I think Kmart has it for $44.99 (standard edition) this week but Amazon may be a better bet for most who don't like wandering into what is now the Kmart abyss

Amazon is showing less than 500 left so I would doubt it.

I really want the CE but I'm going to hold out until it drops to at least $49.99, I honestly think that might happen at some point. This is an amazing game BTW, thanks for the post GBA.

Tomb Raider is the only CE in the past few months that I have seen sitting at shelves at Best Buy and in the past year the only ones I can think of that had left over units post release day are Black Ops II Hardened, AC 3 Limited and then Tomb Raider.

I would pick this up at $60.

Amazon is not the only retailer that has these still. They're also available at BB, GS, and newegg. I really think it has a chance at going lower at one of those places.

BB will almost certainly clearance theirs at some point, based on past form. 64.99 has been their drop price for CEs lately (Max Payne 3 and Assassins Creed 3), and I'd be happy with that. Hard to say what GS will do, as they had no price drops on AC3, instead converting them straight to used so maybe that's their new way of doing things.
BB is still rocking a $99 price point on the Aliens Colonial Marines CE though, whereas GS has it for 69.99. So who knows which one will crack first on Tomb Raider.

I bought it/beat it/sold it. Because I'm also waiting for the CE to hit a good price so I can rebuy it

The CE s a steal at that price. the Lara play arts kai figure retails at around $60 by itself, its like getting the game,art book, and patches for $15.

Not really, seeing as mostly everyone wouldn't pay $60 for the figure even though that's what it retails for. Still a good deal though for an amazing game + extras.

For those few that do its a steal since play arts figure typically retail in the $50-$75 range. Also the fact that it comes with the figure intrinsically makes this a better deal over all. It's the collective value of the whole that makes it an awesome deal. If everything was purchase piecemeal it would cost well over $130.

I'm expecting this to drop further for sure. The publisher has stated that this didn't sell in the numbers they wanted(although it has sold great), so I'm guessing every retailer that sells this has TONS. This game has also been released within the busiest 2 months of gaming in years, so I know many passed on this game, so there has to be large overstock everywhere.

It's only a matter of time before someone drops this even further. If CE like these aren't pre-ordered or sold within the first month, most consumers are waiting for a better deal(that almost always comes). This deal isn't bad, but it can be better. I'm waiting for at least 59 or under.

Anyone remember how much the CE was during the gold box day? It was the same day Tomb Raider was $42 all day.

This also comes with the art book over places like GameStop/bestbuy At least I bought this last week and it still had it.

Yeah amazon is a better bet. Picked one up as just 500 left


I'm sure they will get more in. Ive seen it under 500 for the last few weeks and they keep getting more

I've sold many of the figurines for $60-$70. With the collectors price dropping it might get flooded and lower the price but people were definitely paying that much for the figurine before.

There's only one copy left at my Bestbuy. I really want to PM and use a $10 RZ but it might drop even more. Only a couple weeks to PM after buying

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

If there's only one copy left you might want to take your chances.

I got this thing after flipping 2 copies of Pokemon Soul silver I got for $5 ($10>$40) and decided I might as well get it at gamestop.

Word of advice; only really worth it if you really like figures. Otherwise it's just a soundtrack, a map/poster and a tiny lithograph (there's also a code there but let's be real, you'll all try it out then put it away forever).

If you bought it at BBY when it released, no, since you can only PM BBY post-purchase now.

If you want to buy it today, yes.

Steelbook was Target.exclusive

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

If you preordered using their website before their new price-match policy went into effect in March, yes. In my case, the order showed up as being placed on February 16th, and since I was covered by the previous price match policy, and it was within 60 days, I was able to have them adjust my price to Amazon's $75.99.
