Ordered the Best Buy exclusive steelbook for Store Pickup, and it came with the game.  So $10 off with steelbook and some of the pre-order bonuses - it has the Deathstroke DLC, but I don't see the Robin/Tim Drake skin.

 

PS3 - http://www.bestbuy.c...0&skuId=1602415

 

360 - http://www.bestbuy.c...5&skuId=1602391

 

YMMV since I don't know if every Best Buy will give the game with the steelbook, but figure if it doesn't, you could just return it...

If you want the steelbook, you should hurry, as the last time there was a "Gift with Pre-order" thing (GTA V Lithograph), I bought it and my order came without it.

 

Luckily, CS came through and gave me a $30 GC, but if you actually wanted this, order.

So you ordered just the steelbook today online and went in for store pickup and got the game, steelbook, and preorder bonus code?

This seems pretty YMMV. I wouldnt be surprised if they just gave you the steelbook by itself

 

I remember when I got Prototype 2 on sale earlier this year I tried to get them to PM me the Steelbook for free, and they kept trying to charge me the 50$ for it. (Eventually relented after a while)

Yes - I received the steelbook and the game - they were stickered together.  The Deathstroke pre-order bonus is a sticker on the normal game case.

Exact same here.

 

I bought Madden 25 & GTA V and haven't really played either of them and I'm picking up WWE 2k14 on Tuesday.

Mine had a giant sticker on my steelbook. I would of liked the name on list instead of trying not to damage my case.

I ordered hoping I would get the game. But no, just the case. I'll be returning it. Cool case, but terribly cheap feel to it. The hinges were loose too.

You two should get help.

 

Regarding this: I guess you guy do a store pick up, and if it doesn't include the game, then just let them cancel the pick up on the spot. Can I tell if it comes with the game or not on the spot without opening it?

Wasn't this a confirmed Metalpak? That does matter to some people

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?"

steelbook comes separately with the game. kinda of the ni no kuni gamestop steelbook preorder. you buy the game, and the employee give you the steelbook. that is how it worked, when i picked up my steelbook and game. They checked my receipt to see if i preordered batman arkham origins, before giving me it. I am not sure how it worked for other people at their local bestbuy store.

there is a good chance they might have extra steelbooks, you can try buying the game, and ask the store employee if they have extra steelbooks they can give you. my store got extras, and i saw someone give the steelbook to another customer who asked for it, even thought he did not preordered the game. IT was like 12 + steelbooks.

The OP's store picked the order incorrectly. He should have got just the collectible case which is empty. Maybe the way description prints in store they got confused.

Can anyone post a picture or confirm if this is a Steelbook or Metalpak? and, is the PS3 version G2 sized?

 

Thanks! (sorry, I'm seeing conflicting info from other sites.)
