    Default Dead Space: Ultra Limited Edition (Only 1,000 Made!)

    http://eastore.ea.com/DRHM/servlet/C...ctID=106790800

    The Dead Space Ultra Limited Edition comes with:

    * 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

    It costs $150 and only 1,000 are being made. How expensive do you suppose this will be in the future? How many sealed copies will there be, if any? Discuss.

    Meh.... comes with a few cool items i guess but it just doesnt have the branding behind it to really sell. I'm guessing the price on this will tank well under the retail $150 for awhile before eventually becoming collectible. I wouldn't buy this looking for a good return unless i was willing to sit on it for at least a decade probably more like 2.

    Default hmmm...

    The included movie seems to be getting decent reviews, but I think it is also coming out on Blu-Ray which is a deal killer for this set, since it seems to pack a standard DVD.

    Also I want the PC version which seems to be coming out a week or two later...

    I just hate that wording "Ultra Limited Edition"....*shivers*. It doesn't instill much confidence, as it has to be "ultra" and "limited"
    at the same time.

    They just as easily could have called it "Definitive", though I don't think they have much confidence that it is.

    I agree with the DVD pack-in, i'll get the Blu-Ray "if any" myself. Not sure I even want this game yet, though it does look decent and funky/spooky from the vids.

    They are touting "limited ammo" as the games tactic to keep the frights up, but Bioshock did that as well and there was tons of ammo in it and so far i've seen the guy blasting the hell outta everything with tons of guns.

    You should probably check out the discussion over the last two weeks at Cheapassgamer.com. Several people pre-ordered and then cancelled when the lame packaging was revealed. Almost everything in the set is available separately at retail so unless you collect lithographs or generic looking boxes, you probably should save your money, limited or not.

    I'd pick this up for PS3 if:

    a) It was available on PS3
    b) The included movie was on BluRay

    There is nothing in the extra content that screams 100 bucks actually 160.44 for me at checkout. Don't they know that this is a recession. Maybe 250 print run but 1000 and the fact that you can still preorder speaks volumes. Turd alert.

    The way I see it is that it doesn't have the brand recognition to comand $150. Although it does have a lot of extras--NO game is ever worth $150 upon initial release, atleast not until 2012 when it becomes the norm due to inflation. My advice would be to wait on this to drop in price just like every single other limited edition drops in price. Next year you'll be able to pick this up for $50-70 still sealed.

    Again...

    A TRULY limited edition like this of a meager 1000 copies ISN'T going to drop in price. There will be 1000 people who buy it, and they won't give it up, and then 1000 more people will want it and will pay more for it later. Eventually, a mere 10,000 people will want it. Please trust me on this. I don't care if you buy it or not, but the history of economics of truly limited editions simply proves this is "worth it".

    I gotta agree with DP here. When these are gone they're gonna be difficult to track down.

    Provided it's in some kind of limited edition packaging that makes it clear that it's not just a bunch of parts being sold as a bundle, and if there are truly only 1000 of these packages made... these things ALWAYS appreciate in value, despite what anyone else in this thread thinks.

    Now if it's one of those Disgaea 3 deals where all you're getting are a bunch of parts compiled into one shipment as opposed to a single limited edition package... well then it's only worth the sum of it's parts.

    Don't compare the HALO 3 helmet edition to something that's only had 1000 made. I saw 1000 HALO 3 helmet editions in a single store, I think

    Ok, but if you spend some time on the page and look at the box, it couldn't be more generic. It literally doesn't even have the name of the game or the console it's for on the box, just a generic version of the cover art. In my opinion, it's just like those Rosenqueen bundles which are also usually limited to a thousand or maybe 2,500 in some cases. It's just a bundle of junk packed in a generic box. Just because something is limited doesn't mean it will become more valuable or in demand, especially when it's already $170 with shipping and tax here in California.

    I think its a bunch of parts compiled into one shipment. Take a look at the other pic and you see that the game comes in the standard packaging.

    Also, I've seen the art book at several Gamestops already with a sticker on it marked for display only.

    Under features they list

    "Special Ultra Limited Edition packaging"

    I don't think this is just gonna be a box full of items. And yes, just about everything but the lithograph will be available elsewhere. So what? It's an official release of a game that may really take off, limited to 1000 pieces, and comes in a special box. And it's Survival Horror no less!

    I don't see how the ultra limited edition is worth $150.



    The collection above tells me it is worth less than $100.

    It's the Ultra-Limited-Oh-My-God-This-Game-Went-Sooooo-Far-Over-Budget Edition.

    Specially priced to get an extra $150,000 from your fans. Not to mention, a quick way to get a thousand extra names and addresses to sell to direct marketers under the "Ultra loyal with disposable income" flag. I'd read EA's privacy policy closely before ordering.

    Sure it is. Look at the picture. It's the regular retail version of the game with a second box containing a DVD you can buy on Amazon, an art book you can get for free elsewhere with a preorder or $5 at Best Buy if you prefer, a patch valued at maybe 50 cents, a graphic novel which will be available at comic stores and a lithograph, the quality of which and potential availability outside of the set is unknown. This thing has been on sale for a week and a half now and hasn't sold out, despite being front page news on all the major video game sites. I predict it won't maintain its value because frankly, most of us who buy limited editions don't consider this to be one and I guarantee each of the component parts will be sold much cheaper once this game has been out for a few months. It's just a box of crap that comes with the game that they are bundling together for too much money. It's not individually numbered and there's just nothing exclusive enough about it to drive sales. If there were an action figure or a different version of the 360 cover art that really was exclusive to this edition, it might be a different story. As it stands now, there is not.

    As I said earlier, Rosenqueen does this all the time. Putting a bunch of stuff in a box does not a limited edition make.

    All that was missing from making that sentence more true was: "regardless of how many there are, even 1000".
