Official Collector's Edition Compilation X - 2019

I pretty much want to cancel my normal CE for Biomutant I've had for a couple of years now that I see THQ has gone stupid and put a steelbook with the $400 version and still use the same stupid screenshot for everything in both CEs. I know they showed more than that, but it feels like the game only has that one fight because that's all they advertise.

 

Edit: Cancelled.  It turned into 3 steelbooks at BB :p

$400 for a PS2 era remake and an unknown IP with no release date does seem a little much.

Why not? This is just like sales as clothing stores... list it for $400, wait a few months for it to not sell, and then clearance them at 50% off for $200.

Price of CEs are out of hand, we need to come together and take a stand.

 

Didn't mean for that to rhyme, but now that I hear it, if I ever run for president that's a nice slogan to run with.

 

Can probably buy that steelbook solo on ebay for like $15 after release, no one's gonna buy that CE.

Works for me. Still waiting on the Darksiders III CE to drop lower.

THQ has some balls to charge for super premium CE's for Biomutant and Destroy All Humans.  I thought the standard CE was pushing it for these titles, but now they have a $400 one?  Are they only expecting to sell around 100 copies of each one?

Companies are crazy thinking people want to pay these prices for this stuff.

Why dont companies make collectors edition like the sekiro one. That one was well worth it.

Because selling 20,000 units with a margin of maybe $30 like Sekiro versus a few thousand units with a margin of $200 is the same and it's easier for a publisher to go with the latter from the logistics perspective.

The figures are massive though. Both about 2' x 1'. You'd have to be a huge fan to not only spend that much, but to have that amount of display space to fit them.

The Destroy All Humans DNA Collector's Edition for $150 looks cool. but I'll wait for a price drop. 

 

Edit: Didn't realize the base game is only $40..... that's too much for a CE

Hey, I still have until I'm 40! Ha.

 

You know if anyone wants to get this I'm selling a $300 GS GC. Just saying. I mean, not selling anything, I didn't mention that here...........

 

Is the statue resin or plastic? Does it say?

So I was on Amazon.de yesterday and somehow their Euro exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn steelbook flew under my radar, I never got it. So, I ordered one it was only 7 euros.

 

Not sure how I missed that one, didn't even know it existed.

If you collect G2 (blu-Ray/ps4/xbone size) steelbooks its a good idea to do a weekly search on amazon Germany for “Steelbook” then filter down to video game category. They’re made in Germany so their amazon gets a lot of them standalone for €10 or less usually.

EDITED for correctness

That's G2, btw.

Most of the European Steelbooks are made in Denmark, where Scanavo is headquartered. They are also manufactured in China and Ohio.

Folks should use the collectorsedition.org forums to help keep up with obscure regional releases (including steelbooks). When I was still a part of that rat race, they were a constant source of information and even help with getting a lot of them.

That site and forum is dead.  Sometimes weeks go by and nothing gets posted.

Damn, that's a shame. I stopped using it when I dropped CEs and steelbooks back in 2013. I'd never have thought that it would just die out.

I cross reference them and CAG. They often post the weird GEO stuff I'm not willing to pay for (but occasionally do anyway).

The steelbook is awesome!

And what's up with the game links all using that stupid mobile layout?  It looks fine if I back out and go to the homepage normally.
