You people are hilarious with your stale jokes :rofl:


It's not a joke. They actually do that crap.

That said, gs is the only place that has the survival dlc that's found in the post-pandemic edition available to those who preorder.

I am really looking forward to this game, but I'm not sure it warrants me buying the collector's edition..


I'm in the same boat, but it will be a day 1 purchase regardless

The only copy of a brand new release day game that was ever opened by gamestop was Deus Ex and that was the whole "take out the onlive voucher" debacle. They have never opened a brand new release day shipped game and "played it".

If you're talking about Gamestop.com, you're correct. If you're talking about individual stores, that's not correct at all.

They may not have played it, but my preordered release day Demon's Souls Deluxe Edition was opened with the slipcover ripped. They were 'generous' to give me a 10% discount when I asked, though.

Thank god Amazon finally listed the SE on their site. I can finally cancel my GS order. For all I know they will send me an open already played copy of it and claim it is new.

I got burned with so many special editions in the past few years, I am going to wait for a price drop.

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:wiiu: The Wonderful 101
:3ds: Shin Megami Tensei IV

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

$80 for a statue at GameStop ahaha

What exactly is so funny? I collect statues (anime, video game), and $80 is a fairly average price for something of that quality. For people who just want the game, I understand why this wouldn't be a great buy. But for people into collectibles that 's a pretty good price.

Besides art book all you get is official soundtrack and psn avatars? Not even in game dlc?

And paying 100 for edition with statue is highway robbery. I'd rather own 3 vanilla games than one CE

With the survival you get the preorder DLC as well as a steelbook case. In terms of paying for the statue, that is up to the buyer. You might see it as highway robbery while another person could love it. People in Japan pay way higher prices for a statue / figure and some people have crazy collections. Lets not even talk about how they price their video games, blu-rays, or anime.

I think if a person has extra disposable income then they can use it on whatever they like.

80 to 100 for a good quality statue is either the going price or a good deal in some cases. I've picked up a few from amazon and imported, so yeah. But again, its not for everyone, just like expensive CEs ;)

now the waiting game begins, to see how high the post-pandemic edition will actually be worth

I feel like the higher priced CEs are a harder sell on eBay. For one they already priced at a high premium; how much more is a buyer willing to shell out above that $160? I sold my Black Ops II Care Package for $225 w/ free shipping. That isn't much of a profit. The CEs that typically sell high are the ones priced at or around $100. Look at DOA5, MGS HD LE, Diablo III CE, Ni No Kuni CE, etc. The ones priced more reasonably tend to sell for 100% of the price and above.

I really think it will sell to at least double the price if they improve their marketing campaign for the game. Then regarding the collectors edition price well that is just luck I remember a few care packages going for 300 dlls. Just look at the dead space 3 Dev kit add on is going for 250.00 and that is just a box with extras

I want to see the quality of the statue up close. Unboxing video or whatever. We all know this game is going to OWN! (sorry I don't normally use that word)

In case anyone is wondering, Project Triforce has confirmed that they will not be selling the statue separately. There was some speculation that they might since The Last of Us is listed as "Coming Soon" on their website, suggesting they are potentially working on other items. So it looks like the Post-Pandemic Edition is the only way to get this particular statue.

Yup. the Post Pandemic edition is GS exclusive. The Survival Edition is for every retailer.
