So is this an instance of a company buying/importing a crap load and reselling or did EA making a version for the UK?

Dude its the internet. Move on, I mean who cares really?


To answer your question, Obviously I care enough to post about it. I had information in the post that could be helpful to people asking questions regarding DLC content hence it makes no sense why the post was deleted.

I believe the deleted post complainer stated that all first runs of the DS3 would come with the same DLC that was in the dev edition. So if you buy the Add on kit and find the game with a discount($20 preorder bonus cert or w/e), you're getting the same deal

I am the complainer about my post being deleted and that's correct. I answered a number of questions scattered throughout this thread.

The DLC that you get when buying the game with the DEV kit is the same DLC being sold from normal retailers (Best Buy, etc.) I did some research and checked on the retailers website and can confirm it's the same content.

In a nutshell, that's the post that was deleted which I think is very helpful to people who are considering buying the DEV kit with the game.

And since this site is called Cheap ass gamers that posts video game deals I made the point in saying, preorder the game at best buy, get the 20 dollar giftcard, which would be a better deal than buying it with the Dev kit.

Done deal.

Mods, please delete this post in t-minus 10 seconds.

Are there just not very many Dead Space fans or what? It seems like this stuff is selling so slowly.

On the EA page they specifically say 5,000 total. Why would EA even allow another company to buy enough stock to sell and make profits on. How much would a company like ForbiddenPlanet buy to make it worth their time to resell (500 copies?). Their a big enough company that they got allotted some Zelda Historia Collector's Editions.

After looking at some of their other products, their basically selling every product on the EA Dead Space page so I'm guessing their acting as a middle man for EA to get some of their products to the Euro audience. Sad that's it's selling so slowly that EA needs help moving them.

How do you know they didn't contract with EA before the item went on sale on ea.com?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Help me on this, how does it feel to be this much of a drama queen? Just curious.

Your reply probably got deleted cause it was in between a big mess of people bitching. It happens on the internet, get use to it.

Treehouse(gear.ea.com) and Forbidden Planet have wholesale contracts with EA. FP's alotment is part of the 5k not an additional amount over 5k. I have solid sources, but would rather keep them private.

It was my understanding that Treehouse didn't just have a contract with EA they were owned and a part of EA and they exclusively sell EA merchandise (i.e. Mass Effect, Alice, Dead Space, KOA, etc.).

Hmm good deal. PLayed both on Xbox, I assume PC would be a superior experience. Might give it a try.

The only thing that worries me is that EA all of sudden put a 10 quantity cap on the Dev Only edition.

Before we could check exactly how many were left and how well they were selling.

Now with the 10 cap we have no idea how many are really left or if EA is pulling our chain.

Does it really matter since they are individually numbered? Then again, 400 people could have number 5000 and nobody would know. Hmmm.

Semantics, but yes, you are correct. I was giving the simple version for those playing at home.

lol, been on my mind too, but it looks so cheap I think there's more toxic stuff in it than BPA.

Dam was about to finally about to bite on getting it but I really just only wanted the marker statue. Its just as well I did not since I already have Bioshock Infinite Ultimate Songbird Edition and Metal Gear Rising: Revenegeance LE both preordered.
