I just... I can't even explain... my god... why?!

Also to give more relevence to this thread, the flags that special people got like websites, devs etc are this version, heavy cotton and just expensive. It is CONFIRMED by Ubisoft that this flag in the listing and the one given to special people is NOT the one that is in the Limited Edition, you will be getting a cheaper version. It says so in the source.

It'd take a rather avid fan with a bunch of disposable income to purchase that.

The limited edition flag looks super cheap and modern:

I don't think that's the Seller's price, that's the price someone has BID, that means someone is willing to pay that much.

Sad thing is there are some dum people out there with way too much money.

If you pay 4000 for a video game flag then you deserve to be insulted.

$4000 is the seller's buy it now price. In other words that's what they're asking for, but nobody has purchased it yet. I'd be seriously surprised if it ends up going for that much. Still kind of sad that they're even trying to sell it in the first place though.

I do want one and have plenty of money, BUT IT'S THE PRINCIPLE OF THE MATTER! (see what I did there?)

The problem with this is that the NA LE is getting a flag about half that size, and about half that quality.

Do you guys even know how to use eBay LOLZ. That is not bidding, that is the SELLERS price who is also taking in to account any offers he gets for the product.... Anyway, it is ridiculous either way, I would pay $200 MAX... if I had $200.

I'm surprised Ubisoft aren't stopping this guy from doing it. I don't see how he justifies that amount, and why he deserves to make that money.

Why should someone who simply works in the game's reviewing industry have the right to sell something like that for so much?

Whatever the case, it's not worth it. Hell, it's an amazing thing, and it was really cool of Ubisoft to do it (even if it's pointless for members of the press to get that kind of stuff)

I know there's more than 14 out there, he won't be counting the likes of EscoBlades, Hayley Bright and many others who I've seen post photos.

I bet we could all buy it if we put money towards it. We could then cut it up into pieces so each of us has some.

I'm not surprised at all. Press Kits go for this amount and more all the time.

Being a collector is in no way easy, nor cheap, but if somebody has that kind of money and is happy to spend it on an item they want, then props for them. It is a gorgeous and rare piece of merchandise.

You should do one of those Kick Starter things. And everyone who helps purchase it will get it for a month. It would be like a time share with the flag. Each share would cost $337.50 American. Try it. I bet people will sign up for it.

I actually kind of like this idea. I'd hate to actually pay this guy 4 grand, but it'd be a cool community unification project. Maybe we could get Ubisoft to sell us a flag like that instead and the money would go to a charity or something.

Then again, there's the whole issue about cutting up an American flag...so maybe they could make a Masyaf Assassin's flag or something?

Haha, a kickstarter to buy the flag :P I like it. But if anyones cutting it up, it is you Batistabus! Mainly because you are from New England and the USA ;)

Haha well we do cut up flags here for flag burning (retiring) ceremonies. I promise you, it's not as cultist as it sounds. Still, I'm not sure that this would qualify. Then again, I'm not even sure this counts as a US flag. xD
