The Lavish Skyrim Collector’s Edition Costs Much More Than $29
Soaring high above the $29 price point suggested by Bethesda's Todd Howard on the wings of a 12 inch PVC statue of Alduin, the World Eater, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim collector's edition seems like overkill for an indie card battle game.

My mistake! I seem to have mixed up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with Scrolls, the card battle game from the makers of Minecraft. This is the collector's edition for the next entry in the beloved role-playing game series, guaranteed to devour the hearts and minds of countless gamers on November 11, before moving on to steal years from the modding crowd.

Along with the attractive statue, the collector's edition also house a making-of DVD and the mother of all art books, a 9 by 12 beast with more than 200 pages of stunning artwork.

The Skyrim collector's edition can be yours for only $149.99 this November, or you can save your money and buy almost five games when the prices finally get regulated."


  1. Eh since Halo 3 it's been standard for any extravagant edition of a game.

  2. It's because of the art book, You can find them in stores for anywhere from $20 to $90 depending on quality and the same goes for a good quality pvc sculpture.

    At least the title of the collector's edition is accurate, haha.

  3. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I can't afford anything new. I can't WAIT 'til the GOTY for this comes out, just to save money on DLC.

    Doin' the same with Dragon Age 2 (a.k.a. Bioware Hates P.C. Players), simply 'cuz you KNOW those bastards are going to have DLC before the year is out.

  4. Haha, nice jab at the Scrolls controversy. Anyway, this looks pretty expensive, but I'm sure there are plenty of rich super fans to buy this collector's edition.

  5. I have to admit, I want this on my desk

  6. I'm too drunk to understand this post.
