Bonus pack for Xbox gamers

I’ve just noticed something else to get excited about. It looks like Majesco and GlyphX will be following the newish trend of releasing ‘Special Edition’ versions of new releases. We’ve seen it with Halo 2, Doom 3, Jade Empire and will soon be seeing it with Advent Rising. Pretty good company to be in.

At this stage all we know about the bonus content is as follows from EBgames.com :
“Bonus DVD includes: Advent Rising trailers, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, soundtrack samples and exclusive artwork.”

It seems to be limited edition only, and your best bet would be to pre-order. Gamestop.com is also listing the ‘Bonus’ but Amazon is only listing the regular edition. Also no word on availability for European/UK/Aus NZ gamers. I’ll see what I can find out !

It doesn’t appear to be available for PC gamers, so it looks like they will have to make do with the cheaper purchase price. (RRP USD$29.99 compared with $49.99)

The other big thing to note about the listing is the release date of May 31 2005. A UK release date I could find was June 3, 2005. (I would assume the rest of Europe and Australia/NZ would be around this date as well) More details as I find them.

EDIT ! Schwarzwald at the Majesco forums has pointed out that Gamestop.com have now updated their listing. Their bonus is different to the EBgames one and is a console sticker for your Xbox.

Personally I would go for the DVD... but some might find the sticker cool.

Q : Which would you prefer ? Sticker or DVD ?

I’ll go for the DVD too, but sadly it’s only for Xbox gamers…

On the plus side for PC gamers, the price should be cheaper and the graphics more eye popping.

Based on the descriptions of the control scheme I would try and play, even on the PC with a controller.
