Man I am kinda even more bummed that is looks so crappy. I would not have minded if it was just small and looked awesome. I am not going to display it, oh well in a few days I will have my game and be happy.

Dude, that really does suck! It's sad that you had to spend your money on this, but at least you were kind enough to let us know... I sure won't be buying the Collector's Edition now!

#53 Posted by Duke_Lion (221 posts) -

Yeah man, I straight up laughed my ass off when I saw the guys at gamestop bust those CE outs.  And as soon as my buddy opened it to check out the cutter I laughed even harder.  The postcard lithograph is also classic.
 
At least the game is straight up quality.

Holy shit that plasma cutter LOL. That's just hopeless.

Balls. I pre-ordered the collectors edition for PS3 for $120 a few months back, shame it turned out the extras were turd. It's not released until Thursday in Australia so I just have tomorrow and waiting to get out of work Thursday before I can start playing it. No matter because if it is half as awesome as 1 I'll get all my moneys worth out of the campaign alone. And tomorrow being Australia Day there is going to be plenty on to do without worrying about playing video games.

Voted for understatement of the year. That's just really disappointing. 
 
@jakob187: I truly empathize with you on the bum deal and plasma pecker. Just seeing you hold that thing makes me get a little mad and a lot sad.  
 
Oh, and as an aside, I am pretty sure Necromorphs make liberal use of all the flesh they can get their claws on, so it might not be where it's supposed to be, but I am sure it's in there...somewhere. Even so, I doubt it could be shot off with that.
 
 Did I think about that too much? I am pretty sure I did. *shudder*

I'm actually pretty happy with the collectors edition but then again it was only $75 and then I saved an extra %10 so....yeah....

Kinda glad I missed the chance to pre-order it.

#59 Posted by VWGTI (1919 posts) -

This is as bad as the Batarang that was attached to the stand. Shame on you, publishers...

colectors editions are a waste of money in my book anyway lol

#61 Edited by NTM (7479 posts) -

Oh damn... that's sucks. I think you saved me money.
#62 Posted by Tordah (2480 posts) -

Haha, I think they confused "badass" with "cute" when they made that tiny plasma cutter.

#63 Posted by Bucketdeth (8024 posts) -

Yeah that looks fucking shitty man, the only collectors edition I'm really looking forward to is for Killzone 3 which costs an arm and a leg.

@jakob187: You got the code when you preorderd.  
 
Dont you work at gamestop?
#65 Posted by OneAndOnlyBigE (439 posts) -

I don't really understand why people buy Collector's Editions anyway.  Are you really going to display a Plasma Cutter in your house somewhere anyway?

 Stop shouting.  I like games too.  That doesn't mean that I hang tacky posters and plastic figurines of them in my home.
#72 Posted by fwylo (3556 posts) -

Thats a shame, it actually looked really promising before.

#73 Posted by MikkaQ (10317 posts) -

That looks pretty sad. 

#74 Posted by Krakn3Dfx (2498 posts) -

It's not the size of the plasma cutter, it's how you use it.
 
At least that's what the ladies tell me.

We'll all be sure not to like games any more than you.
#76 Posted by WEGGLES (739 posts) -

I lucked out, as the first time I heard about the LCE was when people were speculating it might be tiny. 
 
Shame for anyone expecting a full sized gun.

T_T  Burn in Hell, you miserable winch!!! 
 
@Abyssfull: The Halo: Reach Limited Edition was goddamn great.  Everything included in it was something to do with the history of Reach, and the diary was a great read.  New Vegas had a great graphic novel with it.  Hell, Fallout 3 had a fucking lunchbox!  Hell, even the Dante's Inferno promo action figure for pre-orders was better...AND THAT'S A GAME MADE BY THE SAME COMPANY! 
 

 Here.  Hopefully, the lulz you can provide will be a redeeming factor.
 

ALSO...NO CODE FOR DEAD SPACE IGNITION THAT I'VE FOUND YET!!!

Sorry for those following my blog.  =  /   "
The Ignition code should have been on your receipt when you pre-ordered.  If you're talking about Extraction, it was a PS3 exclusive.

Is that what it is? So you like games more than me because you have more plastic figurines than I do?
#79 Edited by DukeTogo (1504 posts) -

At least the soundtrack is on a CD, my AC: Brotherhood soundtrack is on some bullshit Bluray bonus disc that is only playable on the PS3, making the idea of listening to it elsewhere impossible without serious hacking or ghetto recording.
 
I got he CE and was disappointed that the cutter wasn't 1:1.  They should have stated that it was 1:2 scale or just made a deal with Nerf to make it (they have a deal with Nerf too btw).  It's not a deal breaker since the CD and all the crap the PS3 version gets (along with my retailer exclusive) makes the extra $20 worth it.
 
Besides, it gives me a reason to build my own.

#80 Edited by benjaebe (2783 posts) -

There have been many, many worse collector's editions that cost much, much more than Dead Space 2. For fans of the series and collectors this isn't a bad deal. If you were actually expecting a full-size replica then you should probably reevaluate your grip on reality.
 
Slightly disappointed, but my little brother will think I'm the bomb when I let him play with it.

#81 Posted by Edwardryu (437 posts) -

I guess that Vesceral games changed their mind before shipping. it was originally 1:1 size as far as I know. well, what can we do? nothing. just get over it. I don't mind because it is not like you bring the gun, playing around just like teenagers? 

#82 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

Pathetic

#83 Posted by S0ndor (2716 posts) -

Wow, your tiny plasma cutter is small indeed

#84 Posted by Wuddel (2098 posts) -

Thanks for the heads up, saved me a lot of money.

" @jakob187:  Dont you work at gamestop? "

Hell no.  I work at a LAN center.  I called Gamestop today, and they said that there was nothing they could do about it.  Of course.  It's Gamestop.  Why would I have expected anything less from them?  I mean, I already own the game anyways, but still... 
 
Also, to everybody:  I realize that it wasn't going to be a 1:1 scale model or anything.  At the same time, I would've easily paid another $20 or so if they DID make a 1:1 scale version that was detailed.  Hell, if they had at least made the alt-fire portion TURN SIDEWAYS LIKE THE PLASMA CUTTER DOES, I'd be satisfied even more.

Hey guys, it's a flash light! Flip it over, open the battery compartment, put in the battery, and pull trigger...

#87 Posted by fox01313 (5080 posts) -

Thx for putting this up, think that instead I'll just get the regular game & hunt down the soundtrack (if I recall I got the soundtrack for the first one through amazon so will check there for #2).

#88 Posted by JeanLuc (3590 posts) -

oh wow thats the worst. I'm so glad I stuck with the regular edition.

It actually is 1:1 scale.  It just so happens that every character in the Dead Space series are little people.  For real.

I think the Batman:AA CE was supposed to be much, much worse. But, duders, that plasma cutter is depressing.

#92 Posted by Equal_Opportunity_Destroyer497 (560 posts) -

Let's face it: those who bought the collector's edition should have seen this coming, myself included. I swore off collector's editions a while ago, and being fooled into thinking that this one could actually be cool reminds me why I did.  All of the crap bundled into these collector's editions always seems cool but never is. 

#93 Edited by KamikazeCaterpillar (1179 posts) -

I cannot even begin to explain my disappointment in this collector's edition. EA and Visceral really dropped the ball on this one. I was so excited about the plasma cutter replica that I went out and pre-ordered the collector's edition the day it was announced and now I am seriously regretting that extra $20. They couldn't even bother to give you two AAA for the damn gun! 
edit: I am surprised at the lack of Plasma CUTEr comments. Please don't hit me.

#94 Posted by JJWeatherman (14558 posts) -

Well, that's too bad. That's how I always think of collectors editions turning out though. Probably explains why I never buy them.

Weird thought you did. 
 
The part in bold would happen with ANY retailer who did not give you the code, stop bitching about Gamestop.
#96 Posted by Pickingwings (182 posts) -

To think at one point I really wanted this collector's edition and was willing to pay $80. So glad that I am a cheap bastard to convince myself not to buy this.  Very disappointed that that is all the collector's edition had to offer.

It's a Noisy Cricket but remember that thing packed a punch.
 
Also am I the only one that when sees a "Worst_____________Ever" threads that automatically reads it in Comic Book Guy's voice.
