Firstly, kinda odd, anyway here is list of differences.

1. Sky is bluer in the NA box art
2. You can see a second sail in the European edition and (hardly) not in the NA version
3. There is a clearer texture on the mast pole thing in the NA version
4. The Black Flag is blacker in the NA Version
5. "Assassin's Creed 4" text larger in the European version
6. Whole image of the NA Version is larger
7. Colour of clothing on Edward is more vibrant on the NA Edition
8. The thing bottom right with two knobs and rope on it is moved more to the left and is also larger in the NA version
9. On Edwards right leg in the European version there is no smoke effect.
10. Dead Person in NA version is closer to "us", he blocks more of the stairs behind him

Thats all I spotted, can you find any more?!

Is this meant to be a big deal? This thread is honestly irrelevant.

Does it have to be? He found something that he thought was interesting, (and unable to be put in the off topic thread) and he wanted to share it with us. Don't be such a little ***** about it.

Yeah it's so interesting...it's gonna keep me up all night contemplating why this colour is more blue than the other one. You two have fun discussing this!

I don't know why the versions have differences beyond the rating system. Like, did somebody really say, "No, this has to be bigger and closer to the character in the NA version, otherwise it won't cut it"? What could possibly be the reason? O_o

Well, it could be worse. NA could hire the person who did this:

Why? I spotted 9 differences and have started a spot the difference game, you don't have to click on threads you dont want to be a part of.

So interesting you had to come one here and state it's not so interesting, interest me. But I think when something gets made for America they have to let the picture roll off its boarders so their printers pro te over the boarder space, so things like gaps don't appear because they are sloppy at their jobs. It's really a cleaver deception.

It interests me that some one would create a thread which has no purpose. I wish i could share the same enthusiasm for the discussion of font size and textures, you must all lead thrilling lives if this interests you...

i don't understand why people have to comment on every little thing, if you don't like something you don't have to disrespect someone who is providing some info about something he found different.

Umm... well it looks like to me is that for the only differences are a blur, bigger text a zoom out and some desaturation to the blues.

I wonder why? Umm... no big though as long as well all get the same game right?

This!

To me it is more like a "quality of the picture" issue than a creative/promotional decision. Pretty neat cover anyway, better that the former version.

So is there an answer to as why there is a difference and which one looks better? I like Ed's clothing, they look faded from the sun but I think they should be more tattered from rain, the sun drying them and from being caught on loose nail and boards

they should use Edward's updated model, as the blue on the bottom of his robes is now black with a white outline in the game.
