Which AssCreed Revelations Is Which?

It is now par for the course for most big-name videogames to release a special edition designed to enrapture the more passionate/nerdly fans, ensure more pre-orders and make a few bonus groats on each copy sold. It is also now par for the course for many big-name videogames to include bonus DLC, skins and that sort of thing when pre-ordered at certain retailers - designed to ensure the promotional support of those hollow-eyed high-street rotters who so regularly place their hands around the neck of the games industry. For Assassin's Creed: Revelations, both of these steps have been taken. And then some.

There are no less than seven different editions of Ubisoft's latest man-stabber due, each with its own bonus content and tchotchkes, plus assorted pre-order DLC shenanigans on top of that. And that's before you throw in whatever they end up doing with the download version(s) of the game. What fresh madness is this?

Let Wikipedia be your guide to trying to start to begin to figure it out, or click the above image for a legible version of whatever the hell's going on here. Admittedly, a couple of these are territory-specific variations of each other, but even so. Good grief.

I'll just stick to the standard edition, cheers. I can live with less for the sake of peace, less codes to type in and no spiky plastic junk in my house. I am very much looking forward to the game itself, though - Brotherhood was a splendid old time.
