How long do special edition consoles stay on the shelves for?

#1JigglybuffPosted 9/18/2011 8:17:39 AM
I wanted to get both the Epic Edition and the Limited Edition console for Gears 3. And then sell the game that was in the console edition to a friend for 30 bucks, and give my older(LAUNCH CORE MODEL, STILL RUNS GREAT NO PROBLEMS SINCE ITS RELEASE PEEPS!)to my younger bro.

But I work at a supermarket in Cali. And our union just issued a 72 hour strike notice. So I can only get the Epic edition since I need to save money for bills if we do strike.

So how long do they stay on shelves? Think I can get one in a month or two?

special edition consoles usually go pretty quick

I guess it really depends on how many were produced

You arent forced to strike if an union issues notice, its your choice end of the day they dont pay the bills

I hope you aren't part of that union that wants to strike over an added $5 per week to health care.

Usually the special edition systems are pre order only at Gamestop, some times you get lucky if they have an odd number of pre orders because they ship 2 systems per box and they end up with an extra for a walk in. But once they are sold they are gone and usually do not get replenished because they are limited edition.

Unions are a pretty terrible idea.

Regardless, it depends on the game. The Gears 3 bundle probably won't last long, but at the one gamestop I go to, there is still a brand new FF13 bundle,unopened, and sitting there with a big not saying it's discounted.

Depends. I can still go into some stores around here and find a Halo Reach Limited Edition 360.

No, they're actually not a bad idea. Some aren't managed well. Some are managed really well.

I still see the final fantasy elite around and when they have them they have a lot of them.
