Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector’s Edition Details Leaked

January 9th, 2012 Michael Pica

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.

Aliens Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Xbox 360

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.

Rumor: Two Killzone 3 CEs Coming?

October 20th, 2010 Michael Pica

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.

Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition Announced

October 14th, 2010 Michael Pica

A few days ago Amazon.com let slip a listing for Collector’s Edition of Dead Space 2. Someone on N4G downloaded the product image before Amazon pulled the listing. Thankfully this is one “rumor” that has been confirmed, as EA has recently announced the Collector’s Edition, at least they have for Europe.

The CE announced for Europe looks identical to the one pulled from the US Amazon store so it’s safe to assume they carry the same stuff. But while the CE will be available for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 the content in the PS3 version is different.

All 3 versions will get the following:

  • Exclusive DLC code for in-game Unitology Suit and Force Gun
  • Dead Space 2 Original Soundtrack on CD with an hour of music compiled from the game’s score.
  • Concept art lithograph depicting Necromorph transformation by Visceral Games artist Brett Marting.

However The Xbox 360 and PC versions will also be getting this:

  • Replica of Isaac’s Plasma Cutter, modeled from the new design from Dead Space 2.

To make up for the lack of replica plasma cutter the PS3 version will be receiving

  • the same HD and move enabled re-release of Dead Space Extraction as the PS3 Limited Edition
  • a DLC code for an in-game Rivit Gun

Personally I’d rather have the replica plasma cutter but the PS3 people will be getting 2 games for the price of one.

Modern Warfare 2 to get Collector’s Edition

May 11th, 2009 Michael Pica

Mysteriously vague listings have popped up for a Collector’s Edition release of the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Gamestop.com lists the CE version for Xbox 360, Playstation3, and PC while Amazon currently has a listing for just the Xbox 360. These all have a release date of November 10th this year and a price tag of about $80.

Here’s hoping this time around the CE packaging of a COD game will live up to the stardard of quality as the game itself, I’m not holding my breath though.
