Duke Nukem Forever was first announced in April of 1997. That was 14 years ago.. 3D Realms announced in 2001 that the game would be coming out ‘when it’s done’. Great. According to the seller of this dvd, this “promotional trailer DVD handed out at E3 2001 in the Gathering of Developers lot for Duke Nukem Forever.” That was 10 years ago. The game finally comes out 10 years and receives a mediocre review by game critics. I feel bad for the guy who pre-ordered this game years ago and now then picking this up.
The DVD is still brand new and un-opened. You can see the cover graphic is completely different from what they ended up using for the final product. Duke Nukem games goes for some pretty good amount. I remember a few years ago someone sold a big box copy of the original still sealed for over $400.
