Not bad, the metal case looks pretty good.

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

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.

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

@nimblest

They also have the post-pandemic edition which has a statue and some other stuff. $159.99 at gamestop.
Irishguy95  +   852d ago
Yeah Akuma, I said the same when the Ps3 came out. Comparing it to the Xbox 360 Entertainment System for Elite gamers
Nimblest-Assassin  +   852d 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

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.

metal case??
OMG I hope it will come here in my country too!
Root  +   852d ago
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.

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?
jetlian  +   852d 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.

" 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.
omi25p  +   852d 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.

Look at EU Playstation plus in comparison, then argue EU has it bad.
violents  +   851d 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.
Root  +   851d 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.

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.

Wedge19  +   852d 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.
TrendyGamers  +   852d ago
I'm all for special editions as long as they aren't overpriced.
Sev  +   852d 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.
LOGICWINS  +   852d 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.

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.
dbjj12088  +   852d ago
Ok, I'll buy. $80 isn't bad

th3n00bg4m3r  +   852d ago
The Europe Edition is not awesome. While North-America gets a fully sized steal made art book, we get a mini art book. Same thing with the comic. While North America gets a statue of Joel and Ellie we get a water bottle. While North America gets a colorful attractive steal made cover we get a black and white unattractive steal made cover.

Day 1, easily GOTY for me.

So what does the 2nd version come with? US gamestop has two versions up for reserve.

I'm hoping for that infected bust statue + all of that ^ for $150

You are a troll. Give us a list of identical comparisons between Uncharted and TLOU and I doubt you would come up with anything other than it's a third-person game with the same artstyle.

Wait a bit confused here. Does US get Survival Edition AND Post-Pandemic Edition? Just asking because it wasn't exactly made clear in the article.

The Post-Pandemic one is cool but I don't need a statue plus I'm not shelling out $160 for one game, but the Survival Edition with that artbook though I would gladly buy the Survival Edition.
BlaqMagiq24  +   852d ago
Never mind. Just saw it on the PlayStation blog. May be going after the Survival Edition now. I also wonder if they'll do a GOTY Edition. It might make me regret buying it day one if I don't wait. But I want this game so bad.
banjadude  +   851d ago
Damn, too bad the Post-Pandemic edition doesn't also include the artbook.
