Spidey Fans Reel in Shock After Spider-Man 2 Collector’s Edition Demands $650 Price Tag
It was a disappointing announcement for all Spider-Man fans when it was made known that the Collector’s Edition of Spider-Man 2 will cost an absurd $650. Fans of the beloved franchise were left reeling in shock as the hefty price tag was a far cry from the regular editions’ $60 price tag.
This special edition of Spider-Man 2 includes a face sculpt of Peter Parker in his suit, the game’s soundtrack, art book and concept art drawn by Stan Lee himself, a digital copy of the game and several other exclusive items that were promised to fans.
Until this announcement, fans had already been eagerly awaiting the release of the game that marks the return of the Marvel superhero in a game. The long-awaited title, which will launch in September, has already broken pre-order records. However, even the hardcore fans were taken aback by the immense price tag.
Social media was abuzz with people discussing their feelings for the Collector’s Edition. Some expressed their appreciation for the added extras which are included in the package. Others suggested that the game developers ought to offer incentives to customers who purchase the Collector’s Edition, rather than hiking the price.
The gaming industry has become increasingly expensive over recent years, with some titles launching at prices exceeding $100, or even $200. As such, it’s not surprising that fans have begun to voice their concerns over the current state of the industry.
It comes as no surprise, then, that the announcement of an exorbitantly priced Spider-Man 2 Collector’s Edition would stir up such a storm amongst fans. It remains to be seen how the gaming industry will respond to this issue.
