I've never had a steelbook case, but this one looks pretty good. Might have to get my first one

people like to buy steelbooks because it is 100% guaranteed they won't be reprinted.

I kind of like the European steelbook better....but this one *might* be easier to get (although it's G1). Decisions, decisions.

wait wait wait
is the ps3 version in a g1 case?
...even though the game is in the case?

edit: wtf
might grab a 360 version for a collectible to keep wrapped
square enix games have been dropping like a rock
i guess i'll just wait

edit:
i'm kind of disgusted that the best ps3 steelbooks i've gotten are for the call of duties
really thought metal gear rising and this would help change that
i bet they save like 3-4 cents each manufacturing one size

Not really true. EU got a bunch of reprints, BBY gets a bunch of reprints, etc.

I don't consider myself a steelbook collector, cause I almost never buy something just for the steelbook. I buy the steelbook version if there is one. But I like them just cause the artwork is usually nicer, and covers a larger area, and often continues front to spine to back.

We're talking video games here not blu's. Please reference one video game that came in a steelbook that was reprinted (game and steelbook).

I think I'll just grab the 360 version at Target. I prefer the PS3 but that G1 case will irritate my OCD to no end.

Sucks the PC version doesn't have a physical copy... but I can't complain, $33 + a $5 gift card from Amazon, I am sure I could buy the case for the difference if I really wanted.

I don't know if this is new information, but I just checked Target's website and they are calling this simple steelcased release as the "Tomb Raider: The Final Hours Edition"

Kinda hope it has the same OR some of the goodies (DLCs) as the one in the "TR Comparison Thread"

That is very strange given that the "Final Hours Edition" is supposed to be an Amazon.com exclusive and appears to be titled "Final Hours Edition" because it includes "The Final Hours of Tomb Raider" digital copy for the Kindle Fire.

It should be, last time I preordered 2 Pokemon games and I was able to use the 1st GC for the 2nd copy right away.

Shit. I didn't know there was a pre-order bonus from Target! I'm guessing buying it tomorrow won't come with the $5, eh?

All their pre-orders (well, at least the ones they have cards for) come with a $5 gift card, but they remove the cards a week before release.

So, it's confirmed right? G1 case for both PS3 and Xbox?

I just asked him to join our site here so you guys can ask him your questions. I believe he did say they were only G1 though.

There goes the confirmation sort of... It's G1... So, no thanks!

Great idea. $19.99 - $7 coupon - $5 gift card = $7.99 \\:D/

Scott (as in Tissues/Toilet Paper) has a $7 off coupon available. They've apparently taken over providing the coupons for upcoming Disney Blu-ray releases.

Ugh - Gonna hit Target first to see if DPCI is the same. Gonna ask for regular and steel book to look up DPCI's.

Buddy of mine still works at the target that I use to work at and he said they only got 6 of each. I have a bad feeling this one may be hard to get around here.

Well, if my store is any indication, we're only getting steelbooks for day 1. There were no standard copies. Also, if you click through to the item details on that weekly ad, it just takes you to the page for the regular version.

I did a search in our PDA system, and there are no other versions listed. When the regular version comes in, it's going to be the same DPCI.

Goddamn that's a lot of shit to go through to get coupons but I did it. $18 plus tax after my 2 $25 birthday gift cards for TR and Wreck It Ralph is nice .

Definitely going to my local Target first thing in the morning. Buddy of mine said the steel cases will be first come first serve. Glad I cancelled my Gamestop pre-order for this case

Just picked up a copy and my Target only had 5 SB's each for the 360 and PS3. They also stated that more than likely they will not get any more of the SB's after the initial shipment, of couse take that for what its worth...

I just picked up a copy of Tomb Raider. As previously discussed in this thread, the Steelbook is G1. My target had a total of six copies (3 Xbox, 3 PS3). If you plan on getting one, I strongly suggest to get it asap.

In a off the beaten path Target (Culpeper VA) got 9 in for each system. As of 833 I was the 3rd person who got one for the :360: again if you are wanting one go early otherwise you might be short.
