I picked up my Survival Edition of TLOU earlier this morning and wow, I never expected it to be so big.
That thing is HUGE! I was like "are you kidding me?! This is the Survival Edition? This is waaay bigger than I expected it to be!" Lol, seriously, the box is gigantic!
If you think the Survival Edition is big, you should see the Post-Pandemic Edition! I saw one at the midnight launch last night and it was as big as the Uncharted 3 Collector's Edition box. I'm glad I got the Survival Edition though, because the artbook is beautiful.
The statue is unbelievable! Love the hard back guide as well!
152 PS3 games - 564 PS2 games - 72 PS1 games - 202 PSP games - 11 PS Vita games
Over 1,100 games total
Went to BB 10 am, i hand the receipt, the employee @ customer service was checking out a Standard copy of the game. I tell her, you're missing a big @ss box miss, that's not my Survival Edition. She checks the receipt, checks the room behind her, goes to the gaming department, and finally goes to check the warehouse.
She comes back to me saying "We don't have your boxed Survival Edition... It seems the truck is late and we don't know what time it will arrive"
I breathe in, i exhaled out. Under my breath i said "bull$@%!!@" I tell her cancel everything, it's not your fault miss, but could you refund me my preorder money. I walk away towards the gaming section to use that reimbursed money and buy a $50 PSN card when I see another customer who looked like a deer caught in the headlights after another employee's speech.
I ask him "You pickin up what I think you're pickin up" ...."yeah they don't have it"
He takes it harder than I did, talks to the employee and says "that's some **bleep** excuse, I've waited years for this game and you're telling me there's a truck out there full of Survival editions, and it hasn't arrived"
I'm pretty d2mn sure Bestbuy sold my copy to someone online. Good thing i always have a backup plan in case it rains turd all of a sudden. Never gonna do business with BB again.
Drove to my 2nd option. Gamestop chick welcomed like i was in a 5 star hotel. "here's your copy sir" rang so nice in my ears. I sigh and I've never happily thrown money for something other than this.
