J Station X: The pricing of the Mirror's Edge Catalyst Collector's Edition causes controversy for being too expensive. Fans say that the CE is not worth the high price.
People will vote with their wallets. I can see some of these overpriced 'collectors editions' being discounted after the game releases.
if the supply is limited it might be valued even higher. if there is quite a few the price will drop quit fast. so you take your chances. at the end of the day nobody has to buy it and it does come with a 14 inch statue.
See, this is what happens when people overrate games. The 1st Mirrors Edge wasn't that good, yet, sites overrated it. Now, they went nuts with an inflated price.
Lol, no way... The game didnt even spark on the american market from what I heard but it was a moderate success in europe and bunch of people liked it. I like it. Its not super amazing but extremely enjoyable when you get in-depth with it. This price has nothing to do with sites fanboying over the game, the statue already probably costs a bunch but they are after profits here. IMHO, you dont do collectors editions for money (considering how limited in quantities they are)... they are something nice to give for the fans.
Oh all my years collecting editions, this is not a £159.99 edition. I feel like you get more in the AC Ubisoft Store editions and they are £119.99 tops. For this to be worth the price it would need to have... A Bigger Statue The Steelbook would have much better art, not the plain one they have The full OST would be included within the Steelbook A full on artbook The Season Pass (All DLC)
Little known secret, a lot of them do. Just have to know where to look. Some editions that were $150+, can sometimes be found for under $50.
Or even just $30 if the game is bad enough: http://www.amazon.com/Alien...
Hey Christopher, did you know I was one of those (very few) idiots that bought the CE at full price? Thanks for making me feel bad (again), lol.
whens this games release date?
There are usually plenty of collector's editions available long after release, and usually half off if the game's bad or good anyway. Look at how many FF Type-0 Day One editions are floating around on eBay.
Day One Edition is not the same as Collector's Edition. I wanted to get it at Best Buy but they sold out of the Collector's Edition a long time ago.
A Day One Edition is not the same You can't find this anywhere at such a low price https://i.ytimg.com/vi/cz3N...
Just announced? Even the link he provided for the "announcement news post" is dated July 9th.
The CE was "just announced" as a UK exclusive with the retailer GAME and the backlash to its pricing is also quite recent. The CE wasn't just announced in general. That wasn't clear in the post so I have since removed "just announced" from the article.
I want this but $200 is to much. Also only see it available at GameStop. Wish I could get this at Best Buy so I'd save since i have Gamer's Club Unlocked.
The problem is, as collectors we kinda lost faith in triforce figures especially after what happened with batman.
I never buy the over-priced "Collectors edition". To me there is nothing they could pack in that is going to make it worth throwing down anywhere from $100-$250... But, if people have the cash and don't mind it... go ahead buy it. I'm not wasting my money... paying almost half of what I pay for a system....
Ha! No way am i paying $200 for a statue i dont even want.. The other swag is cool but if theres no middle $99 edition, im just buying standard.. I want this game but not that much.. I can buy a used console for that kind of cheese
$150 is my max and even then it has to have something spectacular in it (PipBoy) for me to consider it. Most statues can be found online after the games release and alot of times the CE will get discounted at a later time. While that doesnt always hold true more often than not Im comfortable taking the chance and keeping my money, I dont even buy games at full price so why would I ever consider this.
its nice but they weren't to creative with the Statue , could have done better.
$200 wow, thats clearly not worth it. Just look at it
