It would seem that for many gamers, buying a standard game is no longer enough. The phenomenal sales of Halo 3 in recent days have included the Limited and Legendary Editions, both of which have reportedly sold out at retailers--while the Legendary Edition is currently selling for around £100 ($200) on eBay in the UK.
Today, Midway has announced that a PC collector's edition of Unreal Tournament 3 will be available in November in the US (where the recommended retail price will be $59.95), as well as in the UK, Europe, South Africa, Russia, and "most other territories." The collector's edition was available for preorder online in the UK, and priced at around £39.99 at the time of writing.
The limited-edition package will be encased in a "tin hard cover," and contain an art book featuring the art style of the vehicles, characters, weapons, and environments. It will also include extras on the DVD, including video tutorials about game modifications, and features about the history of Unreal Tournament and the making of Unreal Tournament 3.
