Battlefield 1 Collector's Edition doesn't come with the game

28 posts in this topic

uhhhh... really EA!? 

 

Amazon's exclusive collector's edition for Battlefield 1 costs $129.99 and doesn't include Battlefield 1.
 
Available for all three of the game's formats, the item's listing is pretty specific: "Battlefield 1 Exclusive Collector's Edition - Does Not Include Game".
 
So what does a game-less video game collector's edition include? Let's see (I'll help annotate):
  • 14" statue (not the game)
  • Exclusive steelbook (not the game)
  • Cloth poster (not the game)
  • Deck of playing cards (different game)
  • Messenger pigeon tube containing exclusive DLC (for the game, but not the game)
  • Patch (not the game)
  • Premium Pacakaging (not the game)
 
For the price of, well, a full-price video game, you can grab the disc alongside the collector's edition for $189.99. Then there's the $209.99 Deluxe edition, which appears to make the sole addition of the Early Enlister version of the game - as you may have guessed, that's usually $20 more than the base game.

It's pretty ridiculous that they're selling a "Collector's Edition" of Battlefield 1... without Battlefield 1. All it seems to be is a way to get more money out of people by forcing them to buy the game separately.

Ha ha ha ha ha.... This has to be some sort of joke! EA are doing some next level trolling of their fans. My fav comment you made was about the DLC being included. Wow just, wow.

Here I was thinking they'd be able to have a year without stupid. Silly me, this is EA.

Spending money on video games without actually playing said video games?

Sounds like the NeoGAF edition.

Honestly, i appreciate the idea.

If we're being honest, collector's editions are just merchandise. There's no practical reason to bundle it with the game itself other than maybe providing an incentive to preorder. Talking about preorders, the very idea of preordering a collectors edition to a game that might very well end up being shit blows my mind. With this we can just buy the game and "upgrade" to the collectors edition if we like it enough without having to buy the game itself twice.

The pricing's another debate but it's not like this is the first time EA has done an overpriced collectors edition.

I don't see the outrage. Maybe someone wants to buy the game digital but still wants the collectors items? You know there is a version that does actually contain the Battlefield 1 disc right?

I think it's a good idea if you want the LE, but don't want the game anytime soon. You could buy that now instead of the 190 dollar version that includes the disc and wait for a few months for the price to drop on the disc.

Going by some of their recent efforts, it will be eight months & 432 patches before the game is playable anyway :)

Well they also did this with Mirror's Edge Catalyst collectors edition so this isn't the first time.. Also collectors edition is just for physical video game related objects. I'm sure there are other bundles that has the disc.

If we're being honest, collector's editions are just merchandise.

 

Wait... what? The collector's edition of a thing, is not the thing it's a collector's edition of?

 

The whole point of a game's collector's edition, is that it's an edition of the game with stuff added that appeal to collectors. They can try to call it whatever tf they want, but it's not a CE of the game, it's a merchandise set.

 

I don't mind the fact that there is such a merchandise set, I don't care about it one way or another, I just think calling it a CE is stupid. But I suppose they're just traying to come up with more and more ridiculous stuff, just to stay mentioned in games media.

Stay poor, bitches!

On a more serious note, this is just for value purposes and I'm cool with that. As a collector, I know I wouldn't be happy if someone charged me a fortune for a open collectors edition.

Bethesda did it with one of their games and the Child of Light CE didn't have a physical version. Neither did Hitman. EA's hardly the only one. Doesn't mean it's not bullshit.

This is just ridiculous. Why buy a CE without the game. Also, why is the patch listed as CE content? And here I thought EA wanted to redeem itself.

Don't listen to click-bait IGN articles, there's 2 variations of the collectors edition. Depends whether or not you're getting the game digitally or separately from somewhere else.
