Not sure if it will be rare or not. GameStop seems to be the only one that has it.

I've read reviews that there are many hiccups in gameplay on consoles but the pc is the preferred system(in terms of gameplay)

Yes the one review out there says there are small issue with consoles but nothing that takes a thing away from the game.

Way too much.
I imagine most of the extra $ is for the statue, but I liked Tomb Raider's CE much better.

Thank you for beating me to the punch. Gotta love how people blow things out of proportion online. lol

Its not going to be rare.


Sold out on Walmart.com.
Sold out on Target.com.
Sold out on Amazon.com.
Sold out (2 editions) on Gamestop.com.

Etc.

Yup, just like every other CE that went into the bargain bin, right? :roll:

I think it's dumb to speculate on CE's myself. Most do end up on clearance (which is when I buy them). But failing to recognize that this is different, based on how quickly it sold out, shows you haven't been following it at all.

And I don't trust their own online store. It's run by Digital River, and they are inept when it comes to keeping track of stock.

gs was pushing this hard at a store i went to last night. They had a poorly hand written note on the front door stating they still had them and 2 of the creatures that work there tried pushing on me.
Ill take my chances like i did with gears 3 and wait it out. Id bite at 50. Im no fan of the season pass tricks either and thats whats really keeping me from buying the regular edition at full price right now.

This version will be "Limited", as it has been sold out at most major retailers for awhile now. It has also been going in and out of stock as well for the last few weeks. I'm guessing due to cancellations and extra stock added. I believe within a few weeks these will be gone.

This is also one of the only few special editions that will be released in several regions worldwide, so they are for sure trying to make sure all fans can get a copy. So I don't think prices will ever get super high for this, but it should maintain its current value over time, as it will be sold out, but considering so many other regions will have the exact same set, prices won't go to high.

Yup, getting paid for additional work sure seems like "trickery". I mean, they rushed the "regular" game out in what? 5-6 years? Rubbish. Surely that can't be worth $60.

Yeah, the work they are continuing to do now, creating even more content, is such a ripoff. How dare they give fans more of what they want? Those scoundrels.

It has been what 4 months, a lot of people cards probably had no credit, expired cc, inputted wrong info, or tried to make multiple orders, and they got cancelled happens all the time at GameStop.

The only one that is rare is the original Bioshock Collector's Edition as I believe it was "only" released for the 360 as it was a new IP with uncertain expectations of becoming a franchise. That CE still has the best Big Daddy due to the quality of the statue, but they really messed this item up as the drill hand could easily be broken off. Many of the boxes were carelessly shipped so they had some dents in the shipments. It was packed too tight in the box and the smallest drop could break that drill hand clean off. Thankfully, you can crazy glue it back and it looks perfect and I think they even offered a free replacement of the statue.

If I was to specualate, I think the low print run of the Bioshock 1/2 Return to Rapture will eventually be considered "rare" down the road. Fewer copies are appearing anywhere and I doubt Irrational Games will ever re-release this version. It had no hype or marketing behind it and was just released as more of a fan service to the diehards of this series to hold them over until Infinite was released and get some people onboard to the Bioshock universe for the first time. When I say rare, I think it will only go up in price from the original MSRP of $29.99.

ewwww all of that extra money for a statue (as nice as it looks). i would take the extra 70$ or so that you are spending and put it towards a bunch of games. while this version might be harder to find in the near future it true value is only if its sealed and im sure people didnt plan on spending 150$ just to leave the box on your shelf and not play this amazing game lol

Have you actually seen that Big Daddy statue in person? I have one, and while I like it for sentimental reasons, it is not high quality. Details are light, and the paint job is laughable. Only uses a few colors, and they are slopped on, with no attention to detail or the original character model. Looks like something made by an amateur. The action figures produced for the second game look miles better.

As for the drill hand, I heard that one of the shipping crates (out of 2 or 3 total) was dropped on the dock, due to a crane cable snapping. The shipper didn't tell 2K, so all those figures arrived at the shops broken.

Maybe I am being nostalgic then, because I prefer the rusty, gritty, worn colors of that Big Daddy over the more vibrant Neca figures. I actually own 2 as I got the replacement one as well as the printed art book. I should get the Neca one come to think of it? THANKS!

The statue is individually sealed I think, so you can just keep that sealed.
