Well, just placed an order at BB.com since you guys were freaking with "OMG this might be rarez" Used a $25 RZ certificate that I had, otherwise I wouldn't have picked it up since I have the digital on the PS3. Grabbed the 360 version for an easy 1000k to the GS when I feel like going thru it again choosing all different options (something I had intended to do anyway)

Funny b/c I don't even know whats special about this BB LE other than the cover art (?) when I went back to click on the product from the search results, I got this white error page and message:
'An error (301 Moved Permanently) has occured in response to this request.'

Something definitely strange is going on with it..


From the item description on BB.com...

Limited Edition includes a door poster to help you show off your fandom


In other words, nothing that special.

Picked up 2 vanillas, both as gifts since I have the downloaded version already. Best buy didn't even have them out, the guy had to go find it in the stockroom and commented on how they only got 3 copies.

Gamestop had my preorder available to pick up but same story, not many copies came in and most were for preorder.

I don't know why they didn't make many of the initial run. I mean, its a popular game. I can see this being reprinted though. (Regular edition I mean)

It's wacky how Amazon alters their trade in value all the time, but I guess it's automatic maybe? Just earlier today, as in an hour or two ago, they were offering $30 for the 360 version.

I've only read one account of gameplay for the 360 version so far (on GameFaqs), and the guy said he's experiencing framerate issues and video skips when playing straight from the disc. He didn't install it to the HD, though.

Anyone pop theirs open yet?

So if I already own Compendium 1 & 2 theres no real loss at not getting the limited edition outside of just different artwork on the cover? I mean the box would be cool but would probably be stored away. Just wondering if thats all thats so special for this collectors set.

I had a couple of skips and frame rate issues on the X360 download version - and at least one complete freezes. It certainly didn't detract from the game overall though.

I just picked up the CE from GS and the single "Limited Edition" version of the game from Best Buy. Excuse the awful pictures, I had to take them really quick in low light with my phone before running back to work. I find it interesting that there are essentially three different covers for the game now...

I don't dig the limited edition one they are selling.

They barely got any copies in period. I'm not so sure they'll have the normal cover.

A number of people on GameFaqs are saying they're getting choppiness/freezing on the PS3 disc version, and someone else chimed in to say he never experienced that with the downloads.

Hmm, I think this is a wait and see for me.

Just went into my local Best buy and they had 16 of the "limited editions" on the shelves for the PS3 alone. Didn't see a single 360 copy though. More were at the gaming counters.

This'll probably see a sale soon, but I picked it up at MSRP since everybody keeps saying it's great.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Saw your post at the other place. Wanted to say "Could you please post pictures of the Best Buy poster?" but since I only lurk over there, I figure to post this here. 8-)

So lucky to grab one at a local gamestop for the XBOX 360. Was REALLY happy! Then I got home and noticed the upper right corner of the slip cover is crushed. It has about 7-8 creases all along the upper right side =(. Really dissapointing considering its a collectors item.

So I have this pre-ordered for 360 at gamestop, but I don't think I really want it. Do you guys think I should not pick it up, or should I pick it up and resell?


I said it much earlier in the thread but it probably bears repeating: the size & weight of this thing is going to Fuck you on shipping costs... unless the demand drastically raises reselling value. I'm taking a guess here but I'm thinking it's going to cost $15-20+ to ship. Feelin' lucky... punk?

It might fit in the USPS flat rate box

I thought all 360 games had install to HDD?? Seems they could have added one or two lines of code to ensure the disc was in.

Picked up my 360 copy today. Glad I preordered it, I was the only one that did and the only copy that came in. Dude I normally deal with was jealous cause he missed the preorder window by a day, so was hoping I wouldn't come in and get it.

If you ship the book by itself then you can send it media mail.

You can't use media mail to ship video games unless you try to sneak it.

Which will kill the resale value.

Even if it fits in a flat rate box the price on those will cut into your profit,which it might not even fit.

So if I already own Compendium 1 & 2 theres no real loss at not getting the limited edition outside of just different artwork on the cover? I mean the box would be cool but would probably be stored away. Just wondering if thats all thats so special for this collectors set.



Same deal here. I already own the first compendium which is why I passed on this.

Id rather go out and buy the 2nd compendium.

All you get if you own the book already is a card board box with walking dead art.

I'm waiting for the vanilla disc version to hit $10 simple as that. If it doesn't hit that price I won't fret if I can't play it.


This collectors edition is good for people new to the walking dead like I said from the start. If your collecting the single comics like me for over a year now then there isn't much here for you.

CE box is awesome. For me that & the special cover for game & compendium was totally worth extra bucks!
Compendium by itself is a big bonus here. I am sure it would have still sold out if they priced it at $100

You realize you can buy the game for $30 New and the 1st compendium for $35? You can even get it cheaper if you wait for sales or price drops.

You would spend another $35 bucks to have a pretty box?

I agree that it would have sold out at $100. They are routinely selling for at least $100 on eBay, and lots of them going for $150+.
