Everything but the season pass they offered when it was available for preorder off the website. It's nearly sold out at all Gamestops and Best Buys. They are going for $140-170 range on Ebay.

I'm glad to see they are holding on to these to sell them at full price rather than full-fill the pre-orders for places that short changed customers like Sears/K-Mart who got these for $70.

It's really not fair to blame THQ for Sears' retarded business practices.

Anyone else not receive an email confirmation? I ordered about 30 minutes ago and nothing yet, but maybe that's normal for THQ.

$10.35 shipping charges for cheapest shipping. Ouch.

Is it really hard to find? I had no idea. I checked on Gamestop's site and there is an abundance of them in my area (San Francisco Bay Area). I guess it's sold out in more rural areas.

Those are all there for pre-orders. You'd have to convince them to sell them to you.

After reading your comment I called two stores and they said they're for anybody who wants to buy them. Maybe some pre-order people flaked? I derno.

Is it worth picking this up? I'm a Darksiders fan and wondering if its worth it to buy this for $100.00

Most stores should be selling any remaining preorders since it's nine days past the release date. However, I have come across GS stores that will hold CEs for 2+ weeks.

I think it depends on that particular stores policy as well as how much was put towards the preorder by the buyer

100 pages. The last page includes an advertisement for a full Darksiders II art book coming in the future. The art book is nice, but on the small side, and not complete since a full art book is coming later.

All of mine either say two weeks or never for CEs... I guess the managers in my area are just sticklers.

From those CAGs that are GS employees, the "official" policy as I understand it is 2 days for all pre-orders, subject to store manager discretion.

That's why you have this discrepancy all over the map on how long stores hold onto pre-orders.

This is 100% what I needed to know. If there's a more full fledged art book coming out later on, then I can honestly say my interest in the CE goes down quite a bit. I've already picked up an LE because I want to support Vigil since I thoroughly enjoyed Darksiders 1.

Thanks for the input!

Mine usually let them go after 2 days if they have lots of copies. With more niche games, they usually hold them for a week at least. And then they gut it.

saw a few unboxings, doesn't seem to warrant the $100 asking price...just my honest opinion...the first game was great though!

Thank you for the thread. I did not think I would be able to find this for the regular price. This is likely the last chance I would have had.

Here is the review for the Collector's Edition that I read last night. This guy pretty much nails it. Good pictures included. Anyone on the fence may want to read this first and then make their decision. It seems Darksiders fans will really appreciate this.
