Matt Grandstaff waltzed into the Bethesda office this morning, only to hear a squeak of 'Hello there' at senior brand manager Erin Losi's desk. That's because she was hidden by a box.
No wonder the price is kind of high The pictures showing you it's contents don't do it justice to be honest
Yeah that's massive. I'll have to wait a month or two and pick it up on Amazon for half price. Zing..
they may be all gone... Zing
I would usualy do that but I get scared now (thanks to missing the Resistance 3 Survivor Edition) that if you wait they could sell out before you want to buy it. Some your lucky with and they overstock, some sell out. I mean if a CE like Resistance 3 sold out then I'm sure a hyped up game like Skyrim will aswell.....but you never know. I'm still trying to decide whether or not to get it for the PS3 or 360. EDIT: Really...have you seen the price of The Assassins Creed Codex Edition or Halo Reach's CE for example. Most of them are limited, especialy if you like them new
Never happened before. Only very early games of this generation are hard to find. Limited editions are not limited at all.
@Whitelightning - Oh you mean the Halo Reach CEs that were selling for 70% off within weeks of the release at almost every major retailer? I think my local gamestop still has a few boxes collecting dust.
It sold out in Australia about a month ago, I missed out :(
Wow!... What a waste of cash. I wish I was able to spaff money up the wall on pointless trinkets and crap - Instead I'll get the normal version.
They seem to be getting better at making limited editions limited, at least in the uk anyway. I tried buying the Halo Reach slim console last month, and it's pretty much sold out in the uk: I was lucky enough to find a 2nd hand one in good condition at my local CEX (ebay one's only had one controller...and there were only 2 being auctioned). Probably a different story in the states tho.
Like the the box art wish I had the money to buy the collectors might just wait till chirstmas.
I just preordered at gamestop though just the regular edition.
There's already too many collectors edition I'm already planning to get so I'm just gonna get the game.
Not planning for Skyrim?
When it gets a price cut because it's expensive, $150, If sold out I'll just pass on it.
Yeah and it's £130 in the UK... That's £40 ($60 USD) more than the US version! Someone at Bethesda can't count.
^^ Actually it's because everything is more expensive in Europe. Just look around you. You're paying extra for every single item you purchase. Edit:Wow. Why didn't it reply to the right person...
I'm willing to put money that that's not the collectors edition of the "game" but the special edition skyrim xbox 360...There is NO WAY that they need that big of a package for just a 12"statue plus the game and artbook..
If you zoom in you can see "collectos edition" written on the box plus the fact the art book is next to it on the table
Yes I know, but I really think it's the entire 360 collectors edition...It's WAYY to big...have you ever bought a collectors edition before? They love to get it all into as small of a box as possible.
If it is a 12" tall hand-painted statue of a dragon, the width could very well be somewhat more than that - perhaps 15". Add the packing material needed to protect it, and the size of the box is not all that surprising.
ugh can't wait for this a;; the hours and hours of fun like all the other elder scrolls game
Why Is the box so huge? The dragon statue can't be that big.. Probably break my desk I've already pre ordered the standard edition for ps3. Seriously.. I want to know HOW BIG IS THAT DRAGON?
It is a 12 inchs tall. http://cdnstatic.bethsoft.c...
no matter how big they make it, it won't be able to hold all the amazing pc mods that will be coming ") that said, nice artwork on the box:)
This is epic, I'm happy that my CE is already secured
for $150 bucks, you better suck my ___k. I'm sorry but Bethesda games are always huge let downs. They hype the frikkin thing up so much and then you get into it and its a beautiful, sterile world where combat feels like you are in a cardboard box and interaction with the "zombies", I mean NPC's in the gameworld feels terrible. Morrowind is the exception but I bought Oblivion Collector's edition and had to uninstall it after 1 hour of play. The first city was so incredibly empty and sterile that I felt depressed playing the game.
"That's no moon..." O.o
The dragon is life size. It only can go on the lawn without using a plus-30 shrink spell...
Holy crap that is about the same size as a consoles box.
I have my preorder made :) I don't mind paying extra for the CE if it helps support the devs of such a great series :D
