It seems nowadays the only thing a game needs to do to get itself a shiny collector’s edition full of dubiously valued content is to throw on a short skirt and some <bleep> me shoes. Not to be left waiting in line with the uncool pleebs, God of War III is wanting a piece of the action and it’s turning to the adoring fans to make it happen.
An e-mail sent out to PlayStation Underground’s Game Advisory Panel (copy pasta’d below) lays it all out on the silk sheets, asking people what they want to see included; even what kind of packaging they want. Someone as jaded as myself, who thinks 99% of collector’s edition are a waste of money, can’t argue with communicating directly with the fans to deliver a package they’d want to throw $70-100 down on (I feel for you too, non-Americans, but I can’t research currency symbols right now). Hopefully it doesn’t end up like the neutered BioShock and Fable II Collector’s Editions. I want my damn steelbook case still!
