What do you g1's think, do these goodies entice you to pay $150 for the game?
Yea, I can't argue with that, but not all stores are as expensive as 699skr/103$ And especially not all games. Since collectors editions are usually at 699 skr-999skr ($103-$147) at most stores I check. And Pricerunner.se or Prisjakt helps alot to filter out those over the top expensive retailers.
That's why I use steam a lot
699 skr, those are the most expensive games for the xbox 360 and ps3 on gamestop.
Really? like what games? and please write the prices in both $ and SKr.
Yikes, I would have significantly less games if that were the case here
Well, games are already over $100 here in Sweden.
I've played Guild Wars on and off since early 2006 free PvP weekend. Got me pretty much hooked as well, but with every update for the past 3 years I've been enjoying it less and less. I am seriously hoping they've been reading emails and feedback when making the sequel.
I'm really excited about GW2. But holy crap...
That charr figure? THAT CHARR FIGURE?! Good sir, I refer to him as "Angry kitty-man who wields countryside-destroying sword's equally-destructive-sister".
And yes, it does look bloody sweet.
I played a bit of Guild Wars when it first came out. (Beta got me hooked) I'm still not sure about GW2, but every time I see anything about it I get excited for some reason. I already have enough trouble having time for TOR, but maybe I'll have to give this a try.
Also, that Charr figure is waaaay cooler than TOR's Darth Malgus one.
Your right. That's a typo, it is 112 pages not 12. I'd fix it if I had the power to, hopefully people read the comments
i'd prefer a special edition that didnt have such a huge ass statue, i appreciate that it exist but seriously wtf am i going to do with it
I never buy Collector's Editions. But for this game I will make an exception. Partly because so much care and attention has gone into this, but also because I adore the art direction and concepts, and music that Guild Wars is now synonymous with. After I got to play a solid build at last summers Eurogamer Expo in London, I pretty much decided there and then that I wanted the CE. Also, for an MMO that is almost guaranteed to have a thriving community, with continuous support, and no recurring monthly fees, the SE price-tag is such a bargain for people who just want to get their hands on it. Between this and Diablo III, I hope I get to see sunlight in the next year..
In the past the one thing I was sure at, was that I would get the Guild Wars 2 collectors edition when released if it has any. The the CE got revealed and I realised that it's 70$ more expencive than I thought it would be because of a giant figure! What about the normal people who don't spend 70$ on f*ing figures?! What about us Anet?!
Let's hope that they reveal a cheaper CE without the figure, or replace it with a full artbook or something!
Just a quick comment, but you're missing a hundreds digit with that "making of guild wars 2" book. It's a 112 pages, not 12. =P
if only the most important school year of my life wasn't next year,I'd buy this sooo much.
Do want! but that 150$ tag is a lot :/
