Wow $250 for a collector's edition of a one game series?

#1TJ_UNLIMITEDPosted 1/16/2014 5:08:18 PM
Half the price of the system for one video game and some riff raff. Then they have the nerve to call it a collector's edition. How in the world do you become a collector of a game series that has one game in it? Lol

Gotta admit, their marketing team is doing some great work because people are buying it. Makes you wonder how much they'll want for collector editions of games next gen...$400? More?

Collectors editions have been coming out for years for $200-$300. This is nothing new.

This is the best game that will come out on the XB1 in the next 7 years, except maybe the next Halo, so $250 is justified. Maybe there will be better games on the next Xbox whatever its called.

Worth noting there's been far more ludicrous collector's editions:

But yeah, it does seems a bit silly.

The Call of Duty ones are generally the most expensive since they typically have actual equipment in theirs, and don't even break 200. 250 for a stupid ass statue is absolutely bonkers.

The last time I spent that much money on a game, it game with a controller that was three feet wide and had three joysticks and a ton of light-up buttons. Spending that much for a glorified disc and trinket set is stupid IMO.
