That's a great price, but it's also kind of annoying that they advertised this $2 less yesterday as a "deal of the day!". They did the same thing when I bought the Dexter blu-rays, and a week later they were even cheaper than the Deal of the Day (more like Week).

It is, but I'd highly recommend against it.

Why would anybody buy anything brand new anymore unless you have a gift card or store credit to blow? Seriously, this is getting ridiculous, I mean it's good for us cheapasses but it's still ridiculous.

I couldn't even recall half the games I've seen drop in price like this so quickly over the past 4 or 5 months.

It's selling great actually. Sold twice as much as the original already, top of the UK and Steam charts, probably close to the top, if not the top spot for the US this month too.

yeah, just cause something is on sale doesn't mean it's tanking.

Also, why the hell are people bitching that it's cheaper than day 1? 1) You got it on day 1 so it's your own damn fault. It's not like you don't know this is a pattern 2) you had it a couple weeks longer than other people. If that's not worth paying the extra $xx dollars then... wait for it.. DON'T BUY IT ON DAY 1.

Felt the same way after DKCR, Epic Mickey,MJ: The Experiencem and Kirby's Epic Yarn dropped at least $10 really quick after I bought on launch day.

If it means anything, you can probably tack on Extraction as an offset. Once the regular editions come out, you'll need to purchase it on PSN, and PSN doesn't usually have sales on new content until a few months.

It's really hard to resist buying a game I really want at launch, but I just know most of them will drop at least $10 in a week or two after they come out regardless of how well they sell.

Except that Extraction is still included with these shipments.

Which is why I said once the regular edition version is released. By the time the game hits $20 prices, the LE will most likely be difficult to find.

Yeah same here pretty much. I'm only making exceptions for either A) game has promotional credit IE Call of Duty with $20 credit with pre-order or B) The game is called Mass Effect 3. or C) It's a niche title that I know for sure won't be over shipped and relies on first week sales (which I thought of Deathsmiles but even that dropped in price eventually).

To clear the record once and for all: I just got my DOTD copy of DS2 that I ordered yesterday (shipped from PA to NJ, I love Prime!) and my standard version is indeed the Limited Edition copy with Extraction on-disc.

First Dead Space dropped like a rock. Looks like this will do the same.

remember that amazon did have this onsale day 1, it was 57.99 with a $10 promo credit
I'd think that aggressive $41.99 price point is a direct result of gamestop offering the game used for $42.99

also, speaking as a cag, that's what this site is all about, games going on sale, games getting price drops, games getting cheaper. Day 1, Day 10, Day 100 prices trend downwards, it's great for consumers.

And I was kicking myself for not grabbing the $40 used copy I saw @ Bull Moose on launch day!

I picked up the CE day one and I was lucky enough to get it for 30% off and convinced amazon to give me the $10 promo credit, but they without my asking gave me $20 instead. As far everyone complaining about it dropping in price so soon and it also indicating the game is bad/sold poorly...We are all CAGers here. We KNOW this is how things happen. 95-99% of the time you can get a game day ONE for $40 whether it be $20 off a future game or a direct discount of $20.

Dead Space is a great game with great atmosphere and gameplay and IMO a great story/lore. The movies are decent and add to the story decently enough. I never read the comics, but I did see the animated comics from PSN. I just got the Dead Space Martyr book from amazon yesterday and I'll be getting the Dead Space 2 CE guide today as well. Can't wait to read the book and learn about how Unitology started and learn more about Altman, I think that's the main topic of the book anyway.

In terms of the CE...is it worth $20 more to the average gamer...not so sure. The main appeal of Dead Space is the game, but to a person like me who really enjoys everything Dead Space it was a no brainer for me. To be honest the coolest part about it is the box. It's a work of art in and of itself, very metallic in look and has a good sturdy construction. The plasma cutter is small and is made of plastic, but it's very well detailed and I like it a lot, I just wish the head/barrel or whatever it's called swiveled like it does in the game.

Just giving my two cents on the matter.

Bought the game day 1 for $60 and still don't regret it, I'm a groupie for this game. It also kept me challenged for sure. Conserve that ammo!

That seems to be what most folks are saying here - they still are selling the LE when you order the standard edition.
