You realize this was the ORIGINAL CoD team? Not this new team that took over and kicked the old devs out, right? This was in the age before all the bloated DLC and buy this and premium edition crap, right? This is the old Infinity Ward team, NOT Treyarch.
Well, then I guess I will pass on a regular version as well. I am not a CoD gamer, either, so I am not the target audience. I do appreciate giant mech's, er, um titans though, especially back from the FASA days. I played a ton of MechForce back on the Amiga, but that was a much different game. We need a TBS Mech game! :)
I have blown my fair share of dough on Collector's Editions, but this is the most expensive one I can remember. Not QQing, because its not a game I am interested in. Just remarking that its got a big price tag.
I've never bought a collectors edition game and am not a maquette collector...but holy cow! That Titan is awesome! I ordered mine and can't wait! Seeing the video of the Titan model is what sealed it for me.
Honestly I agree that it is a considerable amount of loot. But if gaming or collecting are your hobbies, why not fork out a couple of big mac meals worth for a numbered collectable? It amazes me how people complain about cool stuff that gets released because of price when there are plenty of people who snatch them up.
Some of the items like the Splinter cell airplane or the COD night vision are just reaching. But statues and posters and art books are always resellable if you ever want to make your money back plus more.
