I did read on an EA Press Release that a Limited Edition will be available for the PS3 which will also include an HD version of "Dead Space Extraction" (originally only released on the Wii). I presume PlayStation Move support for both DS2 and DSE in the Limited Edition. Not sure if the same content will be for 360.
They haven't announced the details of the Collectors Edition yet, but have only confirmed that there WILL be one. As far as what is to be included, I know that the developers asked for gamer feedback (via the Dead Space 2 Facebook Page) and a large consensus wants a replica Plasma Cutter. For me, I don't know if that would be the very best... but it would be pretty cool!
I saw this story break but now *when* will it show up for sale?? I'd love to get Ignition for free, but I want the pre-order to be for the CE version of Dead Space... hopefully Amazon won't shaft us and make the bonus only available for normal version of the game like they do with the other promotions.
My guess is that the pressure is going to be on EA now to announce this CE, because this story is spreading like wildfire, I've seen it in Kotaku and Escapist about the leak. The Ignition bonus *should* be for all versions, since it is more of an EA promo than an Amazon promo and punishing people who pay more seems silly, but who knows?
Well after seeing that image, I guess I'm going to just have to wait until they open up pre-orders for the collector's edition before I get my free Ignition download. My god... my very own plasma cutter. I'm going to dance around my darkened house making sound effects and pretending my cat is a necromorph. God I love being an adult.
Sweeeeeeet... That's going to be hard to beat; and this 'leak' looks very credible. I haven't ever purchased a CE or LE for my 360, but this is looking like a must-have. Bummer I'm in Mexico where it'll easily run me 30-50% more than it would it the states, but I think I'm going to have to throw down for this. I've got several months to save up, after all :)
EA folded like a deck of cards, the collector's edition was officially announced today. I am guessing the retailers will start getting their preorders in line within the next two days. I wonder how long they would have waited to announce this without the leak? Which really makes you wonder if it was really a leak at all.
Sweet, I should still be able a pick up a copy in Mexico then, Thanks D. Flotte :) It'll probably run in the neighborhood of $100+ here but whatever. If not I guess I could just order a copy on Amazon and have it waiting for me next time I go back home, but that could be awhile... I just played through my 2nd run on the original last night and I think I'll have to fire it up again in anticipation for my soon-to-come CE. This time it's impossible mode and plasma cutter only; I still have two achievements left :)
