Here’s That Super Expensive Titanfall Collector’s EditionBy: Zach Walton - February 26, 2014
It’s becoming pretty standard to offer some kind of collector’s edition with any big name game release these days. Those collector’s editions generally only cost about $20 more over the standard edition, however, and throw in an art book and soundtrack CD. That’s not the case with Titanfall as its collector’s edition comes in at $190 over the standard edition’s price.
Announced last year, the Titanfall Collector’s Edition is a $250 box that includes the retail game, a hardcover art book, a Titan schematic, a certificate of authenticity and a massive Atlas Titan statue complete with pilot and two grunts on the base. It also lights up and can switch between blue and red.
As far as collector’s editions go, Titanfall may be the most expensive ever made. Generally, the most expensive tend to hit $150, but rarely go over that. The price wasn’t a deterrent, however, as both the PC and Xbox One collector’s editions are already sold out at pretty much every retailer. Of course, you have to account for the fact that some of those sales were made by scalpers hoping to make a nice profit off those who forgot to preorder when it was first announced.
Titanfall launches on March 11 for the Xbox One and PC. The Xbox 360 version launches a bit later on March 25.
