Turns out we're getting the Resident Evil 5 Collectors Edition after all. THQ, fresh from picking up the rights to distribute Capcom in Australia and New Zealand, has confirmed the news today, debunking earlier word that we'd miss out.
Inside the $169.95 pack, you'll find:
* Resident Evil 5 Game
* Chris Redfield 3-inch Figurine
* BSAA Patch
* Kijuju Necklace
* Tricell Messenger Bag
* Steel Book tin
* Bonus Disk - with a 60-minute making-of video and the Resident Evil Degeneration movie trailer
Perhaps with an eye to hyping demand, THQ also notes that they expect the Collectors Edition to sell out in pre-order. So best to check in as soon as possible at your local JB Hi-Fi, EB or GAME store, if you're interested in some sweet zombie swag. You can also pick up the Limited Edition for $129.95, but you only get the Steel Book tin and bonus disk.
And, for the PS3 owners, here's what yours will look like>
