BF3 Limited Edition

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So, i just bought BF3 and low and behold, i found the Limited Edition instores (At Best Buy) for the same price as the normal edition that didn't include "Back to Karkand" for free. Who else bought the Limited Edition in stores without pre-ordering?

I know 4 of my friends who bought the game at EB games all got the Limited Edition without pre-ordering. I pre-ordered my copy though.

See, what my thinking is, is that: All the limited editions that we are buying in stores are from cancelled pre-orders and what was left of the stock of Limited Edition, that would have gone to the buyer, they cancelled and Best Buy and EB games and the others are trying to get their money back for it by selling it as is.

Better for me i guess (The same thing happened to me when i bought dead island at gamestop, i got the Special Edition one that was only suppose to go to Pre-Orders)

Well, the "Limited Edition" is limited. It's just that pre-ordering the game guarantees you a copy of the limited edition. There will still be a lot of the LE copies on shelves in stores but it is of limited quantity.

I figured it's pretty much the same price as buying the game normally so it wouldn't hurt to pre-order anyway.

When you pay for a pre-order you arent paying more... it comes out of the price of the game when you purchase it...

The way the limited editions work is they aren't truely only for preorders, they are the first shipment(s) for instance if you have 20 preorders, and get 100 copies, they'll all be limited editions. At the gamestop I work at, we still have some limited editions of medal of honor, etc, just because they've been sitting there since launch. We also have about 300+ copies of the limited for BF3 just because they all came at once. The preorder perk was the physical warfare pack (guns, fleschette ammo, something else) and that was what you won't get if you didn't preorder.
If you pay $5 more for a preorder you're getting ripped off, the 5$ should come off of the total price when you pick up the game. Not 100% how Best Buy's system works but at GS any money that you put towards the game ahead is just money you don't have to pay when you pick it up, not paying anymore for the actual game.

edit: double ninja'ed lol

Thats it exactly they dont make the exact amount of games to match pre-orders. a month or 2 before release they will tally up the pre-orders add a certain %age, and print that many. No company can get an exact ammount printed
