I had to cancel the Helghast Edition because it is just too expensive Sad

The only thing I wanted that was not included in the Collectors edition was the art book. Paying double the amount just to get it, does not justify paying that much I'm afraid.

However I do love the contents and the figures can be bought on Play.com. I'm getting the collectors edition from GAME unless I see it cheaper elsewhere.

If anyone is buying the Helghast edition and is thinking of selling the art book, I would be very interested in purchasing it from them.

I like the box art , i would prefer the Helghast edition just to be used as a bookend to my Mw2 NVG head & my REACH model in the middle lol. The best edition for most is the CE one , steelbook , music , theme & perks .
Thats my thoughts on the editions the game itself i couldn't care less about , its in a list with Fifa ,Tiger,CoD & Tomb Raider where the initial games were great but as they spawn new titles my interest has just got less & less, mainly dodgy extra fees , daft dlc on day of release , poor graphics , loading freezes or just bad rinse & repeat ethics to development . Unlike many i like a fresh challange or two to keep me interested & all the mentioned & Kz3 just don't have that for me , Move support may sound great but with seperate servers (maybe) how many will be using it in April & the demo vids make it look clunky not super precise .
Soz got carried away lol.

Helghast Edition is cool, but far too expensive.

I would like the Collectors Edition, but it doesn't offer much more for the £20 extra you are spending.

I'd just get the Collectors Edition for the box art. No joke, it's pretty darn durdy. But it really doesn't add much more for the extra £20 like GD says.

I'm just happy they are releasing them all at once. I hate it when they announce them over time cause I always end up having to buy it again and sell the other copy. >.<

I would go with the normal edition. The CE for the game doesn't seem to add much to warrant such a price as that, but the Helghast edition does look pretty good if you ask me and too expensive.
