Can't believe that ULC went so quick! Was going to pre-order at Gamestop to get it opening night...

Hope they open it up again, might try after work to get it in real quick if one around here will let me.

I've been trying to find the super awesome Assassin's Creed 3 collector's edition, the one that came with the statue and stuff.

I've tried searching Amazon, Gamestop , and even the Ubi Shop but can't find it. Does anybody know what I'm talking about or where to pre-order it from?

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

That edition has only been announced for Europe. So far, no specific CE has been announced for North America. If you want that edition (which is the Freedom Edition, I think), you'll probably have to get it off eBay.

Welp, I guess my plan to wait until it hits clearance wasn't so smart haha. Hopefully BB or Amazon puts some more up or I'm going to be kicking myself for not ordering one when I had the chance.

It seems very strange that all three retailers would cut off pre-orders on the same day for all three systems unless 2K told them to do so for whatever reason. There's nothing like a quick sell out to drum up some immediate interest from people on the fence.

Wow. This news sucks balls hardcore. Why the hell would they do that? The Ubi Shop version for the US pales in comparison to both the Freedom and Join or Die editions.

Maybe they only do enough prints to fill demand. If so, it'll make these incredibly rare and valuable.

Its possible that they had a ceiling in regards to how many units they wanted to sell, given that they were touting how limited it was and how each one was numbered. When they reached that figure, they simply told the outlets to stop selling. Of course, whether or not that is actually the case is anyone's guess but I do find it suspicious that the retailers pulled it at the same time. That would lead one to think that it was an order directly from the developer and if that is the case then there is a good chance that its because they reached the number of units they wanted to sell. Given the reaction a lot of people had on misc gaming forums, I am betting it sold extremely well. I am just glad I got my order in when I did. I plan on making a metal version of that chest. Cant wait!!

I would like to thank GameStop for paying $75 for my Wii which was my down payment on the ULC Edition :)

Wish I had put down a payment for a Xbox 360 version too. The guy probably would have shit pants.

No idea, but they did the same thing with AC: Revelations. All NA got was Gamestop's Signature Edition (essentially a pre-order DLC bonus - I don't count the bundle with the 2 toys as a CE). A lot of people are hoping Ubi will announce a CE for NA at E3 or around July 4th.

zavvi.co.uk sold out of the freedom edition (statue) in one day, a couple months ago. they still have preorders up for the join or die version w/ george washingtons notebook and assassin's medallion and woodbox but only 360 format is left and pretty sure its pal . u snooze u lose i guess. eu always gets better assassins creed ce's due to ubi france hq and eu fanbase.

Same here, don't know why I waited when they opened pre-orders. Should've at least got one on Amazon since it's free.

Thanks, I already got mine from Amazon though...but why are they selling it cheaper than Amazon?

Edit: did a add to cart procedure, $156.94 with tax and shipping.

Edit 2: Hmm..If they do the 10X points promo again, and after a 10% cashback link, this is actually cheaper

The Last Story will get a exclusive box/44page artbook for early copies. The game was kind of a dud but for those looking forward to it, it's a nice bonus.

FYI, not sure if it was ever confirmed but Randy Pitchford said in an interview just a few minutes ago that the allocation for the UCE is sold out. So I guess this really is super rare.

Mediocre reviews.

It's good, but not great. I was glad it didn't last longer, but didn't think it stretched too long either.
