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? :)

The box is beautiful but why I really want it is all the stuff inside. The Diablo head with the soul stone USB stick is so rad!

How much, $120?

Seems very similar to the StarCraft 2 CE, which was a pretty fucking dope package.

I've gotten every Blizzard CE starting with The Burning Crusade, and I won't be stopping now. Really high quality packaging and enough goodies to totally make it worth the price of admission!

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.

I'm waiting to find out if those armor dyes are a potential money maker when taking into account the ability to sell characters. That might persuade me to pay extra. I really hope that they're bound to your account, though.

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.

Sure, why not. I own all the WoW CEs. I love the choice of what appears to be ivory coloring. Unexpected, and quite nifty looking.

Blizzard has had me hooked on their CEs since vanilla WoW...I guess it's too late to stop buying them now.

Damn that looks hot. 
I've never played a Diablo game so I might buy it post-release.. And if I do, it'll be the regular ed.

That's cool looking, but doesn't leap out at me as the best of all time.

I might grab this if enough friends play it. But the normal people edition.

Just pre-ordered it. I must admit though, the Diablo skull being the cap for the USB key is kinda silly.

I'm just getting into PC gaming, and I'm not even sure my rig will play Diablo 3, but I'll echo everyone else's comment. That looks great.

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 account) through the annual WoW-pass thing, I just want that stupid USB drive-holder sitting on my desk :P

I'm interested in only the artbook and maybe the soundtrack, not worth $40 in my opinion though.

excited as hell about diablo 3 but don't really see anything worth the extra bucks in the CE package - barebones for me.

Depends on the price. Not that keen on the game, but I do like a good collector's edition.

I really really want to. I love WoW and always wanted one of those sexy boxes but... sadly I probably won't.

I want to just give Blizzard all my money and let them mail me cool stuff once in awhile.

But since I have bills and I like to eat food once in awhile, I'm probably going to pass on this admittedly sweet collector's edition.

Hm why would you want a CE of a game that you are "not that keen on"? And it looks like it will cost around 100 bucks, but I would expect a little bit more.

@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.

Amazon is listing this at $99. Has this been confirmed?

No I have not but only because don't have it up yet. It looks great, in fact most Blizzard CEs do, the SC2 package was really great with the art book In particular being super rad.

@HellBrendy: I see, so what do you do with them? Some collectors don't even open up their "stuff", do you play the games or do they just sit there and look pretty?

#42 Posted by HellBrendy (1105 posts) -

@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 exclusive (4000 copies of it on world basis). Not that is in it self a "wow!"-thing, but it did ship with an extra MGS game.

@HellBrendy: Hm okay, if I had the money to "waste" I'd probably buy a few more CEs as well. Skyrim looks like the coolest one this year, followed by Uncharted 3.

Art books are one of my many weaknesses.

the art book is a real book not a 5th graders art project which is nice. plus the extras of a blizz CE are always worth it
