Bitmob Community Member Matt Polen: Are you getting tired of paying ridiculous amounts of money for weapon skins, posters, and concept art? I am.

I don't know, I really enjoy some of the limited editions I buy, with the most recent being the halo reach legendary edition. I've got a job and the extra money, so spending on limited editions for game franchises I really admire is no big deal for me.

exactly...if person(s) like the limited editions then thats there choice to buy it...not like we are getting forced to buy them and when we do buy them, we usually have a reason why we did

I enjoyed reading this article and I lived by it since I purchased my last worthless, limited edition, "Batman: Arkham Asylum". Most limited/special edition are just paperweights such as Halo 3, Batman AA, Duke Nukem, AvP, Fable 3, Halo Wars, Killzone 3, etc.

However, I have a few limited/special edition games, such as BlazBlue CT, Dead Space 2, Demon's Souls, & Mass Effect 2 that are worth it because their extra value comes back as physical soundtracks and/or extra content. Plus, they're not that much more expensive and my limit is $80 for limited/special edition and I better like what I'm getting. Additionally, Battlefield 3, Rage, and Dark Souls upgrade to limited versions for free when preordering, that's nice too.

PS. I purchased Bioshock 2 Special Edition today, for $31 and that's a great price for the game, artbook, vinyl and cd version of the soundtrack.

Agreed with the BlazBlue SE. I've listened to the soundtrack more than I've played the game that came with it.

I love Taokaka's and Bang's Theme the most. So Much ENERGY! Plus the remixes by DJ Oh No are amazing.

The best ever Limited Edition game I bought so far was Alan Wake. It came with a book, plenty of extra content and the crown jewel was in-game developer video commentary.

As you played the game, the developer would pop up a small window in the corner and discuss that particular scene. How awesome is that?

That said, I'm a sucker for LE and tend to buy them. The good news, is I tend to wait until they fall in price. Got the Halo: Reach Legendary Edition for $60-70 and Halo 3 Legendary for a mere $40.

Some of them actually increase in price. I have a sealed copy of Mass Effect LE (in fact I had two, but sold one for around $300+). I think recently they have been going for $600+.

However, I don't know if I can wait on Gears of War 3. Might have to splurge on Epic Edition... Hope they come with an LE console. I would be all over that to the detriment of my wallet!

There are definitely some Special/Limited editions that are totally worth the extra scratch. Behind-the-Scenes DVDs are my crack.

I waited to long for Duke Nukem i need to get the Balls of Steel edition. But some of them suck and others are really good.
