Dead Space
EA Offers Dead Space: Ultra Limited Edition
Written By
EA's Online Store has offered us a chance to own a Ultra Limited Edition of Dead Space.  Why is it so "ultra"?  Maybe for the simple fact EA has only a 1,000 copies up for pre-order at a whopping $149.95.
The Ultra Limited Edition includes the following:
  • The Dead Space game
  • Special Ultra Limited Edition packaging
  • Dead Space Downfall Animated Movie (DVD)
  • Bonus content DVD
  • Exclusive custom lithograph art illustrated and signed by Ben Templesmith
  • 97-pg Dead Space art book written and illustrated by the development team
  • 160-pg Graphic novel
  • Ishimura crew patch
If you're a fan of Dead Space or just love collecting Limited Editions, then this is for you.  Hurry, as there is only 1,000 to go around.

... Am I allowed yet to walk up to an EA rep and kick them in the 'nads? I mean... one, you screw up the achievement community by discontinuing events required for them, and now you jump on the "Limited Edition: Reserve Only" bandwagon, in an attempt to show off.

At this point, I'd just like to tell them to "Go fuck themselves"...

When will Collector's Edition be more than a tin box, an art book, and a making-of dvd?

Why don't developers/publishers know that IN-GAME CONTENT would sell more limited editions?

I would probably spend an extra $10 if I get some extra maps, a longer story, and/or special weapons.

Well those gamerscore whores know just by the list alone this is gonna be a easy 1000, i mean they might take a little longer then your average "easy 1000" but the achievements are still easy.

@10: Just to verify; the 1,000 we're speaking of is the limited count of "Super Ultra Megapack" Limited Editions available. >>;;

Not sure if you knew that. ._.;

Also, I just noticed Jdm that this edition only seems available to United States and Canadian residents. Perhaps I'm wrong but the shipping only shows it can be sent to places within the U.S. and Canada.

You're right. I clicked on the Country tab and it only allows me to choose either the U.S. or Canada. Well that sucks.

@13 "lulz" at you ... Rock Band special edition is $169.99 and not $149.99

I will rent this, but even $60 is too much for this for me, especially since I do not like EA!

@#10 - Bet you $20 that all the achievements are glitched. Making it an easy 1000 if they actually work. I mean we are taking about EA here.

Yeah.... the fact that the limited edition will actually be LIMITED is cool but wtf is with 149.95?? I would pay MAYBE 79.99 if I really wanted it but to hell with that price. I barely talked myself into buying the Gears of War 2 Lancer for that price... and I'm still debating on whether or not to cancel it. At least its "worth" the price.

$150 for that? yeah, #21, these will be ebay bound for sure.

is this something new or does EA just suck at CE and/or game bonuses?

This deserves maybe to be 70 or 80. Tops they could put it for 90. 150 nobody is going to buy except for like a couple hundred people that are familar with the work.

What are the odds that the 160 page graphic novel is just volumes 1-5 of the comic, just to catch people up with the story? I mean, the game does start where the "novel" ends.

This is absolutely nuts. Ok, I see $80 or $90 but wtf?! Blatent attempt to increase revenue. Though, it might look good in my shortly to come eBay store...hmmm...

Still can't wait for this game. I swore off buying new ones for now since I have too many new ones started (RB2, Tales Of Vesperia, Infinite Undiscovery, Duke Nukem, MM9 soon...orgasm...) and too many unfinished in the first place. This one, however, I'm breaking my promise for.

...and maybe Golden Axe: Beast Rider...
...and Spider-Man.

@ 29: Golden Axe...Spider-man?! # 30, thank you for providing a little insight to # 29..I mean come on dude..Fable 2 and Fallout 3 alone will take a nice amount of time as it is.

And I guess the 150$ price tag is trying to make up some money since EA couldn't bully Take 2 into selling out..

This game will be crap, just like anything else EA touches:

Full of glitches/bugs, messy game play, "You get the idea."

Charging $150 for a new, untested IP...I think NOT! They are just betting there are at least 1,000 suckers out there with too much money.

Save your money and pre-order Fallout 3 from Amazon. Its almost the same price, but you get a PIP-boy replica alarm clock. If you don't like that the pre-order GOW 2. It's more money but you are really pre-ordering the Lancer and they just give you the game for free.

Does EA have a monopoly on all 360 games now? Shit guys all i See are games with EA branded on there asses - what gives? I remember playing a game on the commodore 64 - some flight simulator - back in the 80s, now they are some super company that controls when games are pushed... acting like sony with blu-ray nuts up on this - As far as this post goes, I would totally pay 10 bucks more liek an earlier post said for more maps, amazing new weapon. Bad Company had those cool new weapons only the pre-orders could get there hands on - and im gonna be jealous of those fable 2 homos that played hours of stupid pub games to get the cool new only pubic-game weapons.

This is one game that I will always regret not getting the Special Edition of. I mean, I didn't even have an xbox at the time of release, so I couldn't have done.

But I love Special Editions, and I also frikken love Dead Space. *sigh*

I love looking back at these news stories and reading the comments. My stance at the time, and now, is that they only were making 1000, and there are at least 1000 people willing to spend that much. Not normal everyday people, but they really only need a niche group of people. Also, to the people who said this game would suck, there is a reason EA broke its M rated cherry over this game. Even big business knows gems when they see them. Both Dead Space 1 & 2 have been some of the best horror games ever, and I hope they continue with the excellant work with the series.
