Catalyst Collector's Edition Priced, But Is The Cost Too High?
Collector's Editions are common, as are high price tags.
But perhaps this particular price tag is simply too high, despite the relative awesomeness of the package itself.
Publisher Electronic Arts has announced the Mirror's Edge: Catalyst Collector's Edition, which is exclusive to GameStop in North America and to GAME in the UK. The bundle includes the following:
- Adult Faith/Young Faith diorama
- Exclusive Steel book
- Exclusive lithograph
- Set of 10 concept pieces
- Temporary logo tattoo
- Temporary Faith arm tattoo
- Storage box
EA says this edition was created to "help foster player's affinity with our heroine, Faith, as she grows up and makes a stand against oppression." That's all well and good but as some sources are noting, gamers aren't too enthusiastic about the exorbitant $200 price tag (£159.99 at GAME, which is comparatively more expensive). Thing is, people are saying that despite the limited edition and well-made trinkets, they just don't seem to be worth that cost.
What do you think? If you're a fan of the series and this Collector's Edition appeals to you, would you spend the money? Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, which is not a true sequel but a full-fledged reboot, is scheduled to launch on February 23, 2016.
