Not bad, the metal case looks pretty good.

alexcosborn1218d ago

Not a huge fan of Collector's Editions, but man, I am a sucker for metal cases :D

Nimblest-Assassin1218d ago (Edited 1218d ago )

The EU ones have more stuff in them, kinda wanted a statue...

also the pricing seems kinda off considering what the GOW:A CE has in it, and its the same price as this.

Akuma-1218d ago

when you see a quality game like this on an old system like the ps3 how can a person waste 400quid to buy a wii u and zombie u. how can a person buy wii u that is new but all the tech of its games are way below the last of us.

i cant wait to get this survival edition along with beyond and other top ps3 exclusives like gow asc. then there will be announcement of the ps4. i cant wait

rainslacker1217d ago

@nimblest

They also have the post-pandemic edition which has a statue and some other stuff. $159.99 at gamestop.

Irishguy951217d ago

Yeah Akuma, I said the same when the Ps3 came out. Comparing it to the Xbox 360 Entertainment System for Elite gamers

Nimblest-Assassin1217d ago (Edited 1217d ago )

@rainslacker

159.99 is pretty steep... I already paid of the songbird edition for bioshock infinite

And the post pandemic one doesn't even come with the art book -_-

Never mind... its turns out the post pandemic edition is exclusive to the US only. Im in Canada.. so I can't get it

Whatever... the artbook is 180 pages, so I guess I will get this

@Akuma
Have you ever developed a game in your life? No? Well, I wouldn't be stating anything that you are doing just now. The tablet to the Wii U is something very new and that hasn't been done yet so far. And if you ever done any sort of coding like any other computer engineers like myself, then you would understand that getting better graphics is an ease as compared to do something that has never been done before.

badz1491217d ago

OMG I hope it will come here in my country too!

What the hell, how the hell do you guys get a metal case and a hard cover but us in Europe don't

Was this really a game where you needed two editions....sorry three since our editions have been spilt in two.

I love metal cases, what restrictions could there possibly be to not include it in Europe.

th3n00bg4m3r1217d ago

I don't understand? When will Sony learn? Where do most of their games sell? In Europe. Where do most of their console sell? In Europe. I am not saying North-America should not get this, but it pains me to see Sony favoring North America for their exclusives. God Of War: Saga and Kill-Zone Trilogy are also North America exclusives. What The Fuck Sony?

jetlian1217d ago (Edited 1217d ago )

EU cost them more money with all the translations needed. You sell more because theres more people and EU really includes asia and australia.

Also importing there is taxed more.

Root1217d ago

" with all the translations needed "

See this is where the UK should be counted as the same region as America. We're an English speaking country, I don't see why we should suffer because of the rest of Europe....where not even joint onto everyone else for christ sake.

omi25p1217d ago

The Answer is simply.

Sony are full of sh*t and completely ignore the majority of their user base.

With every single PS3 exclusive they seem to go out of their way to screw over Europe.

This is the main reason i hate sony and it annoys me their exclusives are so good that i have to own their console.

listenkids1217d ago

@thenoobgamer

Look at EU Playstation plus in comparison, then argue EU has it bad.

violents1217d ago

I think it has something to do with regional trademarks and trade issues and taxes more than anything, you know different laws and regulations in different places. And sometimes its not worth it for the manufacturer to cut through all the red tape to try to sell it to you. You cant blame them for not selling you something that wouldnt make them money. why on earth would any company not want to sell you stuff, that would be stupid in any business. I'm sure there's a reason certian things cant be sold in some places.

Root1217d ago

@violents

but yet they've sold us other good collectors editions before.

Example: The Uncharted 3 Explorer edition, Killzone 3's, Resistance 3's and inFAMOUS 2s

It just laziness to be honest, SCEE got to come up with what they wanted to give us and they came up with a crappy idea.

Naughty Dog art book... Yeap definitely buying.

imdaboss11217d ago

cant wait for this game to come out

zeddy1217d ago

never bought a special ed and never will.

xursz1217d ago

[offtopic]
Isn't special ed. for people with learning dissabilities?

Obligatory on-topic comment: I will get this game.

lilbrat231217d ago

I think $160 is a bit much for a Statue and hard case and stickers. I think the TR edition is only $100 but I guess because it is VERY LIMITED they hiked the price on it.

miyamoto1216d ago

this game really isn't for the casual gamer

DarkBlood1218d ago (Edited 1218d ago )

pretty good price too, this survival edition is a day one purchase for me

Wedge191218d ago

It's amazing how many games are now trending towards Special Editions in order to make a bit of extra cash. I'm not against it, at least the base price of games isn't going up, but it seems that nearly every game has a box set collectors special supremo metal case bonus comic edition now.

TrendyGamers1218d ago

I'm all for special editions as long as they aren't overpriced.

Sev1218d ago

I don't think I've ever purchased a special edition of anything, because I'm cheap son of a bitch.

$60 is too much money for a game, let alone paying $80-150 for one game's special edition.

The only one I ever wanted was Skyrim for that Alduin statue. But even I resisted that one. But yeah, I'm just cheap.

LOGICWINS1218d ago (Edited 1218d ago )

I'm in for special editions when they offer value. This one doesn't, at least not to the extent that the GOW: Ascension special edition does(the DLC voucher ALONE is worth the extra $20, not to mention you also get an avatar pack, statue, dynamic theme, XP bonus, soundtrack, AND special packaging).

Who here is hyped for ND stickers?

/facepalm

This is one of the rare instances when you get more value from pre-ordering a regular edition at Gamestop. You get BOTH Sights and Sounds AND The Survival Pack just for pre-ordering.

The fact that Sony didn't also include the Survival pack in the special edition tells me that this will be another DLC milkage from ND, just like Uncharted 3. Expect a season pass for this one guys. I'll wait for the complete edition.

Soldierone1217d ago

Its been happening for a while though, and we need to be careful about it. Last generation EA started doing it and their "special editions" were 60 dollars, and now thats standard price.

If special editions were flying off shelves at 70 or 80, the price might go up again because of it. Kinda like testing the waters. Luckily a lot of them don't sell, just the extremely popular ones.

dbjj120881218d ago

Ok, I'll buy. $80 isn't bad

ftwrthtx1218d ago

Decent price. Must pre-order this one.
