Would love a bundle with PS3 and Collector’s Edition… Want that statue to go with my Pandora’s Box.

This applies to all Europe right?

Also, would the pricing of the controller + game bundle be the same of the inFamous 2 that landed back at the time?

Thanks 🙂

    It applies to all European markets who’ve chosen to include these bundles for launch, so you’ll need to check with local retailers to see if they’re available.


I want the statue but the only place that I can find that has it are Shopto, their prices are usually amazing but they have it for £85? So im gonna pay an extra £45 for a statue?? Yeah no thanks…

    Ross Alexander 15 February, 2013 @ 4:43 pm    

    The higher price point relates to the inclusion of the Season Pass for all future DLC, as well as the statue.


does the steelbook only have a slot for 1 disc or will it have 4 so i can put gow3, gow hd and gow hd2 in it?

    Ross Alexander 15 February, 2013 @ 4:45 pm    

    The steelboook allows for 2 disks to be inserted so you wouldn’t fit all of the above in there.

Pre ordered this bad boy in december wife says part of my xmas so cant wait. Played gow1 when it first came out on ps2 years ago was hooked love the series best thing on playstation. Roll on march 15 th

At post 3 I spotted ppl selling the statues and game for 400 bucks i was like. Dude realy dont they know u can get it for 79 notes

Can you tell me where I can buy the top item:

Standard Edition with a limited edition God of War: Ascension DUALSHOCK3 Wireless Controller

As I can’t find it at the usual UK retailers.

#2 You pay £45 more for Statue, Steelbook, Soundtrack, PS3 Avatar pack, Theme, Season Pass and Double XP in MP.

Special Edition is only included in Consol Bundle

And again that stupid blue unremovable sticker which ruins every nice boxart – SCEE speciality.

PAUL_UK-77 14 February, 2013 @ 4:03 pm   11

roll on march 13

supersmith2500 14 February, 2013 @ 4:39 pm   12

Quick question, is the UK release 15th or is it 13th like the rest of Europe? Please answer.

Why does the “Standard Edition with a Black PS3 500GB and limited edition God of War: Ascension DUALSHOCK3 Wireless Controller” have a black controller in the picture?


The collectors edition also needs a cool controller 🙁

MP_is_for_Chumps 14 February, 2013 @ 7:36 pm   15

Hey Ross Alexander & SCEE,

How about telling us for once what retailers are actually doing these different special editions?

everytime u do one of these u never say where they can actually be bought. I assume its a secret right?

…..cant have them exclusives selling well, right sony?

    Ross Alexander 15 February, 2013 @ 4:49 pm    

    As there are so many markets covered by SCEE, it’s not feasible in a blog post to list all the different retailers who are selling these bundles. In addition, not all territories sell every bundle, so the best advice is that you check with your local retailers to see what is available in your territory.

and Jesus Christ sort out that ridiculous hyphenation script here – do you know how dumb it looks when words are cut off at random points and split between two lines?

Allready pre-ordered a LE or something from Game, can’t believe it’s nearly here, time has just flown it seems, i might just go for one of them bundles though, usually change/renew around April/May anyway and this 320GB should get me halfways to newer one, in trade, plus added game included, hmm. But i must see what the reveal on 20th says first, Will i even bother getting another ps3?, i wonder..
Ross is that the Ross who done (good work) plus for us a while back ?. if so i thought you left scee for greener pastures, something your avatar picture looks like he’d like (lol), where’d you get that from, more importantly why did you pick it ?, never seen it before, anywhere.. which i guess is a good reason itself. anyway if it is ‘our’ Ross hope your well, if it isn’t then, well same i guess.

    Ross Alexander 15 February, 2013 @ 4:50 pm    

    The Ross you’re talking about is Ross McGrath.
    He has indeed moved on to work at 2K.


    Another Ross

What will the prices be for the bundles?

solarwind12 14 February, 2013 @ 9:04 pm   19

My ‘guess’ on prices is they will be the exact same as other bundles you can find around, usually it’s buy console with X game And have X BD movie And choice of 1 of 3 older games, type of thing, am not sure about other regions but UK make it so it actually profits you, or at least only slightly costs you to trade in for new ‘bundle’, obviously theres times when this isn’t as attractive, but they are very rare.. IF the gold controller will excempt this from the avarage cost then i would give it a miss, though i can’t see that being the case.. only ‘headache’ is having to redownload 280oddGB of ‘stuff’ everytime.. wish it was possible to store content externally.


Amazon or Shopto stocking the controller bundle?

bitbydeath 15 February, 2013 @ 12:33 am   21

QLD now has R18 introduced, can we get this game now plz have the best price ive found for collectors edition, gotta have that statue (let alone all the other stuff!) also have it, the bundle with controller ive ever only seen on as thats who stocked the infamous and killzone ones before. Hope this helps folks.


I want steelbook, double xp, dlc pass and the controller… That Collector’s Edition would be perfect with gow-controller instead of statue.

Stonesthrow 15 February, 2013 @ 4:58 pm   24

I learned buying figurines seperately because the ones included in games are always either too big or small or whatever for my taste :p Not very interested in the DLC either as it seems to be mostly multiplayer influenced.


Got it pre-ordered today at GAME

The God of War: Ascension Collector’s Edition is available at greenman gaming for £59.99.Hope this helps someone out.
