I really do think that a videogame franchise ought to have at least one highly popular release under its belt before it has the nerve to start offering special editions. Doing one for the first game in a series always looks presumptuous to me. Nevertheless, Dead Space is getting one … and it’ll set you back $150.
Unlike most “limited editions,” one thing that can be said for this is that it is actually limited. Apparently, only 1,000 are being made, so it will be incredibly hard to get your hands on a copy. If you have both the cash and the luck to snag it though, here’s what you get:
- Special Ultra Limited Edition packaging
- Dead Space Downfall Animated Movie (DVD)
- Bonus content DVD
- Exclusive lithograph art
- 97-page Dead Space art book written and illustrated by the development team
- 160-page Graphic novel
- Ishimura crew patch
That’s quite a haul. Since you’re here, be sure to check out Hamza’s hands-on with the game, as well as my first Jimpressions of EA’s hot looking sci-fi title. Don’t forget to check out the Destructoid review of Dead Space: Downfall either.
Clicking any of those links will not help you get your hands on the limited edition though.
