Do You Buy Collector’s Editions?

TGC writes: Every major release nowadays comes with some sort of special edition to help bring in that extra bit of money...It’s all fancy stuff, and majority of collectors editions are certainly worth the money they are sold at.

However, this is the problem – cost.

I'm a gamer, I'll eat my own faeces if it means I can get a cool special edition.
Although I do that anyway.

Heck yeah. I've got my pre-order in for the Ultimate Loot Chest. Had no idea it would be limited. It's times like that that makes it all worthwhile. Forza's CE is usually limited as well.
The rest winds up being found much cheaper months later, but I don't really buy for the value. I buy to collect.

I've bought a lot
-Assassins Creed
-Assassins Creed 2
-Arkham Asylum
-Assassins Creed Brotherhood
-Infamous 2
-Arkham City
-Uncharted 3
-Mass Effect 3

It depends on what it contains... im a sucker for statues so thats why I bought most of these. A lot of people complain its a waste of space/ useless trinkets... but to me its kind of a hobby collecting these things, kind of like how people collect stamps/coins. I think its awesome, because each statue I have reminds me of the great times I had with each game

Not a chance, just a bunch of little trinkets that's worth about 25 cents, that you lose or clutters your house up and that you won't care about 2 months after you got it.

I was offered 40 bucks for drakes belt buckle,
And 60 for the cole statue.
Something is worth what someone is willing to pay for it

A friend offered me 100 bucks for the ACB jack in the box

They do add up over time

I had bought one and made a $200 profit from it ;) The Crysis 2 Nano ed.

It depends on the company and what you want. I usually get NISA, Atlus, XSEED and other companies that publish japanese games. They usually have a soundtrack, artbook and other stuff, but what I like most are the outer boxes.
I kind of dislike Capcom USA's collector's edtions so I don't normally go for them unless there has been a significant price drop.

Only ones i have bought are GT5, MGS Peace walker , MGS HD collection and MGS 4
