You have misunderstood.

American pre-order. Pants = trousers in America.

ThatOneGuyThere2484d ago

not sure how he misunderstood

mikeslemonade2484d ago

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

CKPan2483d ago

@mike
which game you can't without pre-order??

geddesmond2483d ago

@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

sonarus2484d ago

yea but exclusive pants exclusive trousers still sounds dumb to me regardless what its called.

SilentNegotiator2484d ago (Edited 2484d ago )

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:

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

ThatOneGuyThere2483d ago

when you get married, you have exclusive trousers.

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.

err0neus002484d ago

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.

dredgewalker2483d ago

I actually think wearing no pants makes you a lot sneakier than faster.

Ddavis5132483d ago

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.

mrmack002483d ago

No pants definitely makes you more dangerous because, Hey, who wants to fight a guy without pants on?

Not me.

ThatOneGuyThere2483d ago

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.

ITPython2483d ago

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.

Gh05t2483d ago

Until they make the release the Pantaloons of Increased speed I don't want them... who wants plain old pants.

JeffGUNZ2483d ago

Does anyone know if they are Levi's?

ChronoJoe2483d ago

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.

Lubu2484d ago

Amazon's preorder bonus for Sonic: Lost World was worse of a bonus. 25 extra lives, smh

TheWackyMan2484d ago

Call of Duty day zero thing is just as bad as that in my opinion.

Brix902483d ago

Getting a day before release date and Double Xp is bad for a Pre-Order? Ok lol...

Yeah that's bad /s

SilentNegotiator2484d ago (Edited 2484d ago )

The lives system....what year was last year? Do Wii U's accept quarters?

ThatOneGuyThere2483d ago

i like the lives system. its way better than this pansy sh*t we've been subject to for the past 10+ years.

Jaqen_Hghar2483d ago

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

ArnoDorian2484d ago

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.

SkippyPaccino2484d ago

@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.

EdoubleD2484d ago

Boats don't belong in AC, but they were so good.
Hopefully Ubisoft can make a pirate IP.

HaveAsandwich2484d ago

that pre-order bonus is pants.

TheFutureIsBlue2484d ago

Lol first thing that came to mind when I realized what the pre-order was.
