Uncharted 3's Collector's Edition Is Pretty Weak, Will Save You Money

Posted by Sammy Barker

You'd think that a release as big as Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception would command the very best collector's edition Sony could muster

After all, there's money to be made.

Sony's been pretty good with collector's editions lately: both the inFamous 2 Hero Edition and Resistance 3 Survival Pack offer tempting extras on top of the game itself. But Uncharted 3's collector's edition is pretty weak in comparison.

The set — priced at $99.99 — includes the game, a Sideshow Collectibles Nathan Drake Statue, a replica of Nathan Drake's belt buckle, a replica of Drake's ring/necklace, and a steelbook game case. The steelbook case is actually surprisingly terrible, showing nothing but a huge render of Drake's ring. It all comes packaged in a "Travelling Chest" which we suppose looks neat. Grudgingly.

Perhaps our anticipation for the game is causing us to adjust our expectations for the collector's edition, but for a franchise as big as Uncharted this entire set looks a little bit cheap to us. Thoughts?

In addition to the collector's edition, Sony's also revealed details of Uncharted 3's pre-order bonuses in the US. We've included all the details after the jump.

Update @ 16:44BST: SCEE's just revealed the European steelbook which looks a lot better. Pre-order bonus details are through the link too.
