NowGamer: "Ubisoft has coughed up what might be the worst pre-order bonus of all time. Check out this pre-order bonus for Assassin's Creed: Unity…"
You have misunderstood. American pre-order. Pants = trousers in America.
not sure how he misunderstood
It's called a bonus. They don't have to give you anything when you preorder other than ensuring a better chance that you get the game.0
@mike which game you can't without pre-order??
@Mike Only limited editions of games are pre ordered to ensure you get one. Pre ordering helps these companies out more than you think so people who pre order should be rewarded. Actually I think first month buyers of a game should be rewarded considering all bugs and network issues come with most games and that first month buyers pay full price.
You mean trousers equals pants in America? No one I know says trousers
yea but exclusive pants exclusive trousers still sounds dumb to me regardless what its called.
I'm guessing that kevco33 was assuming that the author was British and thought that the exclusive was underwear that made you faster. But I think it's pretty clear that the author thinks that pants/trousers are a stupid preorder bonus. For a real example of confusion over pants/trousers, a funny one, I once read a comment on Youtube (or a forum post or something, IDK, it was a long time ago) that a British kid was confused when he saw this back in the day: https://www.youtube.com/wat... lol, because if she meant pants the way the Brits say it...
Ha that would be funny if the preorder was for underpants. But cloth items are nothing new to preorders
when you get married, you have exclusive trousers.
I call pants briches.
I call pants "leg clothing"
I always thought not wearing pants made you faster. I'm positive that not wearing pants makes you more dangerous. That should be the promotion...the no pants Assassin.
No running with no pants definitely dies not make you faster. Your testicles best into your stomach and the pain slows you down. And it creates more drag.
I actually think wearing no pants makes you a lot sneakier than faster.
Yea no pants definitely makes you faster. Then you can also hit the NOS bottle aka Fart and you'll go faster. Without the pants the fart should propel you forward at warp speed.
No pants definitely makes you more dangerous because, Hey, who wants to fight a guy without pants on? Not me.
ball drag is no laughing matter.
@mrmack00 Actually, lost of people want to do just that... They even made a sport out of it, it's called UFC! LOL
I think if they were actually giving you a pair of trousers that be cool. But in game trousers for extra speed is dumb and not really worth the 30 minutes of development time IMO.
I am glad the pre-order bonuses are generally pretty weak, pre-orders are completely useless nowadays and last thing we need is to be locked into one supplier because the "bonus" being offering is absolutely game changing in a huge way.
Until they make the release the Pantaloons of Increased speed I don't want them... who wants plain old pants.
Does anyone know if they are Levi's?
Ooooh it's all okay then, because he means trousers, not pants! Seriously, what difference does it make? It's a superfluous addition. A crappy pre-order bonus. Not that pre-order bonuses should be substantial, though. Everyone should get the same content.
Amazon's preorder bonus for Sonic: Lost World was worse of a bonus. 25 extra lives, smh
Call of Duty day zero thing is just as bad as that in my opinion.
Getting a day before release date and Double Xp is bad for a Pre-Order? Ok lol... Yeah that's bad /s
The lives system....what year was last year? Do Wii U's accept quarters?
i like the lives system. its way better than this pansy sh*t we've been subject to for the past 10+ years.
A man agrees. Lives is an archaic method that doesn't make the game any harder (it's usually for 1 hit kill games anyway) and just artificially extends the life of the game. Rayman has it right with unlimited lives but just as much challenge so you're always progressing yet challenged
Just a reminder everything is changed in AC U, every clothing item, weapons, everything has Stats. So each clothing will depend on Arno's movement and speed and weapons will depend on Arno's attack strength with that weapon and other stuff.
but will it have boats?
@ArnoDorian Boourns! I'm not feeling this year's Assassin's Creed except for the fact that it's in France and city is looking beautiful. I'll eventually pick it up when it drops to 30$. That's my sweet spot for how I'm feeling about it.
Boats don't belong in AC, but they were so good. Hopefully Ubisoft can make a pirate IP.
that pre-order bonus is pants.
Lol first thing that came to mind when I realized what the pre-order was. http://upload.wikimedia.org...
OH GOD I'M IN TEARS!!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
what is THIS nonsense?
i guess the author hasnt seen the preorder bonus for 2k15
What is it?
http://www.gamestop.com/ps4... pretty crappy
It is... 5,000 Virtual Currency Kevin Durant Throwback MyTEAM Card Two MyTEAM Card Packs MyPLAYER leg sleeves, inspired by Kevin Durant
Lol... Should have just called it pants of unity or something lol. I'm sure someone had a good laugh thinking up that bonus.
meh, i need new pants anyway
I guessed a day before release but this ain't far off
"Exclusive pants to increase your speed" haha that's pretty bad
Wait until they release the exclusive thong that increases your jumping ability.
My friend says he heard there's an exclusive pair of socks that'll allow you to climb faster, but I think he's lying. Wouldn't it be awesome if it were true though? :,)
pre order bonuses never gave me anything special and in my opinion it is a totally pointless cash grab.
How is a pre order a cash grab. The 5 dollars you put down comes off the game when you pick it up
Can't be a cash grab if they are not making cash off of it. A pre-order goes to the purchase of the game.
Ubi is going to be the next to go down for being clueless lately...
I pre order for convenience. Anything extra is just a bonus.
I agree. I really don't understand the haters that get their panties in a bunch over people pre-ordering a game. If you think about it you're getting free things just for securing yourself a copy day one. Whats not to like, even if it is something as trivial as in game pants. :/
Can't remember getting anything for pre-ordering in the ps2 days. So it only got better right?
I'll wait till black friday it will be half off for 30 buck's, since this will end up gas micro transaction
Why not give me pajamas while you're at it Ubi!
Id rather have something like this than story content or missions. Ubisoft has been horrible in the past with preorder dlc being whole missions, this is a step in the right direction if you ask me
I completely agree with you. Its a huge bummer that so many games have exclusive maps or missions that you can only get by with a preorder. The worst is when they do it with multiplayer maps. It seems to me though that preoder bonuses are starting to go in the right direction with in game items being the incentive instead of parts of the game being locked to people who didnt buy early. That being said I've been preordering games for as long as I can remember and it is nice that I get something a little extra for putting faith in a game before reviews come out. I cannot wait for the nostromo edition of alien isolation.
Alien isolation is the worst pre order ever,an alien game where the cast of alien is held back for pre order bonus.just shows how anti consumer the industry has become....watch jimquisition on pre order bonuses he sums up pre orders very well,as long as u can put up with the guy being a little bit weird that is.
@dreamed It is not the best when it comes to dlc but it is an actual incentive to get the game early without being worried about it affecting multiplayer (which there seems to be none)
ubisoft does some pretty crappy pre-order deals like outfits and extra forgettable missions or some BS like that.
why are we debating this? this is a pre-order. either you are gonna buy the game or you arent. you act like the devs have to give you something.
Ohhh, IDK, you get a digital patch in the new COD
There is a bonus mission that's a pretty good preorder bonus. And since reordering games at Gamestop only requires 5$ which they take off the purchas price, I guess anything they are willing to go e you for free is cool. What worries me about this is that it might be hinting at micro transactions and a lot of them
if you preorder AC U at gamestop u get an extra mission.
chemical revolution? I believe you get that everywhere, as long as u preorder the game
Pathetic Ubisoft, all the crap they have done in the past and still do just makes me not want to give them my money. They don't seem to respect us, well f*ck them.
You act like theyre the only ones who do this. If you felt this strongly about every other publisher/developer then you wouldnt bother gaming in the first place.
