How popular was the first game?

The reason i ask is i can't work out why they wouldn't release a collectors edition.
I loved the first game and i thought it was reasonably popular but the only reason i can think of is maybe it wasn't as popular as i thought and they aren't sure about the number willing to pay for a collectors edition.
Has anyone got any info to way they aren't releasing one?

I guarantee once Darksiders 2 is released you will find a greatest hits version of Darksiders 1 at all your local retailers. You can't find it now because retailers generally only keep newer games in stock.

As I recall, Darksiders 1 actually sold really well the first couple weeks. It was after the initial wave that the disappointment and complaining starting coming in.

I'll admit, the game was far from perfect, but freaking Sonic '06 got a platinum hits edition. I'd expect one to turn up sooner or later for Darksiders.

As for a collector's edition for Darksiders 2... I can't really say. But what would they include other than an art book or something? I, personally, despise Bioware's route with their ME3 CE and DLC crap, and I'd rather there be no CE at all than have that stuff up there.

thank for the info i don't like what bioware did for ME3 either but i was hoping for something like deaths mask or something, more on the lines of that. Not in game content. O well.
