Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition Announced, EU PS3 Owners Lose Out On Best Collectable

Originally leaked by Amazon, EA has officially announced a Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition, with a whole slew of exclusive downloadable content and even the entire Dead Space Extraction game. Unfortunately, one of the best collectables provided with a game – a replica Plasma Cutter – will not be available on the PS3 in the European Union, and is coming exclusively to the 360 and PC.

As announced by EA, included in all versions of the Collector’s Edition there will be:

  • Dead Space 2 game
  • Downloadable Unitology Suit and Force Gun, providing Isaac with unique benefits when used in Dead Space 2.

  • Downloadable Rivet Gun for use in-game.

However, the exclusive bonus content for the Xbox 360 and PC only is:

  • Replica of Isaac’s trusty Plasma Cutter, modelled from the new design from Dead Space 2.

During the opening stages of 2010 developer Visceral Games asked fans “IF we were to put out a Dead Space 2 Collector’s Edition, what would you want to see in it?” The sequel to the popular franchise from publisher Electronic Arts is currently scheduled for a release on January 25th, 2010. By pre-ordering the title you’ll be rewarded with Dead Space Ignition.

Are you upset that the Plasma Cutter is coming to all versions of the game in North America, but only on the 360 and PC in Europe?
