inFamous 2 'Hero' Edition is currently being sold for an electrifying low-price.
$100 to $60..meh I'll just have the game alone please =P
why a price drop, is it not selling well?
Not sure but a week ago, it was $60 at PC Richards. That's where I've gotten my for $60.
Special editions always get price dropped quickly.
Motherpuncher, goddamnit, I already bought the regular edition.
Good tip for the future. These collector editions always drop in price fast (normally down to the same price of a regular edition, some times even less) usually in an month or two. It took a great deal of power to fight the urge on buying Infamous 2 Hero Edition when it first came out and weeks later but that all paid off. You do run the risk of the game being sold out or waiting for a long time before it finally hit the sweet spot but I say the risk are pretty low these days. Just my $.02. Also, check out the Slickdeals and CAG forum and you'll be a smarter shopper.
Got mine for $75 release day from Amazon. Was totally worth it with misc credit I had. I play both good and evil games as Reaper and Kessler. I just wish you could use the Kessler skin and samurai sword. My first play through was with the samurai sword on good karma.
techically i see see quite a few edition boxs at futureshop.
This is why I don't buy a collector's/special edition for it's MSRP. You're better off waiting because they always make more than what the demand is and the retailers need to sell them to clear shelf space. It doesn't mean the game isn't selling though. If I remember correctly, the Halo Reach collector's edition also went on sale a little after release. If companies really want an edition to be special or limited than they should only make a thousand or so to be sold worldwide, # each one individually, and include some sort of team signed poster.
Meh, was hoping this was a UK offer for the version/CE with the blue/red controllers. I'd have gone for a blue controller and then sold the sealed game/traded it on(already got the game itself) but I've no room or interest for normal action figure/steelbook/artbook editions. not my bag and never was, really. Never seems like the merch is of anything like the quality i;'d wish to display-and it's not that i'd be ashamed to have a Cole on the shelf I'd just be ashamed at the quality we get in Spec eds. My mum, blass her, got me a spec edition of Reach with THAT set of posed figures/little statues and I have to wheel them out when she comes round but normally they stay well hidden! Again, if they weren't just a freize of placcy tackiness I'd be happy to have a Spartan or two(or the full Noble!)but niether Bungie, Sony nor the rest of the industry EVER gives us stuff I think worth putting up on the wall/shelf. I'd much rather a few nice prints of concept art with the normal game or for just a few quid extra. I DID like the electric blue DS3 though! Maybe ?I expect too much but what's the ploint if they can't get soething good out for the price? Just seems like they're trying it on even more than usual and as the only industry in the world that fails to see any benefit in second hand sales of their product(or see people selling them on as maybe a sign they could have made a better effin game) that's saying something.
must only be america that it ain't selling well. http://www.play.com/Games/P...
well, i can honestly say that im.... Shocked.
Anybody notices how the only ones that seem to never go down in price are the CoD LE. Anyway, back on topic.. I'm going to try to get this one
At Best Buy we've got the Killzone 3 Helghast for 49.99. I bought it when it first came out, and the helemt/book keeper is a pretty cool add on. The Sniper action figure is pretty sweet too (Work plug not intended)
Are you serious!?
for the bag itself and i was not disappointed. I still have the bag but no longer hold the copy of my game i guess time to buy it again for $40 less killzone 3 helgast edition is or was on sale at bestbuy for 49.99 also these special or limited editions are not taht limited after all because my bestbuy had a lot of them one thing that's changing in gaming industry is when a game launches you can do few things: buy it at launch and get 15-25 dollar gift card depending on where you getting it from or wait a week or 2 and save 30 bucks look at fear3,shadow of damned both selling for $40 bucks while duke nukeum will be down to 10-15 within a month now a days hold yourself and just wait a couple of weeks to get the best possible deal
Idk its tempting but that backpack it comes with looks really cheap, but I am basing that off the just picture so I can't really tell.
The bag isn't particularly cheap. I thought it was a decent little bonus, though I've only used it once so far. The rest of it I didn't care about... but the super voucher is nice, all the skins and extra powers and stuff. If that appeals to you, the Hero Edition is worth getting. On the other hand, in a year or so all those extras will be a free download off PSN. That's what they did with the I1 pre-order bonuses, and I assume it'll be the same here.
It's a pretty solid bag. It's not the quality of a $100 bag but it's at least at $20 quality bag. It's big enough to hold quite a few things like water bottle, skateboard (on the outside like how the bag holds the amp), 15 inch laptop, wallet, random small things, etc. Not only that, I've gotten quite a few compliments on the bag. =] Worth the $60 for the Hero Edition. The only thing I wish was a little different about the bag is to be able to switch between left and right shoulder. It's design to go over right shoulder only.
Thanks for the detailed description the bag sounds like its really nice, I might pick this up now :D
I agree and I bought the CE for the bag alone! It's a good size and highly portable. Theres not much marking on it so people will notice its a gaming item. Its got the mesh weve you would see in a jansport or other such popular back pack. There is a lightly padded shoulder strap and is lightly padded on the inside. You can remove the phone holder if you dont want it (in my case my phone doesnt fit) and looks just find after. The Sly patch is actually very nice quality and overall the bag has some neat side things. Like if you unbuckle the slot where the sly patch is theres a small pocket and the zipper opens a LOT of the bag so getting things in/out is a breeze. Unlike a lot of items you see in collectors editions this was actually intended for people to use and it shows.
it is cheap now but i regret buying this for 100 mainly b/c i didn't really like the game all that much story wise. The statue looks nothing like the new cole and the new cole looks nothing like the old cole(Infamous1). The comic was ok it's only like 6 pages though. The reaper and kessler skins are pretty sweet, so is the sly cain, but the backpack has a really plastic feel not like cloth which was dissapointing. If you a super fan it's probably worth it but other wise it an ok package at best.
The color of the bag is ridiculous. Why couldn't they just make it the same color as Cole's bag in the game?
the only reason for me is that you get all the pre order bonuses from various retailers in one code with that super voucher.
I actually like the color of the bag, it's not too bright of an orange and matches pretty well with most clothes (for me at least).
I'm playing through the capign now and I have come across a lot of bugs. The games is fun but very repetive.
60 dollars? thats really tempting
I picked it up earlier. The bag sells for $35-50 on eBay, and the statue is roughly $20. So... the game, voucher, and comic are free. No complaints. Going to get my money back, I have no use for a small bag or statue.
Too many games do the 'limited edition' thing these days. Plus the things that come with the games normally are not really worth it. Most gamers must have at least 6+ statues of one figure or another. And it's just collects dust. I mean I have my Helgast helmet in my basement to scare the mice away. And I have no room in my house for it.
You don't have to get these "limited editions" and they use the term collector edition or whatever they want to dub it these days. They say it's in limited quantity and it is even if it's produce in a huge batch. I got this for the bag mainly. I decided to wait for the price to drop and it did. I'm glad I waited out. If you perceive there to be little value in the collector edition, then simply don't get it.
i wish more games would have special editions that are just a hard metal case with an art book and sound track. I love getting special editions but i dont want that big box and all that crap. Just a nice case and art book would be great.
I'm shocked that it is at such an electrifying low price. They could be charged for that. ....
Yea, I can't believe it's currently selling at this price
OIC WUT U DID THAR!
How well did Infamous 2 sell anyway?
Its at about 600-700k. Not bad for 5 weeks.
wow, i paid 100 for mine, because it was sold out everywhere else, but they still have em out there? new?
The retailed who had the exclusive in Blighty has sold out of it. Would love that spesh edition. Blah. Saving my pennies for the Resistance 3 bundle.
There is no such thing as limited or collectors editions. Just like the article said...you can find these editions on store shelves a month after release for $59 or less. I'm amazed gamers still get suckered into buy them. It is pathetic that developers/publishers take advantage of their most dedicated fans. This is the norm now and it certainly does not pertain to just Sucker Punch and Sony. The same thing happened recently with the Halo Reach collectors edition (which I got for $39) and Black Ops. The limited editions? They are used to secure pre-orders and they claim that is the only way to get it. Yet more lies, because for weeks after release you can find limited editions on shelves as well. Having said that...if I didn't buy Infamous 2 day one I would certainly pick this edition up for that price. Easy decision, but over $100...I don't think so.
Just like with the Killzone 3 helghast edition that ive bought for $150. About a few weeks later it went down to $80. HUGE kick in the balls ever for me....but thats the thing though you dont know if itll be in the stores or not.
Anyone know if this is online only or is it the same price in stores?
GameStop sale most likely, the do it alot of times.
I might pick one up.
This is why I don't like the idea of a download only future. Look at how fast CEs drop in price these days. 60 bucks for none tradeable or even lendable download that eats up a lot of HDD space, or all that CE for 60 bucks? Infamous 2 is on PSN right now for 60 bucks. I remember not long after Alan Wake came out, I got the CE for $37, brand new on Amazon. It was actually CHEAPER than the regular one!
Gotta be kidding me...maybe I should've waited till now to buy it.
LOL @day 1 buyers. Infamous 2 GOW 3 Halo Reach Killzone 3 GT5 It's always the same with these overpriced CE, nobody buys it.
Yes yes yes and more yes. I always wanted it but $100 wasn't justified for me. $60 dollars is good enough, just bought 1.
inFAMOUS 2 has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide, I don't know if that's less than Sony expect but, hey it's only been out for a month.
Meh buying it at launch supports good games. No worries. Glad to know more get to experience the awesomeness cheaper.
im so gonna buy it now
yup, picking it up tomorrow!
its still $100 in Canada but the usa is the only thing that matters on n4g/w ill end it there. http://www.gamestop.ca/ps3/...
Picked mine up!
Never played InFAMOUS 1, but I just started playing InFAMOUS 2 about a week ago. It's such a fun game! I never liked sci-fi games, but this game just seems so original and I love the fact that you can just climb about anything.
The second one is so much better than the original. Support this great game!
TBH, the collector's/special/premiu m/limited editions for let's say Atlus, Xseed, Working Designs, Konami, NISA, and other Japanese companies just seem to be have more appealing. I mean their limited editions are most of are actually limited. (Konami surprised me with Castlevania though, all the other Castlevania special/extras are usually gone by the time the game is released...) Not to bash on Western limited editions or anything, it is just that they seem to be doing it more for the cash ins than actual good content... (i have to say though, Sony knows how to do it better than other game companies. I'm not talking about Sony of Japan, because they usually don't do that kind of stuff with their Japanese IPs)
When and bought it an hour after the post of this article on N4G.. Local Gamestop received 2 and someone had already bought the other one. Nice pick up - extra DLC is nice bonus.
whi is this an article? This happens with every single title. Cheapest was 2w2 royal edition for $39.99. This is the norm people. Games also drop to $39.99 week one at target stores
So, went to the closest Gamestop, asked them if they had it, they didn't, so had a great idea. Went to Best Buy, saw they had it in stock, told the guy about it, and he matched the price for me. WIN
