Meh.... comes with a few cool items i guess but it just doesnt have the branding behind it to really sell. I'm guessing the price on this will tank well under the retail $150 for awhile before eventually becoming collectible. I wouldn't buy this looking for a good return unless i was willing to sit on it for at least a decade probably more like 2.

The included movie seems to be getting decent reviews, but I think it is also coming out on Blu-Ray which is a deal killer for this set, since it seems to pack a standard DVD.

Also I want the PC version which seems to be coming out a week or two later...

I just hate that wording "Ultra Limited Edition"....*shivers*. It doesn't instill much confidence, as it has to be "ultra" and "limited"
at the same time.

They just as easily could have called it "Definitive", though I don't think they have much confidence that it is.

I agree with the DVD pack-in, i'll get the Blu-Ray "if any" myself. Not sure I even want this game yet, though it does look decent and funky/spooky from the vids.

They are touting "limited ammo" as the games tactic to keep the frights up, but Bioshock did that as well and there was tons of ammo in it and so far i've seen the guy blasting the hell outta everything with tons of guns.

You should probably check out the discussion over the last two weeks at Cheapassgamer.com. Several people pre-ordered and then cancelled when the lame packaging was revealed. Almost everything in the set is available separately at retail so unless you collect lithographs or generic looking boxes, you probably should save your money, limited or not.

There is nothing in the extra content that screams 100 bucks actually 160.44 for me at checkout. Don't they know that this is a recession. Maybe 250 print run but 1000 and the fact that you can still preorder speaks volumes. Turd alert.

Provided it's in some kind of limited edition packaging that makes it clear that it's not just a bunch of parts being sold as a bundle, and if there are truly only 1000 of these packages made... these things ALWAYS appreciate in value, despite what anyone else in this thread thinks.

Now if it's one of those Disgaea 3 deals where all you're getting are a bunch of parts compiled into one shipment as opposed to a single limited edition package... well then it's only worth the sum of it's parts.

Don't compare the HALO 3 helmet edition to something that's only had 1000 made. I saw 1000 HALO 3 helmet editions in a single store, I think :)

Ok, but if you spend some time on the page and look at the box, it couldn't be more generic. It literally doesn't even have the name of the game or the console it's for on the box, just a generic version of the cover art. In my opinion, it's just like those Rosenqueen bundles which are also usually limited to a thousand or maybe 2,500 in some cases. It's just a bundle of junk packed in a generic box. Just because something is limited doesn't mean it will become more valuable or in demand, especially when it's already $170 with shipping and tax here in California.

The way I see it is that it doesn't have the brand recognition to comand $150. Although it does have a lot of extras--NO game is ever worth $150 upon initial release, atleast not until 2012 when it becomes the norm due to inflation. My advice would be to wait on this to drop in price just like every single other limited edition drops in price. Next year you'll be able to pick this up for $50-70 still sealed.

A TRULY limited edition like this of a meager 1000 copies ISN'T going to drop in price. There will be 1000 people who buy it, and they won't give it up, and then 1000 more people will want it and will pay more for it later. Eventually, a mere 10,000 people will want it. Please trust me on this. I don't care if you buy it or not, but the history of economics of truly limited editions simply proves this is "worth it".

I don't think this is just gonna be a box full of items. And yes, just about everything but the lithograph will be available elsewhere. So what? It's an official release of a game that may really take off, limited to 1000 pieces, and comes in a special box. And it's Survival Horror no less!

It's the Ultra-Limited-Oh-My-God-This-Game-Went-Sooooo-Far-Over-Budget Edition.

Specially priced to get an extra $150,000 from your fans. Not to mention, a quick way to get a thousand extra names and addresses to sell to direct marketers under the "Ultra loyal with disposable income" flag. I'd read EA's privacy policy closely before ordering.

Sure it is. Look at the picture. It's the regular retail version of the game with a second box containing a DVD you can buy on Amazon, an art book you can get for free elsewhere with a preorder or $5 at Best Buy if you prefer, a patch valued at maybe 50 cents, a graphic novel which will be available at comic stores and a lithograph, the quality of which and potential availability outside of the set is unknown. This thing has been on sale for a week and a half now and hasn't sold out, despite being front page news on all the major video game sites. I predict it won't maintain its value because frankly, most of us who buy limited editions don't consider this to be one and I guarantee each of the component parts will be sold much cheaper once this game has been out for a few months. It's just a box of crap that comes with the game that they are bundling together for too much money. It's not individually numbered and there's just nothing exclusive enough about it to drive sales. If there were an action figure or a different version of the 360 cover art that really was exclusive to this edition, it might be a different story. As it stands now, there is not.

As I said earlier, Rosenqueen does this all the time. Putting a bunch of stuff in a box does not a limited edition make.

I agree that it probably won't drop in the long run because of the meager supply, but whether or not 10,000 people will want it is another story.

People will try to flip them for a while after they're released. If it does have potential for appreciation, that won't happen until most of the copies are out of the hands of flippers/dealers and in the hands of collectors. Also, demand will largely depend on how good this game ends up being, and whether or not it's the start of a new franchise. The horizon looks good on both those counts, but we don't know for sure.

How about the Robotech Battlecry Collector's Edition? And that's a far better set then what is being offered here.

"The package will include the game, a soundtrack featuring rerecorded music from the cartoon, a T-shirt with Skull One artwork, five cards featuring preproduction artwork, a lenticular motion card, and individually numbered dog tags"

And it only retailed for $65. They were only sold at electronics boutique, but were eventually clearanced out for $15.

Even the 2nd aniversary white xboxes from japan have steadily gone down in price, and they were each individually numbered xxx/1000.

This "deal" is anything but guaranteed to go up in value.

yeah, I can't see this being worth the cansh either, especially since nobody knows if the games is even any good. Now, if they knocked the production run down to 500, and included something trully limited, like exclusive levels or weapons to this verion that would never be released via DLC, then it would probably be worth the extra cash and a good investment because then it trully would bec ome something that wouldn't be available anywhere else excepth through this version.

Otherwise, this just seems like a collection of readily available stuff all packaged together for one inflated price. Sure there may be "only 1000" of these bungles put together, but it doesn't seem like any part of said bundle will be limited in anyway, maybe the bonus DVD, litho and patch will be exclusive to this version, but that still doesn't justify the extra money.

well I thought about it and I think I'm going to buy this. Every game variation I've seen with only a production run of 1000 copies (not including rosenqueen deals and such) seem to be worth it. Even the rosenqueen deals can be worth it. If you buy it and play the game and realize you don't like it, I don't see any reason you wouldn't be able to seel it unsealed for pretty close to what you had already paid. It is true that a good amount of limited game sets don't really appreciate in value, but how often are they actually truely limited by that much? I know Metal Gear Solid 3: SLE had well over 1000 copies and that has been selling 2-3x its original retail price for almost as long as its been released. You were able to actually walk into the store and still find them on the shelf for a while. I think Joe is right on the money and I am kinda suprised nobody wants to jump on this, considering its probably the rarest game or game variation we've seen in this generation of gaming. 1000 is a very low number and it could only take a few months for collectors to decide they want it or wish they had it after its been sold out, especially if they look it up on ebay and see how much it has gone up from its original price, that alone could drive more people to want it because they are seeing how much it has appreciated in value.

EDIT: also when I go checkout, the page freezes and I have to go to the task manager to close the window. WTF!

I would strongly disagree with your argument. My biggest issue with this release is that it's not really a rare game nor is it an integrated package, but really a pile of whatever EA could find that they were otherwise selling to put into these generic boxes they had printed. It's very similar to all the "limited edition" comic related collectibles that come out in runs of a thousand or so copies and never sell out or hold their value. If you compare this to MGS LE or Bioshock, both of those games had system specific outer boxes with unique art, as well as premiums that were both in demand and exclusive to the packages they came with. For Bioshock, it was a figure you couldn't get elsewhere. For MGS LE it was a third DVD you couldn't get elsewhere. This game doesn't have something on that level and yet it's priced at 3X what a typical game goes for once you add tax and shipping.

Expensive limited quantity games rarely hold their value. For example, look at the last five Neo Geo US home cart releases. It took Neo Geo.com almost five years to sell out and they still haven't on some titles. The prices keep going down and those were produced in a run of 500 or less each. Similarly, look at Steel Battalion for the Xbox. That was very limited and hasn't held it's value either. In fact, you can get a complete package for about half the new price now.

If you are a fan of this particular game or just really planned on buying everything it comes with anyway, then go ahead and buy it. However, thinking that it will only go up in value and trying to encourage others of the same thing is not appropriate or reasonable.

OK, I hate to continue our discussion of this both here and at CAG, but I think this statement right here gets at the heart of what you're arguing.

1)By the logic you've been using, you shouldn't consider the Bioshock LE OR MGS3 LE to be LEs. Both are the EXACT SAME situation as this Dead Space bundle, you have a LE outer box containing a normal retail copy of the game and other bonuses you can't get elsewhere.

2)Yes, the LE box on EAs site looks bland, but it is by no means finalized, and by the time it's released, I wouldn't be shocked if there were numbered and/or it said "X-BOX 360 DEAD SPACE LE" on the front of it, which would qualify it as a LE by your logic.


I think your hate of the price point here is blinding you when it comes to recognizing this as a LE.

Umm, no. The Bioshock LE gamecase has completely different artwork than the standard retail version, and it says LE right on it it. I remember people complaining because it was so bland compared to the standard version. Also, the bonus DVD comes packaged in the game case as a multi-disc case, not in a seperate case or worse yet paper sleeve. It's not just the standard version thrown into an after market box like the case here.

the MGS3:SLE was the standard version thrown into an after market box also. I'm not so sure if the game case inside of the box will have an affect on value or anything like that.

either way I ordered one just for the hell of it so looks like I got one commin' in the mail in a week or so. If I don't like it then I'll just play it then sell it. If I lose out on a few bucks, oh well, shit happens.

I think your hate of the price point here is blinding you when it comes to recognizing this as a LE.

I will partially concede the first point to you on MGS, but the fact that it had a custom box which made it clear that it was a limited collector's edition and a PS2 game makes a lot of difference in my book. It was also an integrated set meaning that the box explains what was included and it was specifically designed to hold the game as well as the bonus discs. Also, none of the bonus content was available elsewhere for purchase.

On the second point, my understanding is that the box pictured is exactly what they are packing everything in. If someone receives their copy and it's different, I will be happy to admit that I was wrong.

Finally, I could really care less about the price point. If this set was $100, I still wouldn't buy it for the reasons I articulated earlier. I have a pretty large monthly budget for game collecting and frankly, if they had done this thing the right way and put some thought into it, they could have had my $170 with no questions asked. By the right way, I mean designing a custom box and game insert signifying that it's an Xbox 360 limited edition and including a bunch of items that can't be purchased elsewhere. A patch and a lithograph just aren't enough to make this a collector's edition. As it stands now, I will be content to sit back and watch as they sit on top of a large pile of empty boxes hoping to sell out in the months and years to come.

I still think EA set the ultra limited edition to 1000 so they can hype up the game and make hardcore gamer believe it is worth that price. With $150 x 1000, EA can easily make $150K. Not a bad marketing.

So they throw in some extras that are nothing special and not worth the extra 90 bucks and call it Super Ultra Limited or whatever? The game only costs 60 and the extras are 90? All they are doing is capitalizing on crazy collectors who will buy anything if there is a chance it will skyrocket in value or become some sought after object of desire (and I am just as guilty of this as most of you, within reason). 70 or maybe 80 and sign me up but 150 is retarded.

This is a good bundle. I think the price is inflated but not by much. The art book and graphic novel aren't chepies. The Animated DVD is getting solid reviews. The box, patch and lithograph are little touches that add value. I'm only disappointed that I can't get the animated movie on Blu-Ray. Probably because this is an Xbox 360 bundle.

Dude, the art book is available free to anyone who pre-orders at Best Buy. You can even just buy it boxed for $5 off the shelf and I would guess that if you wait long enough, it will be pennied out at Best Buy in the weeks ahead. You can buy the game for about $50 at Circuit City with coupon or potentially $40 if you get it as part of the TRU B2G1F sale this week. I'm not going to do the math because frankly it has already been done on Cheap Ass Gamer. The limited box, patch and litho are basically $50 on top of the game, art book, DVD and graphic novel assuming full MSRP on all those items which is not the real world, but it's not a good bundle by any stretch of the imagination. Also, the tax and shipping take it up to $170 most places, so I can't see how anyone is tempted by this junk.

Construction is very good. Lots of heavy reinforced cardboard. Feels like a hardcover comic anthology. Also came with a signed and numbered card from the executive producer.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for limited editions.

The "unbox" pictures from someone on another site who ordered one are up now.

I stick by my assertion that this isn't a "Limited Edition" by any stretch. The behind the scenes disc is a PC CD-Rom. I suspect that they originally were going to do the ultra limited version for the PC which is why the outer box matches the PC cover art and color scheme so closely. The set is still available for sale at the EA Store and Amazon dropped the price on the Blu Ray movie to $20 if anyone is interested.

Poofta!

I gotta agree with DP here. When these are gone they're gonna be difficult to track down.

its also been getting a ton of good reviews. If Dead Space takes off and gets a stronger following after the game is released (through word of mouth, reviews, demos ect.) it will make the LE higher in demand and still just as limited as before. It just came out and hasn't really flopped or anything, and with the good reviews, I don't think it is really going to flop. Can't wait to try out the game.

They were selling for around that much not long ago. Now the only completed listing that has sold was for $800 and comes with deadspace 2 LE. Didn't see if it was new or used, I opened mine when i first got it because I didnt intend on selling it.

This one has pretty much always maintained it's value over the years. Maybe not the exact value, but well over what they were sold as new. I think now is probably a good time to start collecting xbox 360 as the majority of the games are extremely cheap, and I see them all over the place at flea markets and second hand stores. My brother has been collecting 360 lately and he orders new/sealed games for under $10 for some titles.

I have to agree with this; it's a ripe time in yard sales for that generation (and maybe for games that are just a little older.) Check a few of my finds from last year:


...this took place before my last post from August 19th and I have no date for it but it was between April and July.

I bought:

1 White Dreamcast;
1 A/V Cable;
1 Controller;
1 Memory Card (not a VMU; )
102 Dalmations (complete; )
Sonic Adventure (complete; )
Toy Story 2 (complete.)

For $5. I sold the 3 games on eBay and bought Crazy Taxi 1 and 2 for about $15 each.

Later, in early August, I bought:

2 DS systems;
1 GBA SP (which I later broke by dropping on the floor, they're made of brittle plastic; )
a Gamecube with no controller;
Various games, mostly for the GBA and DS (including Pokemon Leafgreen)
1 Mario Plush
1 Mario Kart Lunch Box (for lack of a clearer term; it's not aluminum)

All for about $28. I sold most of that on eBay and made more than 3x my investment back on it.

Last month, I found a copy of Paper Mario: TTYD for $1 and sold it for $43 w/ free shipping on eBay. The time is ripe.

Not to get too off topic but anything older than Playstation is probably going to be under scrutiny. Classic Gaming's gone up in popularity and there are other stores than Joe's around for it, I've even been into the one in the Monroeville PA Mall which had a Top Loading NES for sale.
