Collector's Edition Price Confusion?!

I've been hunting around a lot of online stores like Play, Amazon and HMV and both the individual and collector's version of the game are the same price?. Is this price locked? If so then that's a pretty cheap collector's edition, which is definitly worth the price.

Technically, in US dollars, the Collector's edition is $20 more. I dunno about other currencies, but that would be amazing if in some countries it were the same. We Americans would be screwed XD

Re: Collector's Edition Price Confusion?!

I'd just expect that they haven't received the proper pricing structure from Microsoft yet. No idea why they would price them the same, you could always try pre-order it now and see if you get it at that price.

Though pre-order prices can change and they usually notify you of the change and if you wish to keep the pre-order in or retract it due to the price increase.

@JamesLove: I dunno. I'm used to driving on the left-side of the cars, that and I'd probably shoot myself around the fifth day. That and I have a ramen shop here. But cheaper there...decisions decisions.

@DrDoom They're taking their sweet time with it, I emailed them asking about it they said they heard no word of a Collector's Edition. ?_?

Me too. I'm going to check if they are taking pre-orders in store for it yet tomorrow when I pick up AVP. They need to get on top of this thing damnit.

GameStop.com works tirelessly with game publishers to ensure accurate release dates on our site.

Sometimes dates move forward; more often they move back, and frequently they get changed more than once.
If a game is scheduled for release far in the future, the vendor may not even give us a date. In those cases we rely on the collective wisdom of our buying staff to estimate a date based on their knowledge of the industry and the vendor's history.
We guarantee that we will always post the best release date information available at the time of our posting. We know that you want that hot new game yesterday, and we want to be the company that gets it to you quicker than anyone else.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to respond to this email.

Original Message Follows: ------------------------

It's been recently brought to my attention that Alan Wake has a collector's edition being released, is there any knowledge whether or not Gamestop will be releasing it? Or will it simply hold the normal Alan Wake?

Also, Alan Wake's release date is announced as May 18th 2010

They do have robots working there. I emailed them before to ask about the dante's figure and i got a canned reply that had nothing to do with my question. Respond to it and ask again and a person may answer it correctly.

It can't be a robot she's got a name.

Tamara sounds like a good human name to me.

Either way I'd imagine it will go up sometime this week.

I just preordered it from amazon, hope it stays at £40ish, thats a bargain for the limited edition in my opinion! I'm going to get this edition regardless if the price increases, this game just looks amazing, I can't wait for release! :-)

I would just like to say well done for the limited edition remedy, it's fantastic, love the book case idea, the contents, the bonus disc and the soundtrack! It's an all round very desirable package with no gimmicks (e.g.flashlight), everything inside seems very appropriate! Oh and of course the DLC's a good idea too! :-D Thanks again!

Fortune and Glory

Just wait a while. British pricing tends to fall short against American pricing - which is why i often buy expensive stuff from America!
