Being in New Zealand and ordering from EB games, I think it will be interesting to see what the prices are that have been charged.
I can't recall mine total cost off the top of my head, but I know I owe them like NZ$114 still.

When I put my deposit down it was $144 Aus. So I owe $94 AUD. In NZD that would be about $115.

Note: JB hi fi have actually been dropping the price of the standard edition but I wouldnt get your hopes up that the collectors will be cheaper. There are reports in the US that some people who pre-ordered the collectors have been sent emails saying that they can no longer get it. Here's hoping we get ours no problem.

How much did you put down as a deposit?

They were asking for a minimum of $50 which is what turned me off ordering from them. They couldn't promise me a CE but wanted me to put down $50 and they weren't able to tell me if I had got one or not before it would have been too late to pre-order one from someone else.

So I walked away and pre-ordered from MA, paid $199. At the time EB were asking $223.

EDIT: If Mighty Ape tell me they can't provide me with a CE (after just being charged for it) I shall reach a new level of rage. Considering I contacted them in Feb asking if my order in Oct '11 guaranteed me a CE, to which they answered yes.

Yep.

EB Games NZ (at least in my area) are pretty damned useless when it comes to getting information out of them. It depends on who I ask. They seem to fish information out of different buckets.

I'm pretty sure I should get my CE from Mighty Ape. They've not told me otherwise yet and as I said, they confirmed I would be getting one a few months back. I just hope they don't go back on their word.

$140 AUD is around $180 NZD.

What really gets me is that so many of them have been sold to people who just resell them at inflated prices. I was looking through ebay today and saw one where the seller's pickup instructions were to meet right outside the store they pre-ordered it from, easy $100 profit I suppose but damn it makes it harder for actual players to get them.

There's so many CE threads I thought putting it in this one would be as good as the next.

So, it looks like Mighty Ape have more CE's in stock due to people canceling. Yesterday you were unable to put the CE in your 'trolley' in order to purchase it. Today it has returned the 'add to trolley' button.

I know of a few people who have canceled their CE copy so you could be in luck. MA ship to both Aus and NZ however I don't think those in Aus would get their copy release day.
