Pretty cool eh? I'm definitely interested in this for the statue alone. Steelbook collectors should also note that a premium steelbok case will be included in this CE as well along with the game soundtrack, etc. (See pic for details, don't make me type out what you can already see.)
About the statue.. Kratos looks a bit bland compared to previous games. Would have loved to see a figurine of him in the Ares Armor but this will do. At US$79.99, it's a bit cheaper than other CEs which are usually priced at the US$99.99 mark and it doesn't come with an art book which happens to be a common item in CEs. But I'm not complaining.. Cheaper CEs are always welcome especially since I'm only interested in the statue.
There is only 1 CE for the God of War: Ascension game announced so far unlike certain games.. Assassin's Creed.. *cough cough* but in the source link below, it's stated that there will be something big on Oct 15 to be announced.
Preorders for the GoW: Ascension Standard or Collector's Edition will also come with a bonus Mythological Heroes Multiplayer pack where you can play as your favourite Greek Hero in multiplayer.
Stated to be released on March 12, 2013, this will probably be another addition to my collection.
