Limited Editions That Were Actually Limited

It’s rare to find a limited edition that’s actually limited. Really, just go into your local mega store the week of release, sometimes even months down the road, and you can grab a “limited edition”, no pre-order needed.
So here’s a few limited editions from the past few years that were actually, truly hard-to-get-your-hands-on limited.

...of Uncharted 2 is the most limited edition ever. I love you Naughty Dog...

I really wanted the Uncharted 2 special edition... I was pissed when they said very limited... meaning only a select few would get it!

I've never bought a limited edition but am keeping an eye on the reach set. The quality of the statue and them talking like they are numbered makes me wonder just how limited they'll be, unlike the halo 3 helmets.

I don't know, I realize when they say numbered, they just give it a number out of production but it doesn't state out of how many. So as long as people keep preordering, they keep making and printing a number.

So when they say number, I don't believe it to be limited anymore. The last thing I ever got that has a number stated and out of how many was the limited edition MGS4 Strategy guide, and it's the litograph that is actually limited.

yeah this is the first limited edition i've ever come across that kind of catching my eye. I guess it's the artist in me and the whole statue thing. I'm just curious if it'll end up like mw2 where they are still on store shelves 6 months later or if it truely is something special.

The statue does look nice but I guess that all depends on how many copies MS prints.

I preordered GT5 on the assumption is going to very limited but it doesn't feel like it's the case especially when they just call it collector edition. Also the diecast model car is going to be numbered but it doesn't feel like it will state out of how many.

But as long as we are happy with our purchase, that's all that is important.

yeah I watched the unboxing video and the statue does look like really good quality. It was the unboxing video that official convenced me it's something I should at least preorder. I did the next day at best buy lol.

I like Uncharted 2 Special Edition. :P
Actually Naughty Dog gave you a chance to buy the special edition from the website it wasn't only for contests.

I bought the standard bioshock 2 because the limited edition ones were crazy overpriced....turns out I wasn't the only one that thought that. 90% of retail stores still have the rapture editions + whatever the hell the other ltd edition one was called... and they are selling them for less than the regular just to clear shelf space...

i just got the limited incl a 12" vinyl soundtrack +++ for $25... ;)

I'm jealous you bastard, I contemplated buying the ltd edition just because it was so cheap...but the voice inside said "no it belong to the poor, no says the man in russia; it belongs to everyone. I dared to dream of a new ideology, i dreamed...of rapture" _ Andrew Ryan Intro to bioshock
