After months of speculation, Bethesda has confirmed that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting its own super collector's edition.
This premium edition of the game is not cheap, however. Get ready to shell out $150 (US) €149.99 (EU), or £129.99 (UK), depending on where you live.
So are the contents worth the price? We'll let you be the judge. Included in the Collector's Edition:
