Assassins Creed Brotherhood CE Jack in the Box
With some notable exceptions, most collector’s editions cost $10 more than the standard version, sometimes even $20 on the high-end. So when a publisher tacks on an extra forty dollars to a price, they’re sending a clear message: "this is great stuff" -- and also, "we need money." Such is the case with the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Collector’s Edition, announced today by Ubisoft for a cool $99.99, and perfect for fans of the series and fans of creepy dolls alike.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 CE includes some of the usual features, like an exclusive art book, and a bonus disc with a making-of video, preview of the comic, trailers, and the game soundtrack. Other inclusions are more ambitious, like two exclusive single-player maps for use in-game, or an actual hard copy strategy map of Rome. But the coup de grace has to be the jack-in-the-box. GameStop customers can snag the Harlequin model (above), while orders from other retailers will have to be happy with the Doctor (below).
Eager customers can pre-order now, and just have to choose which figurine they want.
