Futureshop in Canada seems to be getting lots and lots of exclusive SteelBooks recently. The latest of which is a SteelBook that is included along side pre-orders of Zelda Skyward Sword for the Wii.
This is a G1 sized case and apparently it will ONLY be included with pre-orders placed between October 26th and November 20th. Also it seems that it’s only included with the standard edition of the game not the Limited Edition bundle with the Gold Wii Remote.
Sadly Futureshop does not ship outside of Canada, which is a shame as this would make an excellent addition to any Zelda fan’s collection.

Many of you wrote it to tell us about a wired article showing off leaked advertisement info for the upcoming Hardened Edition of Modern Warefare 3.
The photo shows the BBFC rating logo meaning this is likely information on the UK release (although if past COD CEs are any indication all versions internationally are the same). While not specifically mentioned it seems that again, like past COD releases, it will include a SteelBook case for the game disc itself.
Explicitly mentioned is the following content:
- 1 year of Call of Duty: “Elite” Membership
- Special “Founder” status, which profiles you with exclusive:
- in-game emblem
- player card
- weapon camouflage
- clan xp boost
- other benefits
- PSN animated timeline theme
- Xbox Avatar Special Ops Juggernaut Outfit.
- A Field journal with 100+ pages of authentic military sketches, diagrams and written entries chronicling the Modern Warfare saga.
What seems most peculiar to me is that Activision has waited so long to mention details on this release and the inevitable Prestige Edition, even after this leak they refused to comment. Most likely they are simply waiting for the Call of Duty Convention occurring this weekend. We’ll post up details once they’re available.

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.
