The strange thing is, I didn't remember Calamity Trigger getting a LE. The only version I remember is the standard release with the awful front cover. The LE has the proper logo on the box though so...yeah, weird.
Great deals mate, the artbook in Continuum shift is particularly nice. I picked up the US LE release of Blazblue and the only time I've ever seen the UK LE for sale is battered used copies in HMV! It cropped up as a surprise for me too, they're going to look cool on your shelves.

They'll never be worth anything. :lol:

Both will be obsolete when BBCS:EX is out anyway. Got a preorder on that. :D

No sign of an LE yet though, not that I care, but there has been before.

It's not about how much they'll be worth in the future it's about all the pretty but useless tat you get in the sets! ;)

There was a much wider distribution of both on the internet seeing as stores like GAME etc would only hold a few copies of such a low profile release. If i remember rightly the front cover for the first was fanmade after they won a competition (i think). That same artwork will be on your game case inside the LE. Continuum Shift has the same artwork on the game case as the box does (black background with logo).

During the week I ordered a complete copy of Doom on the Jaguar. A mate of mine in the US also ordered me a complete copy of Doom II for the Tapwave Zodiac - so pretty soon I'll have all official console releases of the Doom series.

I also ordered some custom Battlefield 3 t-shirts with our clan/squad name on them.
