Collectability or Collectibility
Ok, in putting together the 4e Teaser document, I came across this word several times.
Neither version exists in dictionary.com.
Either is arguably correct.
Which do you prefer?

To further complicate matters, "collectable/collectible" are both correct according to Dictionary.com.
This one could go either way, folks!!!!

If you do a google search on both Collectibility gets 2,340,000 while Collectability only gets 593,000.

I'd look at other words with the same ending:
Operability, manageability, etc.

Collectability. In this 'ere neck o' the woods, at any rate.
And - oh cool! Did I save the world?!
Also - nice job on the teaser.

The former. As Robberbaron said, other words of the same type use an "a" rather than an "i".

Never seen "collectable" before in my life. Collectibility it is, for me.
