Is there anyone that happens to not want their MKX import CE for the ps4? I've been checking for a good 2 months on Amazon with no luck

I cancelled my U.S. amazon pre-order once a CAG informed me of Amazon DE having it for about $118 shipped.  I'm getting the coarse at BBY, so the import is just for the goodies incase the game/dlc doesn't work in the U.S.   As of yesterday they were still instock but the price has creeped up a little.  Still cheaper than the crazy $180 U.S. price.   For the life of me I do not know why their foreign version is much cheaper considering its the same contents and being shipped across the world.

I just cringed at the fact that major nelson will soil a CE with his signature rather than having projekt red do it.

The console version of ESO Imperial Edition is the same as the PC version released last year with just a different outer sleeve correct?

Have these Xbox One CE exclusives (cloth map, card decks) always been advertised?  

 

I placed my PO so long ago at BB that I don't remember there being any difference at the time. 

 

It pisses me off that now for the same price, one CE comes with more items, and I could have PO'ed that one had I known.

Ya I could give a rats ass about the statue but the art book and poster sold me

If you're into Elder Scrolls art and lore, I'd recommend getting The Heroes Guide to the Elder Scrolls Online. It's a Bethesda Store exclusive. It might be sold out by now, but it was originally $100. I think I paid ~$50 around Black Friday. Well worth it.

Is there any currency exchange fees?

Not when they first became available but around Gamescom in August it became known.

This also proves the BB Steelbook is the same artwork as the one in the CE.

I hope it's better than the Augmented Edition for Human Revolution. That wasn't a very good "CE".

1) That's some massive bullshit about the Xbone exclusives.

2) The BB steelbook doesn't have the same back art.

yeah, the back art of the bb steelbook is a skull, instead of that girl. even the front art is different, he is riding a horse on the bb steelbook. the CE steelbook shows him fighting in the grassfield. the statue looks like a pos tho

One could argue that the BBY steelbook is superior. :-

Actually, I'm even more confused. I thought the CE came with the Triss/Yennifer steelbook. What comes with what? The video shows the Ciri steelbook.

Lol wtf, exclusive CE items? I have both preordered on Amazon but PS4 is my main console.

Might just cancel both now and hope the game fails for making stupid choices like this again

The guy in the vid thinks the statue is nice, it certainly doesn't look like it to me.

 

Any statue experts care to chime in? Would have definitely kept my preorder if it were $100, but $150...

I'm really considering canceling mine too. I only have the PS4 ordered, cause I don't even plan on getting an Xbone. I didn't know the CE had different contents til today. The Best Buy listings for the two mentions no differences, even. The Amazon listing shows the difference in the picture, but mentions nowhere else.

Don't have the 100$+ to have pending for the next couple days. Plus I'm still stuck with an order at the SE store.

Nelson even says the status is "polystone".  There is no way that a videogame CE statue is polystone.  I'll believe that when I see it.  Really, I can't think of a statue included with a video game CE that was high quality.  Some are better than others, but none are comparable to something you'd get outside of a videogame CE.  You aren't going to get something "worth" much.  The price difference between the normal game and the CE is $90.  Given that there's a soundtrack, a large art book, and a few other things included, you're basically paying for what you get when it comes to the "statue".

 

That outer box is just begging to be destroyed during shipping.

I feel like Geralt's legs are in very unnatural positions. From some angles, it looks like more of a centaur/griffin hybrid than a man on top of a griffin.
