Why would we?

The eBay auctions are still selling for over $100, and even if they drop the price will go back up once it's OOS at GS once again.

The only way that would change is if they majorly overproduced the set afterall and there ends up being a ton of them on the market. I don't expect that, but I certainly wouldn't feel stupid about it. If it's limited to any sort of small number, it'll be a $100 seller for quite some time, especially once the current GS stock is depleted.



You realize you're talking about scapler prices. Which is whatever someone is willing to pay for something.

I'm talking about retail MSRP.

eBAY is a horrible example to use. People on ebay will pay $9,000 dollars to play a COD game a few days before street date,do those imbeciles represent a whole?

My statment is based on the game in general and how the disc version is broke on release. The game is almost unplayable for $70 dollars why would you want to pay $30 more for a game that still needs to be patched?

I can understand hardcore collectors might but you're talking two different kinds of groups one that wants to collect and one that just wants to play the game and have the bonus swag.

needler420, I have no clue what your point is.

I originally said that it would have sold out at $100 from GS and it would have. If people who were late to the party, only recently discovered it, or people who don't realize it's back at GS are paying well over $100 for it on the aftermarket, of course it would have sold out for less than what they're willing to pay now. The Walking Dead fans alone would have scooped them up, especially since it was said this is likely limited. It sold out before at a lower price, and it's still selling now even on the aftermarket and at double the price.

People would pay more because of the property and the possible limited numbers. And like I said, if it turns out that it wasn't limited and GS floods the market with them, everything I have said is pointless. I'm going on what we know now.

I'm disappointed that, even with the delays it still has major bugs. I don't understand why, for the PS3 version at least, they didn't just make it one of those downloadable games on a disc, where you just install the whole package onto the hard drive and insert the disc to verify ownership.

You remind me of all the Wii U flippers and their failed hypothesis.

They see some jackarse on ebay making a profit so they buy a few to flip and low and behold the system is back in stock online and locally and now someone else looks like the jackarse having to return multiple systems.

I did the same thing with Wii and had friends do it with PS3 so I can't say I'm innocent.

Modern gen gaming and western developers love releasing broken games. Seriously they love it. They care more about deadlines then if something is broken.

needler: why are you still trying to rage against someone just pointing out that even 30 bucks more would have still sold the initial run? You seem to be acting like you have some serious vendetta against Downhome for pointing this out.

Probably based on the fact I'm pointing out why it wouldn't have sold for $30 more at MSRP.

If this game was $30 more msrp after hearing about the needed patch, it would be much like the MGSR CE and probably have a thread rated at one star instead of two and get bashed even more.

Apparently they've already released a patch to fix the problem with advancing chapters, but they don't know why people are having the awful stuttering/freezing issues.

I decided to order one of the CE's now that I finally got GS free shipping to work. I couldn't decide which console because both are apparently buggy, waiting for patches. So I chose PS3 because I don't want an eco case.

They're back in stock? They claimed right on the page that this was a pre-order only item. They just flat out lied? I think this is my last pre-order with Gamestop. What a shitty company. I'll either try to sell my collector's edition on eBay before prices drop, or return it to Gamstop. This is no longer a "collector's edition" in my mind. Not with excess copies floating around and no one wanting them. If only these scumbags stuck to what they claimed, this would have been a decent collector's edition, but they just scammed everyone. Why couldn't Amazon get this? They wouldn't have ripped everyone off like this...

Anything that went back on sale today is either A) Cancelled orders B) Orders that didn't go through due to payment problems C) Reserve stock D) Returns


If that were the case, they wouldn't still be on sale. What, did five thousand people cancel? There's clearly no demand anymore, aside from on eBay, where all the idiots go. I hope one of those idiots buys my copy, because I sure as hell don't want it anymore. I'll never pre-order from Gamestop again, and I sure as hell won't support this developer again.

This is the first "collector's edition" I've ever ordered from Gamestop, and I only did so because it was exclusive, and due to the fact that they claimed it was "Extremely Limited Pre-Order ONLY." That second part they completely removed from the page. Trust me, if it hadn't been for that second part, I wouldn't have ordered. All my pre-ordered go to Amazon. The first time I put my trust in Gamestop, and I get ripped off, go figure...

I'll just go back to using them for cheap bulk used game orders, because buying individually on eBay and whatnot costs too much, and gohastings is absolutely terrible for used games and whatnot ($35 dollars shipping for two small $2 PS3 accessories LOL!!!).

Anyway, I hope I'm wrong, but I'm sure I'm not. If it's still in stock tomorrow, I'll try and dig myself out of this hole by passing my copying onto someone on eBay at a slightly inflated price, to cover the $70, and shipping.

GameStop didn't just decide to say "extremely limited, preorders only". Telltale had that on their site. I assume what GS has available is denied credit cards and late cancelled orders.

People said the same shit about all three Portal guns when Amazon randomly would have 15 or 20 in stock again after the initial sellout. This type of thing happens. It's ok.

Exactly, it was never listed as "preorder only". Someone misread either a line that telltale said, or someone second hand said it. Nothing preorder wise from gamestop has ever just been flat out advertised as "preorder only" when it comes to the actual retail game, only DLC and promo items are listed as that.

Apparently both console versions have nasty issues that need patching.

Unfortunately that means I would recommend the PS3 version due to its speedy and cheap patch approval process whereas Microsoft takes forever to release expensive patches.

I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true. Gamestop had "Extremely Limited Pre-Order ONLY" posted on their page, exactly as I have it written. They removed it, but it's still in google history.

That's why I'm pissed off. They just removed it from the page, as if it never happened. They just flat out lied when they put it there, to entice people to buy. That claim of pre-orders only is what pushed me to make the purchase. That's the kind of bullshit some scammer on eBay pulls, I wouldn't expect it from a large company like Gamestop.

You realize the thread rating is at two stars. How many pages a thread is means nothing. Those amazon gold box deal threads go for dozens of pages and it's all posts about people bashing it.

Look at the MGSR CE it got bashed in till a one star rating. It's dozens of pages as well but it's all posts about how the bonus items don't justify the price.

Jesus christ, it's ONE DAY after launch. Maybe the reason it doesn't say "preorder only" anymore is because you can't preorder it since it has been released. derpderp
