Why is this Overpriced ?,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II [Hardened Edition] - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
You can get this edition for $74.99 anywhere. This is a rip off just so you guys know. I preorder my hardened edition at GameStop . And I'm not paying $180 for it .........

Item originally cost $79.99, not $74.99!! Amazon and every major retailer that I know of have sold out of the PS3 version. The price you see now is from a third-party seller, not Amazon. This happens every time they come out with a Hardened Edition for a new COD game. If you already preordered the item then you have nothing to worry about. If someone hasn't preordered it, then they will unfortunately have to pay a ridiculous amount to get one now.

B. Phillips is right- prices get hiked up considerably once primary retailers run out of stock, since third parties are the ones offering them.
However, Toys R Us actually still has the PS3 Hardened edition in stock on their website. They'll probably sell out as well, though. Just a heads up.

Also, the ratings are for the product itself, not for how you think it is unfair the scalpers are trying to rip you off. If you have a problem with the scalper you should post it in the forum or complain to Amazon, not rate the game one star since people who see low ratings will think it is rated low because it sucks.

Yes I agree dont pay this much these people are money hungry!!!! as of today November 4th toys r us is still taking pres orders I just got my copy go to toysrus.com and ore order and you will receive your copy the day of.... saving yourself the overpayment and the hassle of waiting in line. True gamers would never hike the price this much 100.00 maybe but This is outrageous 3rd party price gouging. I hope you all find this helpful.

The COD-BOII Hardened Edition is still available for pre-order at Target.com. Just checked.
