View Full Version : Collector's Edition???!?

I've been searching for a while on several different forums, but so far all I have come up with is threads speculating on what will come with a collectors limited edition if there is one.

Does anyone have any kinda of conformation as to what there will be? (Because we all know there is going to be one. If not, then 2. A limited edition, and a legendary edition, like halo 3.) I also heard that there was a chance at a Gears 3 console. Not sure how that is going to work with the new model system that came out with Kinect.

Can anyone please help cure my wondering mind.

Thanks in advanced.

It has not been announced. Once it has, we'll surely run a news piece on it, so watch the main site (subscribe to the RSS feed for best results), or check the Gears of War 3 page from time to time for new information.

A set of COG tags would be sweet.

as it's been said, there has been nothing announced. some people say that there is an "epic edition" of gears 3 but rod just misspoke and was talking about the epic edition of bulletstorm.

Most likely Gears 3 will follow what gears 2 did. have the standard $60 game and then an $80 collectors with steel case and some bonuses.

i'm hoping though, that they do make a super edition that includes some sort of nice item like we've seen in the legendary editions of halo and other games

Probably get gold gun skins and a book as normal. Skins and info you can find online is not worth extra money imo, so I hope you get what you want.

i think there should be more then the regular gun skins and a book. i definitely think there should be cog tags. and i think it would be cool if they put in a 2nd disc that had more playable deleted scenes from gears 1 and 2. maybe a code for shadow complex and the making of gears 3 video with all voice actors in it. im sick and tired of not knowing who voices my favorite characters in my video games. that would be awesome:)

Yeah! This is what I've been waiting for. Now I wonder if I show up at a Canadian Gamestop tonight will I be able to pre-order the epic edition?

yep the limited edition is 80 USD and the epic edition is 150 USD. It hasn't been announced yet what comes with each edition but if you're a true fan then you'll preorder the Epic edition without knowing! ....im going to wait

i'm waiting, because depending on what the epic edition includes it may not be worth it. if it's another cat helmet like halo 3 then i'm not spending the extra $70.

Yeah, I already dropped money on my Epic Edition. Rod's said it is real limited, but we all know how that goes.

I bought Battlefield: Bad Company and got asked if I wanted to pre-order anything and I mentioned Gears and was shown a very thick wad of the usual code redeem flyers.

He said that you only get the beta entry code if you pre-order the collectors or Epic editions. 5 deposit which I am guessing is $10 USD...I'll whack my 5 down then cancel and order online when I get Dragon Age 2 next week. The UK usually have sick offers in supermarkets on midnight launch like Modern Warfare 2 for 28 or 2100 MS points for 2 if you bought Black Ops or Halo Reach.

Not true over here. I had just the regular edition pre-ordered when I was sent a text from GameStop about picking up my beta code. I know for the Epic Edition, you have to put down $25 to reserve it.

Traded in a few games today (And by few i mean like 5 or 6) and got $110.60 for my trades and thanks to gamestop doing their extra 50% trade bonus thingy now i only owe $40.00 for my epic edition...Sweet!! :woop:

Now available on game.co.uk :D

Noticed that you get free express delivery with it, so perhaps it's going to be something the size of the Halo Reach Legendary edition, think only stuff about that size or above gets the express for free.

I pre-ordered the EPIC Edition from GAME, I'm not running the risk of leaving it to the last minute and not getting it.

My only issue is that it will be too big for the posty to slip through the letter box. So, it's probably the midnight launch in GAME for me then, hopefully they give out codes and posters like for Gears of War 2.

EDIT: Or I could get the day off and get it off the posty. NICE !!!

Im thinking of going to the midnight launch, if they have one down here. Ive never been too one and always have wanted too go to one. Doubt Im gonna get the collectors edition tho, just standard for me I think.

Still nothing but regular edition available on amazon.com. However, there is a 20$ future credit if you buy it.

Oh man, I can't wait for it to come out....I wanted to pre-order but it was 25 bucks to pre-order it.
Maybe when I find out what's in it... i'll get it or change my pre-order to it.

Am debating waiting to see what they have in the can for the Stupidly Expensive Edition, for $150 it better be really friggin' cool! (http://www.gamestop.ca/xbox-360/gears-of-war-3-epic-edition-with-bonus/309107?loc=comingsoon_row3_col1)

Like cog tags and a REAL Cole plushy, with helmet and #83 jersey and not just an avatar prop. That would be awesome.

Drooling to pre-order...may do it and when the content is announced drop it for the regular edition if it's not worth it (DS2's plastic plasma cutter trinket comes to mind). But Epic knows what makes good filler. Can buy another game for the cost of the upgrade though...

The Epic edition costs $198 in Australia. I'm willing to lay down that much money though. So hopefully on Wednesday when I go to pre-order a copy, they have some left.
