the walking dead collectors edition will only be 10.000 copies. so get yours while you can if interested


Who cares? It's a flimsy cardboard box and a different cover on a book you can buy elsewhere for less. Do you collect cardboard boxes and slightly different covers? I can understand if you were going to buy both items anyway, but if you're specifically buying this because you think it will be rare or valuable, you are kidding yourself.

I'll take this over the shitty arse overpriced SF Collection any day.

A lot of the CE have dropped in prices.
Uncharted 3 CE at BB is only 30 dollars.
Skyrim CE at GS is 60 dollars.
FF13-2 is 40 dollars at most stores.
SoulCalibur V CE 40 dollars at GS.
Mass Effect 3 N7 CE 30 dollars at GS.
And so on. I recomend if you want a CE you look at the stores prices right now because it probably cost less if it has been out for more then 6 months. Some might be sold out by now though.

not many collectors or limited editions are worth the asking price, if a game is made by a big publisher chances are there will be plenty meaning 4-6 months wait time but can pay less than half the price

i wanted witcher 2 dark edition i think it was called and around me in new orleans total of 8 gamestops got 1 and that was a pre order. so sometimes its hard to judge, i just got max payne 3 for $30 when i pre ordered GTA5 which i was planning to buy anyway. so that's huge saving for a game that came out not that long ago

walking dead
bioshock
gta 5

these 3 are the ones i see being very limited

I agree with you on this one... The cardboard box can easily be "hand made." The WD game is the very same standard version, no steelcase or anything. The only noticeable thing is the cover of the WD Compendium Vol 1, a different cover. However, that's plain lame no matter how you look at it. The compendium is not even hardcover for the record...

It's a limited collector's item. You can't hand make that box, and a different cover is still a different cover. For people that collect, this is plenty.

Passed on Persona 4 Solid Gold preorders since I've played the PS2 game, didnt want a Vita before, and have yet to play P3, but now I want it. What are the chances of the Solid Gold showing up at GameStop, or preferably Frys?

Unlikely, though there is a chance of some popping back up on Amazon as we draw closer to the release date, as what happened with The Witcher 2: AoK Dark Edition. I'm kind-of-sort-of holding out for that happening--if I can get one, I will; if I can't, I have the $29.99 Newegg preorder of the standard edition.

Wow! Thank you! I preordered one. I never ordered from them either, but from the retailer reviews, they seem to be fairly reliable. Using up my Black Friday funds already. Lol.

No prob! I just hope they actually do get the Premium edition. I thought it was exclusive to G'Stop and Amazon, but I guess I was wrong. At times I tremble with fear (not really) that they will actually send me the vanilla version. Time will tell...

Anyone know if the Amazon exclusive for Game of Thrones still includes the artbook? It's still pictured on the ad but says you get it when pre-ordering. They've dropped the price on the 360 version down to $19.92 so if it still comes with the book it's a great deal.

Yes, I can confirm from personal experience. You see that edition button under PS3 or Xbox360 version? Make sure Art Book Bundle is selected, not Standard Edition.

When did you try? Because it is new within the past couple weeks. Most recently I imported a Join Or Die version of AC3 from Amazon UK. All games I have imported have been PS3 versions, btw.

I wonder when preorders will open up at other sources besides Amazon? The outer box looks very flimsy, so this is definitely one I won't be ordering from them.

I'm not saying this as a fanboy or even being remotely rude, but that is a RENDERING. It is an artist mockup. Based on that fact alone, how can you tell what the paper stock is, thus determining its flimsiness?

Was it actually from amazon, not a seller; also, how long ago was it?

It doesn't change the fact that the box is much taller than it is wide, so unless they use very heavy cardboard, it will get dinged and dented. You're right that I can't say for sure, but I'm not going to take any chances.

Even though Amazon UK has removed most limitations to shipping games to the US, I have found a number that they still refuse to ship including Way of the Samurai 4 on the PS3 and a bunch of others. I'm not sure how the restrictions get put in place, but they do still exist for some titles.

True, in fact, if you are logged in to your Amazon account while browsing the UK site, it will even say it at the top of the product page. Something like 'this item cannot be dispatched to your address'. But, most games now are eligible. At least on the PS3 side of things.
