Nothing official yet, but a Swiss shop (Wog.ch) just listed a Collector’s Edition for the upcoming and much-anticipated game Watch Dogs from Ubisoft. According to their listing the Collector’s Edition of Watch Dogs includes the following:
- Silver-, Gold- & Platinum-DLC
- Aiden Figurine
- Original Soundtrack
- Interactive Map of Chicago
- 3 Faction Badges
- 4 Augmented Reality Cards
The game will be released in November 2013 and prices start at 129 CHF (~ €105 EUR/$137 USD) for the PC Version and goes up to 149 CHF (~ €121 EUR/$158 USD) for consoles. So far the website only listed it for current consoles even though it’s already confirmed to be on next gen.
There has as yet been no confirmation from Ubisoft and there are also no pictures released from what exactly we can expect. As soon as we know more we will let you know!
Thanks to our ce.o member Mathika for the heads up!

While North America is getting the Dead Island Riptide Rigor Mortis Edition, it’s rumored that Europe will get a so-called Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition.
The Edition is still yet to be confirmed from Deep Silver. But the price is supposed to be 120 Euro and the only known content so far is a female zombie bikini torso statue.
The Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition is now confirmed and available for pre-order at Gamesonly.at for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360
Limited to 8000 units the collector’s Edition comes in a fancy box with the following:
- 2x DLC with alternate Character Skin & Pack of Weapon MODs
- bloody, hand-painted zombie bikini torso made from synthetic resin (weight 2.5 kg (~ 5.5 lbs), height 33 cm (~12.99 inch))
The Edition is exclusively sold through Gamesonly.at for Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
Q & A with Gamesonly.at
Q: Are game & steelbook included in the box or are they separate?
A: Game & Steelbook will be in the box together with the torso statue.
Q: Does the box come sealed in any way?
A: The box will not come sealed.
Q: Is this Edition really available for all 3 platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)?
A: We guarantee a 100% delivery for all 3 platforms. However the box itself will not have any platform branding.
Q: In other European countries the bikini of the torso comes with the British flag, is yours really wearing the US flag?
A: It is still unknown which flag can be seen on our bikini but we keep you up to date through our Newsletter.
Dead Island is scheduled for release on 26th April
Thanks to Mathika for the heads up!

I went to pickup my Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition yesterday and to my surprise GameStop was giving away sealed G1 sized SteelBook cases with pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III on 360, PS3, and PC. The deal doesn’t seem to be specific to GameStop as Amazon.com is also offering SteelBooks as a pre-order bonus. The Clerk also seemed to think that there was going to be a First Edition upgrade announced soon, similar to the Signature Edition for AC Revelations.

Thank you to everyone who wrote in to tell us about the leaked Collector’s Edition of Aliens: Colonial Marines. French Gaming site Gamekyo broke the announcement.
The graphic above clearly shows that the CE will come in a nice looking display box along with a statue of the iconic power loader along with some in-game content. It’s unclear which region the CE is slated for,
though considering the game has already been released in North America (correction: it was scheduled for release in November but pushed back) and the leak occurred in France I would venture a guess that this will be at very least a UK release, possibly all of Europe. I would suspect we will get more details including pricing once it gets closer to the ambiguous “Spring 2012″ release date.

Apparently GearBox is planning to offer a Collector’s Edition for their upcoming game Borderlands 2 (due out sometime in 2012). Not only are they planning to offer a CE they’ve asked the community to help them decide what to include!
You can send them your ideas on the official GearBox forum.
Me personally I told them I don’t care what they include for bonuses as long as the packaging is high quality. I figure I spend more time looking at it sitting on the shelf than anything else, so it might as well be worth looking at.
… although an RC claptrap would be pretty cool…

Tweeted by French site Gameinmotion, are supporting pictures of what may exist in the near future as a compilation for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy.
Based on the title of the package and interior of the steelbook case, it will most likely be packaged with the 3 Modern Warfare games in the series. As this is not (yet) announced officially by Activision, it can be treated as a rumor with a good possibility of coming true.
Obviously there are no official details released for this and it can only be assumed that these will be released for the console (Xbox360 & PS3) and PC platforms. And there’s a good chance this will be a worldwide release also.
But for now, just drool all over these glorious pictures:
Shiny Steelbook with embossed ‘Call of Duty’ title
Pictures indicate this will house Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2 & Modern Warfare 3 games
2011 prints can be found inside the cover*
*[Note: Although a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Collection is already in existence, that particular package contains two CoD: MW games in two separate standard game cases released in 2010. This '2011' edition will be packaged in one steelbook case instead.]
All credits go to Matrix6 for writing and pointing out!
mackalaway, who works for Micromania in France, provided some additional deatils. This is an official SteelBook case and it will be sold as just a stand-alone case by Micromania at a price of 9.99 €.

If you haven’t noticed the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition of Super Mario All-Stars sold-out almost as soon as it hit store shelves. The edition that originally fetched $30 new is currently going for around $80 on the 2nd hand market. If you’re a collector and you didn’t pick one up, well it seems you made a mistake.
There is some hope though Wired.com is reporting that due to the overwhelming demand that Nintendo is considering a reprint of sorts. No word on whether they’re simply going to print more of the 25th Anniversary Edition or produce a different release altogether.
Nintendo public relations director Marc Franklin told Wired.com via email on Friday: “We are gratified by the consumer response to this limited-edition product, which we created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game on NES, because of the strong response, we are exploring the option of bringing this item back at a later date. … Until that decision is made, consumers should check with retailers, as supplies will vary by store.”

Onisha sent us a tip that the official Killzone 3 website briefly had more than one edition listed for Killzone 3.
The images and descriptive text for all 3 versions of the game were identical, most likely placeholders. They’ve since disappeared however the “SELECT YOUR EDITION” title image still remains on the pre-order page. Killzone 3 is Scheduled for release on February 22nd, 2011.

Gamestop recently posted up a listing for a Borderlands Game of the Year Edition Strategy Guide with a release date of September 9th. Soon after CVG posted up this information the link was removed. Kotaku contacted Gearbox for more information and simply received a “no comment” response.
The listing for the guide supposedly made mention of including strategy for the 3 DLC packs so its most likely that any Game of the Year Edition release will simply pack in all the additional content with the original game.
