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.

I concur w/ everyone else, hire this guy as an official unboxer. Others are crap compared to this

Wait, what am I missing? There’s a Special Edition, and an Explorer Edition. This is evidently Explorer Edition and the price tag is set at $99.99.

When I look at the retailers here in Sweden, the Special Edition, which includes some unlockable content and comes in a steel case is $99.99 and Explorer Edition which is what it is in this video, I see the price of $179.99..

What am I missing here?

@nikoo_89 This is the American “Collector’s edition” Not theExplorer’s Edition. The Explorer’s Edition has some DLC, a slightly different case, but it costs more. I think the Special Edition has extra DLC and a different case than the Standard Edition. The Explorer’s and Special Edition are Europe only I think. So, this is of the US Exclusive one. Just trying to clear that up.

@Capshot18, Ah, I see. I was thinking that it must be something like that. Thanks for the clarification, though!

I would rather get this edition at $99.99 than having to spend $179.99 on the Explorer Edition or getting our $99.99 Special Edition. The US one seems to have more value over the EU $99.99 one, in my opinion.

Silly Nolan. You’re not supposed to record yourself while stealing something. Hasn’t all that sand in your teeth taught you anything?

NeoMahi said:

August 25th, 4:11 pm

Nice one North. I thought the travel box was going to be made of some solid plastic instead of cardboard dangit…. and uh…. The disc actually wasn’t in the metal case though way to play it off. Frick. How much longer do I have to wait to play this game? Still two months out. Good deal! Eh, I still want the original box art though…. And a signed copy by voice actors, Hennig, Lamarchand, Wells, Balestra and Jack T. Any chance of that happening Sony?

August 25th, 8:49 pm

I’ve been thinking about upgrading my preorder from standard to collector’s…. but I’m still not sure. Why no super voucher? Soundtrack? Yes, this physical stuff is nice, but I really have no space to display any of it.

August 25th, 8:54 pm

very funny at the end, just make sure no one see’s you take it out the front door. And if their stop u and ask questions on what you have; A: say someone given it to u or B: run quickly out of their.

D-yer_Mak-erZoSo said:

August 25th, 9:07 pm

PLastic or Cardboard? because if it’s cardboard I won’t open it much because opening and closing the door will eventually tear it off.

No raffle to get it at pax? 09 pax they did a raffle for uncharted 2 at pax.

Arne, just curious, will Naughty Dog stick to it’s previous development cycle and go Crash, Crash, Crash, Crash Cart Racer, Jak, Jak, Jak, Jak Cart Racer, Uncharted, Uncharted, Uncharted, Uncharted Cart Racer?

Must admit, as a cart racing fan, it would be fun. Even if it were a PSN title.
