Glad I got my copies from Best Buy when they became available.

I think Gamestop is the last remaining retailer that hasn't listed restocks for this (until now of course). All other retailers had these up and sold out the last 2 weeks.

New PSP 3000 systems were available today on the site before noon. Of course I missed it.

Best Buy had a restock on this? I've been waiting for it to become available again so I can use my GCU discount. Is there a way to set an availability alert?

Ugh idk if I want to pay $100 plus 12.50 for shipping on gamestop or just wait and hope BB gets more again if people cancel. GCU plus $10 credit is what I wanted.

Pretty sure you don't get $10 credit for the collector's edition.  Just the regular edition.  That's how they've always done it in the past anyway.

I didn't know they carried them anymore. The PSP I had died last year or so, and I've been looking to replace it. Thanks for the heads up.

If we're talking about Best Buy, the $10 rewards credit shows up on the collector's edition page.

Why would GS sell a CE-exclusive item stand-alone?  Has that ever happened with any CE?  Let alone for $5.

It's a collectors item meant for serious MG fans. The fact that you have to ask these questions means that you probably don't care enough about this series to warrant getting one of these anyways, but it is a big deal to hardcore Metal Gear fans. But just to answer your question, aside from the arm, it also comes with steelbook (which lots of CAGs here also appreciates), making of bluray, map, and some in game content. It's not really bad at all for $100 if your a serious MGS fan. Plus this is Kojimas final game and very possibly the final MGS main title.

No I definitely like metal gear. I already pre-ordered the day one edition, but I wasn't sure about what's special about the collector's edition. Is it possible that BB will have the limited edition open again? or is it over?

It's definitely possible for them to have it again. Some people who preordered will cancel and some people will get theirs canceled due to payment issues.

Collectors editions are always included in the $10 promotion.

Just myself I've gotten the $10 for the CE of mkx, watch dogs, Destiny, South Park ($20), gta v, and Im sure more but can't think of them, I just know I never have an issue.

These probably won't be that rare and most likely amazon will have them up after release. By the way, does gamestop charge tax online even if you use trade credit?

you think so about amazon? how do you know... did that happen before with other games

 

also, are the bonus DLC's that comes with CE on the disk itself, or maybe I can purchase them later separately?

Most CE's this day are overproduced, or at least they used to be.  I don't see it happen a whole lot anymore but the most recent was the MKX CE which is readily available everywhere at a little over half the MSRP.

comparing metal gear to MKCE is not really a great comparsion past MKCEs also struggled to sell or like your assumption they may have been overproduced. CE's like fallout and metal gear have a solid history of being popular and being sold out quickly shortly after release.

Actually, it seems to be the opposite. Beginning this year, CE seems to be more and more rare, with MK X CE or Arkham Knight CE being more of an exception nowadays. Seems like CEs are not as available these days after launch compared to even just last year. Look at Fallout 4 Pipboy Edition, COD Juggernog Edition, Witcher 3 CE, Majoras Mask CE, or even Elder Scrolls online (only a few here or there after release). These are all barely available or not at all after release and certainly won't make it to clearance status like all CEs before it. Part of the reason I think is because retailers no longer want them in stores sitting there taking up valuable shelf space. They rather sell 90% to 100% of all allottment in preorder phase.
