Man I can not believe the lows people will go to, to make a buck. Most of you already know this is a rip off but in case there is some poor unsuspecting kid or parent who doesn't, the Special Edition of MvC3 retails for $70. There are some real lowlifes who have bought these and taken advantage of the fact that amazon has sold out, to try to resell them for 2x - 3x retail. Amazon WILL get more very soon or else you can buy them from another retailer. Do not give your money to these sellers!
seriously, more people needs to read this, look at what these pigs are doing on ebay! http://video-games.shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=marvel+vs+capcom+3+special+edition+ps3&_sacat=1249
Hi, just need to keep on waiting, I've been waiting for the Street fighter 4 Collectors Edition when at the pre order time was sold out, and an a half week after the release date i found it here in amazon (sold by amazon at the original price $79), just wait and look at anytime on amazon's page.
Currently there is no where you can get the Special Edition. Unless you have some information confirming that there will be another shipment of MVC3 Special Editions then its not bad to assume that there will be no restock of the Special Edition. So, have you read anywhere that there will actually be a second shipment from Capcom?
There was a message from a Capcom employee on their forums that when the Special Edition copies are gone, they're gone. It's possible they may do a reprinting in the future if demand is high enough, but as of now checking a smaller local game store and getting lucky would be your only way to find an SE without getting scalped.
There's a good chance the two dlc characters will be $5 each anyway, meaning for the same $70 you could get the standard edition and the dlc when it launches and only really miss out on the metal case and some promo artwork stuff... Honestly not really a big deal.
