Following the announcement of the Heavy Rain Special Edition last month, SCEE today confirmed to VG247 that the Special Edition would be a HMV exclusive in the UK. Although SCEE couldn't comment on the release date at the moment, they could at least confirm that.

The Special Edition will include the first piece of the Heavy Rain Chronicles, a brace of expanded chapters that will subsequently see release on the PlayStation Store. Chapter one will be bundled in the Special Edition package alongside the soundtrack and a dynamic new theme for the PS3 XMB.

The HMV site is listing the release as February 26th (like everyone else) and surprisingly, it's retailing for the respectable price of £40. Interested? Head over to HMV now to pre-order yourself a copy.

@#7 - As far as I know, the Spec Ed is heading to other regions as well, but if you're in the UK, you'll only be able to get it from HMV =)

I'll be getting this version for sure.

Also, the game is rated 15 by the BBFC but it has the PEGI rating of 18? WTH?

I was going to get this, until I realised it comes in one of those crappy cardboard boxes (Like inFamous). It's a shame, as it's retailing for the same price as standard editions. Looks like I'll have to fork out for the Heavy Rain Chronicles seperately.

I would love it if Sony would finally confirm the North American release date already. I mean seriously, if it IS coming in Feburary, let us know already! I need this game!

i Assume it will be the same situation in Ireland, as whatever happens in the UK usually comes to us.

i really wish is wasn't a cardboard sleeve, like the R&C one
