As per Kotaku, the Fable II Collector’s Edition will no longer include the shiny box, the five Fate cards, or the figure of Hobbe. This is allegedly due to “supply chain problems” that Lionhead could never have anticipated prior to three weeks until release. My thoughts are that either not enough people pre-ordered the CE or a ton cancelled their pre-orders after last week’s ridiculousness.
At any rate, those folks who still want to give Lionhead more of their money will now pay USD $70 for the Fable II game disc (possibly minus multiplayer co-op!), a ‘Making-of’ DVD, TBA Bonus in-game content via XBox live, ‘The Hall of the Dead’ Dungeon, ‘The Wreckager’ Legendary Cutlass Weapon, and the Halo Spartan armor and energy sword.
We all have to tend our own virtual gardens on this one, but I think I’ve made my opinion gnome.
