Christian Hancock tipped us off to a very nicely done unboxing video for the upcoming Uncharted 3 Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition. Not only is this a professionally filmed video put up by SCEA but it stars Nolan North (the voice actor who plays Nathan Drake). Even if you’re not an uncharted fan it’s worth watching just for Mr North’s wise cracks about the CE’s design features…

Also if you pre-order the game from certain store you can get a Chimera tooth necklace.
Resistance 3 will be released on 6th September in the USA, 9th in the UK and the 7th for the rest of the world.
Recently Amazon.com let leak information regarding an upcoming “Hero Edition” of inFAMOUS 2. The listing has since been pulled but the $99 edition was slated for a May 24th release and included the following content:
Sony has finally officially announced the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition, and released the first picture of the upcoming replica Mask. This is shaping up to be a really nice looking edition, albeit expensive at $130
After yesterdays discovery that the official Killzone website let slip news of upcoming Collector’s and Limited Editions Roger Moe sent us a tip with some insider details…
The two editions are as follows
Killzone 3 Collector’s Edition:
“Blood and Thunder” DLC map pack
Killzone 3 Helghast Edition:
Authentic Replica of Helghast Helmet/mask and Stand
Exclusive DC Unlimited Helghast Figurine
Killzone Collectors Edition Steelbook with PSN voucher that offers:
“Blood and Thunder” DLC Map Pack
Dynamic PS3 Theme
Killzone 3 Soundtrack
All pre-order items (TBC)
Infamous 2 Demo (TBC)
The Helghast Edition seems like the one to get, though the SteelBook packaging for the Collector’s Edition is sure to please some. No idea what these will actually look like or how much they’ll cost. As always we’ll post more details if we get them.
Rumors have been floating around the internet about an even better CE release of Gran Turismo 5 than the one previously announced by Sony. These originated from an interview on Indian Video Gamer where Atindriya Bose (country manager for Sony Computer Entertainment India) stated:
For GT5, there are two collector’s editions. One is the game plus some added content and collectibles, which (has already been announced), while the other is in a really big package with a lot of paraphernalia that goes beyond the game. It’s all car-related, but I’m unaware of the exact contents. That being so expensive, we may not directly order it from Europe, but we could bring in limited quantities from Sony in the Middle East. We’ll also be working with Mercedes in some way around the GT5 launch, but we’re yet to decide the specifics of that.
To lend credence to this news Amazon’s French site recently put up a listing for an “Ultimate Edition” of the game in addition to the Collector’s Edition that was previously announced. Sadly aside from a name and release date it is devoid of details.
Shortly after the official release date was announced at E3 Gran-Turismo.com posted details of a forth coming Collector’s Edition for Gran Turismo 5.
Scheduled for release on November 2nd (of this year) at a price of $99 the Collector’s Edition will include the following:
a Die-Cast 1:43 scale 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a Gran Turismo livery produced by Kyosho
a Custom etched Gran Turismo key chain
a 300+ page book covering everything from car history, to driving technique, to tuning tips.
a voucher for five (5) exclusive high-end cars with custom Gran Turismo livery and performance upgrades
Numbered certificate of authenticity
Custom collector’s packaging
Those who pre-order will also get bonus cars including a “Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R GT500, McLaren F1, and more.”
This looks to be releasing in both North America and Europe, most likely the rest of the world as well. They state that “production will be limited” but there’s nothing that really states HOW limited that is.
The included diecast car is an exclusive 1:43 scale 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho,
