Many blockbuster games are lined up for release from September through December 2010 for the holiday season.

Game publishers are going all out to offer tempting Collector’s Edition and Limited Edition games. From $79.99 to as high as $149.99 for one specially packaged game, choose wisely and see which one(s) you have the shelf space for. From the uber cool and creative to the bizarre, check out the offerings in the Collector’s Edition games coming soon! (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Fallout: New Vegas, Gran Turismo 5, Halo: Reach, Industry, LittleBigPlanet 2, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

i cant believe theyre not packaging the official logitech driving force gt wheel with GT5.
juniordee  +   1552d ago
You do realize that wheel is like $150 right? That means they would have to give away GT5 for free and lose over $50 on every purchase.

I can't believe you want a new game + a $150 wheel for just $100...and complain about it.

actually its $130, and when did i ever say i wanted both for $100???? they could sell both for full retail and id still pay it ($190). it just seems odd they wouldnt even give us the option, being its the official wheel of gt5.

Wow, these look really nice. Assassins Creed Brotherhood, GT5, Fable 3, LBP2, Halo: Reach, Fallout and more all look like extremely high quality collectors editions.

Call of Duty Black Ops prestige edition: Looks cool, but eh, when am I ever gonna use the vehicle? Hardened edtion for me.

Fallout: New Vegas Collectors Edition: Oh yeah, that shits mine.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Collectors Edition: That shit's mine.

Castlevania Limited Edition: Eh....art book and CD, file this under a maybe.

Star Wars TFU2 Collectors Edition: Yeah, I'm a slut for Star Wars, and the Starkiller USB stick is fucking adorable I wanna cuddle it to death like it's a Sackboy Plushie.

Dead Rising 2 Collectors Edition: What, do I look like someone who doesn't want a syringe pen and a Dead Rising movie?

LBP2 Collectors edition: Oh shit.....they actually have one.....I'm gonna snuggle the shit out of that Sackboy plushie.

GT5 Collectors Edition: Just a car, eh...maybe.

Halo: Reach Legendary Edtion: Already got two paid off, one is a gift, one is for me. The decision is easy.

Fable 3 Collectors Edition: That Shit's mine.

Goldeneye: I wish it came with the Golden Gun periph I saw a while ago, but that was probably fake. However, I don't have a classic controller, and I can get a gold one. Whoooooooop!!!!

PC Games: YEah, my rig is shit I won't be getting those games anytime soon. I have to get DC Universe for PS3.

Steelbooks should become a CE standard.
BX81  +   1552d ago
The only one I have pre ordered is the Reach Legendary. It's actually my first collectors edition. I don't like LBP but the CE looks cool as hell as well as the one for A. Creed.
darren_poolies  +   1551d ago
The Halo: Reach Xbox 360 Limited Edition system looks god-awful but the LBP2, DR2, GT5, F:NV and AC:B Collector's Edition look pretty cool, I may consider buying some of them. Defiantly the LBP2 one (for my gf) and the AC:B one (for me). :)

Oh and I'll probably get the COD:BO Hardend Edition for the 4 extra maps, medal and steel bookcase but I may consider the Prestige Edition instead :)
