From Amazon US:

Here’s what customers who previously pre-ordered the SteelBook version of Assassin’s Creed III through Amazon.com need to know about the just-announced Limited Edition: The US version of the Assassin’s Creed III Limited Edition does not include the SteelBook featured in the Freedom Edition announced for other countries. If you decide to pre-order the Assassin’s Creed III Limited Edition and cancel an existing order for the SteelBook version of the game, you will not receive a SteelBook when the Limited Edition ships. When the Assassin’s Creed III SteelBook promotion launched, Ubisoft had not yet decided whether to produce a Limited Edition of the game in the US. Both the SteelBook and Limited Editions are highly limited in quantity, and while we understand that some customers may be disappointed to not receive a SteelBook in the Limited Edition, that decision was made by the publisher.

The limited edition is limited in quantity?
Atleast it is worth something on eBay.

People should of have pre-ordered AC III at Gamestop to get the SteelBook up front after you payed. Those ran out at Gamestop right, the SteelBook?

I do not live in the US, but I think by now they probably ran out.
But limited quantities mean those will be worth some cash online.

I probably won't use mine, but it is still nice to have. If it was the same size as a PS3 game box, I would use it.

Off topic: Do you only post links? I kinda noticed that :p

The Steelbox is the same size as a 360/DVD box.

Yeah, it is hard for me to just start righting something, so I find links instead.

I'll gladly take that title, I search AC on bing everyday if something is new, I if I think most people don't know about it, I share it.

Nononono, you put your game in the SteelBox (really a case).

Not sure about that, thinking about leaving the series on III.
Tho it is pretty stupid to assume everybody is buying it on a 360 -___-

This is what it says on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Creed-III-Xbox-360/dp/B0050SYLRK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1342233445&sr=8-1&keywords=assassin's+creed+3)

Due to high demand, we're currently sold out of the Assassin's Creed III SteelBook (all Steelbook pre-orders will receive the additional downloadable content). The standard edition is available. If you pre-ordered the Steelbook and cancel your order in the future, Amazon.com cannot guarantee the Steelbook offer for any future orders.

I don't see anywhere on GameStop, UbiWorkshop, Walmart or Target that a SteelBook was available as a bonus for pre-ordering.

Best Buy (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=-4316730139985821188&id=pcat17071&type=page&st=Assassins_Creed_3_60224&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960) says while supplies last for the SteelBook.

Hopefully that helps a little. ;)

it doesn't have a system banner on the top though, so it works for both systems. Just that if you put it with your PS3 games, it will be taller.

Blah, It should have fit both systems.

Black_Widow9, the SteelBook was offered really early as a pre-order bonus, I got this email in March, but I had already pre-ordered it before :)

*pick up at time of purchase. while supplies last - limited quantities*

So the only place (in the US) would be BestBuy if they haven't ran out yet.

I seriously doubt they still have some in stock.

Where at BestBuy? Pretty sure they're all gone at GameStop.
