This brings on the issue of how much is too much? Same issue can be applied with Video Games in general. How many SKU's should be allowed throughout a console's life time, this does not include redesigns as they do not hinder any performances or have one advantage over the other.
Also, Limited/Collector's Edition are expanding in size and price. First it started with Halo 3 with it's Legendary edition but now that's been over taken by Gears of War 2 Collector's edition priced at $140. And I believe Mirror's Edge and Dead Space have some of their own priced at $130 and $150 respectively.
While more options and goodies are always a plus, don't you think it's getting out of hand?
