The 1600 MS Points is a digital code. Is it possible for it to be out of stock?

Yes. Generally digital codes are not generated outside of the publisher / vendor. But are instead sent in encrypted batches to the retailer upon request. So it's possible to run out of digital codes. The same thing happens to Steam codes, etc, every now and then.

Steelbook case, character skins, digital map, probably some sort of weapons.

If you preorder Dead Island from Newegg, will you get the standard edition, or will you get the one with the steelbook case, character skins and etc?

A friend of mine played Dead Island: Riptide at PAX East, one time, and managed to crash the game hard. I hope they fix the bugs before release!

Nope--that's the main reason some people aren't biting at $19.99 for the standard edition. Why not wait for the GotY edition which will have all the DLC included at a better value?

The reason people aren't waiting is because there is still more DLC to come, they said there will be a second season actually...so it may be another year or so, maybe longer, for a complete edition to come out.

Also, thanks OP was able to pre-order Dead Island Riptide for $40 from Best Buy.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Like a Boss:rofl:

But still, that's disappointing. Anyone recommend Dead Island as a single player game?

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Newegg's boxart image for Dead Island Riptide (Xbox) shows the Special Edition, but nothing in the description indicates that it is. I'm torn, because my Amazon preorder is only $10 more and is definitely the Special Edition (and I'll get release day delivery).

Same here.... I really want the special edition with the steelbook case, but it IS $10 cheaper on newegg. :/ If it turns out newegg is giving the steelbook case too, I'll jump right on it.

But only the 360 version has the special edition picture... the PS3 version just has the standard edition pic.

I ordered it from Best Buy, thanks to the GCU $20 bonus it essentially makes the game $20 for me, since I paid it off with $20 in rewards and $20 in gift card and I get the $20 in rewards back. But if you're not a GCU member then there is no major reason to do this. Plus Best Buy is giving the steelbook as well as you know it's the SE. Price matching it is YMMV due to it being a pre-order, but I had zero issues with it.

So you were able to PM this with Best Buy?

Just pricematched at Bestbuy.com over the phone. Getting the Special Edition + Steelbook + $20 Reward Cert for $40. The Cert is as good as money to me, so it's like I'm paying $20.

Just was denied a price match over the phone. CS Rep claimed they would need to cancel my pre-order, and even then since the item is not immediately available (read: a preorder), the price wouldn't take. Will try again later. I just LOVE this new price match system.

My order total hasn't updated since getting my Pricematch, so maybe mine didn't take either. I do have a reference number that I'm holding on to just to be safe. The person I spoke to said that the difference would just be credited to my card, I'm assuming after they take the $50, they'll give me $10 back.

Edit: Was told that the price has successfully been modified, but will appear updated when the game is released. -Still going to hold onto that reference number though.

Ok, I was able to get the price match too, but it took quite a while. I thought she was going to give me grief because the Newegg site has a different picture than Best Buy does, but she eventually did it.

Yeah, I have a Wal-Mart, a K-Mart, and a Staples. Anything else is at least an hour drive. I'll probably just stick with my Amazon order...

I like $40 new games.
Thanks, OP & CAG.

Just an FYI, Dead Island Riptide is a $50 game, not $60, so this is a $10 savings, in case anyone was unsure.

Damn. Well perhaps I'll swing by tomorrow. I just don't want to get it from NewEgg, I haven't had the best luck with them, as much as others seem to have had.

If you get the free shipping, you'll either get it on Wednesday or Thursday. I always got mine on Thursday.

Depends on where you live, NJ and CA being warehouse locations, in the past pre-orders shipped on Mondays for me. In NYC, I usually get it Tuesday or Wednesday.
