So who is getting it?

Got mine preordered on the xbox, so I will be looking for some multiplayer groupage if anyone wants a game.

I'll have to get a move on and finish my current run through of ME2 with full squad loyalty then! :)

I have avoided anything story/demo related like the plague. I don't want to run into any spoilers. I have just finished up the add ons for ME 2 and I had forgot what a great game this was.

I got back with Liara,even though I got slagged off for sleeping with Miranda. My Shephard has needs! :)

The arrival add on has something that might be related to the start of mass effect 3, and I think I read somewhere that it has consequences.

nah, not quite for this one. you get it with the collectors edition, but if you got the normal edition you need to buy it. i think. i'm not clear on the details myself as i'm getting the ce (hopefully...) and dont really care :p just surprised someone else hadnt mentioned it really.

A podcast I listen to mentioned that if you bought all the mercendise that goes along with it it would set you back 900 dollars (ish).

What a misleading article...
A lot of what they list unlocks the same things it would appear... And they list stuff the ce gives you too...
The truth is bad enough, they don't need to fabricate more :p

Oh. They forgot mass effect 1+2+dlc too..

edit: just to explain further.... i'm pretty sure all the "Collector Assault Rifle unlock DLC/Powerup" are the same, and allegedly if you already have it in ME2, you will get it in ME3 too. and the multiplayer unlocks are (likely) just skins or available through gameplay anyway.
so really it comes down to �50 for the CE, and you can buy a peripheral if you really want.
counting the iphone game is a little ridiculous - its a separate game... and i somehow doubt people are buying a �200 headset just for the DLC... if they are, they deserve to milked for every penny they've got.


i also hate the obsession with having every bit of dlc going anyway -
it is very much like saying 'did you know that to play WoW properly, and by that i mean unlock the FULL experience, you have to have every piece of unlockable stuff? so you need to buy the spectral tiger mount (~�1000 on ebay last i checked), all the blizz con pets, etc etc...'

0-day DLC is a complete con.
CE stuff should be either limited to *hats* or Level Limited
Selling *Gold Ammo* for �200 and a free headset is an appalling business ploy.

If you have the same problem as I did get on blockbuster.co.uk they have the CE in stock but they are going fast.

I bet this has to do with Game being close to going pop.....that won't be good for any gamers.

I had the collectors edition on order from Game too. Luckily I managed to reorder it from play before everywhere sold out.

Collectors was exclusive to Game too at one point.

up until yesterday, cath.
i've reordered from amazon.

game has been a failing company for years though - trying to sell people games in shops that they could just order for �10 and get the next day, for example... it worked a bit i guess, but because of their limited market (ie. people that didnt know any better, or who really needed something in a hurry) they'd try and gouge those people for as much as they could when they got the chance. which doesnt do much for getting repeat business.

and their way of selling preowned games really fucked me off. especially when i watched them sell a 'practically new' 360 game to some old bloke just before christmas - was obviously a gift for someone so he didnt know what was going on with it. i interupted them trying to sell it to him to point out that there were single use codes in the new one that would have already been used in the preowned one... oddly enough they didnt have an answer when he asked them why they hadnt mentioned that whilst telling him that it was the exact same product only �5 cheaper. he just walked out, and i got glared at by the staff till i left :p
