    Hi guys,

    I don't know if I'm being stupid or not, but I've checked the usual major UK retailer websites for games - Game, Play.com, Gamestation, Gamestop, HMV, Gameplay and Amazon and I can't seem to find any of them selling the Collectors edition on the 360.

    They all seem to stock the collectors edition for the PC and Ps3, but not the Xbox. Is there some store that got an exclusive on it, or am I just being thick?

    You're not being thick, nowhere has it up for pre-order presently and it is annoying. I NEED MAH FEMSHEP COVER!

    Edit: Just pestered them on Twitter. If they reply I will post here.

    Game and Gamestation are the only ones that are selling the Collector's edition and they have sold out on the Xbox 360 versions as well as game being sold out on the PC version. I don't know the exact details but The Company who owns Game and Gamestation got exclusives rights to sell the CE version in the UK. Your best bet now is to check in store if they have any spare (The ones in Carlisle and Gretna don't) Or import it like have done from an English speaking country like Canada or the USA. Bioware always make the games region free so it should work.

    Here is the link to amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Mass-Effect-3-Collectors-Xbox-360/dp/B0050SYZS0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1327497954&sr=8-2 and If I were you, you better make your decision very soon because these things are going faster then Val Kilmer to an all you can eat buffet.

    Also as extra kicker, there is chance that the DLC that comes with the action figures may not be available in the UK.

    Well, when your right your right Gretnablue.

    I took a walk into the nearest GAME during my lunch hour, and the guys in there gave me the exact same story, and said the store had already assigned its entire allocation of 360 versions.

    He marked me down for a Ps3 copy of the CE edition and told me when I go to collect it they should be able to switch it for a 360 edition, as he tells me they always have spare copies on release day.

    Not sure I completely believe him, but worst case senario I tell them to refund my deposit.

    Actually loads of skins and weapons, extra missions, an extra character, and all the other goodies that I am willing to shell out for.

    And typically, no sooner have I friggin pre-ordered a ps3 version have game now decided to list it on their website again. Talk about bad timing.

    Extra character? From what I read that one will be included with the CE edition, not the figures. Anywhere I can confirm that?

    Soprry, think we got our wires crossed, I thought you meant the dlc with the collectors edition, not the figures.

    I think the figures are only randomised skins and weapons, and likely aren't going to be available outside of North America.

    The mission and characters are a surviving prothean.

    Goddamit, but then, if it's only with the collectors edition, then I guess it's not too important to the story. The odds are I won't even get the collectors edition anyway so I guess I shouldn't really complain
    Now that, I wouldn't mind
