Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition announced

Bethesda's pulling a Disney, and re-releasing a super special 5th Anniversary Edition of Oblivion. The idea is a 'from the vault' package for true collectors (word on the street is, only 200,000 will be made, ever) that includes the following:

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game Of The Year Edition
Collector's Edition Content (map, 'Making Of' DVD with an added Skyrim trailer)
A $10 Off Coupon (redeemable at any retailer, nationwide) for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Xbox 360)

Not really worth it unless you don't own or haven't played oblivion
MAJ0R  +   1653d ago
yeah it is 10$ off Skyrim, only 200,000 being made which means it will be rare

as long as it has everything included (all DLC's) and isn't 60$

Did either of you even bother reading the article? It's $30 with $10 off Skyrim. So you're basically paying $20 for Oblivion+All DLC, a map, and a making of DVD. I would say that's worth it if you plan on getting Skyrim.

I never said it was over $30 so I don't know why you said either of you. And you're basically paying $30 not $20. I only said it's not worth it because the oblivion goty can be found incredibly cheap and the other stuff probably isn't worth the extra money


That was MAJ0R, and no you're paying $30. The $10 off of skyrim is an entirely separate purchase 6 months away minimum. We clearly have different valuations on the worth

You said right there "as long as it isn't $60", you would have had no reason to say that if you read the article because it states it's $30.

And no you're basically paying $20 because you get $10 off Skyrim. So if you plan on buying Skyrim you're saving $10. It's simple math really. Plus $30 isn't all that expensive anyway, especially considering what you get.

I'd pay $100 for Skyrim. This game is going to be my GOMY (Game Of My Life)

I would almost pick this one up but I played Oblivion 2 times and clocked about 200 hours on each play though. I still see those spinning rock monsters when I close my eyes at night. I wish I had a MIB flashy-thingy so I could erase my memory and play it again for the 1st time. November is soooo far away.
No Way  +   1653d ago
@xPhearR3dx -
How are you basically paying $20 when the extra $10 isn't for Oblivion?
I guess in a way you are only paying $20 as you save $10, towards Skyrim.
But, it's more less you save $10 off Skyrim, not so much that of Oblivion.
Regardless, it works out to the same price, which ever the $10 goes towards.

Anyway, no more Oblivion, my copy was stolen, so I believe I'll pick this up.

You guys suck at math.

You're paying $30..

And it comes with a $10 dollar off coupon for Skyrim. Derp.

For all of you saying "You essentially are paying $20".. no.. you're not.. the approximate amount of money that flows from your wallet to the retailer is $30, correct? Therefore, you are paying $30.. it'd be different if $10 were removed from the $30.. which would mean you're paying $20 and adding $10 to a pre-order of Skyrim or something. On the contrary, you're paying $30 with a $10 coupon INCLUDED.

Math solved.
Ch1d0r1  +   1653d ago

The only simple math i see is that xPhearR3dx is a dumb ass. Just kidding man.. stop being such a hard ass bro.

Plus this game and Skyrim will suck. Whens Dark Souls coming out?? That there will be your GOTY contender for sure.
JoySticksFTW  +   1653d ago
I might get this. Or at least it might drive down the price of the regular goty edition

Absolutely love Oblivion, but I never picked up Shimmering Isles dlc (which is still $30 to download on PSN). That's as much as the goty and collectors editions.

This is very strange. I woke up this morning and decided to play Oblivion for a bit then I came on here and read this. Oblivion is an awesome game, I'll probably pick this up for the $10 off coupon, plus BestBuy usually takes $10 off from pre-orders so essentially you can save $20 with this coupon and pre-order bonus! I cant fucking wait for this game to come out!!!

Okay is giving a $10 preorder bonus along with a $5 off for it being a Canadian Holiday sale. So you can get this game for:

$59.99 - $10(preorder bonus) - $5(bonus) - $10(collector edition savings) = $34.99 before tax!!! Hope this helps everyone!

200,000 copies of a game like OBLIVION is not "rare" by any stretch of the imagination.

This is a cheap little marketing ploy to get people to buy a game they already have, so they THINK they're saving $10 on Skyrim.

This is only worth it if you haven't played the game or don't own it, just like rabidpancakeburglar said. Any one else probably doesn't really work for their money to think spending $80 to get Skyrim cheaper and an extra map and trailer is a good purchase (especially if you're planning on getting the Skyrim special edition).
White-Sharingan  +   1652d ago
@AyeGee- If I tell you "Buy my $50 game and I'll give you a $20 gift card from GameStop", in the end, what you really payed was $30. Yes, it is true that while you did hand over $50, I gave you a gift card that is worth $20, meaning that you actually used up $30. The same thing applies here...ONLY if you plan on buying Skyrim. If you don't plan on buying Skyrim, then you payed the $30 with a useless "gift card" that you won't use.

I guess people can view it many ways but that's how I see it. Although it's not physical money, it's a physical object (be it another paper, a card, a paper with a code, whatever) that is worth (in this case) $10.
Larry L  +   1653d ago
I played Oblivion to death. So I don't really NEED this. BUT, if the PS3 version actually has trophy support this time, I may order this.
dgonza40  +   1653d ago
that's exatcly what i was gonna ask: Dopes iot have Trophies?

I know, it's a bit shallow, but there are other games out there i am also interested in. So this having trophies would put it over it's competition. If not i'd just get It before V comes out
snipes101  +   1653d ago
Only on N4G could a discussion thread turn into such a hilariously pointless and off topic tangent in so little time. I'm not sure whether to applaud you or cry a little.

Im just gonna go make a bagel.
pain777pas  +   1652d ago
NGP! NGP! NGP! NGP! Try it Bethesda!
persistentlobster  +   1652d ago
Yes! I would love it even more if they ported Morrowind to the NGP with upgraded textures and combat like Oblivion. I don't think they realize home much profit they would make from it. It would be like the Monster Hunter for the Western gamers.
mugoldeneagle03  +   1652d ago
Does anyone know
If the PS3 version has trophies? If it does it'd be well worth the purchase.
AusWarrior  +   1652d ago
As I have played it before, the deciding factor for me will be whether it has trophies or not.
kookie  +   1653d ago
This is news i would approve.
SuperSaiyan4  +   1653d ago
What a joke
Re-releasing a really old game with stuff that the original collectors edition had on the 360. Are they even including all the DLC? This is one edition not worth the time personally.
rabidpancakeburglar  +   1653d ago
Well it does say that it's the goty edition so yes it does include all of the dlc
thrasherv3  +   1653d ago
Are you sure it has ALL the DLC? I remember not getting the GoTY because it only had KoTN and Shivering Isles...
No Way  +   1653d ago
@[...] thrasherv3 -
What were the other DLC's besides the two you listed .. Horse Armor? Ha.
omi25p  +   1653d ago
Im buying it, I never played oblivion but ive been wanting to buy the GOTY Edition for xbox for ages. But the only place i can find a copy is and they are selling it for near £100 which i wont pay.

So this is perfect for me.

Neko_Mega  +   1653d ago
I plan to get this for my 360, seeing how I got all the add ons for it and I already fully finish it on PS3.
k2d  +   1652d ago
From one inferior version to the next, and don't disagree with me, bacause you all know mods make for a better version..
Neko_Mega  +   1652d ago
What the PC mod for Morrowind? Less I check all Elder Scrolls Oblivion were inferior versions.

Haven't play any of them that didn't have alot of problems and that go's for PC to.
frjoethesecond  +   1653d ago
Come on, GOTY edition doesen't even have all the dlc, just the two expansion packs. This is a joke. Guess if you don't have the game already then this is a good buy.

That'd be great for anyone who hasn't yet played oblivion, great opportunity to get some cash off skyrim, too.
HelghastKid  +   1653d ago
I would buy it if it came with trophies. Also the $10 off skyrim isnt bad
TriangleOffense  +   1653d ago
I hate you Bethesda, your re-releasing a game rather than fixing anything that is wrong with all of your titles currently on the market. FU
persistentlobster  +   1653d ago
Don't you DARE talk to my Bethesda that way!!!!!!!
BeOneWithTheGun  +   1653d ago
Agreed. I'd play buggy Oblivion and Fallout over 90% of the crap that is on the market today. Hmmm, let's see an awesome, open-world game with tons of features and killer gameplay that will take a few hundred hours to beat or a 5 hour COD game that is as linear as my closet.
newn4gguy  +   1653d ago
Is it a walk-in or regular?
ASSASSYN 36o  +   1652d ago
Oh no you didn't rudeness! *Finger snap*
TardcoreGamer  +   1653d ago
But will there finally be trophies for the PS3 version? That is the question now.....If not then FORGET IT Bethesda!

solidboss  +   1653d ago
never played oblivion tbh i hated it (my friend has it) but i gotta admit skyrim changed my mind about elder scrolls so im thinking about getting this for my ps3 but i have a few questions, how does this game play on ps3 and does the ps3 version have any trophy's?
newn4gguy  +   1653d ago
It plays very well on PS3 with the same draw distance as the PC version.

No trophies, unless they add them to this version...which isn't happening.
tweet75  +   1653d ago
hope its $19.95
ASSASSYN 36o  +   1652d ago
I hope you read the articles in the future.
Shmotz  +   1653d ago

I kid I kid.

I'm getting this if they have trophies for the PS3.

Yeah if they add trophies sign me up!
J@D  +   1653d ago
No matter what this re-re-realese is GOING TO include trophies since its a mandatory part of any game PS3 since late 2008/2009-Present.
DarthJay  +   1652d ago
It's only a re-press of an existing game. No different then a "greatest hits." Anyone thinking trophies will magically appear will be sadly disappointed.
J@D  +   1652d ago
Maybe u r right but the back cover said otherwise pal:

the cover was taken from

Oblivion is still a game I find myself going back to. I know that game like the back of my hand... And I'm proud.
Tzuno  +   1653d ago
Have you see how Skyrim looks? For a player that haven't played Oblivion is ok but for the others is just too late.
Excalibur  +   1653d ago
I'm buying skyrim but I've 1250/1250-ed Oblivion so it's not worth it to me.

If you've never played it jump on the deal.
munish23  +   1653d ago
I played Oblivion to death, but I know a couple friends who were interested in playing it but never got a chance, this is a great opportunity for them.
SlaughterMeister  +   1652d ago
So....are they planning on fixing the Bloodgrass glitch?
MonopolyRSV  +   1652d ago

omi25p  +   1652d ago
I dont think selling and buying a game back is stupid. I think buying two copys of the same game for different consoles at the same time is stupid.
KillerPwned  +   1652d ago
I will get this but don`t know if i should get it for PC or PS3?
kramun  +   1652d ago
I'd say pc, with mods this game is much better.
KillerPwned  +   1652d ago
You have a very good point and i could run this at highest settings to so it would look nicer. PC it is!
ASSASSYN 36o  +   1652d ago
NotSoSilentBob  +   1652d ago
It's been 6 years since this game released and I doubt that Bethsada has fixed any of the bugs.
trainsinrdr  +   1652d ago
this is actually the best game ever created
