    Unlike most "Limited Editions" earned its name this actually, because the edition is limited to 2,000 copies. What the Duke Nukem Forever Balls Of Steel Limited Edition contains exactly do you see in the gallery.
    I'm guessing it's more like

    Priced at $99.99, the Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition will be available exclusively through GameStop and Amazon in the United States. Quantities will be limited, so be sure to pre-order as soon as you can!
    it just says that it's limited, but not by how much...

    something tells me it will be a lot more than 2,000. I mean there are more than 2000 GameStop locations in the USA. Nevermind the fact that it's coming to Europe and on 3 platforms. If it were that limited it would have to have been exclusive through 2K's online store.

  10. Ayiu:
    The European price is 119€....that's much more than the US price.

    I got a Newsletter from the shop where I preordered it and it says that the Edition is limited to 2000 units per Platform and to US and Europe.

  11. hazzmos:
    Amazon US had all 3 versions for pre-order a week or so ago, now only PS3 version is available for pre-order.....hmmm, what to do....

  12. Mandingo:
    Gamestop (and perhaps other websites) still have all three versions available for pre-order.

    In regards to Amazon, they won't charge until the item ships, so it's always a good idea to at least pre-order a CE you're interested in ASAP, to insure you will get a copy.

    If you change your mind, simply cancel.

  13. Knoell:
    Thats exactly what I do Mandingo, I have the MK Tournament Edition preordered, I am just waiting to see if it sells out on Amazon before I cancel it. It is a nice way to deal with some of these lackluster CE's we have seen. (Not that the MK: Tournament Edition will be lackluster, it actually looks sweet.)

    It's £90 here in the UK, seem other Euro countries are being ripped off more than others.

    Are you brave enough to pre order from shopto? Their packing doesn't have the best rep. Wonder if any other uk stockist will list it

    Exactly my thoughts. I'm recalling a horror story from member giGant that happened about a month ago:

    For everyone who didn't already pre-order the Duke Nukem Edition, here's another place to order from (regular price: £59.99 - with the code FIVEOFFZAVVI only £54.99)

    XBox 360 Version: http://www.zavvi.com/games/platforms...ml?affil=BUYAT

    PS3 Version: http://www.zavvi.com/games/platforms...ml?affil=BUYAT

  18. gurpswoo1:
    Everyone is right about Shopto, when it comes to big boxed items, shopto are quite good.

    For smaller items, not so much.

    Zavvi also have a bad reputation,but the price is quite good. Thanks for the code Red Sunday and welcome to the forum.

  19. enemyzero:
    Hmmm so it's a choice between zavvi and shop to, we are so spoilt!!
