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

Arne Meyer's Avatar Posted by Director of Communications, Naughty Dog


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.

Looks great, Sony should make a very premium quality version of that awesome traveling case. And add a super voucher of all the preorder DLC inside the case.

That was awesome!

Nolan North is undeservedly dogged by the gaming press and I want to remove some teeth every time I see it.

The man is genuine gold! Gold!

Can’t wait for the game. Great work ND! And same to the amazing cast.

I pictured Nathan Drake talk as Nolan North does in this video. Mind is blown.

CyleM said:

August 25th, 10:09 am

Wow he is hilarious!

SPOPS said:

August 25th, 10:11 am

I love Nolan North. He should really play Drake in the movie…

Question though, what is the box actually made out of? Is it wood, cardboard, plastic? Just curious if the box itself is something that I would want to display.

Thanks, and I can not wait for this game.

A second comment because I just have to say this video was superb. Love the Uncharted series so much! Sony knows how to tend to my tender spots :)

Nolan… It IS supposed to be worn as a “U”. The horseshoe as a symbol of good luck is upside down the other way. When it is placed as a “U” it holds all your luck in. If it tips the other way, all your luck spills out. I hope you didn’t just jinx sales! ;D

burningwind said:

August 25th, 10:40 am

Now if that acting doesn’t prove Nolan North should play Drake in the movie I don’t know what else possibly could.

Sean_Eng said:

August 25th, 10:42 am

At first, I was like “Whoa this guy sounds just like Drake from the game!”, until it dawned on me that he apparantly has had practice in doing his voice.
