Hello everyone,

 

so I was thinking buying the RDR2 Collectors Box for 100€. Hell, I don't even own a console. I really don't know if I should get it or not, any help?

 

Thanks y'all!

If you have the money, then yes, I say go for it. Since you don't get the game with it, not having a console works for you son.

Let's be honest, it's about £30-40 worth of stuff in a £100 package, no it's not worth it, but if you want it, get it, just remember that it doesn't include the actual game so that's another £60 to throw out for when you do decide to buy it.

I just see it as a bunch of trinkets really. None of the stuff included really impacts your gameplay experience so it's not worth it in my eyes.

It's missing a centrepiece to be worth what they're charging IMO, it needs like a statue or something, there's a cool assortment of trinkets in it but with just them, eh, I'm not convinced it's worth £90.

200 Dollars if you want the ultimate plus the box, which Do, rockstar is getting 200 dollars out of me for one game

Just get special edition. I would say ultimate edition but you guys know fully well that a couple months after the games out, the exclusive sh*t they included isnt gonna matter at all in online. So you'd pretty much be spending an extra 20 dollars for nothing.

If any edition is actually worth purchasing then it is the collectors edition simply because it doesn't affect the game in any way, but offers nice set of various physical goodies beautifully packaged in a box. I love buying such collectible items for the games, the standard deck of playing cards is very useful to me. 

But the problem is the price and the lack of the actual game in the package. 

Its not worth spending around 100$ for the edition if it doesn't include the game inside the box.

 

That metal box is so beautiful 😍.

But not going to pay for that alone.

Uh... if you like that stuff...

I'd end up losing everything and breaking the box

It just seems pretty steep to me. If it went the same as EA's recent collectors editions that came without a game, I'd wait for a month after launch and then purchase it really cheap, but demand seems insanely high for these things. The cards and paper products aren't really all that great, but the coin and bandana is what I'd be in for. If you've got a lot of money to spare and really want it, I'd say go for it, but it's only the coin and the game I'm interested in and I really don't see myself shelling out 220 Australian dollars for it :(

Hopefully they put out a collectors edition with a game bundled, then I'd be happy to pay.

I'm not going to buy the Collector's Box myself, I'm not too into collectibles like these. Having said that though, in my own opinion the "Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue" was what caught my eye: "This complete 150-page book is a replica of the edition found in stores throughout Red Dead Redemption 2."

 

Sounds pretty damn cool to me and would be worth more than a statue. But to each their own, of course!

I am definitely buying it, it's a limited edition. They have made a few thousands of these, compare that to the 20 million (excluding PC) game units they'll sell. In 10 years the box will be an antique.

If you're expecting to hold onto it to sell it later at an increased price, bad news, these will usually tumble in price for the first decade.

TBH it's not worth all the money. To put it more simply it's for people are: die hard fan >> regular RDR2 player or casual user. If you've been following up all the hype since last two years and want something memorable from the same maybe, get it. If not, there's not much of a reason that I see.

No, I am not planning on selling it later because It would be very dear to me. I probably won't even open the playing cards, just touch them every once in a while.

I guess I don't. I understand that if you have a ´good-looking blueray box of the wire or whatever you can put that on a shelf or something. a cool steel case for a game you frequently play/use is okay aswell...and if there's a poster of cover-art I really digg I might hang that on  a wall somewhere, but the rest is just not necessary to me.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm excited to put my RDRII UE steelbook in my Collector's Box, so that I can pretend it came with it lol!

And I'm sure Rockstar is excited that you're throwing that much money down for a product that SHOULD come with the game anyway. 😛 :D

Personally if you’re not a big red dead fan I wouldn’t get it. I’m getting it even though I know it’s a lot of money combined with the special edition of the game. October will be an expensive month for sure.

It'd be great value if it came with the game, but it's basically the same price (over here anyway) as the GTA IV special edition was that came with GTA IV and the physical content. Seems really steep for what it is. Under $100 I'd buy it, but not for over $150 then you have to get the game on top of that.

I'm disappointed with the collectors box. Nothing in it interests me. I was hoping for a cowboy hat and a replica gun and bandolier.

Not f*cking worth it money-wise, Other companies do alot more for less money for Collector's and Game together. Ubisoft gives alot, they give the Gold Edition of the game with all the contents, a Statue, Artbook, Soundtrack disc, lithographs and more, for 120$. the collector's box for 100$ is a f*cking joke.

Yup, a replica gun sure would have been dope as hell! 😃

I'm sure the anti-gun people would have a field day with that.

 

Plus, replica guns are still pretty expensive. Like "half the price of the collector's box" expensive, at least.
