Perhaps I misread the ad someone posted then, as I assumed it was $10 off 25 rather than it already included the price. Regardless, Amazon has the better deal now that BF3 comes with $20 back. Also, I noticed they're offering 5% off their guides if you purchase it with the game now. Is that new?

That does seem new, and it's 5% off the game price it looks like. So usually it's a savings of $3. Better to look at it as getting $3 off the price of the guide I guess.

Will it really bring it down to $15? I was under the impression that it would take $10 off the MSRP and thus be $25


^ thats the way i read the BB ad. not 25 then 10 off, but 25 after ten off

Amazon emailed me about canceling my order for the Saints Row: The Third CE guide, due to "a lack of availability from our suppliers".

The item is still listed on Amazon, though the only seller is a third-party seller that supposedly has the guide in-stock, for $139.96 :shock: .

No sign of it on BN.com, though the regular guide is still listed on Amazon and BN.com.

They did the same thing with the Lost Planet 2 CE guide right before release, so I guess Prima didn't get enough pre-orders to justify printing the CE guide, or THQ decided to can it.

Was digging into what the UC3 guide would be like; seems like PB has the page up for it if anyone was interested in sample pages, layout, etc...

http://www.piggyback...php?id_guide=57

"CE Guide only available at launch." Not really sure if that means anything, and even then I'm still pretty hesitant to pick up a guide for a shooter.

PB just makes such good guides. Wish they had done Dark Souls.

Do you think UC3 guide is worth it? Is $19 a steal at amazon or should I wait for it to go lower?

The MW3 guide says paperback in the title of the page but in the description it says hardback. It is hardback correct?

Did anyone notice a "lump" on the cover of Dark Soul's hardcover guide? What the hell is that? My copy from Amazon is in perfect condition, no dins on the corners, but there's a lumpy pop up around the middle...

Personally, I think PiggyBack guides are really good quality and content from all the ones I've had.

Also, I couldn't find what the CE guide provided over the regular besides a hardcover but found the following on the GS product page

-Includes code for EXCLUSIVE Multiplayer Emblem!
-16 exclusive pages of art not available in the standard edition guide.
-Exclusive audio CD from the Uncharted 3 game soundtrack.


EDIT: Doh! That info is in the OP.

Check the order online (see the Invoice link), if the price is adjusted, then you're fine. If not, cancel and reorder...

Mine shipped at the $18.99 price, so we'll have to see if I get grief from them about the $0.19 back after shipment and before the PPG is done with after tomorrow.

The UC2 guide is okay. The CE-exclusive content is just renders of all the major characters in the game with a bio. I wouldn't particularly say the extra cash is worth it unless you love hardcovers.

Most of the book is dedicated to multiplayer and analysis of weapons and what not. The SP/treasure sections aren't lacking, but yeah even after looking through it I'm not sure "shooters" really need guides to begin with. Great job by Piggyback; again, it's just the game choice in this case.

Price down to $17.99 now.

And that's the price that anyone who pre-ordered it should get it for.

If anyone doesn't get an email from Amazon by Friday showing the pre-order savings, they should email Amazon to get back the difference between what you paid (likely to be $18.80 - $18.99) and the $17.99 final price.

Pre-order price guarantee covers it to 11:59PM on release date, so it's valid here.

FYI, someone reported yesterday that you can get the Skyrim CE in your quick picks and I can confirm that today. Saves you an extra $1.18, so worth the effort!

Will it show up even if you already ordered one? I could use the extra savings.

It might not matter, though; for some reason, I can't get my Quick Picks to appear on the "Today's Deals" page...:bomb:

No, you would need to cancel your order and check your recommendations first to see if it's there before loading your gold box page for the day. After canceling, it can take 5-10 minutes for the system to recognize you canceled as well. I used my order for Dark Souls guide to get it in my recommendations FYI.

I know I'll be buying my Skyrim guide at GS and later 'returning' it late because of this. Getting real old having everything ship late.

So, the Fallout: New Vegas "Complete" Edition game has been announced; what are the odds of a "Complete" Edition guide? I'm thinking 25% chance, given how quickly the vanilla edition game dropped (and how many New Vegas CE guides weren't sold, from what I could see).

Similarly, what are the odds of a Skyrim GOTY guide/game in the future? I still think this is a big possibility, given how much hype/anticipation there is, but I guess it depends on how much DLC there's going to be.

Well, that was shockingly easy.

Yesterday, I cancelled my Skyrim CE guide preorder, spent the better part of 2 hours trimming my Recommendations for books (removing all of the philosophy books that were there because of buying my brother's college textbooks helped quite a bit, and yes, I "fixed it" by checking "Don't use for recommendations" for each book :roll:), noticed that the guide was sitting pretty near the top of the list, decided to check my Quick Picks the next day, and lo and behold--the Skyrim CE guide was available for $22.34.

Thanks for the advice, Jodou; because of this, I cancelled my preorder for the ME3 CE guide in the hopes that if the price drops further closer to its release date, I can snag it for a dollar or more cheaper through Quick Picks. ;)

NP mate. Would you guys find it helpful if I cross-referenced my thread with this to alert you when a book is eligible for quick picks? To date, ME3 has been spotted once so it should show up tomorrow if you rate your purchase of the Skyrim guide. Make sure it's in your recommendations first though!
