Even after all these years, I still think it's absolutely wild that these companies decide a cardboard box, three tiny plastic badges and four postcards are worth an extra £45.
I mean...I don't blame them for doing it (and it's none of my business what other people choose to buy), because they know people are willing to pay. But the whole thing just seems like such a con to me. 😅
I don't think anyone actually pays the MSRP though.
For example, as a preorder including discounts, in the US, Attack on Titan Final Season Part 2 regular BD is ~$42 (£33.90) after tax and the LE is $44 (£35.52) after tax.
This is the same for Arifureta Season 2 BD and LE.
You see far more aggressive discounts on the LE, which is why I'm preordering both LEs.
Generally, the gap between the LE and the regular edition is about $20 (£16) though at certain points in time, like right now during the preorder phase, that difference is smaller.
For the UK, it looks like the LE promotional pricing hasn't kicked in yet, which I imagine it eventually will to make the LE more worthwhile.
