-1 - Just because I feel that collector's edition are almost always rip-offs. – Mark Rogers Mar 8 '12 at 18:53
I'm normally the most outspoken advocate of judicious and widespread downvote use here, but @MarkRogers, that has to be the worst reason to downvote a contribution to this site that I've ever seen. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 8 '12 at 18:54
-1 Becuase it took longer to type the question into than it would have to type it in google – Tharius Mar 8 '12 at 18:58
@Stephen Now that is a good reason to downvote! And it isn't even one that I personally would have bothered to explain. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 8 '12 at 19:01

From the release notes on the Origin purchase page:

  • Four weapons: N7 Eagle, N7 Hurricane, N7 Crusader, N7 Valiant
  • A Robotic Dog: A faithful sidekick to keep you company on board the Normandy.
  • New outfits for Ashley, Kaidan, James Vega, and Liara T'Soni.
  • N7 Hoodie: Outfit item for Shepard while onboard the Normandy.
  • From Ashes: An additional downloadable mission and character.

The zero day DLC is $10 separately, so that's already halfway to the difference in cost between the standard and collector's editions! – Shinrai Mar 8 '12 at 19:17
@Shinrai That makes me feel much better about having pre-ordered the collector's edition instead of the standard edition when I really shouldn't be spending money at all! Now if only I'd splurged a little more for faster shipping I might be playing already... – Kromey Mar 8 '12 at 21:06
NB: The dog will not follow you around, it just wanders around the shuttle bay (though you can walk up to him sometimes and tell him he is a good dog). Also, I have been digging the Valiant sniper rifle on my infiltrator, so I'm glad I got the CE if only for that gun. Ridiculous, I know. – jordie3000 Apr 9 '12 at 20:47
