Good price for all that stuff.  I have no interest in the extras, but that's a lot better than charing $130-$150 like some super editions.

#102 Posted by AjayRaz (12427 posts) -

i would gladly drop a ridiculous amount of money to check out that development history book 

#103 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

No way, the game looks like an amusing rental at best.

Amazon says $100! I want it NOW!
#105 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

looks pretty sweet.  I'll stick with the regular edition thougj

#106 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

I think im going to have to buy it.. 
#107 Posted by Sil3n7 (1189 posts) -

It took them over 10 years to create those busts. Mystery solved.

#108 Posted by Undeadpool (4935 posts) -

A bunch of people told me it's apparently $100...I'm sorry I can't reply individually, but I can't find you in the comments and I'll just say: "This is relevant to my interests!"

#109 Posted by Gonmog (583 posts) -

Buying. Done deal.

#110 Posted by LegendaryChopChop (1208 posts) -

Well the bust will obviously be a miniature bust (probably 6 inches) but that's still a good size, even if it's hollow. The rest of the stuff are obviously just little trinkets, but much better than those found in some other highly-priced CEs. The cards, the chips, the dice, the comic book... those are all pretty damn wicked.

I think this is the only special edition I HAVE to get, this game has been in development for so long now this would be like owning a piece of history.

#112 Posted by Xymox (2088 posts) -

"looks like 2K Games will only be producing 2,000 units. "  big, big mistake? I hope the pressure for them is so high the'll have to make more runs as the first batch is out. 

#113 Posted by SeriouslyNow (8534 posts) -

Complete lack of steel ben wah balls.  What a crock.

#114 Posted by VilhelmNielsen (1735 posts) -

This is a belt buckle away from being a collection of all the swag they've given at the E3s they showed the game at through the years.

Just throw in a couple ball bearings or something, like they show right on the box. Maybe with Duke's face on them. It's a totally obvious and easy thing that would have been pretty funny. 
Or how about just a plastic keychain or something where you could press a button and it would play the "I've got balls of steel!" clip, perhaps among other Duke phrases. Like a real-life soundboard. 
I don't know, I just think that DNF deserves a less conventional collector's edition. I imagine there's an unusually high percentage of people buying this game who would want a CE as opposed to most other games out there, so why not go all out?
#118 Posted by Salgueiro (4 posts) -
@test0r: Haha that would definitely be awesome. 
Overall it looks pretty ok, i wouldn't buy it though.
#119 Posted by Hef (1115 posts) -

I might actually get that just because of that book.  If it chronicles the development of this game in any way, I think it'd be a pretty cool read.

#120 Posted by MaFoLu (1858 posts) -

I'm gonna get myself a Bust of Steel...

#121 Posted by BitterAlmond (401 posts) -

Somebody earlier said "100$" for all this. If that's true, I'm buying.

#122 Posted by AllenV86 (150 posts) -

looks nice but wont be cheap 
grtz Allen :-p

#123 Posted by Gish (4 posts) -

Day 1 for me, I've been waiting for this game for wayyy too long.

#124 Posted by hfm (76 posts) -

The problem I see is that it does not come with any actual Balls Of Steel... they're pictured on the box though...

#125 Posted by demontium (4709 posts) -

YES! Gearbox: Success!

#126 Posted by Rekt_Hed (848 posts) -
yo mate you can pre order it here :D 
#127 Posted by Rekt_Hed (848 posts) -
I was freakin out as well you can order it straight from the UK here :) 

#128 Posted by Paulrus (244 posts) -

I just want the book. And the game.

#129 Posted by ajamafalous (11990 posts) -

How big's the bust? I might actually buy this.

#130 Posted by Vigorousjammer (2502 posts) -

oh man, only 2000 being produced?
I think I might buy this and a regular copy of the game and just keep this thing sealed...

#131 Posted by Mjolnir (456 posts) -

Having "CARPE NUKEM" engraved at the base of the bust almost makes this worth it.

#132 Posted by CurtMan2k7 (123 posts) -

the only thing that would have made this better, is having balls of steels that hang on your rear view mirror
#133 Posted by heatDrive88 (2333 posts) -

Looks like a huge waste of money for a piece of plastic that will sit and do nothing.
If there's one thing these often-photoshopped pictures of all the contents of a Collector's Edition often portrays is to make the contents seem awfully larger than they actually are to scale.

#134 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

Am I a shithead for wanting this?
#135 Posted by HDN (2 posts) -

I agree with a lot of people on here...where are the actual BALLS OF STEEL man...what a let down.

#136 Posted by Drayco90 (17 posts) -

Looks like 2011 is going to abort my whole freaking wallet, should have come with an empty bubblegum pack though.

#137 Posted by claudius (185 posts) -

I want to know details about the bust before purchasing. I don't want to put a dinky little plastic thing over the fireplace in my study.

#138 Posted by zitosilva (1840 posts) -

I really want to check that "Legacy and History" book.

#139 Posted by commodore64 (113 posts) -

I think we need a delay. For old times sake.

#140 Posted by Mattxx (45 posts) -

Damn, I really want this. Haha.

#141 Posted by Chubbaluphigous (571 posts) -

All I really want is a tell all book about the long development, and why it took so long.  If that is what the book included is, then i will be buying this.  However, it looks like it is just an art book.  While the art books are interesting for one flip through, I don't really want them in special bundles.

#142 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

People will be crying if this game is bad.

#143 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

I'm buying it.

#144 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Here’s the full list of stuff in the Balls of Steel edition, as gathered by  Shacknews

  • Collectible bust of the greatest ass-kicker of all-time  
  • Numbered limited edition certificate of authenticity 100-page hardcover book: 'History, Legacy & Legend: Duke Nukem Forever Art from the Vault'  
  • Duke Nukem Forever postcard series  
  • Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem sticker  
  • Duke Nukem Forever collectable comic book  
  • Duke Nukem Forever foldable paper craft  
  • Duke Nukem Forever poker chips  
  • Duke Nukem Forever mini-card deck  
  • Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem dice

 It's nice to see that they forgot to include the actual game in the Balls of Steel Edition :P.
#145 Posted by Three0neFive (2293 posts) -

dunno if it's already been mentioned, but that bust looks really, really small.

#146 Posted by Lind_L_Taylor (3966 posts) -

That's ridiculous!  That's a lot of collectible crap you have
to hold onto for 5 years or so before unloading on the geek
market (assuming anyone will actually buy it from you).

#147 Posted by zombieman (9 posts) -

Wish I had the money.

#148 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

I want the bust so that I can carve it into a mask. 
Imagine the possibilities....
