Because Best Buy’s warehouse is located in the same city where I live, I got this as a next day delivery.
The collector’s edition comes with a mini artbook & a four CD soundtrack. This is the complete soundtrack. I got the Japanese LE version of the OST already & I think the tracks should be the same. I may do a difference between the two versions, but it would be a major disadvantage to the North American version as it’s really the game being the main attraction.
If you preordered from Best Buy, you get the preorder bonus Final Fantasy XIII Episode i novella.
It’s basically between the game & the cardboard packaging. This basically connects or fills the gap between Final Fantasy XIII & XIII-2’s stories. Out of all the preorder bonuses for this game, I feel the Best Buy one is the best as the others were offer DLC codes. I said it before & I’ll say it again: physical items have more value than digital items.
Again, if you want to see some PS3 LE game unboxing posts here, don’t forget to vote in the ongoing poll.
