I am so stoked for this game!!
I think I’ll pass on the collectors edition shown here though. I may stick with the steel book by itself if it’s available though.

It's not even the collectors edition. It's $50 and doesn't include the game. Here's what you get.

"Each Spider-Man collector's box will come with a backpack, notebook, insulated travel mug, beanie, enamel pin, and two mystery items. If you're one for subtlety with your video game swag, this collection might be for you, as the arachnid hero and the game's logo are plastered on each item."

It’s really just stuff GS (probably) has overstock of and is repackaging. Can’t remember off the top of my head, but it has happened before. I don’t want to be rude, but it seems kinda junky....

Gamist2dot0209d ago

So basically it's GS desperate attempt to milk the fans...

It doesn’t include the game? Wut? Ok. Never mind.

Ugh. I don't like shopping at GameStop.

I am so tired of GS exclusives. It is the only reason I even go there. If they started a loyalty program for 20% off new games I would probably shop there more often ,but since they don't they can kick rocks.

I don't understand why they refuse to offer it.

@Maul

Because 20% is most of their profit for new games. Places like best buy and Amazon can offer it because they sell a lot of other stuff, whereas people only go to GameStop to buy games....and I guess maybe some game related crap.

Even Amazon stopped offering it for anything but pre-orders, and they completely stopped it for collector's editions....which is odd because there is more profit margin with collector's editions.

Like Amazon giving 20% off printed discs for preorder. These people are fighting to stay relevant when truthfully digital is taking over.

Not one for a collector's edition normally. I think it's exclusive to Game in the UK. Would've tried to get one it if it was more generally available. Shame it's tied into one store I don't use.
Seems very shortsighted, but suppose it's 'business' that makes sense somewhere...

Goldby209d ago

these arent collectors editions, just a collectors loot crate essentially. doesnt even include the game

sizeofyou209d ago

Yep...sorry Goldby.
I DID mean the genuine Collectors edition - and not as you point out, these collector's DLC transactions.

Just seems bizarre to limit the proper CE to one outlet to me!

I prefer not to shop at Gamestop. I'm tired of Gamestop selling Opened games as New games. How is this allowed?
