Yeah that would be really cool. Something along the lines of the Ghost Recon limited edition that came out, it had loads of extra bits in it, Including a making of CD and a Ghost Recon patch. But aslong as I get BiA im not really that bothered about a special edition, although it would rule.
It would be cool, they have a metal case with bullet holes and barbed wires around it. A soundtrack CD like CoD Special Edition, the making of it, the poster of the game, and maybe a M1 Garand reproduction of the bullet. That would be so sweet!
I once bought a special edition of Jedi Knight 2. It was the same price as the normal one and I thought I may as well for the sake of it. You know what? I can't fold the stupid metal case. I can't recycle the thing. Useless piece of ****.
I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade (well, okay, I am), but I never did get how companies can get away with useless packaging and $2 trinkets and hocking them off as "special editions". It amuses me more that people buy this junk to simply take up space in their rooms until they grow up and leave home (throwing out said junk), or in their sheds never to be seen again until their grandchildren dig it up one day while playing.
Anyway, I'll not buy a "Special Edition" of this game. Nor will I buy the "Collector's Edition". No, I'm waiting for the "Ultimate X-treme Mega Edition" that comes with a sterling silver bottle opener with 'Proud Honorary Member of the 101st' etched into the side.

special editions of games are unique and fans like them

I have to pretty much agree with LongJocks.In my opinion it is a waste of money...especially if there isn't anything significant.Tin case..baah waste of space. A year or so from now it won't matter what was with it or how it was packed...it will be collecting dust.
BUT on the other hand:
I can see myself wanting a "special edition" if it came with something REALLY cool....patches,t-shirt (not a cheapo-see-through one),food,lottery tickets,real ammunition,coupons to restaurants, chewing gum, airline tickets to Europe, soundtracks,etc...lol
