This may be YMMV, my local best buy clearanced the PS3 edition of the CE to $30 today as pictured. I had a friend with me who wanted the 360 edition (store had one of each) and it rang up $60, though the GM gave it to him for $30 as well, stating "just get rid of it". Hah!

It's not YMMV and I think there's a thread floating around on this already. Nevermind, it's the same price at GameStop is all.

There is for gamestop... I'm not aware of any best buy drop, and if I'm not mistaken, all best buy clearance prices are YMMV.


You edited after I replied... don't forget this comes with a hardcover short novel, exclusive to best buy.

Would be nice to grab one at that price but my BB doesn't have any for either system. And I called the Gamestop nearby that had one and they said it was the only CE copy and was sealed. Went to buy it and it turned out to be gutted copy for display purposes so to Hell with that . . .

I would so go for this except I prefer PS3 over Xbox and none of my stores have the PS3 version.

EDIT: Also if you could take the time to PM this price to Amazon (specifically the PS3 version) that would be super awesome.

Gamestop has the original CE which i think is a better deal for the same price, you get the cool packaging with the 4 disk soundtrack and art book. I seen people selling the slip cover and book for that novella edition on ebay for like $10 or so lol

Umm... he's clearly posting the CE, not the novella only edition.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

All you need is a pic showing the price from another BB store and/or a pic of the receipt w/price & the store #/phone # of the store. Your local BB can then call & verify the price(IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE IN STOCK) and they can match the price.

If you know how to talk to the CSR they can even swap PS3 or X360 versions for you too...this however would be YMMV. If you're really in a jam & gotten have the game a certain system buy the game & get a gift receipt & come back to do a even exchange using the gift receipt.

According to the Best Buy trade in site, the vanilla has a $8 trade in value...doubled with next week's trade-in bonus. Not a bad deal for anyone looking to upgrade to the CE and novella. Unfortunately, none in stock near me.

Good luck! This is one of the nicer CEs I own. Very well put together.

OK i didnt pay too much attention to the picture, yeah its the same one i picked up.. the title of this thread said Novella though which its not. I think these are clearance to get rid of all of them.
This is the Novella one

The initial copies of the CEs and standard editions both came with the Novella comic. The CEs with the Novella are just harder to find now.

Nevermind, it is roughly 26 pages long. Not worth spending $14 for it on ebay.

Funny, I just happened to see a few of the novella editions at 2 separate bestbuys today for $40. Never saw them before. I wonder if there was a recent purge of them. They have different upc, but same sku as regular.

I hope Amazon price matches this.

it's a clearance price not sale so you won't see them match but in the future they may drop the price.

GameStop has this for the exact same price, so you could ask them to PM GameStop's price instead.

Anyone mind linking us to the search results by SKU ? I could only find the 360 version online, but not the PS3 version. :(
