Along with the news also comes word of multiple versions of the game that’s currently up for pre-order on PSN.

For the ultimate collector and fan, there’s the Collector’s Edition.

It currently has no retail price (we’ll update once we know more) but comes with EVERYTHING from all the other editions PLUS:

  • Life-sized BB Pod Statue.
  • BRIDGES Cargo Case.
  • Ludens Keychain.

Oh, that BB Pod Statue? It is life-sized.

When you absolutely, positively need people to say WTF.

Now that you’ve seen all the different versions on offer, which one are you going to get?

UPDATE: While there is still no pricing for the Collector’s Edition locally, Amazon has it up for pre-order at USD$199.99. It’ll ship to Singapore for about USD$5 (more if you opt for faster delivery options), so total it’ll be about SGD$282.50, give or take. Note that Amazon doesn’t charge for pre-orders, so you can just reserve on right now in case the local version is more expensive.

We’ll definitely have a review of Death Stranding when it draws near so tune in then to see if Kojima’s latest is a masterpiece or a must avoid piece.
