Shipping and handling. $10. And there's no way that thing actually costs $10 to ship, especially with all of those processed in bulk.

What's S&H? I've already preordered Dev Team, but yeah something weird is going on lol

I would say it is more likely to cost $10 to ship this then the $20 it cost to have the < 3lb DJ Max CE shipped from Pentavision.


And let's assume this weighs more then 3lbs. Which carrier would EA use to have it shipped for less then $10?

Again, they are guaranteed to ship about 5,000 in bulk. And let's not be coy ... $100 is inflated for what it is anyhow. But hey, I want it ... I'll get it ... I just feel like they're being petty about $10 S&H ... but that's EA's MO.

But Im wondering how many of the "5000" they have left. The just announced it publicly, if they had like 1000 left, then what's the point.

They just announced the edition publicly, I think NOW it's gonna run out fast.


Yeah just googled it and saw a video for it. It looks pretty sweet. These will definitely be going fast now.

Doesn't Orgin still ship UPS, I think every order I've had on there has always shipped UPS.

I just think it's ironic that a lot of people that say they didn't want this once it sells out will want to have one.

Isaac's face ala Halo 3 Legendary would've been cool as well

It's not being petty, it's called margin.

How much do you think 8lbs costs to ship? $2?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

8lb, Dev Team Edition....

Hmmm... 100/8 = $12.50 per pound.

So you could 8lb of Roast Beef here in NJ for that price....

Worth it.....?

Looks like the non-game listing is <10 now, so last call for that unless they split some of the bundles game ones off.

hmmm.. it looks like they've simply put a order limit of 5 on the add-on. It's hard to tell how many are left.

Considering the speed they were selling, and how many they had left when I last looked, I'd say they probably had around half left when they announced it publicly. However, videos have existed for this for like two days now, so in what way has this now been made aware to the public, that hasn't been done before? It was on ign like two or three days ago, as well. Anyway, I'm sticking to what I said. If these aren't sold out in the next three days, I'm canceling.

I ordered but I would have had rather the helmet of Clarke or a full sized figure, instead of some artbook I'm just gonna see once. Something like the Skyrim CE wouldve been nice. Just two extra goodies, but very high quality

Just saying but that video has been out since the first day this was available. It's not some sort of new marketing push.

I wish they had made an incentive to buy a version with the game.

Should have done $100 for the add-on and $140 or $150 for the Dev-Team Edition + Game.

What makes this epic? For $100? postcards? Waterbottle? a Box? a empty paper notepad? All done in a style that to anyone at 1st glance things Bioshock or some other world theme? I just don't see any epicness of this package. Oh maybe its the plastic Marker made in China or that waffer thin artbook?

A better package would be:

$90 for game+items below:

Steelbook
Artbook (physical)
Full Soundtrack (physical)
Blu-Ray Making Of Disc/History of Dead Space Series (physical)
Blu-Ray Dead Space movies (physical+digital)
DLC items

So Treehouse makes 0 dollars in profit? That makes sense.

Come on man, be realistic.

Yep. My authorization just became a posted charge today. In fairness, they did warn people about this right on the website.
