Catherine gets sexy pre-order pack as 'Valentine's gift' to UK gamers

Catherine may have been out everywhere else for literally months now, but us UK gamers are about to get a taste of her ample charms. As if to apologise for the delay, she's brought along a special bonus pack for everyone who pre-orders and buys the game on February 10 from GAME stores. We're certain she probably wants something in return, but let's have a look anyway.

Firstly, there's a CD containing music from the game, which is... perfectly listenable. Also included in the pack is a limited edition art book containing pictures of the titular (sorry) Catherine.

Incidentally, there will be two versions of the game proper at launch - the regular one and a 'Stray Sheep' pack which contains a Rave T-Shirt like the one that Vincent wears in the game, two Stray Sheep bar-themed coasters and a Catherine poster that is exclusive to this edition, all served in a pizza delivery box from the Stray Sheep Bar as packaging. That'll set you back £54.99 (EUR 69.99) while the regular version will cost £39.99 EUR 59.99, but you'll need to buy from GAME to get the pre-order bonus, which is slightly cheaper than RRP.

One last thing that made us giggle, though - the press release that announced this pre-order pack contained the following gem of contradiction:

The artwork in the booklet is not available anywhere else, the same applies to the music tracks from the game that the limited CD will contain.

A CD of music tracks that you can't get anywhere else except somewhere else. Brilliant. Oh well - at least we can confirm the game is worth buying, as our review will attest.

    I want this on PC so badly. Lets get a Dark Souls-esq petition going for it.

    as much I'd love it, the excitement's kind-of gone, so I don't think this'll be something I'll buy, especially since the stray sheep version seems to be just as expensive as the US's special edition, just with less content :/

    hey guys I didn't understand the last joke. can someone explain it? [I don't speak english very well]

    Just that the game music is on the CD, exclusively. You know, forgetting it's also in the game.

    I know that amazon are doing the 'stray sheep' edition too, but they dont have the book and cd.

    I imported this the first time around from the US...a release in EU a half year later? With nothing (much) added? Not even Japanese voice track? Seriously?

    Wait...So we have to go to the STORE to buy this? I may have gone to the store to buy Hello Kitty Sexy Adventures. But this is a little too much.

    I know they're owned by the same company, but I think this is just for GAME stores. Sorry if I didn't make that clear first time round.

    Pre-ordered. (At least in my mind, will pre-order at Gamestation).
