Little Big Planet 2 and Final Fantasy XIV Collector’s Editions


It’s good to see that companies like Sony and Square-Enix are beginning to realize that Americans love lots of collector’s items packed in their games as much as Japanese gamers do. Let’s just hope that companies continue to do so.

Let’s begin with Little Big Planet 2 first which has been announced to be released on November 16 at select retailers at $79.99. They are also stressing that it’s going to be a limited run. The collection will include:

  • A copy of Little Big Planet 2
  • A set of Little Big Planet 2 book ends or “game ends”
  • A 7” Sackboy plushie
  • One stop shop for DLC + more- and in regards to in-game content, the Collector’s Edition comes with 11 different pre-order costumes that includes (which can also be received in the regular release version, in different combinations, depending on where you pre-order the game):
    • Disney / Pixar’s Toy Story 3’s “Aliens” Sackboy Costume
    • Disney’s TRON: Legacy “Clu” Sackboy Costume
    • The Muppets’ “The Great Gonzo” Sackboy Costume
    • PlayStation’s “Ratchet” Sackboy Costume
    • PlayStation’s “Clank” Sackboy Costume
    • Even More Animals’ “Crocodile” Sackboy Costume
    • Even More Animals’ “Vulture” Sackboy Costume
    • Even More Animals’ “Cobra” Sackboy Costume
    • Even More Animals’ “Mandrill” Sackboy Costume
      • And exclusive to LBP2’s Collector Edition
    • PlayStation’s “Jak” Sackboy Costume
    • PlayStation’s “Daxter” Sackboy Costume
    • 5 exclusive LBP2 PSN Avatars

Continue for Final Fantasy XIV Collector’s Edition details:

Now Final Fantasy XIV has been announced to be released September 30, 2010 for the PC version which will be priced at $74.99 and March 11, 2011 for the PS3 version with pricing to be announced. Final Fantasy XIV Collector’s Edition will include:

  • A copy of Final Fantasy XIV
  • FFXIV game manual
  • Early Access to the game. The game will be open for play 8 days sooner than the Standard PC Edition. Which would actually put the release date at Sept. 22.(Timing of access subject to initial server capacity.)
  • Preorders will include a reward code to receive an exclusive in-game item, the Onion Helm
  • A special behind-the-scenes documentary DVD
  • A Final Fantasy XIV branded security token for use with your regular password
  • A Travel Journal filled with pages of never-before-seen concept art
  • A voucher to receive a fully personalized Right of Passage Certificate, each stamped with a unique serial number
  • Amano Cover- A special PC Collector’s Edition Illustration by Yoshitaka Amano
  • Free gameplay for 30 days

That’s not bad for a Collector’s Edition. Now is the inflated price going to be worth it in the end for both of these games? Only time will tell for sure. I’m just happy that American gamers are receiving the extra effort that goes into these improved editions and the game companies no doubt enjoy taking more of gamer’s money in the process.
