Want a Dead Space 3 Watch? That will be 265 Dollars

GamerFitNation: Apparently EA is not only milking Dead Space 3 with its 11 DLC’s on launch day, but they are also releasing a watch that is an exact replica of the one that the main protagonist Issac Clarke wears in the game. You might be thinking that this is something cheap and simple product for profit, but this is EA we are talking about. They don’t live in the realm of cheap. The watch which only has 500 being made is going to cost you a whopping 265 dollars. (Culture, Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Glad I don't want one *puts $265 back in his wallet*

Wonder how long that would actually last with being worn. that's one large turning screw element there.

It's EA, every 3 months you have to do a micro transaction so it will keep on working

Plus, the minute hand is DLC.

It has a feature to set itself to the correct time, but you'll need to buy an online pass for that to work.
brish  +   910d ago
You forgot to mention the day one DLC!

For an additional $50 you can download a brand new feature that allows the watch to tell time during PM!

EA denies reports that the PM feature was removed from the watch to charge customers more.

>As worn by Isaac Clarke in Dead Space 3

Let me guess... They added one scene where he checks his watch and ultimately, they have included such scene/in game model to justify the 265 dollar price tag for a crappy watch.

Sad. Nothing more, nothing less.

does the disagree really believe there will be some scene with a deep meaning involving the watch :p ?

I'd rather have his plasma rifle
plmkoh  +   910d ago
No scene and you'll barely notice at all, but he does wear it when he's not in the armour.

Doesnt look that cool to me either.. $265? I rather get the WiiU

That thing better glow blue with some yellow glowing ambiance in between the numbers, or a red glow instead of yellow. It better make some cool dead space sound as part of a built in alarm. It should also be water resistant. That's all I could think of I guess for that watch.

I guess people actually bought the watch made for Mass Effect 3. It cost even more too.

This is a pure horror dear EA.
Allsystemgamer  +   910d ago
The price is scarier than the game...
KwietStorm  +   910d ago
That's about $50 more than my watch, and it looks pretty damn flimsy with a rubber wristband lol.. Rubber. No thanks.
stone_cold  +   910d ago

r21  +   910d ago

Coincidentally, the game will cost you the same price!
phantomexe  +   910d ago
lol a watch well you wont get a disagree from me the watch is alittle much.
Mocat  +   910d ago
i'm sorry i just had to disagree, i was trying to figure out what you were trying to say, i could not figure it out.
phantomexe  +   910d ago
It's funny they would try and sell it for so much. I was saying no one here would get a disagree from me. That's milking it. I was reading all the comments above.
Mocat  +   910d ago
Ah thanks for making that clear :)
Conzul  +   910d ago
I'd buy it if I could shoot stasis with it. That's about the only thing that could justify the price.
XXXL  +   910d ago
You suck EA
Aclay  +   910d ago
Coming from an avid watch buyer, considering that there's only 500 being made and they are all individually numbered on the back, I'd say $265 is a very fair price...the dial design just isn't anything special.

I think it would've been cool if they had the glowing helmet of Issac's suit as the dial design, at least then it would look a little more distinctive:

That's pretty cheap
FarCryLover182  +   910d ago
I'd buy one. But not at that price. Maybe for $20 or less.
TheDivine  +   910d ago
They should include them in a limited edition with the game, watch, and art book for a hundred. That would be dope.

If I was a rich nerd instead of a poor nerd I'd buy it for the collectibility and because its fucking dope as hell but alas, I'm not. :(
Despair666  +   910d ago
Cool...do i have to pay 10 bucks more to tell the time?
BanBrother  +   910d ago
Wow! They have the nerve to sell us this watch that should have been included in the game? F*** your dlc watch. /s
TechOne  +   910d ago
265 $ lol
ironfist92  +   910d ago
The replica watch from Metro 2033 didnt cost an arm and a leg, and it had actual use in the game, thus was relevant and WORTH buying.
shivvy24  +   910d ago
Its EA what do you expect, now they are selling a watch thats already in the game , real life DLC so that brings us to a total of 12 dlc

VTKC  +   910d ago
there are far better watches to buy for that price.
tubers  +   910d ago
Who the hell would buy this? And I thought the DLC spam was bad.

Does this even have batteries? Or are those treated as DLC's as well?
KaBaW  +   910d ago
The watch face itself doesn't look bad, at all. But, I'm not digging the rubber band, too much.
And, I'm definitely not digging that price point, what so ever. $265 is just way too much.
