The Blizzard news just keeps rolling today, with Blizzard having announced that Diablo 3 will now have a Collector’s Edition, and so it is, and it is GOOD.
You may not be able to clearly see what the Collector’s edition includes from the picture above so below is a breakdown of the delightful bounty found within this chest. So with each Collector’s Edition you get:
DIABLO III PC/MAC GAME
The full version of the Diablo III game on DVD-ROM.
DIABLO SKULL AND 4GB USB SOULSTONE
Shackle your PC into unholy slavery with this 4GB USB soulstone and Diablo skull base. The USB also includes full versions of Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction so you can retrace the sinister path of the Dark Wanderer once more.

DIABLO III SOUNDTRACK

I’m slightly disappointed that we don’t get one of these cool barbarian statues with it, but the Diablo Skull and USB is a great touch.
Unfortunately the release date, RRP and any other information regarding the CE has yet to be released but you can head on over to the official Diablo 3 site and take closer looks at all the goodie you can get.
The Collector’s Edition page also came with a gloriously rendered teaser trailer which you can see here.
