Rolled up/folded up I bet it would occupy a heft amount of space. . . It was shown to come to that guy in a decent sized wooden case. So to save on space I am sure that the north American limited edition will come with a flag but it will be a much thinner crappier quality one, which Ubisoft has already confirmed. That is, Ubisoft has confirmed that the nice quality flag "is not the same type of flag" in the CE.

Thanks for clearing that up! That was exactly what I thought it meant. I had already seen that article with the press box. That flag looks awesome. I was hoping that the one with the CE was the same... I am no longer interested in anything from this CE... Shame there wasn't more. Was expecting something better for the NA CE! >.<

Feel gutted for you guys. Ubishaft did you over again! >.<

Yeah, I couldn't agree more. I was refreshing search results all day long hoping to see an updated article to find that Ubisoft had finally released another CE that was "staggerly amazing" (or whatever Ubisoft had said it would be) but alas. . . it is past 5:00 eastern time here in the States. I believe you said it the best Cosmic, Ubisoft did US over again. hehe The States win some we loose some but it seems to be a reoccurring trend with the Assassin's Creed CE's atleast. Ah well. I don't even want the US A.C. CE at all.

Is the Freedom edition better value because less will be issued ?

I'll give a mixed answer. The freedom edition is a better value by far over the US Limited Edition. However, from what I have read thus far the US Limited Edition will be even more limited in numbers produced than the UK Freedom edition. I'd still say go for the Freedom edition though.

better value because it has washington's journal, it have an exclusive lithograph and a more exclusive looking packaging. for american limited, I could care less about the flag or even if they add a replica of the declaration of independence... it is a very dissappointing edition.

It's a good thing you guys cleared up the flag issue. I'm not sure what the final product will be but I'm pretty sure it's going to be disappointing. Back to the Freedom Edition...

Was really hoping to get that exact same one Joystiq got...
