Default Re: Crysis 2

Honestly, CEs are only worth what people are willing to pay for them after release.
this is controled by 2 factors
1. the desirability of the game (usually based on the fan base and how much replay value the game has)
2. the quantity of the release (lower quantities = more valuable)

I can't comment on the desirability of Crysis, FPSs tend to be middle of the road between Sports titles (very low replay value) and RPGs (very high replay value)
the Nano edition was extremely limited, as it wasn't advertised at all and it was only available to those who explicitly pre-ordered it through the official online store.

with that said... a quick search on eBay shows that it's already getting $300-$450 on the open market... so I would say YES it was definitely worth the $150 price tag, and if you're somehow able to still get one for $150... BUY IT.

I think the nano edition is packaged in a hideously oversized box, it would be very hard over the years to keep that box in pristine condition, i know the backpack is large and actually its my favourite item in that edition but seriously where the hell would you put that box lol? the size probably puts some people off?

Anyway, considering what you get with the nano id say its worth the retail price, UK prices i believe were £119 @ Game.co.uk i cant remember for sure, put one on ebay now sealed and you should profit, taking ebay/paypal fees into account should you go that route, im not sure exactly where i stand on the type of return you could make, i dont think it will be massive, as always condition is paramount

yeah I wasn't too impressed with the bag, it is technically a LAPTOP bag and it might actually be useful for that task if it didn't look like it was made for a child. I would have thought something military styled would be much more appropriate than something that looks vaguely like part of a nanosuit (but mostly like something from GI-Joe, Transformers, or some other child's action show)

I think it took 3 AAA batteries, either that or 3 AA batteries, I don't really remember which... Batteries were not included.

If you look at the pictures I took it was shipped to me in a large cardboard box I only took it out of the box to do the photographs and immediately after it went right back in the box. I plan on keeping it in that box unless I can actually find a shelf large enough to display it. Similarly my DeadSpace Ultra Edition is in it's original shipping box too.

*** Added the MediaMarkt Limited Edition for PS3 360 and PC ***

according to this here: http://www.mediamarkt.de/ent/games/story.php?id=2055
it was available for all 3 platforms.

***Added the French SteelBook Edition for 360 and PS3 ***

I couldn't find any evidence of a PC variant.
