I still don't understand collector's editions of anything. Just a bunch of useless junk for people with a "cool stuff" hoarding disorder if you ask me lol.

It's not "useless junk" for people who are really anticipating the game.  It's like the icing on the cake, cherry on the sundae, etc.

If that book has any sort of history on the game's development, I am pre-ordering that shit and standing at the doors on opening day to get it. Like... god damn.

I love collectors editions because it allows me to maintain a museum of game props in my living room. I generally only buy special editions of games that come with a prop from the game(lunchbox/pip boy from fallout, night vision from MW2, remote controlled car from blops), but the development book really sold me on this one

Definite pass. A bunch of useless trinkets for a game that will very likely suck.

I would get this if it came to Europe. 
 
Unless I was out of bubblegum at that point.

Done and done. 
I grew up watching my uncle play Duke Nukem, that shit was awesome. 
100 bucks is really not that much money.

Well you're suppose to be out of gum... "
Well then it should come with an empty pack of gum.

It's just extra swag.  People like swag- well, apparently not you lol.

Agreed.  Seriously those chinese steel balls with the Nuke Logo on them?  Perfect!  And easy!   
 
The bubblegum box is just a nice idea.  :)  
 
As for what IS included I don't mind it, but I don't care enough to get it.  Will I play the game?  Maybe.  But I'm still not certain it's really REALLY coming out.  :)

Yeah, that's about all I'd be interested in. Not worth $100 though.

Can't fucking wait to get this. That bust is so over-the-top that it's a whole new level of awesome.

It's only 100 dollars on Amazon... wow. Gonna pre-order this. That bust is worth at least 30 itself, and the game is 60. This is a very well priced edition.

I wish they were making more. I would buy one but I doubt this will take long to sell out.

Would cost me around 120 pounds worth to import...that's not including the inevitable customs costs :( 
 
Will spend all night looking at UK retailer websites...I won't give up hope yet. 
  
EDIT: Checked Amazon UK, nothing. Then checked Shopto.net (my usual retailer) and it's there for£89...BUY IT NOW!!!

I would have liked to see the Balls of Steel pinball game in there too, maybe DN3D on the disc, but this works too.

so, why aren't there steel balls?

Avatar image for hamst3r
#96 Posted by Hamst3r (5247 posts) -

Kinda weird that it doesn't come with:
 
1. A pack of gum.
2. Balls of steel.
3. Sunglasses - just like Duke's.
4. One of those big buttons, with a nuke design on it, that spouts one liners. "Hail to the king, baby!" 
 
Come on.

@crithon:  It would have been great if they included those  therapeutic magnetic balls  where you roll around in your hand. cue cheesy liners, "now you're playing with duke". They're cheap, it should have been in there

" Depending on the price point (I'm going to go out on a limb and say $150-200), this might TOTALLY be worth it. "

It's $99.99. 
 
Also, after the lackluster package of Dead Space 2's collector's edition, publishers will be lucky if I EVER buy another CE.  Moreover, the bust in this picture...despite the attempted perspective shift with the camera positioning and slant of the table or whatever...well, the bust isn't bigger than the game box.

This edition doesn't need Balls of Steel. It already has the Duke. :3
Not too fussed about the generic playing cards, poker chips and even the bust. It's the books I'd love to read. I'm surprised it's not an entire novel!
