The lights are on
It's a good thing that the Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 bundle has pushed to 2012. I'm a sucker for collector's editions, and it would appear that every major release hitting store shelves this year has one. At the top of my list is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Batman: Arkham City is a close second. Now, thanks to a product listing appearing on GameStop, I have to add Assassin's Creed: Revelations' Ultimate Bundle to my list of excess.
Priced at $99.99 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and $89.99 for PC, this set comes with a replica of Leonardo da Vinci's flying machine, a highly articulated Ezio action figure, and an animated short film. In-game bonus content includes a new single player mission, three weapon capacity upgrades, and an exclusive multiplayer character. I don't know if this adds up to $99.99 in value, but I really want the flying machine. Yes, I am a sucker for collectibles that I'll likely box up a year after purchase. Don't judge me.
