Instead of offloading GameStop with a bunch of download codes for a new piece of ankle armour, Namco Bandai's upgrading all preorders for the upcoming Dark Souls to the collector's edition. Indeed, instead of charging $100 for additional crap no-one wants, they're giving it away for free — assuming you preorder of course.

The collector's edition comes packaged in a metal tin and includes all the usual gubbins: an art-book, strategy guide, behind-the-scenes development video and soundtrack. All for $60. Namco Bandai, we salute thee.
