    "Mirror's edge" - correct translation

    Hi guys.
    There is a computer game, with name "Mirror's edge".
    And I doubt, what is the right translation to Russian?
    I think, that authors means mirror glass, and edge of this glass - "край зеркала".
    But, Wikipedia show another translation - "mirror" as mirrored object, and sharp edge of this object - "Грань отражений".

    Where is the truth?

    I think the "край/торец зеркала" would suffice to utter the meaning, but if you're looking for a literary translation, "грань отражений" is the best.

    "Hi guys.
    There is a computer game, with the name "Mirror's edge" (better say "called Mirror Edge")
    And I'm not sure, what is the right translation to Russian? ("I doubt" is я сомневаюсь, "I'm not sure" - я не уверен... more appropriate in this case)
