It sounds good, but I'm not sure if I'd cough up the $79.99 they're asking for it.

A collector's edition that doesn't contain one or more exclusive DLCs? I fully support that! I may even buy it just to do my part to encourage game companies to STOP selling more expensive "enhanced" versions of games.
