Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Collector’s Edition

The collector’s edition of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will include an awesome looking “High frequency plasma lamp” as well as the game itself (in a metal case) and its soundtrack. The lamp includes a sword down the middle of the glass and the name of the game glowing along the bottom of it. If you ask us it’s pretty kick-ass. Konami hasn’t set a price for the collector’s edition yet.
