Can anyone explain to me the point/appeal of these SteelBooks? 

Especially for games like Fallout 76 where a disk for the main game literally does not exist. You want a case for your cardboard disk?

These were the free bonuses for buying the game. You'd have the normal game and this bonus steelbook that's just a case like it says.

I've noticed a lot of the preorder steelbooks come without any factory seal, making them highly susceptible to any and all damage.

I absolutely don't understand the fanatical appeal.

I've seen some Tekken 7 steelbook cases in store as well recently. No price was listed and not seeing it on the website.

Bought on recently. MSRP was $19.99 but I think it was $7.99 on clearance.

I have two Resident Evil 2 Steelbooks as well as the Deluxe DLC for sale. I don't like selling on ebay though because you often get screwed as a seller.

I bought 3 from them, because I wanted them shipped in a box.  Well, they shipped them in a box and all three were damaged in transit.  Returning them is a fucking pain in the ass, so I am SOL.  Damage isn't HORRIBLE but still I am pissed they all arrived that way.

I'll sell it at a high price, stranger. j/k These aren't shrinkwrapped unlike the European ones and there is a upc sticker on the back which will need some adhesive remover to get rid of. You don't want something that is going to stain or remove the black matte finish though.

 

Just send me a private message unless you want to order one from Amazon Germany.

Out of curiosity, which shipping option did you choose?  I see there are Standard and a Global Standard shipping options.  Does the cheaper Standard Shipping ship to the US?

 

Sucks to hear about all of them arriving damaged.  I'm trying to decide if it's worth the risk now.

Standard shipping.  They were shipped in a cardboard mailer type box.  One of the ones you can adjust its size.  The size was adjusted too small basically putting pressure on all the cases.  I tried to return them, but you have to pay the international shipping back and then submit your receipt to Amazon.de to get a refund on the shipping.  Not worth the hassle IMO.

Wait wait wait...BB steelbooks are separate?  Even when they first come out?  The actual game is in it's normal case than the steelbook?  I'm confused...

Some are separate when they're advertised as a bonus.  Mario Kart 8 was a separate bonus also.  On the opposite side, the PS4 release of Valkyria Chronicles came in the steelbook.
