What makes the Last Of Us' special editions unique? Let CenturyGaming.co.uk tell you how.
Hardly, that is if were talking about the UK's special editions. I just can't believe ND couldn't be arsed to give us the Last Of Us Post Pandemic Edition, instead they give us two separate smaller editions. Why not just us a Joel AND Ellie edition so we wouldn't have to choose between the two. Not too mention we get a smaller comic book and a smaller artbook. I mean what's up with that, could you not give us a normal sized comic and artbook. Then over a statue we get a LittleBigPlanet costume and a controller skin...yeah thats right a controller skin, who the hell even uses them anyway, talk about old fashioned. By the way i think your totally forgetting the massive steelbook collectors out there. Steelbooks are better then canvas wraps. Canvas wraps are nice if they included steelbooks aswell but people would rather have a steelbook then one of those.
These special editions kick ass. The full size Art Book alone costs $39.99 MSRP. 170 Pages of goodness, and a comic to go along. I do dislike that there's 2 editions in the UK, like Joel and Ellie edition. And that the UK have smaller editions of the art book and comic. But they do get a little more from controller skins, poster, canvas cover and avatars in LBP2. Also pre-ordering the season pass gives you bonus content too, that I thought should've been added to the survival edition. I dropped $80 for the survival edition and probably going to drop $20 on the season pass. I rarely do that, but these special editions was more than just a steel book and bonus DLC, so it justified my purchase. Can't wait!!
Sony have slowly killed all my excitement for this game. I've got it on preorder and i know il love it. Just every Sony has done to market it has slowly ruined it for me by not selling collectors editions in the UK and other things.
@ Mr_Nuts Love your avatar picture... LoL -but yeah I agree with you, I would have loved a steel-book case, I think the problem is much thought doesn't really go into these things, but that being said I just went with the reg. version. I mean most of the time these special editions just collect dust anyway so no big deal. -And I will be enjoying this game when it drops, can't wait to play the demo.. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
Got my post pandemic preordered! I can't wait!
@disagrees, sorry for being excited...I guess?
Xbox fanboys being grumpy probably, can't say I blame them.
This happens a lot on N4G.
Last of Us is A Significant Step Up From Traditional Games
I,m sticking to the steel case.
The Last of Us — a significant step up from everything else.
I did pre-order the Joel Edition back in February and cannot wait for this game. E3 + The Last of Us = an awesome June.
I got the Joel edition for £40 from tesco so no complaints here as I would of paid £40 for the standard edition. My only complaint is that GAME have exclusive rights to the Ellie edition which is the one I preferred an as per usual are charging more than everyone else. Seriously I don't understand how GAME stay in business.
Well, if you would really like to get the Ellie Edition and have a credit card you could also order it from another European country, Germany, France, etc.. The easiest thing would be if you'd order it from Amazon, because you probably already have an account there. Two things, if you order from Amazon make sure to go to Amazon.de for example and not .co.uk so you don't buy it as an import and you should also know that the writing on the box will not be in English (btw, the codes will work everywhere in Europe) and I am not sure if the comic will be in English. I'm German and the comic that came with the InFamous 2 Hero Edition was in English (a DC comic). The game will have be multilingual though, just like any other Sony game here.
I just had a look and it's 80 Euros which is about £68 so it wouldn't be worth doing. I will definitely check for other items though on Amazon.de in the future so thank you for the idea! it's very much appreciated :)
Actually, after things like the RC Car or goggles in the special edition of COD, this doesn't really look like a step up. Not to mention the Ultimate Loot Chest Edition of Borderlands 2 which I am so sorry I missed: Thing was 150$ but went out of stock in a sneeze, and now retails for around 300$.
You gotta be kidding me. this not really a step up, it's just a cool CE, just like the recently announced GTA 5 CE, but do you really think that the Prestige edition for CoD were that good?! I only bought the Hardened Editions because the googles, RC Car and the drone were just cheap Chinese toy that looked good, but that's about it, cheap, useless and good looking, but not worth an additional 70€ imho.
Now this is actually not too bad, much better than the GTA V shit which offers a snap back and some shitty moneybag for £120
