Go balls-out crazy with Duke Nukem Forever's Balls of Steel Edition

You've been waiting for it since you were a little kid, and now that it's here you need as much extra, pointless swag as you can get. That's why 2K Games and Gearbox will be offering a very special "Balls of Steel" edition of Duke Nukem Forever.

This is for the real serious Duke Nukem fan, or for anyone who just wants to show appreciation for the awesome name of this limited edition bundle. In addition to the game, Balls of Steel buyers will get the following:

* Collectible bust of the greatest alien ass-kicker of all-time
* Numbered, limited-edition certificate of authenticity
* 100-page hardcover book: The History, Legacy & Legend: Duke Nukem Forever Art from the Vault
* Duke Nukem Forever postcard series
* Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem sticker
* Duke Nukem Forever collectible comic book
* Duke Nukem Forever foldable paper craft
* Duke Nukem Forever poker chips
* Duke Nukem Forever mini-card deck
* Duke Nukem Forever radioactive emblem dice

Does it make up for the years of relentless teasing and seemingly never wanting to release this mythical game? Perhaps. But it's still a hefty $100 for this limited piece of video game history.

But for those who simply cannot get enough Duke Nukem merch, check back in tomorrow, February 12, when GamesRadar will be giving away a special Duke Nukem Forever collector's item that you won't find in the Balls of Steel bundle. Check in later for more details.

For now, if you want to get your orders in ASAP for the kick-ass Balls of Steel package, it's available for pre-order at Amazon and GameStop. It will be released alongisde the standard game-only launch of May 3.

    Shame it's not coming out in the UK. That looks pretty sweet
  • Noodlesoup69 - February 14, 2011 2:51 a.m.

    I want.
  • Spybreak8 - February 12, 2011 9:29 p.m.

    Haha I'll pick it up when it's on sale on Amazon like I did the Fallout 3 CE. That art book is pretty sweet though.
  • McNeelyJ - February 12, 2011 2:19 p.m.

    I would buy if they had better box art for CE.

    *sigh* As an Australian $100 seems incredibly cheap considering that even standard edition games cost $120 here
  • Sy87 - February 12, 2011 4:56 a.m.

    That looks so sweet. If only I had the money I would so get it.
  • HumorTumor - February 12, 2011 4:42 a.m.

    just changed my pre-order to this. I was hoping for one and I got it
  • ShaneCedt - February 12, 2011 3:13 a.m.

    But dammnit which version do I get? PC or XBOX?
  • IRIsH - February 12, 2011 1:37 a.m.

    i visit everyday and i am up for some duke swag...
  • Kyo - February 12, 2011 1:33 a.m.

    Holy crap o______o I know which version I'm getting lol
  • Onepersonwithnoopinion - February 12, 2011 12:18 a.m.

    The bust seals the deal. It would look great on my mantle.
  • Japanaman - February 12, 2011 12:17 a.m.

    It's time to kick A and spend money and I'm all out of money.

    Say what you will about 2K Games, but they put together some great Collector's Editions for fantastic prices. From any other publisher this would set you back at the very least $150, $100 is a steal!
  • ricochetguro - February 11, 2011 11:31 p.m.

    Very nice, not a huge nukem fan but I might get this. With this and The Witcher 2, i'll have plenty of heads for my desk:)
  • pandapandabang - February 11, 2011 11:20 p.m.

    if this came with the original games then it'd be a no brainer ;)
  • shadowreaper72 - February 11, 2011 11:20 p.m.

    OMG!!!!!!!! EPIC!!!!!
  • Heyexclamationpoint - February 11, 2011 11:15 p.m.

    Considering it's Duke Nukem, I was kinda expecting a different kind of... *ahem* "bust".
  • mattdark - February 11, 2011 11:01 p.m.

    A 'Hefty' $100? With that amount of extra content, I think this will be money well spent, not like the special edition on Killzone 3, $100 for a scale Helghast Helmet...
  • worldclasscooper - February 11, 2011 10:59 p.m.

    DO WANT!!!!!!
  • MostAnticipated - February 11, 2011 10:39 p.m.

    OH, just in time for my tax refund.
