I used to rather enjoy collector's editions, but I haven't seen very many worth picking up in a long time.

Maybe I am looking through rose tinted glasses here, but I remember getting the pewter figure guys that came from Doom, C&C TS, Red Alert 2 etc for just a small amount over the regular game cost. You usually had to pre-order it, but that was about it. It might come with a numbered different looking box and maybe a mousepad or a soundtrack CD, but it was just neat little things for ~$10-$15 more.

This? This is asking wayyyy too much more for very little additional stuff. If they would just go back to small, but neat, little things I could put around my desk I might be much more interested. Even if 76 had been great, this would have still been a mess.

Ah yeah that must be the canvas shortage everyone is talking about.

My favorite comment from the article. Seriously $200 and you get a helmet that looks one step above a kid's Halloween mask and nylon bag that looks more like a small green hefty sack. I've never thought the uber collector's editions anything but a gimmick for those with too much money and/or too little brains, but at least the stuff generally looks kinda cool. This looks like some off brand toy a $5 and under store would sell.

Well ok then. And here I was disappointing I didn't get in on a FO CE PC preorder. I guess now I'm not knowing all this.

I do buy CE's when I actually purchase a new game while it's still "new". (yes, I either spend 100-200 dollars for the whole CE experience or I wait it out until it's like 5 bucks. A man of extremes, what can I say?) I am glad I skipped this game. It's just a big fuck you to the customers all the way around.

Nothing about FO76 was as promised. Why would the special edition be any different?

And how is this different from the $60 dollar game?

Bethesda, rotten to the core.
The bag that people actually got suckered into purchasing was too expensive, ie. not profitable enough. Greedy phucks.
