Wow! That's a super good idea!!! Give it a tin casing just like Splinter Cell:Chaos Theory and I'd buy it for sure.

any game i'm really interested in i'm willing to buy a special edition. if a game is looking to be a AAA title, i'll buy it to show support for the developer. i'm getting the gears of war special edition, and probably the splinter cell double agent one. i'll get the halo 3 one and really any special edition of a game that looks really good. i'll definatly buy the special edition of AC if it comes with one.

I'd defintely by a Collector's Edition of "Assassin's Creed" (if Ubisoft releases a Collector's Edition, that is.) If they do, I hope it is packed with a boatload of extra features (all of the trailers: from the E3 2006 Trailer all the way to the Official Trailer... the "Making of Assassin's Creed", ETC.)

In short, I'd defintely by a Collector's Edition of "Assassin's Creed" if Ubisoft decides to release it.

But we can only hope that Ubisoft will release a Collector's Edition of "Assassin's Creed."

09-11-2006, 07:03 PM
With a game as big as Assassin's Creed, I'm sure Ubi will give us a CE.

09-21-2006, 10:04 AM
if the extras are only like concept art or behind the scenes stuff i probably wouldn't buy it.

09-21-2006, 11:42 AM

YES!!!. I love those collectors editions.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

id rather buy the collectors edition than the original game because collectors edition always has more stuff in it.

Most collectors editions do include bonus features in the game for only 5-10$ more.

09-22-2006, 01:33 PM
If a Limited edition is released in Europe I will be among the first ones to order it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Oo limited edition totally http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Shadow of the Colossus limited edition type cover will be kewl with the cards and slideyslide and everything lol.

09-22-2006, 02:52 PM
I'd just want a soundtrack to come with the special edition. I LOVE the music the make in games, and that is my one problem with God of War: the distribution of the Soundtrack. It was only available to American buyers, and it didn't even have all the tracks...ahh well.

Still, a special edition just has to offer a soundtrack for me to buy it.

09-22-2006, 08:30 PM
I never get collector's editions of games, so I have to ask: What extras are usually included?

09-22-2006, 08:41 PM
Usually a extra mission or 2. or a secret area that you couldnt get to in the orginal but in the CE it is available. Stuff like that is usually included in CE

09-22-2006, 08:54 PM
That isn't all, is it?

09-22-2006, 10:05 PM

it varies.

Some include:
Art Books
Gameplay tips
Exclusive weapons/armor/missions
Behind-the-scenes footage
History Channel Documentary on the Third Crusade (I've watched it, and if it came with an AC CE...Let's just say INSTANT buy)
Developer Diaries

And alot more. But it really depends on the game.

09-22-2006, 10:21 PM
Some of those sound awesome. It would still depend on what the AC CE had, though.

09-23-2006, 09:04 PM
oh yeah, i probably would, but it would really depend a lot on what came with it.

09-23-2006, 09:48 PM
Yes, I would buy a collectors addition depending on the extras I get. I have a feeling by how Ubi. gave goodies when you preordered POP:WW and POP:TTT they will do the same for A.C.

Hopefully, they will have a special collectors and pre-order option both to get extra stuff. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Price of game: $59.00
$5.00 preordering (that is usually the price of preordering games I've preordered)
+ $10.00 for collector's edition (if there is one)

That is possibly $74 on a game. That could be a good way to Ubi. to earn money. If they do both. If not, a Collector's edition will be $69, and pre-ordering $64. I however, will probably not pre-order unless I get something in return. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

There are some games that I wouldn't bother getting a Collector's Edition for. The Collector's Edition of Oblivion, however, was a must-have.

Mass Effect, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Assassin's Creed are all games that I wouldn't think twice about getting the Collector's Edition for.

So there's my answer. Assassin's Creed is already shaping up to be one of the greatest games ever, and I would buy the CE without hesitation.

Strangely enough, the only thing I want for sure, should the CE become a reality, is the infamous metal case. Those're just too damn cool.

09-24-2006, 03:38 PM
Depends on what was given with it. For instance:

I recently pre-ordered the Collector's Edition for Neverwinter Nights 2. I hadn't planned on getting that version, but I saw that it came with a cloth map, some rings, in-game items, and an art book. Since I loved looking at the maps that came with Morrowind and Oblivion, in-game items help, and I love looking at artwork for games (being an artist myself), I decided to go ahead and get that one. If it had just been a tin box and a coin, I would never have bought it.


09-24-2006, 07:56 PM
Yes I would.

09-25-2006, 08:47 PM
i wonder what will make it so diffrent from the normal version. (i voted yes) Im still gonna buy it but what could the collectors edition hold? Anyone wanna take a guess?

09-25-2006, 11:08 PM
I like to get collector's editions. But only if they decided not to shaft PC players out of one like they did with the Splinter Cell Double Agent LE. It's not really that big a deal, though.

09-28-2006, 09:02 AM
If there's art in it I'm getting it! OOOooooOO artwork, mmmmmmm...

10-16-2006, 04:37 AM

I dunno it would have to have more than just artwork or something like the DMC 3 one was great because it had extra things you could unlock and different dante outifts to play as maybe if its something like that or has some stuff for xbox live extra<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Im going to buy it no matter what, but im really hoping to see maps, extras for in game play, and footage about how they made the game.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

There are exceptions to everything, nothing is absolute.

10-24-2006, 05:29 PM
Depending on what the Collector Editon offers and that is if there is one, I won't mind getting it. Might be usefull, who knows http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
