We know what's in the box. We have a pretty good idea how much it will cost. Other than not having any idea when it will actually be released, we are all set. So, the question is, is the Burning Crusade Collector's Edition going to be under your arm come release day, or will you be opting for it's cheaper, smaller boxed cousin?
Personally, I am going for the Collector's Edition. Why? I don't really know. It is not like I have spent hours and hours getting massive enjoyment out of my Warcraft 3 or World of Warcraft Collector's editions. Sure, they look OK on the shelf, I might flip through the art book once or twice, and maybe mess around with the in-game pet, but that is about it. Strangely, I don't regret buying either of them. Being the super-geek that I am, I just like knowing I have them. So I will buy the Burning Crusade Collector's edition, and be happy I did. Besides, I am marginally interested in the card game, so that makes it a little more worthwhile for me. And the mouse pad and in-game pet sound kind of cool as well.
What about you guys? Are you going for the CE? Or is an extra thirty dollars not worth the treasures in the box?
