Not really a deal, but it is sold out everywhere else.

Xbox 360
http://www.frys.com/...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG DEAD

PS3
http://www.frys.com/...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG DEAD

PC
http://www.frys.com/...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG DEAD


Play Asia (US starting soon, Asia Version Available)
http://www.play-asia...d Edition).html

Edit: Also Amazon.de ships to the US. I bought my Sonic Generations Collector's Edition from them. Not sure if 360 will be region free, but PS3 is so I'll post a link to that.

http://www.amazon.de...42480565&sr=8-4 DEAD


http://www.amazon.it...7412908&sr=8-15 Game Region Free NEW

It's listed as 129 Euros, but they take the Italian tax off when shipping to the US, so it comes out to 109 Euros for the game and 10 Euros for shipping. So 117 Euros for the game shipped which is $150.xx. Only a few cents more than the US version!

I was on the Borderlands 2 Gearbox forums and someone was mentioning how you could preorder at Frys in store, but it wasn't available online yet. That was a few days ago. I guess we will see what happens.

While I did really like the first one I felt like it got kinda repetitive (even for a loot-fest) and I could never bring myself to finish it. Because of that I'm stuck between "excited" and "meh" for #2. I've read some previews and stuff but I haven't really seen much on what they're actually improving or if it's just going to feel like a big expansion pack.

Thats what their website says for preorders

A credit card authorization will be processed when your pre-order is placed. However, your credit card will not be charged until the product is shipped.

Ordered one. Missed out when they were on Amazon, so it's worth a try on this. Thanks OP.

Oh yeah, Fry's called me about 20-30 min ago to authorize my card. Cuz I ordered some other games too, and it was over $200. But I asked the lady on the phone about stock. She said she didn't have a number for how many they were getting yet, but at the time I was called they only had about 14 orders for the 360 version.

Edit: I don't know if that's 14 units total, or orders. Cuz some people could have ordered 2, 3 or more. But that's still low, and Fry's usually gets a decent amount of stock.

Hmm with tax and shipping, not sure if worth it. OP did not list the PC version, which they also have

This game is going to be awesome. So glad Far Cry 3 moved to Dec. 4. No internal conflict. Wub Wub

Might as well place an order here too. Missed out on big retailers, have one at buy.com, but who knows about them.

Thank OP, was going to try Frys the morning of the release since I missed out on Amazon and Gamestop.

Still mad at myself for not getting one from amazon or BB when I had the opportunity. I have one on buy.com but I might place another order for one here since I'm not too confident with them.

I was so pissed I missed out on the preorder for this...now it's available I can't pull the trigger. I'll be satisfied with Vanilla. Or maybe I'll randomly find one a year from now at Best Buy for $29.99 haha!

This is awesome (if it ends up coming through). What with all the gearbox guys saying they prob. won't be making more. I see people posting $150 though. I had to pay $160 for shipping. Anyone else?

I can't do it. over $170 with tax and shipping. I will probably be able to get one at GS after the 48 hour hold.

Thanks OP! Tough to shell out an extra 25 on shipping and tax but I guess thats what I get for not ordering the first couple days it was up. :(

Am I mixing this up with another title/CE where people were saying only GS, AMZ and BB were the only real retailers getting supplied with these? If so, it seems to me that Fry's is gonna get the shaft like FYE and Buy.com. Then again, they didn't have problems getting the Diablo 3 CE so I dunno. What also seems unusual to me is how Fry's is listing them available for sale way after the other retailers were told to shutoff preorders. I think all of the retailers stopped taking preorders at the same time making me think it was a coordinated communication effort by 2K.

Either way, thanks OP I missed out on this and will place a preorder in.

Now playing:

Does this put a constant hold on cc until released? If so, that's ridiculous.

I'll voice my concerns about trusting Fry's with any pre-order. They're notoriously bad about over selling their pre-orders. I won't be pre-ordering from them any time soon even if that means I miss out. I'd rather hold my money for a sure thing than gambling on if I'll get a copy.

EDIT: Didn't someone from the game company say they sold out of them day 1 and had no plans to get more out? I don't remember who it was but it was at E3.

I'd say they're pretty confident about getting copies since my local Frys had signage today promoting pre-orders for the Ultimate edition all over their 360 section. Looked like it was the big pre-order they're pushing at the moment.

Why would they have it listed for sale, have its own item number etc of they knew they weren't getting them in. Apparently Fry's starting excepting preorders for this a few days ago I'm store, and just listed it on the site today. They may oversell preorders but those who order early will probably get one. Guess we'll see.
