Resistance 2 CE should have been $60, it was not worth $80 with the crappy figurine and crappy artbook (heh, if one can call it such). Compare to Fallout 3 CE, Resistance 2 CE is pale in comparison.

Is this really a surprise? Almost all of these collectors editions drop in price a few weeks after release. I've all but stopped buying games that have any sort of collectors edition at release, just to wait and buy the collectors edition for the price that the regular edition came out at (or even sometimes cheaper).

I'd say it's a surprise. This is a highly anticipated release and it's only been a few weeks. AND it's a $20 drop. Even Metal Gear Solid 4 took a month to drop $10.

Most Collector's Editions take a while to drop unless the game is crap and even then generally most have a period of time directly after release where the eBay market price hikes up because people panic they won't be able to get one.

I dunno about that, I buy a lot of limited editions, and this is the only one I've bought in the last couple of months to have a price drop this drastic, or any sort of price drop at all really, at least from looking at Amazon.

I still have this sealed somewhere around here. Probably going to return it and just buy it at the lower price again.

Not sure how that HD DVD promotion work, but it isn't worth the trouble since you'll also lose $3.50 for shipping it back.

I'd hardly call this a price drop until it hits other retailers. If it drops at Gamestop or Best Buy, then it's safe to say it's a drop. Over the past few weeks there have been many deals on several of these collectors editions for various AAA titles. This "drop" is nothing new for the collectors editions of a game.

Decisions... I was planning to get R2 used with LBP and Fallout 3 in the GS b2G1, but I may just get this, R2 is the one I want immediately (I can wait a year for fallout, and LBP will only get better since I'm not interested in creating). I also prefer to buy new, so I may stick with this.

There's also no guarantee my GS will actually have those three and I'm not travelling all over town.

If you still have the reg edition wrapped... return it and get the CE, for $60, worth it... Well, chances are, you have not play it yet, you will not play it soon...

Well, it cost $60 when i first bought it from Amazon anyway, so come to think of it, it's the same deal. $10 GC (applied instantly, the promo was for reg edition, but got adjusted to the CE) and $10 from BML...

If this CE is steelbook, then i'll say, it's worth it, otherwise, $60-$70. The game is cool though, you gotta play! For some reason, i like the first one better.... The 2nd one plays more like Resident Evil.

Amazon has screwed the loyal customers again. Eternal Poison first, now this :cry:

Has anyone who preordered the game actually received the bonus skin download?

Simple answer: the extra contents and the figurine of this CE suck. Besides the Making DVD, the figurine is cheapy looking and the artbook has only 16 double pages (including the cover)! Tell me if this extra contents worth the extra $20? It's no brainer why Amazon dropped this CE dud because once people realize they get crappy stuffs for $80, no one is going to recommend it to their friends.

If it were to have a steel case then I can justify the extra dollars. Have you seen the artbook from Fallout 3 CE, now THAT is the artbook this game should have.

How is this screwing the loyal customer? As time goes on, things go down in price and apparently, some things drop faster in price than others. I'm actually glad I'm broke, saved me $20.

DAMN! I shouldn't have preordered this ever. But I could return it, luckily. Mine is still wrapped! I hope this stays in stock long enough for me to replace.

The code for the skin is apparently inside the box.
