Bioware Details Mass Effect 2 Collectors' Edition

You've got the obligatory tin case, the 48-page Art of Mass Effect 2 in hardcover, the first issue of Mass Effect Redemption (comic book), and a making-of DVD. 

There'll also be some in-game perks not available through other means but details are sparse as to what they might be. Those of you looking for other in-game exclusives should look into pre-ordering as you can benefit from additional armor.

The CE version will retail for $69.99 on the Xbox 360 and $59.99 on the PC, which is about a tenner more than the standard edition price. Worth it if you'd class yourself as a diehard fan. Let the countdown to January 26 begin!

    Does anyone watch those making of DVDs? I really don't see the value in a lot of these collector's editions.

    Why is the PC $10 less?

    Yeah, those making of DVDs seem more awesome before you actually watch them :D. I watch them sometimes after I beat the game.

    Almost all PC games cost $10 less. Some cost even less. And in two months the average price will drop to $40.

    The only reasoning behind this is because they know they can sucker console gamers out of a few extra bucks. Think about it, the PC version is nothing more than a port from the console.

    $10 more for a CE? Not bad, I don't find the extras to be overly exciting for justify the extra $10 for myself.. But I think I might do it, I love Mass Effect.

    The reason console games are more expensive is due to the licensing fee they have to pay to the console maker. Where as it is not $10 a copy most game companies round up to the next nearest number to make more money off of their products.

    So, after spending $2,000 on my computer, it'll actually save me money as soon as I hit the 200 game mark?

    The cover art on the Collector's Addition is stellar as well. It's a small thing I know, but since I'm going to buy it regardless I'm excited.
