Probably why it's not labeled an actual "edition" of the game like the Special or Ultimate editions. Just think of it as a random box of collectibles.

Seems like people would feel better if it cost $160 and included the game.

I'm with you on this and I'm willing to bet there's a lot of disappointed players out there with a bit of a sour taste in their mouth wondering if Rock Star Games is going the route of "Milking A Game For Every Penny They Can Get" route like others have. At the same time they and others know some out there don't care what it costs and they're willing to spend anything. The question will be....is this something outside the game itself or will there be more of a Pay-to-Win, Loot Box, Spend Real Money tucked inside the game which will be a major turn-off.

OMG... lol

They are doing what other games have done before with Special/Ultimate editions that do not include the game.

This is actually better for the consumer that prefers to own digital games instead of physical.

Every T-Shirt for the game should also include a free copy. OUTRAGE.

Seriously, still don't understand why you guys are upset over the selling of merchandise. Unless i'm not seeing something, it doesn't look like the box includes anything exclusive in game, which I could understand complaining about a little more.

Nobody here is upset but most of us can agree that it is stupid. Can we not comment on here how we dislike this practice just as you don't see a problem with it?

Who said you couldn't comment? I'm just responding to a few posts acting like this is some sort of unheard of or evil practice. Sounds like a few of you (plus everyone else complaining online) are taking this poorly because it was announced along side the actual editions of the game and associating this Collector's Box with the Special Editions of the game itself.

So what's stupid about this again? How is it any different selling any other merchandise related to a game, like a t-shirt, hat, action figure, or the other random goods sold by Rockstar or other companies? I'm genuinely curious, because it sounds like you, Oldboy, or K&AJones seem to disagree.

They should have just called it the Red Dead Redemption 2 physical loot box

Gotta say, I'm not seeing an additional $40 worth of content in that Ultimate Edition, and that's as a huge fan of CE Steelbooks.

re: Red Dead Redemption 2 —> 10/26/18

I'm not upset they're doing this as I pointed out players might be disappointed in Rock Stars Games for this approach...which by the way Battlefield 1 did the same thing and that is going for dirt cheap right now. But some will buy it as well....maybe or not....

If they want to sell merchandise...fine because all have sold somethings tied to a game. You can go to the Warframe site and see all sorts of gadgets and stuff but you won't find some high dollar "Collector Edition" let alone one without a game. Blizzard sell various items tied to games. You can still find plenty of past Collector Editions on sale on Amazon that might actually still have the game. I think it's a bit surprising they didn't do one like others that had a nice resin statue; of Morgan, replica of a old "six shooter, horse something.

Even the $80 edition seems like shit that should already be in the regular edition game.

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 —> 10/26/18

I remember Nintendo doing this for Wii's Punch Out. I ended up buying the Collector's box on clearance during Christmas of 2009 on Amazon for about $7.99. I imagine the Red Dead II collector's box is going to end up on clearance aisles too.
