Whats up with the PC collectors edition of Assassins Creed?

Its missing the bonus DVD, comic and whatever else.

The only thing it came with was the tin box. I might as well have bought the normal version.

I am -never- going preorder anything from ubi again. I'm seriously thinking about never buying anything period.

Whats going to be done about this?

No. I dont particularly feel like making an international toll call to complain.

I'd rather write it down in the forum so other people dont make the same mistake I did.

I guess I'm assuming here that officials actually read this. Who knows. I guess I'm assuming a lot considering there isnt even an official email address.

Well, the closest to 'official' you're going to get here is CouchZombie or Raide (the forum managers). Try sending one of them a PM. They may be able to get in touch with a higher-up who can get you what you paid for.

Though I bet they'd prefer if you try calling first.

But I guess if you don't want to get what you paid for, that's your prerogative.

I didn't get one in my limited edition box either. But I've sent it back anyway because the game didn't even work :P

This has to be the worst launch since Bioshock.

Well, at least 2K actually APOLOGISED on the front of their bioshock page, and did something about it when that container of figurines got smashed.

the pre order email said only the first 100 people would get the extra items is it not possible you just missed the 100? as if alot of people pre orderd this it would be hard to get in that first 100. alot of promotions like that are made to lure people in on the insentive of a reward but limiting the reward so they get alot of pre orders and only have to give out as many extras as they want.

Well I purchased the Headset Edition and I did not even get the Game in a Box? Just in a paper sleeve with absolutely nothing more then the Headset (which is good BTW). No manaul no case to store it in, absolutely Zilch!

Well so much for being a LOYAL customer base of gameplayers......I caould at least expect a case to store it in and a manual? WTF should I have to use my printer, my ink and my paper to read how to play it on the PC! I feel just as ripped off as all of you...........The XBox 360 version I bought a while back (the Collectors Edition) had so much more inulding the Figurine which I still have..........So disspointed to say the least!

I know it's probably not as nice as a real manual, but once the is installed on your PC, a pdf manual is available.

I dont know what email you're talking about. I did not order this from Ubisoft directly.

There was no mention anywhere of a 100 order limit.

I talked on the phone to the store I ordered it from - and they said it was a supplier screw up. The DS release of this game was not affected. And I still got the tin box, just not the DVD and comic.

Anyway, I'm over it now. Ive just decided I wont be passing Ubi any more money.

If you didn't pre order from Ubi, then maybe saying this in your post may have caused some confusion:
