Yea I ordered the pre order limited edition from Uplay, at the time they had it listed at a price point of 89.99. That s not what I got though. The day they processed my order they changed my order to gold edition. The difference is I agreed to pay for something with extra items that should have been mailed to me. I did not receive any of the pre order special edition items i thought i was ordering according to what I was reading. the price I payed was less than what I agreed to by about ten dollars, but I had wanted the additional items listed when I chose to make my purchase. Me with real bad add did not notice the change. I had realized I had got the confirmation Email, but when I did not receive my items I have been trying to get a response as to why my Items had not been mailed out. No response even though the tech I spoke to today insisted they sent me an email. So I payed for something that I did not order at a price I did not agree to. The very package they are now selling for $30 I might add. I did not receive any of the limited edition Items I had wanted.

As a Radeon fan, I can't say I'm "happy" about an nVidia partnership...but I'm glad you've got these versions.

And really, it'd be nice to have the game have come out two days ago! Or next Tuesday. I suppose it's all for the best.

I also find it interesting to note that the Aveline content, which some articles stated was only on the PS3&4, is available.

Well, I preordered the Black Chest Edition a long while ago and I'm glad it reached Gold-Status. I am really looking forward to this! :D
