Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition Confirmed October 15, 2010

Retailers like GameStop and Amazon have started listing a Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition on their websites, and have included with those listings a complete specifications as to all the goodies that are coming for the edition, along with a picture of what the CE is going to look like.

A bit of disclosure here, EA had been teasing doing a Collector’s Edition for Dead Space 2 since they announced the game and had been taking a list of possible goodies to include from the Dead Space community through different means like Facebook.  This is why you’ll notice in my “What Makes for a Good Collector’s Edition” video I call out the developers of Dead Space 2 directly because I remembered that promotion.  Most of what the developers were getting for ideas in goodies were actually pretty terrible, ranging in mostly fluff pieces with no substance.  I think if I remember correctly a pretty highly desired item was a scale replica of The Marker from Dead Space.  Sure it would’ve looked pretty, but honestly it only serves a purpose as a paperweight.  Fortunatly that’s not what’s coming with this edition.

The real goodie included in the CE will be a replica Plasma Cutter with functioning LED lights.  There will also be a soundtrack CD included (with a “Scoring of Dead Space” featurette, no idea how they’re doing that), a DLC code for a special suit and matching weapon, and a special lithograph.

The Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition will retail for $79.99 US and will release for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on January 25th, 2011.  Also remember that all PS3 versions of Dead Space 2 will include an HD version of Dead Space Extraction for the Playstation Move.

On November 30th, Bungie will be releasing their first map pack for Halo Reach, and unfortunatly even though it is coming so soon after the release of the game and has been previously seen in some pre-release videos, it will not be free.

Three maps are planned for release on November 30th, 2010.  The price will be 800ms points, and they will require Halo Reach to play.  250 points worth of new achievements will also be coming along with the map pack.
