You're going to need to grind for some spare cash if you fancy buying Dark Souls III's leaked Prestige Edition, as a United Arab Emirates retailer has listed it for 1,799 UAE dirham – or roughly $490. The set includes a copy of the game in a metal case, three iron patches, a cloth map, a hardcover art book, a copy of the soundtrack, and a colossal 40cm Lord of Cinder figurine. If you don't fancy taking on an extra job, then may we suggest selling your soul for this one.
Alternatively, you could just get the bog-standard Collector Edition, which includes all of the above, except with a 25cm Red Knight figurine in lieu of the Lord of Cinder one. The store has listed a 12th April release date for both sets, which is more specific than the vague release window that Bandai Namco has offered us in the past. We'll reach out to the publisher and try and get some clarification. In the meantime, start searching behind the sofa for some extra cents.

I just don't think I could spend more money on a game then the console I play it on... I know it comes with other stuff but still.
OMG! I don't play Dark Souls but I would purchase that Lord of Cinder figurine if it wasn't so expensive. :/
Are these CEs currently for EU only?
I'll grab the £55 version.
Trusty Iron-on Patches.
Who wants a 40cm statue of a Dark Souls character in their house? Who has the room?
No more pre-orders! (but who am I kidding?).
@get2sammyb You don't have 40cm spare in your house? How small is your house? Is it all the Taylor Swift merchandise taking up space?
But yeah, for that price I'd want the armour to actually be wearable, not just on a little statue.
I wish there was a cheaper "special edition" without the statue. I don't care about statues but I would love to have a Dark Souls 3 artbook.
$490? Good grief the video game publishers know there are thousands of suckers out there who will shell out any amount to get a collector's edition.
Nevermind you'll be able to get it on clearance for $30 at Best Buy that following Christmas.
