I preordered the collectors edition. Simply because, the only other CE i recall was FFXII, which was steel case.
This is by far the best collectors edition offered in the states for a FF. (though europe has a crystal one)
I've boughten some soundtracks (8,9,13). So it's actually worth it as the soundtrack's 35$ (I like the music I've heard). And it comes in a neat bundle, with an artbook, and digipack, the case is prettier, and more sensical since lightning isn't on the cover.
I don't like trophies or achievements I don't like them dinging I'm getting PS3. I'm excited, I liked 13 a lot. And I love monster catching (DQV had it :)). Plus it comes out on my birthday!
