Urgh bit annoying how GAME decided to announce they were selling it too. I thought GameStop.co.uk had it as an exclusive!? :s
Not too bothered about paying an extra £5, but it's all those extra GAME reward points I've missed out on. Oh well at least I have a copy.

This is really irritating - I was looking forward to getting this for weeks, but since both Game and Gamestop wanted payment upfront I could only afford it recently, and all the units are already allocated...
Called into one of the Gamestops in town today and I was told that I might get one if someone doesn't pick one up on launch day, but that's it. Seeing as I have no intention of paying €200 for it on eBay (only so much a student can afford), I'll just have to content myself with the "regular" special editon.

Sorry for the double post, but I was looking into getting a copy from mainland europe - it costs €150 there! That is 25% more than what game.co.uk were charging, and practically the same markup over gamestop.ie - what gives?
I'd probably pay €110-€120, what we were being asked for in Ireland/UK - but €150 is taking the mick. I feel bad for those guys, they're clearly getting ripped off.

We are indeed. But it's always been this way. We almost always pay more for Special Editions like this. It's the same with DVDs and BluRays.
But then again we mostly get all of the goodies with one distributor while you guys have different goodies with Amazon, gamestop or GAME, and have to make the tough choice to decide which edition from which distributor you will buy, we almost everytime get EVERY goodie for a game from Amazon for example.
At least here in Germany that is.
