We have some sad news: If you wish to pick up a copy of the Mass Effect Limited Collector’s Edition, you’ll have to avoid retail at all costs. It appears the package will only be available online through EB Games/GameStop when it launches this November.
The package — which was revealed earlier in the month — contains all kinds of fancy goodies for your the Mass Effect fanatic in us all. From our original announcement post:
Those who shell out $69.99 for the Mass Effect Limited Collector’s Edition will snag a book, Galactic Codex: Essentials, which will presumably be a streamlined race, character, and story index. You may or may not be able to get that information here, but don’t tell anyone. Additionally, the package also ships with an art book, A Future Imagined, and a 2nd DVD with exclusive Mass Effect videos (Art of Mass Effect, Interactive Storytelling of Mass Effect).
While we’re sure this version will be available used when people trade it in at your local retailer for crack money, we just wanted to give you a heads up. Pre-order now to avoid disappointment.
