Standard Edition for me "wootey woot"
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1039d ago
I WANT THAT FREEDOM EDITION!
LOGICWINS  +   1039d ago
I'd rather get the standard edition and buy a $20 PSN card to buy the extra 3 missions. I'd rather spend money on something that I can ACTUALLY play rather than a statue that I'll end up giving to my 10 year old nephew.

@ Logicwins

I like collecting video game stuff, its a personal hobby. I have an Altair and Ezio Statue from both of the games Ce's. Connor will be a nice addition to my collection.

But hey, you want to buy the standard edition and thats fine.

I just like cool stuff
Dmd  +   1038d ago
Me too, that statue looks nice!

THREE collector's edition??
overkill!
omi25p  +   1039d ago
Im not getting any edition because im completely uninterested by this game.
rataranian  +   1039d ago
Ah the "Lame-O Edition". niiiice.
Nitrowolf2  +   1039d ago
Then why the hell did you even click on the story
omi25p  +   1039d ago
Clicked on it to see the contents.

And yes the lameo-edition, I think the setting and story sound uninteresting

@omi

um...then why post anything here?
LOGICWINS  +   1039d ago
LOL, notice how you don't get all 3 extra single player missions no matter what edition you buy.

If you buy the Special Edition, you get "A Dangerous Secret"

If you buy the Join or Die Edition, you get "A Living War"...but not "A Dangerous Secret"

If you buy the Freedom Edition, you STILL don't get "A Dangerous Secret"...but you get "The Living War" and "Lost Mayan ruins".

Well played Ubi...well played indeed.

Wait for the complete edition in a few months after release.
SnotyTheRocket  +   1039d ago
@ironfist92 What im doing with Revelations
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1039d ago
Ubisoft region locks content in special editions, so different countries get different dlcs that will not be available for other countries until a later date, its been done for previous collectors edition dlc for Assassins Creed games, with europe usually getting more than in the NA.

Ex

brotherhood:

US: Jack in the box + Harlequinn+Single player mission
Eu: Animus Edition + Harlequinn+Crusader+ Single player missions

Revelations

US: singature edition with dlc
Eu: 3+ editions with various dlc

Most of the content is specialized for different parts of Europe. Which is why they have 3 editions

The Us one will most likely be the freedom edition

Which also equates to three separate pieces of substantial Day 1 DLC for.
N311V  +   1038d ago
In Australia we're getting Ghost of War and Lost Mayan Ruins. No mention of A Dangerous Secret.
SnotyTheRocket  +   1039d ago
Already got mah Steelbook, NORMAL EDITION FTW!
ThankYou_KindSir  +   1038d ago
Same here! I'm looking really forward to playing this game!

I find it a little odd that these have not [yet] been announced for, you know..... America.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1039d ago
Well Ubisoft is based in europe, so it makes a bit more sense.

But, yeah see what you did there
DarkBlood  +   1039d ago
i thought it was in quebec? or at least i thought it was based on one of the prince of persia games development anyways

oh well this i didnt know
Frenza  +   1039d ago
Not everything on the internet is about, you know... America.

Edit: A crap load of "Disagree" is incoming..

well figuring that mostly europe got the better special editions for previous games, cause they were set in europe. being that this game is based in america im pretty sure its all about, you know... America
Baka-akaB  +   1039d ago
the franchise sold petty much the same in europe , the publisher is mostly european , the game's heme is just a theme , and they probably gotta figure some annoying Gamestop or Best buy exclusive deal as usual , so no ... you can just wait a little , for a change

Got announced in Australia today.

Looks like this editions are exclusive to just about everywhere but America. Be strange if you guys didn't get the same editions or better considering the size of your market.
iamnsuperman  +   1039d ago
All I would like is the game and the "special extra missions" and that is it.
Neo Nugget  +   1039d ago
US had better get a good Collector's Edition like this for the last game in the trilogy :(
SandwichHammock  +   1039d ago
"...last game in the trilogy." LOL, that's a good one.

Assassin's Creed III:Bro Team!

followed by

Assassin's Creed III:Team Bro!

finally

Assassin's Creed III: ! ! !

AHAHAHAHAHA!
mook1022  +   1039d ago
Being that this is set in the U.S.A. we better get the collectors edition here...fingers crossed!!!
VanillaBear  +   1039d ago
Got to hand it to Ubisoft they know how to make Collectors Editions

Although I'm a bit annoyed that Medallion dosen't come with the Freedom Edition aswell as the statue. Not to sound greedy but I mean we are paying for a higher price CE least they could do is throw everything from the low two CE in there aswell.
Lucreto  +   1039d ago
I have the Freedom edition pre-ordered already.
VanillaBear  +   1039d ago
If your from Europe or the UK where did you pre order it from....I can't find it anywhere

EDIT:

Thank You :)

Wow that's expensive. Although if I remember correctly (at least in Ireland) the AC:R CE decreased in price around a week before release so maybe this might too. Thanks for the links by the way.
VanillaBear  +   1039d ago
I would watch it though don't want to wait then see it go out of stock. It dosen't happen to all games but expect the unexpected. I thought Resistance 3s survival edition was going to be around a while then when I went to pre order it I was too late.....luckly someone cancelled their pre order and I finally got it.

Since it's AC3 and how popular AC has become I would think theres more of a chance people will buy it.
Swiggins  +   1039d ago
Looks like I'll be getting the Join or Die Edition.

Freedom will probably cost $150

Join or Die will probably cost $100.
N311V  +   1038d ago
Are you in NZ?
TenkoTAiLS  +   1039d ago
Kinda reminds me of the Black Edition and the White Edition of Assassins Creed 2. One more expensive than the other, one had slightly more DLC than the other, but both had different collectable contents. Different figures etc.
banjadude  +   1039d ago
3 different editions (plus standard, I guess)? WTF...?
As if splitting content wasn't enough...

The Freedom Edition
Regent_of_the_Mask  +   1039d ago
I'll get the Gamefly Rental Edition.
dragon82  +   1038d ago
I already have the white steel book case for AC3. I got it from Gamefly for pre-ordering the standard edition of the game. :D
Ness-Psi  +   1038d ago
I wonder if the wii u will get any special editions?

or are ubi gonna use the old trick "the unique controller with its own map screen will be your special extra" ?
Elvis  +   1038d ago
The Free edition for me.
TBONEJF  +   1038d ago
I'll take the one with the COIN EDITION looks so awesome
