Would You Buy Assassinís Creed Origins for $800?
Are you super into Assassin’s Creed and you have a bunch of extra money? Like, $800 extra money? That’s how much the Legendary version of this game is. To be fair it does have quite a bit that comes with the pack including a 28 inch statue of Bayek and his hawk Senu. It also comes with the season pass and a lot of other goodies including an amulet, lots of artwork, a map, and some in game content. And the game itself of course, steel case and all.
It’s a really nice set. You get a lot of stuff with this version of the game. To top it all off, there are only going to be 200 of this particular version. And the statue itself has a ton of detail and it looks really nice.
But is this really worth 800 bucks? You could buy a new PS4 and a VR headset with that. Or you could buy a pretty decent TV. You could even get a decent computer. You could buy a ton of games with that amount of money. I’m all about collectible versions of games. In fact I’d say I’m a bit of a sucker for them. But $800?
Is it really worth it for something that is probably going to collect dust somewhere? Maybe I’m not a big enough fan of Assassin’s Creed. And maybe my pockets aren’t very deep to begin with. Even if I did have the money I’m not sure I’d use it for something like this. Maybe I’m just getting old and jaded. I think I’ll keep my $800 for something else though.
In all seriousness, I’m not sure if what comes with this is worth $800. I mean, ya, the statue is pretty big and has a lot of detail. There is market for these big, highly detailed and expensive statues. The rarity of this edition really jacks up the price too I suppose. 200 of these isn’t very much in the scheme of things. I’m sure there are 200 people with money to buy something like this.
Hey, if you have the money to splurge on something like this then go for it. Let me know if it was worth it or not. I think I’ll spend my money on the slightly less expensive $160 dollar Dawn Collector edition.
Do you think this set is worth $800? If you had the money would you get this?
