Back when they were harder to find outside of Japan. Now it seems that nearly every big-name game that is coming out lately has some sort of "collector's package" along with the original release. It really kind of dilutes the whole mystique of it all...

I've only ever bought one Collector's Edition and it was Metal Gear Solid 4 for EU.

It was truly collector's edition in every sense.

With every other collector's edition I could go into a store now and pick it up, because they're never really limited in anyway, this one was limited to a set number for all of Europe (250,000 wasn't it?) and is pretty much impossible to buy due to its limited run.

That, to me, is collector's edition. Not a steel case, not a making of DVD, a very limited number with these extras goodies for Collectors.

I like when a game comes with an official soundtrack (not 'limited edition' aka 'gimped').
