Here we go, folks: another clutch of collector's editions stuffed to bursting with merch, DLC and tat. Microsoft has spilled the beans on what exactly we can expect in Gears Of War 3's Limited and Epic Editions, which will cost £60 and £99.99 respectively. There's a statue. There's always a statue. Full details after the break.
The movie (embedded below) shows the painstaking lengths to which the eleven inch Marcus Fenix statue has been crafted - which could be yours if you opt for the £100 GAME and Gamestation exclusive Epic Edition. Fans of... you know... less tat might be better suited with the Limited Edition, which includes COG tags, a fabric flag and lots of papery bumf to pore over.
Here's what you can expect in the two editions - and naturally we'll do our best to save you guys some money.
