Publishers have been putting together “Collector’s Editions” of games for many years now. The contents vary depending on the franchise, but tend to include some sort of physical statue or other collectibles, an art book, and cosmetic in-game items. One thing that’s almost always included is the game itself. But apparently Amazon missed the memo on that.
Amazon has teamed up with EA to put together an exclusive Collector’s Edition of Battlefield 1, which curiously does not actually come with the game. Customers aren’t likely to be unaware that they won’t be getting the game, as it’s spelled out in the title of the product, which is “Battlefield 1 Exclusive Collector’s Edition – Does Not Include Game.”
