i noticed that the limited edition retail pc dvd on amazon comes with several items.

seeing as this is a steam game and will require installation on steam anyway, like metro 2033 last week, does the steam version already have these extras with it?

From what I hear no, so I recommend you buy retail anyhow.

Hopefully, they'll unlock them later since LE is not available in the US. I would have to pre-order it at 4 different stores. The only one I really want is the hovercraft.

I am fairly certain the limited edition stuff is the extra stuff you get for pre-ordering on steam

Using steam installation as an argument doesn't work, ALL versions of the game require steam installation, whether you got vanilla, one of the single dlc copies or limited edition.
Steam is just there for copy protection purposes
Steam has no extras, you are given unlock codes for the extra things.
If you buy via steam hoping for extra things you are going to be disappointed.

this is out in america now. so perhaps someone who has bought it from steam and played it can say if there is the Limited Edition content included, or even available as DLC to purchase from an ingame store etc?

Sorry, the DLC's are not currently available except through the pre-purchase

If you want, you should pre-order from UK retailers.

I've compared several and I found this to be the best cost-wise in terms of game cost and shipping: http://www.thehut.com/games/platforms/pc/just-cause-2-limited-edition/10071794.html

It's cheaper than retail here anyway and I can wait for it to deliver.

I walked into Walmart yesterday and picked up a copy and it came with the hovercraft. :-)

I don't know why they package all these different DLC's like this. Hopefully, they will be purchaseable later. Hovercraft looks like the best one.

I've just ordered Just Cause 2 LE from The Hut (cheapest in UK too) and its a shame Steam don't do many Special/Limited Editions, kinda like the achievements so I hope it does use Steam.

Ya, I would certainly like the option to pay extra for the special dlc. I hate the idea that i'm getting less content than other people. And, you know, buying 5 games just for the sake of dlc is... myah.
