DLC should not be considered a limited edition bonus. It's just cheaper and lazier than putting something tangible in there.
So true, most limited editions are total shit. The stuff included should be tangible only. This is why I loved Skyrims limited edition, the dragon statue, artbook and making of blu-ray was an awesome inclusion.
The thing what bugged me about Skyrims CE was with how pricey it was I would of enjoyed a good packaging for it instead of a making off DVD....I mean come on you can watch that crap on Youtube in a week free of charge, hell studios should put the making of stuff on the disc like NaughtyDog does to Uncharted.
That's without a doubt true. But I like the tangibility of having the disc itself. LOL that's just my collector's instinct though. As for the price, yeah it was pretty damn pricey, but the pvc dragon was much higher quality and detailed than I imagined it would be. It's freakin' huge too so the price feels somewhat justified. At least to me. Not to mention the artbook, the cover is made of leather, and the paper used was top notch quality.
art book and making of the game isnt worth it....but if the guns was Replicas i would have picked this up...i got hyped when i saw the collectors of this game and then i looked into and found out it was DLC but i love buying collectors ED of the games....Batman AC and AA was the best.....then maybe the Kollectors of MK was nice too
I would like a normal edition without feeling ripped off : /
Art books need to be taken out all together!
Driver San Francisco's collectors edition was pretty cool.
Too bad US didn't get it.
I like art books with games but they shouldnt cost extra. They need to stop calling steel cases and an extra dlc gun collectors/limited editions
When they are do a Collectors Edition they should always have high quality physical replicas of items from the game. Things which would cost you a lot to buy seperate or things which you wouldn't be able to get any where else. Art books, Soundtracks and Making of DVDs are the three worst things to include in a CE because they are limited edition goodies not a Collectors edition. I mean Soundtracks and Making of DVDs will be on Youtube in like a week so they're pretty much pointless. The Hitman CE for example should of came in a Briefcase with a replica silenced gun on a stand in the middle then have a secret compartment underneath which would have the game (steelbook), the artbook, and some other Hitman goodies from the game.
I don't mind DLC in a collector's edition, but it shouldn't be the best part. Most of the time I never take the stuff out of the box and just stick it on a shelf anyway. I actually like steel cases. So getting a little something in-game is sort of nice to get. As long as it's something useful and not worthless like a gold gun in multiplayer. Otherwise, yeah. Nothing really special here. A bigger box to hold the book and extra DVD. Oh wow, just realized it was a "making of" disc. I thought they quit doing that like 4-5 years ago.
