I'm jizzing over the metal case (not literally...yet), but wtf with the digital soundtrack download. Gimme a physical disk. Yeah, in terms of listening to the music, digital distribution is probably easier for most people, but I like physical stuff. Either way, I'm pre-ordering for the goodies (ps3 baby, can't wait to play online, lol). I just hope the gameplay is not changed too much. I'm not a hardcore l33t gamer, but the first one really wasn't that hard, you just had to plan a bit, couldn't attack crazy-loco kamikaze style and live. I hope they don't make it unfairly difficult and unplayable.

Thanks for posting this. Hopefully I can still preorder this on Saturday and still get it.

I'm still kicking myself for not getting the Demon's Souls CE. I LOVED Demon's Souls, and I'm a CE collector as is, so I'm just annoyed for that. :(

Is there a reason to get PS3 over 360 that we know of? I own both but buy cross-platformers on 360 since that is what the majority of my friends have. With that asked, I am 110% ordering this...Demon's Souls is one of my top 10 games ever.

First game came out on PS3, which is why I'd lean towards the PS3 for the second game.

If the platforms end up being identical, then I'd lean towards 360, unless there's some bonus you get for importing past games from Demon's Souls into Dark Souls.

Going with the PS3 version because it just feels better to me.

Besides, 360 is a shooter console so good luck finding anyone online after the first couple of weeks. Backed by all 29 people on friend list sticking exclusively to CoD 2KXX in the last few years, disgusts me.

I hope the guide is as awesome as the Demon Soul's guide. Besides Hyperdimension Neptunia, the DE version of Demon's Souls is the last game I paid MSRP for and I'll definitely pay MSRP for this game.

57.99 for a CE of a great game? Pffft Amazon I don't even need a goldbox to order this.

Even though I typically relegate my PS3 games to exclusives I will be getting Dark Souls for PS3. The controls in Demons Souls just felt right on the PS3 and I'm not sure the 360 controller would have the same feel to it.

So your friends disgust you? Or all 360 players disgust you? Seems like a weird thing to get disgusted by, especially since 95% of shooters come out on both platforms and two recent PS3 exclusives were both shooters.

Contents look great and it's a free upgrade? Awesome, just awesome. Nice to see Namco taking care of the game's fans just like Atlus would, too.

Paid off my preorder with some credit from trading in old textbooks.

Pre-ordered, even if this one does drop in price after release getting this CE edition for $60 will still be worth it.

Boom. Pre-ordered.

I might not have otherwise got this game on Day 1 since I have yet to start Demon's Souls. But I want this edition.

Demon Souls was one of the biggest disappointments of the year for me. Considering how fast it dropped, too, I'll be waiting for this one.

On the plus side, the free upgrade is a great incentive to go along with the default preorder benefit of being the smuggest gamer in the room

It was a smooth ride.

Best game this gen gets a sequel, and a free collector's edition upgrade. Sounds like a plan to me.

Can't wait.

Pretty much anyone thats thinks only shooters are worth playing disgust me. Fortunately there are other areas of interest where my friends' lack of tastes aren't so apparent.

Also PS3 getting bogged down with exclusives doesn't bother me as Ar Tonelico & a flood on RPGs will soon come to it as well. Besides, I'd care about SOCOM 4 if it were back to 1 & 2's classic tactical gameplay instead of being CoD in third person, if I wanted a hollywood movie I'd watch one.

Ill most definitely preorder once the CE is listed. I dont trust the retailer to 'upgrade' the order even if they are the same price though.

I think much like all of the other LE's that have come out *see Medal of Honor* The first print will all be CE after those run out anyone who wants the CE will be SOL.

Think this is a little different because of the Steelbox, artbook, and mini guide. All of the "free" upgrades were just head start perks or maps that are already on the disc. Looking at it on Amazon and it doesn't see the free upgrade. Guess I missed out.
