"Stardew Valley Collector's Edition is coming to retail stores nationwide on April 11, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One! In addition to the full game, the Collector's Edition includes a Pelican Town Map, Mini-Guidebook by Kari Fry, and a code to download the Stardew Valley Soundtrack!"

Stardew Valley was a game we've all been following on Cheerful Ghost since I first heard about it February in 2013 and has since launched to crazy popular acclaim in the PC world. I love that it's getting a retail collectors edition, what I don't love is that it's only going to come out on PS4 and XBone. I know everyone already picked it up on PC, but I'd totally buy this if it came out on PC for the pack-ins and extra key.

I'm interested if people with modern consoles will be picking this up? Seems like a good way to get it if you haven't already and Stardew Valley Collectors Edition comes out April 11th only on PS4 and XBox One for $29.99.

If I got Stardew Valley on PS4 I'd probably just go digital. More than likely, though, I'll just wait for a future Steam sale.

Yeah. The PC copy would come with a Steam code, but I still like collecting boxes of things for some stuff.

Absolutely. However, Stardew Valley is definitely not something I would do that with. Especially if it's just a map and a guidebook (mini-guidebook at that). The soundtrack would be cool, but that's available without springing for a collector's edition. It also seems you can buy a much better version of the full guidebook at Fangamer (https://www.fangamer.com/products/stardew-valley-guidebook). Oh, and you can also buy the map on Fangamer (https://www.fangamer.com/products/stardew-valley-pelican-town-map). So, you spend a little more, but you get better items when you buy individually. The "collector's edition" just seems to be a gimmick.

What I mean is, THIS SPECIFIC collector's edition seems to be a gimmick. Some (most?) offer some exclusive cool thing, something actually worth seeking out as a collector. This Stardew Valley collector's edition offers things that are already available for purchase elsewhere, or something significantly less impressive, as is the case with the mini-guidebook. Whereas other collector's editions might be arguably worth the money, this one seems like a total ripoff. This would be more appropriately labeled as a "bargain edition" not a collector's edition.

Sure.

I think getting a smallerized version of what you said would be interesting if the lesser price point and ease of having it all in one place was something someone wanted.
