When I was a kid I had this awesome plastic machine gun that made popping sounds when I pulled the trigger. As a cultured adult, my toy tastes have become much more refined. Now, I'd rather own silent replicas of space miner paraphernalia, particularly high-energy mineral cutters and space shovels. I don't have either yet, but it looks like I'll be able to get my hands on the former, which is properly called the Plasma Cutter by Dead Space fans, soon enough. A replica of the gun will likely be included in Dead Space 2's collector's edition, though EA has yet to officially unveil the bundle.


 
According to this Examiner report (via Joystiq), a picture of Dead Space 2's special edition appeared on Amazon briefly before being taken down by the wizards who put it up before EA announced it. From the looks of the picture, the edition will include a free bit of DLC, some sort of art card thing, a soundtrack, a copy of the game, and the aforementioned replica Plasma Cutter. 

As Joystiq notes, publisher EA said it would put out a collector's edition for the game earlier this year and left it up to fans to decide what will be in it. Not surprisingly, a life-size Plasma Cutter was included in that list.

#6 Posted by RE_Player1 (7551 posts) -

Wait it's only a replica? I want a real gun or no deal. 

#7 Posted by BeachThunder (11713 posts) -

Oh shi- now I think I want one too...

#8 Posted by FuzzYLemoN (1600 posts) -

If it tilts from vertical to horizontal and has the blue laser sights, we may have a winner here.

#9 Posted by Jeffk38uk (715 posts) -

I bet you all Europe will get is a cloth of the jupiter station and a A4 poster or wherever DS2 is set in.

#10 Posted by Galiant (2181 posts) -
@FuzzYLemoN: Probably not. That'd be too good to be true.
#11 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

If I can't cut fools with it then no deal.

#16 Posted by Peacemaker (1101 posts) -

That is awesome.  It would be badass if there was a button to flip the front between horizontal and vertical.

#17 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

Dead Space 3 collectors edition will contain a make-your-own necromorph kit.

That's right. You Europeans banned guns so EA couldn't sell it in Europe even if they wanted to. ;-P lol

I'm sure someone will mod one to do that and it will make for a fine Kotaku story, but pack-in things like this tend to be made as cheaply as possible and do nothing but look good.  At the very most it will make sounds.
 
EDIT: Now that I've seen a closer image of it, there appear to be LEDs on it, and there is a clear space in the middle of it where it could be made to rotate the front half.  It does remind me of a Nerf gun mod though.

We banned FUNCTIONAL guns, because we value safety to some extent. 
I highly doubt this is going to be a fully functional plasma cutter :P

Dumb, after getting burned on the GOW III collection got no interest in ever buying one again.

#31 Posted by OneAndOnlyBigE (438 posts) -

A real one would be more better

#34 Posted by Mowgers (378 posts) -

Well I'm sold. Wanna sell me a collectors edition? SPACE POWERTOOL IN THE BOX.

#35 Edited by EgoCheck616 (782 posts) -

 Are PS3 fans not going to be getting Extraction if they purchase Dead Space 2 Collector's? 
 If they are, then I'll gladly put the money down on the collector's edition. 
 
If not... I'll have to go limited. 

#36 Posted by DonutFever (3550 posts) -

I'll shoot this while wearing the MW2 Night Vision goggles.

#37 Posted by Mystyr_E (1189 posts) -

For those wondering what comes with what:
  *Exclusive bonus content on Xbox 360 and PC only:
• Replica of Isaac’s trusty Plasma Cutter, modeled from the new design from Dead Space 2.

*Exclusive to the PlayStation 3 pack only:
... • The critically acclaimed Dead Space Extraction. See how it all began in the PlayStation® Move supported prequel to Dead Space, available for the first time in HD.
• Downloadable Rivet Gun for use in-game.
 
no gun for PS3 but contains Extraction

#38 Posted by skrutop (3615 posts) -

That is the only weapon you ever need.

#39 Posted by LiquidSwords (2738 posts) -

Never bother with special editions, but this I must get!!

#40 Posted by Gill (134 posts) -

I'm not generally one for getting collector's additions, but I somehow decided a while ago that I would get it for Dead Space 2. Since then they have not stopped backing up my decision.

#41 Posted by EgoCheck616 (782 posts) -
@Mystyr_E: Thanks for clearing that up. 
To be honest I would rather have Extraction anyways.  
 
Do you know where my CoD:MW2 nightvision goggles are? 
Neither do I.
#42 Posted by Malphye (413 posts) -

I can see myself buying one and storing it inside the reach legendary edition box. Oh yes.

#43 Edited by Jayross (2365 posts) -

I can confirm that such a gun does exist. I held it at New York Comic Con 2010 at the Dead Space 2 booth! 
 
Pulling the trigger causes some white LED lights at the top to blink, it seems pretty cool.

#44 Posted by sixghost (1679 posts) -

I really hope it's not more than $70, but I know it will be $80+

#45 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

if only it really worked.  the plasma cutter is one of the cooler and more satisfying space weapons out there.

#46 Posted by tourgen (4427 posts) -

well I hope the game is good..
 
this does seem like the best special edition I've ever seen even though I'm not really interested in any of it

#47 Posted by Frypot (21 posts) -

Fuck yea.... shame it'll cost around £130 probably

#48 Posted by Sharpshooter (883 posts) -

That would be worth getting my hands on.

I don't think this qualifies as a gun.
Plus you have to remember we got the replica of Bayonetta's gun.  For free  ;)

THATS SO COOL! I may need to get that version now.
