Default LittleBigPlanet GOTY Edition

LittleBigPlanet apparently has a Game Of The Year (GOTY) edition here in the UK:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Little-Big-P...4829177&sr=8-3

Are we including GOTY editions in the database?

Besides nicer cover and (I think) all of DLCs...dunno. But it's worth of having it.

Not really, if you collect the franchise as a sub collection then it might.

I order the game like this:

1) Limited/Collector's edition
2) 1st press normal version of game
3) Reprints i.e 2nd or 3rd press before game of year edition
4) Game of the year edition
5) Reprints after game of the year edition.
6) Platinum or classic version of game.

Red = Most valuable, 1st print included as there may not be a limited edition.
Dark Orange = Has value but no where near 1st press version as it's been modified, either the artwork or the case.
Blue - Not worth it if unless a sub collection.
Gray - Least valuable as it a washed down version in cheap drag.

Monetry value, probably not. Most collector's will always want the first release. But like Gurpswoo1 says, it would have some kind of collectibility value to a collector who is interested in the franchise as a whole

Personally, if I were a collector (Which I am), I would be interested in knowing that a GOTY version exists as much as I would also be interested in whether a Platinum version exists. If I were a fan of the franchise and wanted every release of the game, then this information is invaluable!

In some cases, a GOTY version will sometimes include all currently available DLC to date. In other cases, it's just an excuse for a reprint or to adveryise the fact that the game has won X amount of awards since its initial release

Oh, I'm sure a hardcore collector of a franchise would want to acquire every iteration of a particular game, but the question is if a GOTY can be classified as a true CE or not?

we include every version of the game in the DB except for "standard editions" or re-releases that do not differ from the standard editions.

A general rule of thumb is: if the included content differs from the standard edition in any way... it should be considered for the DB.

Most CE Collectors might not find value in GOTY releases, however franchise collectors do see that value, as do typical gamers who are simply interested in buying the "best" (read: most content filled) version of the game.

We asked this question to twisted a while ago, He concluded that that if the game came with extra content over the normal version then it is classified as a unique edition.

To me this makes sense and as such should be included, even more so now that EA are releasing these games with just DLC and putting edition on the cover.

I guess the question is, does the fact that it not a limited run count against it?

I decided a while ago to never buy any game of the year edition, just the 1st press and collector's edition.

Edit - Have realised I posted too late.
