  1. Still loving the look of the game cover, and the special-est edition has a nice selection of nicknacks. Most likely just the steelbook for me though…

  2. That special edition will be mine!!!!!!!!!!!

    They should have had that red colours on the normal box art too.Looks much better with that!!!

  3. That is just amazing. I love steelbook cases, but everything from the unlockables, the extra stuff and the vinyl like Blu-Ray disc is going to look amazing.

    • I don’t like steelbooks. They stand out too much from the rest of my collection and are too thick for my liking (and shelf!). I always end up throwing them away.

      I’ll be going for the normal special edition probs :)

      • The Special Edition also has steelbook case.

      • I’m with Pesico, steelbooks are awesome. All PS3 games should have to have a special edition that comes in one.

        Definitely the steelbook edition for me.

  4. Multiplayer booster? urgh

    • Level 5? It might help unexperienced players a little and quite frankly, the average FPS gamer will probably reach level 5 within the first few hours, so no big deal. It’s not like some racing game where you could buy an unlock code and race with the fastest cars against other people from day one. ;)

  5. Meh. Can’t get interested in this. Loved the first, hated the second. Neither the (supposedly) amazing cover art not the various editions have done anything to increase my enthusiasm.

  6. Think all three look great, but price will be a huge factor in weather I get any of them. Also glad to see something useable in a special edition, instead of a weird helghan head or ‘boobie mousemat’ which was just plain scary..

  7. wow great package but i bet that wont come at a reasonable price :P i think it will just be the game for me…if that :P

  8. Special edition it is then.

  9. Come on Resistance.

  10. I’ll just buy the normal game, thanks. Special editions are pretty much cheap tat anyway.
