Some of the ebay auctions were selling for at or under retail price. Crazy.

I've been trying to find a place to preorder this for so long, having decided I wanted it after it basically sold out everywhere. Snagged one, thanks OP! The trade off is I'll have to wait until Thursday now to play since I ordered it so late, but God of War, Gears of War, Tomb Raider, Fire Emblem, Ni No Kuni, etc should keep me busy til then...(my backlog is getting too big!)

I mentioned this in the CE thread too, I can't imagine how they profit.

haha. Pass.

You should probably make sure something is actually rare, and isn't going to come back in stock, prior to doing a no reserve auction style listing this close to release day.

Can you say "OOOPS"


Edit: LOL one just ended at $140.01 and free shipping to boot, plus it was coming with extra DLC. Would have been a better deal then getting it from Amazon! The fact it was coming in and out of stock at so many places was not a good sign...

I foresee lots of these CEs being gutted in attempt to auction off the items individually... and then possibly quite a few returns to Amazon.

Keep AWD on watch in the next coming months.. you may see these Ultimate Songbird Editions for cheap!

Wow, a few sold for around $130.00 with free shipping. After ebay and paypal take their cut plus shipping you'll actually be losing a chunk of cash. I bet some won't get shipped out.

Another reason I see this going cheap is that they were selling season passes for whatever DLC they have in the pipeline. When I see that, its at least 3 big pieces of DLC if not 5 plus skins or a new skill or something. With as big a game as it is, I suspect a GoTY Edition in time so it will make the game itself worthless and the collector's edition will drop to around $85 or so.

Maybe they're stolen? I ebay sell a fair amount and I'd never take a loss with all those fees. Makes no sense unless it was free.


No all the lowest ones are auctions. Like GBA said people shouldn't have put them up for auction they should have done a Buy It Now if anything.

Also the only real reason to get it is for the statue since the rest of it is already in the version that's $70 less.

This really isn't going for that much... I figured it would be selling for a lot more. Many copies are on eBay going for less than $175, and many going for less than the MSRP.

Reviews so far have been a lot better than I expected them to be. I figured this would be in the 85-90% area range but Levine must be some kind of magician.

I'm SO torn on this. I really only want the statue. But $150 is a hard pill to swallow. Do I buy while its in stock or hope it will end up like most CE's and the price will drop shortly!?

That's weird. I guess Amazon got more in than they expected? They are starting to package them up

Same here. Those reviews makes me think msrp of this edition is still worth it. Sessler did a pretty great review on the game too. Dude knows his thesaurus really well.:D

Will somebody take a set of high resolution pictures of the statue when they receive it?

I was thinking the same thing but 500 + people seems like a lot. I guess Amazon's scope is clouding my thought process

I'm sure there were a lot of cancellations the past week or so once people realized their was very little resale profit. Hype and interest in this CE was HUGE when it was first announced... and then they delayed the game... and despite it releasing tomorrow their really isn't that much buzz.

Still think it's a really cool CE though

i agree, i think the original delay of the game, will hurt/ affect the sales for the game. Even with the hype and stellar review/ ratings. It seems like all the reviews score are around the range of 9+. The reviews makes the game seems like it is the second coming of Jesus.

I went ahead and ordered the PC Ultimate Songbird Edition awhile back. Not really too worried about this not being rare. I just bought it to enjoy the statue as a display piece like I do with every CE I buy.

Same. I normally could give 2 shits about the rest of the CE stuff. I just love the statues.

I wish the poster was a Murder of Crows poster rather than the Devil's kiss one. I'll still frame it and hang it with my other 5 Bioshock lithographs/posters

Seems like amazon has 800+ Xbox and 500+ ps3. Is amazon stock checker usually accurate?
