The LE that is selling for $15 does NOT have a Best Buy Exclusive sticker on it.
It's the LE that was available at all retailers at launch, it also does not have a slip cover on it, just a holographic game label

And the SKUs are different


lol. that's what the one i found looks like, but it had the BBY sticker and rang up as 50. i'm just trying to get a picture so i can call other stores tomorrow and describe it to them before i waste more time driving around the country trying to find it. i guess i could ask them to ring it up for me.

does the DLC on it even matter? does it add to the story? add achievements?


This is the one you DON'T want to buy, it rings up as $49.99.

I know what the one I don't want looks like; I don't know what the one I WANT looks like. Apparently they look nearly identical, just without the sticker. I doubt I'll be successful in explaining this to BBY, though, lol. I need to be in an area with a BBY so I guess I'll check it out for the hell of it.

Thanks to everyone who explained the covers.I went to one in the morning and all they had was the Best Buy one.Then after reading the posts I called a different Best Buy and explained the covers and situation to her and she said she would check and she said they had one left of the regular LE and she would hold it.I then went over and she was right and I got it for $14.99.

Just to recap the blatant slap in the face to real gamers who actually want to play the games. Looking at the numbers, the person prob bought every copy they had left in the store. The auction was for 56 but it seems they went back to the store or hit another location for another 10 games.

unfortunately, we are on "cheapass" gamer. Alot of ppl still think it would drop lower than $15, before bestbuy is sold out. This just confirmed my fear http://www.ebay.com/...=item4ac17f1316.


:shock:


is this a joke ? this must be a phycho slick dealer who did that smh. before taxes he spent 840$ on all of that. hes prob not going to profit as much as hes hoping he will and thats before the ebay fees


Adding this to my watch list so I can see the outcome. 66 x 15 = $990.
The tax, fees and shipping may take some fees from him, but I'm sure he earned some nice reward points as well.

66 games for $999.00

66 is the total games for this lot, not 56! Thank you."

I debated on getting on the PS3 or 360, but since I own the 1st on the 360 I went with that. I tried to do instore pickup, but it denied me to ship to store but offered free ship to the house.

Only reason I purchased the game is I had a rewards card expiring and $10 was my pricepoint.

Exclusive?

Today's my lucky day, ladies!

I went to the local BB where I got my vanilla copy to pick up Bulletstorm and I decided to take Darksiders II (which has been unopened at this point) in case they had a limited edition (non-BB). And they had one left for Xbox! I was able to simply exchange my vanilla copy for the LE copy. No strings attached.

I doubt he will make his money back on these . . . unless they're stolen to begin with, in which case he'll certainly do fine. But 66*15 = 990, add taxes, listing fees, and PayPal fees, and he'll need to clear a fair amount to make a profit.

Just to reiterate for everyone still confused...

The ones that ARE $14.99
Posted ImagePosted Image <-and yes, this is the picture from the other sku listing, lmao
SKU: 6410941
UPC: 7-52919-55382-4
http://www.bestbuy.c...rs II&lp=2&cp=1

The one that is NOT $14.99
Posted Image
SKU: 3905186
UPC: 7-52919-55485-2
http://www.bestbuy.c...54852&lp=1&cp=1
Note: This has a holographic slipcover, whereas the non-best buy stickered one does not


Its pretty stupid, because they should both be $14.99, its just whoever was a moron put them in the bestbuy.com systems are the best buy stickered one being Limited Edition, and the standard having no mention that it also included the Limited Edition...because the Limited Edition is NOT a Limited Edition in the sense most people understand, but rather just the early copies of the game.

I'm pretty sure that in best buys pos, they are listed as standard and best buy exclusive at least... I'm pretty pissed that after bringing up all 3 copies and explaining it, hoping to get the best buy stamped one; they gave me bs about "not being able to do price matches on games". Location I went to was right next door to their corporate offices...kinda feel like going in there and just letting them know they suck at inventory and managing sales and price drops...

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Submitted my order online and hope to get some version of the limited edition. But even if I don't, it was worth ordering online to save the time & gas. I read the dlc dungeon that comes in the LE is just ok and the BB exclusive dlc is just an armor set

That's always the most important thing I consider when I buy a game, how long it spins while I'm playing.

The BB "exclusive" DLC can be downloaded on the XBL Marketplace. LOL.

thats a really good reason do you want your console really loud for hundreds of hours (for like call of duty or gta) making the disc spinning sound or a couple minutes

Lol...when did this turn into the first world problems thread? "I can afford a $300 game console and $60 games and apparently have hundreds of hours of free time to play call of duty and gta, but man, that somewhat audible disc reading noise is intolerable! I won't stand for it!"
