Alan Wake Limited Edition was posted some time ago and I thought I would make a post about it here for everyone who doesn't know!

http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/4-/13647042/Alan-Wake-Limited-Collector-Edition/Product.html

I love the fact that the box looks like a book.

From another site;

• Game Disc in box with unique Art
• Exclusive In-Game Audio Commentary and Hints by Remedy
• “The Alan Wake Files” – a 144pg book that includes a short story written by Alan Wake and compiles the FBI dossiers investigating the events in Bright Falls, WA
• Exclusive Xbox disc with special content:
1. Exclusive Xbox Theme & Avatar
2. Behind-The-Scenes Footage
3. Behind the scenes material/documentaries:
- The Theme of Alan Wake
- The World of Bright Falls
- The People of Bright Falls
- Alan's Missions
• Exclusive Audio Disc with Soundtrack and Score

Please don't tell me this is another PAL exclusive. I've already missed out on Dante's Inferno Death Edition and BioShock 2 Rapture Edition. This one looks good as well, so I hope we get the chance at it too.

I always thought it was us Brits who missed out on everything.

If I have the money at the time I'll definately be getting the Limited Edition.

Does it come with an Alan Wake T-shirt for the avatar? I read a while back that was a possibility.

I really hope this isnt one of those LONG projects, thats promising tons but delivers a rushed game (Alone in the Dark). I hope it plays like Silent Hill 2, its about time someone made a really cerebral horror game and not just making shit jump out at you every five minutes.

they should also have a 4 Year long Documentary as to WHY this game was delayed from the Launch Date of Xbox 360 to May 18th, 2010. That ridiculous! haha. :p Im just joking though, Ive been excited for this game for 4 years now, and im ready to play this game!

I think the CE is the same in all regions, not region specific editions. Of course this could change as Developers always reserve the right to change them. The reason why that NA doesn't get the superior CE's anymore is because we're not the biggest gaming market anymore. As far as the Rapture Edition of Bioshock 2 is concerned I'm not sure why NA didn't get it, but the reason why we didn't get either the Divine or Death Editions is because EA and Visceral was trying to take wind out of GoW III's sail's and boost the sales of Dante's Inferno. I'm at the point now that I'm used to getting screwed over by both European and North American Publishing and Development houses. :drunk

I don't know why you're complaining about not gettin the rapture edition of BS since we got the superior Special Edition.

Also we did get the Divine Edition of Dante's Inferno but it was PS3 exclusive:

TBH I really think the price is ok. I mean look at Dante's Inferno, Death ed. WAY to expensive, and all you got was a very very nice box tho and an extra disc with.. crap on it.

i had the LE pre-ordered, but switched to the regular edition recently.

when i orginally pre-ordered, i was under the impression the DLC token was exclusive to the LE, which, for me, justified paying the extra $20, figuring about $10 of that was for the DLC. but then they announced the DLC token would be included in ALL copies of Alan Wake, LE and regular. between that and the fact that the pre-order comes with a free (very cool looking) theme and avatar item, everything else didn't seem to be worth the extra $20. so, i canned it.

i honestly don't figure i'll keep this game long anyway before i trade it off. so, it's the regular edition for me.

Usually online places stop preorders on LEs/CEs when their stock is all allocated, or simply when it gets close to the release date.
Mine should be shipped tomorrow :)

I've heard it takes awfully long time to get you're stuff from Zavvi

Yeah, they used to be decent, but the past few times I've ordered from them, it's taken ages to get my stuff.
Now I'll only buy from them if I have to, (ie really good deal only there or if Zavvi exclusive).

I was reading an interview with one of the devs, and he mentioned the limited edition and the novel it includes. He said it runs parallel with the events of the game, and gives another perspective.

What I'm wondering is, should I read it before I play the game or not? It sounds like it might have spoilers... Can anyone enlighten me?

No. Ive been tralling the Alan Wake forums for a few weeks, and basically the Mods/staff at Remedy recommned you read that afterwards. It contains a lot of things that you'll probably enjoy finding out about while you're playing the the game, rather than having knowledge of them from the book etc.

One problem though, (aside from the soundtrack actually feeling like it's glued into place the first time you take it out), is that there's no info for the soundtrack.

Anyone happen to run into a soundtrack listing?
Like composer and track names?
Haha, I'm a bit OCD about stuff like that in my library. :p:biglaugh

Hey Vlad, were you able to get the CE in your Region without having to import it from the States? Because I know that you usually have to import to get the CE's that you want. Five more days until I get my copy of the AW CE, if only GameStop would break the street date! :D

Yeah they are. I was pissed when I ordered the Fable 2 special edition cause you got a Hobb figure, but for some reason it got pulled, yet other countries got the fucking thing!!! PLAY forgot to mention this at the time of preorder and sent an email AFTER I recieved the game saying the Hobb figure had been pulled from UK release!!! Cheers you pricks!

Anyhoo ...

I was luck cause the GAME I preorderd at stopped taking limited editions preorders the afternoon I preordered! I just made it! The store only got 10 and the manager didnt believe me when I told him 1 of them was mine. Thank God I kept the confirmation text GAME sent and my preorder reciept! Cost me £16 with the walkthrough as I traded some stuff in for it. Im mega happy with it, BEST SPECIAL EDITION EVER!!!

I'm guessing the bonus disc stuff is usable in other consoles?

I.e. the themes etc. Can't see how it'd be locked to a particular profile or console.

Anyone else having trouble with the Bonus Disc from the CE? I try to run it, it just goes to an 'XBOX LIVE' screen, and nothing else happens. It kinda' acts like it's a movie-DVD, though - if I hit any of the buttons, I get the movie-panel at the bottom, like play/rewind/whatever? 'course, if I try to USE any of them, it just says 'This function is not available on the disc' - 'cept for Play, which just does nothing.

Annoying. :mad:

No, I didn't have any issues with it :( I've watched the whole thing too.

Maybe go into the store you got it from and ask for an exchange?

Unfortunately, I bought it online... >_>;

EDIT: Well, I managed to get it working. Frankly, I suspect it was the box's fault. The reader seems to be on its last legs... and this is the SECOND X360 I've owned. Damned Microsoft 'quality'. >_<

I usually press :xbut: to eject and close the tray again and it loads normally then.

Nope, I'm certain the Hobbe figure got pulled all over the world.
Only certain folk managed to get the figure and cards, but you can still get it from eBay.com sometimes.

Does seem there were a handful of songs that didn't make the cut, I was expecting the soundtrack to be bigger than what it is.

It's even missing "Old Gods of Asgard - Children of the Elder God" (epic moment in the game) & "Poets of the Fall - War" D:

Nice soundtrack for what it is though.

Yarp, same here, when it mentioned OST I thought it would be the soundtrack of songs, not instrumental pieces. But then again, wouldnt they need special permission to put the artists music on CD?

Anyone who pre-ordered from GameStop, how did you get your code for the "I am Awake" t-shirt? I was told that it was bundled inside my CE, but it's not.

Poets of the fall have a song in this? Thats awesome, I remember listening to the one they did for Max Payne 2 (Late Goodbye) and it was awesome.

I got mine on a card. My CSRs didn't know about it either. I asked him about it and they actually had to find it. So you may want to return to your EBG.

This is has got to be my favorite LE. It looks brilliant. I was stunned when I opened it.

Should I read the book before diving into the game?

This is the best CE I have ever picked up. It is truly masterpiece. Even the LE guide package was cool with the Alan Wake Illuminated Book. It looks just like his book in the game with the white cover. I have 2 extra Gamestop cards , I was gonna put them on Ebay here in a day or two so if anyone is interested then let me know.

Actually it is better to read "Alan Wake Files" after you finish the game, because it have spoilers and it will help you to understand story and the ending of the game.

Its suppose to be a card that has the code, the store is suppose to give it to you its not packaged in.

Anyway like said before BEST LE EVER!!!

Yes the LE included book is indeed better to read after the game is completed..
