For a short period of time earlier today, Amazon.com had a Collector’s Edition of Dead Space 2 listed as available for pre-order. Though developer Visceral Games had already indicated last January that a special edition of the action/horror title would be forthcoming, the listing by Amazon.com was the first time the contents of this edition were shown.

Besides the regular game, the Collector’s Edition will contain a replica of the plasma cutter, the most basic weapon found in the game. Furthermore, the edition contains a CD with the soundtrack of the game, a single-use code for unlocking additional downloadable content, and a card that appears to feature concept art from the game.

It is currently unclear at what price the edition was being offered, as the posting has since been taken down by Amazon. A snapshot of the Dead Space 2 collector’s edition can be found after the jump. Dead Space 2 is being released on January 25th, 2011 and will be available on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
