Editor’s note: Staff at Broken Joysticks will be sharing their top five games, or game related stories, from 2012 throughout the week. We’re starting the feature with the top five from our contributing reviewer, Jason Fayta.

Dead Space 3’s Terrifying $160 Dev Team Edition Detailed

Posted on January 13, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Looking for forward to EA’s Dead Space 3? Well, the publisher has unveiled the $160, Dev Team Edition, for the most hardcore necromorph hunters out there.  For an entry price like that you’ll get the game on your platform of choice (PS3, Xbox 360 or PC),  an 8 inch Black Marker statue, a Med Pack Water Bottle, 20 page note book filled with extra lore, an art book and post cards.

There was a time when Collector’s Editions of blockbuster videogames were a little daunting with almost every triple AAA title releasing an version that costs nearly double the price. Luckily things have slowed down a bit, save for the Halos, Dead Spaces and Call of Duties of the world.

Are you a fan of limited edition games? I’ve personally bought the Halo 3 limited edition (with Cat Helmet!) and the limited edition Gears of War 3 steel box, but little else. If the Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition sounds up your alley get more information on EA’s website.
