I intend to pre-order Assassin's Creed: Revelations from GameStop, the title was followed by "Signature Edition". What does it mean? And, why can't I pre-order digital version (so I can download it and all the bonus), GameStop says it's not available in my location (Vietnam). But I can still pre-order non-Digital version.
Normally it means "We really love you, please love us back with extra money/promotion/etc.?" Same idea as a Limited Edition where you might get extra swag along with the game.
I have Window 7 Signature Edition, which is just Ultimate in a fancy case and I think I got a deck of playing cards and a poster with it or something. Same idea but your disc will be a game :P and Anna's right that you need to give us the game name in order for us to tell you specifics.
Edit: AC:R has the following in the Signature Edition:
The Signature Edition will grab pre-order investors a bonus singleplayer mission, an exclusive multiplayer character, weapons capacity upgrades, an animated short film and an Assassin's Creed: Revelations original game score soundtrack
A signature edition is kind of like a collector edition; they are made for loyal fans as kind of a signature from the author, in the form of special features like:
A game box of higher quality and art.
Including exclusive content; in-game as well as posters/book/artwork...
As Anna Lear mentions; this depends from company to company, game to game.
So seach what the extra signature edition has to offer you and consider if it's worth buying it...
I once saw an under cover police agent wear a HL2 T-shirt, he must be a great fan of Half-Life 2...
As mentioned by Matthew, the "signature edition" is a collector's edition of a game.
It says right on the page what comes with the Signature edition. On top of the normal game, this deluxe edition of Assassin's Creed also comes with:
- A Bonus Singleplayer Gameplay Mission
- An Exclusive Multiplayer Character
- 3 Weapon Capacity Upgrades
- An Animated Short Film
- The "Assassin's Creed Revelations" Original Game Score Soundtrack
