Ugh, this kind of DLC practice is irredeemable. It's like having six different versions of the director's cut of a movie, each version having one or two unique scenes that aren't in the other versions.
I read the title and thought the OP was joking... Then I saw the graphic.
Seriously? This is a tad rediculous. What happened to just releasing the game instead of potentially partitioning it off?
It is pretty sad really. I feel bad for those who are interested in the title. I wasn't planning on picking it up because ubisoft tends to do strange things
intrusive drm among others
with their games on PC (platform i'd purchase it for).
As someone who never had a horse in this race, I can't change how it will finish, but geez. I'd figure after 3-4 boxes being different there would have been some sanity check going on giving the people who were dreaming it up a moment to pause and wonder if it really needed to be this way.
This is very helpful OP. Thank you for posting this. It really clears up a lot of my confusion regarding the different versions.
I would like to get the PS4 version for the extra content but I hate the controller.
Unfortunately I'm taking a wait and see approach to this game. I'm wary of the delays, they're almost always a bad sign. I'm also deeply suspicious of Ubisoft giving away free tablets to journalists at a preview of this game.
If I miss out on any pre-order content, oh well. If I wind up dodging the bullet on another disappointing Ubisoft game, woo hoo!
It's like an abusive relationship. You're constantly getting fucked and forced to deal with bullshit all the time, but you get your way often enough to stick around and hope that things will get better.
