Top Ten Collector’s Editions of the Past Generation

If this generation can be remembered for one thing – and, to be honest, it will be remembered for many things – it’s the rise and escalation of the Collector’s Edition. Highly sought after and frequently snagged by vindictive eBay merchants, Collector’s Editions have always had a presence in the games market but it wasn’t until this marathon generation that they became a fixture on release calendars. From steelbooks to statues, chests to cheap crap, Collector’s Editions embody everything amazing and naff about gaming today. Here are ten of the most memorable money-vacuums to hit shelves this generation. Nail that wallet shut and tremble at their majesty: (PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Prestige/Care Package Edition...but no Fallout 3 or New Vegas Collectors editions. Much better in my opinion

Plus some of the Assassins Creed ones aren't that bad.

that million dollar saints row is stupid lol.. Who would buy that even if they had the disposable funds?

the thing Is for the amount you are paying you can get so much more
plain trip-idk
lamborgini Gallardo is like 150-200 grand
toytota prius is probably 40-30 grand

there is probably more in this trip but I could make 1 million worth me so much more than that

I find anything in a collector's edition that isn't actually related to the game(or series) in question to be pretty silly.

It was meant to be something absurd, I doubt they expected anyone to actually purchase it. More a marketing gimmick than anything.

I actually just sold my halo 3 legendary edition for $180 + on ebay. I won it from a play and win sweepstakes back when halo 3 came out. Since I already had one I never opened it. So it was sealed in my closet all these years. Pure profit. I decided to sell it since halo 3 will be dead in a couple years and it might be as collectible down the road.

I have the halo reach legendary edition and the gta4 edition with the lockbox. That's all the special editions I have.

GTA 4 is the one that i have, and it's my favorite because of the bag and lock box.
