Just got another order confirmation from TRU. The Order Status says "Item(s) located in stock." Shipping estimate says I'll have it by 4/24-4/27.

just wanna point out the us version has a weird fog/scratchy/mist on the plastic in front of the wolf head on the box, while the uk version does not. my guess is its supposed to make it look like the wolf is breathing, but i could be wrong.

The Premium PC edition I have went through a "rare" phase before seeing a reprint and ultimately a 30 dollar reduction. While this could end up being hard to find in the long run, It seems like many limited first run CE's get either reprints or reshipments. That said, it usually means that the stock is ultimately low and it goes up in value over the next few months. ME3, Skyrim Guide, and couple of others come to mind as items with an immediate sellout but reprint with a more gradual increase.

Since I have zero knowledge in this arena...when do you think is the best time to resell?

Was wondering about this. Got my shipment from Amazon today and it just looked really off. Wish they had protected it better though. The corners on one side are crunched, I'm guessing because the delivery service kept putting the long box upright instead of keeping it on its side. If they had just put air packets on both sides instead of one, everything probably would have turned out fine.

Even with a box, another Amazon CE arrives damaged :-?
Starting to think I'll stop ordering collector stuff from them altogether

yeah, my last couple ce's from amazon were damaged during shipment so i didn't wanna risk it with this one. plus, best buy preorder bonus was a tshirt, which trumps amazon's digital comic for me. best buy has been perfect for me and ce's, as any ce that i've ordered from them online they just ship in the distributors packaging, never laying a finger on the actual item and keeping the condition nice since it needs to be that way when it first hits store shelves. in this case i preordered in store and it was near perfect since they basically took it out of the shipping box and set it aside for me to pick up. sorry it didnt work out for u.

Yeah, I hate buying CEs online most of the time because they come crushed. The last 3 Collectors Editions I ordered two of because I became OCD about it and didn't want them shipped in a bubble mailer. Mass Effect 3, Forza 4, and Max Payne 3 ( not out and too big for a bubble mailer). But luckily Mass Effect 3 and Forza 4 CE went for some decent money when they came out. Max Payne 3 I don't care as long as I can get my money back for the 2nd one.

^ That's actually how Amazon shipped mine as well, was in the distributors original box that was cut to fit the game perfectly, and then wrapped in a larger box. Very well done.

Well I don't usually flip unless by accident in which I ordered 2 and forgot return one. I only look at CE in CAG to get a better idea if MSRP really is the "deal". If there's a good indication the title is limited then holding on a while is great. On the other hand, if it has critical acclaim, it may get an HD remake which can hurt the value some. Games like ICO to a drop when the HD version came out. Also, if you keep an item sealed and in good condition the value holds MUCH better as they become rarer as time goes by.

Thanks for the input, I should keep it nice and sealed, if I get an XBOX I'm going to crack the sucker open and play it.

If anyone in the MA area is still looking for a Dark Edition, I just saw one out on the floor of the Best Buy in Marlborough, MA. It was on the one of those tables in between isles. It was pretty jacked up by the spider wrap though...

so to anyone who got the game mine was shrink wrapped not in the traditional plastic y fold wrap. I was just wondering if this was the normal case also did anyone of you guys did not get the stickers?

Mine were shrink wrapped without the y seal as well, but I've never seen a tradition y seal on larger CE's. As for stickers i'm not sure as I haven't opened it.
