    Survival for me.

    Might want to check the contents of the post-pandemonium Sal. I dont see the artbook listed on the image.

    My wish came true!

  • Bloodios

    But… no poster and DualShock 3 skin…

      It’s because Europe is cooler than us. ='(

      • Bloodios

        Thank Heaven that the PS3 is region-free so that I can always choose to import, and since I’m already spending big for these Editions, there is no reason to hold back just because of import fee.

          Got Ellie Edition pre-ordered already. Buying the Artbook and the statue separately.

    I think the Survival Edition is the best one to get. The artbook is probably really nice. I’m going to get it and see if someone sells the statue as a standalone on ebay. That happens pretty often.
