I have a confession to make: I pretty much never buy collector's editions of anything, especially MMORPGs. Call me cheap, I guess, but there's rarely anything in them I want to pay extra for. The one exception I can specifically recall? It was TES4: Oblivion. I can't even remember why I did it, but I did. And I saw my kid playing with the special coin/septim the other day, so that survived four household moves in the meantime, apparently.
The Exiled's Alexander Zacherl has collector's editions on the brain today too. Here's the question he's posed us:
"Why do you (not) buy founders packs / collector's editions for MMOs? Do you get them for the exclusives, early access or just for a bargain subscription/credits?"
Let's talk CEs! Do you buy them? If so, why not? If not, why not?
