Dig down into the description of the item, and it says it includes the GeOW3 beta, plus all of the other "Epic Edition" items.

The pic isn't of the "Epic Edition", so it might be a crapshoot of which version you get.


Yes, but there is mention of upgrade to the "Epic" or "Limited" editions only if you preorder before 2/22/11:

Bulletstorm - Epic Edition


Pre-order Bulletstorm before February 22, 2011 and recieve an automatic upgrade to Bulletstorm - Epic Edition, which includes:

  • Guaranteed early access to the public beta for Gears of War 3 - the spectacular conclusion to one of the most memorable and celebrated sagas in video games
  • Peace Maker Carbine, boots and armor
  • 25,000 experience points to use right off the bat
  • Visual upgrades for the iconic leash

It says that, but orders placed after release have also come as limited editions. I ordered mine on the 24th and I received the limited edition with the beta.

Amazingly fast drop. Can't in my heart of hearts not expect this is swan dive by summer, esp once the Gears beta piece happens

I thought this had one of the best SP campaigns in a long time. I personally liked it better than GoW 1 and 2, CoD MW 2 and BO and for me it was on par with Reach. The story was original, the gameplay never got stale (him, played-out pop n shoot gameplay or something original?), and it was just the right length. It was also fun going back and playing Echoes.

Great game at full price at definitely around $40. I too will probably trade it in though as there's not much left and I don't care about MP. The only thing that the disc gets you is EARLY access to the beta, if you have GoW3 reserved you get access anyway.

What confuses me is (and I'll ask when I trade it in unless somebody else already knows) that at GS you get $5 towards a reservation of GoW3 w/purchase of Bulletstorm. So technically you should have two beta keys anyway...

I will be keeping it to complete the achievements added when the DLC comes out.

The PC retail version is $39.95 also. I am thinking about picking it up because it comes with Gear of War PC.

to bad you have to have the disc to access the gears beta a week early


Not really, played through it then got my money back and when beta drops i'll hit up Family Video or Blockbuster if they haven't folded for a weeks rental. ;) Game rental is cheaper than the code will sell for.

From what I've read, no. It is a GFWL game and apparently has problems due to that . . . I'll pass on the PC retail version for that reason.

Damn... that was fast...

It's probably not the Epic Edition but even still, $20 off this fast is ridiculous.

Thought the demo for this sucked. The idea was good, but poorly done. It got pretty repetitive quickly and the level designs and textures were sub-par.

That's an insane price for a newly released game that has gotten positive reviews. I personally didn't care for the demo so I think I'll pass until it hits $20

I'd be all over this if I didn't already get it and KZ3 for $40 each price matching the TRU giftcard deal.

This just confirms for me that the $20 credit Amazon throws out with pre-orders isn't worth it - not without some pre-order-only special items or downloads attached. Wait a few weeks and the price will be the 'cash equivalent over time', but better because you're spending less up front for the same thing.

I played the demo and didn't really get that asskicking after asskicking impression that all the other promotional media seemed to imply. It felt clunky and cluttered. I am still tempted though, because I know I would enjoy it to some degree, and I do want in the GoW3 beta.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Wow, already, seriously? -_-
I could have easily wait two weeks for this and used a $20 credit and it would have been $19.99. Oh well I guess.

How many fanboys does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

10, 1 to do it & 9 to complain how much better the 1st one was.

The demo was surprisingly poor, although it did show the basic gameplay elements. The actually game works a bit better with the story dialogue breaking up some of the shooting, but I did find myself thinking this is in no way a $60 game, given how short the single player is (although even as short as it was, near the end I was getting a bit bored of it)...but there were some well done set pieces and it is certainly pretty looking...But given I got from amazon for $59 with a $20 credit and locked in a trade at amazon at $40, I'm happy with the 2 days of gameplay I got out it.

When exactly did people lock this in at $40? When it first came out I noticed it was only 10 or 11, and then now it was coming up at $32 but when you added it in it was only $27. Still more than GS since they're 50% thing is supposed to be over but still.
