a.k.a. the Pokémon approach.

Buska's right though, special editions are quite bad actually. I think the Twilight Princess one with Wolf Link amiibo's the only one I've seen anything worthwhile from, and even then in hindsight that figure was a curiosity rather than anything else. I never used it in either TPHD (which, er, I never played Shifty ) or BotW. In short: tat, tat and more tat.

I love the tat myself but the wife is not a fan so special editions are rare buys for me, I'd still be open to buying a really special one from time to time though so they need to up their game and stop doing rubbish ones that don't even have a physical copy of the game.

See I was thinking with Xbox possibly stopping physical games, the Series S making up most of X|S installbase (along with the possible X refresh being digital only) that they should do special editions still of a Halo that comes with 3 months Game Pass & a RC Warthog in the box.

Should do one with a PS5 in the box, innit?

Are you talking about, like, going into Game to get a code for a Keldeo or whatever?

Yep! At least I presume I am, I never actually did it.

I was just thinking make game boxes bigger and fancier as "standard physical release" boxes - like PC games in the old days!

*audio aside: my Dad (who had a large collection of immaculately-kept vinyl records from the late 60s/70s) said that people who said vinyl sounded better were talking nonsense; records were prone to damage, and once digital audio didn't have to compress things in a way that lost audio quality, it was much better in general.

There have been blind tests and even so-called experts regularly said they preferred MP3s to records.

THAT SAID there is a nice ritualistic feeling to a physical media, and a scratchy record or grainy film can add flavour.
