As many of you let us know, two CEs have been announced for the upcoming release of Activision’s Call of Duty Black Ops II. slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 13th, its very likely that both of these editions will be available in large quantities world wide.
The Hardened Edition will retail for about $80 (USD) and feature a fancy box along with a SteelBook (G1 for 360 and G2 for PS3), a Soundtrack, some “Challenge Coins” and some bonus content: “Nuketown Zomebies” and “Nuketown 2025″ among some additional in-game weapons and other bonuses.
The PS3 release will also include some dashboard themes, while the 360 release will include some Avatar items.
The Care Package edition will retail for about $180 (USD) and includes everything from the Hardened Edition except it looks to come in a massive crate to house all the content along with a remote controlled quad-copter based on the “MD-27 Dragonfire Drone”. Pushing the gadget envelope even further than past releases.

Thanks to all the people who let us know about this recent announcement.
THQ has released details about both a Limited Edition and Collector’s Editions coming for Darksiders II. The Limited Edition is a first-edition type release (meaning all pre-orders are automatically upgraded) it’s essentially the Standard Edition with a DLC code for the Arguls’ Tomb pack. The Limited Edition seems to be available on all platforms world wide.
The collector’s Edition includes the limited edition along with a life-sized Death Mask, hard-cover artbook and DLC codes for the official soundtrack and the Shadow of Death Pack.
So far the Collector’s Edition only seems to be available for Xbox 360 and PS3, and (at the moment) only sold through GameStop in North America at a price of $99.
Darksiders II is slated for release on June 26th in North America and June 29th in Europe.

Yesterday I received word from Ghostlight that they’re offering a extremely limited version of the Agarest: Generations of War Zero Collector’s Edition.
After some interest was shown both on Twitter and in the comments section of the Blog in purchasing one of these, we’ve been looking into ways of turning this into a very special, very exclusive collector’s item for fans of this great game. After some careful thought we believe we now have something we can offer you.
We will be making a very limited run of 15 of these superb Ultimate Collector’s Editions available, priced at £499 (not including shipping or insurance). The frames themselves will be handmade and the package will then be personally signed and authenticated by Mr. Hirano (Art lead) and Mr. Sugano (Producer/Director) from Idea Factory. All of Ghostlight’s profits from the sales of the Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be going to the Japan Tsunami Appeal. So, not only will you be getting a wonderful collector’s item, but you’ll be supporting a fantastic cause as well.
We will be offering shipping throughout the PAL region on these items.
Details of how to order have yet to be announced and despite the heavy price tag profits are going towards support for the Japan Tsumani Appeal, so it’s for a good cause. We’ll post more information when we know more.
