If you’re a die-hard fan of a series, you often need little reasons to buy a collector’s edition of anything. Take me, for example; I bought the Kingdom Hearts 2 collector’s edition strategy guide and that was one of the most worthless guides in my collection. Why do I have it? I love the Kingdom Hearts franchise just that much. It’s a little pathetic, yes, but I’m willing to live with that. So chances are, if you’re just as hardcore of a Gears of War fan, you’ve already bought the CE guide.
But just in case you’re on the fence, here are the differences between the two guides.
The Bonus Material – Comic Book
Bonus Material – Soundtrack Sampler
No picture, sorry, but the back of the CE guide does contain a sampler CD of the Gears of War 3 soundtrack. The sampler contains 9 tracks that are roughly a minute long apiece. It basically solidified something I already knew–I’m going to be buying the soundtrack. I adore video game soundtracks, and after listening to the Gears of War 2 soundtrack on Spotify, I knew both soundtracks would appear in my collection.
So there you have it. Are there enough bonus goodies to make the $15 price difference worth it to you?
