did not know there was a collectors edition. Put PS3 in the title, lets people know what format :)
#2
saw this for 15 pounds in HMV

saw this for 15 pounds in HMV

the HMV one comes with a novel, rather than an art book
#4
Hmm am tempted!
#5
Anyone know if you can play this in 3D without buying DLC? Is there a patch just to enable the 3D?
#6
It's an import. This was never released in UK (apart from crappy hmv one with garland novel)
comes with artbook box and alternative sleeve.

"Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle" (abbreviated as "USK") is the Self-Monitoring of Entertainment Software system used for video games ratings in Germany.

Hence, the "USK" game rating certification on the cover indicates Germany as the source.

Ugh...I didn't realize there was 2 limited editions...I wanted the art book so bad but when I bought the 'Talent' edition for £20 - all I got was a smelly book and a soundtrack. (I don't read, at all).

Don't always go by the assets (.jpg boxart) that some of the websites use. They use the assets they get from the publisher/PR company, and about 5% of the time, they've they get given the assets from other countries when they're really selling the local copy.

In this case, although it has the German boxart, Zavvi are really still selling a UK-released game.

That sounds like quite an accurate percentage you quoted. Are you involved in the pursuit of sourcing such graphical assets for retailers?

Either way, yes, the game title was released in the UK, but the art book was not.
Therefore, it may have text printed in German.

Maybe a member can advise on this if they own the German version of this product.

Being a European/PAL format item may not be an issue in the case of this particular title. If additional downloadable content (available from PlayStation Store) was available it is typical to find that it is prepared for different territories (the US, Japan, & Australasia [although also a PAL region], for instance) & it may not be compatible with the version of the game owned.

Also, if the game had been censored for a German audience (differently to the content acceptable within the UK) then the actual game-play content may differ.

I used to work in video game PR. Publications would ask us for assets/boxart, and in the event that the publisher didn't have localised boxart ready, we were forced to supply foreign boxart as placeholders.

i got the hmv exclusive for £12.99 recently, not played the game yet, or listened to the cd - or read the book that has nothing to do with the game.

one question though - i noticed in the mega monday deals that zavvi are selling a bunch of hmv exclusive steelbooks - whassupwitdat?
#16
just finished this game. After the first hour where I thought the controls and angles were a tad iffy (after just completing Drake's 1 and 2) I really began to get into this game. I mean really! The game is about 12 hours long and is worth every penny. Seriously... this is one of the highlights of the year for me.

PS - get it on xbox 360 for -slightly- better graphics and less screen tearing. Doubt it will alter gameplay though. Oh, and before the XBOX haters start... I'm lucky enough to have both and Xbox and a PS3 so this is an honest opinion based on lots of evidence online.

Have you, personally, played both versions to make a comparison, or just read about the differences?

Thanks; I have seen that happen on numerous occasions; even in the "officially"-branded publications for each of the major console manufacturers!

I would have thought, though, that The Hut Group could find the correct image for the product they are selling over 7 months after the release date.

HMV often lies about stuff being "HMV exclusive".

You're right, it is a bit strange. However, because they have thousands of products to manage, they generally just leave it as is, as it was the image that the publisher/PR company wanted to broadcast. That is, until enough customers complain that they're using the wrong image at which point the retailer goes back to the publisher/PR company and asks for an updated image.

In fact, let me share a funny anecdote: a small (gaming news) website wanted us to supply the packshot (boxart) for a certain upcoming game we were promoting, which we didn't have on us at the time, and the art-assets guy from the publisher was off sick, so the publisher told us, "Just get it off Amazon." So we did.

wotcha fanpages - yep, played em both. To be honest, not much in it as I played them in separate households so didn't have them side by side... I did enjoy it on the PS3! Like I said, this ain't a bayonetta-style dealbreaker here, you will love it on both platforms. However, did get the feel that the xbox version was better, and then my assumptions were clarified by the comments online. Generally speaking if you're looking at reliable sources that review games on all consoles you can assume that they know what they're talking about - especially if they're video reviews with side-by-side comparisons.

No bias from this poster - currently loving da blob 2 and hard rain on the PS3 - next I'll be back on the Xbox for vanquish and a bit of kinect fun after asda's top deals recently.
