The Collector’s Edition of the Uncharted 3 strategy guide has EXACTLY what I want to see in Collector’s Editions. I’m not a fan of a CE of a guide just being a hardcover edition and that’s it. Yes, the hardcover makes them ten times prettier, but give me something else. Give collectors something that’s worth the extra $15. In this case, Piggyback Interactive and Prima Games definitely have.
Yes, that is a copy of the Uncharted 3 soundtrack tucked loosely in the front cover. As a hardcore video game soundtrack nut, I nearly squealed out loud when I found it.
The last image is a photo of one of the examples in the character gallery in the back. Uncharted 3 is already so graphically beautiful, so why include extra concept art or anything similar? All the extra artwork we need are artwork samples directly from the game. If you think these photos of Elena are breathtaking, you need to see the rest.
Do those things appeal to you? Then go buy the Collector’s Edition, pronto. I am more than pleased with these extras, as they definitely fit what a collector of the Uncharted series would want to collect.
