So whats in the box? Is it worth it? follow the jump and find out.
So theres a real chance that you've likely seen the contents of the Collectors Edition, but it is beautiful and well worth repeating.
The box itself is a beautiful white slip cover box with church like tapestry designs and moldings, with a nice three-talon slash right in the center of the front. A classic "Mature" rating is on the front as well ruining its beauty for all.
Now lets say that you actually want to open the box and play...ok. So you give a pull on the top of the box to reveal the inner box...
And are greeted with the demonic sigil of a Diablo skull (well, maybe not. theres no hole in its head for a soul stone.
The contents of the box
So what is it? well, from top to bottom, the CE comes with the game (duh), a behind the scenes DVD on the making of the game, the games soundtrack, guest passes for your friends to kill stuff/get stuff with you, and a red box. Whats in that box?
Why, its a replica Diablo skull with matching Soulstone USB flash drive containing a copy of Diablo 2 and its expansion Lords of Darkness!
Jumping back to some of the other stuff in the box, lets take a quick look at the soundtrack and its innards.

|A tabbard inside the CD case that sorta explains what happened previously. sort of.|
An interesting fact, I think this is the first CD that I've owned in almost 6 years. The wonders and ironies of digital distribution.
Now, one thing that I did not show (because it wouldn't fit in the shot above) is that this comes with a fantastically huge book of art of the game. And not a little dinky book that is as long as a DVD case is tall like you'd find in the Mass Effect 3 CE. I mean, look
I haven't had a chance to go through it, so I'm just going to turn to a couple of random pages just to showcase it, and it looks like we have...the female wizard
So, in the end was the Collectors Edition worth it? Yeah, I think so. Is the game? No clue. Look to the near future for some reviews from at least two or three of us on our take on this hopefully bombastic game. If the beta even comes close to what this could be, then this will be epic.
