Created this thread for maximum visibility, since this thing is currently OOS for pre-orders pretty much everywhere else.

360: $140.17 http://www.buy.com/p.../232097872.html

PS3: $144.31 http://www.buy.com/p.../232097874.html

CAUTION: Video game pre-orders from buy.com cannot be canceled once they are placed.

They have all 3 versions "in stock" but as other CAGs have mentioned buy.com is very iffy pre-orders that are OoS everywhere else.

As a side note, they're charging 2x as much for shipping for the PS3 version.

In their defense, I did get a Diablo 3 CE from them when I preordered a week or so before it came out.

Placed an order as well. If I get it that would be cool. If I don't, it's not the end of the world.

In for one. I was so pissed when I went into gamestop (rare occurrence) to pre-order this and they stopped taking them. Only to come home and find out that EVERYWHERE stopped taking them.

So I placed the order on BUY.com but will cancel if Gamestop, Amazon, or Best Buy, start their orders again.

Jumped on this because I'm scared of the real availability. Guess you can't cancel buy.com pre-orders. But if I find it anywhere else, I'll prob just return this. Or sell it at my cost to someone who didn't get one.

After they sold me a broken Xbox 360 controller (the new transforming d-pad one), then told me to just send it into Microsoft (same week I got it), I said I'll never shop there again. Screw Buy.com...and Howie Mandel can kiss my ass, too.

OOS? When did this happen? The game doesn't come out for 4 more months. wtf?

Ordered one, but I'll look elsewhere until release.

Id becareful of buy.com. I got screwed on ME3 collector edition when it came out. I ordered it months before hand only to never recieve it, still get charged, and having to spend hours with trying to get them to cancel it since it was technically a preorder even though it was past its release date and they had none to ship.

I can't believe this thing is already sold out everywhere. I don't think it hasn't been a month yet since the announcement but man, I'm pissed I can't preorder it. I didn't even know it was available to preorder to start with.

I'm suprised more people aren't biting on this with all the clamor over it. I don't see much risk, if its cancelled at least you tried, and anyone worried about packaging, even if they didn't even ship it in a box, that plastic vault everything is in is probably so tough(and already looks worn it) probably wouldn't matter much, unless everything comes in its own box.

Thanks OP! Cannot believe I waited too long since everywhere else is OOS. Took a chance with them plus had a $10 off $50+ purchase coupon since I haven't bought anything from them in nearly a decade lol Got it for 142. :) Let's see what happens now...

Waited so long? They just announced it 16 days ago. That's not nearly enough time to get word out and get pre-orders in. I wonder if retailers are being cautious or Gearbox is responsable for the short pre-order window.

Crysis 2 Limited Edition.

Diablo III has been selling above market.

Dead Space Ultra Limited has a lot of value.

The rest, not so much.

I can honestly see this one being pretty limited, the 100$ version might be a bit more common.

I preordered mine from amazon and literally a few days later it was sold out and even gamestop stopped taking preorders. My guess is they only plan to make so many of these.

For whatever reason it was 5$ off when I ordered on amazon and it comes with promo credit, release day shipping and all the pre-order goodies.

When did this happen? I preordered on Amazon as well and I didn't get your luck. It just automatically happened? If so I might need to contact them.

I grabbed one at JR.com as well...

so... how good is JR.com? I've never heard of them. Are they "way" more reliable than buy? If so I'll cancel my order at buy, but I figure it doesn't hurt to jump on these and sort it out later.

I really hope gamestop allows pre-orders again though since I'd rather get the bonus they're offering.

I don't get the reference, oh well. I'll wait for the GOTY version just like I did with the first game. I had more fun with the expansion packs than the main campaign. This looks awesome though.
