same just got home from work wanting get it but scalpers wanting $50 ..... right

If people are buying at that price there is no issue. All they can do it ask people to pay a certain price. No one is twisting any arms to force a purchase.

If you guys can wait I'm pretty sure there will be quite a few CAGs who will sell their guide pretty cheap.

And technically, retail on the guide is $40 - that's what you'd pay at Gamestop or Best Buy, Target, etc. So asking $50 for it isn't really unreasonable... it's only that they are asking that on Amazon, who sells it cheaper (if in stock).

What I find hilarious are the people selling used copies on amazon for $122-$140. lolz

Exactly. It went against every bone in my body but I actually ended up getting it at GS when I picked up the game on launch day. With the GS discount it was ~$35 when I knew I could get it for less. But I'd have to wait and I was going right home to play it. I wanted it for the familiar charts and items lists right then and there so I "overpaid."

Had a page refresher refresh every 20 seconds for a few minutes and finally just got a copy ordered when it became available!

What is this "play" you speak of? I thought these were nothing but decorative boxes to line my shelves with.

It's something I used to do a long time ago...then I found cag.

I got sick of missing out every time it restocked. I just ordered it from Barnes & Noble for $23.52.

It is $3.99 for shipping unless you spend a total of $25 before tax (marketplace purchases do not count) or are BN member. Either way, it is better than paying full price.

Shows available for pickup at my local B&N store at full retail price $40. Called them and it appears they don't price match their own website.

Just a heads up. Not that it's a huge deal for me, but it might be for some people. Got my guide from B&N.com and it was dented on the front/back covers. Like right at the corners of the book covers and the spine where the cover's meet. Nothing major, but for some people who need pristine condition, keep it in mind. Ships in a cardboard sleeve type thing but it's pretty crappy for keeping books 100% safe.

You can skip what I said earlier about BN if you want your guide any time soon. I just got my shipping confirmation. It says it will not ship until 2/18. I have yet to get the game so I can wait. Maybe the game will go on sale between now and then.

Did you place your order when it said 'ships within 24 hours'?

I ordered the guide from B&N on the 24th and got it today (4 days, would have been yesterday if it wasn't Sunday). So I had no problems with them.

I swore I did but I guess not. But again, it really doesn't matter to me since I don't have the game yet. I am just glad I got it at a halfway decent price.

Just seems most retailers are having trouble keeping this and the actual game in stock. Currently Amazon has the game at a 1-3 week ship estimate. Still so fresh and new.

Amazon just shipped my order. Originally, it was said to be out of stock until 2/1, so they must have gotten their supply a few days early. Now I'll have it on 1/31.

Hmm.. so whats going on with Amazon. Sounds like a lot of you didn't get your copy? I ordered mine a bit late: on the 20th but it didn't mention anything about shipping delays. I still have not recieved a shipping update or anything. Would it be better to just buy one at BBY or Gamestop? Are we getting it any time soon? I planned on playing it once i got my Wizard edition but wanted the guide for the code in it

Same still just says estimated date is February 7/8th. I can't believe I am hyped for a game that has already been released :D
