All of you who admit to being suckers for flashy Collector’s Editions raise your hand. Mine’s upâ€¦ anybody else’s?
Well, here are some details on the newly announced CE for Dead Space 2, as well as a nice, shiny picture of what the whole package will contain. Let’s all join hands and pray we get this version in South Africa, unlike the awesome Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Collector’s Edition that comes with a jack-in-the-box. I so wanted the jack-in-the-box.
The standard stuff is there: a copy of the actual game (duh!); a code for downloadable content netting you a Unitology Suit and Force Gun (no idea what those are but they sound cool); some concept art lithographs; the Dead Space 2 soundtrack; a copy of Dead Space Extraction (which will feature Move support for the PS3 version); and a replica of Isaac’s Plasma Cutter.
A replica. Of Isaac’s. Plasma. Cutter. This is the best thing ever because now you won’t have to fear the dark after extended Dead Space sessions – you’ll be armed! I have a love-hate relationship with Dead Space: I love it because EA took a gamble on a new IP and it paid off with a deliciously atmospheric game; I hate it because it scares the crap out of me to such an extent that I still need to finish the first game. Fortunately I have some time to do that as Dead Space 2 is only out on 25 January 2011.
