I bought 3 from them, because I wanted them shipped in a box. Well, they shipped them in a box and all three were damaged in transit. Returning them is a fucking pain in the ass, so I am SOL. Damage isn't HORRIBLE but still I am pissed they all arrived that way.


I'm still waiting on mine to show up. Maybe I'll be lucky, i would expect it to show up some time next week. I chose standard shipping.

Love steelbooks and try to get them when available. Bought one for Prey a while ago. Price matched South Park Fractured But Whole Gold Edition a while ago and the steelbook had a small dent, otherwise was perfect.

 

Holding out for a huge price drop on Fallout 76 as it comes with a steelbook.

I think I prefer the Walmart steelbook. Does Walmart still price match in store?

I love steelbooks...just not for mediocre games. Only those deserving of a steelbook get one!

I must be lucky, RE2 steelbook from Amazon.de showed up today and it's in perfect condition. Standard cardboard mailer. I ordered Jan 25, so just over 2 weeks to arrive.

Some are separate when they're advertised as a bonus.  Mario Kart 8 was a separate bonus also.  On the opposite side, the PS4 release of Valkyria Chronicles came in the steelbook.

Yeah, my BF5 came with the normal copy and the Steelbook as a separate item. I almost didn't get it because they didn't automatically give it to me either.

Prey? Where.

Like how does Best Buy sell  these things?

Probably extreme YMMV, but i actually found an RE2 steelbook at local best buy for $10. Just one copy in the ps4 section.
