If you’re interested in buying The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition ahead of the game’s release date next year you’ll need to keep your eyes on stock as we push through the fall.
The Last of Us Part 2 finally has a release date and Naughty Dog’s new entry in the series is headed to the PlayStation 4 on February 21st, 2020.
Now that the game has an official release date retailers are selling several versions of the game including a standard edition, Special Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, Collector’s Edition, and an intriguing Ellie Edition that comes with an assortment of bonus items.
The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition retails for $229.99 which is more than triple the cost of the standard version of the game. That said, it’s an investment many people appear willing to make.
The bundle has only been on sale for a short time and it’s already difficult to find. Some retailers are already out of stock and we suspect it will be hard to find in the buildup to the game’s release next year. Difficult, but not impossible.
If you don’t want to pay more than $229.99 for the bundle and want the game ASAP, you should pre-order the bundle when you can. If you can’t find it in stock or can’t afford it right now, you’ll need to track stock in the weeks ahead.
In this guide we’ll show you how to do that.
How to Find The Last of Us Ellie Edition in Stock
Your first option is to track stock manually. Head to the bundle’s page at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, or your favorite retailer and bookmark the page. You might even want to add a shortcut in your browser of choice for quick access. So that’s one option.
Your best bet is to use a tracking site like NowInStock. The site will allow you to easily track the stock without having to visit retail websites every day.
First head on over to NowInStock’s The Last of Us Part 2 page. This page shows the bundle’s stock history at various retailers and it updates every few minutes giving you a look at its current status.
If you don’t want to open up your browser every time you want to check, you can set up an alert that will send you an email, text or browser notification whenever Ellie Edition stock is available. Here’s how to do that:
- Register for a free account at NowInStock.
- Check your inbox for a verification email and click the correct link to verify.
- Go back to the The Last of Us Part 2 NowInStock page.
- Click Add/Manage alerts in the right corner of the screen.
- Add an item to track it.
Once you add the correct item, you’ll get a little menu where you can select to get text, email and Browser alerts. These are free unless you get carrier text message charges.
You can also check resellers like eBay and Craigslist, but you probably won’t be able to find it for less than $229.99 through one of these sites before launch.
We’re already seeing the Ellie Edition show up on eBay for $300+. So if you want to avoid paying exorbitant fees to scalpers, keep an eye out for additional stock as we push toward the game’s release date.
