EA releases new photos of Crysis 2 Nano Edition.

February 2nd, 2011 Michael Pica

Brenden sent in a tip this morning that EA had some now photos up showing what looks to be a more finalized version of the upcoming Nano Edition of Crysis 2.

The Crysis 2 Nano Edition is designed for the ultimate Crysis fan and will include the Limited Edition housed in a steel case plus an 11” / 28 cm statue of the game’s hero “Prophet” on top of a New York taxi cab, a high-quality art book, all packaged inside a backpack modeled after the Nanosuit itself.

While it looks quite a bit different this is shaping up to be quite a nice CE. I’m particularly happy to see that the NE contains the LE with the adding of a SteelBook as well.

Modern Warfar 2 Veteran Edition for the US?

November 17th, 2009 Michael Pica

I recently received a link from Scott Williams showing that Barns & Nobel has a listing for a “Veteran Statue Bundle” of Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Veteran Edition Statue (Xbox 360) [NTSC]

Previously it was thought that the “Veteran Edition” of Modern Warfare 2 was exclusive to the UK. It’s unclear if this listing is for a North American version of that edition or if they’re simply selling the Game and the Limited Edition Statue as a package deal.

B&N lists the bundle for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.

Most interestingly is that it lists the seller as  “GameStop” implying that they are selling through the Barns & Noble website, yet there is no mention of this bundle on GameStop’s own website.

If anyone has any addition info on this release please leave a comment.

Modern Warfare 2 Veteran Edition

September 24th, 2009 Michael Pica

I got an email recently with the following:

I work on Modern Warfare 2, and am also a personal fan of the site (as I’m a CE heavy user).  Not sure if you saw but we added a 4TH flavor of Modern Warfare 2…the Veteran statue.  Tons of work went into this bad boy and we worked with the top collectible manufacturer in the industry, Kotobukiya,
to make it.  Sold as a bundle in the UK, or standlone statue here:
