No word on a special edition yet? It's the only reason I haven't preordered the game.

CE revealed.

The Collector’s Edition will be available via pre-order for $149.99 (US), €149.99 (Europe), £129.99 (UK), and $199.99 (Australia).

Okay... Cheapest place for the standard edition on the 360?

I had to turn that off after 6 minutes and 34 seconds. The cheering crowd is just too distracting.

I've just returned from a holiday, and the first thing I see is this laughable sorry excuse for a CE edition. The best part is this:

an intriguing dragon statue

..which is the nicest thing you could realistically say about that horrible piece of tat. Refreshingly honest PR there :lol:

The combat still looks pretty horrible in this, there's just no weight. They should go play Condemned. I'll probably specialise in magic to try to avoid it as much as possible.

I was wondering the same thing to be honest. With all the advancements they are making in how the menus look, you'd think they could spare some time to improve melee battles.

Everything else looks amazing though.

Hmm that is a pretty weak "statue". Especially for that kind of money. I think I'll get the Batman limited ed. Kotobukiya usually know how to make awesome stuff.

But apart from a silly ltd ed, the game is looking master. Will make the dreadful winter much less dreadful. GO Dragons!

I've never bought a collectors edition of a game in my life, in fact never even considered it but for some reason this calls to me. It must just be because im so excited about the game.

I'm guessing Ill get this on PC anyone know what sort of spec PC you will need to make it worthwhile over the 360 version ?

The smoked salmon actually made me go Mmmmmm, i'm hungry.

When this comes out. Day off. Big bag of snacks, some grape fantas, sound turned up... Nice.

4 years i've waited for this, and a glimpse of that video looks everything i wanted... as soon as he went into the caves, i turned off.

:omg:

I've got a few months to make up a character, i'm thinking a Scottish Red headed archer lass. The Red Fox :D

Anything mid-range pretty much. And that's to say nothing of mods etc. Console version is looking good though, no dig implied. Bear in mind most Bethesda games ship with crippling crash-to-desktop bugs and driver issues (moreso than most big releases) so be prepared to have some fun getting it running potentially.

Whats mid ranged these days?!

There is something about sitting on your sofa in front of the big screen that appeals though.... I'm torn.....

Hard to answer, anyone who built a 'gaming' PC in the last few years should be fine, but it's a new engine so no-one knows for sure. It equally depends on your desired resolution and your own personal standards with regards to performance etc. I suspect it won't be any harder to run than Fallout 3 was, it'll just have more overhead for better systems etc. (I.e. Fallout 3s 'high' might be Skyrims 'medium', perhaps).

Anyway, lols at the collector edition. Having a box and manual is bad enough, nevermind paying four times as much for a bigger box with a bloody plastic dragon in it.

Not really that excited about this any more. Just not sure if I can be bothered with what looks to be just Oblivion all over again but in a different map and with a few gimmicks.

I love Morrowind and Oblivion but just not sure I can be arsed to go through such a big gaming experience again, but with the actual gameplay (probably) not actually being any different.

I think the Bethesda RPGs work by basically putting you into a trance with the lovely graphics/scenery/atmosphere, so you don't notice that essentially all you are doing is moving between conversations and sub-par combat sequences.

I've spent hundreds of hours on them, but I think maybe (bar the completing the last part of Fallout NV downloadable content storyline when it's released) I've had enough.

Or more specifically, the chimps in that crowd that lap this shit up.

It's the slide across the floor when you chump an anonymous goon in the face with the sword that irritates. He, she or it just kinda bumps up against the wall and carries on.
