Maybe its just me but those look photoshopped...there isnt even the Digi-pak in there. But maybe im wrong...

Also doesnt the box look like a Bat? Thats just a square box

Yeah, in the CE pic, it shows that the case is in the shape of a batarang. So these are probably fake, or another version of the CE. Or maybe they decided to change it. IDK.


I hate when people don't read
Those are the UK collectors editions!

Amputechture

It may be true...but REALLY looks like a mock up but at least one for UK...look at the rating. It honestly doesn't make sense they would change any of the packaging for the UK anyways...

crazyish
18th Apr 2009, 21:28
it is the UK collecters edition you can tell by looking at the rating on the box americas rating system is different we use the ratings C E E+10 T M and A
while on that box it appears it says 12+ which is not an american rating

British ratings go 3+, 12+, 16+, 18+

This is the correct UK edition of the Collectors Edition, GAME doesn't have it listed only Play.com (at the moment that is!)

Why do we get a lame box and an uglier looking book ? :(

And if you look close, the pic for the UK one still anotates the box as being 'Batarang' Shaped

Jason Todd
19th Apr 2009, 02:01
Why do we get a lame box and a different book ? :(

Because thats most likely photoshopped and fake....i mean it looks SO fake, if its real im very surprised

Jason Todd
19th Apr 2009, 02:25
Yeah, I know. I saw that and I was like,"Wow, that looks so photoshop-ed"

Exactly, I can't believe only like two people have agreed with me, you can even see how the layers overlap, Like someone else said there's no shadows...and the box just looks...like someone drew it....also WHERE'S THE DIGI-PAK?!

People people, I know I may be late in response to the hoopla, but take a look at the "new" two AA collector editions. So photoshopped. lol. Anyone who claims that's real need to be tied to a pole a have a couple batarangs thrown at them lol.

There is no depth, no perception no detail no realness to it. In all my years of working in photoshop and going to college and getting my bachelors in Graphic design have I seen such poor photoshop work. Had a better shot in making that in Adobe illustrator. lol Besides, why would the UK get a special Collectors edition for the same price. I wouldn't want to spend 100 bucks on that lol.


Carry on all. That made me laugh, thanks to whoever posted that.

Don't know how you can say that, do you think someone has just made it up for the sake of it?

Granted its an artistic representation, but I'm sure this is how companies would give you an impression of what to expect - they may not have manufactured any at time of releasing this information.

Plus I don't think Play.com would advertise something that would breach any form of the Trades Description Act!

So consider your opinions before you claim something is fake...

Ironically, like many people on here have said - there is 'another' version of the CE.

Here's the proof (and its in the same format as the picture from Play.com here in the UK) Just with a different box and Journal.

Prehaps they are all like this now and the first picture I posted was actually an initial design for the CE but they have 'ramped' up the quality since then...

We'll see closer to release...

IMO i think getting the collectors edition for the batarang is extremely nerdy. I am a batman fan but come on, paying $100 dollars so you can jump around your room acting like batman and accidentally stick your mom in the face with it? i dont think so, that is such a gimmick so they can get you to pay $40 more dollars for it. Then after that with all these request and people wanting to see alternate costumes they are going to put them on the XBL marketplace and sell them for about 200-250 points each and get you to pay more. No Thanks =]

I notice that the exclusive Challenge stuff for the CE isn't actually exclusive, just free and in advance.

That, the journal, the batarang and the behind the scenes are the only reasons I was thinking about getting the CE. If I can just download the Challenge stuff later and see the Behind The Scenes on Youtube eventually, I don't really think paying $40 extra for a batarang and Arkham's journal, no matter how cool the batarang is, is entirely worth it.

I've heard a bit about a CE exclusive villain, but I don't see info about it on that picture... Anyone have any info about it.

Over here its only like £10/20 more, So its a good price seeing as something like the batarang would usually cost more, then your getting a DVD, and a Book, so i reckon its pretty fairly priced

Roughly;
Game -£40/50
Book - £5/10
DLC - £5
Batarang - £20/25
DVD - £10

Those are roughly what those things would cost here in the UK, so seeing as the extras with the game would be around £50, and the whole package is £60, i think its a pretty good price :)

Fairly priced? are you kidding me? they are trying to make money off of you by taking some cheap kind of metal and shaping it into a novelty item and then after that they take some videos of how they produced the game and show you, big whoop. then after that cheap $5 metal boomerang they throw in that DVD thats is about $10 and then throw some paper in there. why do you want to see whats behind the scenes? and you get the challenge for pre-ordering and if the one with the CE is different then in a month or two it will be downloadable for everyone.

....looks like I've opened a can of worms here.

As for my comment about what one I was talking about, I knew you lot would get it wrong - I knew the comment was directed at the 'Play.com' version (the claim that it was fake) not the first post and 'fake' versions :lmao:

Anyway, back to the subject of the 2 versions of CE.

As some of you have already stated, there are indeed 2 versions, and I'm afraid that the UK is being dumped on yet again! (really we should boycott the CE version here in the UK, make them waste money in marketing it!)

Here's the official response direct from Eidos (I emailed them to ask about it)

Thanks for the email. They are for different territories and not great news if you’re in the UK. The ‘standard’ edition (without the nice leather action) is for the EU I’m afraid.







Best,

UK is being dumped on? Seriously? There are only 2 differences between the US and the EU CE of the game. A) The US CE gets a batarang shaped box while the EU CE has a simple box and B) The US's doctor's journal is made out of leather while the EU's version isn't.

I don't see what the big deal is. I actually prefer the normal box instead of the batarang shaped one of the US version and as for the doctor's journal...while it would have been kinda cool if it was made from leather, it doesn't matter at all. It's the same book, only with a different cover.

I hear what you're saying, but for me (and I'm not alone) its pure poor market research. Really what is the thinking behind it? Cost? Surely not, we in the UK are over charged for everything, so the fact they can spend more on what may only be 2 'minor' design differences for the US market puzzles me. :mad2:

If they have to manufacture boxes and leather covers, surely a single run of X amount of boxes and books for a worldwide release makes more sense than X amount of one type of box/book then X amount of another type of box/book for 2 different regions? I used to work in manufacture and you always worked on larger orders of one thing than multiple smaller orders (there is material change overs and machine setting-up's to contend with) Of course this may be going to far for something like this, prehaps there is no real difference with this type of product to manufacture 2 types of box/book, but I still think that through market research within the different regions, Eidos would have foundout what the game playing public would 'accept' as a 'Collectors Edition'

I can't believe someone high up made the decision to change the box let alone the book...what makes it worse is we all know that there is 'another' version out there, and we are only questioning why they deem the EU regions should get a 'tweeked' version? I guess we'll never know. :scratch:

All things considered though, the game does look good, and worthy of a CE version however it comes (I do like my CE versions of games, got more on the PC though, so I guess this could be the things to come? Console CE versions?)
