i suspect one reason why the Japanese one is so awesome is because Rising is a PS3 exclusive in Japan, so they have more money to spend on the collectors edition because they only have to make one version.
also, the regular non CE version of Rising on the Konami Style site come with the Gray Fox DLC. im wondering if its a pre-order thing or if its a Konami Style thing.
yup. they cut the 360 version in Japan because no one in Japan owns a 360.
If the US/UK doesn't get the Gray Fox DLC I will be extremely mad.
we will. but it will probably be day-one $1-$2 DLC.
$1-2? I'm gonna go ahead and say at least $5.
