Why does EVERY game think some cheap plastic statue raises the value by $100... Borderlands 2 did it right with their loot chest edition. But the other ones? x.x

 

It doesn't raise the value by 100, it raises the MSRP /to/ 100. As far as I know the grand majority of CE's contain more then just a collectible statue/figure - so the 40 dollar increase is spaced between those. That being said, most of the time - the figures aren't cheap plastic green army men either <.< If you don't want it - or like it - that's understandable; no reason to spread that rhetoric without the facts..

Seems like it's 18" tall because of the mast. Kenway's figure is probably closer to 12", and that's due to the position (one arm stretched up above his head).

Right, I understand that Kenway isn't 18". The statue itself, mast included, is. :)

Because they know OCD people will buy it.

WTF.

 

I don't think I've ever seen a CE spread across SIX freakin consoles before.

 

That being said this must be one of the first CE's for the WII U right?

Wrong the Wii U doesn't have any Collectors or Limited Edition for Watch Dogs.

Hmm, not sure. It allowed me to select the Wii U Limited Edition when I posted, but now it says "not available for this platform." Same for Xbox One. Gamestop just has the Limited Edition listed for PS3, PS4, 360, One, so I'm not sure.

Ouch, $130, not looking good for my wallet (or either, my rotating account balance).

I'm pretty sure that the Ass Creed IV and Watchdogs CEs will get cheap because they aren't retailer specific. I think one could easily wait for a drop on those.

Huh, that's a pretty sweet CE for Watch Dogs, though I wish there was a version without the figure for maybe $79.99-$99.99 since I'm not into collecting those. :\

Good point, just noticed that Bestbuy is now listing those as well.

In my opinion, Watch Dogs, despite being a new IP, probably won't be as limited as The Last of Us since it is transgenerational and multiplatform.  That being said, it feels slightly overpriced but still looks pretty cool.

Ubisoft CEs also have a long trend of getting cheap. This is also very true for Ass Creed CEs that aren't retailer specific.

Freaking WatchDogs steelbook. So want.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Interesting points, but in all honesty, retailers are getting better and better about not overstocking large CEs and most retailers that used to stock a lot of CEs in store like TRU, Target, Best Buy and Kmart either don't stock CEs at all anymore or only do so for preorder customers with no extras ordered.  Heck, with the exception of games that were just bad, and a couple of other oddities like Tomb Raider and Dead Island Riptide, I think most CEs this year pretty much sold out at or just shortly after release.

Man, I really do wish they would make some CEs with just the steelbook. I just dont have room for all these statues anymore. At least GTAV has a steelbook only version.

The image posted suggests that the edition will include a statuette of 23 cm in height, with a charging Batman hostile to his lifelong nemesis, the Joker.We also see an art book, a box with a putative metallic 3D effect and 2 exclusive downloadable content showing what appears to be an alternate costume for the Dark Knight and the challenges of Deathstroke package, same as is given to fans to away a copy of the game. All included in packaging that will holographic effects.

It should be noted that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has not confirm the package yet, so we can not take for granted. However, both the image and the projected material look authentic, so do not doubt for a second that the study will soon make known officially priced, hopefully, not too high.

Batman Arkham Origins will be released on October 25 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC, while a version known as Batman: Arkham Blackgate Origins will arrive on the same day but for PlayStation Vita and 3DS.

I posted this in the Japanese niche thread but I figured I might as well post it here too.

 

Namco Bandai has announced that there will be a special edition of Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers.

 

saint01_thumb.jpg

This package includes the PlayStation 3 game, a Pegasus Seiya with the classic Pegasus cloth costume and a DLC code to unlock that costume for Seiya in a special box for 13,480 yen ($135).

 

And...

First print copies include a code that adds Shion as a playable character and a Saint Seiya theme.

Highly, significantly, very doubtful. Namco-Bandai hates releasing niche series on disc (apparently) and said they'd be releasing Saint Seiya digital-only over here.

I would say no. But this game is seeing a physical release in Europe, and it was announced a couple weeks ago that a CE for Brave Soldiers was in fact also coming to Europe. The way it was described, I expect that this is the exact same CE.

 

So basically even though this wont be seeing a physical release in NA, there will be English versions of this CE out there. I'm gonna keep my eyes open and maybe pick one up if possible.

I honestly have no idea if they ship overseas or not. I can't even find a way to pre-order the game through their EU store. The CE hasn't been listed on the EU store yet either.

 

I did however find that the Japanese version of the CE is already up at Play-asia for $180. Here's the link if anyone is interested: http://www.play-asia...en-70-6ub7.html

As I previously speculated, it turns out that the EU CE for Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is indeed the exact same one as the Japanese version. Now being called the "Seiya Edition" in the EU, here's a pic:
