This will sure be popular but as much I need skyrim I dont buy collectors editions ever.

T-K47x2266d ago

Same, as much as I love the game I just wouldn't pay that much more just for a few extra things, I always get tempted by the figure but I just don't care for the extra dvds and artbooks.

Ch1d0r12266d ago

Wait this means i could almost buy 3 copies of Dark Souls Collector's Edition. Dark Souls it is...

jeseth2265d ago

$150?

For a Dragon Statue and an Art Book?

And I thought the Prestige Edition of COD was rediculous.

I like Collectors Editions but this price is pretty hefty for what you're getting.

snipes1012266d ago

I just want to watch the behind the scenes footage...I could care less about the statue or art book. Why can't they do a middle version like COD does? Regular, limited, collectors editions or something like that?

I rarely buy collector's editions either trainsinrdr.

Andronix2266d ago

There are some massive fans of the Elder Scrolls who don't have the money to pay over 3x as much for a statue.

I would seriously love the art book but can't afford this. :(

DaTruth2266d ago

Everybody wants the art books, but few want a stupid collectible figure.

That's cool if it's your thing, but it sucks that you have to pay so much extra for the artbook, because there's a statue you never wanted!

snipes1012266d ago

@truth...

I just want the DVD. I don't need any of the other stuff.

ironcreed2265d ago

Buy the regular edition, buy art book later on ebay and then watch the making of DVD all you want shortly after launch on Youtube. Problem solved and money saved.

snipes1012265d ago

@iron...

Never...fucking...thought of that haha good call.

I'm surprised that the collectors edition doesn't include a silly hat for Team Fortress 2.

emekcrash2266d ago

I don't have that kind of money. Oh well.

lastdual2266d ago

Yeah, at $150 it's a hard sell for those of us who aren't dying for the statue. A $100 edition with just the art book and making-of DVD would be nice.

DeleteThisxx2266d ago

You'd pay 100 bucks for an art book and making of DVD? Wow, lol.

lastdual2266d ago (Edited 2266d ago )

@ProjectSiK: Well it is a 200 page art book, so an extra $40 for that and the DVD doesn't sound unreasonable.

Now an extra $90 for that stuff plus the statue . . . that's a bit much for me.

da_2pacalypse2266d ago

This content is really worth only the $99 price tag here. I mean considering collectors editions like halo reach that came with not only a pretty big statue, but also a ton of stuff worth of content in books and in-game stuff, this really seems over priced to me.

0-0 my life has been made complete *loud screams*

Cpt_kitten2265d ago (Edited 2265d ago )

hell yeah ive been waiting for them to announce this since they announced Skyrim, played since ES arena, all these people are complaining about the price but a true fan of anything never cares about the price......unless in the case of Dead Space 2 where they claimed full replica and gave a burger king kids meal toy instead

majiebeast2266d ago

If thats all it contains its overpriced compared to reach,kz3,infamous 2 and swtor ce's.

vickers5002266d ago (Edited 2266d ago )

Seriously. For that price, I would expect them to throw in a soundtrack, a poster (or a cloth like substance with the skyrim logo on it, like a flag or perhaps something that looks/feels like an actual scroll), some special DLC, a textured steel book case, and maybe some other random small trinket, like a ring or a necklace or something.

$150 is way too much for a statue, an artbook and a making of dvd (the last 2 being available online for free).

RedDead2266d ago (Edited 2266d ago )

I would expect a large shield to come with it at that price...you know to fight people

banjadude2266d ago

I would like to get this... but with most Bethseda games, I find [more] value in getting the GOTY edition. Problem is, I'll have to wait a long time for its release.

Ch1d0r12266d ago

But its worth it, not like if there is any multiplayer. And by that time youll know if the game is a bust like Dragon Age 2. Personally i waited for Uncharted 2 GOTY 29.99, totally worth it.

Bonobo123452265d ago (Edited 2265d ago )

additionally (with Bethesda games) it's usually a better deal on the DLC, assuming they have been released prior.

which is highly likely.
