    Can't believe I'm gonna pay £130 for resident evil 6 collectors edition. The price has rocketed for all collector editions but what u get in them doesn't justify the price! Grrrr

    Valid point, I guess as I have alot of collectors stuff I just can't stop buying now. It's become a rather expensive hobby, especially from sept to November! Just having a vent!

    I probably only buy the collectors editions for the games that are my favourite (AC series mainly). I did get the Skyrim Colelctors edition and Black Ops prestige edition. I'm tempted with Black Ops 2 but I can't justify spending £160 on one game lol.

    Just out of interest how well do they hold their value? If you keep one in mint condition would it be worth more in a few years? What about beyond the life of this generation of console?

    Ac series is unbeatable for me, gutted I missed out on the first figurine though. I've ordered the freedom and join or die editions of ac 3. I got the skyrim dragon statue too, my display cabinets may need expanding. 160 for black ops 2 what's in it?

    Why not wait after release? They always turn up much cheaper. killzone 3, gears 3, black ops ones sold at game and hmv for 30-60 quid. Unless it has a genuine limited production run and I'd take the gamble.

    You're not a proper collector if you are not getting the RE6 leather coat edition.

    I'm just not into collector's editions of games at all. I suppose the games that come packaged with a making-of DVD or a CD soundtrack might be worth getting but not at the prices I've seen. I can't even justify the cost of a game alone without all the bells and whistles.

    Fallout New Vegas sold out pre-release and never came back into stock, made a change for it to actually be limited.

    Ok ? you guys mentioned two products out of how many collector editions released in the last two years ? The point I was trying to make is that this one it's unlikely to sell out before a reduction.

    Well I have to say that the AC3 Join or Die edition has left me very dissapointed. The round shiny silver object that was in the promotional material is far removed from the hunk of metal that i found inside the box upon opening. anyone else unimpressed or is it just me expecting too much (or really believing that what you see is what you get).
    :(
