Rumored way back in January it wasn’t until yesterday that Gearbox officially announced a Collector’s Edition for their upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Included is the following:
Scheduled for release internationally on February 12th 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. US pricing is $99, no official pricing has been announced for the rest of the world.
Thanks to thesirren for the original tip.
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…
Forum member Mike1888 noticed earlier today that FutureShop (the Canadian electronics store) is offering a SteelBook Edition of the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Much like their recent Mortal Kombat SteelBook exclusive this is essentially a generic Duke Nukem Forevever themed SteelBook that is bundled alongside the standard edition of the game and provided free with a pre-order of the standard edition of the game on any platform at the regular $59.99 price. While not a “real” CE release SteelBooks have shown to hold their value among collectors so this is something collectors should strongly consider adding to their collection.
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:
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.
The Borderlands Game of the Year Edition is released today, Included is the game along with all of the DLC packs at a cost of about what you’d spend on just the DLC Packs alone (it’s a good game worth picking up if you haven’t already).
If you haven’t already heard though, recently added to the features included with this edition is the inclusion of the first ever playable demo of the long awaited Duke Nukem Forever.
Gearbox (Borderland’s developer) took over development of DNF from the original developer 3DRealms. A playable demo was first unveiled at the recent Penny Arcade Expo and now the Demo will be made available to those who buy the Game of the Year Edition of Borderlands.
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.
