The LE that is selling for $15 does NOT have a Best Buy Exclusive sticker on it.
It's the LE that was available at all retailers at launch, it also does not have a slip cover on it, just a holographic game label

And the SKUs are different

That's probably the online listing for their exclusive LE. But it pretty much looks like that in the picture. As long as their no slip cover and BB sticker like Wolfman said it'll ring up $14.99

The Tomb DLC code expires on 8/21/13. You have to enter it at the website, then they will post your Xbox Live redemption code. Remember to enter the dash, or it won't work!


Thanks for posting this! Also, there was a pair of what I thought were zeroes (00) in my code, but when I tried to redeem the code on darksiders.com/tomb it said it was invalid. I changed them to the letter O (OO) and the code worked. :) So, if someone tries their code and it doesn't work, try replacing any zeroes you are using with O's.

I went ahead and redeemed the code for Argul's Tomb and the Crucible Pass, better to do it now while I'm thinking about it, I figured. I loved the first Darksiders, so I'm honestly pretty psyched about getting the second game at such a low price.

Also, mine was not the "Best Buy LE" (which I've never seen, I guess if my store had any they only received a few) but the "regular LE".

lol. that's what the one i found looks like, but it had the BBY sticker and rang up as 50. i'm just trying to get a picture so i can call other stores tomorrow and describe it to them before i waste more time driving around the country trying to find it. i guess i could ask them to ring it up for me.

does the DLC on it even matter? does it add to the story? add achievements?

you might as well save your money on gas. Unless you can get a manager to override the $50 price. You will not be getting it for the $14.99

Damn you are lucky. My store has been cleaned out of Kid Icarus and Darksiders 2 for both systems since yesterday at noon. THats because they had tons of each when I went on Wednesday for some trade ins. Never had a problem getting a deal but I think this time a hoarder beat me to them. Luckily I picked up DS2 on bestbuy.com but Icarus was already sold out.

THANK YOU! I just got done inputting my code, and it was giving me an error. This was the problem.

It doesn't add achievements, none of the DLC does (which the cheapass achievement hunter in me is happy about). Story I can't say. I wonder if the ones at my local store were "hidden" too, because they didn't have them when I went on my lunch break yesterday, but it said it was available for pickup right away at the store when I ordered it online (though with free shipping, I figured I'd save myself a trip).

uhh...aren't people saying that there are 2 LEs and only the BBY LE rings up for 50 while the other one rings up as 15?

Seriously people! Why the same questions over and over again?
Here is the answer to the two questions that keep getting asked:

1- If you want to get the game for $15 you have to get the Vanilla version or the LE that DOES NOT have "BESTBUY Exclusive" On it.
2- The developer and publisher went out of business. You may find this cheaper down the road, but it's unlikely and the game may even go out of print and become scarce.

Now ask some new questions.

^good post, so here it is again:


1- If you want to get the game for $15 you have to get the Vanilla version or the LE that DOES NOT have "BESTBUY Exclusive" On it.
2- The developer and publisher went out of business. You may find this cheaper down the road, but it's unlikely and the game may even go out of print and become scarce.


Mathematically Correct.

Use factual statements, logical deductions, mathematical calculations and objective analysis; not rage.

unfortunately, we are on "cheapass" gamer. Alot of ppl still think it would drop lower than $15, before bestbuy is sold out. This just confirmed my fear http://www.ebay.com/...=item4ac17f1316.

Got the 360 LE (regular, not BB) and PS3 Vanilla for $15 each. Great deal for this game.

I don't even own the first one yet (been waiting for it to come back in stock for $5 used at BB, don't think it's ever going to happen though), but I went ahead and order one. You guys scared me into buying it with the whole 'once they're gone, there're gone' thing.

im playing darksiders 2 and omg its like a badass version of zelda with elements of prince of persia, Fuck this game is awsome !!!!!!! how could nobody be interested in picking up vigil studios ? they are talented game designers and know how to make a game without technical problems. i wish sony or ubisoft would gather up the vigil studio emplyees and take them in. such talent shouldnt be wasted

Adding this to my watch list so I can see the outcome. 66 x 15 = $990.
The tax, fees and shipping may take some fees from him, but I'm sure he earned some nice reward points as well.
