Wow, these 'limited' editions are getting worse. Amazon currently have the game listed for £25ish (just as an example) so you're paying £35 for for some coins/pins, soundtrack, notebook and some stickers in a nice box. Don't get me wrong they look nice, but not £35 nice!

Get in quick folks...a genuine Limited Edition that’s also stacked full too!

I posted this and I believe that this deal will go cold. But, in my opinion I think this is an actual limited edition, which comes with a numbered certificate. It will only become more valuable over time (my opinion).

It will only be valued by those who already own it.

While I see what you're saying, it still doesn't justify it. It still is over priced tat, and they seem to think that by putting a number on it that it justifies the high price point. Its nice seeing an actual limited edition but for fans who are buying it to keep they get ripped off. Would have been nice if they included a numbered figurine!
I used to collect lots of special editions (had over 100). Rarely do any hold value especially anything 360/ps3 generation and beyond. I sold most of mine and generally got a lot less than what i paid plus had to pay for extra packaging and postage. Because of the perceived value you might open this and carefully take the game out but leave everything else intact (like i used to) or keep it sealed.

I now just buy the basic version and enjoy that. This game was 20 quid on base.com i believe for the switch, the special edition bubble will burst.

Fair points- I’m not going to disagree. I suppose it just comes down to a matter of opinion

Did you you to post on ce.org?

I'm in the same boat used to collect them as well as press kits, and they all diminish in value. Once the "hype" has down died, the market gets flooded with the same item and the value just drops.

I paid £600 for Uncharted 1 press kit, sold it for £1400 to someone in dubai, only for 3 months later for the market to become flooded with press kits for £300 a piece!

Your right, but some do hold their value - generally ones that are limited in numbers. But this isn’t a guarantee. As I commented before I was pretty sure this deal would go cold, but I posted it anyway as having a love for this sort of thing, I felt I would have appreciated someone else posting it!

Short term some do..only if limited release.. not the AAA special editions.... longer term not so much.... but really is a lottery. Some standard games are now worth a fortune

Not all Limited Editions diminish in value - generally the ones that are limited in numbers like dark souls 3 prestige edition which cost a whopping £300 on release!

Ok the odd 1 or 2 might stay around original rrp or might have a little peak.

Quick search on ebay > sold.

Nothing there seems to have increased in value

Dead space 1 was the same.

So out of the 1000s of CE's out there, yes the odd 1 or 2 holds abit of value.

You said no collector editions held there value in your comment- I’m glad you realised your mistake.

I was abit harsh.

"dark souls 3 prestige edition" How much is that actually selling for then?

the 4 examples as i say, quick google > checking how much there ACTUALLY selling for, there was anything special compared to rrp.
Lots of collectors edition go up in value If left sealed. The key factors are they had a small production run and are from a popular well liked series of games. This is certainly limited enough but is the game popular enough now or in the future to drive up price? Probably

I brought dark souls prepare to die steellbook from zavvi for £17.99 and it now goes for over £300 so it does happen. Just not in most cases

Most are in general tat. I think the point most are trying to get at here is that you should only buy what you value and that these are games with some nice added extras, not an investment.

Fully agreed, theres no point in buying CE's for "value" purposes, let the scalpers do that.

Just buy what you like and enjoy it!

( thats why i never understood collectors who only collect sealed CE's, ive seen so many photos of just boxes, thats it, sealed boxes - but each to there own i guess!)

There is also a PS4 Limited Edition for the same price on Amazon

It’s not a CE worth £70 imo mate. If you want to preorder it’s also slightly cheaper from Shopto.
