Do we know that the Game Gears version doesn't include the DLC which comes with the Special Edition? Or are these details just not available at the moment?

They recently Tweeted that anyone pre-ordering the Special Edition will get a free upgrade to the SteelBook, so I assume this edition contains everything the Special Edition does...


EDIT:
This info is also displayed on their site listings:

I suspect they will most likely send the SteelBook out alongside the Special Edition of the game as a bonus, rather than the game being sent inside the SteelBook

That's my fear too.

Information as it stands is limited to just Steelbook and voucher. including details about a voucher leads me to believe the information is up to date and accurate. We have to take the information it as it comes.

So those who have ordered the Special Edition and have had their order upgraded to the SteelBook will in fact be missing out on the DLC from the Special Edition. If they wanted that DLC, then they're going to be disappointed if their order has been automatically upgraded...

Well the RRP for the standard Special Edition is only £39.99, so £32.99 / £33.75 is a bargain in comparison! Although, in contrast, it has been stated that the SteelBook version will not contain all of the DLC from the Special Edition

£22 for the PC version is even better. I've always wondered why Consoles versions are more expensive, something to do with licensing I think. Anyone enlighten me to the true reason?

That is correct, licences are the biggest contributing factors with regards to the inflated prices.

However there is also the fact that the PC user wouldn't except a higher price and the console buyers would. Modern Warfare is a prime example of that.

Thanks for the quick response. I think the most expensive PC games Standard editions I've seen where some of the Call of duty and Starcraft 2.
