Hell those 20-round rooms took me like 4-5 hours to beat. I liked playing it after I max-leveled my character because it was actually a challenge when nothing else in the game was anymore.


Yeah, Moxxie is 3 hours minimum on the larger challenges.

On a related note, I still say General Knoxx is the best DLC of any game I've played this generation.


If Knoxx had fast travel then I'd agree with you 100%, but since you had to do so much damn driving to get anywhere, I'd have to give the #1 DLC trophy to Minerva's Den for Bioshock 2.

Underrated game and vastly underrated DLC, Minerva's Den that is.

Also Amazon.de ships to the US. I bought my Sonic Generations Collector's Edition from them. Not sure if 360 will be region free, but PS3 is so I'll post a link to that.

http://www.amazon.de...42470567&sr=8-4

It's listed as 129 Euros, but they take the German tax off when shipping to the US, so it comes out to 109 Euros for the game and 14 Euros for shipping. So 123 Euros for the game shipped which is $150.xx. Only a few cents more as the US version!


Thank you i placed an order on that one, but know that i think about it, does this game comes in english or the package comes in other language , can you please comment on this.

My question is can I use it on either the PS3 or Xbox. Not sure if there is any sort of region locking like some movie disks.

Edit: Xbox and pc versions gone. I grabbed a ps3 version....all else fails i can still cancel.

Oh yeah and for those who don't want Fry's and want even another option, Play Asia has the Asian Version (PS3) for preorder and will have the US versions of the PC, 360 and PS3 versions soon for pre-order. Play-Asia has been really good about pre-orders in the past, but shipping is going to be EXPENSIVE!

Playasia is charging a $30 premium plus shipping. $189.99)

Ummm, checked my Frys.com order, says backordered. Don't know if all preorders say this, or not. Wasn't expecting much from Frys, but I don't know how they work their orders.

Got an email from Frys this morning


Thank you for your order. We apologize but the item(s) you
ordered are currently out of stock and we are unable to provide
a definite ship date at this time. However, we continually
receive new merchandise in our warehouse and we hope to fulfill
your order within the next thirty days or sooner if possible.

At this time, your order is still pending and will ship as soon
as the item(s) are in stock.


Wonder if it's just because they can't ship right now? Anyone know how Frys does pre-orders, or if they ever do pre-orders?

Seems like an automated, "oh crap, no stock to ship now" kind of email.

Dunno about Fry's but my order at JR.com is this way. I continually get backorder emails but it explains that that is normal and it's just because it's a pre order.

so... what exactly was your point.
that they are not in the list of retailers or this post by x-javen-x -

Just an FYI to anyone that ordered a ULCE from FRY'S over the last few days. I ordered one just as a "fingers crossed" kinda thing, being about 99% sure that at some point my order will be canceled. I also emailed their customer service about it to see what they would say, and here is the response I got. There is a glimmer of hope, but I'd say I"m still about 98% (down from my 99%) sure that it will be canceled, but anyway, here is what they said:


Thank you for contacting Frys.com.

We apologize for any confusion. We have confirmed with the Software department that we will be obtaining and sending out the game some time around September 18th. We have taken a good number of orders and do plan on selling the game. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you.

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

I ordered this yesterday, and today I can not even locate the item on their site. I don't know if this means they have filled their quota of orders or if they have pulled the item and are getting ready to send out the cancellation apologies. The latter is my guess, but we shall see...

Got the sorry email as well. Bummer.

Guess I'll wait a couple days but I'm going to call them and cancel so I can get that ridiculous hold on my account taken off rather than wait indefinitely for it to eventually be canceled in late September anyway.

I have never preordered from Fry's, seems like their online departments needs lots of improvement.

How hard is it to negotiate with the supplier the approximate number of stock coming in, and accordingly allocate online stock? If you offer the preorder feature, at least get the basics right...

Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

when did you order? and when did you get the email?

maybe there was a cut off point towards the tail end.

i'm bracing for it but have not gotten it and i ordered monday morning, got a call for credit card approval monday morning as well.

I'd want word from Gearbox, not a CS agent who is probably in India. Won't know for sure till like Sept anyways

So unless you pre-ordered at GS, Amazon or BB you're fucked. Damn.

I guess I'll hold on to some small sliver of hope that they make just the chest available post launch to those that end up buying other versions.

well, atleast it says limited quantities available.

my thing is why is it so hard for everyone to believe that other stores besides the ones on the list might get a limited quantity... it could happen.
