Just wondering if anyone knows if the Limited Edition Prima Official Strategy Guide will be available in the Uk?

I really want it 'cause it would look so good next to my codex!

Amazon Uk have it marked at currently unavailable so that makes me wonder if it ever will be available.

Just posting this so Mr Shade can ask, thanks in advance!

I have the Assassin's Creed 2 Limited Edition Prima Official Strategy Guide, so getting this is a must. I do not want it so much as a guide, but for a collector's item. The book is really nice and has interesting things in the back, like AC1 & 2 Story Summaries, feather/glyph locations, Subject 16's codes on the wall/floor of Abstergo in the first game, and some k00L interviews and concept art. But yeah, this looks epically awesome, I want to buy it lol!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I got the AC1 strategy guide, I have NO idea what i'm gonna do with the 24x36 inch map http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I have the AC2 guide on order from amazon (currently out of stock) and i'm trying to decide when would be the best time to get the brotherhood guide.

I'm just not sure how big the guide's map of rome will be compared to the codex map.

Any ideas?

Umm...

I've just ordered the 'normal edition?' guide from amazon uk before I realised there is a limited edition version

Does anyone know what will be different in the limited edition version of the guide to make it worth the extra spend?

The normal edition is 9.74 from Amazon
The limited edition is NZ$43.99 (approx 21 !!) from mighty ape

Please tell me I won't now be spending the best part of 100 on the game AND the guide http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

The only difference in AC:B is 16 pages of extra artwork and the hardcover. AC2's had some extra storyline info, etc and artwork so it was worth it if you can get it at less than full price. Amazon US is only $6 more than standard for AC:B - about the same for AC2 when I got it

Nope, In the unboxing you see the codex book flipped through and see it's an actual book, kinda like the Halo Reach Legendary Edition Novel/book/thing.
