Well, to be honest I not know what should be categorized as a "long" preorder window before OOS, I remember the loot chest was OOS faster?


Not really a good comparable. Loot Chest was a CE for an established IP, Last of Us is a new IP.

I dont know, i got P4G: Solid Gold quite easily. i dont get the big deal over Ni No Kuni. ive played it, it's really not that great. DmC is better.


P4G was easily pre-orderable, until they ran out of stock. If you managed to get one after that, good for you; that's anecdotal, though, and it was still hard to get. Also, you just compared a character action game to a JRPG. I would say that Total War Shogun 2 is light years better than COD, but that's a stupid comparison now, isn't it?

Got my dead space dev team edition today! Love it! #2185/5000


Got mine today. #2092. It's very nice. For the OCD collectors it's not sealed.

Odd thing, I'm guessing because of the weather, there was condensation on the outside of the tin. It came in a styrofoam coffin which was good.

So they've changed the art on the steelbook in the UK/EU Injustice: Gods Among Us CE? Dang it - that was half the reason I was going to import it. I really liked the look of the first steelbook image they released. Not sure if I'm going to bother getting it now as I don't like the new steelbook art.

I got mine today also. I think the number was 2767. It is a thing of beauty and was worth every penny.

Last year the only CE's I remember people being upset over not getting were:

-Witcher 2 Dark
-Bioshock Loot Chest
-Persona 4 Gold
-Darksiders 2 Mask

Just recently Ni No Kuni wizard's.

Other LE's were widely available I assume as I didnt really see a uproar from fans on it being hard to find.


unless im mistaken there isnt a bioshock loot chest. I think you mean Borderlands 2 ultimate loot chest.

I'm not comparing the games, only the preorder window during which it is available. And hoping to get some ballpark numbers from vets.

I think it might drop in price quite quickly. Doesn't seem to be a lot of hype for it. I like the figure that comes with it, though.

That's my point, those pre-order windows aren't comparable because there are too many variables in play. An existing IP will have a higher sales target, a higher visibility, higher marketing allotment, and higher production runs. For the most part, none of those things exist with a new IP.

Sure, Last of Us is a fairly high-profile new IP, but the fact is that only games who pay attention to the industry will know much about it. Knowledge of Borderlands 2 on the other hand was inescapable due to the wild success of the first title.

It should be expected that a pre-order window for a truly "limited" premier IP sequel would be much, much shorter than the pre-order window for an equally limited new IP. Take the Dead Space Ultra Limited edition. It was a new IP and was limited to just 1,000 units and the pre-order window from EA lasted almost up to the release date.

I can see this one hitting $50 before selling out. No way would I pay $100 for it.

Yeah I really just wanted the Marker statue, but couldn't justify spending $100 for it. Now I know I could've broken even and actually made some money while keeping ithe statue. XP

I don't know if this has been discussed, but the PAL version of Injustice CE gets a WAY better statue.

I can't get over Batman's stupid face in the American one. I love video game statues but this would be awful to display.

Yeah, I got excited until I heard it's made of foam again. Then I had all kinds of horrible flashbacks related to the care package.

So The Last of Us Pandemic Edition is basically ending up so limited as most were thinking/hoping? I love the statues that come with SOME of these games, but I do love the fact that they are limited as well. Whats every ones current thought on this edition since it still seems readily available on Gamestop.com?

Well, it's only February and this game releases May. If gamestop hopefully ends their online preorders by the end of this month or even by the end of march then things might get juicy. Look at the DeadSpace 3 dev kit. Took a while to sell out, but once it went, everyone got hungry.

Did the Deadspace 3 Dev really sell out that slowly? I preordered when I first heard of it and don't think availability lasted very long. I too am wondering about how supposedly "limited" the PPE is. Initially when it went OoS was a good sign, but now I wonder how many they plan on making.

Pre-orders are now live for the UK Collector's Edition of Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Amazon UK - http://www.amazon.co...60154951&sr=1-4

EDIT - I just tried pre-ordering it and Amazon UK is telling me that this item can't be shipped to my US address. Let me know if anyone else has better luck. :(

GAME's CE pre-order isn't live yet.

Thanks for the heads up on this finally being listed! But, yes, as of right now it will not allow for US shipping. That could possibly change though - as I have imported countless games from Amazon UK - several of which were initially non-importable.

In other non-importable news - the God of War Ascension Dualshock Controller is listed on Amazon UK now... but not yet available for US shipping. I do not believe this controller is ever coming to the US. Still nice to look at....

I'm going to hold off on trying either Amazon.fr or Amazon.de because I'd prefer to have all of the packaging in English (ie outer box).

Thanks for the info on pre-orders sometimes taking a while to become US-elligable. I've ordered quite a bit of stuff from Amazon UK since they started shipping to US, but I don't think I've ever pre-ordered anything there. I'll keep an eye on it and keep my fingers crossed.

Looks like Gamestop and Walmart are sold out of Aliens Colonial Marines CE, but it is still up on Amazon, Target, and pretty much everywhere else.
