Just bought one at my local store. It's now $79.99 in-store. All of you lucky ones who bought it full price should return/rebuy. And for those of you looking for one, maybe you'll get lucky and find one =).

I assume this is an extreme ymmv, as I've checked a few stores around Glen Burnie, MD for one, mostly resulting in me getting laughed at.

I'm telling ya, this is going to be one of those horrible situations where some guy posts he just bought 3 for 50$ each at Best Buy and someone else drove an hour to pay full price at TRU in the middle of nowhere.

GOW 3 UE is just rare enough to where distribution issues will allow people to make money on ebay.

Hmm. Did the guy on slickdeals who claimed he got this in Philly copy your post word for word, or did you copy his?

you know.. amazon could be a better money source than ebay. On the initial date, amazon marketplace sold faster and hotter than ebay did. average price was about 170 plus 3.99 shipping.

If Amazon matches this price, it probably indicates that it'll be as rare as the legendary edition of Halo 3.

You'll probably want to sleep even longer and wait till Amazon actually has it in stock. Then again, their inventory workers might be scrambling for extra copies right now to match this price. Who knows?

He copied me, then. I don't even go to slick deals. CAG is the only "deal" site I use.

As for being "super duper rare," it is sort of. There are some stores around here with it in stock, but not al of them have it.

Figures.

It's near a near word for word post of what you have in the OP, posted over there.

Huh... I guess I'll check my local Gamestop to see if they have it in stock and return the copy I bought from Best Buy. $20 saved is $20.

Seems some people didn't pick up their pre-orders so all those are being released back to the general public to buy. The Ultimate edition does not show up on the site. Call up your local Gamestop and ask them to check their store and the computer. I just called and a local GS has 3 of them. Had them hold one back.

Happy hunting to the rest of you!

Huh...I saw one at one of my local Gamestop recently. I don't really need another copy but it might still be there. This was in Leominster, MA (45 minutes west of Boston).

This isn't YMMV it is company wide and there is already a thread discussing this here:

yup, saw one tonight, guess they didn't change the sticker b/c it said $99.99. If i saw $79.99 I would have silently cursed myself for paying $10 more..

WRONG, that thread is gamestop.com and this thread is gs B&M. There was no price drop.

In the DFW area and the few I checked the day after said everyone picked up their UE's. Though, there are MANY stores in the DFW area...

Picked one up today after trading in NSMB and Final Fantasy XIII. With edge and power trade bonus came out to $4.XX. Mine was tagged $79.99, I was lucky because the person who reserved it never paid in full.

The page is gone. It was up for a while, but not anymore. I really don't understand why GS takes these pages down. It's just stupid IMO. Why not let your customers see where the items are?

Does anybody know if the game is sealed by itself in the LE packaging, or is it already opened (i.e only the package is sealed, nothing else)?

So i would be able to score an LE, and then return the sealed game back to the store I got the regular edition from a few weeks ago.
