According to a (since removed) image found on Amazon
and now posted on Examiner
, the collector's edition of Dead Space 2
will include a life-size toy Plasma Cutter, in addition to a soundtrack CD, a DLC voucher, and a piece of artwork. EA announced its intention to produce a collector's edition for the sequel way back in January
, when it sought ideas for pack-in items from fans. The plasma cutter happened to be on the list even then -- and we called it "outrageous."
Being a sort-of leaked item, EA hasn't officially announced its existence, and thus no information about its price is known.
EA has announced
the Collector's Edition -- for the UK, at least. The plasma cutter is only packed with the Xbox 360 and PC versions, while the PS3 version includes Dead Space Extraction
it for North America as well -- with no mention of platform exclusivity for the plasma cutter.
