Default Shift 2 Limited Edition Announced

In recent EA "tradition" the upcoming release of SHIFT 2 Unleashed will be available as a "Limited Edition" to those who pre-order. Like other "Limited Edition" releases from Ea this includes a fairly standard package with a few token in-game bonus for day one buyers. So what do you get?
  • Early access to 3 cars:
    • Nissan Silvia spec.R Aero
    • Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV
    • Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

  • 40 new career events including:
    • Single-Type events with all racers in the same car
    • Old vs. New events with classic and modern versions of the same car
    • Manufacturer Showdowns with different car makes and models
No official release date has been set but it's scheduled for "Spring 2011". While most of these LE releases are nothing special for collectors, at least the price is the same as the standard edition release for those who sleep on the pre-order.... View this article on the HomePage.

Hopefully they package more than just digital content.

EA are up to their old tricks.

Just like Dragon Age, Need for speed, etc.

I fear they will never go back to the original Collector's Edition like the wooden box Dragon Age Collector's edition.

I agree. All EA Collector's Editions seem to be the same bland offerings. Nothing really special about them, and they're nothing more than a standard edition with DLC, so more of an early bird incentive rather than something for collector's. I really don't know why they bother. They're just cashing in on a trend.

And is it me, or are EA pushing out Need For Speed games more frequently these days? Two a year now is it? Just look what happened when Activision tried it with the Guitar Hero franchise - They ruined it! NFS is due to go the same way if EA aren't careful...
