You may recall the rumors of a Collector's Edition for God of War: Ascension already hitting European online retailers.
Well, now it can be found at Amazon.com . You can pre-order this special edition, which includes an "Exclusive 8 Kratos Statue" (totally bad-ass), a steelbook case, the official soundtrack, avatars, a dynamic theme, a code for double multiplayer XP, and a pass for "all future DLC releases."
The latter sounds an awful lot like the Rockstar Pass, which they make available for every major new release; pay a one-time fee and get all the upcoming DLC immediately upon arrival. And you know, $79.99 isn't a bad price; that's only $20 extra for all the extra goodies. Considering what you get in some Collector's Editions, that's not bad at all…and besides, it's freakin' God of War .
