Your Skyrim Collector’s Edition is Expensive

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim collector’s edition is expensive. Like $150 worth of cash money. So what do you get with it? Well, it’s no Master Chief helmet for your cat, but it’s not too shabby either. For $149.99/€149.99/£129.99/A$199.99, you get everything pictured above, which is that dragon statue made of PVC, a very classy-looking 200-page hardcover art book and a making-of DVD. Although that picture also has a map in it, I don’t see mention of that in the press release.

Bethesda says this collector’s edition is “extremely limited,” and you know what that means: if this strikes your fancy, you’d better go ahead and order it.

Eh, if I was sure the game would be of quality to warrant a purchase, I would. Problem is that the changes from Morrowind to Oblivion killed half of the feeling of freedom for me (I have a thing for flying/jumping insanely, mind), and the further changes are only likely to make it more bland for me.

Damn, times have changed. I got the Oblivion Collectors Edition for $65 on release day.

Waste of money in my opinion, art books just collect dust, the map is cool, the dragon is something I can get at the flee market for about 20 bucks, going with regular on this one, and who really watches the making of B.S?

Don’t forget that people who actually buy this collector’s edition will put the making of Dvd on Youtube like a week after it has been released. Also someone will probably just upload all the pictures in the book too. So all you get really is that map and the dragon statue.

They milked this too far..

Just pre-ordered it, can’t wait till november! Yes this is expensive, but I only buy collector’s editions for Elder Scrolls games. Still got my Arena mousepad, but I can’t wait for the Dragon Statue.

Bethesda would do well to sell the Dragon Statue separately as well, perhaps after a year or so. I think it would sell very well.
