Looks like they marked the Epic edition (the one with the statue) down to the preowned price at Gamestop, $12.99.  Prob. YMMV since the stores prob mostly gut them, but my local store had 2 and I got one and the clerk she got the other one.  Apologize if old.

 

I apparently can't figure out how to paste a pic on this new board, haven't done it in a while...

Thanks OP. Bout time. Finally after 2 fricking years. Price isn't YMMV. SKU had been deleted from the system. Online stock checker isn't working neither.

I bought it at $55 like two years ago from Best Buy. Not sure why you'd kick yourself, it's pretty YMMV, plus you run the risk of getting a beat up, neglected looking box. Needless to say, I'd take that for $12.99 as well. ;)

This.

 

As far as I know you can no longer track them unless you simply call and ask.

Found two while travelling in the Bronx for $12.99. They are at a used price and if you have a Pro card its only $11 and some change. Thanks for the great find OP!!

I never see any old CE's at gamestop, let alone converted-to-used ones.

 

For what it's worth, Kmart has this on clearance at $30. I saw one this weekend in fact.

Stopped by a store that had one but the employee checked the system said it was probably still the new price (which was marked at 119). Would he need to actually scan it to see if its marked down?

Yes, he would, and it should scan at the 12.99 used price.

Yes. It has been $49.99 for a long time.

I guess you are right. I really thought this would sell out at $49.99 when I bought it, but as some CAGs reported, that is not the case.

 

And for those who don't know, the tracker is useless now, just drive out for the hunt.

It's a huge ass box, probably $30+ to ship via priority, just FYI.

Probably a really long shot but there is a kmart on my way home and a GS not far from my house, gonna hit up both.

 

Sidenote: is there not an in-store tracker for kmart? Didnt see one on the page for the epic edition, still listed 149 online.




Seriously,  Fuck you, Sega.

i know the local gamestop used to have about 4 of these when they had all the collector's editions stacked on the floor. since they put them up on the wall above the games i dont remember seeing them, so im assuming they gutted them because they were too big to fit on those shelves.

Can't believe I missed this Post yesterday. There is a Gamestop next to me that always had 2 of them. Went ahead today to see if they were still there but no go. Got replaced and I reckoned the Employees got them. :lol: Oh well. That's what I get for sleeping in.

Just called my gamestop.

 

Me: "do ya'll have any Gear of War 3 Epic Editions, Used?"

 

Them:"we dont differentiate between collectors and regular"

"we do have a bunch of gears of war 3 used tho"

So how should I go about picking this up? Just go, grab it and tell them to ring it up?

Tried this with the uncharted 3 special edition back in the day and they wouldn't sell it to me, so I'm just kind if wondering.

If you're fortunate enough to find one on the shelf, that would be the way to go.

 

However, if you're planning on making appearances at your local stores in the hopes they have one, you should call ahead because chances are it's gone.

I was given several odd responses by several employees as well. 

  

One store I called, one employee stated that he's pretty sure he has one in the back, confirming that it was the one with the statue, and said he'd double check. After putting me on hold for approximately 10 seconds, another employee picked up and said that they haven't had them for over a year because it was a limited edition item.

 

I told him that another employee was checking in the back for me and he said "There's nothing to check, I'm telling you that I know we don't have it because like I said, it was limited. Plus, even if we did, we would have tossed out any extras long ago since we treat all used collector edition games the same as the standard game."

 

The way the situation played out, made his answer seem suspicious.
