Wait a sec, so you have a steel book, do you get the game (probably not, just askin') or just a steel case?

Yeah, they give the game out 8 months early for people who buy the steel book edition...

You just get the steel book. When the game comes out, you get it in a normal case.

Isn't it kind of early for pre-ordering the game?

Is it a Gamestop exclusive or can you get it by ordering at Ubishop? Because i don't live in the US.

I also got mine last week, Wednesday I think. Yes I think it's a little early to pre-order the game especially with no collector's edition announced or pre-order bonus (excluding the steel case and assuming there is some dlc content as usual) but I think pre-ordering this early is a good idea so you can get the collectible case. They will be gone for sure by October probably even earlier, like around now. Plus if you plan on pre-ordering it anyway you might as well do it now and get the case before it's gone. I know down the road people will be asking if there's a way to get a case nearing October.

Best Buy is also offering the steel case, although it appears it might just ship with the game if you order online. I did read that they have it available in stores now though if there is any near.

No.

Well to me it is, 'specially since they haven't announced all the editions yet.
I must waste my money in the most spectacular way...

Well yeah me too, but not everyone is going to buy the special editions and depending on where you pre-order you may be able to upgrade.

I got mine at Futureshop (it's like Bestbuy.) I just walked in the store and they had about 30 steelbook cases on a shelf. And Mario, it's never too early for AC.

Upgrading your purchase is a pain in the... arse.

Furthermore:

I totally agree with this.

I basically just did it to get the case. Since there was about 30 of them still sitting there, I doubt the game will be sold out, especially since I'm going to drive there (I'll have my license by then :)) on the day of release and get the best CE I can get. Best belated birthday present to myself ever.

Not to early to preorder there was only 3 cases left. i usually wait for a few more months before i preorder but i wanted that case. my buddy who works at Gamestop said he took hundreds of preorder's. and that's usually the numbers for cod preorder's.

It's still not too early since I only put 5 bucks down and even if I had paid 60 bucks I could always just upgrade to the CE whenever it's announced.

I pre-ordered mine on Friday, but I don't know how many steelbooks were left. I love it so much that I can't stop staring at it. I asked the guy there if it were possible to upgrade to a better edition if one were to come out which he said yes to. Some people here all ready confirmed that, but I like making double sure. :) I am planning on upgrading if and when another edition comes out. I'm saving up as we speak.

If you live in Canada then we can buy the steelbooks from either Best Buy or Future Shop. I haven't been to EB games yet, but they will probably have it as well.

Haha, the Future Shop I went to actually had a lot of steelbooks left on the shelf. I was standing in front of them and debating whether to get it, then two dudes walk past me, sent a derisive glance at the case, and one said, "I'm not buying an AC game again. It's just like Uncharted except with flashbacks." XD

You do realise that's not actually the back? It's a piece of paper.

You're not opening it?!

some people like to keep things in mint condition :)

I would rip it open and run about the house going 'woooooooo' if I had one..


Not that I do, or able to get one... grrr ;)

I would preorder AC3 right now but I don't have the money yet >.<

And I know I can just preorder with $5 but I don't like doing that, I like to pay in full all the time xD

I want to believe that the LE/CE I am waiting to pre-order will include this steel-book...
:confused:
I wont be too disappointed if it isn't though...
Still waiting for word on them also. :o

same here. i went Mental like a 6 year old when they delivered the animus edition at home.

ubishop is once stuck though for belgium users. i hope its fixed when they announce the special editions

I guess I will just live with the plastic case or hope to god for a steel-book in the special edition :)

I pre-ordered early so that I could get the steelbook case because that is probably all we'll get in North America as fas as special editions are concerned. I wish that Ubi would've done that with the ACR Signature Edition when you pre-ordered, at least it would've made that bitter pill that I had to swallow a little easier

When I pre-ordered mine, I put down $10 instead of $5, because when the CE's are announced (if NA gets one), all I have to do is call my local GameStop and they'll upgrade it over the phone effortlessly and painless.

i got 3 (4 actually, but i gave one to my nephew so he could have one when he gets it)... might sell a couple on ebay. need to cancel my other pre-orders though since i got two copies on pre-order in a different city. opted to pick them up at my local store instead.
