Buyer Beware: The Pitfalls Of The Bioshock Infinite Special Edition

GP writer Jared discusses why consumers should be cautious of the statue in the Bioshock Infinite Special Edition. (BioShock: Infinite, Culture, PS3, Xbox 360)

What I'm not happy about with this edition is this

"A 25 millimeter, resin-cast Handyman miniature from the upcoming BioShock Infinite board game by Plaid Hat Games, makers of Summoner Wars"

I don't want part of a board game I'm not going to buy in this, I'd rather have a steelbook then that. Seriously all CE these days should have a steelbook with them.

Agreed and not every game needs a collectors editions. Now a days they say this collectors edition will go fast of ul for it to get a huge price drop in 4 months and be at every store shelf

Max Payne 3 is the latest one

The thing is it depends....some CE go out of stock and go for a ton of money online....others are there for ages.

I never can wait because I'm scared that they will be out of stock. However I got lucky with the Halo Reach one because GAME had one left and it was only £45 and that was the Legendary edition.

While the statue is impressive it doesn't warrant the price tag IMO. Even with all the extra stuff. A good bit of digital content, and some marketing stuff for a completely different product, which we get to pay for.

This is one I may pick up if the price goes down, if not then oh well.

I used to be like you, worried that it would inflate in price quickly if I didn't get one right away, but this generation you'd still save more money waiting and seeing and buying them cheaper, since a majority of them do go down. I don't mind buying the reasonably priced ones, or real limited editions day one.

In the original announcement, they said there would be assembly required, which pretty much destroys whatever concern Jared has here. I mean, the entirety of his article is built on the belief that they're shipping this complete, with wings sprawled out. That's not happening, so sit tight!

This has to be the most moronic article I have ever seen. Come on man. If you did your research and not base the article on past occurrences you would know that the wings are not assembled in the box. You have to put the wings on after you open it. It will be fine.

You don't even need to do research, just look at the box it comes on in the picture its obvious that it doesn't fit with the wings stretched.

I'm pretty sure the holes in the wings are bullet holes..and supposed to be there...
