Why don't more PC games get collector's editions?

As a big collector's edition fan, it makes me sad.

I had to get both Saint's Row 4 and Arkham Origins on PS3, because there was no collector's edition for PC.

I guess since PC gamers rarely seem to pay full price for games anyways, there is no way they'd pay for a collector's edition? *Shrugs*

Well I did like Tomb Raider's CE. SC2 got a CE too.
We get CEs just not very many for obvious reasons.

DD is super popular, there's not much demand for physical copies from PC gamers.

Good point. I didn't even take DD into consideration. Although, I picked up a few PC games from GameStop since I had some random credit, and the games just have you insert the disc and then install on Steam/Origin like normal. lol

There is no way I'd pay extra for an artbook and a statue.

Because we have Digital Deluxe versions which are better.

How many pc games even get physical releases anymore? All I ever see on shelves are blizzard games, random MMOs that haven't gone F2P yet (or have and the retail copies just haven't been cleared out yet), and the occasional big ticket game like Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, etc.
