Burning Crusade out, Collector’s Edition worth a pretty penny

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, an expansion pack to World of Warcraft, was released at many Gamestops across the country at 12AM. The expansion pack alone costs $39.99, but if you’re into the game you really want the Collector’s Edition. The limited edition package sells for $69.99, but it comes bundled with a load of stuff for fans like the soundtrack, a behind the scenes DVD and the coveted exclusive Netherwhelp pet. On eBay prices for the collector’s edition have jumped up to double the retail price. Is the Collector’s Edition that rare that it’s sold out everywhere? Just how much is a Netherwhelp worth to a WOW player?

    I sold four of them a week and a half ago. One went for $275 (Buy It Now, even though there were plenty of ones that were cheaper and mine wasn’t even on the first page), one for $252, and two for $200.

    The price has calmed down a bit, but this is still ridiculous. Somehow I doubt Blizzard released the Burning Crusade Collector’s Edition in limited quantities, considering there’s plenty of auctions as it is for this one title alone. In this modern age, “Collector’s Edition” usually boils down to getting extra content and merchandise at a higher price, not that its limited in numbers.

    You can chalk this one up to the hype surrounding Burning Crusade even before its release. Let’s face it, anything that has the World of Warcraft name on it usually goes for a pretty penny.
