In the grand tradition of fleecing the gullable and financially senseless, comes along this latest collectors edition for Ubisoft’s forthcoming Far Cry 3.

Just look at that bobble head for heaven’s sake.

The ‘Insane Edition’ for Far Cry 3 includes the following tat:

Exclusive Survival Kit Packaging: It’s supposed to look like a survival kit. It doesn’t.

An Insane Vaas Wahine: A 12cm Wahine with Vaas bobble head that looks totally fucking hideous. 

A survival guide: Discover unique artwork and inside information to help you survive the insanity of the island: Does anyone actually look at ‘unique artwork’ as a selling point these days for collectors editions? 

Monkey Business: Discover Hurk, a new memorable character and quest giver, and his 4 unique missions. An extra hour of gameplay exclusive to this collector’s edition! A WHOLE EXTRA HOUR! He’s memorable too!

The Lost Expeditions: 2 Suspenseful Action Missions and an exclusive World War II Flare Gun. An extra 40min of gameplay! FORTY MINUTES (Count em’) of extra gameplay!

  • The Hunter Pack: The M700 hunting rifle and its three collector’s skins.
  • The Warrior Pack: A handcrafted dagger and two exclusive tribal tattoos
  • The Predator Pack: 4 exclusive rare predators and a multiplayer bow.

Really, the allure of the multiplayer tidbits listed above will depend completely on the strength of the multiplayer – a bit of an unknown quantity at this point.  Still, you get all of that tat for £49.99, so it’s not like they’ve violated you for the usual £69.99 price point that so many collectors editions seem to be set at these days.

The Insane Edition of the game is available to pre-order at Zavvi.com.  Linkage here:  http://www.zavvi.com/elysium.search?search=Far+Cry+3%3A+The+Insane+Edition

There’s also a ‘reveal’ trailer for the Insane Edition that i’m sure you probably couldn’t care about.

Here it is anyway.  It looks awful.

Far Cry 3 is due to release on 360, PS3 and PC on 7th September 2012.
