Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning: Pricey Bundles Revealed

There are Collectors Editions, Limited Editions...and then there are bundles that only the hardest of the hardcore are gonna nab.

The anticipated RPG by Big Huge Games, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, is slated to arrive on February 7. When it does, you will have no less than four purchase options.

One is the standard $60 price for the game; the other three are optional bundles. First up is the $80 Special Edition, which includes a parchment map of the game world, a seven-piece dice set, the official soundtrack, a set of 40 Destiny Cards, and a DLC pack that features nine weapons, each of which offer EXP boosts. But that's nothing compared to the Collector's Edition.

This bad boy will run you $200 and there will be only 700 available. You'll get everything that's in the Special Edition along with an individually numbered 12.5-inch solid resin Prismere Troll figurine created by McFarlane Toys, and one of 1,000 lithographs signed by designer Ken Rolston. And that is child's play compared to the insane Signature Edition.

It'll cost a whopping $275 and there will be only 300 made. You get everything in the Collector's bundle with a few extra bonuses: that figurine will be signed by either "Spawn" creator Todd McFarlane, best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, or former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling. You'll also get an individually numbered sketch screen print by McFarlane as well. Okay, you up for it?

The first game to be released by 38 Studios, this one has a lot of promise. Designer Ken Rolston, who worked on both The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, was at the helm. For more, be sure to check out our preview.

Good question. This hit my radar some time ago thanks to the story having been penned by none other than R.A. Salvatore. The man has never written anything I didn't flat-out love, and given the gaming pedigree of the head designer, I have no doubt this will be a contender for my favorite game of 2012.

I hope I am working by time this comes out as I would love to pick up the Signature Edition. My only gripe would be getting a signature from Curt Schilling as that would simply be pointless to me. The videos for this game have me drooling and I can't wait to play it.

It looks promising but I have a bad feeling about its save system. Hope we dont get another Skyrim.

The only thing that seems worth it to "me" is the special edition. I don't want someone's signature or a figurine darn it lol.

Once again it is just not my taste, but I'm pretty sure it is plenty of other people who will enjoy their 200$+ editions.

Because I'm certainly going to enjoy my lightning ver 2 ps3!

playing this at the expo totally left me breathless, kicks the royal sh*t out of skyrim!
id love to get the sig edition depending how much it is here.
300 US normally translates to 500 AU so its kinda a little too expensive.
just a little!
could get 2 ps3s for that price!
