Great new thread!

 

FYI, your Best Buy and EB Games links under Titan Quest go the The Alliance Alive.  I think right now Titan Quest is only available to preorder at Amazon.

 

Also, there is a Best Buy link for The 25th Ward CE though looks like its OOS (was in stock now says coming soon):

Fixed. 

 

Thanks for all the feedback. I'll be scouring the interwebs looking for more things to add and I'll be updating more frequently.

All these interesting CE's and yet none that I want. Guess it's not a bad place to be eh?

Should be a lot cleaner w/o any 2017 stuff. Wasn't fast enough to post everything in succession. This will be the official one for next year. 

Looks good. Thanks for all the hard work.. I know it isn't easy.



First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Can't wait to see which of these I'll be picking up for 1/3rd of the price a year after release!

 

Excellent work on the thread as usual. At least most of us know how much work it takes keeping this updated and appreciate your effort.

FYI: 

The 25th Ward: The Silver Case Limited Edition - Playstation 4 - $39.99 ($31.99 with GCU)
 

https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6130013

It is now orderable.  OP might want to update the original post when he has a chance.  Also, it is $50 cheaper than what was listed.  Not sure if this is a pricing error.

Also will they really not bring Secret of Mana CE to the US :(?

 

Outlook isn't good considering you can only get the regular copy through GameStop but I'm still holding out hope.

For those of you with a Target RedCard, you can get the Uncharted 4 CE for ~$50. 

https://www.target.c...24#lnk=sametab 

 

It's on clearance for $60, and Target is running 20% off clearance items if you have a RedCard and then you'll get another 5% RedCard discount on top of it.

As much as I want to import a JP edition, this is nice for the Americas...

So far only seeing it on the Atlas website, but it mentions all pre-orders being upgraded.

Nice, I want that metal case.  I don't see a link to best buy yet for it on the page - only Amazon, Newegg and GS.  I'd rather not risk it getting crushed from Amazon, hopefully best buy ends up getting it too.

Best Buy's link (though not able to be ordered yet, likely soon):

$39.99 after GCU for this will be pretty sweet.

BB link shows the picture of the SE so it's definitely coming. Just waiting to be able to pre-order now. Glad this got a remaster because I never got around to getting my elf to 99 last time around and was having a lot of fun with it, just too many games came out heh.

Thanks for the link. This is how all games should be made:  steel/metal case with something extra thrown in for a reasonable price.

It's a remaster with a new soundtrack.  The economics of doing something like this where you are reusing the basic IP are far different than building a game from scratch.  As such, you could argue that this is actually overpriced and the metal case is just a cheap means of convincing people they are getting a bargain.

Well, I meant that actual new games released for $59.99 could also include a steel case and something small for the same price instead of costing $20 or $30 more for the "Deluxe" Edition. A soundtrack or some cool cards like in this one are a nice touch. I am not saying don't have the $100+ Limited / Collector Editions, but maybe add something every once in awhile to the standard games to show the fans some love so they don't have to spend $100 to get some swag.

They often do though? More often in Europe, but Persona 5 Steelbook edition? FFXII? Yakuza Kimwami? First print editions of Atlus games?

Well I dont care for Persona or Yakuza games, and Final Fantasy 12 is another remaster. But you're right on the Atlas games, so point taken.

So what do you guys think was the WORST CE of 2017?

I dont mean if you include quality of the game, I meant worst overall value. I would imagine their were quite a few that were just too expensive with odd/lackluster inclusions to justify the purchase.

I personally think the Injustice 2 Infinity Eggs edition was the biggest letdown.

Sweet, thanks for the link. I was on the fence about getting it day one, but with the extras + 40 bucks after gcu, I'm definitely grabbing it day one now.  That and the fact it works with the ps3 version.  I can give my old copy to a friend to play together :)

____________________________________________________________________

DragonballZ FighterZ went OOS in Bandai & Namco's store. Monster Hunter World looks to be OOS everywhere now. Dissidia NT CE went OOS in Gamestop, not sure if that's a sign to come for Square's site. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet CE (with artbook & map) only seeing it In Stock at Gamestop's IT site. Sword Art Online: Limited Edition means there's a 3rd SAO CE and its exclusive to Japan. The 25th Ward limited edition bundle is Coming Soon atm on Best Buy, price has been adjusted down to $39.99. Ni no Kuni II: Prince Edition has been readded to the steelbook page. I deleted it for some reason prior. *Amazon's listing of Dragon's Crown Pro lists "Battle Hardened Edition" in the description but not in the title. I assume its not going to be the standard edition when pre-ordered. Best Buy & Gamestop also only have one listing for the game. 

 

That's all. Will check back in a few days.

That listing on Best Buy and Amazon is not the bundle. Those listing are only for 25th Ward CE. The bundle includes both 25th Ward CE and Silver Case CE. 

 

I can't find the links on NIS America now, but they had two separate listings. One was for 25th Ward CE, for $40 the other was for the bundle for $90.

 

I ordered the bundle directly from NIS and a second 25th Ward CE from Amazon when it was first listed at 29.99. When I try clicking on the product from the Amazon orders page I get the same "product not found" webpage that the link here in the thread gives.

Ooh. The titles make it so confusing then. I'll try to fix it. I've got the same order on Amazon for that price, hope they keep it.

I found the link to the bundle listing on NIS. I agree this is a very confusing listing due to the title of the game.

Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite is the one with the infinity eggs, not Injustice 2.

For me it would probably be the Lord of the Rings $300 one. For Honor and Ghost Recon ones come close too.
