Yeah The gamestop that actually had it, i called them this morning and the guy told me they didnt have anymore (he had me on hold for a lil while because I could hear him talking to a customer).. I went to another gamestop and they said that place i called had it, so i went there and a female who was working there got it for me.. So that guy on the phone was probably lazy or just didn't look. :bouncy:

Being a collector's edition , you probably have to swoop it up fast. Mine had a few indents on the cover sleeve, but I don't mind.

Its my first collector's edition, so Im not used to the larger size packaging compared to all my standard edition games lol

Btw, They got the regular edition for $19 now, and amazon also has it for $19 with free shipping =)
I figured CE would be cool to have.


i feel sad how i just got my ps3 almost 2 months ago and already i have as much games as you T^T

Not really saying much. I've had my PS3 for four years now and only have 34 games. Quality over quantity.

And only 6 games on 360; what a waste of money that was for a handful of good exclusives. :(

So, is the CE really worth 30? Is the soundtrack decent? Does it stack up to the quality music of the other games?

Where do you get gas gift cards at 20% off?

A lot of cash back rewards site lets you buy 20% off gift cards. I use shopper discounts and rewards, where you can buy mobil gift cards, GameStop gift cards and subway gift cards for 20% off. And some other restaurants etc. the catch is you can only buy 4 per month. It's a paid membership but there are ways to knock it down to $4 per month. My wife buys tons of cosmetics from drugstore.com and they provide 10% cashback there. It used to be 10% for buy.com, GameStop and 5% for bb, apple and newegg. But they nuked the rates last month so I am considering to switch to upromise.

Mathematically Correct.

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

I have literally no experience buying new from GS, didn't know they would do this for CEs as well:drool:



They absolutely do not gut CEs.

Oh yes, they do. If they're out of regular copies of the game, they'll open up a CE to have a display box.

Also stuff like Agarest War 2 and games that are ONLY CE's also get opened and displayed on the floor.

You couldn't be any more wrong.

Exactly. If a store gets only one copy of any LE, it gets gutted. I've been through hell and back trying to get some CEs at GameStop that are new.

Some of the music is recycled from XIII and was pretty much more of the same. None of it was very memorable, so I can't say it was good or bad TBH. It's the full soundtrack as well, so I'm going to take a wild guess and say you're getting that for less than an import would cost on top of the game itself. The game is also better than XIII was but still not quite up to FF standards.

I think it's YMMV but I can believe both. My area GS's don't gut CEs in general. The only gutted ones I saw recently was the Castlevania Judgement(?) that was part of last year's "summer?" sale. Forgot what they called it before "gamestock".

I wont be surprised if some people bought "new" games and the employee grabbing the same game disc from the used drawer. lol

I gave disc 1 of the soundtrack a quick listen last night on my laptop, sounds pretty nice. Not something you would play at the gym for sure, but if your just chilling/hanging out its not bad.

This CE is only $10 more than the standard game, and I think alot better than the newer packaged game with the book .

None of my Gamestops ever have any CEs leftover. I'm sure they would just be gutted even if they did, but I would love the chance to at least try to get one someday! haha
