Just got a press release from Namco Bandai clarifying a few things.
- The CE will include the LE DLC
- The music CD is the same for both the CE and the LE.
- The art book is exclusive to the CE.
- The "character profile booklet" is exclusive to the LE.
In summary, the only difference between the two version is the statue and the art book/booklet (and of course the packaging).
This solidifies my decision to downgrade to the LE, since I was least excited about the statue anyway. The only thing I'll miss is the art book, which maybe I can snag separately.
Here's the excerpt from the press release:
Fans can currently pre-order the recently announced TALES OF XILLIA Collector’s Edition for a MSRP of $99.99 or day-one Limited Edition for a MSRP of $59.99. The TALES OF XILLIA Collector’s Edition comes with a DLC voucher that includes the Classic TALES OF Costume Pack which was announced with the TALES OF XILLIA Limited Edition package. The TALES OF XILLIA music CD will also be shared across both the TALES OF XILLIA Collector’s and Limited Editions. A limited edition Milla Maxwell statue and TALES OF XILLIA art book are exclusive to the TALES OF XILLIA Collector’s Edition. The TALES OF XILLIA Limited Edition is limited to all first-run copies of the game and comes with an exclusive character profile booklet.
