[Update] Deep Silver apologizes for bringing Zombie Bait to the UK
Editor's Note: In a hilarious turn of events, Deep Silver has apologized for the bust saying "it will never happen again". Ironically, they've not mentioned whether or not they will actual pull the Zombie Bait.
In my opinion, Collector’s Editions tend to be a huge waste of time. Unless you’re a truly devoted fan, I feel like simply owning the game is what is most important and the more money I have, the more games I can afford. That's my bias. Then there is Deep Silver’s Dead Island: Riptide Zombie Bait edition. Not only does it include the all too common Steelbook case and extra DLC, but there is also this figurine that’s well… just look.
Billed as “a striking conversation piece”, if there was ever a piece of video game memorabilia that would ensure “Forever Alone”, this has to be it. I imagine that 9 out of 10 women would probably reconsider their relationship with a guy when they see this on the living room bookshelf. At a price of £99.99, it seems in line with what most games are charging these days.
Interested parties can pick up this tacky collector’s edition in Europe come April 26th on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Just don’t tell anyone about it.
