Lionhead's official website reads:

The limited collector's edition includes: a bonus disc with a new behind-the-scenes making of video, collectible Hobbe figure, a LIVE trial card and additional in-game content

Just so that you know for the addition fiver you can get in-game content apparently.

Also, Pubgames is free from praticipating retailers witha pre-order, but the only one I know of is Gamestation who charge 10 extra for limited.

Hope that comes of use to people.

In regards to GoW 2 limited edition:

I just read
Collectible SteelBook DVD Case that we expect to be very similar from what we've seen recently from Halo 3 and Mass Effect.
"Beneath the Surface: An Inside Look at Gears of War 2," this is a 48-page hardbound art book that we expect to be similar to what was included in the first Gears of War limited edition. You'll find concept art, character profiles and a foreword by Epic's Design Director, Cliff Bleszinski.
Bonus DVD including a making-of documentary and commentary by Epic Games along with promotional videos such as the E3 2008 trailer, Rendezvous.
An exclusive gold-plated Lancer Assault Rifle for use during online play.

And in the picture on amazon there's a picture of Dom and his wife, so apparently you get a cool picture of Dom and his wife:D

lmao. YEAH, STE, get a GAME? NO WAY Very Happy. And yeah I wondered why you didnt realise that the gold gun was IN GAME too Razz. My plan is to pre order mirrors edge, saints row 2 and fable 2. Complete mirrors edge first, and then wait for a while to buy fallout 3.

Fallout 3 is actually on 28th of October, who knows why play did a date before they knew.

EDIT: 31st for europe

Edited.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed demo out now. I hope more are out soon.
For anyone interested in buying The Force Unleashed, Play.com have an official 'General Rahm Kota' Costume Unlock Code. I haven't seen any other shops having an exclusive.

I'm highly doubting the Mirror's Edge release date you know...

Places like Amazon and Wikipedia always make up their own release dates, and they say 26/9/08. To quote Mike...

Mike FUBAR wrote:Fallout 3 is actually on 28th of October, who knows why play did a date before they knew.

Funnily enough, Play is also down for the 26th. When it hits the 26th they'll make a new date.

If you think about it, this was only announced at E3 and there's NO media about it in terms of screens and stuff. GAME and the Playstation mag just say "November 2008" and that should be more likely, because I doubt they would move the date forward, since when has that happened? It's very unlikely. I also expect a demo from EA at some point because this is a really new concept, you'd think they'd want people to try it out before buying?

I'm really not sure...
Opinions?

EDIT: After checking, Amazon have taken Mirror's Edge down and Wiki have replaced 26th September for 11th November.

Im not entirely sure what you mean about the only place media coverage was given to it was E3. But, I have seen some screenshots and a video to the game, the only thing is I think this was on the news section on my xbox. You know, where you can buffer videos and then watch them or whatever. But id imagine that if it was on the news section on the xbox 360, you could get the same video on the net somewhere?
As for the release date, It wouldnt surprise me if it got put back some more, but i hope not, because that just pisses me off Very Happy.

There are only 2 or 3 videos on the internet and screenshots are from those videos. There's some other random shots of concept on IGN. But that's all. I didn't say E3 had been the only media converage anyway. >.< I just said that there was next to nothing on the game in general.

Anyway, from what I gather there is no confirmed release date. I think the 29th date is made up.

Well there's been no confirmed release date yet, but as soon as one's set, i'll edit the post. It definitely shouldn't be '09.

EDIT: definitely shouldn't? don't tell me if that doesn't make sense. Interesting couple of words stuck together.

Ok well put it this way, I really want Mirror's Edge to come out ASAP. Im sick of games being delayed all the time.

Anyway, Fable 2, I have just read on Wikipedia and some other website that there will be online AND offline co-op modes. Which is absolutly brilliant news. The online co-op will mean that 2 people can play the entire game through together and you can allow anyone to jump into your game at any time. There will also be a "safety" feature, which can be turned on, so that any changes your mate makes in your world will not be permenant (when it is on of course). I read that you something purple orbs will be dotted around the world and you can go to those to invite your friend and join them and stuff. Check it out for yourselves, just google "Fable 2 online coop". Or go on Fable 2's page on wikipedia.

Oh, Nah I didn't watch that stuff. But I heard different things from different people about Fable. Some said online coop was available, others said it wasn't. But at least we know now.

actually, i could kill everyone in your village while you've gone to eat something and then i'll go questing and you'll find your village bathed with blood when we come back. All because you have to be player 1.
