    Better than the European one’s.. Of course. :P

    They get a full size art book, we get a mini one. Sums it up really.

    Sweet. I never thought I’d spend as much for a collector’s edition, but I’m shelling out for the Post-Pandemic edition of this. I said I’d buy a collectors edition of it if one was announced, and I’m going big. Missed my chance on The Songbird edition of Bioshock Infinite.

    Is the Survival Edition exclusive?

    I think I’ll be importing it for that book. I had the Uncharted 2 artbook and its one of the best I own, its beautiful and in-depth and fat and nice.

    Game have’nt put the Ellie Edition up yet either. I fucking hate Game.

    Just pre-ordered the survival edition from Gamestop.

    I own the Uncharted 2 art book as well, possibly the best art book I own :) Slightly gutted Ballistic never did an Uncharted 3 one though.

    And since I have a US PSN account for any imports I do, I’m not missing out on DLC (Sights and sounds that is, couldn’t give a rats ass about multiplayer stuff)
