Starhawk: Limited Edition and Box Art Revealed

Chuck Lacson's Avatar Posted by Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Greetings PlayStation Blogosphere! If you have been playing the Public Beta or have been tracking Starhawk online, you may have noticed that we’ve tacked on more and more reasons for you to pick up this Build & Battle epic on May 8th: a badass hero, transforming mechs, and outer space dogfights just to name a few.

Well, here’s one more reason: The Starhawk Limited Edition!

Starhawk for PS3: Limited Edition

Starting today, anyone who pre-orders Starhawk at GameStop will automatically upgrade to the Limited Edition version of the game. This version comes with over $20 worth of bonus content, including two DLC packs that contain new maps and multiplayer skins, plus sweet extras like the soundtrack and a PSN download of original Warhawk from PSone. We are confident Starhawk will be one of the best PS3 experiences you’ve ever had, so we hope this gives you even more reason to join the fun day one.

We are also happy to share our official packfront art for the first time. Behold!


This art was designed not to just give player a glimpse of the brutal Starhawk universe, but to give a little insight into our main character Emmett Graves, a man who won’t back down from a fight. We hope you dig both the packfront and that the Limited Edition makes you want to pre-order your copy. Keep tracking PlayStation.Blog for more Starhawk news leading up to launch…or just jump into the Starhawk Beta! Starting today, you’ll be able to get free early access codes on both GameStop’s and PlayStation’s Facebook pages.

Starhawk Limited Edition Contents

Gamestop only, it is kind of lame. I wish it also on Amazon

Sweeeeeeet, I hope the soundtrack is delicious

@KGH – GameStop has treated customers badly for years. Personally, they crossed the line when they started removing onLive coupons from sealed boxes. Do a search, it was official policy.

You know what, that coupon was part of the product, regardless if you knew it or not. By removing it, GameStop was stealing.

Furthermore, GameStop tries to have these special editions exclusive to them because they can’t compete on service. I vote with my money, so they no longer get any of mine directly.

@ #55

Yeah I agree, that was messed up.

@KGH – Remember that comments with links go to a mod first, so my post may not be #55 at some point in the future. They do take a long time to moderate (multiple hours) but they keep their place in the comment order.

GameStop’s policies have earned the ire of many gamers. It doesn’t surprise me that over a quarter of the comments are asking if this is a GameStop exclusive or asking for something similar on Amazon.

Heck, I’ll pay extra if need be, just to get it from Amazon, BestBuy or other retailer.

LBI – I’ll give you more money than you’re asking, provided you can ship it without GameStop. It doesn’t get more clear than that.

Mr. Chuck Lacson, can you please answer.

Is Gamestop the ONLY retailer that will be selling the Starhawk Limited Edition?

Thank You!

Give me a collector’s edition with a Dylan Jobe skin and I will be the happiest bear in town.

I have been digging the beta and every time I play it I get really strong urges to load up old faithful, AKA Warhawk. This is another game that I will be picking up at some point but sadly will be missing the launch. Thank you to everyone who has worked on this project because you guys actually listen to you customers.

I hope this gets extended to Amazon. I am already preordered through them because I have gift card credit there. I think it should be rewarded to all those that preorder regardless of who they preorder with, but thus is the politics of marketing agreements…

F Gamestop, show Amazon some love Sony.

Back in 2011, I suggested they include the PS1 Classic Warhawk.
They did, and it just made my day. <3

Oh yeah!

@ Guardian_Bob

No, yeah I felt the same way. If it werent for my local gamestop actually becoming more friendly over the years, and other things like online passes (T_T), I’d still be boycotting. But I must admit,with promotions like these, my judgement can be….swayed

Weak, I was hoping for a Starhawk figurine.

Good thing I already pre-ordered. Now I get even more stuff. That’s what is up. Yeah Buddy.

DRAGON929292 said:

@KGH- Another screw up that gamestop has is that when you trade in a game, you get like 5 dollars and then they put it on sale for like 15 dollars more. Its a rip off. I wish that they would give you more for the game. What I like about them is that they have warhawk for only 5 dollars in the pre-ordered section.

Definitely going to preorder now. From the minute I saw the Starhawk reveal, it looked like this was the game of my dreams. The beta is living up to those impressions, and I can’t wait for the full release. I’m preordering this Limited Edition as soon as possible to show my support. Come on LightBox and Santa Monica, show us what you got!

At first I was on the fence about getting Starhawk. But now im convinced, and I just pre ordered it. Hope Starhawk is incredible when it goes gold! And I hope gamestop doesn’t screw me over by giving me normal copy or making me pay extra.


February 8th, 2:07 pm

The box art looks awesome! I have my Rift Miner skin, Starhawk t-shirt, and soon the Limited Edition :P

Now all that we need is for the flight modes to fixed and to tune up the beta some more ;)

Ive already pre-orederd STARHAWK in November, the week after MW3 was released. When I pre-orderd Mw3 they screwed me up. They didnt get what I deserved for pre ordering. SUpposed to get poster and downloadable content. I really hope they dont do this for STARHAWK. If they do im going to be pissed off. Does it even count if I already pre-orderd it or did it have to be on Tuesday?
