Woof. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll stick to my $45 pre-order for the regular edition.

It doesn't seem that bad for an extra $20 over retail, particularly the 360 version which comes with the movie. I'm a steelbook collector of sorts too so that's always a nice plus.

That figure is seriously bad ass, and a lot better than some stupid pen imo.

hey i actually think the pen is pretty bad ass in its own right-not better than a figure obviously but still a cool original looking pen

Damnit, they break out the one thing that always gets me to pony up for a CE, a steelbook. :bomb:

I hope it's not another case of the "faux" steelbook like EA did with Dragon Age Origins.

Judging from the SFIV CE and RE5 CE runs, Capcom would probably print a shitload of this CE again. More than enough for us to find it dirt cheap a year later.

I was at Gamestop a few days ago, and they were permitted to take pre-orders for the CE. I was confused, because only a couple days before Joystiq had an article about how the U.S. WOULDN'T be receiving a C.E., showing the UK version in the picture. So I put in a pre-order for giggles to see what would come of it. Personally, I think this is an improvement over the UK version with a figure I'll stand up somewhere and forget about.

looks cool, but will wait to see if this game is basically co-op only like they did with lost planet 2, or if it can actually be played single player

This edition is a rip off compared to what the EU is getting .. sorry but a steelbook, artbook and a cheap pen? I guess it's worth it if you really love Steelbooks, but nothing says must have in this ... at least it's not $100 I guess.

I've got a drawer full of pens that look similar to these. The pharmaceutical reps pass these out at work like halloween candy.

I wouldn't say the SF IV CE had a large print run. I remember specifically the PS3 version becoming VERY hard to find within the first week or so. The only one I saw on shelves after the first couple of weeks was the 360 version as people wanted the Blu-Ray movie that came on PS3.

Have to wonder if the 360 CE of DR 2 will be the same thing as I would think they would sell more copies of it since the first one was 360 exclusive and it has the feature-length movie while the PS3 version does not.

I'm pretty sure I read that the PS3 version has the movie too ... I kinda doubt they used a Blu-ray disc for a 20 minute HD making of video and nothing else. I could be wrong, but I think the articles on either Kotaku or Joystiq were sort of poorly worded about the PS3 bluray but someone in the comments section clarified that they would both have the feature film on the special 3rd disc.

Edit: Actually, I take that back ... it appears the 360 does exclusively get the "movie" which appears to be similar to what MS did for Alan Wake prior to its release. Anyone expecting an actually fully developed film though will probably be disappointed. Here's just a taste -

When I read about this an hour ago I was thinking the same thing etcrane was... it seems strange that Capcom would devote an entire blu-ray just for a 24 minute documentary, I'm thinking there was a screw-up in the press release.

I also think it'll be cheaper down the line.

I think that pen is pretty awesome. I learned to stay away from collectors editions though. This one is going to drop faster than the bioshock 2 one.

in for 1. Love Dead Rising. The steelbook is pretty clever, looking like a pill case. The movie also intrigues me too... Look at Dead Space movie. It was pretty effin awesome. I bought that on blu ray. I won't get my hopes up, but I think there's some chance it could at least be decent.

Just to let you know (and to refute your statement to a certain degree), I got a couple of the Zombrex syringe pens at GDC (the exact ones from this CE) and I was able to sell all three for $120 each. So as stupid as this may sound to you, some people actually think that pen is pretty cool. I also got those posters and bandaids as well and sold them for a pretty penny ($80 and $30, respectively). Zombrex stuff single handedly paid for my trip to the conference.

I for one, don't need a bunch of stupid action figures from CEs. I like my pack-ins to be a bit classier, so I prefer the US CE over the PAL one. This thread is actually reminding me a lot of the Bioshock 2 CE thread where people bitched about not having an action figure.

So your point is that a small percentage of uneducated people will pay lots of money for overpriced crap? I don't really think that's anything new. Not to mention, the value you found in those items came purely from lack of availability, not actual value ... so when this CE is released those pens that you may have sold for $120 each when they were impossible to find will be worth far less, and in the real world are about as valuable as a $1.25 pen from Office Depot because it's the same type of pen.

At least the zombie figure in the EU edition is somewhat rare and has a higher real world value in its production than the pen, bandaid and pad of paper included with this set. This particular set isn't classy ... it's cheap. The bioshock 2 CE at least had some items that were indeed classy, but a full artbook and record are quite different than a pen, mini artbook and a few other items, just my opinion.
