Recently announced or perhaps leaked to the internet that this edition comes with 3 bonus missions, a ezio firgurine and some crap: music etc. It will sell for approximatley 80-90 USD.

Honestly, what kind of dumbfuck do they think I am? Not to mention you get exclusive weapons when completing AC on PSP and plugging it to the PS3.

Bottomline, Ubisoft sure knows how to rip people off.

I don't have a problem at all with collector's editions with bonus tangible junk, but I think extra maps or missions are pointless. The missions aren't going to be too relevant to the plot if they're not in the main version of the game that everyone will be playing, so I don't see the need to spend more money to avail of them.

I bet those " Extra Missions" will find their way to PSN and Live a couple of months after launch date. I bought the first CE of AC and I was severely disappointed. The figurine is super small and the extra dvd is very shallow. lacking in any interesting content and very short. The only thing I liked about it was the casing which I use for my negatives.

I deeply regret not buying the collector's edition for the original Assassin's Creed.


Special packaging, a great-looking Ezio figurine, the entire game's soundtrack (hopefully good), a leather-bound parchment-paper art book and 3 extra missions all sound pretty great to me.

If you could play as Black Ezio, I'd totally get it...

Wow, I want that special edition. Black Ezio looks so badass.

Although saying Black Ezio just makes me think of Eazy-E.

I prefer regular Ezio tbh. But how large is the figure? The one I got with first game was tiny.

I can still walk into any Best Buy and still find a limited edition copy of the first Assassin's Creed, so I'm in no rush to get this. The Black Edition is cool nonetheless.

Those extra missions won't be exclusive, I bet they will sell them on PSN or XBLM...

From looking at that picture up there, it looks about as big as the box...which makes it 8 billion times bigger than the first figurine. This looks pretty sweet. Think I'll pick this up.

Edit: OK, maybe I won't. Looks to be UK and Europe only. Bastards.

Does anyone know if there's any difference between the Black Edition and the Collector's Edition? I thought they were the same, but when I was gonna pre-order the Black Edition I noticed that the site had the Collector's Edition as well. I'm confused.

The figure looks pretty sweet, and if it comes with the game's soundtrack, then I'll definitely pre-order the Collector's Edition.

What are you talking about? They're giving a crap load of stuff. Hopefully the Ezio figure isn't tiny like the Altair one from the first game.

Well I guess this is my reward for not having any money and being able to buy it when it came out... providing I can finally get some spending money... and this comes out in the states I'll probably just get this version.

Or you could get a Taco: Black Edition:

I, however, am not being duped into buying either. Special editions are rarely worth it unless your fanatical about any given game. 
Art books, DVDs, figurines, sometimes shirts... no thank you. 
AC2 regular (white?) edition looks fun though.

If the price on eBay drops (the collector's edition for the original game is as low as $30 sometimes), I may eventually pick this up. I love the game, what can I say...

I wonder if the bonus disc is different, the North American one is terrible. It doesn't even include all of the content that's available for free online, there's less than 30 minutes of content if you don't include the soundtrack.
