Smile Amazon Offers Exclusive Ghostbusters Slimer Edition

Proving once and for all that pricey collector's editions don't have to cater exclusively to cat helmet enthusiasts and fans of replica weaponry, publisher Atari has revealed the contents of their Amazon-exclusive Slimer Edition of the Ghostbusters videogame.

Along with the game itself, the $129.99 bundle ($109.99 for the Wii version) will include a treasure trove of exclusive swag. Listed on Amazon's product description page are an appropriately gross-looking bust of Slimer designed by the movie's original sculptor (including a signed certificate of authenticity), a light-up Ecto-1 keychain, a pack of Ghostbusters Minimates, and a set of Ghostbusters-themed console skins.

That's quite the haul for a videogame adaptation of a 25-year-old movie license, but is it worth the hefty price tag?

Bit too pricey for my liking. Yet to see a better SE than the Fallout lunchbox.

That's just way too much for what they are giving you... and I wouldn't want it anyway.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

But that's just because I'm a stinking rich European, living in a totally over-payed apartment, drinking 3 pints of ale and wearing fine Italian shirts.

Some of these collector's editions are starting to get out of hand on pricing. This and Batman are over $100, RE5 was $90... I liked it when CEs were just $10 more and you got a nice case and a couple of extras.

LMAO. They start by saying "Hey look! We're proving once and for all that Collector's Editions don't just mean expensive, extra plastic shit" and their evidence is, "Look at all this plastic shit they'll give you"
