Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition Announced [Update: It's $100]

[Update: 08:56] Publisher 2K Games has confirmed that the Balls of Steel Edition will cost $99.99 and, in the US, be sold exclusively by GameStop and Amazon. There's no mention of retailer exclusivity in Europe. We also have a better picture of its contents. [Original] Duke Nukem Forever has a release date, Garnett played it earlier this week, and now a special edition has been announced; it almost seems as if it's actually coming out. The 'Balls of Steel Edition,' which has yet to be priced, packs goodies including a bust of Duke himself, a 100-page hardcover art book, poker chips, dice and more.
