Opinions wanted! Is this worth an upgrade from the standard edition w/novella? And why the hell doesn't Best Buy have XIII-2 listed for 360 in their trade lookup? :-k

It came up for me. It's $8, just like the PS3 version.

Ahh. Nevermind. They made a typo and wrote it as XII-2 for the 360 version. And since I haven't been to sleep yet, my brain couldn't process it. :razz: I locked in a $15 trade-in value on Amazon while I figure out what the best (if any) approach to take is. Thanks!

I think this is universal, saw it at that price at two Best Buys yesterday, picked up one of the novella version and now trying to unload my sealed CE I got from Amazon to get my money back.

They also had the Gears of War 3 Xbox 360, Arkham City, Max Payne 3, Prototype 2 and a few other CEs I'm blanking out on at 50% off but that may be YMMV.

Hmm...no collector's editions at my closest store. So I guess that means no novella bundled collector's editions either.

I guess I could go look at my local stores anyway. Maybe I'll find a vanilla copy/non-collector's edition bundled with the novella.

Picked up one of each this morning. They had the 360 version tagged at $29.99, but it rang up at $59.99. Upon further inspection by the manager, the tag was intended for the PS3 version. He matched the $29.99 price. Both versions were marked with a 30% off sticker, so I ended up paying $20.99 plus tax for each. Both had the novella.

I'd buy the Prototype LE for a decent price, probably $30 or less. It's $80 retail right now still in my area.

That versionnwas tagged $40 at my store.

While I was out, I checked to see if there were any lingering copies floating around at the 2 stores closest to me, but all I found were 360 copies (with novella) at full price.

The really frustrating thing is that I'm pretty sure the closest store only had non-novella vanilla copies during the Unlocked coupon sale (when I got mine) and blowout sale...but they sold out and restocked...and now both vanilla copies they have on the shelves are the novella bundles.

Yep, exactly what I've been seeing. A lot of stores recently got a shipment of novella standard editions.

FYI, my store just put the 360 version on clearance at $30. Possibly YMMV (it was in their store-specific clearance dump bin), but could be national given the previous ps3 version drop.

It's kinda sad that I see at least five collector's editions (3 PS3, 2 360) in my local store, and they've been unsold for over a month.

I think the 360 one I saw at my store was the collectors edition and novella shrinkwrapped together.

The 360 version of this has been $50 or maybe even $60 at my store for a while now. It is down to one copy (last time I checked) but the price hasn't budged. $30 I could finally bite on, but I don't even have that kind of money to spare at the moment... so I'm conflicted. Drop! Don't drop.

I am really torn on this. With all of the DLC there is for this game, I am waiting for them to release a complete edition, but no guarantee that is going to happen. Although with the 3rd (and supposedly final game) in Lightening's saga coming out, I wouldn't be surprised if a complete version was released at around the same time.

Hmm...I ended up getting a pair of the Novella copies back when it was on sale for 14.99...but then traded the games in like a week later because there was no way I'd be able to play through FF13 in the time it'd take for this to drop in price (still have the books, even).

Worth it for the soundtrack?

If anyone wants just the novella for the cost of shipping, drop me a pm. I recently traded in a copy of the game for 360 with a bunch of other things to Gamestop and kept the novella because it had no trade value.
