    Default Just how "limited" is the RE5 limited edition guide?

    The MGS4 one is near impossible to find now. IIRC its the same company that made the RE5 one, so I'd guess probably fairly limited.

    They didn't make none = They made at least one.

    My LE guide was shipped out by Amazon last week. I think it was only $20.
    Should be here by tomorrow.

    I think I need it to find all the emblems. I've got 25 but a couple of levels I've repeated a few times just to find them and damn... where the f**k are they?!

    I recall reading that it was a single print run, so they wont be making any more after they sell out too.

    Guess they finally figured theres not much point in keeping guides in circulation, if anyone wants a walkthrough nowadays they go online, only people that really buy them are the collectors.

    Those Piggyback guides are exceptional. I've been buying them when possible for years... but they don't produce many guides overall (maybe 2-3 games get a guide a year). But they're always very detailed, well designed, and have good features and behind the scenes materials.

    Was quite surprised but kinda glad to see Prima team up with them last year for releasing their big profile guides in the US.

    I got one when I picked up RE5 at GameStop... but if they're so limited, I don't want to open it! DX Maybe I should dish out the $20 for another one. One for use, one for collection.

    Come to think of it, I bought the LoZ: Twilight Princess Collector's Edition guidebook last summer and I haven't unwrapped it yet. Awesome. Can't wait to try and track down another one when I got that one in South Carolina and I'm in Michigan. D:

    PiggyBack guides are the only ones I'd bother buying these days. As someone mentioned, you can get these guides online within a few clicks, but the amount of extra content they put in is always worth the pick up price alone. The Metal Gear Solid 2-4 and Silent Hill 4 guides had a ton of bonus material, and I love the additional pieces from this book, such as the beta images and interviews. Really great stuff.

    If it's by the same company that did 4's then I may be tempted to buy it, the guide I have for 4 is fantastic.

    I got the standard edition (italian language) today, it's phenomenal!
    So i've decided to preorder also the LE guide from Play.com, i heard it comes with a calendar and 20 addition pages.

    I ordered it online from Amazon for $20. It's on it's way. Not sure yet if I will open it.

    Like another poster said I have the MGS4 LE and that one is a great collector's item so I am hoping this will be as well.
