I think the Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest is the best CE this year...

I wouldn't really class Halo 4s as a CE since it's mostly DLC...I mean compare that with Borderlands 2s or Assassin Creed 3s CE. Halo 4 should of had a Legendary edition :|

Yeah disappointed there was no Halo 4 Legendary Edition, it seems like most games come with DLC that will be eventually available to other players anyway.

I know right, i's not like it wouldn't sell

I mean the Limited Edition comes with a few bits and bobs but it comes with stuff like

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
The Making of Forward Unto Dawn
Special Featurette: Bringing Gaming to Reality.

I mean they really should be on the disc as unlockables, not wasting money putting them on seperate discs for us to fill the so called "CE" up. I mean you could watch that on Youtube for free anyway.

I'm only getting it because of the steelbook, it's really the only colectable thing you get with it with actual value.

The Legendary edition should of came with a high quality Cortana replica or a wearable Master Chief helmet.

I think they didn't make one this time around because they don't sell that well as they want them to. Both Halo 3 and Reach legendary editions were in stores for a long time, and many stores had to eventually just do a clearance item on them, sometimes selling the legendary edition for as low as 30 bucks.

Personally I think they should just make it an actual limited edition, like Borderlands 2 ULC, and also only make ONE CE instead of 3 different kinds.

depends who you ask maybe. personally i could care less about a freaking Bust or Bobble Head......................... actually the bobble heads are pretty sweet lol

The Assassin's Creed Freedom one is good, but why doesn't it come with the Join or Die medallion? As the premium LEbit should have everything the others have and more?

Bobbleheads seem to be all the rage these days.

Honestly, and mind you I'm not trying to provoke any arguments here, but the Halo 4 Limited Edition was a huge letdown to me. Aside from a couple of unwanted emblems and armor sets (which no one is going to use) I cannot help but feel disappointed at the offering. The maps will come in time, I can snag 'Forward Unto Dawn' off the marketplace for a few bucks, and the UNSC briefing packet is something that I'll look at once. I did the same thing with Halsey's journal. I just felt like they could have expanded the selection a little more. Perhaps a miniature sized figurine of Master Chief in the cryo-tube? I don't know. I'm still looking forward to the game none the less. I just hope that for Halo 5, they consider a Legendary Edition in the 125-150$ price range.

So tempted to buy all those limited editions (except Borderlands 2, which I already have fully paid off), but the problem is, a lot of these collector's editions drop down in price so much and in so little time, I often end up getting burned.

But in some rare instances, the collector's editions that I DO opt out of, always end up being MORE expensive as the months drag on. FML.
