Wonder if it will be nice or not nicely made and fall apart in a week? :(

Anyone hear much on it?

Game is going to be fun as heck though!

Probably crap like the Mirrors Edge one.

This interests me too as it is one of the only things you get extra for the 15$ more then just the season pass costs for the ultimate edition.

I hear that. Only pic I see of it is a small pic so hard to say.

Also hope the Collectors Box is nice plastic and not cheap cardboard. It really has a chance to be one of the best collector's edition I ever purchased.

Splurged on the Borderlands Loot Chest one. Wow. Was very nice overall.

Haha, not sure I've seen the term, "nice plastic" before.I have a feeling it will be, or cheap aluminium/metal to give off the feel of a proper lock-box.

Gotta say I'm jealous of the Borderlands Loot Box, they sold out within days!

I bet its made of Tyvek lol.

price it out 99$ vs 159$

The ultimate gets everything the 99$ one gets plus
Season pass $40
1200 bits-$15 (assuming its same as MS points value-wise)

Which leaves $5 for the bag.

Lifetime of ridicule while sitting on the bus with the bag...Priceless.

My Ultimate Edition only cost me 63, which is about $95. How come your Ultimate costs so much..?

Well in U.S. we got 3 versions.

$59-Standard plus pre-order stuff

$99-Collectors Edition includes skins/guns/preorder stuff/boosts/statue

$149-Ultimate Edition includes above plus season pass/1200 bits/messenger bag

I don't know what comes in your Ultimate.I do know from previous games that UK gets shafted usually on a few of the bonuses.

So to correct myself...if bits is equal to MS points your actually saving $5 and the bag is free...So Tyvek might not be too far off or at the least materials known to the state of California to cause cancer in rats...lol

P.S. please understand my bag rag is just in jest.

Take it you ordered of Amazon.co.uk? If so there was an initial price reduction on the UE then it went back up to full price just to drop again.

For UK'ers it makes no sense not to get the UE.

63 total

40 for the game leaves 23

Season Pass is 12 I think so that leaves 11

For 11 you get a ton of stuff! Best Collectors Edition ever! (for value)

Season pass is 3200 MSP's so its even better value than that! :-)

Well Amazon UK sells UE edition for 62.46 and to sum everything up...
zavvi.com in uk sells basic edition for 34.98, season pass costs 3200 MSP thats around 25, then there is hellbug statue and messenger bag which frankly I have no idea how much would they cost on its own but lets see... 34.98 + 25 = 59.98 and then 62.46 - 59.98 = 2.51
Hmmm 2.51 thats whats left from UE edition after getting the obvious out of the way. Whats left is the bag, hellbug statue, soundtrack, art book, VBI Contract and
Two Defiance post cards all of which are merchandise not digital and all of them fit in, in 2.51 in UK.
(all prices in British Pounds)

The drop box from the last COD BOPSII special edition was very nice, similar to the borderlands one. Big plastic box.

The large box everything comes in isn't that great. Inside is the messenger bag, which really is what it's called; a messenger bag. Picture a fold/velcro top on a paperboys bag. Thing seemed sturdy to me. But back to the boxes, the UE box INSIDE the big one is actually solid. The top "peels" back like magnets with grips on the side.
