GS doesn't usually provide unexpected surprises in their games...manufacturer probably made plastic cases at different weight classes.

Oh lord. I thought it was something wrong with my scale but I have calibrated it and each time the AZ copies are at 3.4/3.3oz like your BB copy but my gamestop one is at 4.0oz each and every time.

I had at first thought maybe GS had some sort of exclusive voucher but the barcode on all copies is the same.

Guess I'll just cross my fingers.


The limited edition came with a soundtrack that was slipped into the game case for the game itself, maybe some how one of the ones you have got the soundtrack with it by mistake.

Why wouldn't there be a disc in your cases? That's one in a million, and next to lottery chances for it to happen to both.

Just sell them.

If you are really that worried, which you shouldn't be IMO, just pick your MGR copy in one hand and pick up another PS3 game in another. Trust me, you can tell if there is no disc in a case. It's a pretty noticeable difference. If you notice a significant difference in your two hands when holding them both up, then I'd be a little concerned.

I'm not saying that it is missing a disc but even though .6oz (the exact weight of a game disc) doesn't sound like a lot it is actually quite a large variance for two copies of the exact same game.

I have a fairly expensive scale that is supposed to be accurate to .01 of an oz.

So it is concerning to me when one copy of a game is 3.4oz and the other is 4.0oz.

I have never run into this before and I have sold a lot of games. The only time that weight has varied that much for the same sealed copy of a game is when retailer specific games are involved (i.e. a different sku) and one retailer has an extra item package in or if the first print contains something extra like the skyrim map.

If you've picked up and have been gaming for years, you have a muscle memory of what a game case should feel like weight wise with a disc.

Sometimes when I'll forget and put a disc in another case and if I pick up the original case with no disc in it, I'll immediately know right away by the weight no disc is in there without even looking.

The only other thing I can think of is maybe the cases were manufactured in different places and one is slighter lighter with the plastic or something.

Sometimes I get game cases that look a little different on the inside than another. The spindles look a little different or whatever.

What you should try is to put two disc inside a ps3 game and weigh that if it's 4.0 then Sion might be right that you might have gotten the soundtrack or just put some sheets with codes on them inside the case and weigh it like that also.

Why not just return one if you don't feel comfortable with the weight of it?

After everything I've been through with Amazon I'm not returning anything to them.

I'm just going to mail it out and cross my fingers. As someone else mentioned the odds of getting a sealed game without a disc is very slim and I'm sure the odds of getting two copies from the same retailer that are both missing discs is slim to none.

Didn't the max payne 3 regular and special edition have the same barcode? That might be the case here.

i've had many of the same games weigh different, i don't think it's anything to worry about

wait, they just updated it.

Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.


360 edition is still up, so if you want to gamble on your order being damaged/fine I would order it now I guess.

no, they're just "reviewing" their shipping process because of the damage lamps, they did this with BlazBlue when people received crushed boxes

All the broken lamp talk got me paranoid, and I finally got around to opening my PS3 version.

It looked in almost perfect condition and worked fine. Not too shabby of a collectible.

Still irked by the G1 sized steelbook.

I just got mine from zavvi yesterday it was sent to my gf first who is in the uk right now and she sent it out Friday in the exact same box she just slapped a label on it and used fed-ex. In my package zavvi didn't use any kind of package stuffer just plastic from those strips of bubbler but it was flat so there was no point xD it was basically cardboard on cardboard sent in a box a little bigger than the MGR one itself. So there was a bit of damage on the box Posted Image

Just had to share A pic of this great packaging lol so all in all the bottom front right edge was A tiny bit damaged but nothing too bad tho. I wonder if you order straight internationally if'n they pack it A little better for the trip luckily mine got to me alright so I am happy and the figure and the game are beyond my expectations :)

I'm on mobile and I'm only seeing a red X :( I guess ill have to wait until I get home. But your gf sent it for you? Hmmm... Makes me afraid that if zavvi had sent yours (rather than your gf), the damage wouldve been worse..

^ Very nice! That steelbook is much nicer than the one we got with the lamp. Such a stupid decision for the NA LE for PS3 to be G1 instead of G2. Plus that unbranded one looks much better as well.
