Gamertag Radio has the goods
on a special edition of Command & Conquer 3
that's coming to PC. Entitled Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars: Kane Edition
, the game will include "an enormous amount of exclusive content." At first, we wondered why EA would exclude the 360 from its special edition love fest. Then we looked at the list of included content. Let's see: strategy videos, 5 multiplayer maps, different skins for your units, exclusive wallpapers, and behind the scenes videos. Sound familiar? Our best guess would be that EA plans to make these items available through Xbox Live Marketplace. Granted, it's just speculation for now, but it seems highly plausible, especially given EA's love affair with microtransactions. Potentially, it could actually be cheaper than picking up a special edition. Pay for the stuff you want (maps) and leave the rest alone (videos, themes, etc.). (Did we just mention EA and microtransactions in a positive light? Whaa?)
Do you like the idea of buying this content one piece at a time, or would you prefer to buy it all in a spiffy special edition?
