Only gamestop pre-orders received the art book. I think the Japanese LE also came with this artbook. It seems that there wasn't enough art books to cover pre-orders, at least in the LA area.

That guide looks really nice! I went ahead and jumped on it. Their guide for MGS4 is freakin' gorgeous, so I could go in for another one like that.


Also, all the stores in the Portland, OR area seemed to get less than 1/4 as many artbooks as they needed, so a lot of us ended up missing out. :/

FuturePress > PiggyBack. Check out the Bayonetta or Vanquish guides. I have the MGR guide now and its not as technically detailed as a Futurepress guide would have been. Its still a great guide and if Futurepress couldn't do it then Piggyback would be my only other choice.

Looking at the CE Guide thread, most people prefer Piggyback to Futurepress. I have their Deus Ex, Dark Souls and Soucalibur V guide, while I have Piggyback's FFXIII, FFXIII-2, all the Assassin's Creed ones, and Uncharted 3 and I would would agree that Piggyback trumps Futurepress, in layout, art, and actual usefulness, generally.

Dammit. I totally forgot about the GameStop art book.

I call today wondering if they have any, and she claims they never received any. I can understand the shortages, but to not even receive any seems curious. I'm guessing others just snagged the few they did have and she didn't want to tell me the truth since I was one of two LE buyers. :(

If you were thinking of spending $25 on the art book on ebay you might as well just grab the hardcover guide from Amazon for $20...


Thanks for asking. I was looking for an excuse to open mine up.

The extra or artwork section just shows concept art of Raiden, Wolf and the main enemies. Along with developer comments on it. The artbook or leaflet thing from Gamestop is completely different.

Far from worth $25, but is okay.

And son of a bitch, my lithograph is # over 10,000.

Mine didn't get them in for over a day. If you call Gamestop's 800 number, they can help you out with any preorder bonus as long as you give them your receipt information. Physical goods take a while. Over a month normally. Codes are generally sent within a few hours though.

Yep. They ended up giving me a Bioshock button set instead as that's all they had left.

For me the CE guide was worth the $20. Also the art in the guide is different than the art book that you get as a preorder from gamestop.

BTW I'm not good at these types of games, but I am really enjoying the game.

My lamp from Gamestop doesn't do the lightning arcs automatically, I have to touch the top to start it. Would Gamestop do exchange or drag their feet?

If you do a defective return, you'd be put on a list for a replacement. Unless your store happened to have an extra one.

So just bring in the whole package to Gamestop I got it from and they give me a receipt or voucher for replacement?

Everything + receipt. Just remember seeing an email saying there's a list for replacing broken/defective lamps.

I'm a huge MGS fan and got the US CE... I LOVE IT. The Lamp is definitely an awesome collectible to have. I wish the steelbook was the size of a PS3 case though... It's the size of DVD/360 game cases. Otherwise, I'm completely satisfied. The CE strategy guide is pretty sweet too. Definitely worth $20!

I'm befuddled by the G1 size as well.

My twitter messages to them have gone predictably ignored so far.

Edit: these are both playstation 3 copies

Question:

I preordered the standard edition from Amazon and wasn't able to cancel the order due to problems with my account so it shipped and I received it on release day. I also preordered one from Gamestop for the artbook. I decided rather then dick around with returns I'd just sell my extra copy on ebay.

I was surprised to find out that the copy I purchased from Amazon weighs only 3.4oz while the one I picked up at Gamestop weighs 4.0oz.

I checked the barcodes and they are the same so it's not a dlc card of anything causing the weight difference.

The copy from Amazon has a sloppy shrinkwrap (not tight to the game case) but I've seen worse. This was a release day delivery so it wouldn't have been the return but the weight difference has me concerned that maybe one of the copies is missing a disc?

I can hear noise when I rattle it around but I can't tell if that is the disc or the paper inserts.

Can anyone explain why their is a weight difference?

Try weighing a PS3 disc from another game that's laying around and see if weighs .6 oz

A PS3/blu-ray disc does weigh .5 or .6oz so that is why I'm worried.

I actually forgot that I had two copies of MGR (PS3) that were shipped to me from Amazon and both weight significantly less (3.3oz and 3.4oz) then my copy from Gamestop (4.0oz).

What are the odds that there aren't discs in both Amazon copies?

Both the GS and AZ copies make similar noise when I shake them around... I'm trying my hardest to try and see through the case to see if I see a disc but I'm not having a luck

My sealed PS3 copy from BB weighs 3.4 ounces. When I shake it, it doesn't make that obvious disc rattling. The sound is very slight which is just the manual inserts rattling around.

So I'm not sure what's up with GS copies ::shrug::

Oh lord. I thought it was something wrong with my scale but I have calibrated it and each time the AZ copies are at 3.4/3.3oz like your BB copy but my gamestop one is at 4.0oz each and every time.

I had at first thought maybe GS had some sort of exclusive voucher but the barcode on all copies is the same.

Guess I'll just cross my fingers.
