Dragon Age: Inquisition Uber Edition is a guide

DAI uber edition

Considering the vast range of Collector’s Editions, I think we’ve gotten used to the idea that it will be difficult to decide what version to get when a game is released. I got all excited to hear about an Uber Edition for Dragon Age Inquisition, but it’s not as uber-ly cool as I thought.

Prima Games make a variety of guides, but this one looks particularly pretty. So what do you get with the Uber Edition?

  • 368-page Collector’s Edition hardcover guide with unique cover treatments matching the container
  • Stylized pen with Inquisition logo presented in a themed box
  • Four faux leather bookmarks topped with metal headers, stamped with Dragon Age faction emblems, and backed with colored ribbons matching the faction colors
  • Includes bonus in-game items

While it looks quite cool, and I like the design of that book, I’m not sure it’s worth the $105.84 they’re asking for it over on Amazon. It doesn’t include the game or a figurine. So some leather ribbons and a guide. Oh, and a pen. I’d rather just buy a pretty book and pen and write my own guide.

I’m very keen for this game, and inclined to buy a Collector’s Edition. However, I don’t think I’ll be picking this up – I’m not a big fan of guides, even if this one is rather pretty. Do you guys buy into the Collector’s Edition stuff, or does it all just seem like unnecessary clutter? What do you think should be included (beyond all the DLC, of course)?

    The best part is the pen & bookmarks probably only cost around $0.84.

      Yeah, the DLC ink is where the money is at.

    Enough with these lame Christmas reject gifts. For more than a R1000 they can throw in a bottle of half decent whiskey. Label the bottle Dragons Piss for all I care.

      Yeah, back then ALL of them were “collectors editions” as standard

      I read the entire Warcraft 2 manual the day before a Geography exam in High School. I mean seriously? Erosion? Who really cares?

          Pffffft 65% or something like that, as if I cared.

        I used to love reading lore, was a lot more fun than textbooks.

    I would have gotten the collectors edition but from what I heard it is not coming to South Africa?

    Where can I order the collectors edition locally?, the guys at our Bt Games store here says it wont be coming to SA? I cant seem to trust online stores anymore, since the whole ‘dead frog in a box’ thing…. ugh…(shudders)

    Sheesh not at that price…. If I wanted a stylish notebook I’d just head to Typo in canal walk….

    The actual collector’s edition is actually called the inquisitor’s edition only available at gametop

    At a whooping 169.99 USD

    Well if you deduct the price if the game. Which would be $60.00 and the dlc which would prob be $10.00 then the hardcover book would $20-$25 at any retailer and the last 10 or so bucks for case/pen/bookmarks, then the price really isn’t that unreasonable.
