The Watch Dogs Limited Edition will be available at launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. No mention was made of a Wii U release.

Watch Dogs launches for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on November 19. The Xbox One and PS4 versions will release sometime this holiday.

Ubisoft expects the game to sell more than 6.2 million units.

I'm not sure why Ubisoft expectations for success with this game is so high, considering I have yet to be impressed by the videos.  Fall Out 3, Ninja Gaiden Black, Half-Life 2 only took one or two videos to convince me.  Oh well...

Hmmm....Let me guess.  Will have to climb to the top of cell towers (Farcry 3) or will we have to climb to the top of building towers (Assassin's Creed) to be able to gain access to the city's grid that allows us to see details on our map.

This game looks EXACTLY like FC3 mixed this AC.  Get some creativity Ubisoft.

I don't understand the hype for this game.  The videos of gameplay I have seen were not impressive at all.  The hacking mechanic looked 'blah'.  The storyline did not seem that interesting.  As an example compare that with the new Deus Ex Human Revolution game (not the one coming for IOS, but the pc version from a while ago)  That was an amazing title with interesting environments, good stealth or action gameplay, and a marvelous story.  Compared to that, this watch dogs game looks mediocre.

There are cheaper solutions, if you just want the mask there is a special edition with just the mask. Same goes for the statue.

Dedsec Edition (Which I got) = Statue, artbook, holocards, badges, map, steelbook. MP and SP packs

Vigilante Edition = Mask and baseball-cap. Steelbook. MP and SP packs (ingame stuff)

Both packs above have extra ingame missions, dedsec has them all.

Uplay exclusive edition = steelbook and the extra missions plus MP and SP packs

Limited Edition (picture above) = Mask, statue, artbook and steelbook. No idea about the packs or extra missions

Special Edition = Just the game with unknown bonus.

Normal Edition = The game (plus side, it's very cheap :P )

Oh damn.  I do not want this.  I do not want this.  I do not want this.

For the people saying these bundles cost too much well some do but not this one.  Art books alone cost $40 or more at stores plus you get the game with this and then there is all the other stuff. Ubisoft is offering good value here.

WTF.

Why do they keep including these god awful statues?

Does anyone want that crap? That's the thing that is driving this above 100$.

I want the mask, the soundtrack, steel book, and art case.

But not that STUPID F'n statue.

They must know it's going to be awesome if they're going to release this for 130 bucks.

I rather pay for a $80 Ocarina with a song book than this limited edition of watch dogs. The art book is the only thing that is interesting.

For that much, it better come with a hooker.

whta the hell Ubisoft ? why are all your limited edition price so high ? you have Splinter Cell Blacklist Paladin Aircraft Edition for $170, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Limited Edition for $130 and now Watch Dogs limited edition for $130. WTF Ubisoft ? you do know Ubisoft's limited editions are not going to sell well seeing how the PS4 & XBOX ONE are coming out this year. Ubisoft really needs to re-think the price for their limited editions if they want them to sell well.

Like I mentioned on AC IV article, if a game is on 5 different consoles on release its not a limited edition. There will probably be millions of these produced, but at least in the 100,000s of thousands. For comparsion the most common "rarest" game panzer dragoon saga has around 10,000 copies in existence. Dead Space Ultra edition had 1,000 copies in existence. And at the very far end of the spectrum you have a handful of games in the tens to single digits.

This game looks cool but there's something about it that just feels so Deja Vu and recycled...why did they to have the main character run around in a hood and a trench coat, makes the game feel like it's aimed for teenagers only.....waiting for the reviews on this one.

Not here to hate on anyone wanting to buy the collectors edition. But personally I'd be more inclined to pay $130 bucks for a game package if they offered a wealth of additional game content, instead of an 8 inch action figure and mask.

I want that statue!

I wanna play with this statue, and mine Samus from Figma and Solid Snake from Play-Arts Kai.

I will wear the same vigilante mask and commit robbery in ubisoft HQ and collect enough money so i can spend on the future ubisoft releases on next gen. :)

Who buys these special editions? And for how long is this extra junk relevant? Why would somebody pay an extra 70 bucks for dumpster filler?

@predatorGS Hold up hold up. So there are 6 DIFFERENT EDITIONS OF THIS GAME? Would you happen to know if they'll ever release one edition wherein ALL of those stuff are included? Like the Dedsec Edition, but WITH the mask and the cap?

Also, ARE the Dedsec and Vigilante editions ONLY for Europe? Will it be available internationally?

@grin89 dude ebay gonna have it for 10-15 bucks when it comes out..

@VenkmanPHD why would you want the soundtrack? no one listens to tapes or CD in 2013. That's for people in 1980s.

@VenkmanPHD actually alot of videogame collectors do it's starting to become more popular as of late especially with retro games.

@VenkmanPHD Some people like statues to go on their shelves. Just because you don't doesn't mean they shouldn't include it.

VenkmanPHD

@Velphian-Freddy No, the statue is what's not worth it.

DLC is a stupid pre-order bonus.

Things like the mask, and the art book though are why people buy collector's editions.

@Psi-Agent They always have sold, and they will continue to sell.  They are so pricey because they always some with some kind of statue.  As for the Splinter Cell, it comes with an RC plane, those don't come cheap.

@galactic88 Yeah, I'm honestly shocked by this.  $130 is more than double the price for the game!! I'm not saying it's not worth it, but CE like this for new IPs are just poor buisness decsions.  A lot of people myself included are going to wait for reviews to come out before buying it.  Much less spending $130.   

CE's that expensive should be saved for franchises were people know what there getting and have no problem committing.

@galactic88 They can't do that because then everyone will scream about how that is basically the same as Day one DLC. People will feel cheated that they can't get the "full" version unless they pay extra.

@Katz 

I like buying collector's editions off eBay once they get a lot cheaper, because all that extra crap isn't worth $70 extra. 

Slade968

@Katz There are tons of collectors out there. I've bought a few and broke it down and sold the different parts on ebay while keeping the actual game. You'd be surprised how well this kind of stuff sells.

@Zeemc @predatorGS It looks like the only editions available in North America are the standard edition and the above Limited Edition. The other editions mentioned are located elsewhere. Usually there are several special editions, but most are region-specific.

There's still a chance Ubisoft could open up different editions internationally before launch. I'd keep an eye out on the official Watch Dogs site in case anything comes up. Hope this helps! :-)

@burrito_tester @Psi-Agent Because they include RETARDED bonuses like RC planes and Statues.

No one wants this shit.

I do want the art book and the mask, but not willing to shell out for the POS statue.

Problem is people keep buying this senseless crap, so they continue to keep making it, just stop people please....for the love of god.

@galactic88 Why? It doesn't hurt you in any way, on the contrary, it gives developers more money so they may be less inclined to milk you with endless DLC (unlikely though).
