I don't have any modern ones except the Fallout 3 Lunchbox which I received as a gift, I do think it's cool though.

Here are some older ones:

Master System Disney Briefcase:

Lucky Dime Caper Limited Edition set with audio cassette and tshirt:

Image


Master System II Jumgle Book edition:

Not sure this counts as a limited edition pack but but you don't see many and I do think it's cool..

And i've got this Mega Drive blister pack with Smurf in it..

Resident Evil 6 Collector's Edition is down to £59.99 at GAME. Didn't the same thing happen with Skyrim CE this time last year?

This happens to all collectors editions in Game down the line. Give it more time and it will be the same price as a standard copy of the game.

It's a bit of pot luck though playing the waiting game and seeing how low it will go, by the time it hits the price you were waiting for there might not be any left.

Happened the the Fallout NV Special Edition, I bought it full price and a couple of months down the line it was on sale for £19.99 I tried to pick one up for the PC but every platform version was sold out. Great for anyone who was quick enough to snap one up not so good if you've been playing the waiting game and missed out, then you've got to contend with overpriced online places such as ebay.

Wow Lucky Dime Caper! I haven't seen that in years! Also I use to play New Zeland Story while waiting for channel 4 Beavis and Butthead to come on. I think I may have had that double pack back in the day...

I got one of those ammo tins earlier this year from a car boot. They look really good on the shelf.

Preordered The Bioshock Infinite Ultimate Songbird Edition, it's an infamous "Game Exclusive".

Came through from Genkivideogames a couple days back, now had the chance to open it up and have a look/play:

It actually plays really well, would recommend it as a decent shooter although for me the controls feel a little stiff. It looks pretty nice as well, apart from the fact the Neuroi aren't the most visually interesting enemies around - kind of remind me of those things in Starfox Assault. I keep meaning to start in properly on the great range of shmups for PSP, but there always seems to be something else I want.
