Final Fantasy XIII-2 Collectors Edition

Hey there.  There are few games that I pay full price for.  There are even fewer franchises that I am willing to shell out extra for the limited edition or collectors edition.  Final Fantasy, however, is one franchise that I would definitely spend the money on a collectors edition. When I ventured into Gamestop a few weeks ago and saw that I could reserve my copy of Final Fantasy XIII-2, I just had to do it.  Recently, I learned that you can upgrade your reservation to the collectors edition!  I NEED THE COLLECTOR'S EDITION!!!

I'm sucker for extra stuff, but not those in game bonuses.  I could care less for those, actually.  But when it comes to behind the scenes stuff and concept artwork, I need to see it.  I've always loved to see how a character came to be or how the world was created.  It's awesome to see how the characters, the scenery, the details all came together to orchestrate an adventure.  I love to see how the illustrator molded a rough draft into the characters that we know and love.  The Final Fantasy XIII-2 Collector's Edition will come with a booklet that will have concept art.  It's also going to come with a 4 disc CD soundtrack.  We all know that FF has some of the most memorable music ever made for video games so I'm curious if the soundtrack will include previous titles or music exclusively from FFXIII-2.
I haven't upgraded yet, since I need to travel to the store where I reserved my copy to do it.  I plan on stopping by this weekend.  With each trailer that's released, the more anxious I become to get to playing it.  Are you excited?  Check out this trailer and let me know what you think.

SquareEnix has confirmed that the a playable demo will be released next week!  I can't wait!  What franchise series would you pay top dollar for?  What collector's items have you received before?  Let's hear it, friends.  Later!
