IN STOCK - Red Dead Redemption LIMITED EDITION for XBOX 360 - £49.98 @ ShopTo.Net

34
Found 30th Aug 2010
OK, this will probably end up pretty chilly because this was available at a lower price than this prior to it's release and the game has been out a few months but for those of us that like to buy collectors' editions of games this (I found) was hard to find after release. ShopTo seems to be the only place with any stock and although the price hasn't come down much below RRP I think it's still a decent enough price for a hard to find game that has been rated so highly. Just wanted to share with anyone that was in a similar situation to me.

Edit: obviously I should have put the obligatory "if you're going to vote cold, show me where you can get it cheaper etc."

That is from PlayTrade and is for a used copy which you can be sure will have had the special item codes used already. £74.98 for a new copy from PlayTrade. Please check these things before posting.

In your opinion. If you see how much new copies go for on eBay and you want the limited edition then it's a reasonable price. I was more than happy to pay this.

All you cold voters I wish you'd show me where you can get this game new for cheaper than I posted! I'd love to cancel my order at ShopTo and buy it for less somewhere else!

i got the limited edition on release day as it was the same price as the normal edition (£35 or something) and the extra items aren't really worth it, people just pay for the words "limited edition"

the war horse - not much different to any other horse in the game
the golden guns - are hardly ever golden
the assassin outfit - you have to unlock it before you can use it anyway
and the game only comes in a cardboard sleeve unlike many other limited edition cases which are nice to own like the metal halo wars one

Well that's all well and good but I'm afraid I don't have a time machine to go back to release day. By the way, where, may I ask, did you get the limited editon for £35? Didn't ever see that deal posted!

Again, it's your opinion as to whether the limited edition is worth spending the extra on. If people want to pay just to have the words 'limited edition' on their game then let them. This is the cheapest place to do that currently.

sorry just looked and it was 36.85 from shopto
19/05/2010 £36.85 Red Dead Redemption Limited Edition
COMPLETED

its not only my opinion though, loads of reviews/comments online say it's not worth the extra money. this might be the cheapest (the whole point of this site i know) but if it's a ridiculous price for something that isn't worth the money you'll never get hot votes. anyway up to you what you waste your money on, just put your coat on as it's getting cold in here

Without even trying I've got the 200+ heatwave award! Have you? I'm not on here for an ego boost like some people so I don't care if it gets cold. Did you even read what I put in my original post? I'm just trying to let anyone else that still wants to pick this game up new do so. Please take your negativity and opinions elsewhere.

some people have more money than sense to effectively pay a £20 premium for extras like these (£20 off the re-sale value the moment you use the code)

200+ heatwave award, get you. i haven't because i haven't posted any deals, looks like you'll be getting the -200 freezer award for this one. i deleted my first post saying you could get it cheaper direct from play because it appears i was wrong, yet you still seem to have some sort of attitude problem

Collectors' editions like these are generally for people who collect games and don't sell them on. I completely agree that if you buy games, finish them and then trade them in or sell them on then there is no point in spending the extra for a limited edition version.

So you haven't posted any deals but you have made more than 500 comments? Great contribution! And yes, I do have an attitude problem in regards to people who post incorrect information and add nothing helpfull to a discussion that they have no need to be in. Please post something relevant to getting this game new, for less than I did currently if you want to continue. Thanks.

This is available cheaper at Play, and ScamTo are a dodgy retailer, so cold from me unfortunately.

Hmm so it's £20 for a horse, a costume and a gun? Deal!

Can you find it cheaper? This site is not here for you to comment on whether certain products are worth their asking price but for people to find the cheapest price an item is available for.

I use this site to find deals, I do not see this as such, thus I have voted cold to the non deal. Pretty simple logic, me thinks.

Well at least you've admitted you don't get the point.

I personally don't think that spending any money on many items makes any sense but a lot of people spunk their cash on stuff that is completely pointless in my eyes. I don't comment on those deals as they are irrelevant to me. You should do the same.

Any the other deal isn't the same. It is just the regular game but with an e-mailed code. You don't get the other items that come with the proper limited edition.

At the end of the day, if there is just one person other person who has been looking to buy a copy of the limited edition version of this game and doesn't want to spend ~£80 on eBay and saves themselves £30 because of me then it will be worth it. I'll let the rest of you morons go back to your 5p off Lidl baked beans deals. Bye!

what exactly are the 'other items' apart from a cardboard case? Both look to have exactly the same content.

A map and the game's soundtrack on CD at least and the slip case. Not sure what else but like I said to you further up the page, if you're not a collector then there's no point in buying collector's editions. The other version available at Play is pretty good for anyone just wanting the game and the special DLC.

standard edition comes with a map?

But yeah

Mwahahahahahaha cold very very cold,

Yes I own the game, throughly enjoyed the main storyline and looking forward to the single player dlc in November I think it is.


But this is overpriced just for a few dlc items which will be available to purchase on psn for a meer 2 3 quid?

there is no soundtrack cd in the limited edition, it's a code to download it. you don't even know what you've just paid £50 for yet you're fighting so hard for this deal, instead of telling people to do research, do it yourself and find out what you're actually paying for

haha @ the Lidl comment, you're the one who seems to know how much beans cost a Lidl. sorry but i only shop at marks and sainsburys occasionally.

yes there are a few for sale on ebay for £50+ but that doesn't mean people are buying them, if they were bargains they wouldn't still be available

congratulations on almost earning your -300 freezer award (i know you're not here for an ego boost and you're not bothered if it gets cold votes, even though you felt the need to mention your 200+ heatwave award with an exclamation mark)

i agree their site is a little slow probably due to the image they always have in the background but i've placed over 250 orders with them in the past 24 months and had no problems with fraud, their service is 10x better than that at game etc

google shopto fraud m8


i read about it months ago, it was to do with the payment gateway shopto and many other online retailers were using

shopto -> payment gateway(cc details leaked here) -> bank -> shopto

people were saying it was shopto because they had used them at some point in the past, some amazon customers who had never used shopto had their cc details leaked too

since then shopto have changed the way they process payment, not as much information is sent to the gateway and not as much information is saved when you've finished paying, this will avoid fraudulent transactions if there are any leaks at said gateway again, you can also pay with paypal now

Seriously? You didn't read the first line of my original post yet? Did I not predict a big freeze? I knew it would happen but I'll reiterate, I don't post things on here to get heat or rep. I post them because I would apprecaite it if someone else had posted the same. Does that make sense to you? Just because I happen to have found some good deals over the past couple of years doesn't mean I won't post something that the majority will find perplexing but possibly just one other person will find useful. Your attitude hurts my head almost as much as your avatar but I'll admit they do suit each other. Oh and the exclamation mark? It's called punctuation. Maybe you should try it sometime.

It's also obvious you don't read posts properly. I never mentioned how much beans at Lidl cost. I said that there was probably some deal for 5p OFF baked beans at Lidl. Still nice of you to try and show your superiority by mentioning that you do your food shopping at M&S - and you try to lecture people on buying overpriced goods just for a label. I won't even bother explaining about how you check what items have actually sold for on eBay rather than just what the asking price is as this is surely common knowledge. You did get me on the soundtrack CD thought! Congratulations! So I don't get a CD? Fair play but it wasn't why I bought it so no loss. Hope you've enjoyed this edition of pointless internet argument. I sure have.

because the deal you were bragging about was only 4 over the required 200, it's now dropped below 200 so you no longer have the badge, i'm guessing this is the reason anyway as i'm no badge expert. i did vote it cold myself after your moaning in this thread, guess some other people did too
