Pre-order Mirror's Edge, and it's in the bag

Kevin Kelly

Mirror's Edge, the upcoming game from EA's DICE studio, is what you'd get if you crossed Johnny Mnemonic with the Kevin Costner epic The Postman and then multiplied it by Portal and divided it by the Y.T. character from Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash.

You play a Runner named Faith, and she runs information in her faithful little satchel to and fro in a sprawling, futuristic metropolis. If you pre-order the game from GameStop, you can get your mitts on that very same bag. It has seven compartments, comes in eye-blasting yellow, and "fits your PS3, Xbox 360, or laptop for gaming on the run."

Not too shabby. If publishers keep putting out things like this and the Fallout 3 Survival Edition, which comes with a replica of the Pip-Boy 3000, then how long until Resident Evil ships with a replica of the T-Virus in a collectible plexiglas case? We'd hit it.
