Its up to the customer at the end of day to decide what's value in their eyes

Rip off or not, people always have the final word by voting with their wallet, noboby's forcing anyone to buy anything.

In my honest opinion I think there just milking cows and the only reason they exist is because people spend money on them otherwise there wouldn't be any (probably).

Then you have the ones that think they can turn around and make a profit off these.

That's not usually the case though. Most collector's editions go down in value pretty quick.

Not really. If the consumer wants to spend their money on collectors editions, then that's their choice. They know how much it costs when purchasing it.

They are not a ripoff. A ripoff insinuates some form of fraud in the transaction. They are offering a product at a certain dollar amount. If you are a big fan with lots of money congrats.

My only complaint with collectors editions recently is that they are not at all limited, and often times are just as or more common than the standard game. If I pay extra I want cool things but I want limited quantities so it holds its value in the future.

Not really. It's up to us to determine it's value. Personally, I rarely buy games because I have a very selective tastes. But the games I do buy, I generally get the collectors edition due to artbook or statues. I don't buy CEs that are dlc only stuff.
