Alright Ubisoft, or Best Buy, what the hell is this.

Always wanted a free football to throw at my friends while playing a game about pirate assassins! Maybe this is how you turn on your TV.

Probably only included with the xbone version. You know, to toss around in your massive living room.

it makes sens. Jade said during the first gameplay demo at E3 200X that the chase gameplay must feel like US football

At least put the Bucs logo on it, or something. And a Taco Bell coupon.

I wish more preorder things were like that, really. Exclusive DLC is worthless once you're done with the game. A pigskin to toss around is good forever.

Look at it this way

You buy a limited edition football from Best Buy (who usually doesn't sell them) and get AC IV for free.

Assassins and football, think this confirms AC5 will have Aaron Hernandez as the protagonist.

I saw these in a Best Buy on Labor Day, I just assumed AC4 had some kind of football minigame or reference, didn't really consider the specifics of it.

I saw this the other day in-store - it's a mini football to boot...and foam. So it really is useless. I couldn't even see myself wanting to play catch with it. So then you go to: is it a display item? Like, it looks good on a shelf? Nope. Just black with a logo on it. It's cheap.

Completely boggles the mind. It makes zero sense. They should have given out an Ezio Hot Wheels car or something, instead. At least it has desk potential.

You have to use that term on forums where people in other countries visit to avoid confusion and arguments.

It's mini and made of squishy foam. They're also giving out a retailer-exclusive DLC pack.

What retailer is giving out a blimp! I want it! I'll seriously go cancel my Gamestop Pre-Order and Pre-Order wherever they're giving out a mini blimp!

I don't see why people have a problem with FREE merchandise.

It's a football. You pre order a video game about pirates and get a football.

It's like those weird convenience store bundles where you buy some cookies and get a shaving cream free with it.

Its not an actual physical representation of an ACTUAL blimp you get... you get an IN-GAME Blimp in GTA :P
