I'm still waiting for them to release a package or a bundle with all of the pixel remasters that released on Steam last year.  I guess that we have the series 35th anniversary coming up in just nine days on Dec. 18!  I expect some sort of compilation set to be announced then.   It better not be price gouged for $300+   But seriously, put those pixel remasters on a PS disc set.  and Switch.

This, and also announcing the FFIX remake and/or FF Tactics remaster from the NVidia leak to finish that off.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor CE at LRG.

 

An absurd $300. Hard pass. Comes with steelbook and light saber hilt replica, but no blade.

 

https://limitedrunga...vor?dt_id=88413

I don't know it's that absurd.  A hilt, at least a good quality one (current FX, legacy or Ultra Sabres), is going to be $200-249 w/o blade, sometimes more depending on character.  Maybe consider the extra stuff (steelbook, Obi-Wan DLC) plus $90 MSRP for the Deluxe version.  So to me, its not that far off unless you wait for the eventual price drop on the physical.

 

I wonder what type of quality and if there will be basic sounds included.  There is not much info in the description of the sabre.  Anyone have any experience with LRG's physical extras?

and put a final Street Fighter V complete edition on physical disc / cart, ya dinguses. It's over; you milked it till the end.


Speaking of milking, Fighterz needs to put all their dlc into the disc

I'm still hoping for a Soul Calibur 6 complete edition...and hoping that in the future Guilty Gear Strive gets one, but I doubt it.  At least these fighting game companies are helping me save $$$.

True once I have a vanilla copy of the game I wait for a complete edition and don’t usually buy season 1 pass or season 2 pass. I want em all in one

I put one of the big Play Arts figures (with the bike) in my cart to get an estimated shipping cost of FF XVI CE and it was $35.99. Given that the JPN one is about $280, I bet ours will be $300. That ends up being about $360 total for me with tax.

Not a CE, but switch crisis core steelbook pre-order bonus in stock at Bestbuy.  Know that selling out initially caught a few people off guard.  I believe the switch steelbook is switch size with a cart insert instead of the standard G2 that has been used for some other recent switch releases.  No ps4 or ps5 steelbook restock stock yet.  In other news, got my PS5 copy plus steelbook early!  Too bad I can’t start it anytime soon though.

G2 size was delivered today in a box.  No damage.

 

Callisto CE finally shipped from Skybound.  They took their sweet time.  PS5 and X1 still in stock with them.  I'll update when it's in.  Saw a video on the sketchbook and it's just a 4 page comic and not much of an artbook.

Probably depends on location.  I just added Switch Crisis core to cart and the Steelbook was added.

Yep.  I got it without the game, so maybe that's why it was quicker?

Seems like most of these new larger CEs are getting released at $250-$300 prices, and at those prices I am out, even for game series I am a fan of.  Would much prefer a $100 CE with steelbook, soundtrack and art book.

Gotta love stolen packages. Guessing there’s no way to get that $ back

Just contacted the retailer and they said they’ll contact the carrier. There was a proof of delivery pic but they didn’t ask for signature. If I don’t receive it within 48 hours they said they’ll refund me. Not gonna get my hopes up lol

For $100, you can have a steelbook case, game*, soundtrack*, artbook* and DLC content. 

 

*Content is digital, internet required.

So can anyone confirm that the best buy steelbook for crisis core on switch is indeed a switch steelbook?

I want to wait for reviews first, but it sounds like the CE for wanted: dead will scratch that itch.

It's crazy to me that companies will pull this, and yet NISA is putting consistently putting out $70-$110 QUALITY collector's editions. And those are for series that won't sell 4 million copies.  I am honestly surprised more companies aren't doing that smart thing and releasing a mid-tier CE version that just comes with a couple things for $75-$90 (The $100 FF 16 Deluxe edition is a joke and is not representative of my argument).

 

Base game for $60.
Deluxe edition for $80-$100 that comes with a fancy display box, game, steelbook, artbook, OST.
Special Edition for $175+ that comes with fancier box, game, steelbook, artbook, OST, statue, other trinkets.

 

It's not that hard, I'll never understand the need to pad out some of these CE's to push the price point over $250.  At that point just sell statue's individually (Blizzard has shown with the Overwatch statues that people WILL buy them) and just do a deluxe edition of the game if you want to do a special version.

That Final Fantasy XVI deluxe edition is so disappointing. Final Fantasy VII Remake deluxe edition included a steelbook, mini soundtrack CD, Cactaur DLC and hardback artbook for 79.99, and then there was an Amazon coupon that brought it down to 55.99.

Thought I had secured a switch steelbook for FFVII Crisis Core.  Had it in my cart when I placed the order, gone when I got the order confirmation.

 

Best Buy support is terrible and just wasted my time, so frustrating.  The page keeps flipping back and forth showing the steelbook included and sometimes not, don't see the point trying to play order lottery again.

Think it’s just luck of the draw. I ordered ps5 version + steelbook and a separate order switch steelbook. All arrived yesterday.

Right?  $90, for a legit GOTY CE.  Actually includes the game, steelbook, metal coin trinkets from in game, statue, Artbook, cloth map.  It’s only fault may be that the included soundtrack is digital, and it’s a mini artbook.  Still, all that, in a nice CE box, for $30 more.  For a great game that will probably not get much other merchandise anytime soon.  Takes me back to the days of working design’s CEs.

I.....don't even want that statue. The art box is asdf'ing sweet though! and would great in a detolf next to the FFXV Ultimate Collectors Edition box.
