I can confirm that the Shantytown DLC comes with the steelbook edition, if that hasn't been mentioned.

No ce at my Target.
I'd be more annoyed by the G1 case if I kept the games in them, but I usually print up custom art and put them in a standard case to keep the steel book from being damaged. I've got all my Tomb Raider games on the PS3,saw no reason to change that now.

No CEs at my Target either. 5 copies for each platform (4, considering that the display copies are damaged from those awful cases).

Got mine for 360 at 8:30 with no problem. Looks like they had about 3-5 of them. Waiting outside Best Buy for them to open now to pick up my CE and figuring out the best approach to recoup most of my money back on one of the game copies.

It's a beautiful case, but I'll take $20 from Best Buy over a case any day...

Funny story about that. When I was working last night, I decided to put a note on the steelbooks in the back, requesting that they not put them in those display cases. I explained that people are viewing this as something of a collector's item and might be upset when those copies end up dented.

Well it turns out that the person who put them out thought that my note was way out of line. How dare I tell them how to do their job! Apparently, it was an unreasonable request, and my note had a "rude, snarky tone". She didn't know which electronics team member wrote it, and she took it to our boss, who took it to his boss, who asked this morning's electronics guy if he knew who wrote it (and he told me all about it when I picked up my preorder).

So now I'm in hot water just because I asked them not to dent the steelbooks.

So if you preordered with that $1 dollar card, will they hold one for you?

Well done; I hope there isn't any serious trouble considering you were "only thinking of the customer." I used to buy a lot of games from the clearance bin, but these days they always seem to be the damaged display copies (which I refuse to buy; in fact, Tomb Raider is the first game I've purchased from Target in ages--and I only did so because of the steelbook). It still baffles my mind that a retail outfit would knowingly and deliberately damage its own merchandise. Of course, the corporate clowns who approved this idiotic design probably all received promotions.

I got mine about 8:10. Sounds like my store got 8 for each platform, and 1 was sold before me.

Seconded. It seems to be against corporate policy in a lot of retail stores to think about the customer and when an employee does they get in trouble. WTfuck.

Yeah, normally I just accept that many of our games get damaged, because there's very little I can do to stop it. I was just making this an exception since the steelbook is going to draw in collectors, who are exactly the kind of people who will get mad about it.

I've even gotten complaints from people that don't care about the condition of the case. They just want to play the game and they're worried the disc might be damaged.

I'm actually off until Friday, so I'd like to think it will blow over by then, but my team lead does already dislike me for other reasons. I'll let you know if I get written up.

Checked in at a target at opening in the San Fernando valley CA

And to my surprise this target only had 1 360 and ps3 copy.

The clerk asked 3 or 4 people and they said that was all they got.

Walked away with the 360 copy and wreck it Ralph

The girl who rang me up was happy cause I didn't take the ps3 copy

Looks awesome, glad I got there when I did. Happy hunting to everyone else.

That's interesting. Is the DPCI (DCPI?) the same?

Well one Target was all sold out of steel book copies. Only regular editions left. Time to try another I guess.

Got the steelbook version for PS3 in Elk Grove, CA. They had about 6 per platform.

Couple observations:
The case is beautiful
Copies include the multiplayer Shanty Town map
-my store also had 3 copies of God of War Collectors edition, but they would not sell them to me early
-last years The Show baseball is clearance 14.98 for PS3
-original FIFA for vita is now 8.98

Is that the number listed next to the item on the receipt? If so, it's 207240633.

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.


ehh my store still had tons of tomb raider preorder cards. I was considering trying to buy one but it wasn't worth the hassle for $4

The local Target had about a dozen of each - some on an end cap and some in with the 360/PS3 games. I didn't buy one, but it didn't look like they were moving very quickly.

I myself got the Target version this morning and will be picking up a BBY copy for the Comic + $20 RZ bonus. Will either sell the BBY copy minus the comic on CL or just trade it back to BBY once the TIV is up. Don't want to look like a douche returning a copy to Target that might cause problems.
