Not interested in all of the extras just the DLC so Uplay would be best for me.

Anyone know how long it would take to receive the game from them?
So the 60 minutes is exclusive to PS3?
Oh damn, $149.95 for the Deadsec edition... Might have to just go all out this once and get it..

Thanks for the info, MrMoo.

So the PS4 will be out by 21 Nov? Who will get that version, and would it be worth it? Wonder if the graphics are similar to the PS3, or would it have a higher resolution?

Not necessarily. The game will be out on November 21 for the platforms available at the time. Ubisoft would have an idea of when it'll be out in the US, but they'd be guessing as to the Australian release date.
game looks good (another GTA/Sleeping Dogs) type.
But looks interesting. Might wait till the price goes down and get them later (like I did for sleeping dogs/GOW/DMC) *_*

I'll only get the game tough. Don't really need the rest of the stuff.
If you're going to do special editions, etc. they should really only just do one.

I'm grab vigilante. Dat cap and mask.
