*Exclusive bonus content on Xbox 360 and PC only:
• Replica of Isaac’s trusty Plasma Cutter, modeled from the new design from Dead Space 2.

*Exclusive to the PlayStation 3 pack only:
• The critically acclaimed Dead Space Extraction. See how it all began in the PlayStation® Move supported prequel to Dead Space, available for the first time in HD.
• Downloadable Rivet Gun for use in-game.

Wtf EA? So the PS3 CE doesn't get the Plasma Cutter? :|

Without the Plasma Cutter replica this collector's edition is pretty much worthless.

I'd much rather have the replica plasma cutter than the on rails shooter that flopped on the Wii.

Red_Orange_Juice2085d ago (Edited 2085d ago )

To be honest I don't want that plasma cutter, unless it works :P first I'd better play Extraction as it's a part of the franchise, also I don't collect this kind of stuff, figurines, plasma cutters, night vision googles, etc. I don't have space for it.

But is PS3 CE version worth the money now, doubtful

StarScream4Ever2085d ago

I'm sorry EA but where the heck is my plasma cutter?!

Red_Orange_Juice2085d ago (Edited 2085d ago )

MS says Hello
and PS. you'll never outplay us Sony /lol

Christopher2085d ago

So, let me get this straight...

PS3 CE and LE users get the game for free...

But, you'll pay the same price on the PS3 CE as you would for the 360 CE to get a DLC gun instead of a replica gun?

EA, you really f'd that one up. See absolutely no reason to get the CE on the PS3 unless you're a big fan of DLC.

HDgamer2085d ago

Wow, you see no reason why to get the ps3 version which comes with an extra game over one with a plastic toy gun. Kids these days.

Christopher2084d ago (Edited 2084d ago )

@HDGamer: I see absolutely no reason to get the CE version since the standard game comes with the same extra game for free. Note the second sentence above, both CE and LE games get the free game.

Why would I pay $20-30 more for a game when all I'm getting extra is a soundtrack and some DLC? I'll still get the game, both of them since all versions of the PS3 come with Dead Space: Extraction, not just the CE.

Christopher2084d ago

It looks like this will be EU only, so I await the incoming complaints (honestly deserved) by Europeans.

They can keep the plasma cutter. I'll gladly take Extraction.

King-Leonidas2085d ago (Edited 2085d ago )

hmm, you 360 guys will look at it, play with it for 1 hour and put it down and never touch it again.

EDIT

just realised that that sounded extremely sexual...

HorriblePanda2084d ago

are you a stupid git?? are all the real gamers playing the ps3?? your a sad rabid fanboy...... its trolls such as you that give gamers gaming and anything else we enjoy a bad name....

not every 360 player plays shitty games like cod but i am sure you play your fair share of it

King-Leonidas2084d ago (Edited 2084d ago )

Okay, tell me what else 360 gamers play instead of COD.

Kurt Russell2084d ago

I am a 360 gamer. I hate COD... But I fucking love Dead Space. Going to enjoy going pew pew pew at work with my toy :D

Kain812084d ago

-CE PS3 Version has DS Extraction + Replica + Soundtrack + exclusiv lithograph + suit and Force Gun (+ Dead space :Ignition for Free if you Preorederd DS2)

I want my plasma cutter EA...

3nd3rth32085d ago

All Dead Space 2 pre-orders for the PS3 come with Extraction at no charge, and I also got my code for Ignition today... Don't really care about the replica when I can have more gaming for free.

Red_Orange_Juice2085d ago

not only pre-orders, all copies come with Extraction

belal2085d ago

you guys cry over a plasma cutter while il play a second full game named dead space extraction :) il take a full game over some shitty decoration any time.

Christopher2085d ago (Edited 2085d ago )

That's the thing... you already get the second game for free with the regular game. It's not a part of the CE, it's with every PS3 game sold.

The problem is that they're attempting to sell a CE based on getting that game as a bonus in comparison to 360/PC getting the plasma cutter model... it's just not a bonus, it's the standard fare. So, essentially, PS3 users can get a CE and pay more for it for less. Really, no reason to get it unless you're really into DLC.

I personally encourage everyone to just by the standard Limited Edition. It's not like there won't be tons of armor/weapon DLC available after release for the fraction of the cost they want you to buy the CE at over the standard version.

GoldPS32084d ago (Edited 2084d ago )

I take the game. More value for the money. Besides if I got the plasma cutter it'll be in the closet collecting dust or on ebay.

darren_poolies2085d ago (Edited 2085d ago )

This is probably a very stupid question but, if I pre ordered Dead Space 2 (just the normal edition) for the PS3 from say Gamestation, would I get Extraction?

It's just that on the GAME and Gamestation websites, the product description for Dead Space 2 doesn't say anything about Extraction.
