Making this game $4 and change after using the Lionheart Tactics coupon. Thanks, OP!

 

Well if there's any LE copies left around me I would grab one for $4.

Got the limited edition like others. I was surprised it was still sealed. first time I went to pick something NEW up and didn't get some gutted crap where the employee tries to explain how it's new because it hasn't been played.

Looks like I'll be returning my current copy to get one at the new price, good thing it's still sealed.

When it was $20, I checked around local GameStops, and they were all gutted, so I didn't bother checking again when it hit $15. I almost bought it from GameStop.com when it was $15, but I didn't have enough filler to get free shipping. Just ordered now from Amazon for $10.

Haha, I was just thinking I paid $10 for the extras without the game. We both could've waited, huh?

Walmart online TIV is 7.5x, with the lionheart coupon, they are paying me to keep the extras.

Just came back from my GameStop. Was looking for the PS3 version but couldn't find it, asked the cashier if he had any new copies left and pulled out a sealed 360 copy, which I happily took. Can't beat $5 for this game, especially since it's an LE. Also, the cashier told me to come back in and buy another used game under $20 to get another game for free. Saw this on my receipt for Ground Zeroes, so I will check back next week to see if I can get something with both receipts.

Local Gamestop actually opened the outer box to put a sticker on the inner box, then resealed it with a low quality circular sticker and sold it as new. I will keep it since it was only $5, but damn if this didn't remind again why I hate Gamestop with a passion.

:o "killer is dad".. somebody needs to make that a game. It'll be about a detective chasing a killer who apparently is his dad.. and it reveals corruption and all kinds of stuff. I would buy that. But as far as killer is dead is concerned.. no. Never. $10? PSH. Don't make me shart.

Killer is Dad sounds like an Octodad spinoff.

Gotta say thanks OP.  Originally bought the game for $12.99 from Gamefly hoping it came with all the extra stuff, but it didn't.  (Makes sense now since I see how heavy the LE is).  Was able to pick up a copy of the new LE version from Gamestop for $5+ tax and locked in the trade of the one I currently own at Amazon for $5 as well.  Except for gas, basically a free upgrade.  

 

And I'm impressed with the LE, they did a decent job on it.

So is amazon selling the LE? A pic seems to indicate it comes with the graphic novel?

Thanks OP, grabbed a sealed 360 LE for 5 bucks after the Kongregate coupon.

 

Wish I didn't buy it from Gamefly for 12.99 a few months back, I still haven't played it.  :(  Oh well.

 

Hey Terra Vista Gamestop employee who was talking about trading your copy of Majora's Mask to some kid for Conker-- if you're a CAG and you see this, let's hang out bro. lol

 

I was the dude who came in about an hour ago and was helped out by your purple-clad colleague (who I'm assuming is not a CAG).

wait, im confused. So is the one on gamestops website the LE, or has it been reissued without all of the LE stuff. It doesnt look like my local gamestop has any new copies at all. I really want the LE though

It's all one SKU I believe as it's just one of those first run things and stores just got a mix of both.

As far as any of us know, there was never a non-LE version.

That's what I was led to believe too.  With Amazon price matching this, it made more sense to go that route instead of paying sales tax at GameStop (plus no waste of time/fuel running to and from).

if you can get a $5 kongregate coupon (see other thread: http://www.cheapassg...actics-for-free ) it stacks with this so makes sense to go in store and pick it up for just $5, otherwise yeah amazon is good too.

 

also pc got this game on steam recently, it hasn't really gone on sale yet but I'm sure in the winter sales it'll be $5

I'm not a drinker.  I've never seen a non-LE "in the wild" as other CAGs are wont to say, but it doesn't mean they don't exist.  I'll have to do a bit more research.  Do you know the different SKU numbers by chance?

"Hey, are you a CAG?"

"What?"

"Cheap Ass Gamer. It's a website for game deals."

"...No."

"Never mind."

^^ I wanted to avoid one of these awkward exchanges, or I would've said something to him directly.

EDIT: To clarify, he mentioned he had just set aside a copy of Killer is Dead for himself, which is what made me suspect he might be a CAG. I guess without that little bit of info this is an even more awkward story.

All of the GS stores around here were about 50/50 on day 1 based on what they had behind the counters.  Have no idea on SKUs.

I appreciate the quick response.  Option A is make the dreaded trip to GameStop to visually verify it's the LE; Option B is order from Amazon and cross fingers.  I don't like to rely on luck, it's definitely worth the time and effort to get the LE contents for same price, so I'll probably go the Option A route.

I wouldn't expect it from Amazon as it was a first run thing.  It shows the picture of the LE for the second image on Amazon but if you read the description you'll see "Launch copies also include:- 80 page hardcover art book- Soundtrack CD containing 25 songs- The ‘Smooth Operator’ DLC pack- Additional "Episode 51" with the vampiric Sebastian".
