(First off; Hi. Long time lurker first time poster so excuse any posting stupidity lol)
(I also can't figure out how to edit my sig and avatar as I'm not used to this type of forum)

I'm in Australia and have preordered both the Black and White Editions of Assassin's Creed II (Black from EB, White from JB Hi-Fi for the hoodie). I'm curious, has anyone seen a photo at all of the hoodie yet? Is there even a photo of one in existance? I'm quite concerned about this because the hoodie is the only reason I'm buying White Edition and I'd like to know what I'm getting.

Even though it's great not seeing what one gets until it arrives in the mail. xD

Hmm, I don't know... It looks like it's fanmade TBH, plus the description on the preorder page says something along the lines of 'long-sleeve hooded shirt'.

I'm actually guessing it's something similar to the Assassin's Creed hoodie that came with preorders of the first game in the U.S (?)(Photos below). If it's anything like that I'm going to be quite happy and I assume anyone else who gets their hands on it will be too. xD

Do they ship the hoodie seperately? or do they somehow stuff that thing into the gamebox?

if it is part of the game package they will make a specail box for the game to acomodate it, generaly if it's a pre order reward they just ship them along side the game. or atleast thats how sevral games that have had pre order T-shirts and stuff in the UK has worked.

Thanks for the welcome ^_^
Not really, I have a fair bit spare (I do correspondence studying and save up what I don't spend) plus I can save up more than the AUS$110 for White edition (Black edition's a Christmas present I chose for myself xD) within the four months to release.

Linkage~ (http://www.jbhifionline.com.au/game/ps3/assassins-creed-2-white-collector-s-edition-bonus-hooded-shirt/436992)

JB Hi-Fi is the only store in the country that sells the hoodie, while EB Games and other stores just have the normal White edition pack.
If anyone else wants it, they do ship worldwide. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm not stupid enough to buy from EBay xD And yep, Halo Wars is over-rated.

I hope they don't just stuff it into the box with the rest of the pack, lol. That'd pretty much ruin it.
I'm guessing it's probably going to be included with the game in a plastic bag + cardboard insert to keep it from wrinkling and getting damaged.

Does JB Hi-Fi deliver? Just that there isn't a JB Hi-Fi where I live and I would really like the Hoddie.

There's no JB Hi-Fi anywhere near me either, lol.
Yeah, they ship orders out to customers. Also, one pays next to nothing until the item ships out, which is as soon as it's in stock -- Meaning there's potential to get it early http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The hoodie looks pretty cool, I'm not too thrilled about white, but I understand why it is white because of it being packaged with the White Edition.

I'm assuming there's various sizes, and it's likely a unisex jumper so I just gave my measurements/requested a S/M when I ordered.

I'm a bit curious about that as well. I'm assuming it's a random one out of the three extra quests that black gets though.
White also comes with an Ezio figure and white packaging, but the hoodie comes ONLY from JB Hi-Fi.

Since I'm getting both, if anyone's interested I'll post pics and compare the two editions when I get black edition in December, and post photos of the hoodie when it arrives. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Wow I completely planned on doing the same thing tomorrow (but I'm doing mine instore) And wanted to know the exact differences of the game contains when I found this thread. I really hope that i can still get the long-sleeve hooded shirt!

So let me just get it straight. All black and white editions are all the same around the world BUT JB Hi-Fi are just throwing in a shirt for the people who pre-order the white edition.

And can i ask you (L.Cie) when you pre-ordered, you did it online right? and you had to pay full price, but instore can you just put in a deposit (like EB Game)?

P.s Go Oz for the long-sleeve hooded shirt!

Where did you hear that both editions are the same? Everything I've heard so far on this forum implies that the White Edition is very inferior compared to the Black Edition.

Oh I'm sorry. What I meant was that the black edition would be the same around the world and the white edition would be different from the black but other white edition would be the same . Sorry again for not saying it proper &gt;.&lt;

(Sorry for the late reply I couldn't get online for a day lol)
I pre-ordered White edition online from JB Hi-Fi 'cause yeah, they're the only ones that stock it, and I preordered Black edition from my local EB Games just like any other game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Black and White both come with tonnes of treats in PAL regions, but in the U.S etc I think it's just the extra quest.
White Edition only comes with a hooded shirt if you get it from JB Hi-Fi, but otherwise it's just the figure, packaging, extra level and game.
Well, there's a lot in Black Edition. xD

When you pre-order from JB you pay nothing/a small fee (Can't remember lol) until the product ships, leaving plenty of time to save up for said game. xD
As usual, the EB pre-orders are 10% down first. o.o

Yeah lol go Australia for getting an exclusive hoodie xD

According to JB Hi Fi in NZ, we don't get the hoodie.

They also said that about the Red Faction Guerrilla Handbook before release though. And so did the official forums. Turned out they were wrong about that, so don't really trust them to know what they're selling any more.
