I personally dislike it because of the fact that it's a CE with inexpensive extras for $80. Granted Bioshock 2 was a $100 CE but Alan Wake was $80 and included a soundtrack, developer commentary, a full book and a great case.

This CE has a nice case and possibly nice HD extras (though the discrepancy between the 360 and PS3 version is concerning) but the pen, band aid and pad of paper are all extremely low cost items. Even the Bioshock 2 CE got a lot of flack for being 'paper heavy' but at least that was 3 posters, a really nice box, a record and a stunning artbook among other things. This CE has a tiny artbook, the standard on cheaper CEs, and just doesn't have much else that's "classy" imo to justify a $20 added cost.

Honestly, tell me where the money is going? $10 for a steelbook? $5 for the artbook and $5 for the bonus discs? Because otherwise the rest of the items are mass produced penny materials. Just my own reasons for being disappointed in this set, I'd buy it at $60 and be really impressed, $70 would seem fair but a bit much, $80, to me, simply isn't worth it.


I agree simply based on the Alan Wake CE which IMO is the best one released in that price range.

I personally think it should be 70-75 but I also think it will be clearanced shortly as well.

The Bioshock 2 one is fantastic but the content sacrifices accessibility for kitsch and is also 100 freakin' bones.

Agreed. I really wanted the Bioshock 2 artbook, but had no use for the record. And I don't like splitting up and ebay-ing CEs (assuming anyone would even buy the record) - sort of defeats the purpose for buying one in my book.

I'm holding off on the DR2 CE until it price drops, as the content just isn't worth 70 dollars to me.

The UK/EU CE version is better. At least it gives me a reason to get the EU version on the 360 and the US version on the PS3.

I'm waiting to see if Gamestop adds their pre-order ninja outfit to the CE as well.

I've got a drawer full of pens that look similar to these. The pharmaceutical reps pass these out at work like halloween candy.


Wanna send me one? =)

Woof. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll stick to my $45 pre-order for the regular edition.



where did you pre order for $45?

Honestly, I just like that Capcom took the time to think up a Collector's Edition that is actually themed to the game rather than lazily slapping an action figure in with the SE of the game.


Seconded. If you're into action figures, I guess that's one thing, but personally, I'd rather have this kind of silly novelty stuff like a pen and prescription pad. It's something different, rather than just one more for the figure shelf.

That said, though, probably my favorite CE pack-in is the MW2 night vision goggles. I'm admittedly not a huge MW fan, but damn that's cool.

I'm thinking with Gamestop with their previous coupons. Another possible option is Amazon for those who had the ECA codes and pre ordered their games.

DR2 is still working with free ship and 20 off 80. The code ends today so hurry! It is a glitch and not supposed to work on this edition but it does. So order now and cancel later if must.

Need to add a .01 or more filler, because the game is 79.99, not 80.

Just toss in one of the games from the powerplay sale for $3 or so, that's what I've more or less been doing.

I personally don't much care for action figures/statues so I'm not down with that EU version, but I can also sort of understand the sticker shock. I like these kind of bonuses, but this doesn't quite justify a $20 hike, although the steelbook is nice. With the 80save20 I might as well bite on it though, I was determined to buy the game anyways and I'm sure I can make some extra cash from the extras.
