The lights are on
Sony has announced two different, upgraded versions of Infamous: Second Son. The limited edition is available to anyone that pre-orders, and the collector's edition gives you some physical and in-game goodies.
The limited edition comes with a foil game cover and a DLC pack for free. The content, Cole's Legacy, details what happens between the end of Infamous 2 and Second Son. Those that complete the story arc get access to Cole's jacket.

The collector's edition will include unique cover art, a replica of protagonist Delsin's beanie, eight pins that Delsin wears in game, a Department of Unified Protection (DUP) patch, vinyl decals, an in-game "legendary" vest, and the Cole's Legacy DLC.
Retailers list the collector's edition at $79.99. Infamous: Second Son is slated for a February 2014 PlayStation 4 release. For more on that game, check out our coverage from the June 2013 issue.

Our TakeAs a fan of the Infamous series (they are the only two platinum trophies I have on PS3), I'm extremely excited for Second Son. I bought the Hero Edition of Infamous 2 and love the statuette of Cole and the sling bag that came with it.
I'm a little disappointed by this Collector's Edition, and while I applaud the inclusion of physical collectibles, it would be nice to put a Delsin figure next to Cole on my shelf. The limited edition offer, on the other hand, is a great value. If you're the least bit interested in Infamous: Second Son, the free DLC and slightly enhanced cover art might be worth the pre-order, as Sony suggests that the supplies will be limited.

I am so getting the collector's edition. For $80 and not a cent more.
I don't understand something... There is a special edition too? And also there is another photo going around that collecters edition has his vest instead of his beanie... They have the same layout as the collection edition picture shown
and it looks like a legitamate picture
I already have the game pre-ordered so i hope i get bumped up to the limited edition.
not much of a collectors edition....
Whenever I do get a PS4, Infamous Second Son is going into it pronto. I'm sure that the extra DLC is going to get sold separately eventually like all DLC is, but the limited edition is mighty nice for people getting it at launch. Super excited to see how Cole might fit into Delsin's story. . . maybe as a villain?
I want that beanie.
I'm with you Mike, except inFamous 2 is the only Platinum I have. Not gonna lie, I really want the collector's edition just for the hat. My favorite hat was a lot like that but it tore recently. If I could get the limited edition plus just the hat though that'd be great...
I'll just be getting the regular version. None of this crap is worth it.
Does anyone else find the CE cover for Second Son to be rather bland in comparison to the Limited Edition?
well, im not sure, but I guess i'll go LE.
I will be picking up the limited edition for sure. Looks really cool.
Infamous Second Son this Super Good and Evil interesting. Too Classic infamous 1&2 in ps3. I can't lot money Buy Ps4 and infamous Second Son my have ps3 infamous 1&2 better Big map.
I don't care for the pins and beanie. I also like the cover art for the Limited edition a lot more than the collectors edition. So I'll probably get the Limited Edition, hopefully I can go to the midnight premiere!
i'll be getting it...
Well, then, Limited Edition it is then!
I was gonna pre-order this anyway, so it's nice to get a little perk. I'm sure I will rock Cole's jacket for a little nostalgia. ;)
This game looks very good.
Limited is what I'm doing. Who cares about a beanie, pins, and a patch.
