Sounds like a cool collectors edition, but I haven't been excited for a final fantasy game in a long time.

After buying the Mass Effect 3 CE against my better judgement, I can say that I wouldn't buy another one. I don't want the assorted stuff that comes with it, I just want the game.

I'm somewhat tempted by the Aeris DLC though.

Anyway, I was planning on getting this straight away but I might leave it since my backlog is huge. I really enjoyed FF13 and 13-2 actually. Not as good as some FF games but still pretty good overall I felt.

Too bad the pocket watch has the cheap looking background for its clock face. Would have been so much nicer being plain white with Roman numeral numbers but hey maybe that's just me

Wow... A lot of money... For nothing!

Dragonball z battle of z limited edition (goku edition) comes with a statue of goku.. For the same money...

So why can't this ?

In this day and age where almost everyone has an iPhone, who the fuck is gonna want a pocket watch? It would just sit around collecting dust.

All CE stuff sits around collecting dust unless it's DLC that people can use immediately. As such your post is invalid.

#7 thats the point of collectibles. they sit around collecting dust. in 10 years someone comes over, sees it and says "cool collectible, bro, ill give you $100 for it." and you give it to him for the benjamin cuz you paid $100 for the whole shebang.
