The Limited Edition of Gears of war 2 has a multi-layered case consisting of an artbox which contains a 2 disc SteelBook case along with a hard cover art book, all wrapped with a cardboard sleeve. Also Included is a bonus DVD with behind the scenes contents and Xbox live marketplace codes allowing you to download a map pack of classic levels along with a gold-plated Lancer Assault Rifle for use during online play.

*when you first open the artbook the picture of Dom and his wife falls out like a loose photo from a scrap book. It’s even got a little message on the back, a really nice touch.

    interestingly, the pal version did not have the “do not sell before..” part on it.

    A lot of major US releases get that sticker on them both regular and special editions.

    most games actually ship from the warehouse on release day but big titles like Gears, Halo, etc.. where they expect people to be lined up to buy it at midnight, they'll actually ship it to stores as much as a week early, and then they put those huge stickers on it to keep the dumb clerks from accidentally selling it before the release date.
