EA: We’re Not Making Any More Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector’s Editions
Electronic Arts says it won’t be making any more of those Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector’s Editions, and many stores in the U.S. are already sold out — so if you want one, better start hitting eBay, looking at all your local shops, or consigning yourself to a digital download.
Already, the Collector’s Edition is sold out in a lot of stores. On Amazon.com, the Xbox 360 collector’s edition is out; you might still find some luck with the Playstation 3 version, though. If you can find the N7 edition, it’ll run you about $80.
Despite complaints on the BioWare forum, EA maintains that it actually cannot have more ME3 CEs made before the launch of the game. What’s more, if you wanted one so bad, you should have pre-ordered like months ago, you silly, irresponsible child.
“Sorry, there simply cannot be any more physical CEs made before launch,” wrote BioWare community coordinator Chris Priestly.
“The items included in the physical edition cannot be made in time for launch. Sorry, it will not happen. This is why, back in November, I started warning people that the CE would run out.”
On the plus side (kind of), you can still get the digital N7 edition from Origin.
