Hey guys, just found a couple of cheap (Cheaper) limited edition hardcover guides on Amazon.


I know these threads seem to come every once in a while, but the last one was such a long time ago, it got buried too deep for me to find and add a new post. So I just started one. The last thread's guides are still cheap though, mainly Batman: Arkham Origins, Starcraft 2: HOTS, and Gears of War Judgement, but I didn't link them here. (Thanks for the awesome comments guys! I decided to link the other guides for those who missed it from before.)


GTA V ~ $5 FS (Now ~ $6)



CoD Ghosts ~ $4 FS (Holy Crap it's gotten even lower now, it's gonna be free soon!)



Duke Nukem Forever ~ $7 now ~ $13 FS



Batman Arkham Origins ~ $4 FS DEAD NOW ~ $26 -_-



Starcraft 2 HOTS ~ $10 FS



Gears of War Judgement ~ $7 now ~ $15 FS



Resident Evil 6 ~ $7 FS



Diablo 3 ~ $12



Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 ~ $12




Market Place Items ($4 Shipping/Less Availability/Not directly from Amazon)


Dead Rising 2 ~ $14 - $4 Shipping



Hitman Absolution ~ $9 - $4 Shipping



Homefront ~ $10 - $4 Shipping



Assassin's Creed 3 ~ $10 - $4 Shipping



Prince of Persia ~ $6 - $4 Shipping



Medal of Honor ~ $4 - $4 Shipping



Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 ~ $10 - $4 Shipping



*FS = Free Shipping either with Amazon Prime, or over $35 FSSS.


These prices have been dropping for a while now, I've been monitoring them for about 2 weeks, and both GTA V and Ghosts seem to drop at around a 20 cents a day rate. But I bit on them before they might run out of stock. (Now both have dropped $1 since I bought them, and at this point, CoD Ghost might drop to where they pay you to have it.)


If this thread is irrelevant, then just delete it and save me from the hate riot. Thanks.

(Second thread I've ever started in 2 years, yay!)

(As usual, this is a BlackRockWaifu thread... you know what that means!)

Good looking out.  None for me, but I still bought GTA.  Why?

Ouch, that GTA V guide price is just painful--I used a 50% off one guide coupon at Best Buy shortly after its release and still haven't really used it. :cry:

Picked up GTA V even though the reviews say it's riddled with errors and lacking anything above and beyond the basics. Still will look cool on a shelf for $5 :). Thanks for posting this.

Yeah... I got the GTA one at launch

. It was kindve disappointing
.. more of a picture book than guide.

It is a nice picture book though.

Thanks OP. The only one I'm missing the the Hitman guide. I don't see any in stock directly from Amazon. Did it sell out?

Saw i bought Batman last June and said "Doh". Then i saw it was only $6 then, so no biggie. Might grab the RE6 even though i pretty much stopped collecting guides.

That GTA V guide is really tempting me even though I traded the game off long ago.  Reviews seem mixed for it on Amazon though.

Not really sure it's good for an actual guide since I only buy these things to collect them but the GTA V one is really nice.

Thanks Op. Got CoD & GTA V guides even though I do not own either of the games, nor do I plan to.

Wow this is nuts lol, in three days of me posting this, the GTA V book jumped to being the #1 best seller in Video & Electronic Games. 


EDIT: Updated with a bunch of Marketplace items, all have $4 shipping but not directly from Amazon.

Yep, one wonders how low they might have gone if you hadn't posted. I didn't know about this thread until now - just decided that they were low enough that I wouldn't regret it much if I bought them and they dropped further, and figured it wouldn't be long before someone spoiled the fun.


Amazon pricing is a crapshoot, but might want to wait for the slope to flatten before posting.

Got my Batman Arkham Origins, and CoD Ghosts in today. Ghosts looks really nice and I didn't realize it came with two patches. Arkham Origins on the other hand has a dust cover which feels kind of flimsy and for whatever reason they didn't put the title on the spine so you can't tell what it is when its sitting on a shelf :P. That being said it was just over $4 so no biggy.

Snagged the RE 6, GTA V, and Batman AO guides. Did it just in time, too, because the Batman guide has jumped back up to $27.

Updated the thread with CoD: MW 3 and Diablo 3 guides, both sit at $12 but has been steadily decreasing, probably will go under $10 soon.


Also updated the other prices, Arkham Origins and Gears Judgement are pretty much dead, but the others, GTAV, CoD: Ghosts are still going strong. HOTS also seems to stay at a steady ~ $7.


Also, sorry if I "spoil" some of these deals for you, I know these things tend to go down in value when they aren't touched for a while, but it's only a matter of time till someone on SD or something posts it. I feel like it's probably better to alert this community first, even though we can't stop lurkers and the prices will be driven up, what's a community for if not for sharing ideas and helping others? So say what you want, but I rather benefit a few people that read this thread, than coop up these deals and save like a dollar or two at most. I don't mean to rant here, but technically we could do this for all deals, not reporting anything, and prices will probably drop even lower. Maybe the whole Best Buy Gift Card fiasco would've actually worked if the guy kept it to himself. But that's not the point of a community, and I rather every one prosper, and have a good time sharing our love for games together.
