Great idea OP, thanks for the thread! I already pre-ordered the Zelda book a few weeks ago, but I'm eyeing that Final Fantasy set. I don't have any experience with that site though, anyone familiar?

Was looking around for some info on The Art of Portal 2. Order was cancelled earlier today by Amazon and I couldn't find anything on Dark Horse's site either. Disappointing.

Do we know who the publisher is/was for the Portal 2 art book? Perhaps we could try to contact them for any information.

Ah, I see that IronRinn beat me to it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. I'll try to find a way to contact them and will report back if I find out anything.

The Okami book's spine looks gorgeous.

There also might be a Dragon Age artbook via Dark Horse Comics? (I read an article on Kotaku, so don't blame me if the info is inaccurate! :D)

Has anyone seen any information regarding the Final Fantasy book? I was curious about it. I mean the price is high, but so is 800 pages. I was nto sure if anyone had seen any early reviews or had an opinion?

Noticed the Art of Dead Space when browsing Amazon. Hadn't seen that listed before. Interestingly, it comes out around the same time as DS3, but the brief summary doesn't specifically say it includes art from that game

That might still be an estimate from Amazon. Udon's website lists TBD.

True. The OP had January as the release date though, which I believe was one of Amazon's earlier estimates. I figured the new one is more realistic.

Here's another art book for the OP: The Art of Massive Black, Vol. 2. These guys do concept art for various game studios. Here's the amazon link. And here's a link to the publisher's website, which includes a full page by page preview of the book.

No, it wasn't delayed. I picked up a copy at Barnes and Noble on Tuesday. I plan to just return the Amazon copy back to B&N whenever it shows up (since Amazon is $10 cheaper).

Something interesting happened with my order. I've received two emails from Amazon refunding me money for the preorder price guarantee, however, the book hasn't even shipped. So apparently, Amazon CS is so friendly, they're now refunding money that they haven't even charged yet! :applause:

I picked this up from B&N last night, as well as the three new hardcover comics. Price was $19 in store since there are various coupons out there right now.

got my art of acIII book from amazon today. although the pages are bigger (larger book) alot of the images are smaller than they should be. i actually prefer the artbooks for ac1 and acII to this one (i have an official japanese acII artbook), probably because the art team changed for thie later games.
