Unboxed: Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition

February 9th, 2013 Michael Pica

I’ve never played any of the Dead Space games, though I own all 3. Not that I don’t plan to play them (eventually) but one of the hazards of being a collector is that you buy far more games than you have time to play. What I do know about Dead Space is that the first game received what is perhaps the most iconic and and one of the most sought-after editions of this generation, the “Ultra Limited Edition“. Low production numbers tend to be the best trait any collector could ask for and with only 1000 made the Ultra Limited Edition could have been nothing more than a regular game case with alternative art and made collectors still crave it. Thankfully it was not only rare but a really well put-together package, not what I would consider to be the best edition, but it would still be one of the better editions even if it wasn’t so limited.

Due to the desirability of the Ultra Limited Edition the Collector’s Edition for Dead Space 2 was considered somewhat of a let-down. Over production make them not much more valuable than the standard edition and the included bonus item (a replica plasma cutter) was actually a scale model and not the full-sized replica people were hoping for. It seems for Dead Space 3 EA is hoping to rectify this with the Dev Team Edition, limited to 5000 units across all platforms and all bundled up in what is arguably one of the highest quality packages for an edition this generation, we’ll see if the Dev Team Edition can live up to the legacy that is the Ultra Limited Edition.

The Freedom Edition, includes Alex Ross’ SteelBook (similar in design to the North American pre-order bonus), “George Washington’s Notebook”, a statue of “Connor” and some DLC content all wrapped up in a good sized decorative box.

The Freedom Edition has an RRP of £80 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and an RRP of £60 for PC, the Join or Die Edition has an RRP of £65 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and an RRP of £50 for PC.
