VG247: Looks like Americans hoping to get their hands on the nice-looking Heavy Rain Collector's Edition will have to import it. "We will not be carrying this in the US," a SCEA rep confirmed to VG247 today.
oh well , just give me a released date sony , i really want to play the game
I would've dropped the cash for it. Release date is needed also
wtf!!!!!!!! this is gay!!!!!!!! no uncharted special edition, no god of war trilogy, now no heavy rain collector's!??? im officially ticked off...
Sucks, but whatever. Europe almost never gets better than America in gaming. Enjoy some preferential treatment for a change.
At least you guys get Demon's Souls and other games that Atlus does for the US. It's silly that the US doesn't get Heavy Rain Collector's edition but Europe misses out on quite a bit too. edit: Anyone know what the collector's edition will include? For all I know the Americans might not be missing out on much.
Dynamic Theme First DLC for free Soundtrack "Rain-effect" slipcase
aside from final fantasy 13 versus and kingdom hearts 3 this is the only game im reallly looking forward to =D
Finally some Euro exclusive stuff. Sort of makes up for Demon's Souls, God of War Collection, Redi Evil 2 & 3, Abe's Oddysee / Exodus... Not that i'm bitter about not having them yet...the option to import is always there. It's the same price as the regular edition on HMV's website, so i'm definately upgrading.
So where can I import this thing?
They don't miss out on much... They get the same 1st downloadable episode free as a pre order gift The soundtrack is digital anyway The theme will most likeley be released in a different way there, eg as premium content or in qore The only thing they're missing out on is the cool cover, and there's always a chance that it'll be another preorder gift or something :P And also, we (the EU) don't miss out on the god of war trilogy it's already been confirmed on the EU ps blog that we're getting the pandoras box edition at the very least, so even if we don't get the collection as a standalone game, we can atleast still get it through the pandoras special edition
meh, whatever. i'm more interested in the GoW3 and GT5 special editions anyway.
on play.com it says 26th feb but game.co.uk say march 26th ive ordered it off play anyway
Would play.com accept US currency? If not, are there any other sites like playasia? I'd really like to get the collector's edition.
Incase you didn't read the article, or just overlooked it It's actually a HMV exclusive and they will ship internationally you can find shipping information here; http://hmv.com/hmvweb/navig...
*falls on knees with arms by his side and tears streaming down his face* Doshite....dooshite!?! ( why? Why!?! ) I was asking my friends who worked at Gamestop to tell me when it comes in their system not it looks like I won't be able to get that soundtrack.
That is a shame, I was also looking forward to the soundtrack. To be honest, I was hoping Angelo Badalamenti would return for this title, but that doesn't appear to be the case. I'm sure it'll turn up on torrent; just saying. :D
Yeah sadly I'll probably have to resort to that as well :/ unless someone I know gets it and sends it to me.
Suck it SCEA! I know you got us the God of War Collection, but that doesn't matter now! These guys won't even get up different colored PS3s. lol I probably wouldn't have bought it anyway :)
yeah but europe didn't get Demon Souls and GOW collection, two of the best releases in 2009! =( talk about unfair eh =(
I wonder why SCEA wont do something like this? Ive got gow3 ultimate edition on reserve and Im planning to doing the same with gt5 SCEA does weird things sometimes even SCEE does the same thing. Sony need to do as a whole should advertise the hell out of this game as a whole. Play3beyond.
so the ultimate edition is the pandora's box thing we all saw in some pictures?
com on man thats not fair and that cover looks amazing btw.
"thank you sony" PS: making allusion to when Ubi announced that the collector's edition of Splintercell would only be available to gamestop and GAME stores in the UK and the ps3 guys blamed it on MS. even thought it has nothing to do with them.
Well, this is down to Sony since they're publishing the game.
any one no what this includes ?
A soundtrack, a theme, and some sort of episodic content I believe
Well f*ck you QD. I'll just have to buy the standard edition.
Does anyone know a good, reliable site to import PS3 games from? It's a shame that a game like this probably won't find the audience it deserves in the US.
HMV will ship it to you It's £4.50 shipping fee They'll pay import vat for you using the VAT that was inclusive on the game but there's always a possibility of customs charges info here; http://hmv.com/hmvweb/navig... so, just using the shipping + game it already comes to $71 Pretty steep imo
NZ better not get a cut version from Australia... otherwise, i may as well import the collectors edition. I'm so glad Sony went region free with games.
I already planned on buying the soundtrack anyway. You can find ONE song from it online right now...which I downloaded. Absolutely gorgeous! This game is going to be incredible!
