Does Frys do the Best Buy tactic on pre-orders and continue to charge/hold your credit card? I got one of these reserved at Buy.com, which I am not sure about. I don't want a continuous hold charge from Frys especially when nobody is 100% sure they will even honor the pre-orders to begin with. If people can still continue to pre-order this rare item after a day or two and they don't shut off pre-orders and say that this item is sold out/unavailable when their quota has been reached, then I would find this pre-order from Frys to be unreliable and I may cancel. Maybe they will send customers some sort of credit/make good compensation if they cannot fulfill their pre-order obligation?

I don't see it being that big of a deal if Fry's places a hold on your CC funds. It costs about $175 shipped. Unless your credit card has a credit limit of $500 - what's there to really worry about? O.o

If they cancel your order eventually, can't you file a complaint and get some store credit? Anybody had luck with doing this at Fry's?

Never mind. It is back because some marketplace seller is listing a pc copy for $699?

This may be getting a bump in prints. Just noticed amazon has the listing added back to the item page. For the last several months the ultimate loot chest was not even shown and now is back on the page although it can't be ordered so maybe more copies are coming to retailers.

I'm sure this has been asked and answered but; what is the actual chest made of? I would guess it would never along the lines quality wise as uncharted 3 collectors edition. I just can't see paying more for this than I did my entire game system

Or maybe they just added the listing back up since it is getting closer to release and cancellations could start coming?

Hope so. Would love to order from amazon with free release date or 3.99 overnight shipping.

It is not the actual HOLD process of the credit card that bothers many as long as you actually get the item in the end. I guess to have the funds held on an rotational cycle and then there is no absolute guarantee that they will fulfill all pre-order obligations is an concern. You could have those funds temporarily locked up and this could potentially prevent some from ordering this somewhere else. I know in a perfect world everyone should have more than a few hundred dollars credit available to their credit card or bank account, but this is called CHEAP ASS GAMER for a reason. Many people are not well to do as they are high school kids, college students or people with a ton of bills and have only a certain amount of expendable cash. They need to stretch that amount to cover the most games with the cash they have available.

It's not a perfect world but if one were that hard up on cash and funds then in the end of the game they really shouldn't be focused on spending a $150 on a video game. Given this unique CE and how difficult it's going to be acquire one, it's not giving up too much by dealing with a CC hold. It's not ideal to have a retailer take preorders on something that will possibily end up not being fulfilled but it's the best option we have left now.

$14 for the rental of a time machine doesn't bother me at all. I placed an order for the PS3 version.

I'm wondering though, is there any version (360/PC) that you guys would expect would be more likely for Fry's to have? I've got the vanilla PS3 version preordered at Best Buy, so all I'd really need would be the chest and the goodies.

Anyone thinking they will walk into a store and buy this after launch day is going to be sorely disappointed.

On the other hand, these same people probably don't know the difference between the 2 special editions and will be on CAG minutes after buying the Deluxe Vault Hunter edition to tell us about the huge score they just had, lol.


while moments later furiously accusing a shop of ripping them off since the loot chest was removed from their box.

I was so pissed I missed out on the preorder for this...now it's available I can't pull the trigger. I'll be satisfied with Vanilla. Or maybe I'll randomly find one a year from now at Best Buy for $29.99 haha!


You're probably not going to be that lucky. I'm gonna preorder. Worst thing they can do is not send it.

I placed an order, this is probably the best shot I even have at getting one. But I'll expect a cancellation and be pleasantly surprised if it actually shows up.

Damn, didn't realize the demand for this was so high, or I would have ordered on Amazon.

Well, I'll prolly snatch it up if it goes back in stock at Amazon. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with the base game + $10 credit.

that pretty much caught everyone off guard... the gamestop employee said the preorder window was only open for like a week or two. i totally missed it - so i got one thru ebay and now hopefully frys will come thru, one way or another i'm gonna get one.

Grabbed one, hopefully it will ship. The shipping is a bit high, but no tax makes the cost more palatable. I'm still kicking myself for vacillating on pre-ordering when Amazon had them in stock.

Yeah, if these are limited, there's NO chance there will be extras at Gamestop. The manager at the one I reserved mine at was commenting about how she was pissed she missed out. I'm sure she won't pass up the opportunity to pick one up if there's any left, and if they are worth money the employees will get wise to it immediately and buy them for ebay or to save.

Yup even people with gs connections will be pissed on this one.

I pre-ordered one since they don't charge until shipped.

Have they announced the quantity of this edition anywhere?
