GOTY Collector's Edition Strategy Guide... hardcover?

Is it going to be hardbound like the Collector's Edition guide for the original Fallout 3 release?

If it is, I'll probably just take it in and trade it in this week when I pick up Demon's Souls.

This is one game I might actually but a strat guide for. This is saying something considering I own a rediculous amount of games and have always used online guides. Would this really be harcover though? Ive only seen paperback guides in stores.

Also, what kind of stuff is in a guide? Im assuming quest walkthoughs but other then that im not sure. 30 bucks sounds like quite a bit.

* Flowchart Choices - Decision trees for all missions including all major karmic choices and their effects. Know what you're in for!
* Wasteland tour - Every major ammo and health cache, Bobblehead, Skill Book, Unique Weapon, Weapon Schematic, Mini Nuke and More!
* Index of the Wasteland - The guide is fully indexed to help you find what you need when you need it!
* Exclusive Hardcover! — Durable collector’s cover to survive the trials of the game!
* Numbered Editions — Every volume of our limited collector’s edition is numbered! Once they’re gone you won’t find it again!
* Large size Poster — A huge map poster to keep you oriented in the wasteland.

Well, the original Fallout 3 Collector's Edition guide is a hardcover one, I just want to make sure this one is, too before I get rid of the old one.

There are actually more and more guides that do have a special edition that comes as a hardcover, the Resident Evil 5 guide comes to mind.

you can't trade in the old guide anywhere in the UK most game shops don't take game guides, so i am stuck with the old one, only option is to use the fallout wiki for the DLC parts at least that is free.
