Sony didn't announce any system price drops during their press conf. at gamescon so it will be either tgs or b4 Thxgiving, if at all due to the currency issue.

Speaking of Sony's conference, those new games look absolutely fantastic.

i was really disappointed about that. they didn't announce the redesigned ps3 ultra slim either.

tgs has been a smaller and smaller event as the years have progressed, so i'm not sure we're going to get any major announcements there.

I don't think the strength of the yen is the issue (it actually currently slightly weaker than a year ago....78-ish vs 76-ish), but more the general slowdown in hardware sales this spring/summer. I think Sony got caught off guard a bit by this and now has a bit more PS3 inventory sitting around that they would like to sell off before the rumored new version comes out and makes them drop the price on all this existing inventory as well. Also I think Sony and MS are waiting for Nintendo to announce the WiiU price so they can respond, if necessary, with their own pricing moves.

Well I got my like new ME3 CE and my very good ME3 CE.

LN missing the following items: DLC, 4x6 lithographic print, cardboard envelope that holds extras, and patch

VG missing the following items: DLC, Mass Effect comic, 70-page hardbound art book

I guess I could make one complete version and trade in the game.

These are supposed to be complete except for dlc aren't they? (like not missing physical items)

another strategy they could take is introducing the newer slimmer model at the price the current models are going for, then dropping the price of the older models.

that way customers can buy the new one at a premium and the old ones at a discount.

As far as I know, they're supposed to include all physical items. I've ordered 5-6 CE's off of WHD, and all of them were 100% complete except for the DLC... Even the "Acceptable" ones.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

Considering you can trade your extra in for ~$16 on Amazon right now, I'd say you can salvage a good deal.

Yeah, I am going to go disc only to BB for $21 after GCU. (I have to check GS TIV first though.) I may also contact amazon to see what they say in terms of condition policy for warehouse deals.

(black model) i've been quoted $115 from amazon as a trade in (like new, which it is... never even used the headphones and was always in a case / screen protector) Is $115 a decent price or should i try to sell it for more?

Woot had refurb ones today for $139.99 (currently sold out)

Not sure if that helps put things in perspective.

It's definitely a toss up.

My Very Good PS3 one that was $18.80, came with everything, even the DLC.

$115 strikes me as more than fair.

Outside of the minor crease in the top left and the top (no creases here, just slight warping), everything inside is complete, and the game is still sealed, so I am glad I pulled the trigger. ^__^

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND Limited Edition, Condition: Acceptable - $20.67


I was pretty surprised it even arrived in this condition since it was listed as acceptable.

I am also curious to see how everyone else who bought one (there were 3) turns out.
