October 11th, 2011 gurpswoo1

Sega will be releasing two Collector’s Edition for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games aswell as a new Limited console.

The first is a Limited Edition exclusive to Ebgames in Australia, it will contain the following:

  • Steel Tin
  • Poster
  • T Shirt
  • Notebook
  • Carry Bag
Priced at $88 AUD,  it will be released on the 17 – Nov – 2012 it canbe pre-ordered here.


For Europe, Sega will be releasing a Special Edition which contains a standard copy of the game and comes with a Metal Steel Tin, similar to Super Mario Galaxy 2.  Certain retailers will have this edition in each country so be on the look out. Amazon UK has this listed already and can be pre-ordered here 



Lastly is the release of a Limited Edition Wii console, it will contain a console and Wii mote in Sonic blue, although I don’t see the resemblance in the colour myself.  It also contains a pack of Mario and Sonic sticker. With the release of Wii-U around the corner this is more than likely the last of the true limited edition Wii consoles.

UK pre-orders are open but expect this to be Europe and Australian wide, no word on a North American release yet.

Pre-order for £135  from GAME UK here

Exclusive In-Game Items:

  • Alternate darkling outfit – “Crazy Abdul”

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.


Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Announced

October 5th, 2011 Michael Pica

If you pay close attention to the news you’ve probably caught wind of the Limited Edition of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection that has been announced for the North American market. I’ve received dozens of emails on the subject so I figured I better post up the news.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Limited Edition (Xbox 360) [NTSC] (Konami)

Available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 the Limited Edition includes the standard edition of the release along with what looks like a fairly substantial hard-cover Art Book. This makes for a fairly simple LE release though the large box that will house the two items was designed by Yoji Shinkawa.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Limited Edition (Xbox 360) [NTSC] (Konami)

While this wont be nearly as sought after as the very quickly sold out Zavvi exclusive SteelBook variant of this release, it would make an excellent pickup for any fan of the series.

Slated for release on November 8th you can pre-order through [PS3] [Xbox 360] or pretty much any other game retailer for about $80.
