It seems like if you want to make a bigger splash, or perhaps snag a little bit of extra cash, with your high profile game these days, you have to release a limited or collector’s edition. While some games give you access to DLC, and others tempt gamers with the prospect of a limited edition game case, one hot title, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, is pulling out all the stops with its Collector’s Edition.

To demonstrate just how awesome the Collector’s Edition of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is, Sony and Naughty Dog have released a video that shows, up-close-and-personal, what is included in the edition, along with a special guest. This is an unboxing quite like any unboxing we have seen before.

Unboxed by Nathan Drake himself (well his voice anyway), Nolan North, the Uncharted 3 Collector’s Edition is worth the $100 price tag. Featuring the first ever steel book edition of the game, a replica belt buckle, a replica of the ring that Drake carries around, and an 8-inch tall Sideshow Collectibles model of Drake it’s hard to argue that this isn’t a fully stocked Collector’s Edition.

To see what each piece of the Collector’s Edition, except for the game disc, look like, or if you just enjoy seeing Nolan North but hearing Nathan Drake, check out the unboxing video below:


While purchasers of the standard edition of Drake’s Deception won’t be missing out on all of the fantastic game content Naughty Dog has placed in the game — from the multiplayer to the revamped co-op — these Collector’s Edition pieces are one-of-a-kind and sure to go fast.

Pre-orders are currently being accepted at all major game retailers including GameStop, but I would be wary of them in light of recent events. The game doesn’t launch until the first of November though, so there’s still plenty of time to decide, but make your decision wisely, you might not want to pass up a chance at your own mini-Drake.

Will you be pre-ordering the Uncharted 3 Collector’s Edition? How does this particular edition rank as compared to the Arkham City or Skyrim Collector’s Editions?
