I usually try to get Collector's Editions of big releases if the game strikes my fancy. However with Bioshock... I just can't justify spending an extra $70 for a 9" statue. Some people probably do think it's worth it though. I guess I've just started becoming more selective when buying Collector's Edition.

However it does make me worry that seeing this, Eidos is going to pull the same thing with Tomb Raider. Offer a $79.99 edition and then the one with the Lara statue will be $149.99. Hell, I couldn't justify the $20 price hike for Assassin's Creed 3 collector's edition. Once they go beyond $99.99, it's kind of ludicrous, especially since if you enjoy the game then you'll be roped into buying the DLC for between $10-20 a pop.



Borderlands 2 started this by selling out of there $150 ultimate loot edition. Now all developers are doing the same. We can't blame anybody but our selves for this new trend.

Maybe it'll finally mean a limited edition will mean just that. The only reason Borderlands 2 ULC sold so well was because they were indeed limited. I know I wouldn't have kept mine if the market got hit with another huge wave of them. It's like a slap in the face to all their fans.

Yes, true for Bio2... but as my fellow CAGs reminded me, the FIRST Bio had a LE and that one is a gem indeed.


Mass Effect's CE is also much more rare than 2 or 3s. Bioshock was a new IP, so they didn't produce as much. My guess is the Bioshock Infinite one will be less common than 2's, but still abundant.

Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest had a ton of stuff in it, including the chest that looked great in videos. There's been tons of $150 CEs before Borderlands 2, so I don't know why you're blaming BL2. Skyrim? All those giant boxes with helmets etc?

It's true, the only thing that BL2 did was make it without a statue, meanwhile, this has what looks like a great statue, long as it's not cheaply made(which is what I fear). But based on the Big Daddy with the original, I would say it'll probably be fine.

The price for just the statue is ridiculous. Come on now. $99 or $119 and I might of bit, but $70 more?

I just wanted to let people know that Amazon isn't taking preorders on the Adventure Time CEs anymore. I'm not sure if they're just temporarily out of stock or what's going on, but if you were interested in the CE for DS or 3DS, you might want to check with Gamestop.

I saw that just a couple of minutes ago. I've had it in my cart waiting for a couple of credits from SB and then it told me it was taken out. Hoping GS has preorders still when I go tonight.

Just preordered on of each BI CE for 360. If the songbird is actually limited, I'll keep that one, otherwise it's premium for me!

Too much extra for a statue I'll never be able to display anywhere. Placed a preorder on Amazon for the Premium edition (although that edition that be readily available like BS2's was, so might end up cancelling down the road).

Placed an order for Songbird and the special edition. I'll cancel the $150 one if it's not that limited or if the statue isn't $70 nice (there's been a few I've really liked-- Darth Malgus was prob the best this year).

I'm really curious to see the Kratos statue because I think Sony is hitting a real sweet spot with that CE.

Finally... I'm kinda second guessing my AC3 CE from GS. I love the Ubisoft packaging (similar to what the other poster mentioned about Bioshock 2 CE being an "artifact" from that universe) but I really want the flag and statue. Kinda makes me wish there was a "complete" CE for AC3 w everything from both editions...

Probably a precaution... I doubt they'd produce so few of these that it would sold out so fast. That or, the hoarders are really started to stock up. They might have just taken it down until they clarify things.

It's still up on GS.

glad I preordered the song bird, let's see how this goes. Wish they would announce how many they are producing to eliminate the guessing game.

It's just easier to preorder on amazon because they don't charge anything whereas gamestop in store charges a flat $25.

Maybe this edition is really actually limited though. We will see in a couple more days. If it goes OoS on Gamestop.com we know what we are in for.

Thanks for the heads up. I missed out on preordering Borderlands 2 ULCE before it sold out but was lucky enough to find it at an MS store after release date. I don't want to take another chance so I preordered from BB. Used a GC and RZ Cert to bring the price down a bit and make it a little easier to click on the preorder button.

No way it's limited. Amazon had to remove it due to an error. All three versions have now been removed, including the photos.

Thanks for posting about the newer compendium's release. Managed to finally have a use for one of the myriad coupons that Barne's and Noble has been sending me. Spent $33.05 versus $35.99 from Amazon.
