'WoW' 'Burning Crusade' collector's edition revealed

For all you "World of Warcraft" junkies out there, get ready to drool.

Blizzard Entertainment, the publisher of "WoW," announced Wednesday the contents of the collector's edition of its forthcoming "World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade" expansion pack.

Contained in the spiffy box--Blizzard released a similar collector's edition box with the original version of "WoW" in late 2004 that these days fetches in excess of $300 on eBay--the collector's edition will include the game on CD and DVD, a behind-the-scenes DVD, a copy of "The art of 'World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade'" art book, an exclusive in-game pet, two "WoW" trading card starter packs and some cards, a mousepad and a soundtrack CD.

The company hasn't released pricing for the box set yet, but expect it to be significantly higher than the normal version of the game.

According to the blog, WoW Insider, the behind-the-scenes DVD will give viewers a look at Blizzard's fanfest, BlizzCon, as well as developer interviews, trailers, "WoW" cinematics, commentary and more.

From this corner, it looks like an investment opportunity. Stock up as soon as you can.
