Did Sony make too many KZ3: CE or did no one buy them?

It's closing in on 2 years of this game being out, and this stupid Helghast Edition can still be seen. Gamestop is still selling them for 40 bucks, did Sony overestimate how many of these things were gonna sell or did no one want the CE?

I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.

I literally see every CE still available for purchase online or in stores, there are so many this gen that they are always over-produced

For some reason I seem to recall KZ3 selling a lot worse than what was expected. Not bad sales mind you, but less than KZ2.

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

It might have, I don't believe it sold so bad where all of these CEs are sitting everywhere. You can go to the Gamestop website and type in your zip code to see how many are around. All 8 Gamestops around me have them in stock. Not to mention the Best Buys.

I have to feel they overestimated people's interest in a CE.

But not really... ww sales have them about neck and neck. Kz2 out pacing it by 200, 000 units or less.

Nope. In Australia they had 2 in a metal tin as a LE. It never stopped being in stock until they stopped selling new XB games. Halo 3 had the helmet.
