one of the "far" Best Buys (have to get someone to drive, takes about 30 minutes) had at least 8 on the metal shelves where a bunch of crap gaming stuff is.

Do you know if these showed up with the Check Stores link on the website?

For those who have not been able to pick it up, Meijer is currently showing it in stock ($39.99) at http://www.meijer.co...1&cmpid=goobase. You can use the Promo Code SHIPSFREE for free ground shipping. I've never dealt with Meijer before, so I am not sure of their online stocking reliability.

I cannot thank you enough for posting that link. If this order comes in, I am officially forgetting about Jesus Christ and will only go to the Church of Sharpeone.

And if you order the CD you can even rub your balls on it!

At least some good news, I just received a shipping notice from Meijer that the guide has shipped. Good thing, because I had no luck at Wal-Mart today.

Hope you guys were able to get it ordered as it is now out of stock.

Just thought i'd throw this into the mix, its not collectors guide but im sure some can cope with the 650 page standard guide for 11$ http://www.amazon.co..._cp_ob__title_1


Lame, I ordered that Guide on Nov 17th for $16.90. It shipped this morning at that price. I sent in a complaint to Amazon, and they basically said that when it shipped, that was the best price available. Luckily, I got a screen cap of the $11.90 price, because it has gone away now.

I ordered from Books a Million for $23 right before someone else suggested it in this thread. So I assume I was at the front of the pack when the orders rushed in. I figured it would be cx'd---and it just was. Oh, well. Grabbed the last copy from Best Buy last week. Full price hurts. lol

Though it is a modest savings, you can save some money at BestBuy.com if you order it with a cheap game, like the Warcraft 14-day trial for $1.99. That is what I did last week before all the Best Buys near me sold out.

Received my Barnes & Noble order today. Immaculate condition and damn, this thing is hefty. Glad I ordered when I did, only cost me $26.xx total.

Meijer dropped the ball. Advertised it as "IN STOCK" and today I got a Backorder Notice email.
Assholes.

Still no clue how to get this book now. I think I'm just gonna give up all hope of paying anywhere close to retail for it.


EDIT: Order is outright cancelled now. No Backorder. I can't stand it when a site will outright lie and claim an item is in stock and then cancel your order days later. Pricks.

prima/random house has not reprinted, and appears not to have any plans to reprint the ce guide. They are content to reprint the softcover, which I believe is in a 3rd printing now.
A shame that people that really want the guide will have to pay a reseller premium. Too bad Future Press didn't handle this one.

Can someone change the title reflect that it's out of stock. Everytime I see this thread I think it might be back in stock.

I would buy the hardcover. If there is only paperback I will just keep with the digital copy. Crazy that they won't sell it.

Wanted the CE, but got the regular for 12 bucks so I really can't complain.

There was a seller on Amazon that had it listed for $40, so I ordered it only to have it canceled later on. I emailed saying there were 4 left in stock when I ordered so please send me one of those. He said they sold out. THE NEXT DAY the same seller has them listed again at $100. There anyway to leave feedback for that?

I used BB in store pickup for mine. So glad they had it.

you should be able to leave feedback on cancelled orders, would be available in your order history. Also, report the seller to amazon at this link:

Yes, you should be able to so on cancelled orders. Do that please! I hate those sellers cancel on you because they feel like they're under selling, pricks!

As to back orders getting cancelled, freaking hate that too, but there's nothing you can do really. Sometimes you get apology coupons if you're lucky...

Why? So that it wouldn't be limited? That's supposed to be the point of a CE/LE/SE. There's only so many, so the people who value them get them. Simple economics. Now, you, and possibly some other people, may have had extenuating circumstances, and if so, it's a shame. But the fact remains that it would take all of the specialty of this edition if they simple printed more.

Thanks. Found it and left proper feedback. Sent an email to Amazon too.
