Limited Edition offering very weak
When you think of the special "limited edition" version of a game, you expect an art book, a making-of DVD, or something you can actually hold in your hands. Well, that's not the case with the newest Need For Speed title.
Electronic Arts unveiled details about the Limited Edition version of Need For Speed Hot Pursuit this week at Gamescom. What's so special about the Limited Edition? Well, you'll get a few extra cars in the game. That's it. No miniature Need For Speed car models. No exclusive poster. Indeed, it seems the only thing you'll get is in-game content that EA obviously siphoned off from the regular version of the game so that it could lock it out and charge extra for it in the Limited Edition.
Those who purchase the special version of NFS:HP will receive the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Ford Shelby GT500, Audi TT RS Coupé, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Porsche Cayman S and Dodge Challenger SRT8 right off the bat. Most of those will still actually be available in the regular version of the game, but players will have to figure out how to unlock them.

Seriously, though, I call huge shenanigans on this thing actually being called a "Limited Edition," because there's nothing of value for a collector in this package. This is just EA being seriously cheap.
