I find it ironic that someone on a collectors edition forum finds vinyl absurd. It’s like todays collectors edition for music lovers.

That's not the point. Vinyls are cool. For almost every vinyl you want, you can get them for $10-$25 at the max.

Chronicles is $50 at walmart. Let's say the Vinyl is $25 for the sake of it. Art books are only worth like $5-$10 at most. That means you're not only paying $35 more for just those two compared to just getting the game, but then some here are throwing another $30+ away for shipping or whatever else they think makes it worth it, making it essentially $65 more than just buying the game. That's what's absurd.

What's really absurd is you getting all worked up on how people choose to spend their money. Relax, it is not your money, and why do you care?

Stop being a dick and let people enjoy things. I bet a lot of people that are buying this CE aren’t buying dozens of caseless games from GameStop to pad their collection just because they’re cheap games.

...
Scored like 30 DS/3DS/Wii games for like $50. Sure, they werent the expensive ones, I'm sure some wont work, and not a single one came with a case, but that's still a great deal.
...
I'm getting all the cheaper stuff for the collection out of the way.

The artbook is alot more than $5 to $10 extra, isn't it like 200 pages. You also forgot the Steelbook Case.

Ah, you're right. Dumping all your money into one game that you've probably already played for a bunch of extra stuff to sit on the shelf is way more logical than buying tons of cheap games that will give you hundreds of hours of gameplay.

Right...

Whoa whoa whoa... are you upset because someone was a dick to you about the way you spend you money on something you enjoy? That’s crazy!

It’s my money. I can choose how to spend it. I’ve never played the original Xenoblade and I’m looking forward to playing it and having the extras in the CE.

You’re never going to play the majority of the games you buy, but you want to collect? Go for it. I used to collect any cheap games I could find too. I’ve moved onto collecting games and collectibles I enjoy.

To each his own.

He would get triggered at my house, I have a few hundred 4k movie steelbooks that I watch once then stack on a shelf. Also have 20-30 CE games still sitting in the boxes.

This isn't a collector's forum; it's Cheap Ass Gamer.  Anyways, my post (in the right place in the CE thread) was directly related to a highly desirable video game collector's edition that includes a decidedly IMPRACTICAL vinyl soundtrack, which has been done a few different times now.  It's a trend that I'd like to see stopped.  Most people don't even own a record player.

 

The Xenoblade Chronicles EU CE would have been perfect if it had included a CD soundtrack instead.   Though I stand somewhat corrected if it contains a digital copy of the soundtrack too.

 

I think it's even more ridiculous how some are scrambling on here to spend up to $120(!!!) for a port with a vinyl and art book. Now that's insane. I've recently started getting into collecting and collecting CE's, but only when they're clearanced. Spending $120 on one game, especially a port, is absurd.

Damn, almost 5 pages of people talking about a $100-$120 edition of a ported game with a vinyl and artbook. Wow

Then why the dafuq you posting in the collector's edition thread?  You lost, boyo?

Not sure why so many are getting upset. Simply found it funny how the current CE in discussion has been extensively discussed. Relax.

No one is really upset. Just that your posts are pointless and adds nothing.

Got an email from Limited Run Games with a steam key for Command & Conquer Remastered due to the delayed physical editions. Looks like pre-load will be available starting June 1st for the June 5th release. So if you pre-ordered, check your email for a key =D

Just got charged for my Xenoblade UK CE, hopefully it actually arrives quickly/safely once shipped. 

 

Also hearing word that Prime Trilogy might be coming soon. Really hope that's true, would love a reason to revisit the first Prime (not so much the 2nd/3rd, those didn't have the same mystique... or the soundtrack).

Your so matter of fact about your opinion. YOU may prefer cds but the market shows cd sales declining while vinyl sales continue to climb. It’s all opinion anyways, your getting upset because the world around you is changing. I don’t care how old you are, you are too young to be thinking like that lol
Btw did you even stop to think of what I said or did you just focus on the fact that I said forum instead of thread?

It's a pretty quiet time for CE releases.  The natives are restless.

To be honest I find CDs as annoying as vinyl in 2020 and if I'm going to keep both of them wrapped I'd rather have it on vinyl.

Just got an email from Best Buy that my collector's edition of Last of Us 2 (preordered back in September) has been delayed and if the order is not fulfilled by 6/4, the order will be cancelled.  Weird that if the item doesn't ship 2 WEEKS BEFORE the official release date, my whole order will be cancelled.  Hoping this is just a glitch but is concerning.  Placed an order on Amazon for the special edition, just in case.

They do this a lot. I got one a few weeks ago for Cyberpunk. It's mostly safe to ignore their delayed emails. Steelbooks tell me they are delayed then ship right after. BB's site is wack right now.

I got a Facebook ad for a website called www.physicalitygames.com about Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary pack.  I've never heard of them but they have a few things on their website.

Few people have mentioned them here. I took a shot on that rolling gunner collectors edition. But I'd never bought from them before.

Question for anyone else that utilized amazon.co.uk and forward2me to get the Xenoblade collectors edition. Is forward2me costing you 55USD for the cheapest shipping option? I knew it'd be expensive but was hoping more around $40.

That's honestly not too shocking, it's a pretty large/heavy package from what I've seen. I'm guessing Amazon gets better rates due to the frequency which they ship both within and outside of the UK. 

 

My copy of Xenoblade shipped... but it was the standard edition with the bonus keychain and poster, not the CE. Didn't want or need the standard ed but wanted the extras.

I kept my Game.uk order as my Amazon UK still doesn't even have a estimated arrival date yet. And $51 was my cheapest option. Apparently the box dimensions was pretty large and its listed around 12 lbs.

Yeah I also received that email and noticed the 6/4 date:) I was thinking it had to do with limited supply and unable to fulfill orders. We will see I suppose

Good to hear.  Mine hasn't shipped yet, but all of my non-essential amz orders still come 3-4 days late.  They're probably busy looking for a bubble mailer large enough for my works set   :wall:

For $20, you get a hard cover artbook... so it's not the worst deal. The artbook looks pretty decent size.
