I'm really tempted to get this even though I'm not a big fan of fighters.

Haha that's how I'm feeling. Sony and DC let me down with DC Universe but I was suckered into the collector's edition super hard with that one. I don't have any fighters at the moment though, so having a DC fighter as my first might not be a bad idea. I'm really liking what Walmart's offering on this game, but the Best Buy Zombie Mode seems ill too. Decisions decisions...

I Can tell you by default MK vs. DC is totally not worth it. The game is so clunky.

I will probably go GS Collector's edition just because I have credit.

I wish it was steel book though. Lucky Europeans.

I want to get it at Best Buy for the $20 but I also want the Red Son pack. If they end up giving Batman his Red Son outfit I'll probably bite the bullet and go with GS. lol

The Walmart version is tempting with the Arkham City skins, but I'm still leaning towards the UK CE which has a better looking statue and a Steelbook case.

It will be helpful if the links to buy the products from each retailer are in the OP.

This is one I am actually gonna preorder... Question is where from? I'm torn between what Gamestop offers and what Best Buy has...

Best Buy would be the best choice for the $20 GC (if you're an unlocked member, anyway). The only problem with BB is waiting a goddamn month for the GC. In a month, I'm willing to bet the game will have been on sale for $39.99.

I'm not an unlocked member but will buy membership... I'm torn because I like the Red Son skins and missions but I also like the zombie mode and that bad ass Barman skin from BB

If you get the CE from BB, do you get the zombie DLC also?

If you don't mind a German box, Amazon.de has the EU version available for shipping to the US.

http://www.amazon.de...-2#lbhuc_392529

I'm holding out hope that Amazon UK opens up US shipping on it, since I'd prefer an English box, but if all you want is the EU statue, then the German one will do it.

I may actually pre-orderthis one for the goodies. Now if i can just talk myself into buying the collector's edition...

As others have stated, BB and GS are looking like the best pre-order packages. Depending on what store you dislike least...


*edit- man, we did get robbed on the statue didnt we? Wonder why the different versions?

Has to be a domestic violence thing (Batman attempting to choke/hit Wonder Woman). Its ok to show a woman choking and attempting to impale a man but if a guy is seemingly going to punch a woman no good in the good ol USA

Shouldn't batman be making love to wonder woman instead?

They've been together in the comics/cartoons right?

As always, I go where the money is. In this case, the $20 RZ cert from Best Buy.

Also, if you are a BBY Silver member and you pick up this game before April 18, you still have 60 days to PM it any price drops at BBY.

Is the post purchase price match initially extended for Reward Zone Premier Silver customers?

Yes. Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 60 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or before April 18, 2013. Reward Zone Premier Silver customers will receive a 15 day post purchase price match to Best Buy's prices for purchases that occur on or after April 19, 2013.

And it's only $7 more than the gimped US version.

I added links to all the different pre-orders. I realized when I was done, it was kinda lazy, so later today I'm gonna have console specific links per retailer.

Thanks for the thread - definitely helped organize it for me. I'm still probably gonna go with the BB offer. I'd like to see some reviews on the fightstick before release, hopefully.

Guys, the statue is probably going to be very poor quality. It's not worth ordering the UK edition for. If you want a fairly priced DC statue that has quality, go with an ArtFX or Bishoujo from Kotobukiya.

You're essentially going to pay like $30 for a statue, granting the other $10 to be allocated for the steelbook and comic. I can assure you, you're not going to get a great statue out of it.

Hmm, anyone following this one know what the missions are? The Red Sun thing or whatever seems like it will have story implications or something, but that $20 RZ cert is pretty great. Thinking back to MK there weren't really extra missions outside of the story mode, and I just figured that there would be standard story like in the recent MK and then the arcade mode with individual endings, but the mission thing makes it sound like I'm incorrect there.

Feel like MK wasn't entirely worth the $45 I payed for it at a TRU sale around release, but that is also the only fighter besides the DoA games I'm any good at. I need to read up more on this one, I guess. It looks pretty cool, but I've also heard some hesitant pre-release rumblings as well. Who knows.

Very unlikely related to the main plot. Red Son is an elseworld story where Superman lands in mother Russia during the Stalin era. So it's likely that it's just a side story that tells another story set in that elseworld and isn't related to the main story at all.
