Fable II Collector's Edition may have missing DLC code

After being stripped down of its heftier extras the Fable II Collector's Edition may have, unintentionally, misplaced one of its replacement bonuses. According to tipsters at Joystiq, some Fable II Collector's Editions sold at GameStop are missing the redeem code for the special in-game downloadable content offered exclusively with the package.

A GameStop source told Joystiq that a company wide email notes that cases bearing an orange "48 hours of LIVE"' sticker include the DLC code, but copies without the sticker do not.

Allegedly customers are being directed by GameStop to the Xbox Support phone line (1-800-4MYXBOX) if their Collector's Edition does not include the code -- which Joystiq confirmed with a phone call to Xbox Support as the current course of action for the situation. The anticipated role-playing game from Lionhead Studios releases for the Xbox 360 today.

Call of Duty: World At War gets Collector's treatment

When it rains collector's editions it certainly pours! Jumping on the bandwagon set up by EA for special editions of Dead Space and Mirror's Edge, Activision has announced a special Collector's Edition of Call of Duty: World at War. Various treats are available with the package which includes the upcoming World War II shooter. Goodies included are:
  • Call of Duty: World at War videogame (surprise!)
  • World at War branded canteen
  • FG 42 Machine Gun available on Day 1 (Usually a Level 45+ weapon)
  • One week of Double-XP goodness (Actual week unknown)
  • Colored Clan Tag (In-game multiplayer character indicator)
  • Stylish tin box to place above-listed treats
So far only the Xbox 360 and PC have had Collector's Editions confirmed. The Xbox 360 edition will retail for $80 while the PC will ask $70 for the set.

$130 Mirror's Edge includes Timbuk2 messenger bag

Quick. Grab your wallet, remove a crisp $100 bill and light it on fire. Actually, don't. But if you were reaching for that Benjamin, this edition of Mirror's Edge might be for you. Deciding that the $150 edition of Dead Space wasn't enough for the holiday, EA has signed on with bag maker Timbuk2 to offer and exclusive Mirror's Edge branded messenger bag with the game for a collective total of $130.

Sure, it's much nicer than GameStop's pre-order bag but do you really need that $130 strapped to your sholder when so many great games are hitting by years end? Well, if you do need it we guess it could be worse ... at least it isn't priced at Timbuk200 dollars! Amirite?

Real life Pip-Boy or wacky geek clock? You decide

Bethesda must really have faith in Fallout 3. Not only are they doing a "normal" collectors edition, but now they're actually going for the coveted Cat-Helmet Award® by actually creating some sort of uber-collectors edition. Available only through Amazon, the only difference between the "Survival Edition" and the normal CE is the replica Pip-Boy, which is actually a digital clock. Maybe some of the Fallout faithful out there will be willing to shell out $129.95 plus shipping for this, but frankly, we already have an alarm clock. We hate it, we don't need another one. Still, it'll be interesting to see how its sales pan out. Even though it's an Amazon exclusive, could it eventually see the price drops that the Halo 3 one did?

Fallout 3 Collectors Edition lunch box and contents

Twenty dollars more for a collector's edition eh? Well Bethesda looks to be making this one as worth it as they can, by cramming it full of creative extras. This isn't just a simple "Making of" DVD (though there is one of those too). There's also the bobble head, the 100 page hardcover art book, and the nuclear-devastation ready lunch box to hold it all in. Plus, y'know, the game.

That is the most important part after all, but to tell the truth this looks like a great example of how to do a CE right. As long as the game is the at the level of quality we hope it is, we might just have to knuckle under and shell out the extra money ....
