Duke Nukem Forever Gives Its Biggest Fans Balls Of Steel

You've waited 14 years for the game to come out; why not splurge a little? 2K Games punctuates the May release of Duke Nukem Forever with a special edition that's as over-the-top and obnoxious as the game's star himself.

The Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 is a $US99 (according to GameStop) box filled with enough swag to keep even the most hardcore Duke Nukem fan happy for another 14 years.

The Duke Nukem bust alone is worth the price. Having that loveable mug staring down at you 24/7 will keep Duke in your thoughts even if he slips into another decade and a half of development hell.

Along with the bust fans will score a collectible comic book, paper craft, postcards, a 100-page hardcover history book; you know what? Here's a list.

  • Collectible bust of the greatest alien ass-kicker of all-time
  • Numbered, limited-edition certificate of authenticity
  • 100-page hardcover book: The History, Legacy & Legend: Duke Nukem Forever Art from the Vault
  • Duke Nukem Forever postcard series
  • Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem sticker
  • Duke Nukem Forever collectible comic book
  • Duke Nukem Forever foldable paper craft
  • Duke Nukem Forever poker chips
  • Duke Nukem Forever mini-card deck
  • Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem dice

Would you pay $US100 for this massive piece of Duke Nukem history, or do you prefer your balls on the softer side?


    omg i want it, just that bust on its own is awesome. I know EB is going to gouge the hell out of the price though

      Check CD WOW. They have the Killzone Helghast Edition (Prob UK or US version) for $170. Free postage. Versus our retail $250. They might get this Duke pack too.

        Good point, hadn't thought of checking them, Thanks :)

    And just watch as Australia misses out. Again.

      Oh god I hope not '~'

      Nope. The game is coming out unscathed in Australia. :D

        I think Jordaan is talking about the limited ed package.. seeing as Au occasionally seems to miss out on stuff like that..

    $100US no problem, especially considering that's actually less in AUD. But I'm sure they'll make it more like $199 here, and blame the 10% GST for the whole thing.

      10% GST on $100 would be only $10 dollars not $99 so it should be $110 not $199

    Oh well, if we miss out on this, looks like I will be importing this.

    Don't know how i'm going to slip this one past the missus but i'm sure i'll find a way.

    Yes please! I'm betting $199.95

    Would only get if it came with some steel balls

      That's what I was hoping for. Now THAT would have been an epic collector's ed.

    Damn, that's a must-have if I've ever seen one. Might have to look at importing for a change.

    So the American special edition will cost less than the Australian standard edition... yay Australia

    I've already put in my preorder for the Balls of Steel Edition on Amazon. If the dollar stays about where it is, it'll end up costing me about $110 AUD for the PC version (incl. shipping), so only about $10-20 AUD more than it would cost to buy the STANDARD version locally. Plus, this way I have an iron clad guarantee that the game I get is uncensored, rather than Take2's "Trust us, it's not censored. No really, trust us. Just cause we keep ripping Aussies off on pricing doesn't mean we're liars as well..."

      Ahhh, it actually ISN'T edited here in Australia.

      The OFLC stated that, not just 2k Games.

      Also, since you seem to be unaware... 2K Games have NOTHING AT ALL to do with the pricing of the game over here. Despite the fact that the US get the standard release at half our price and our prices really should be lower, it is NOT AT ALL the fault of the people who made the game, but the companies who sell them here.

    OMG i want this... some of you may or may not know im a pretty big Duke Nukem fan and i dont care how much EB sells it at im getting this.

    if this is released in australia for 99$
    i will die of a stroke.

    im betting 250$

    Considering that EB Games currently has the standard (just the game) version of Duke Nukem Forever for $98 for PC & $108 for consoles, expect them to get exclusive rights to this edition, and charge $200-$250 for it

      pre ordered and got it for 150ish at EB

    I've already preordered on amazon.com. Good times.

      I was considering doing that too, because the pre-order option on 2k Games website takes you through to Gamestop in America, instead of a pre-order system of their own, which will likely result in an NTSC copy if ordered that way. How can you be sure the copy that Amazon sends out is playable on 360's here in Australia?

    I still have the original Duke figurine. I so want this.

    $148 at EB games guys, not toooo bad.

      Where did you find this out? I can't see it in the main EB Games website and I want to pre-order it before it runs out :0

    Done... I pre ordered online $148, a lot less then i thought it was going to be but i dont care im that much of a duke fan i dont care paying a little extra.

    Anyways Amazon are sold out of PC and Xbox 360 BoS editions.

    You guys are getting ripped off. Balls of Steel at mightyape.com.au for $124.99AU. Good deal must say.

    Woot just preorderd my copy :D
