Says Infinity Ward....Aka the company who said they didnt put Co op in their game as a patch because they felt they didnt have to since it was already such a popular game.......also the same people who barely support their current game and gave us a map pack that was absolute garbage and never gave us anything else..........

But yes collector editions are kinda a scam...like really how much of a collector edition can something be when they make 1 million + of them??

agreed, special editions are 1 thing, but these days they are calling any kind of edition a limited one, and then months later you can still buy them for even cheaper than first release price. Thats not limited edition, they are just 'expensive editions' as Kotaku likes to call them.

I have to say, I like buying the collector's editions for games of they are any good. I would LOVE a Shadow Of The Collossus Collector's Edition for example.

But I agree with OOG, the GTAIV Special Collector's Edition isn't exactly that Special, or collectable as every idiot with the game got one.

I like the new Gears and Resistance boxsets, I just don't like it when they are over-priced.

never been into limited edition at all. i imagine perhaps as a collectors item that may be worth something someday but as much as i'm into my gaming i'd feel a bit 'geeky' with a replica lancer in my room haha

only ever got 2 limited editions if i remember right and they we're just metal cases and we're the same price as the regualr edition. The actual game insterests me more

Do people buy these collector editions in hopes that they will be worth more money some day?

Do they ever reach a point where the collector edition is actually worth more than when they were released?

If no on these, then what is the point of the collector editions? Do the toys you get make the game better?

If you have a cool ass game room in you house, (pool table, ping pong, big screen TV, etc.) The Halo helment on the mantle or lancer hanging on the wall adds a cool flair or atmosphere to the room. It's no different from the guys with deer antlers, and bear heads mounted on the wall. They are just another form of trophy.
