Just hoping I actually got a steelbook left at customer service just waiting for pickup. Will check once KH3 comes out. Idk if they would still reserve it once the games picked up tho

I’ll actually pass on the steelbook. It’s nice to have it for free but not a big deal. It really just doesn’t look that good. Should’ve had Leon and/or Claire on it. If it was the lenticular cover, I’d be pissed if I didn’t get one


Do you want the thing or not, man?

Picked up my deluxe and steelbook today, stickers but no scratches or dents on the steelbook.

 

Was even more excited to see my Willow 30th anniversary Blu-ray was delivered 3 days early. Haven't seen that movie since I was a kid and it's one of my favorites.

This is NOT Resident Evil 2. It's Resident Evil 8 (7.5? 4.5?) with the story of Resident Evil 2. Not buying this crap.

very glad to see this game getting such positive reviews. i hope it sells well and Capcom decides to give RE3 the same treatment.

*vomits*

He thinks he's being edgy and that any of us give a shit about his anti-RE2 remake opinion in this thread 😂

How can it be one of your favorites if you haven't seen it since you were a kid?

Did they even add anything to the Willow 30th? I was ecstatic when they finally put it on BD years back but the special features were lacking.

I think it's probably the same release, replacing the OOP 25th anniversary one, which goes for way too much on eBay. I'll have to pick up the blu-ray this time around to replace my DVD copy.

 

Fun fact: I went to the same college and had a couple classes with the guy who played Willow's son.

Watched it a ton as a kid, didn't start collecting movies until recently and don't remember seeing it on cable. probably have seen it since I was younger just hard to remember things.

Does anybody know if the steelbook was limited to one per order? I ordered two copies of deluxe and only received one steelbook

If they were separate orders I think you would have got two, but I believe the system always limits an individual order to one free steelbook regardless of quantity ordered.

You're right.  It also limits pre-order DLC the same way.  Best way to avoid this is to make multiple orders so you get the free stuff with them.  Only issue is getting multiple packages separately, and of course running the risk of your games/steelbooks being packed poorly.

What's sad is I'm seeing people on mecari buy the steelbook alone for up to 30-45 dollars. If they knew that the steelbook is a fraction of that price on Best buy, or free if they pre-ordered re2 from bb I think. Dang scalpers

The outside art insert on the standard edition is fetching $80 on eBay. 

 

Customers who held on to their receipts are also flipping those on eBay for like $60, even if the receipt is just an email. 

 

Nuts.

My delayed steelbook finally just shipped. So happy Best Buy didn’t mess up their stock with online orders.

Wait, what? The outside art insert? Wouldn't any copy of RE2 non CE/Deluxe have that?

Even if you missed out, you could've still bought it on Amazon DE for roughly $18 shipped. I did that 2 days ago since I didn't order it from BB cause I got the CE instead.

Did instore for the Regular Edition and shipping for the Steelbook.  Steelbook came today and it's badly damaged (if I open it a couple more times it'll split in two).  I've contacted Best Buy but have little hope for a replacement.  I guess next time I'll do instore for the steelbook too (I figured they'd be a stock issue)
