Is there any word on whether the NA Arkham Origins CE is actually going to be rare?  I have one paid off at Gamestop that I want for display and play, but I'd of course be willing to wait a month or 2 if the price is going to drop, even $20.

 

It just depends on how many were produced. I held off getting it this time cause it was $120 and was banking on another $50-60 price tag about 5 months down the line when stores start to get rid of their stock. I lucked out and snagged Injustice CE about 2 or so weeks ago at amazon for $50. Also the same for Watch Dogs and AC4. If I can snag them for even 50% off their launch price after a while, I'll be  a happy camper. :)

Same here, although Im not a huge fan of the boxart. A steelbook would've been nice too. Man, I wish this was a launch title, best looking next gen game thus far.

The LE has different box art (foil treated) than the CE.

Why is the Assassin's Creed 4 Limited Edition for the PS4 both sold out at BestBuy and GameStop??? :headache: Didn't think it was gonna be sold out this soon already....


Preorders are ALWAYS cutoff on LE a minimum of 1 month in advance of release. Sooner for high demand and/or low supply CE like Tales of Xillia, GTA V, Last of Us, etc.

That Infamous CE sucks IMO. 2 was so much better; soundtrack, figure & the bag which I still use. Of course it helped that GS dropped the price to $60 a month after release.

No they aren't.  There are tons of LE and CE games that never have preorders cut off at all.  Lately it has been a more frequent occurence as publishers have tried to more closely match demand, but its still the exception rather than the rule and it generally doesn't happen for huge releases like Batman will be.

I'm also not impressed with its contents (was hoping for a figure), but I guess it's nice to see an $80 CE nowadays, what with all the $120 or more SKUs we've seen lately.

If you're still looking for Batman Arkham Origins CE, go hastings is still taking them. I've been searching every retailer for the last three days with no luck. Finally I remembered them and sure enough they were there. Good luck to all!

No, this isn't always the case.

Anyone have any clue when an unboxing video may be released for the Batman Origins CE? I don't know if the dev. released early videos for their previous ones or not, but I'm hoping they do with this one.

I remember gohastings was actually sold out at one point (ps3).  They may have just within the last few days made it available again and it probably won't last long.

Another (potential) source for the Batman CE is CD Universe:

(Note: I preordered a P4G limited edition from them last year and it got canceled due the fact that they never actually got them.)

This, especially with Amazon who always have customers with payment issues or last minute cancellations. I still can't do it with the $100+ price tag though. I'll stick with my BBY regular copy with free steelbook and $10RZ.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Any confirmation its a steelbook?

Every retailer now calls it a collectible case.

Also the spine of the case appears like a metalpak spine...

It certainly isn't a metal pak spine that's for sure and ..Yep it is indeed a collectible case, so? Everyone is just assuming its a metal pak for some reason. I know it's a steelbook, just wait till Friday and you'll see anyway. no problem, it's all good. haha.
