Dark Souls Collector’s Edition Prepares to Die at Retail?

Have you been enjoying Dark Souls? I hope you are because there's been quite a bit of demand for the latest soul-crusher from Namco Bandai and From Software. Gamers everywhere have been hounding retailers for their pre-ordered Collector's Editions since the game's release.

Best Buy and Newegg have both been forced to offer up $20 giftcards to consumers who are getting the shaft when it comes to picking up their Collector's Edition of the game. While the limited run of Dark Souls comes with an art book and a guide you have to download in PDF format, many gamers are still demanding their due.

Honestly, I don't blame them. The Demon's Souls Collector's Edition will run a pretty penny second hand and Dark Souls appears to be in the same situation. Namco Bandai sent GameRevolution an Xbox 360 copy of the game for our review, but even we weren't given a Collector's Edition.

I've been calling all games retailers in a 20 mile radius asking about any spare Collector's Edition in stock and every time I'm asked if I preordered or not. Be prepared to die...

when you don't get a Collector's Edition.
