Ninja Gaiden 3 Collector’s Edition unmasked

January 14th, 2012 Michael Pica

Lots of you wrote in to tell us about the recently revealed Collector’s Edition of the Upcoming Ninja Gaiden 3.

Ninja Gaiden 3 Collector's Edition (Xbox 360/PS3) [NTSC/PAL]

This Edition looks to come in a nice box and includes all of the content you’d expect from a higher end CE. A CD soundtrack an artbook and a pair of figurines. Fans of Dead or Alive will also be happy to see the inclusion of a voucher for a special version of the Dead or Alive 5 demo which includes 4 playable fighters (as opposed other versions of the demo which only include 2 fighters).

Scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 March 20th in North America and March 23rd in Europe. No official pricing has been announced and it doesn’t seem to be available for pre-order anywhere yet but it’s rumored to be priced around $100 USD.

The Darkness II Limited Edition Preorder Upgrade

October 6th, 2011 Anjelaoni

2K Games have announced that The Darkness II will come in a Limited Edition. The Limited Edition is a free (and automatic) upgrade for anyone who pre-orders The Darkness II.

The Darkness II Limited Edition includes:

  • Custom artwork illustrated by Marc Silvestri
  • Free digital download of The Darkness Origins Volume 1 and 2 comics

Exclusive In-Game Items:

  • Alternate darkling outfit – “Crazy Abdul”
  • Two character ability upgrades:
    • Gourmet Hearts: provides bonus for eating hearts
    • Relic Hunter: locates collectible items in the world

I’m not sure if there is a special Steelbook or anything like that. It sounds as if there is only some digital Content for the Limited Edition.


Help Design the CE for Borderlands 2

September 8th, 2011 Michael Pica

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…

Duke Nukem Forever SteelBook Edition Availble for Pre-Order

May 23rd, 2011 Michael Pica

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.

Canada exclusive Duke Nukem Forever SteelBook (PC) (PS3) (Xbox 360) [NTSC] (Futureshop) (2K Games)

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.

May 2nd, 2011 Michael Pica

While this CE may be titled “Love is Over” Atlus is certainly showing the love for North American collectors. Available only through preorder on Atlus’ upcoming sexy adventure-puzzle game includes quite an interesting array of interesting pack-ins.

Available for Xbox 360 or PS3 the CE will be packed in a Pizza Box and include a T-Shirt, Boxer Shorts, and a Pillowcase in addition to the base game. Also included as a Pre-Order Bonus is a Soundtrack CD and artbook.

The Love is Over Deluxe Edition is due out on July 26th at a price of about $80.

It should also be noted that the standard edition of this game will be offered with two different covers. the original artwork (which presumably will be included with the CE release) as well as a more tame/less revealing version of the cover for those retailers that are more squeamish. It seems that and some others are offering both versions of the cover for those interested in collecting both versions.
