The next millionaire to come out of the games industry will be the home furnishings genius who creates a way of holding and displaying all the special/collector’s/exclusive/ultimate editions of games with their outsize, non-standard packaging and collectible figurines.

The press release for the Red Faction: Guerilla Collector’s Edition doesn’t mention any outlandish stunt-packaging so at least you won’t have to try and fit a box shaped like a helmet or a colonist’s femur or something onto your games shelf. Small mercies.

For around $US 89 you can pick up a copy of the game (Xbox or PS3), plus an ‘art’ coffee table book, bonus DVD (probably a ‘making of’ or something) and a 5-inch poly resin Mining Walker statuette with ‘pewter hand railings’ (er, cool?)
