Ever wanted to get that Limited or Collectors Edition on a game? But never wanted to pay the extra $20-$30 bucks? Heres a little deal that they don’t really advertise at Gamestops.
Hm, wonder if the Irish Gamestops do this too... Oh and nice find and post, I almost forgot to say that. ^_^
Interesting...if it actually works. Either way I would hate to buy a game at gamestop.
Yeah man just go ask. They'll let you know. And thanks alot ^_^
My buddy did this with BF3 only thing is he doesn't know what all is coming with it, still it's a good deal. Thing is though I believe they told him you can't just put $5 on it, you have to actually pay the whole thing off right then...at least that's what they told him.
That's weird. I preordered Battlefield 3 and the employee let me know beforehand that it I would preorder it right then and there that it would get upgraded to the limited edition at no extra cost. Also, he told me I only needed to put down $5 minimum to ensure I get my Battlefield 3 Limited Edition copy.
Yea i thought it was weird, guess the gamestop employee just didn't know what he was talking about.
Every copy of BF3 that is preordered is upgraded to the limited edition.
it does work my gamestop told me about it too. and i did only put $5 on it too.
Interesting idea, but how many of these are really worth it? I got Fallout New Vegas CE for 30 at gamestop. CoD Black Ops Prestige edition for 40 at TRU. Demon Souls CE for 45. etc... So many of the CE's that come out don't appeal to me and personally I rather pay the extra 10 20 30 40 hell even 100 just to not deal with the hassle. You figure always preordering games and canceling those that don't pay off is money I lack and makes me look weird in their eyes. In the end this just isn't worth it when many CE's dont hold value. @ Zombie: Thats the minimal to preorder a game.
Uh....Battlefield 3 is automatically the Limited Edition. It's like Medal of Honor. Or Battlefield 2: Bad Company. It's a limited run, but still costs $60. http://www.amazon.com/Battl...
I've never heard of this or seen it in action. I almost always pre-order a day or two after a game's announcement and this has never happened at my GameStop.
ermmmm i wounder if they knew about medal of honor, battlefield, LA noire, Dragon Age 2, and ten tons of other games.....this isn't the first time they do it....and really i don't consider them collector's editions because they only come with things they sell later as dlc
"I went to Gamestop today and asked them myself and here are some of the Games that are doing this deal right now:" Lol, That's an awesome GameStop this guy lives by. My local Gamestop would not be able to even mention one of those games listed by the author.
There's actually a difference between "Limited Edition" and "Collectors Edition".
This doesn't work at EB (our Gamespot) in Australia though...too bad.
Yeah so i picked up Witcher to on Tuesday and I definitely got the special edition with booklet, map, poster, coin, etc...I didn't pre-order, the guy just kinda gave it to me..I thought it was because he thought I was cool...
I call bullshit
Go to gamestop and ask them yourself then. Because I went there yesterday and confirmed this.
Ya...they said something about u can upgrade anytime...but its for the limited/collectors edition price, they just don't upgrade for free. That's what they told me anywayz. OR OR OR the Gamestop people in the area are complete Idiots...that might be the case but I digress...
