RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 08/14/14
Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

Special Editions
Posted on Tuesday, September 11 2012 @ 15:10:15 Eastern

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.

There are some *****in’ special editions floating around. Sure, there are some whose only claim to fame is a tin case or an extra code or two, but there are some developers who love their creations enough to extend them into the physical realm and gamers around the world thank them for it. There are the common ‘Limited’ Editions like Gears of War 3 and Halo Reach (which, incidentally, is all kinds of awesome even though there’s no way it could be called limited), and there are common but expensive ones like the Call of Duty Prestige Editions.

But then there are the amazing and actually rare special editions that are really great (yes, every one of those words is a unique link). For the more expensive editions a gamer could expect to have to shell out around £130 (around $209, even though we all know it wouldn’t really be that much in America).
 
The most expensive Collector’s Edition award this year is not, as you may expect, going to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s Care Package despite it coming with a freaking quadrotor drone. That game is going to be £160 (or $180 if we ignore conversion and skip straight to America’s RRP).

No, the most expensive special edition this year (and probably most, if not all, other years too) is the Resident Evil 6 Leon Leather Jacket Edition. This severely "premium" limited edition is priced at a whopping £899, otherwise known as a bank account shrivelling $1340. For your money you’ll be one of ten people in Europe (as it’s only been confirmed for there and Japan) to own an authentic Leon Kennedy leather jacket replica made from high quality leather, four tablet cases, stickers, three DLC maps and, thankfully, a copy of the game.

Even though this is actually a limited version of the game is it worth the value of approximately four Xbox 360s plus a killer set of Turtle Beaches to grab? I think I’d prefer half a secondhand car.
