I usually don't buy collector's editions, but the Diablo 3 CE has the most beautiful box art I've ever seen:
Does anyone share my opinion or am I crazy? :)
Whats in it. I only have the burning crusade CE (my only one) an that was nice. I am a sucker for art books.
I've stopped caring much for CE's, they tend to be very expensive and usually don't come close to offering content that makes it worth it.. Skyrim and Old Republic are perfect examples of this.
This one is a little better though, and judging my Blizzards last few CE's, it won't be crazy expensive. I do really like the idea of the wings and special armour dye.. Little ingame things that aren't a big deal for those who miss out, but special enough to be meaningful a few years down the road.
Yeah, I picked up the cataclysm CE for around £25 a few months after it was released. I'm not sure yet whether I'll get this. It's got some good stuff, but honestly the soulstone USB and diablo skull... meh! I would have liked the classic figurine of tyrael or something, I guess blizzcon had that covered.
Store I usually buy from already has filled their Collector's Edition pre-orders - hoping they get some more... I've bought all Blizzard Collector's Edition's since Burning Crusade (and regretting that I didn't get the Classic one).
Though, already got my "free diablo 3" (well, it's applied to my b.net account) through the annual WoW-pass thing, I just want that stupid USB drive-holder sitting on my desk :P
@emem: Because, as the name suggest, it's an edition for collectors. And I am a collector. Just this last month I have bought Killzone 3 Helghast Edition (found it dirt cheap on a GameStop), Resistance 3 Survivor Edition (bought on impulse, expensive but probably the best one I have at the moment (all though I value the God of War 3 european media edition more, because it's unobtainable for most - I won it through a gamesite.) and Batman Arkham City CE.
@emem: I play them, games I know I won't touch doesn't get bought, but games I might enjoy does, unless it's really expensive or I got a lot of games to play right then.
As for the possible value drop of opening them, I don't care. It's games, not diamonds and they'll probably never be worth anything, and even if they do I'll either be dead by then or still keen on owning them. I own them to show them off (I need more space). Right now, I'm waiting for the Uncharted 3 Explorer Edition, Saints Row: The Third CE and Metal Gear Solid HD Remake Zavvi.com exclusive (4000 copies of it on world basis). Not that Zavvi.com is in it self a "wow!"-thing, but it did ship with an extra MGS game.
