It’s Heavy Rain day! The EU PS Blog just posted up a picture of the game’s European Special Edition, as you can see here. Very cool.
It’s boxed in a special ‘rain-effect’ slipcase – thanks to “special embossing” and other “manufacturing tricks” it apparently gives the impression of being streaked with 3D rain-drops. Fancy.
Buyers also get voucher to download the following additional content from PSN:
- Heavy Rain: Chronicle 1 – The Taxidermist. This was confirmed as a pre-order goodie for the Americans last week.
- The Heavy Rain Official Soundtrack – Recorded at the Abbey Road studios.
- Dynamic XMB theme
More through there. Still no date. It’s expected in February.

The Splinter Cell Conviction Collector’s Edition is to feature a Sam Fisher statue when the game releases on February 26, if you can believe that.

- Infiltration Mode: Eliminate all hostiles in the mission area without being detected
- A playable skin: Shadow Armor

In addition, this was stuck at the bottom of the press release:
“The Splinter Cell Conviction team invites everyone to connect to the Xbox LIVE on the 16th of December at 5pm UK time for the worldwide premiere of the multiplayer modes.”
So do that.

Sony’s put up a God of War III collector’s edition survey, including a question about including the previous two games on the PS3 title’s Blu-ray.
