I went by my local Gamestop tonight and noticed that they finally marked the Gears of War 3 Epic Edition (new) down to $49.99. It's also available via online reservation for in-store pickup:

http://www.gamestop....c-edition/90535

With Gears of War Judgment just a month away I'm surprised this hasn't been converted to used yet in the system. I'm hoping it does soon since a used standard copy of Gears 3 is $15. This one has been a bit stubborn from converting.

Now playing:

EDIT: Good deal since it comes with the statue. It looks like the ones on ebay were removing the statue without saying it.

Not even a good deal. Several cheaper on ebay w/ ship factored in.


Not sure what you saw but the cheapest complete new, sealed version under eBay is $85. Then again, I used the official category listing of the EE to check so I suppose you could still be right but the ones at Gamestop haven't been converted to used yet, so these should still be brand new, sealed at your store.

Still have stock at the Gamestop near my house and the 2 Gamestops near my work. Might decide to bite on this but might wait for it to drop a little lower.

i think he confused this with limited edition. this one, epic edition, includes a huge PVC statue.

I've had my eye on this lately, but the game itself is already pretty cheap and I own it >.<

I believe this is the cheapest it has been right? I vaguely recall a TRU sale for the same price.

The Rockaway, NJ store has two at $40. I remember seeing it for $80 or so a couple of months ago. Not sure if it's just the Rockaway location.

Fry's had the cheapest price at $30 about a month ago. Whenever it gets converted to used, it should be $15 but not sure whether that's going to happen soon or not with GoW: Judgment a month away.

haha, I was just talking to an employee about this still being $120 just the other day! Seems like a decent deal if you can get one in pristine condition from the back rooms.

If any survive to get converted to used, that would be a spectacular deal!

Do you want to sell or own it?(just remember fees and shipping that SOB) I wouldnt spend 50$ (practically a new game) on something I didn't like.

I was hoping for 20 like MP3

I collect games so just to own it; didn't this originally retail over $100? $50 seems like a good price plus I work at GameStop so I would get 15% off. To buy or not to buy :lol:

what are the chances of them being unopened? i loath going to gs unless im getting something thats worth it. this would look nice next to all my other big box editions but i dont want to drive all over trying to find a sealed one.
im certainly not going to call them and those creatures all worked up. plus they would probably just flat out lie to me.

Bought this last summer at BB for $50 (around the same time Skyrim CEs were also $50). It's a really, really nice collection if you are a fan of the series. As for the statue, if you display it make sure you don't place it on a side viewing angle because it looks like Marcus is taking a dump.

Seriously.... Look at the first image on this page: (I don't know why I can't post an image...)

So Plaza 35 in Wall NJ has one but it may have water damage. The manager was extremely nice on the phone so I might as well take a look. The sad part is was that it was a SEALED copy!

Im fan fan of the series. I have fallout nv ce, tron ce, batman ac ce, batman dark knight movie ce batpod, and skyrim ce. (that skyrim ce is nice and so big)

I want this, but kinda hope it drops to $30. With all my ce, man this would take up so much space. To bit or not to bit?

The Marcus statue takes up less overall space than Alduin, and of all the ones listed I think it has the overall best extras. The packaging is really nice, the medal and extra backstory content and art book are all really nice. Well worth $50 IMO (which was the price point I jumped in on).

Well I wish I worked at GS. It's a good value, but the room its going to take up is substantial; and if you open it you'll have a giant statue of a main character from a game you don't like staring at you. So again, to buy or not to buy.

I'm still holding out for a GOTY edition for all the DLC in one solution. Good to know, just in case I decide to bite anyways.
