Crysis 2: The $200 Special Edition With Nano Pack

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 55 comments

Let's hope that Crysis 3 SE comes with a full nanosuit.

A lot of games these days get special editions. It's a way for the publisher to raise the average selling price of its game as well as give fans and collectors something extra if they want it.

Crysis 2 will be a big thing with its splash onto consoles, and with it will come one massive special edition, if a leak is to be believed.

German website PlayFront.de captured a listing that briefly appeared on Swedish online store Webhallen.com.

It looks like this will be one big special edition with a nano-suit backpack measuring 46cm x 34cm (18 inches by 13 inches) with an exoskeleton spine. Also part of the package is a 7.9 inch-tall Prophet statue, the 176-page art book, a SCAR hologram, and Waffenskin SCAR – Camouflage.

The price is estimated to be $199, so all of this – if it's real – won't come cheap.

    We could all buy Warhead, but can we all afford Crysis 2 SE?

    That Backpack better be durable! Like made by Oakley! It should at least hold a lot for the other $140.

    Nice, I hope the game is good too.
    But seriously, $200?
    For that price it better come bundled with a free Xbox.

    Bam! Wouldn't ya know, the backpack morphs into one hell of a nano-suit.

    ROFL .... ME thinks somebody has lost their noodle with this one. I have played and bought many special editions, and am infatuated with games/Crysis (I think many PC gamers are too) BUT..... COME THE F*** ON 199.00. I would rather eat Dirt 2 for breakfast!

    I disdain special editions - I prefer free t-shirts!
    though as long as the game is the same I couldn't care less.

    WTF? I'm not buying that. I would pay a few bucks extra for a collectors edition like I did for Mass Effect 2, but $200? No, I don't think so.

    I bet it's console only, with no PC SE :)  Cause I know I wouldn't buy anything but the basic edition. I think it is silly to pay more for silly stuff like.. a crappy backpack or an additional "exclusive" set of armour and a slightly more powerful weapon.
