Sony Digs Up Uncharted 3 Collector's Edition and Pre-Order Bonuses

Naughty Dog has put together a bunch of goodies to reward hardcore Uncharted 3 fans.

In 2009, Naughty Dog released a collector's edition for Uncharted 2 that featured a pretty dagger, but it wasn't available in stores. For Uncharted 3, the company has assembled a collector's edition that anyone can just go out and buy this time.

It might not have a dagger with which to sacrifice your neighbor's goats, but it does have some pretty neat stuff instead. The Uncharted 3 collector's edition comes with a wearable version of Nathan Drake's necklace featuring a replica of Sir Francis Drake's ring, a wearable full size replica of Nathan Drake's belt buckle, a statue of Nathan Drake (desert version), a steelbook case for the game, and it shoves all these goodies inside of a package that looks like a traveling chest. Bury it in your yard and dig it up for the true Uncharted experience.

Sony and Naughty Dog haven't put a price on the collector's edition yet, but they say it'll be available for pre-order soon. Speaking of pre-orders, Naughty Dog has revealed what customers will get for putting down a deposit on Uncharted 3 at various retailers.

Pre-ordering at GameStop gets you the Creepy Crawler multiplayer Medal Kickback (for information on how Medal Kickbacks work, go here), which will allow you to turn into a swarm of bugs.

Best Buy's pre-order bonus awards you with the Regeneration Booster, which increases healing rate in multiplayer. Amazon gets three pre-order bonuses: the Carpet Bomb Medal Kickback that sends out three grenades with one throw, and increased clip size gun mods for the Para-9 and the G-MAL weapons. Finally, putting down a deposit at Wal-Mart will net you the Callout Weapon Mod, a laser sight for the AK-47 that allows everyone on your team to see what you're targeting.

These bonuses are early unlocks and not exclusive to each retailer. You'll be able to find them in-game eventually no matter where you buy Uncharted 3. It's really how all pre-order content should be handled.

Uncharted 3 will be available in November 2011.

That IS a good way to handle preorders. Freaking NV making me want all the different loot, but knowing it will be obsolete 2 hours into the game hald me back.

Yay it has a statue! That means it's an instant-purchase for me. What can I say, I'm a sucker for decorative game items. At least ones that aren't too tacky. No Duke Nukem buste for me, for example.

I just hope I can fork over the money for it. My income will go down drastically when I go back to school.

They're really Jonesing for the Indy crowd aren't they?

Okay. Yeah. I'm buying this shit.

Even if I have to sell a kidney.

I played Uncharted 1. Thought it was okay, but not really franchise worthy.

Then I played Uncharted 2...and ate one of my boots.

Uncharted 3...will be the first collector's edition that I've ever bought...and it will be worth it.

I will never take that replica ring off.

Onyx Oblivion:
Okay. Yeah. I'm buying this shit.

Even if I have to sell a kidney.

I see what you did there. -_-

Lol and I may pick it up but I don't know how I feel about these preorder bonuses.

I. Want. The belt buckle.

Maybe a shirt that stays half-tucked in? It's the latest fashion!

According to the European PS Blog, the European CE will feature everything that the US version will except for the chest. There will be some kind of a box though and the game box will look like Drake's book. Do want.

Onyx Oblivion:
Okay. Yeah. I'm buying this shit.

Even if I have to sell a kidney.

What you did there, I see it.

That "creepy crawlies" kickback looks positively awesome and horrifying at the same time.

I've never bought collectors editions and all those other fancy editions.
But dammit, i do want to. Looks quite cool.
