of these damn boxes, but I just can't seem to control myself.. Either way, it's a smart thing what you did, because many CE's don't get mass produced this much, so if the value skyrockets you'll be glad you bought it, But hey, at least you didn't buy the Balls of Steel edition of Duke Nukem right? 8-)

This was a cool game for a month or so when people actually played it. Easily put 100+ hours into it during that span. The player base seemed to drop off dramatically once MW3 and BF3 came out. Then the whole pay for DLC to stay on dedicated servers turned me off forever.

Decided to bite. Im such a sucker for these collectors editions, plus I own the 1st and 2nd limited editions so might as well round off the series. Thanks OP!

It will probably sell out on bestbuy.com before Amazon does match. Is it worth the risk just to save $3 in taxes?

Ouch is right, and yeah, I did buy Duke Nukem BOS edition at launch for $99. I preorded it when it was stated as truely limited, that is before they decided to make enough for everyone on planet earth. No more CEs and LEs for me, I will now wait and watch the prices fall. Maybe it will help me clear my backlog too.
