I thinking about pre-ordering it... given this controversy, it could potentially ante up its value.

Then again, it's really... unpleasant, to say the least.


+1. I will be kicking myself if it is worth a lot of money, though I have no desire to own it.

I'm on the fence about it. I did like the first Dead Island game but I think the rigormortis edition is better content wise. Depending on release date and if they actually do release it, I may double dip.

I think the Zombie Bait version is very, very stupid. It's almost as stupid as the 'controversy' surrounding it. The whole world has turned into a bunch of touchy little children that can't wait to find the next thing to be offended or outraged by.


Agreed on the controversy part. I'm still back and forth on the Zombie Bait edition by itself.

Well, if they do then I would hope no one on here will actually buy it.


I F'n love the looks of it, and I'd love to have the torso on my mantle right next to my CE of Walking Dead 2 ....

I don't know why everyone is so pissy about this thing, I think it's amazing

Anyone in the US importing the MGS rising LE? From which retailer? I have mine preordered from Zavvi, and well... It appears there's a stigma associated with zavvi when it comes to MGS

That would be because of the the way they shipped the MSG Collection.
So many people got crushed boxes.
Was a whole thing here on CAG.

I know :/

Do you think its wise that I'm preordering the MGS Rising LE from Zavvi? I know its a risk considering what happened. Otherwise, where is another good place to import it from?

You can't at least from the UK because it is Zavvi exclusive like MGS HD was.

Times like these are a good reason to have friends that live overseas so they can order in store and get it for you.

I only order from Zavvi and don't really use the others.

Yep we are getting it. I played a bit of the Japan version and the gameplay is stellar.

Since I am in hype mode for Xillia (my most anticipated game this year by far) I ordered this last week:

It's mine, too. I was obsessed with Graces F for a straight month. I went above and beyond the platinum to get a perfect save file; I love that game! I hope Xillia doesn't come out until later in the year, though. From May through August I will be spending every waking hour studying for the MCAT. I can't afford to get sucked into Xillia during that time. It would be nice to not have it sitting on my shelf taunting me the entire time. lol

Makes me sad since I sold my ps3 when times got rough.
And lost all my gameshare games.

Maybe when the white one is cheap I may get that.
Tales of Graces F was good.

Wow, I didn't expect to see another cag interested in the medical field. I've got my MCAT scheduled this Spring and had to cut off almost all entertainment sources, including games, to prepare myself. As a person going through the same route, I wish you luck!

Concerning Xillia, its a superb game. The thing I didn't like about it was the split story path right when you start the game.

I think they are a good company and stuff came great for me.

Hey, good luck to you, too! Be prepared to not get in the first year of applying, regardless of how strong your application is; that's all I've been hearing from everyone. haha

Both are fine. Game's website can be really finicky, though. Don't order 'boxed' games from any UK retailer, though; they will come in a padded envelope and are 99% likely to have minor to severe damage.

All of their pre-order bonuses are UK only, so you can't get the steel by ordering from them. You can grab the same steelbook, by itself, from amazon.de, though.

I pre-ordered FFXIII-2 Crystal Edition from game.co.uk in the past and I got the pre-order bonus steelbook that was UK only. Of course that was when they were at risk for bankruptcy... and they canceled my pre-order. But I got a free steelbook out of it. So it might have been a one time thing.:-P

This sucks. Zavvi just sent me an email saying:
I am sorry to let you know that we are unable to despatch Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance outside of the United Kingdom.

We have cancelled your order and no money has been taken from your account.

You can re-order this item if you have an alternative delivery address within the United Kingdom for us to despatch to.

I'm very sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you.
