A few of the upcoming releases have collectors editions.
I saw this after I had already pre-ordered my game (at a decent price below retail mind you) and then was like. Oh damn if I would have waited I could of pre-ordered the collectors edition...and then I thought...why?
I have collectors editions.
Perfect Dark Zero, Prey, Lost Planet , Oblivion, Need For Speed Carbon (Some I did pre order and therefore paid full price for)
And not just 360 Games....
DVDs (In special fancy tin or wooden boxes chock full of junk)
King Kong (The original) , WickerMan (The original) Forbidden Planet, Blade Runner Ultimate (Haven't got yet)
All 3 Guild Wars (Even tho I have yet to even play Factions or Nightfall since I got the 360)
I keep thinking to myself, I need to get all my collectors editions out and look through all the shit. All the little figures, all the books, all the maps, the reproduction lobby cards, the calendars, flipping my reproduction of of the Septim, while listening to game soundtracks and watching "Making of...." DVDs. It would probably take hours of my time.
Needless to say...I haven't yet.
So I'm wondering to myself, why do I care that BioShock and Two Worlds both have Collector's editions?
I just can't justify losing the great deal I got. ($45 for Two Worlds pre-order)
Especially since not only would I lose the $15 discount, I'd have to fork over $10 more.
Yet my ears still perk up when I hear collectors edition, because I just know one day I'm going to want to look at all that great stuff.
Does anyone else buy into these things?
If so what is your favorite types of extra's?
For me it's when they include soundtrack CD's I think probably because that's the one extra I do actually tend to use as background music while working or whatever. Hmmmm Miniature Robby the Robot is awfully handy to have around the house as well.
