But why? Its not fan service--this is a new IP.
It is just to capitalize on the hype and maximize profit.
When its released and still available we will all feel a little disappointed. I know the feeling buying some of these in the past, I have learned my lesson.
It may be overproduced, but the fact that it's a GS exclusive, is a new IP, and is so highly anticipated tells me that it isn't and will probably sell out and be hard to find. If they wanted to overproduce it they'd probably be selling it at more retailers than just GS. And it's apparently a $200 MSRP statue. I don't know but I don't think that's the given msrp for most of these CE statues. It should
be a quality statue.
We'll see I guess when it sells out (or doesn't) (it will)
Also a couple more things. It's not just highly anticipated, it's also a near guarantee this will be the next Bioshock or Mass Effect or Uncharted. It will almost certainly be all over GOTY lists unless something catastrophic happens or it takes a lot of hits for being too much like Uncharted.
Second, as far as I know Gamestop.com (US) is the only place you're going to be able to buy this particular version of the game with the statue. Other countries actually got crappier CEs than the US for once. So anyone in the world that wants this version will have to buy it from there.
