UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition Unboxed

Like UNCHARTED

Well, we’ve managed to steal, er, borrow, a production sample of the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition. We had a little help from our friend Nolan North, otherwise known as Nathan Drake in the UNCHARTED games. Nolan stopped by the Naughty Dog studio with our ill-gotten sample of the Collector’s Edition and we couldn’t resist to shoot an unboxing video to give our fans a good look at what actually comes inside the awesome looking traveling case.

We’re really excited to be able to check out, in person, our first ever Collector’s Edition version of a Naughty Dog developed game. Watch the video below to see Nolan give you a firsthand account.

This 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.

Steel-SIdeshow U3: Collector's Edition Logos

As you can 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 Sony Computer Entertainment America’s first ever Steelbook edition, and we couldn’t be more excited that it’s being debuted with UNCHARTED 3. The piece de resistance is a high-quality statue of Nathan Drake that we worked on with our friends at Sideshow Collectibles. And just like the exclusive wearable replicas, and the Steelbook, you won’t be able to get this Sideshow Collectibles statue at retail, it’s only available with the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition! Like Nolan mentioned, this edition is being made in a very limited quantity, so make sure to save yours by pre-ordering now.

It was awesome to see this in person this week – and if you want to check it out for yourself, the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition will be on display at the PlayStation booth at PAX Prime 2011 THIS WEEKEND! Be sure to drop by.

DAYM $99.99. So much money and yet, I must have it. Darn you naughty dog for making such an awesome collectors edition. All retailers will carry this right? I plan on taking my business to Best buy (not really feeling gamestop at the moment) so hope they have it there. Great job Naughty Dog, you guys rock.

Loool narnia. It just kinda sucks this comes a day AFTER Halloween. That necklace nad buckle can reallly come handy for the costume I’m making myself (needless to say who I’m gonna be)


165

+ ShaoranLi on August 26th, 2011 at 8:07 am said:

o and hate to sound nitpicky but I wish they packed a CD soundtrack with this one. Guess it would’ve made the price more than it already is expensive otherwise … but -QUESTION- will there be one like Uncharted 2 had one? And will Uncharted 1 ever get its soundtrack?

Nolan North is awesome. He’s an insanely talented voice actor, and apparently a decent comedian as well. If we could get more unboxing videos like this, t’would be a good thing.

Oh yeah, Uncharted 3 will be great, as well. Only need to put $8 more on the CE to finish paying it off. I think I can come up with that in the next two months.

Hi can someone tell me when is the Uncharted dual pack coming out ???


193

+ MachoSuave1 on August 29th, 2011 at 8:06 am said:

No magnets in the 16th century you say? You’d be surprised Mr. North, the magnetic properties of lodestone have found to have been known and documented from as early 200BC and earlier.

Otherwise, nice video.

@Tru-4ever Yeah, I really wanted that art book, would’ve paid $150 to have that. But since they threw in the Free poster (kinda ugly, but whatever haha) I decided it was well worth it. :) Paid it off at gamestop. Got my battlefield 3 pre order in too. Now i need to pre order the shadow of the colossus collection, rage, and ac revelations :D. Oh and buy the rez map pack for bops. o_o so much money. Might even get dead island as well. We’ll see.
