PS3 Gets Exclusive WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 Collector’s Edition

WWE-PS3CE.jpg Normally it’s the Xbox 360 versions of third-party titles that seem to get the exclusive bonus content love, but for WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 it’s the PS3 version. THQ has announced this morning a PS3-exclusive Collector’s Edition for SD vs. Raw 2009 which is available for pre-order now at retailers nationwide and will ship November 9th with the other versions (it’s also coming out on Xbox 360, PS2, Wii, DS, PSP and mobile). At $80 — $20 more than the standard edition — the exclusive CE features a bonus Blu-ray disc with a behind-the-scenes documentary about the game and over two hours of footage from some of this year’s top SmackDown vs. Raw cross-brand matches. In North America, the CE will also come in a sweet steel cage packaging. The European and Asian releases will come bundled inside a miniature wrestling ring.

“The WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 collector’s edition for the PLAYSTATION 3 system is a tremendous opportunity for us to collaborate with our partners to produce a unique offering for our fans,” said Bob Aniello, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, THQ. “In addition to the great WWE video features, the videogame documentary will allow fans to see all of the work that goes into making their favorite fighting videogame franchise.”

“The WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 collector’s edition is a must-have for the WWE aficionado,” said Nelo Lucich, senior vice president of interactive, JAKKS Pacific. “With innovative content and packaging that looks great on collectors’ shelves, and a host of Blu-ray content including a behind-the-scenes, this collection is certain to be enjoyed by WWE fans for years to come.”
