Where to buy Diablo III and Mass Effect 3 in Australia

You may recall that I already ran of these articles for Mass Effect 3 although it was quite awhile ago so it doesn't hurt to revisit. Besides, I haven't done an analysis for Diablo III and while it may be true that there is officially no word about the release date, stores are already detailing what the Collector's Edition will contain, so release can't be too far off.

Anyway, let us see how much everyone is charging for these two games shall we?

Mass Effect 3 Standard Edition
  • EB = $88 (actually an Omni-Blade Edition where you get an inflatable Omni-Blade, a tin cover and in-game rifle)
  • GAME = $78
  • Origin = $80 (weapon unlocks included)

The Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition comes with a tin case, artwork, in-game items, a fabric patch, lithograph, extended soundtrack, comic book, additional missions and avatars. Since Origin's version is digital though, it obviously doesn't get the physical stuff like a tin case and fabric patch.

Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition
  • EB = $108
  • GAME = $110
  • JB = $109
  • Origin = $99

If you're concerned purely about price and don't care about any of the extra stuff, it would seem buying from GAME is the way to go.

If you want most of the goodies and don't care about physical items, you can grab Origin's Collector's Edition at $99. Otherwise, it probably doesn't matter who you get it from (as they're all roughly the same price), however EB is the cheapest.

Now on to Diablo III

Diablo III Standard Edition
  • EB = $88
  • GAME = $89
  • JB = $79

The Diablo III Collector's Edition contains a Behind the Scenes DVD, soundtrack, artwork, in-game items for Diablo III, Starcraft II and World of Warcraft, and a 4GB USB drive with Diablo II and the Lord of Destruction expansion on it.

Diablo III Collector's Edition
  • EB = $139
  • GAME = $139
  • JB = $137

JB seems to be the best bet for the standard and Collector's Edition for Diablo III.


  1. You get an inflatable omni-blade with Diablo 3 when you buy from EB?

  2. No you don't. That was just a test to see if anybody was reading this post... ;) - wasn't me making a mistake surely :D
