  1. Kinda feel like brook about the whole collector’s edition shit. I kinda want to get this one but not to sure since it will end up being the same price as the standard edition within a month.

    • You guys get different content to us. Yet again you get a steelbook, we hardly ever get them, and you also get a statue. There are two versions of it again though.

      The Survival Edition which retails for $79.99

      and the Post-Pandemic Edition which is a GameStop exclusive and retails for $159.99

      • I would go for the Survival Edition as a day one if I decide to get any collector’s edition but if I waited I could get either for regular price.

  2. yawn… im so over all this special edition crap. None of it is particularly cool to me. The last special edition that had cool shit in it to me was GTA 4 with the black duffle bag and the metal lockbox. Maybe om too old for all this other shit. LMAO
