Special ed - Worth the extra $?
 
Im gonna pick up my copy but i cant decide whether to get the special edition which costs more but has the art book, extra DVD and the game's soundtrack. To those of you who has the special edition (I know a lot of you do :D) is the special edition really worth the extra cash? If not i'll probably just go for the standard.

Yeah, the special edition is worth it, especially if you're in Singapore. In Hong Kong the regular version is about US$35, the special editon is around US$40 with free T-shirt + a diary note book. There are two special edtions actually, one is the Taiwan English+Chinese vesion with Chinese manual, and the Asia Pacific English version. The Taiwan version looks cooler because it has a slim metal case instead of the grey plastic case.

Im not sure about the price of the standard edition here, but my guess is S$59.90 at lowest. The special edition is S$15 more, and no there is no tshirt included.

I preordered the standard edition back when it was only $40. It'd cost me another $20 to get the CE now.

No thanks. :)

For me it was worth it. The Soundtrack CD is awesome, been listening to it going to sleep. :)

t-shirt and the note book are given out on first come first served basis, depending on the store. 59.9 SGD is about 42 USD, so 52 USD for sepecial edition, not bad.

My friend always buys the special edtions of a lot of games. I don't really know way. They sit there collecting dust and are worth not much.

Same reason people collect anything really. To have a collection. :p

I collect PC games, though I only go with the Limited\Special editions of a few games. Some time I'll have to take pics of my collection. :lol:
