Namco Bandai revealed today that details on the upcoming Dark Souls Collector’s Edition on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
more money to spend
I will get it for the sake of it, I will burn the guide though, don't want to have a guide for something like this game, it will ruin the experience...
Now this is developer that deserves my money and will have my money! While it would be nice to have the guide eventually. I will be playing through it the first time raw, unassisted. I played Dark Souls through the first time that way and it was extremely rewarding. Sure I didn't know what I was doing and I'm sure I missed a lot but it so incredibly satisfying.
Did I read that right? The collectors edition will be the same price as the regular edition? Who in their sane mind would bother getting the regular edition anymore?!
You can send the guide on over to me .. no need to burn it. :)
That wouldn't look out of place sat next to my Demon's Souls black phantom edition :)
Don't burn it, just lock it away until your second playthrough. If this game is as close to DS as it looks, then you'll definitely need a guide to get everything out of it.
It would be lame to go through this game using the guide the first time...ReadDead is right it most certainly will ruin the experience...Its not fun when you know exactly what is going to happen..if that is the case then just buy the guide and read the whole thing and POOF you have beaten the game.
@afterMoth You played Dark Souls already? XD
"The Collector’s Edition will retail the same price as the regular edition which is $59.99." doesnt look like thats the case here.
I am so getting this edition and it's a steal for the same price as the original.
Exactly. If only every preorder incentive was this awesome...
I pre ordered from zavvi with free shipping. Yippee. Bargain I would say.
YES, FINALLY! *goes off to change preorder type*
were you able to find this already listed somewhere for pre order? Amazon hasn't listed a collectors edition yet.
Same. I can't find the collector's edition anywhere.
If you're going to disagree with me could you please let me know where to pre-order it or are you disagreeing just for the sake of being an ass?
No, I am going to see if my local EB Games has it later this week. Edit: Oops sorry, I had to edit this statement, b/c I thought I was replying to a Witcher 2 article. Edit 2: I was looking at the gamefaqs board, and apparently ZAVVI has had this listed for some time. If you live in PAL territories, grabbing it from there would be easier.
yea the disagree troll is strong on n4g.com
@ARIJayden Thanks. I really appreciate your advice. I will definitely get my hands on the CE any way possible. If the music and art are as good as Demon's Souls the OST and art book would be a necessity. I already checked Gamestop and Amazon and found nothing. I'm sure pre-orders will be available soon.
That game guide is going to be like a Holy Book during the first play through lol
I only hope the guide is very durable (remember the minor fiasco with Demon's Soul's guide?). Offtopic: I wish I knew about the renewal plan, b/c my guide is tearing apart (and believe me, I take super care of my stuff).
First plythrough i will get someone to hide it from me. I wouldn't want to ruin the magic. Good luck on the 28th.
This game is already sold. I'd consider buying if there was a figure or something.
A figurine like Garl Vinland would be awesome.
lol @ disagrees. I adore Demon Souls. I've beat it 3 times since the PSN was down. I put away my cases for art books don't hack it for me. But a figurine gets a spot on my desk at work. Or maybe a Red Knight... Hell a small replica weapon or something.
Such a goof missed that it was the same price as normal. Haha Admittedly I scanned it for a figure and wrote it off. Cool if I get it on accident but im not gonna lose sleep if not.
Lovely. I wish it was October already... I haven't been this excited for a game in a while.
Me either. i was late to the demon souls party and since then i have been lookign for any game to fill that void.
Might get it but I wouldn't take a single look through the game guide. I wanna just be thrown into the game without knowing anything.
yea guides ruin stuff ont eh 1st play through.
I don't know... I feel like i'm stealing money from ATLUS :/
This is gonna carry a heavy price tag after it releases.
wow this is really nice havent preordered this yet but does anyone think i should do that now or would it be ok to wait for a bit?
wow this edition looks sweet. Must get this.
Oh my god! YES! I will totally grab this...but I suppose I should hurry, huh? Haha, can't wait til October!
I will be having that.
I wonder if the word "Umbasa" will still be used. It must! It's the greatest word ever invented. I am going to name my first child Umbasa.
Where can we pre order this editon?
Devs giving consumers some actual incentive...? I like it. Take note all you other devs. A gold gun unlock isn't incentive.
dont even have to ask, im gettin this no matter what!
I'm been reading up on this an am beginning to think that you get the Collector's Edition as a bonus for pre-ordering the game. Anyone else agree?
I agree, here in Sweden one of the biggest retailers informs that the L.E. will only be available with the first delivery. Quite nice bonus I must say. I did a pre-order anyway. :)
Presentation looks excellent.. Must buy
WANT! WANT WANT WANT!
Hmmm, If I didn't like/care for Demon Souls will I equally not care for this game? Serious question guys, I havent looked into this game at all.
If you didn't care for Demon's Souls, then it is highly doubtful you will like this game. It is the spiritual successor (it even moves and sounds like Demon's Souls)...the difficulty is supposed to be just as hard if not Harder. However, it is supposed to be more "open-world(y)" (not true sandbox), so if it is the levels thing that bothered you, then maybe you will like Dark Souls. On a personal note, I'm sorry you don't like Demon's Souls that much...I haven't liked a game and have a game consume me like that in over a decade. I'm not alone in this thought either. To each their own.
Did I just read this right? Dark Souls for PlayStation3 Dark Souls for Xbox 360 Game guide Original soundtrack Behind-the-scenes video Special hardback art book Special art book So you get an XBOX 360 version and a PS3 version hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
You can pre order the collectors from the hut or zavi for 43 Euros.
This is definitely the way to fight piracy! what do you guys think?
