yeah, that's what i kind of meant...majority drops in price...

I dont know about EU, but Japanese ones usually hold it's price and never cheaper (most of the time) because it is indeed limited, usually only enough for preorder and launch month, at least for MSRP

and MGSHD was great, the book was awesome.

Also....most "statues" that come in usa ones are horrible - poor quality. they are all deformed in some way or doesn't represent what it suppose to well..usually the face.

i go for $79.99 survival edition, that big box one will drop in price just like all others.

that walking dead was gamestop exclusive and was suppose to be very rare yet i see a lot of stores around me have them

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.


Uncharted 2 had a CE that was only given away and not sold at retail and those ended up selling on EBay for $2-3k. That's a reason why Uncharted 3 had a retail CE.

Definately getting the middle version (why didn't the middle version of Borderlands 2 come with a Steelbook, huh Gearbox?) to get the Steelbook and soundtrack.

For those wanting the GS-exclusive statue edition to drop in price, don't hold your breath. GS exclusive CE tend to hold their value and sell out before they can be clearanced, see ME 1, the Forza series, DoA 5, etc.

I'll be getting Survival Edition for sure, but the post-pandemic edition... why does it had to be GameStop exclusive only?! :(

This. Most USA statues don't use high-grade PVC like figures from Japan, and aren't quite as detailed imo. The only exception is the Batman statue from Arkham City CE, but that's made by Kotobukiya :/

Well, if you look at the picture most of those are Bishojyo games, which is biggest in Japan but the demand of those games are still low....when say success....it's like them selling 25,000 copies or something cause they are so damn cheap to make.

At least from the ones I can see, they are niche stuff. I should've been more clear but I mean more towards the major crowd....

Like the Rockman 1-6 plus x7 goes for like 500USD average, about 65000yen in Japan...even after 1-6 already having a digital re-release. Metal Gear L.E.s are decently priced and valued as well (i actually liked that shagohad)

the one that was terrible was the Xenosaga 2, that's a legend in its own sense wwwww

what's up with all the GameStop exclusive steelbook and now CE

i wish the steelbook was different is should been a red one not a black one and that would nice if GameStop has a exclusive pre-order steelbook (maybe red one)

i buying both when it comes out

I want that statue, but not enough to drop 80 bucks. Will definitely get the survival edition. Maybe as a birthday present. Hmm

Correct me if I am wrong but it seems the one with the statue does not come with the artbook.

survival edition looks pretty neat, the post pandemic edition is way overpriced, seems like gamestop decided to hoarde all post pandemic edition and decided to flip them

Probably picking up the SE edition from Gamestop just so I can burn the rest of the credits I have still and get the regular edition from Best Buy for price matching.

Just a heads up - Amazon is offering the Sights & Sound DLC as a preorder bonus. That took the wind out of the SE for me. While I'm sure Naughty Dog will do great with this one I'm not inclined to plunk down the cash for a collectors edition of a new series (or I'm just coming up for excuses to save the money).

Everyone is. They're just including it on the list so there's no confusion to whether you get it still.

Holy shit... I didn't see that coming. I'd think they'd produce some more if it sold out this fast.

Well they did say it was very exclusive but they throw those words around all the time so you never really know for sure. I had every intention of pre-ordering but I couldn't make it to GS and didn't want to pay in full online. So here's hoping I can do so tomorrow.

If you want this you better go order in store now. It will be cut off probably by tomorrow morning. I called and pre-orders are still open as of now. Maybe the talk of the statue being worth $200 was true. That's the only reason I see for them making it this limited.

Gamestop.com doesn't charge you on pre-orders. No pending charge either.

Are you sure? I checked Best Buy and Target and didn't see it listed when I posted. Gamestop has it along with the other Multiplayer advantage DLC...
