Marvel vs Capcom 2 Scores Retail "Collector Edition"

Marvel vs Capcom 2Sony PlayStation 3 owners who enjoy special collector-type editions of video games will surely jump for a retail box of Marvel vs Capcom 2 goodies.  While the game itself remains a downloadable re-release for the PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360, Joystiq has word of a special PS3 edition to be sold at GameStop that includes a voucher code and a collection of other small random goodies for a mere $5 premium.

According to the product listing, the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Retail Pack will release on August 13 for $19.99 ($5 more than the cost of the game) and include a redemption code (obviously), a DVD case, a disc containing exclusive wallpapers and other media, an 8-page manual, one month of free access to Marvel Digital Comics, and 2,000 Capcom Unity points, which are used on the Capcom site to participate in auctions.

More extra fluff?  Sure.  Fairly priced fluff that'll generate a few minutes of interest?  You bet.  It's tempting, but nothing beats the convenience of just buying the game itself via PSN and being done with it.  No visit to GameStop, no hassles with vouchers.  But on the other hand, there's fairly priced fluff to be had.  Decisions, decisions...  Of course, the true winner here is GameStop, as they get another product to sell in stores that would otherwise not be available from them.
