Sorry about the niche topic guys but can you Australians tell me if you think Jb hifi will do pre-ordering of the se and ce. Rockstar only lists EB games and they are way too overpriced.

I pre ordered the game from JB Hi Fi in NZ when it was first able to be pre ordered, then rang them up and changed it to the collectors edition yesterday with no problems at all.

JB Hi Fi's here in NZ have been doing pre order's for a while now. Can switch it between Collectors/Special or the normal edition.

A friend of mine works at the JB Hi-Fi in Hobart as the games manager. I haven't heard anything from her regarding the special/collectors editions.

EB's are saying the CE is exclusive to them, and no mention of it on JB's site. I'm heading there later today smile.gif

JB isn't getting the SE, but they do have the CE, and bondi junction in Sydney was the only one I was able to pre order with yesterday, everyone else only got 3-4 copies for offer. But yeah EB is stating they got it exclusive, but me and two of my mates just pre ordered CE at bondi yesterday.

Oh, now I'm confused, what's the different between the SE and CE? I thought they were the same.

Check the newswire for the distinction between them. Tell us what happens at jb if you don't mind.

JB were given the same intrsuctions as EB, all pre orders over $50 were given automative first choice for the collectors edition. They have to call pre orders from first to last and give them first choice, a few of the JB's got more copies than EB Games and as stated i rang every JB in Sydney, only Bondi would qallow me to pre order, the dude there is a legend.

Anyone know how much it is to buy the Speical Edition from EB in Australia? Can't find anything online, plus my usual retailer wants to charge me $120 just for the standard game.

JB Hifi won't go any higher that $89 and they always break street-date on big releases, so there's no way I'm purchasing from any other retailer.

Haha, sure, it won't go lower than $99, except it's already $89.

Just an FYI, it would be the same price for the collectors edition as eb if jb has it.

Also $110 is just a place holder, they might price it at 89.95 when the game releases and you will get 20 bucks back from eb games.

I went to pre-order the special edition at JB HI FI and apparently they only stock the collectors edition.
