I have yet to see anything on a collectors edition for North America. Does anyone know if one will be released here? And if not, where might we get the soundtrack then?

I do get a 5 Pound discount if i order from England, but the shiping cost would kill me.

There will not be a Collector's Edition release for North America ... you will have to buy the CE from the UK or France if you want it.

The soundtrack will be (or at least better be) available through the US Ubisoft online store.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif No Collector's Edition in NA??? Looks like Ubi dropped the ball again. Maybe they're just on summer holiday?

Note to Marketing: Me... fan. CE = More Money. More money = more $$$ for Ubi. Me willing to pay more money for more goodies. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

And playing cards??? With all the critters in Haven, they come up with playing cards?

What no CE??!?!? I hope I can get the CE in Australia. Is that stretching the meat a bit much?!?
Well we've always got the UK boxes - maybe we'll get the UK collectors as well?

Actually there will be one, I email Ubi and they said not at the moment, but I diffenitly know there will be one.

here's the email: <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Thank you for contacting the Ubisoft Store Customer Care.

Regretfully, at the moment the special edition of Myst IV is only available in Europe and we do not know if a North American release date is scheduled. We invite you to check back with the store from time to time for more information as if becomes available.

there was one for myst 3 and I positive their will be one for Myst 4 we might just have to wait a bit longer

Well, I want to know for sure soon, as i am so tempted to get the one from europe. The cover looks like a book! How cool is that! Did it really take them ten years to realize that the covers should look like books?

Ah man, i want a CE for US. I got the CE for myst 3. It was great getting the music, pewter figure, and the game all in one package.

So why are the powers that be not wanting to give US a CE. Its bad enough there giving us a lame packaged box, but now they think we dont want a collecters edition.

I would pay for a CE. Definately. But not if it comes out after the regular one, unless I have some crazy reason not to buy it on the first day it's out.
Shutting out the Americans is so not cool. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif Hold the Phone a sec .... didn't the ORIGINAL game come from a company located within the United States?? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

No way can a foreign power not give the U.S. something they are making available to the rest of the world! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

You know something .... how come EVERYBODY has to have a finger in everyone else's pie .... what ever happened to the days where a compooter game was thought up of -- programmed -- re-programmed -- tested -- retested -- marketed -- produced -- published -- financed -- and distributed BY ONE FREAKIN' COMPANY!?!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

WHO OWNS UBISOFT ?? They aren't AMERICAN ?? and WHY do they deem it necessary to offer the rest of the world a collector's edition of MYST IV instead of the USA?? Where is CYAN in all this mess ??? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

Ubisoft is French.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

That's actually not the point. The point is that US Marketing has a limited budget (Myst and Uru are the BEST SELLING Adventure games, which are still very low compared to other games, like shooters), and they must use that budget to get the best exposure and orders for the game.

As such, they weighed the cost of creating and selling a Collector's Edition in the US. This has proved VERY popular and generated a lot of sales in Europe, where Adventure games sell much better, but the cost to do so in the US won't be worth the final return. Also, the willingness for retailers to put TWO more Myst boxes on their shelves isn't there like it is in Europe.

Fans in the US need to demand Adventure games, and this collector's edition. Until then, it will be sold in Europe and there's a chance that places like Canada and Australia will see it, but until it's proven in the US it won't be offered.

I'm sorry about it... please keep an eye out for them in online stores and Ebay. And be sure to write to the Ubisoft store and tell them that you want it. Maybe that will help!

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Well dad-gummit Khatie ... then how about UbiSoft offering Collector Edition MYST IV packages to those US customers WHO REQUEST THEM!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Ebay ?? OHMYHEAVENS!! I wouldn't trust E-Bay as far as I could throw their headquarters building -- that WHOLE operation is one gigantic rip-off machine in my opinion!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Since you raised the topic ... HOW COME adventure games like MYST IV are more popular in Europe than in the US?? Frankly speaking, I thought most of Europe followed the US in what people like and dislike.... it would seem that should apply to compooter games .... but I guess Euro people are just " different " anyway .....

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif I STILL THINK UBISOFT should MAKE AVAILABLE a collector's edition to ANY U.S. resident who wants one!!

..... and no one has answered my question as TO WHERE CYAN is involved in this mess !! Did the Miller brothers TOTALLY sell the MYST name and franchise?? Do they not have a say in ANYTHING that UBISOFT does with regards to MYST?? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

From what I have heard Cyan hasn't "sold" the rights persay. You see when Cyan and UbiSoft got together to do Uru part of the aggreement was that since Cyan would be working to make new ages and such for Uru:Live that UbiSoft would have the rights to make the Myst titles until like 2007/8 I think. However Uru:Live didn't happen but that part of there aggreement is still in effect so UbiSoft will be making the games under the Myst titles for the next 4 years or so (although considering how long it takes to make a good Myst game that would really only amount to 1 other Myst game).

Myst 4 has really been in production with UbiSoft for about 3/4 years already while Cyan was working on Uru. Hope this helps some and please correct me Khatie if any of this is incorrect!

And so are South Americans. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif And Asians, and Africans...

Really, they're totally different cultures with very different preferences.

Here in Brazil, those Hollywood action movies drenched in blood rarely hit the theaters anymore. People want European, South American, Asian movies, which focus much more on an original story rather than the old hero-shoots-the-bad-guys action movies.

Man...I love freedom and all that other stuff I get, but c'mon. Obviously I should move to europe :P

Hmm... Freedom of Speech.... M4 CE....Freedom of SPeech... M4 CE.

I wouldn't be talking much if I was playing M4. Or spending time on politics...

It really is getting kind of creepy. I've never felt like a minority before, but whenever I log onto Until Uru, everyone who uses voice has a thick exotic accent. It makes it feel even MORE like an underground expedition.

A deck of cards http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif and the game's soundtrack http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I don't like to play cards, so I'll get the game and the soundtrack separately when they both come out. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
