Nice thread, can't wait for Duke Nukem!


Ha, ha. Like THAT's ever coming out. Get over man, like Anderson Cooper, Duke Nukem is never coming out.

yeah it's odd. The prices from the marketplace are pretty insane too (though I'm sure no one is actually biting). I wonder if it'll be rare.

They can skip the statue in that packaging and just give us the steelbook from it.

you mean you DON'T want a pregnant glow in the dark statue?

I agree. I don't know about you, but I would love to constantly be reminded of my in-game rape and the resulting baby, even as I try to sleep (good call on the glow-in-the-dark).

Great thread idea! I'm not interested in any of these currently, but I do love CE games, so it's nice to have a compilation of info about them.

I know, same here. I've become such a w**re for them recently. Trying to get my hands on New Vegas for cheap and am considering getting Dead Space 2 CE since I recently acquired the rest of the dead space universe items (comics, minigames etc.) After paying retail for Bioshock 2 CE though I do hesitate paying MSRP on release day. These things are so rarely limited collector's items it's not even funny anymore. Although Duke Nukem coming with numbered certificates points to it being a pretty limited run and I do love CE's that come with real objects and not just DLC content (damn you DA:O CE!)

I'm the same way. I don't usually buy CE on release day, but I will be buying ME3 CE at release. Still kicking myself for not buying 1 and 2 right away.

I'm with you on that, ME is my favorite series so that will be a day one purchase. Then again these do hold value. Hell, the only reason I didn't think about getting the first is because I got the vanilla copy a week and a half before release from Kmart. Always thought it was funny beating the game before it even came out :lol: Here's hoping bioware goes out with a bang for the next CE!

Yeah, I never owned LEs (aside from the Doom 3 LE I got with my pre-owned Xbox 180), but I picked a Halo 3 Limited off GoHastings since I needed the game, and I just picked up MvC3 CE @ launch and BS: Epic is tomorrow. ;_; Not to mention I have a SMAS pre-order in @ Amazon.

Edit: And a pre-owned MUA 1: PH.. and a new Batman: AA GotY (though that's not really limited). I'm usually anal about getting Greatest Hits/Player's Choice/Platinum Hits, though.

Edit 2: And I'm fighting picking up a BioShock2 LE from GS. ;_;

I support this simply because I intend to list CEs that are on sale in here rather than deal with the inevitable "the extra stuff isn't worth it".

I feel us CE lovers can have a little corner to hide in since it's apparently so foolish to get them as a CAGer.

I collect CE's and usually wait till they are about 50% off. I have to admit though, I'm somewhat alarmed by the recent trend of the $100 "comes with (cheap) statue" editions. I'd like artbook and other stuff but don't really have the space for the plastic.

Come now, the Fallout 3 bobble head (and lunchbox) is hands down the best CE I have ever bought! Although that duke statue in my room would probably haunt me as I fall asleep

I am a ce whore LOL My only complaint lately is I prefer content over a super voucher. The voucher seems a cheesy way to cut down physical content are there expiration dates on vouchers?

Not to my knowledge, unless they "run out of codes" like CoD 4: GotY did.

But yeah, I hate vouchers, I was ranting about it when the GoW Triple Pack came with a voucher instead of disc-content. It's a load of profit-generating crap (similar to EA's online pass, but I'd say even less justified), and we all know it.

The Duke Nukem CE was originally limited to 2,000 all around (PS3, X360 & PC combined ) however I read that they're making "a few" more and it's supposed to be limited as they will all be numbered.

Mainly upcoming ones, but I will archive every one I post going forward in the second post after they've been released.

I don't understand why the Tournament edition of MK doesn't have the statues and the art book that the Kollectors edition has. You would think it would have all that and the fightstick as it seems to be the top tier version of the game.


You're essentially getting a fight stick and DLC for $100 so throwing in the statues in terms of value probably wouldn't make sense from the manufacturer side.
