It's the fall gaming season and every game is vying for your hard earned dollar. With so many games to choose from, already at the exuberant price of $59.99, why would you drop $99, $130 or even $150 on Collector's or Special Edition of a game?
Because it's shiny, that's why.
It seems every big game these days is getting a collector's edition, even if it's not an established franchise. Whether it's Lord of the Ring: War in the North, Gears of War 3, or Otemedius Excellent - everybody wants a bigger piece of the gamer's wallets.
