The Gamestop in Wall on Route 35 has a few Epic Editions.

They actually had more editions than the water damaged one!
Got a mint interior one with a little wear on the box!

Nicest Gamestop employees there. Guy was really nice.

Picked up mine at a Gamestop I've never been too. Since it was opened already I told the manager I should get an additional discount as a joke and he did! Took off another 10% and was a pretty nice dude.

I have never seen them in the store, do they keep all CEs in the back or something?

Generally they do. I usually don't get CEs from Gamestop but I remember the Tekken Hybrid CE was locked away in a cabinet(it was thin) and the Ninja Gaiden 3 CE was locked away in the back(it was a sizable box). Due to size this will be locked away in the back and require asking an employee to go get it.

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!


Remember, in the smaller stores, when their backrooms are too crowded, they sometimes store larger items inside the employee restroom in the back. So guess where that water damage likely came from. Just something to keep in mind!!

For anyone who already owns a copy of the game, it trades in for $5 ($8 for PUR pro members)

bringing the price down to $42.49/41.99 ;) made it easier for me to bite on. lol

Hmmmm, I do own the Limited Edition copy, but I'm tempted to bite just for the Marcus Statue. Decisions.....

Got one, box was pristine and sealed. I don't even have a 360, yet.
Ever since I joined CAG I CANNOT stop collecting statues I don't know why.

Speaking of the Tekken CE, I've seen one in my store. Has that been converted to used?

I don't believe so. I jumped on it when it dropped to $20 for a new copy. I think it's back up to $30 right now.

You are right, they were in the back!

Was about to do that then I realized that I bought mine from a garage sale for 3 dollars 2 weeks or so after release. Has a nasty scratch but with an install from my friends disc it worked great for me. The scratch is gnarly enough that it won't fly.

I really do want this. Really, really want this. But I've missed the CE for every Gears so far, so much to my dismay, I should probably wait to scoop them all up on ebay sometime.

... hopefully without dickheads yanking the statues out.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Epic. (Yeah I know I didn't clip the gun right, I am adjusting it...slowly as to not break the gun. After that it will go up in the glass cabinet, which I have to make a room for it now)

For once the box wasn't beat to hell.

Just a dent on the edge and a little surface wear.

I got mine at my local store. Its sealed so if ever something happens within the next month, ill try and do a return and rebuy. Im a regular at that store so i dont think it would be a problem right? I mean i do have the right to return and get refunded within 30 days if a purchase is still sealed right?

Picked up the one my local GS had on the shelf for a long time (maybe since the game came out). Opened and displayed the statue and redeemed the codes. :)

Yeah they won't give you crap as long as it's sealed.

That's a great idea actually. Since GoW: Judgment comes out in less than 30 days there's a chance the GoW 3: EE gets converted to used which would make it cost $15 (assuming the used price holds at the time of conversion). On the other hand, GoW: J doesn't have a CE so who knows how long it'll take for the conversion to occur.

Now playing:

:ps4: Mortal Kombat X, The Last of Us: Remastered, Bloodborne (I commend you if you can beat this)

:xb1: Ori and the Blind Forest

Why would they care if you are immediately buying it back?
I never done this before, just wondering.

And those are slowly disappearing at the $50 price it seems. Don't know if it will make it to the conversion.

Somebody with more inside GS knowledge can correct me here but the way it's been explained to me is that since they don't do any PM's at all they require returns/rebuys to be for sealed products. An opened product wouldn't be eligible for a return despite your intention to rebuy. The stores I've done this at have all required me to bring in the product sealed. A simple receipt without the product isn't following the returns process properly.

Just another reason why I prefer to shop at BB than GS. BB never required me to have the product on hand in doing a return/rebuy.

They converted the Borderlands 2 ULCE to the used price months ago. I'd bet there's probably a few that went under our radar since then.

I just used the instructions on the packaging, suppressor first then stock. I caved bought one, but my GS is having a moving sale so it was 25% off :whee: Box was sealed in good condition the edition is truly Epic.
37.50 is a great price and it might not drop lower before they evaporate. If they get converted I will buy 3 give one to a friend, one to my kids (which don't exist yet), and keep the other new in box with open Marcus atop it.
