Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Edition full of stuff you don't need

Today, Bethesda announced the contents of the Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Edition, which is now available for pre-order in North America. The box contains eight poker chips (including "the game’s highly coveted 'Lucky 38' platinum chip"), a deck of cards, a hard cover graphic novel which tells the events leading up to the game's story, a making-of DVD, and, of course, the game. All that for $79.99! Yeah... you don't really need all that. But we won't lie, it looks cool.

If you do pick it up, let me know if I made it into the making-of documentary on the DVD. I was watching a demo of the game with a big crowd of gamz jarnalists as cameras were being swung about like buzzing flies. Just look for the skinny guy in plaid and too-tight jeans. Oh wait, that was half the room.

    Lol at the flaming faggot Jaybronee. This isn't being made by Bethesda. It has the same engine, which will be a thumbs up from most players. If you liked Oblivion, you will like Fallout 3. And the same goes the other way around. If you liked Fallout 3, you will definitely like New Vegas. Like someone said above, it is a good price for a bunch of stuff you don't need, but if you are a fan of the Fallout lore and story, you should probably get it. It is a way better deal than Hardened edition or the Heroic Edition of Halo Reach. Fallout New Vegas is going to be up in my Top 5 games of 2010 along with Red Dead Redemption, Halo Reach, Call Of Duty Black Ops, and Fable 3 if that comes out this year. Im not sure. Also, anyone know if you can pre order this now at Gamestop? The collectors edition I mean, not regular.

    Fuck Bethesda and Fall Out. It looks like it took them 30 minutes to change the scenery from Elder Scrolls to Fall Out and charge us $60.00. Then, PS3 owners get screwed from the jerk-offs at Microsoft and Bethesda on the DLC. Who wants to wait a year for DLC while the 13 year olds get to play it on their RROD 360's?!

    @AXELSTORM44 But you did get COD Classic for free. That's why I got the Hard (huh-huh, hard, huh-huh) Edition.

    Just as you mentioned the collector's edition is actually fairly reasonably priced given the crazed cost that some of them have. As a huge Fallout fan (not really 3, but I still own that one) and a Vegas resident I think I may just have to pick this one up (more so for the fact that it's another Fallout game rather than what it includes, the chips and cards are hardly anything special). However I doubt I'll buy it when it releases as more and more of these large box items are released in huge quantities, take up tons of shelf space and get marked down pretty quickly. I dropped close to 100 bones on WAR's CE (which I admittedly love) and it's now down to $14... NEW. That's cheaper than the damn basic box costs. Unless it's one of those games that will sell out like the WoW CE I think I'll be patient and save a huge chunk of change on getting it later on down the road.

    Yeah, I'm gonna get the Halo: Reach limited edition (Dr. Halsey's journal you say? *drool*) for the same price, so this is a pretty reasonable price for a collectors edition with this much extra stuff.
  • AFTERLIFEJOSH - May 12, 2010 3:38 a.m.

    Kind of want to get it, but something tells me there is going to be many great games coming out this holiday so i don't think i can justify the extra dollars.
  • SeattleSound - May 12, 2010 12:43 a.m.

    This game is going to take up a lot of my weekends.
  • AXELSTORM44 - May 12, 2010 12:30 a.m.

    its better than MW2's hardened edition... a metal case with a book you look at once for the same price as this.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - May 12, 2010 12:03 a.m.

    It actually isn't overpriced, in my opinion. Not the typical $140 or whathaveyou.
  • Cyberninja - May 11, 2010 11:56 p.m.

    sounds reasonably for a collectors edition
  • tokengirlstfu - May 11, 2010 11:45 p.m.

    I'm getting it! I was alrady getting the game and now I'm getting the $80 edition. It will right next to my Fallout 3, Alan Wake, GTAIV boxes on my shelf.
  • lymanzaar - May 11, 2010 11:39 p.m.
