    resistance 3 survivor edition is looking might fine just hope the price is ok.
    i havent found anywhere to pre-order the survivor edition yet but the standard edition is up for pre-order.

  2. Gemini-Phoenix:
    I'm thinking bags and backpacks are the "in" thing for 2011, what with the Crysis 2 Nano Edition, InFamous 2 Hero Edition, and now this. If you add GTA IV, the North American CE for Resident Evil 5 and Mirror's Edge CE's, that's a pretty substantial collection of bags we're amassing in our collections!

  4. mosavon:

  5. RaverX:
    That "Vinyl effect Blu-ray disc looks really cool. But that's all (except for the steelbook). What else do I get in the special edition ? A lot of digital codes. More than that...

    This is very bad. A special edition is worth nothing without something "hard" inside. A CD with a soundtack. A DVD with "making of". An artbook. A bagde or a necklace... Any of those are worth for me more than a million of digital codes...

    The "Survivor Edition" looks much better, there's a lot of goodies inside, but I think the price will be too high. If they will make a lot of units and the price will drop to 50 pounds (like the KZ3 Helghast Edition) I will buy one.

    If not it really depends on how much will cost the special edition. I like the special looking bluray and the steelcase, but I won't pay more than 10 pounds (extra) for that.

    I´m going to annoy my local seller until they have the preorder for the survivor edition! They know me and I think they will surrender and offer it to me very soon.

    I don't think it's a case of they made too many of the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition. I think it was overpriced and bulky to store, and they wanted to clear the storage space for other items, therefore had to lower the price to shift them. One Killzone 3 Helghast Edition could probably make way for a good 50 standard edition games. It was just inconvenient to keep hanging around for HMV

  8. Gemini-Phoenix:
    Anyone going to take a guess which UK retailer will get the exclusive for this? PLAY.com got the InFamous 2 Hero Edition, so they may also go for this. HMV are apparently on the brink of administration so I hear, so they may not want to stock yet another large CE again. GAME might, but they too may not have the storage capacity, and hav learnt in the past that they get stuck with these things and have to offer them at a loss

    I'm actually guessing the total volume of this CE might actually be as small as the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: Codex Edition or GTA IV CE. There's nothing really large included - The satchel can be folded up, and everything else is quite small and can be stashed neatly

  9. foreverflash:
    Why has no one asked about the availability of either the Survivor or Limited Editions in North America? Why is this PAL exclusive? It is not fair. I could say so much more but there's no point...this is happening more and more. No amount of bitching or moaning will change the decisions publishers make regarding availability of limited or collectible edition games.



  10. gurpswoo1:
    The fact is, the Sony division in each region act independently on certain decisions. They have to judge how the edition will be received and if it's suitable.

    Take for example, Little Big planet Collector's Edition, we got a steel book while the USA/CA got the book ends editions. The same goes for Mortal Kombat, You got the superior edition.

    Why they though they would not be suitable for PAL regions is unknown, perhaps we don't read that many books. LOL.

    But I agree, why region restrict some editions but not others.

  11. DISSESHOWEDO:
    I think there is a mistake, in the Special edition the Chimera tooth necklace is not a DLC it's a real necklace that you can wear.PS3 Eu Blog check.

  12. gurpswoo1:
    oops - Sorry though they were all DLC codes. Thanks for clearing that up. Have amended the post.

  13. Beaniator:
    i see game4game now have the survival edition up for 149 euro .
    out of my price range sorry to say. sorry if already posted

  14. matze1975:
    But game4game also says that the price could change, cause they don´t have a final price yet!

  15. Beaniator:
    a ha didnt see that , will watch a little more closely now and hope it drops in price.chrs

  16. Gemini-Phoenix:
    All UK retailers have the standard edition up for pre-order, with most of them displaying the updated cover, but none of them have either of these editions available so far...

  17. mosavon:
    its sure to retail here (UK) at £45 for the special and £99 for the survivor,...needless to say im getting it when it drops to around half price which it will

  18. mosavon:
    Special edition available here

    I Understand. I'm just so frustrated as a collector to see (in my opinion) the "best" games always getting the PAL (european or Australian) exclusive editions. I really could care less about Mortal Kombat compared to Resistance. I mean c'mon, resistance is way bigger and considering that the US market is still very strong for such specialty items there is NO logical reason to not provide it here. Almost ALL collector and special editions sell out (and very quickly) in the states, but many times I find an over-abundance of special or collector edition games in PAL regions. Go figure...
