Default Duke Nukem Forever to get Balls of Steel Edition

CE.o member Anjelaoni posted up info about a rumored "Balls of Steel" Edition of the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever. First rumored on a French Duken Nukem forum it seems that a German retailer is already taking pre-orders for the edition on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.


The edition is rumored to be limited to only 2,000 units and include the following:
  • 12.7 cm high bust of the legendary Duke
  • Certificate of Authenticity
  • 100 pages Hardcover Art Book: The History and Art of Duke Nukem
  • 5 Duke Nukem Postcards
  • Duke Nukem Forever Logo Sticker
  • Duke Nukem Forever Limited Collector's Comic
  • Duke Nukem Forever Foldable papercraft (Duke with pig's head)
  • Dukem Nukem Forever Poker Chips
  • Duke Nukem Forever Mini Poker Cards
  • Duke Nukem Forever dice
Slated for May 3rd no price has been confirmed nor any info as to whether this edition will be available outside of Europe. We will post more details when they become available.

UPDATE: This edition is no longer rumored and has been confirmed by 2K Games.

UPDATE #2: It has been confirmed that this edition will be available through GameStop and Amazon.com in the US at a price of $99.... View this article on the HomePage.

It looks like they are basing the 2000 quantity off the certificate in the sample image. Anyway, glad US is getting this release as well.

^probably not a very good metric.

also note that the "gamebox" doesn't denote a platform, the box has a PEGI rating and the disc has an ESRB rating

Something doesn't seem right, as ShopTo.net had this edition up on their site a good few days before HMV.

HMV have it for £64.99, and ShopTo at £64.85. GAME also have it, but their price is £74.99! I'm going to Tweet them and see if they will match the price
