Videogameszone have chosen their favorite collector's editions of this year's video games ... so far. God of War 3, Bioshock 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction are the top-3 favorites.
One more incoming:
Ubisoft sure know how to make Collectors Editions.
I have the Alan Wake one and it's of a very high quality. I would love to have the Splinter Cell one. I have the regular game. Maybe it will be really cheap by now. One of the best games this gen. Alan Wake was a great buy. The game will make a great franchise.
Starcraft 2 expensive edition will be great, blizzard art books are just amazing, if you ever bought a bliz collectors edition you will know what i mean :)
I picked up the Bioshock 2 collectors at best buy for $65.99 about 2 months after release of the game. I thought it was one of the better collector's editions I've ever purchased. -CadDad
Halo: Reach Legendary Edition is most likely going to be the next collecor's edition I buy.
no splinter cell convictions special edition should not be on this list, the statue looks like it was coloured by a 4 year old, its crap.
I've missed out on the Uncharted 2 collector edition, would be cool to have that dagger..got the GOW ultimate edition though. Will be getting the GT5 collector's edition as well.
The uncharted 2 one wasn't for sale if i remember correctly, you could only win it from various competitions or in giveaways, didn't stop it from selling for 3-4k each on ebay though lol. Definitely will be getting the GT5 collector edition, and I hear there's an even bigger one coming out for GT5 but no details yet.
But I think all of them are awesome Blazblue: Calamity Trigger, Limited Edition: First Run, it was the same price as the regular game, it came with the soundtrack, and a bonus DVD, I love it Bioshock 2: The box it came in is probably my favorite thing, very useful, The soundtrack for 1 on CD was cool, but the Vynil Record was better, The artbook was amazing, I actually have that mounted in my den for decoration, and the lithographs were very nice as well (if you have a blacklight, they have secret messages on them). Cool thing is I only paid $60 dollars for mine because my buddy bought his at launch and didn't want ti anymore. ^.^ Splinter Cell Conviction: Bought it from the Ubisoft store for $35 when it was on sale, the case is nice, as is the artbook, however the USB flashdrive dosen't work, so I guess it's not as good as it couldn've been, still cool though. Resident Evil 5: Bought it out of a Pawn shop for $30, and it still had all of the stuff in it. I wear the Necklace everywhere I go, and the Chris Redfield figurine sits atop the bookcase in my Den. Sadly the backpack it came with was pretty shitty, but eh, se la vie. The Metal Case and BSAA patch were cool too, as was the special features DVD. Alan Wake: Bought it from the same guy who didn't want this Bioshock 2 edition for $60. The Case is probably the coolest I've seen in a long time, and the Alan Wake files book is a very interesting read. The Soundtrack is probably my favorite thing about it, its so well put together, and the special features DVD is nice also. The Next One's going in my Collection are the Halo Reach Special (not legendary) edition, and the Fallout New Vegas Collectors Edition, if CoD:BO puts out a Special Edition I might get that too.... My Goodness it's a great year for gaming, as well as Collectors Editions!
The only real collectors edition I've ever bought is the Fallout 3 one, which I don't regret, because the lunchbox and bobblehead look pretty bitchin' on my game shelf. I'm tempted to go for AC: Brotherhood, Fallout: NV or Fable 3 ones.
