I may bite on the SE if Amazon gets it. I dont know who would spend $80 for a statue.

Wow, Uncharted 3 gets a steelbook and now Last of Us? Naughty Dog knows what we want from their collector's editions! I definitely want the survival edition for the steelbook and art book. Don't care about the multiplayer dlc. Seems odd that the game even has multiplayer.

The survival edition comes out to $59.99 from best buy for gamer unlocked members after the $20 reward certificate so I'll be getting it there.

the vanilla from best buy with the $20 credit and potential future price adjust seems the best route.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you are paying $80 for the statue.

I love big boxy editions cause they drop in price due to space limitations.

pretty much spot on hopefully it is not super limited. might shell out the extra 20 though for the regular SE

Try $100. That edition doesn't even sport the art book, but everything else you'd get for the $80 edition.

Of course the overpriced version is from Gamestop. That's worth $100 at most.

The regular edition with $20 BB Reward Zone and price match is the way to go. If I want a statue maybe I will pick one up on ebay later. The art book looks really nice but I assume that edition will not be on sale within 60 days of launch.

Man, why doesn't the one with the statue come with the artbook as well? If it did I'd buy it.

If you get the collector edition are you able to price match if the regular game goes on sale? Like if it goes on sale for 40 than you get 20 bucks back or no?

Nope. The same SKU has to be on sale to get a PM at Best Buy.

$20 more for the Survival Edition? I will get it. Now the Gamestop overpriced crap can kiss my ass. I am running out of room for statues unless I get rid of some.

Wat? You mean just the $160 statue but no artbook version, or both?

Survival Edition is good. Heck I would pay $10 more for almost any game if it came with just a steelbook so the artbook is just a bonus for $10 more.


Naughty Dog must feel pretty good about this game though to have all these CEs. Uncharted was a new IP and did not have any CEs as far as I remember.

I'd prob. get the SE condition also. But just an off-topic question, what do you guys do with the original game artwork (and possibly game case, but assume that will be reused for other games) when games have the option to come with a steelbook version? I've always wonder that...

Only $20 more than the standard edition for a good CE. Definitely buying it.

Dunno anyone that would seriously buy the more expensive one, especially since you pay $80 more for a mini statue. Have a feeling there won't be too many produced though, so it may end up rare, and resellers might jump on the opportunity to grab one.

Definitely buying it - figure Amazon would sell the book for 26.xx. Too bad Best Buy doesn't seem to count the CE's towards their 20 dollar reward zone thing.

I really don't like the trend of 2 different special editions where the higher priced one is missing something from the lower priced one.

Pretty sure they do.

I bought the Hardened edition of Black Ops 2 and I got the cert.

Praying this ends up like Max Payne 3 CE!! I would HAVE to buy one for $20, but I'd pay $60 for this easy.

Following that blog link, they claim the statue is a $200 value (also of note, the art book will be sold separately for $40). Initially I was going to say that being a mild comic book collector, I've seen decent quality statues like these retail close to a $100 but I never would have thought $200. At that estimation, these things better be solid, and individually handpainted. (Probably a 'no' to both of those, however.)

Couldn't resist the post-pandemic edition. Steep but i've been looking forward to this game for so long and that statue looks to be amazing. I hope these are indeed limited unlike every other collector's edition out there:)

USA released Limited Edition software never holds its price, it just goes down because it's so bloated in the market...quality also sucks...both infamous and nathan drake statues were horrible quality for it's price. I mean...the freaking nendoroid puchi is better quality, by alot, and they are way cheaper.

The guy on Sony claims it's 200 dollars statue..yeah, selling at a lost...lol.

Not all NA CEs fall in price. Look at the MGS HD Limited Edition. It's been at twice the MSRP in the 3rd party market since its launch.

Or even Mass Effect 2 CE.

Although MOST NA CEs fall very quickly in price, there are the rare few that don't.
