Video Game Collector’s Editions That Weren’t Worth the Money
Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition
Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV was an event jam-packed with cool announcements. There was the film, anime series, release date (which ended up not being met), and a super-duper expensive Ultimate Collector’s Edition for Final Fantasy XV.
The Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition represents just how insanely expensive these things can get, setting fans back a whopping $270. That’s a lot of cash to drop on one game.
What you got for your hundreds was nice and all: physical copies of the anime and movie, a soundtrack CD, and a Play Arts Kai statue of Noctis. Certainly, a nice selection of goodies that would all add up if bought individually. But to $270? I don’t think so.
A big and very valid complaint was that it didn’t come with the recently announced Season Pass, which would set you back another $25. Including this would have somewhat helped justify the hefty price tag a little more —and Square Enix would later fix this in the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
