Sorry if this is posted already, did a quick search and didn't find it...

I just looked at this yesterday on Amazon and it was the same price as everywhere else ($34.99). Just happened to check now and I saw that it was now $10 less @ $24.25 *now $20.99*, which seems to be the price of the standard edition. May not fully be worth it, but I bought the one for XIII, so might as well grab this at this price too. And since it's just under $25, you will need to add something cheap or have Prime to get FS, but hopefully shouldn't be too hard. Here are the details for the guide from GS:


  • Exclusive coffee table book printed on highest-quality paper and bound in a padded hard cover.
  • Limited print run, includes two ribbon bookmarks.
  • Includes a 16-page bonus section exclusive to this edition.
  • Every secret, every unlockable, every side-quest, every mini-game, every Achievement and every Trophy revealed and explained in a dedicated Extras chapter. We've also added a story recap and an artwork gallery.
  • The dedicated Walkthrough charts the critical path through the main narrative. It also provides regular prompts and tips to direct players to side quests and other optional features within the game world.
  • The Tour Guide chapter includes one section per game location in each time period. This complements the Walkthrough by examining all optional activities offered in the game (side quests, mini-games, puzzles and power-leveling spots).
  • The Completion Timeline chapter offers a visual and streamlined guide to 100% completion.
  • The Strategy & Analysis section gives an advanced analysis of the game's key systems and features. This also covers the most complex topics such as character development in a thorough, yet user-friendly way.
  • All-encompassing Inventory and Bestiary chapters feature exhaustive lists and tables covering all enemies, weapons, accessories, items and shops.
  • The 100% complete guide to Final Fantasy XIII-2.
  • Carefully designed to avoid unnecessary story spoilers.

If you click the gold box icon at the top it'll bring you to a page where towards the bottom/middle area it'll say something like "such and such (your name's) Quick Picks" these are items suggested to you based on your search pattern, purchases, etc.. and given a 5% discount. There are ways to manipulate the picks too

Good one, Amazon. Just under $25, so it doesn't qualify for free shipping. The only thing I hate about Amazon.

Just noticed, the guide is $21.40 at B&N. Which is almost a 100% certainty that it'll be that price at Amazon shortly, to quicken that, feel free to suggest the lower price to them:

This will in turn (hopefully) mean I can get it for $20.33 in my Quick Picks, which would be awesome. :applause:

Thanks, just send a pm request to Amazon for it. Luckily with the price guarantee, should be able to keep everything in tact when they do lower it to compete with B&N (pretty confident that they would adjust it, too). 8-)

Nice, thanks. I just found some B&N giftcards I need to use up and most of their other stuff is overpriced.

In for two! AMZ will most likely PM B&N over and over again until it releases.

I forgot to say that I'll definitely be preordering this, but I'm waiting for it to show up in my Quick Picks first.

...However, the ME3 CE guide still hasn't surfaced in my Quick Picks yet (and I bought the Skyrim CE guide), so I'm very slightly concerned.

I hope Amazon matches... B&N's shipping is terrible. I ordered the Skyward Sword CE guide form them and they stuck it in a box too big and the corners/edges got dented up.

Will this guide likely be hard to find in stores later on and worth more than it's MSRP like the Skyrim CE guide? Or no?

The guide for the 1st game is still at the same price it was when it came out. So I guess that's about what this one will do

It is always hard to say with guides. Generally RPG guides are pretty safe to assume that with over all other genres but FFXIII's CE guide really hasn't spiked that much.
