I'm a little bit annoyed about the ZoE CE. $20 more for a soundtrack and artbook seems steep.

Seems like a pretty decent artbook though.

I've only seen the cover, but Amazon's description says it 100 pages long

That's not so bad then. ZoE art is awesome, and it doesn't look like we're getting a full artbook, like from Udon, so that makes this one even more appealing.

If it's anything like the artbook that was in the mgs hd collection le it will be worth the price alone.

What are the chances of ZoE's becoming as rare as MGS4's?

Hard to say how rare it will become but you can guarantee that it will be limited, especially the PS3 version.

MGSHD LE PS3 was pretty hard to find after the first week.

That ZOE LE is so bought! I can always return it to Amazon if it ends up not being as rare.

I have both games for the ps2. I dont think its worth it for me to get this but if youve never played them they are decent games. I liked the first one way more than the second but it ends so abruptly its maddening. Took me forever to find the 2nd one.

If rare means you can still find it years later for the msrp there is a pretty good chance.

I tried to order Resident Evil 6 collectors edition from amazon.fr but cannot for some reason I'm guessing it is too large/heavy. But I can order from amazon.it. Problem is the cost from the France site is about $50 cheaper that the Italy site. Any other users have success ordering from amazon.fr? In US btw

Amazon.de is your best option. Some of the different region amazon sites don't ship to the US. Even though its sold out, add it to notify you when it's available. How I got mine, was about 149 US dollars.

Anyone know if Amazon ships these LE packages decently? I want to preorder the ZOE one, but I'm debating about just doing so in stores at a Gamestop, but I also have Amazon credit to burn.

i usually get my LEs from amazon and they come in (IMO) better shape than what you would find in most retail stores.

Back in Novemeber, i ordered the MGSHD LE from amazon and it came in immaculate condition. shipped in a tight cardboard box

Amazon will more than likely ship it in a box with air sacs surrounding it so it should arrive perfectly fine.

It all depends on which warehouse it ships from. I know the Las Vegas warehouse always damages my CE stuff. My MGSHD LE was damaged twice by Amazon (big dents in the outer case that penetrated through to the cover of the artbook) and I finally had to scramble around town looking for one which I found at Gamestop. Basically, if it's something I know is gonna be hard to find after release, I order at the local GS now since at least I can inspect what I'm getting and react quickly to find a replacement if the copy they hold for me is damaged. Amazon doesn't do damage/return reserves, so if they sell out, you are screwed where with GS, if I get there early enough on release day, I can pick a different copy out.

I'm finding more and more that Amazon is damaging stuff even before it gets boxed and shipped. I have received many games recently that have machinery marks and punches, grease from conveyer belts, stuff broken inside, etc...even though they are shipped in cardboard boxes with air pillows. The last straw for me was when they shipped my SF 25th and Borderlands 2 Loot chest in one giant box with little padding that resulted in the metal tipped SF25th box puncturing the outer box of my Borderlands 2. Frankly, Amazon is not a good place to order anything that will be hard to find or valuable.

Thanks a lot buddy. I'll be sure to get notified from amazon.de Still waiting on my loot chest from amazon.it I hope it arrived complete. Have you had ordered in the past about amazon.de? are the extras in english

Apparently Metal Gear Rising Revengeance special/limited edition comes with a sword lamp http://www.destructo...on-235784.phtml looks pretty cool no news on pricing though, my guess 100-150 range

Just preordered the shit out of that ZoE LE. I was gonna import, but this was seems like a solid alternative. Thanks for the heads up!

Should I get PS3 or 360 for the ZoE games. I just want to make sure I'm getting the best looking version. I usually play games on the 360, but these games I've beaten, so I remember them not being too long, so the immersion and graphics are what I need to make me keep playing/play it all over again.

I doubt there will be any noticeable difference like with MGS HD. It really will come down to control preferences. Keep in mind, ZoE used pressure sensitivity so the mapping on the 360 controller will slightly differ from the original. Also, I don't know if 360 will have all the achievements as the PS3 trophies (I've heard the MGS HD 360 is missing some of the achievements).

If it's the LE you are looking at, I'm pretty sure the PS3 version will be rarer if that matters to you.

i seen that and would gladly pay up to 150 for it. looks pretty cool on par with loot chest, street fighter 25th anniversary, and resident evil 6 collectors are all same price or so.

Every part of my body hates Konami for shutting down Metal Gear Online and what they did to Raiden, but dammit, I might have to get that lamp.....

Well I'm torn. I love ZoE have both games still on PS2. And the HD Collection is only 2 games, not 3 (making it $20 a game and $20 artbook/soundtrack). I usually buy the HD Collections when they hit $10-$20 for best value per game (that I've already bought, played, beat), but that 100 page artbook is very tempting.

but its zone of the enders. you should be deciding how many to buy not whether or not you will buy it at all.
