As if we weren’t already excited enough about Uncharted 3, the folks at Naughty Dog continue to tease us. They just released an unboxing video of the Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition performed and narrated by none other than Drake himself Nolan North. This is actually a special occasion since it will be the FIRST ever CE for a Naughty Dog game.
The Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition will be released in North America on November 1 for $99.99. The entire Collector’s Edition will come housed in a very cool looking reproduction of a traveling chest – it’s got exclusive exterior artwork, comes with a lid that is held shut by a magnet and contains storage areas for all of the goodies that come with the Collector’s Edition.
As you will see in the video, inside the traveling chest are full size, wearable replicas of Nathan Drake’s belt buckle and his necklace with Sir Francis Drake’s ring. The Uncharted 3 Blu-ray disk will come in a collectible Steelbook with exclusive artwork for the Collector’s Edition – the outside has a great render of Sir Francis Drake’s ring, with the inscription debossed into the case. The interior of the Steelbook has been printed with the artwork of Drake under fire in the desert as a panoramic view across both covers. This is also Sony Computer Entertainment America’s first ever Steelbook edition. The piece de resistance is a high-quality statue of Nathan Drake from the folks at Sideshow Collectibles. Most of this stuff will NOT be available for purchase at retail so the only way to make sure you get it, is to reserve the CE edition now.
Now check it out and decide if you must have it, I’m thinking about it.
