Oblivion collector's edition impresses

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is getting close. Bethesda Softworks released the packaging art and details of both the regular and collector's editions. The regular version will feature:
  • One DVD, no more, no less.
  • 48-page manual
  • a nice-looking map... ooh, this is gonna be big!
The Collector's Edition will add:
  • Different packaging (pictured) which reminds me a lot of the Lord of the Rings special edition DVDs.
  • A bonus DVD featuring the usual screenshots, renders, etc., but it also features a making-of documentary. Check out the trailer!
  • A collectible coin (a Septim).
  • A 112-page "Pocket Guide to the Empire."
It sounds like the guys at Bethesda have really gone above and beyond here...

... but wait! There's more! Bethesda have also posted a very in depth (I'm starting to see a pattern here) Q&A session with fans. If you were hoping you could see your legs in first-person, you might want to sit down.

You can't. But we're sure there's something else in their to please you.

(Update: EBGames lists the price for the regular version at $60 and the Collector's Edition at $70.)

I wish I had the time to put into an RPG these days. In my college days, I'd be all over this... These days, I'm lucky if I get an hour a day to put into games. It really does look quite impressive though.

Wait, so the normal retail version comes with "a nice map" and the special edition comes with no map?

is it just me, or does $70 feel like too much? the part that's crazy is that $65 doesn't.

Hey m3mnoch, nice to see you around here.

You're right, $70 is just toooo much. You're wrong though, $65 is too much also! :)

I'm sticking with $50, and not a penny more. These next-gen titles will have to come down in price, or else I'm getting em late. Unless the devs send us some to review... you reading Bethesda?

If anyone had actually read anything about this game you would know there is no multiplayer aspect to this game- live is just for content dowload and chatting etc.

UK price ? �60 in shops, �50 online would be my guess... easy

And the CE does come with a map- if you read properly above its says the CE version "Will Add"
