come on guys, a pamphlet, behind the scenes videos, and a couple of in game items?
I'm so disappointed alot of ppl think these "collectors" edition are anything especial.
Just ONE generation ago these stuff was either packed on regular editions with out much fanfare or it wasn't done at all. But you weren't charged some BS items that don't make it collectors editions.
its getting even worst now that if you want to play a demo you have to pre-order.
This generation has a shift from intensive content (like a unique armor) being something you unlocked during the game, adding re-playability (to what is probably an already addictive and fun game if you accomplished said feats in the first place) to having to pay for it by either buying DLC post-purchase or giving your money early pre-purchase for a "pre-order".
"Achievements" and "Trophies" help reinforce this.
