A weird off-topic question, but is the Resident Evil 7 GS Collector's Edition rare? And how rare?

Also, what about the Tales of Beseria one in terms of rarity too?

Thanks.

Berseria $275 shipped New on Amazon, RE 7 CE $435 shipped New on Amazon. Berseria MSRP was $150, RE 7 CE was $180 & GameStop exclusive.

Thanks, the Ebay prices seem significantly lower though. Was able to pick up both at Gamestop recently but wasn't sure to keep them or not.

Yeah, but ToB was busted up and had a dent, and RE7 was opened and a store display.

Shipping on that RE7 CE would be a huge dickpunch though.  Probably $30 or more.

got Sonic Mania this morning, my statue looks fine to me, didn't really have high hopes for something that was only marginally more expensive than a regular game but I'm pretty happy, just wish we had a physical release of the game

$225 for Ni No Kuni 2 CE is ridiculous. Sounds like Play-Asia prices.


It was actually $199.99 with free shipping

Mine just arrived this morning; they ended up overnight it after not shipping it out on Tuesday. Hope yours arrives soon.

Just received my Sonic Mania CE. This was definitely worth $45. Didn't order it expecting a resin statue and definitely didn't expect it to be as big as it is. I actually like the outer box also and will probably keep that too. All versions are available to be ordered on Amazon for anyone who missed out.

Wolfenstein New Order had a CE with no game, that sold well enough.

Yep.  Not sure what the issue is.  I think it's actually a much more consumer friendly approach as you can take advantage of GCU or Amazon discounts on the game and then get the CE materials separately or not at all.

I hope your not referring to that one with the little metal robot dog, or whatever the hell it was. As that set was available for what seemed like a few years on their site, and it was discount probably more than half that time, as they couldn't give those away after the initial launch of the game. I almost caved and bought it at one point, as it was being offered so cheap, but they way over produced that and with no game, it sat a good long while.

GCU applies to Collector Editions too though, not sure about stand alone CE materials.  I don't think the Mass Effect "CE" was discounted recently because it didn't include the game.

 

So you're actually getting fucked on a discount for standalone CE with no game.  Not consumer friendly at all for GCU members.

 

I also don't think many people would buy just the collector edition and opt out buying the game.

I guess, but I suspect in many of these combined CEs that publishers are now just jacking up the price to accommodate discounting anyway, so I don't really think there would be much savings if this was combined.  I suspect it would be a $200 CE in that case.

Give them a break Wiggles... it takes a bit of time to track down a bubble mailer three sizes too small.

Bethesda only made 5,000 of those Panzerhund Editions, which isn't crazy, but they still sat around for ages on their web store.  I bought two of them when they were finally clearanced out for $50 in October 2014.  Ended up working out alright though, I flipped them both recently for $300 each as part of my ongoing oversized CE purge.

So glad the CE is gigantic that there's no way it could fit in a bubble mailer.... I should probably take that back because Amazon probably has 2'x2' bubble mailers

Yeah, depending on what is being offered, and the initial asking price, 5000 could be a good number. The Panzerhund Edition was certainly not one of those situations. I think 1000 would have been sweet spot for them on that one.

 

It had some decent stuff included, but the $100 initial price I think didn't appeal to many, and with no game, it died rather quickly. The actual physical game for the consoles was discounted pretty fast to, and at that point, the CE stood little chance of selling anymore. When things like this are offered on sale, it's usually a solid buy, as once the inventory finally sells through, prices almost always go up to good levels over time.

I'd have to say that the W:TNO CE is higher quality than this one.

Best Buy is pulling the same crap with mine.  Right now they are "reserving" my copy and its supposed to arrive tomorrow.  that seems.... unlikely.

No game, no buy.

 

Also, since there is no game then this is just a bunch of random junk and you kind of have to be a fan of the series to purchase.  Since this appears to be a new IP not sure how many fans of this game there are.  Kind of ballsy to price it at $150 but I guess if it is limited enough it will likely sell eventually.

I'm sure EU will get an exclusive one :P

And a collector edition that is much better than the one we get or an exclusive collector edition for Eu only.
