I dropped my CE pre-order for this. $40 difference just didn't make sense. Sometimes you can find CEs cheap later.

+1
$40 difference is just too much, cancelled ce for se

20 credit for anything? So with other discounts it'd be $40 cost + $20 back to a place I spend tons of money? I'm going to regret not getting this lol.

I locked in my pre-order for the CE last July, with video game credit that was about to expire. Is it possible to to move VG credit around to another order by calling Amazon? I was really looking forward to the CE, but the extra content isn't worth the $40 difference to me.

I gurantee you'd be able to sell the extras for more than $40. I think all the DLC alone would get that amount, the plush $15, and the book ends $20

I hope so. Definitely feeling some buyer's remorse on this one. To make matters worse, Amazon hasn't even done the pre-order price guarantee for my order yet, so I'll paying a few cents short of MSRP.

Going to call amazon about getting the $20 for my CE. I spent at least a thousand dollars at amazon on games alone and they give $20 for the standard, but the CE is $80 and they give nothing...yeah logic ftw.

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.

I was on the fence but in for one!

No release date shipping is unfortunate, but I'll take the $20 credit. :)

This applies if I had it pre-ordered already right? I used up credit on it before it expired and I don't want to lose that.

NVM, I read it there, so I'm assuming yes, if not I can always contact CS.

Was going to wait for this to drop but with the $20 credit combined with Amazon credit I already have, I can't say no.

Thanks OP.

I was also wanting the CE... but this deal is too good to pass up!

Dang, no release day shipping, but not a dealbreaker for me.

I'm on the fence. I wanted the CE but didn't want to pay full price. The $20 credit would have been a sure deal maker, but it's not enough for me to pick up the regular edition. I have a ton of games, so by the time I get to this one I think it will already have dropped in price.

Definitely let us know how that goes please. I also preordered the CE and the lack of credit is giving me buyer's remorse like a mofo.
