I went in to Gamestop this morning to pick up GOW3 ultimate for $24.99 and the girl behind the counter told me that they also dropped the collector editions for Batman. She claimed that they sold out of the PS3 version but she still had a few of the Xbox 360 versions. The price rings up as $24.99 but if you have a edge card, the price is $22.49. This was in Pearland, Texas btw but I imagine the price drop should be universal.

Edge or Powerup doesn't work on new items, only used. Not sure how you would have gotten that to work here.

That's because they are now officially considered used. That's what I gathered from the previous thread.

This is correct. They now list it as being used in the system even though it is still brand new.

if you don't want the batarang, is there anything in this CE worthwhile?

Since they're now classified as used, the extras aren't usually retained and are tossed in the trash.

You may want to double-check with the store to see if they actually have the game + extras on-hand before trekking out to a store to pick it up.

From what I read so far, nope... even the leather bound journal is lame...

Ah, that makes sense, if they've converted them to used in the system. Didn't think of that.

The journal is at least interesting to flip through, even if it's not the best thing in the world. I believe it comes with some exclusive DLC, too, doesn't it?

I believe that both versions did, though the PS3 additionally had the Joker-specific missions that I think are still PS3-only.

Yeah not a very great CE. It definitely sounds cool tho.

The Crime Alley map should come with it. It was a CE exclusive map. You can purchase it now for 240 pts on XBL. It too isnt very good and is very similar to Intensive Treatment. I would buy the Scarecrow level instead, which was a Gamestop preorder bonus.

The game is worth the 23 tho. Its cheaper than the vanilla and the GOTY is used for 360 for $25.

So the only exclusive map is the Crime Alley one? Is it worth it to buy that just for the map and then trade in the rest?

Does anyone have a Locate In-Store link for this (PS3 preferred)? I'm not finding it on their site any more.

I've ordered strategy guides online and my power up rewards card has took money off before.

The guy at my local Gamestop (Mt. View, CA) said that the item is out of the system because it isn't in stock at any store. He wasn't able to look it up and told me that it wasn't worth calling another store... but I still will for $24.99

EDIT: Called 2nd GameStop, same story...

Just to ask again, did anybody come up with a 360 or PS3 stock locator link/sku?

Excuse my ignorance but should the sku be on my receipt? I have the box and receipt in front of me now.

Yea, I think you want the one directly from the box though (that will be the CE SKU, versus the one on the recipt which will be for a regular copy of AA)

That looks more like a UPC (bar code).

The sku would be on the White or yellow gamestop price sticker/tag. usually 5 or 6 digits.

There is no more CE SKU. Once they transfer them from CE New>Regular Game Used the CE SKU disappears from the system. That's what I've been told by numerous stores.
