One will go for $80, the other for $160
Got money burning a hole in your pocket? Then you're in luck as Sony has revealed two different special editions of The Last of Us for North America territories. First, there's the Survival Edition that will go for $79.99. This will include a full size 170-page artbook by Dark Horse (which will be available as a standalone for $39.99 too), steelbook case, and issue #1 of a comic series on Ellie's backstory. You'll also be getting the Sights & Sounds DLC pack which includes the soundtrack, a PS3 dynamic theme, and PSN Avatars.
The Post-Pandemic Edition is the fancy overpriced version going for $160 available only from GameStop. That will net you the game with steelbook, comic, the Sights & Sounds DLC, and a 12" premium statue of Joel and Ellie by Project Triforce. You'll also be getting the Survival DLC Pack giving you multiplayer bonus XP, melee booster, in-game cuurency, character items, and bonus Joel and Ellie skins.
I'm so over collectible statues it's not even funny. That Survival Edition with the $40 artbook though sounds way better to me by miles.
