Gears of War 2 Collectors Edition

1 min read


A site called World Gaming News has posted up this image and a whole bunch of details about the Gears 2 Collectors Ed. So what’s inside lets take a look.

Since the details are pretty straightforward, I am going to paste them from the WGN article straight, so here they are:

Sorry, you are going to have to take the jump for all the details. I do however have a few questions on this stories legitimacy.

[Thanks to Flameboy for the tip]

“Beneath the Surface: An Inside Look at Gears of War 2,” a 48-page hardbound book including character profiles, exclusive concept art, and foreword by Design Director Cliff Bleszinski

A Bonus DVD including exclusive making-of-the-game video footage, design galleries with audio commentary by Epic Games, and promotional videos including the E3 2008 trailer, “Rendezvous”

A Dominic and Maria Keepsake Photo

A Exclusive Xbox LIVE code to unlock a gold-plated Lancer Assault Rifle for online play

All in a Steel book DVD case”

Thing is… I don’t know if I trust this. The image is obviously not a photo and has been made as a mock up in a photo, which, as a graphic designer, I have done many times before so it’s easy to spot a few inconsistencies. So it’s with this in mind that I am at the very least doubting whether or not this is the final artwork.

The Disc’s are a little off in their perspective and why in the hell would a promo pic from Epic have such a low res looking image for the photo of Dom and Maria. We will have to wait and see, but like I said, at the very least I don’t think that the image is legit and may have been created by someone after they heard of the details.

  1. Sounds almost like the previous collectors Edition, which to be honest was a waste of money. Then again back in 2006 CE’s were going for R550

    The only reason I’ll be getting this is to go with my gears 1 CE, CE’s these days are a waste though and most of the time the cash can be put to better use but I can’t have a vanilla edition with my CE, it just won’t look right 🙁

    Looks cool to me. The behind the scenes book should be interesting. Who cares about a Dom & Maria photo though…?? What are we supposed to do with that? 😉
