Pre-order extra figure

NICE! I'd pre-order it now, but I'm not sure any stores have it yet. The official site lists May 28th for Best Buy, where they will hand you a figure right away on your order. Thats probably the best place to do it for me anyway.

2K Games sent out an email announcing a pre-order program for Prey, Human Head's new sci-fi shooter. The game will be released as a regular edition and Limited Collector's Edition, available for the PC and Xbox 360 releases. The LCE will feature special metal packaging and include two die-cast pewter figurines (main character Tommy and an alien Hunter), a free download of the Prey soundtrack and a "The Art of Prey" book. The PC LCE also has the game on DVD instead of CD. Anyone who preorders the game will also receive a die-cast pewter figurine of the character Mutate. We have some images from the LCE content right here. As for an ETA? "All four versions of Prey will be released simultaneously this July".
Also - from the news of Prey's homepage:

The Limited Collector's Edition is available for both the Xbox 360™ and PC editions of Prey and includes a special metal packaging upgrade, two die-cast pewter figurines including the lead character Tommy and the alien Hunter, a free download to a Prey soundtrack, and "The Art of Prey" book featuring collected conceptual and development images from the artists behind Prey. In addition, the PC Limited Collector's Edition will include an upgrade to DVD media from CD-ROM.

Oh wait, is he complaining of no CD version? I thought maybe he thought the PC didn't get a collectors edition.

In which case I suggest you run out and buy a cheap DVD drive. Considering how inexpensive they are I don't understand why anyone wouldn't have one by now.

Tomorrow morning I'll be taking some good pictures of the three figures. We have them here at 3DR, but the pics with the 2K press release are kinda not that great. Look for better pictures of the figures tomorrow from us.

Btw -

Too bad they probably would know jack shit about the PC version if I went there. Either I'm doing it at Best Buy (assuming the canadian one follows suit) or directly from you guys online.

No worries on jumping the gun. 2K released the info at a rather bizarre time, if I wasn't awake, I wouldn't have seen it till I got in in the morning anyway.

Judging by that list (and I do hope that is not the final list) we europeans are screwed for the collectors edition. Because none of them have the collectors edition on preorder. For the PC that is.

Notice how it says EB Retail stores.. so just go down to your local EB store and pre-order it.

Same goes with Gamestop.

Oh great, so now us dutchies rely on German retailers for the Prey Collectors edition.

no beef with Germans or german stores or anything... but it'll be a roadtrip in itself to pick it up when it's shipped... that sorta sucks...

Judging by the link X-Vector posted Oberhausen is not very far from where I live, since I would happen to live near Nijmegen. If I can find a good day to drive then I might as well take a go for it, I have my own car and a navigationsystem.

Re: Prey Pre-order!
I'm a little confused by this...
I want the Collectors edition, but i can't just preorder it from the internet when i want a DVD version, is that what it's saying..? So i have to go in some kind of special stores, which seems to be on some whole different country to preorder it from...

Or is it possible to actually just go in some random store, and buy the Collectors edition with all in it..?

Please someone explain this to me... I might just miss i this kind of info in that article, but all the talk about marketing and stuff easily makes me confused...
I just want the Collectors edition with DVD's, and with everything following with it...

Anyways, how exactly is the process of preordering it from EB games..?
Should i just go in there (or call them) and say i want Prey Collectors edition for PC, and that's it, i just have to pick it up when they recieve my order..? (i really hope it's gonna be like this)

Well, you could just call them up and ask if you can pre-order a game and say you would like to prey-order Prey Collectors Edition.

As the article says, when you pre-order the LCE, you get the Mutant, the other two come in the box. Also, make sure and look at our page, and read the details on how to pre-order from where.

I'll need to verify this, but I'm fairly sure if you buy it over Triton, you get the electronic game only, no box, no figures, nothing like that.

I know that. I plan to buy it despite of this:

Quote:
I don't mind switching... but let me make sure I understand. You'll take Max and Kristian will take Prey, aye?
- Charlie Wiederhold.

The Triton thing was that I will probably buy it over that If downloads can be resumed. Since I have got a cap on how much I can download. However anything downloaded between 24:00 - 6:00 doesn't count towards that cap. So if I can resume downloads Prey doesn't have to count towards the cap.

Then surely I will get it that way too.

Dude, DVD drives are like $15 now. How can you have a computer capable of running a game like Prey and NOT have a DVD drive?

It really sucks that we have to resort to collector's editions to get our games on a single disc people people who spend $1500 for an over-priced rig from dell can't shell out $15 for DVD.

OK, I looked into this, and got told the details on what you get when you buy it on Triton have not been settled on, so forget what I said, the proper answer is "don't know yet".

I hope those details are different for Europe. It would be unfortunate if Europeans also get the CD version instead of a DVD. I haven't seen any interesting game on CD after Doom 3, which was two years ago. All the rest is on DVD, and I hope the European version of Prey won't differ in this.
