It's nice for us but it's also kind of funny. Real CAGs know that if you patiently wait in the weeds you can get about 60% of these CEs at 20-40% cost of msrp.

The weird thing to me is how developers keep making these $200+ CEs. They obviously make enough money on release week purchases to warrant continuing future production.

The thing I'm waiting for next is the Infinite Warfare Legacy Pro edition to crash in price just so I can have the steelbook, and a complete edition of the game I guess. It's happened every other time, and the steels are quite nice! thing will be $40 eventually. http://www.gamestop....gamestop/130471

I have a feeling this Shadow of War Mithril Edition might actually have a pretty low print run. It's also exclusive to just 1 retailer over in Europe too (Amazon). Not to mention at that price point, usually they don't overproduce them. This CE is kinda reminding me of the Dark Souls III Prestige Edition for some reason.

Which was  $500 originally and got put to clearance at $199.

 

I think it was $500, I actually don't remember anymore.

The actual Prestige Edition was never released here, only in Europe. And it was actually priced at around $360 (after conversion) and sold out quickly. Then Bandai Namco got greedy and decided to release the statue only here for $400 without all the other stuff that was supposed to come with the Prestige Edition. Also don't let that $199 price fool you. In reality it was sold out at GameStop online long before price hit $199. For some reason they decided to place whatever few they had left on clearance in stores instead of just selling them online. They could've sold it all for alot more online. Heck they're going for $380 to $450 on Ebay.

Appreciate the information, I thought the prestige was just the statue but I see the other stuff included now that you pointed that out.

Tried to pre-order the PS4 edition at Gamestop and it said it is sold out. So I breathed a sigh of relief that I wasn't dropping that much money on this.

 

Then I saw your post and put in a PS4 pre-order. Damn it.

Best Buy isn't doing a midnight release for horizon are they? I couldn't find anything on their site.

Doubt it, they usually only do midnight releases now a days for console launches and things which are guaranteed to be big draws like Madden or Call of Duty.

Wow I figured there's always a chance this thing would have low print run but still expected to last a few weeks. Especially at the $300 price.

I'm not seeing any Shadow of War in my order history but I know I got to the page after checkout. I clicked the $5 shipping and my total was $325. Does it take Gamestop awhile to update the page? I pre-ordered hours ago. 

 

edit: Rip. Never clicked submit order.

Well, you beat me to it -- was going to say, assuming they don't cancel the PO's (sometimes they do that, but USUALLY are pretty good) that its a no-brainer unless you've got a ton of saved up GS credit.

I also locked in for XB1 - just in case. Plus, everyone will want the Xbox version once Scorpio comes out.

Gamestop must've did some last minute negotiations to get the exclusive.

Green and brown terrible Western games are still green and brown terrible Western games regardless if they are 16k@480

 

No guns and explosions or footballs so Xbox crowd will likely snub their noses. Doubly so if there isn't a versus only mode to facilitate ever important epeens.

Don't know if already mentioned but Axiom Verge is getting a Physical release for Vita, Ps4 and WiiU brings some goodies like soundtrack, a poster etc.

Looks like a really cool physical release tbh. Got it digital and not sure if I should double dip.

After tax and shipping that thing must be getting close to $400. For one CE that is freaking insane.

 

No interest, I'll hope that BB or Amazon has a steelbook version or something.
