To day I went to my local EB games shop (Australia) and instead of a steel case they gave me a copy of the AC Revelations novel. Why is it that come people get the steel case while others have to get alternatives. I was under the impressions that due to the official video, everyone would get the same steel case.

Wow, I've never heard of that. I guess it is different for some different countries. I'd imagine that everyone would have the opportunity to get the steel case. Some people will sell theirs on the internet.

Or it's because they were out.

Pre order offers differ by country and region. I was under the impression people were aware of this. Also, the offers change when the retailer runs out of stock.

Either the way, i'm almost 100% ceertain the Steelbook offer was US only.

Well, I just did some checking... Australia GameStop/EB Games isn't offering the Steel Book. Neither is the UK's GameStop. It could be a NA only promotion seeing as NA doesn't really have any super collector's editions at all for AC.

On the Wednesday or Thursday after the trailer came out, the stores around me were almost out of the cases. You probably just got there after they were all sold out.

I pre-ordered and didn't get a steelbook because I'm in the UK. It differs everywhere.

To the OP, i can understand your situation. Being a gamer in the North America's market isn't sooo great either when it comes to Assassin's Creed franchise. From the very beginning with AC1 to AC Revelations. The US market had suffered "inferior collector's editions" it's only right Ubisoft have an understanding for us now.

If it makes you feel any better, i would gladly trade my AC III's steel-book case for one of Europe's better Collector's Edition. I'm serious as having a heart attack.

you know what i'm saying? well anyway hope it doesn't bump you out too much.
