With E3 2016 (check out Geek Culture’s extensive coverage) happening right now, gamers are going gaga over which games to pre-order. And since we all have limitations with our wallets, we have to choose wisely when it comes to those enticing Collector’s Editions that come with some of our favourite games.

Here are our top 10 hottest Collector’s Edition game titles that you won’t want to miss, including tips on how to get them at the best deal during the pre-order phase. You’d have to choose wisely and act fast before the rules change, or when stocks run out!

Luckily, some games, such as the upcoming God of War, have not been given a proper release window, so there are no pre-orders for what will definitely launch with a HUGE Collector’s Edition.

Here are 3 important ProTips before you make your orders:

ProTip #1

Singapore gamers (and we suspect, to many others across South-East Asia), please consolidate your orders. When you order via Amazon right now, you can enjoy the AmazonGlobal Standard Shipping rate of just US$4.99! And knowing just how huge the packages of Collector’s Editions can get, this makes the deal extra juicy. You have to choose wisely though, as you can only order up to 3 sets of each edition, but no matter how many you orders you place at one go, the shipping rate still hangs at $4.99. The great thing about Amazon is that the company honours the shipping prices (and retail price) at the point of purchase, so even if shipping goes up at a later date, you will still pay just US$4.99 per order.

ProTip #2

Here’s another important one. If you live in Singapore, be sure to split up your orders to keep the total well below S$400 (US$295), so you don’t end up having to foot an extra 7% GST when the items arrive. One way is to group an order that has games on different release dates, and not lump them together. Amazon will split up your shipments accordingly when they are released, and send the first game being released first. You still only pay one shipment fee for the combined order that might exceed S$400, but the game that arrives separately will be priced at less than that. If you want to split orders to hit below the S$400 mark, make sure that you use different addresses as well. Two separate orders of under S$400 each, but sent to the same address at the same time, can be tied together. To be safe, why not ship one order to your office/In-Laws/neighbour.

ProTip #3

Would you like an additional 20% off  each of the Collector’s Editions? If you are an Amazon Prime member, you already know you’ll be getting 20% off the pre-order price! If not, then now might be the best time to sign up for the FREE 30-day trial, and enjoy 20% off your pre-orders instantly.
