Assassin’s Creed II Limited Edition PS3 Exclusive? (UPDATE)


GameStop will be having a Limited Edition version of Assassin’s Creed II for $70. The thing is, though, GameStop doesn’t mention anything about a 360 version, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did, indeed, head that was as well (turns out it will be available for the 360). For now, though, it’s only been announced for the PS3. Now, as far as the LE goes, here’s what is included in the packaging:

  • Premium Collectable Metal Case
  • 8.5 inch Collectable Ezio Statue
  • Two Exclusive, in-game maps:
    • Palazzo Medici
    • Santa Maria dei Frari
  • Additional content DVD:
    • Behind the scenes of Assassin’s Creed
    • Assassin’s Creed II Soundtrack

I’m not sure if the Altair is a misprint or not, because I’d expect the figure to actually be Ezio, so that may just be a misprint on GameStop’s end (afterall, they also said the figure was going to be 3 inches, but their Twitter said it was actually 8.5). As far as the price goes, $10 more isn’t too bad considering what’s included. You can check IGN’s posting on this story here. You can also pre-order online at GameStop.

UPDATE:
Thanks to Eric for pointing it out, but the link to GameStop was the incorrect one. Also, it is not a PS3-exclusive bundle and is actually called the Master Assassin’s edition and will be selling for $80, not $70. Sorry for the mix-up folks.

    It would be so darn sweet if it were PS3 exclusive. Tough it seems unlikely, since Ubisoft is active on all decent platforms with the AC2 ip

    I never got into the whole boxset thing with games, Who looks at the stuff after you had it for 6 months.
    But on the other hand, a few months ago I found a few GTA4 boxsets in the clearance bin at Target for $40 (the Standard game was still $60). Told a friend and he gave me the Soundtrack.

    This is limited edition Assassin’s Creed I, not Assassin’s Creed II. That is why it is a 3 inch Altair figure. The collectors edition Assassin’s Creed II is for Xbox 360 and PS3 for $80
