Dead Space 3 has formally announced its special pricey package for franchise fans to get the game with some bonuses. It includes some physical items that resemble in-game props, but the price of the extras? A hundred bucks.

The Dev Team Edition (via Polygon) includes a tin Collector's Case, a journal from Dr. Serrano, a flip book data pad with image sets to serve as a replica prop, a 14 oz. water bottle modeled after the game's med-pack, an eight-inch Marker statue, a 96-page art book, three 5x10 inch posters, and six 3.75x6 inch postcards.

The $160 version includes the Limited Edition goodies that come with the first run of the game. But EA also offers a $100 set sans game, just in case you've already pre-ordered it elsewhere or plan on buying the game digitally.

      A while ago, I would've snarked at this, but right now I have the P4A Aigis and Labrys figmas shipping in next month. If you love the fiction and really want the trinkets, go for it, but keep in mind the inherent risk of preordering a game that might fall short critically or technically.

        Surplus can often see pretty hefty discounts after a while too.

      I *would* have bought this...

      'Direct' Editions are typically more of a pain than they're worth. Especially in Canada, you end up *paying* in shipping and duties, and then if the product comes damaged, you'll have to pay the extras AGAIN, *IF* you can even exchange it. =/
