Wear your gaming heart on your console sleeve with these special editions

Zelda 3DS Bundle £165 (out 25 November)

It's confirmed – this limited edition Hyrule-styled 3DS from Nintendo will become reality this month. The bundle marks the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series and includes The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. For the sophisticated portable gamer.

Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 Bundle £225

One to hide when grandmothers and impressionable youngsters visit, we wouldn't want to meet this Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 in a dark alley. The perfect console to get you in the mood for running straight at giant monster bosses. Hellish roars optional.

Minecraft Sony Ericsson Xperia Play c.US$1500

If you stumble across one of these lying around, get it straight to your shelter. A handful of these limited edition Xperia Plays were given away by Mojang and another sold for US$1500 on eBay. Now that Minecraft has hit iOS as well as Android, it might be cheaper to design your own blocky iPhone case.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Xbox 360 Bundle £270

With this MW3 bundle you get more than just a roughed up metallic paint job – it also comes complete with custom sounds and avatars, a copy of the game and a one month sub to Xbox LIVE Gold.

Yakuza Dragon 3 PS3 (Japan only)

Sorry to tease but the PS3 is lagging pretty far behind the Xbox 360 in the limited edition stakes – and we're sure that with the wonders of international delivery, Yakuza fans can get a slice of this. I mean, who wouldn't want a dragon on their console?
