Thread: ACIII Editions announced! EMEA & NA [Updated 8/29] | Forums

    Yeah, it is best to be patient because the game's release is still a long way to go. It would be kinda bad to just give North America/United States a Revelations' style Signature Edition when the third game takes place during the American Revolution.

    My exs lawyer used comic sans, he was a lousy lawyer. I used to love getting communication from him, i would copy his format right down to the font and send the reply, usually in a polite form of - go f your selves-, i doubt he ever got the joke!

    I asked and made the statement on AC's Facebook page regarding the showing or confirmation of a NA CE. This was the official response I got from them...

    Assassin's Creed We hear you, we just want to make sure that everything is perfect... I'm sure you understand. AC3 is the biggest thing we've ever done, so we have to come correct at every step in the process.4 hours ago ·

    Seems to indicate we're getting something. What and when would still be nice to know.

    Definitely, no one should expect high quality from most of these statues found in vid game CEs. They're not gonna put a $350 statue in a CE that is only worth slightly over $100 on launch day. For the Connor statue it's safe to assume that the quality will - at best - share the same quality as the previous ones from f4f and attakus. That means it'll be made out of cheap pvc and have a horrible face sculpt (among other things). But if those were an issue than most of us wouldn't even consider buying the Freedom Edition or at least wait for it to go on ebay to skip the premium price.

    On the other hand, Ubisoft did try to release a higher quality statue but the results are still less than satisfactory. This is in regards to the Ubicollectibles "Ezio's Fury" which costs more than SSC premium formats, it's smaller, made out of more fragile material, has a higher edition size, and has poor paint apps. I guess I'm just trying to say that if Ubi ain't willing to satisfy a collector who pays $375+ for a statue they definitely won't try to deliver with a statue that's included in a CE.

    That's the same with the Nathan Drake statue: Sony wasn't willing to spend time and money to give loyal fans a high quality statue and instead commisioned SSC to sculpt a cheapo statue. Therefore I don't believe that statue accurately represents what SSC really stands for: high-quality statues.

    It would be nice if they did at least give us an approximate date as to when they planned to announce a CE. But at least Ubi plans on giving us an CE, I wonder though, what is perfect?

    Hey guys, as I said in a previous post on here, I took a picture of the AC3 poster I mentioned. It's nothing big like a CE or anything but at least we may get a lil more than million dollar box for AC3 lol
    (Funny that actual Gstop site it does not mention this): For Preordering you get a bonus mission+weapon so it may be like from one the CE missions or the special edition from first page?
    -This pertains to US gamestops (probably)

    From what you said about the post that Ubi made on their Facebook page, I hope they give us a great CE and not another Signature Edition or a Special Edition. I received the Steelbook case when I pre-ordered and I also put $10 on it so I can just call GameStop up to roll it over onto a CE.

    I mean companies can call it whatever they want. but the truth is? It's just a standard edition with a couple minor dlc's. just an incentive to pre-order.. I mean when you pre-ordered Dragon Age Origins it came with a few added dlc's like the stone prisoner and some additional weapons. But until DA II came out I never heard of the "Signature edition" it was a sham.. just a standard edition with pre order bonuses you get for ordering from game stop. It's just a play on words. special edition... signature edition ect. they just jazzed up the name of the standard pre order editions, It's pretentious .. I believe with DA II we got the black market add on and a couple other minor things. and they billed it as getting 20 dollars worth of content at the regular price. lol. But honestly it was no different than what I received as the standard edition for pre ordering LA Noire and Red Dead Redemption. Rockstar just stated as a bonus for ordering from gamestop you receive these add ons.lol minus the pretentious rhetoric.

    Now we have the "signature editions. or special editions ect. Man why not just say what it is? game stop pre order exclusive. or best buy Pre order exclusive ect. Why not call it what it is? a standard edition with pre order bonuses.. why try to mask it with some name that implies it's special? Sometimes game companies crack me up. Anyway time will tell what NA get's I am not going to complain much regardless of how the cards fall.. It simply is what it is...
