Oh look…another Collectors Edition. It hasn't been officially revealed for North America yet, but we figure that announcement isn't far off.

Spotted over at European site 9Lives , it's the special edition for Assassin's Creed II , which is one of our most anticipated titles of 2009. This one is the "White Edition" – the "Black" edition is something else – and it features the Ezio figurine in his white assassin's costume, plus a bonus mission for the game. So this apparently means we'll have a choice between the Black and White Editions of the game, and there's some question as to the price-

"Moreover, you get the White Edition for the price of the ordinary game when you have your pre-orders."

It's a broken translation but we interpret this as meaning that if you pre-order the White Edition, it'll somehow cost the same amount as the standard game. We find this a little difficult to believe, but it's an excellent incentive to drive up pre-orders; if it doesn't cost anything more, then why pass on it? What are you going to use as an excuse? No storage room? We'll bring you more information on both these special editions, and the price details as well. We can't wait to step into the shoes of Ezio!

Seriously dude leave Europe alone, you'd feel the same way if it was you. Otherwise this edition sounds appealing, if the price incentive is true enough.

You brought Europe out of nowhere, oh wait cos it mentioned that it was spotted on a European website. It had nothing to do with a European release.

"Oh look…another Collectors Edition. It hasn't been officially revealed for North America yet, but we figure that announcement isn't far off." Thats why i brought up Europe, It says that a North American release hasnt been announced and then it goes on to mention it was spotted on a European website so that led me to believe it had already had a European release date.

No you assumed. "…but we figure that announcement isn't far off." It's not definitive.

I hope they announce this for North America. That figurine looks sweet, and if it's the same price, why not?

i was thinking today what would make assassins creed really cool, they wont do it because they want to make combat as slow and painfull as possiable.
but i wish you could hold down a button and string combos together.
like select one enemy hold down the string button than dodge his attack and counter than do the same for the others.
than let go of the string button and boom its done like a cinematic.

Australia gets both Black and White, and of course standard edition. The black is more I think, but the White retails at $120 if I remember correctly.

Why do people in europe complain at all about when they get a particular game at all?

Why not IMPORT it from the U.S. and play along with everyone else? You do know that we speak English also!!

Or does your PS3 not play any other Regions?

btw: I do know that all PS3's have all region playback.

My PS3 will not play american region games/DVDs. Also, if you look at the bottom of the product descriptions at sites like Play, you'll see a text that says "Will play on UK and European Playstation3 only".

Or is there a way to remove the region thing from the PS3?

Whoa, thought I stumbled into a Youtube comments page for a second there…

I wasn't planning on buying this game (definitely renting, though) but now I really want that Ezio figurine…

Not that weird actually, since I pre-ordered the Special Edition of inFamous for regular price, on Game.
