Anyone think this will be rare in 6 months?

very possible. although it's nearly IMpossible to tell so early on, the hype due to the initial operation rainfall coverage, and the fact that very few stores received many copies, means that it could sell out and be difficult to find very soon. at the very least, i doubt reprints will be collectors editions and all, so in that regard the initial prints will probably be worth something.

I scooped one up at bestbuy I thought it was both but just the art book. I found a guy on Ebay selling the soundtrack for 8.98 shipped. I figure with the price of gas and searching this was the way to go.
He has 8 left

I wonder what else I could order from Newegg to ensure I get a box.

Looking at the newegg it looks like the cd is wrapped on the outside. Can someone confirm?

My newegg order came in perfect condition despite being in a bubble mailer. Soundrtrack was on top of the box, but was factory sealed with it

This turned out to be a nice package. With the $10 off discount that most of us got on Newegg this turned out to be a good deal.

Same here. Mine came in a bubble mailer and everything looked fine.

Got mine from GS last Friday and the clerk didn't want to give me a CD. But he did mention to try to come back this week to pick one up for free if the pre-order guys didn't pick the game up. Is the CD worth it?

To those of you whose boxes were damaged and are exchanging them, how much damage was done to the box. Mine was also shipped in a bubble mailer :headache: and there's some minor damage to the edges, but I don't know if it's enough to warrant an exchange?

Mine came in today (bubble mailer as well), and was pretty much perfect condition. Only thing it had was a small rip up at the top on the page part of the box (nothing visible on the front, back or spine), so no big deal to me. You have to just look at it and think if it is worth all the hassle of getting a new one shipped out. Also, consider would the next one get more damage on it then the one you currently have.

So I saved $10, got the CD, got the artbook, and game. I'm content with that.

I ordered 2 when it there was a $10 off code (was oos when the $12 code was around). everything was sent in a box (likely as I ordered 2) with foam peanuts (haven't seen these in a while as Newegg usually uses a lot of brown paper as padding).

one copy has a dent. the top part of the LE slipcover (on top looking down if the box were standing) is squished so that it is no longer nice and flat. this

so only Amazon and Newegg got the CD WITH the LE Box and Gamestop has the CD for preorders only?

Has anyone seen a non LE anywhere? I'm gonna pick up at Best Buy for a play copy. It should be the LE (probably no CD) as that's all I saw when I was at store last week.

I ordered 2 copies from Newegg as well, and mine came in a small box packed with peanuts. Both copies are mint.

I also picked up a play copy from Best Buy and can confirm there is no CD but the packaging and everything else is the same.

I couldn't tell when I was at the store last week as the games were in those plastic containers, but was the LE box sealed?

what i found in my searching last weekend at 5 different stores:

-Gamestop and Best Buy are the only physical places I found it.
-Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us aren't selling it in-store (on Saturday all were sold out online. havent checked since.)

-Gamestop has CD's behind the counter if you're lucky. Best Buy had no CD's (and their plastic security cases dented the top of the box).

-2 of the 3 Gamestops I called were sold out because of low shipment.

Yeah. Even though my copy from Newegg wasn't damaged, I would recommend getting the game elsewhere if you have a choice.

I was about to ask about this. So did BB just not get any CDs? I got a copy from GS and one from BB and didn't get a CD from BB =( I was pretty irritated at that

For what it's worth, I just received my copy from Newegg 15 minutes ago, and it's in perfect condition. It *was* sent in a bubble mailer, however, so I'm probably just one of the lucky ones.


Mine was like this as well. It's still shitty that they send all games the way they do.

I got mine from newegg on friday... came in a bubble mailer and crushed. :( Lesson learned, no more CE's from newegg.


Amazon did the same to me with mine, which I got on Friday. The damage was minimal for me, fortunately.

I ordered a few days ago and got the game in today. I ordered two copies so Newegg would ship in a box and my games arrived mint. So that plan worked. They are indeed the copies with the cd on the front of the box sealed inside the plastic wrap.

Yeah, I should do that from now one. Newegg's CE shipping is absolute crap. Mine came in a bubble mailer and in horrid condition.

after speaking with a csr and going through the claim process...they are sending me another one free of charge

can't say i can complain! they arent even asking for the damaged one back

and another thing, the csr told me this process would take 7-10 days....everything was settled in about a day and a half.
