I get Special Editions for the making ofs mostly. I haven't watched the Crysis ones yet, but there have been some good ones. Like FEAR, Quake 4, Sam and Max, Halo series. I have to say the Bioshock making of has been the worst one yet.

The Taiwan version looks cooler because it has a slim metal case instead of the grey plastic case.
Dude, can you give me the links where I can get the collectors edition tin for those prices? I think Crysis is a game that deserves a collectors tin.

To get it at that price you have to buy it local here.

I just picked up my special edition copy last night.

And i didnt get the in-game APC vehicle unlock thing? But i thought that was only a pre-order special? All i know is i dont have any paper/thing which tells me i can unlock a multiplayer vehicle. Am i screwed? And i wasnt issued a receipt damnit.

Some day I'll have a little PC Gaming museum set up somewhere and I'll have heaps of old hardware and games on display, in chronological order.

If not, thats why you didn't get it.

And i also got a discount voucher for any 8600 and 8800 Gigabyte GPUs. Good thing too becase im gonna ask for a 8800GT this xmas.

You don't need to pre-order to get it. It's packed with the game. There should be a paper/card with the unlock code inside the box.
