Aye, but what's it retailing for? $130? Not something I'd be willing to pay, frills or not. I can get a console for that much, or, you know, 4 or 5 other, perhaps even better games.

That's a standard price for these ultimate editions it seems. Wasn't Halo Reachs ultimate edition $150?

2 weeks ago i could careless about Killzone 3 but oh has the Beta changed my mind. Come February i might have a Helgast helmet on while playing Killzone 3 when picking up my copy on launch day ;)

@ James... Dead Space 2 comes with Dead Space Extraction for Move and a freaking Plasma Cutter that is scale to actual size! Way cooler than the helmet lol. My copy has been paid up on it as well. Oh we also already got Dead Space Ignition FREE on PSN as well for Preordering. Dead Space 2 Beta is still Awesome!
