Destructoid recently posted up an unboxing video of the upcoming Fable III Limited Collector’s Edition, along with some photos of the contents.

So far it looks much better than the Fable II LCE. Also, is it just me, or are playing cards the new favorite pack-in for Collector’s Editions these days? Both Fallout New Vegas and Dead Rising 2 included decks as well.

    Alan Wake LCE Unboxing

    May 19th, 2010 Michael Pica

    I picked up the Alan Wake Limited Collector’s Edition last night and I must say I’m very impressed with it. A game that was first announced around the Xbox 360’s launch it’s been a long time coming, and they definitely delivered on making this what I would consider to be the best CE release so far this year, and definitely one of the most unique CE’s this generation.

    Forza Motorsport 3 Limited Collector’s Edition Details Unveiled

    June 19th, 2009 Michael Pica

    Kotaku is reporting on recently released details about the upcoming Limited Collector’s Edition of Forza Motorsport 3:

    Forza 3 will cost you $60. But the Forza 3 Limited Edition will cost you $80. What’s jacking the price up by $20 get you? It doesn’t look like it gets you much at all.

    Those parting with the extra cash will receive:

    • a 2GB USB drive and a keychain, both “specially branded” (ie they’ve got the Forza logo on them)
    • “Forza Motorsport VIP Membership”, which will “entitle gamers to special treatment at the game’s auction house, community storefront, and on the game’s official forums.”
    • 5 cars, “available only through your VIP membership”
    • “Exclusive Collector’s Edition Car Pack”, which is five cars that have been “hand tuned and hand painted by the developers at Turn 10”
    • A Forza 3 dashboard theme.

    So a couple of cheap trinkets, vague community perks and some in-game cars is worth $20 now? What a world we live in.

    Forza 3 Box ArtSo far it has only been reported for North America and looking at the listing on GameStop’s website they seem to be claiming that they will be the exclusive re-seller for this edition. Also interesting is that they will have a pre-order bonus of an additional downloadable car, the Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro. For both brick & mortar and online shoppers pre-ordering any edition of the game.

    As of now the game is priced at about $80 and scheduled for released October 27th this year. While Kotaku doesn’t seem to happy with the package’s contence  I for one will be pleased as long as the case is of high quality, additional in-game content is always a sweet addition to any CE. I’m just happy that they’re going to give the US a Forza CE this time around since we all had to import it last time.

    COD: World at War One of First Games to Include NetFlix Trial

    November 11th, 2008 Michael Pica

    I picked up Call of Duty: World at War Limited Collector’s Edition today. I must say that it has the nicest case of any Call of Duty game released thus far (though the actual Bonuses for COD4 were much better).

    Interesting though is that this game included the previously rumored Netflix/XBL Gold trial code.
