So the only thing different from the regular edition is the "Promotional copy" stamp on the cover? I think I'll pass, especially for $30.

I don't understand what the fuss would be... the game was alright when it came out, but hasn't aged well I'm sure. Let alone the collectability of a greatest hits game that can be bought for $5 used at gs.

kids these days.......

A promo copy for $30? Just buy a regular one on half.com for $2. No reason to buy this one folks, I really doubt this one's "Exclusiveness" & long term value as well.

Great for hardcore collectors (I used to be...) but marriage and life has "forbid" me to make purchases such as this anymore... :(

I have to admit when I first saw this, I thought of the CAG April Fool's pranks. The weather's a bit hot for that ;)

Just looked- I have one I bought at CC for one cent. Never opened.

If they throw in free shipping, I'll consider taking one for free...

that's a little too much for me, maybe if I got a few coupons or something.

Ok so I guess I'm not the only one that didn't think this was anything special. I also remember seeing tons of these at circuit city.

So a company that is destroying the value of collectable games by reprinting them is trying to sell this item to collectors ....

I mean common I own tons of MK games and some collector editions to boot, but 30 bucks after a coupon for a greatest hits promo copy .... common....

I initially thought it was some retail kit edition that came with some cool stuff. Come on, that's no more than a regular edition marked for promotional use (and granted, a security sticker on top) and they want $30 for it. What a Rip-off.

So what distinguishing factors set this edition apart to make it valuable? Well, in addition to its origin of production, limited availability, and the current scarcity in the market, this version of Deadly Alliance still displays the coveted Sony UPC sticker on top.

Now I see why this is worth purchasing.... the coveted Sony UPC sticker!!!!

I'm a hardcore collector for version differences and even I would pass this one up.

Whoa whoa whoa there, Randy. GQD is anything but jerk offs. This just isn't their best discovery.

This is the exact opposite of what a post on cheapassgamer should look like.

I used to have one of these.. what a dumb thing to spend your hard earned money on. :\

Hey btw, if anyone has any mint/complete copies of MK: Deception: Kollectors Edition for Xbox that they want to get rid of.. let me know please.

Calling this a collectible is a joke. This was given away for free when you pre-ordered Armageddon. Did I mention this was free????? They gave away tens of thousands of copies. Now they want $40 ($30 for us I guess) for essentially a non-retail freebie that is in ugly greatest hits colors and wasn't even a great game? Oh, they also have over a thousand of them...Give me a break. This is an insult. Do not deal with these jokers.

I'm sorry....why the hell is this front page news? $30 for a promo copy of a game that can be had for a few bucks. Cheapy, I think you forgot what site you run. :roll:

Can't say I have a need for this, nor do I quite understand the collectibility of almost any PS2 game.

Doesn't deserve a front page ad...
Seriously, I doubt this will ever be worth more than the $30 some sucker is willing to pay for it lol
