Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Boxed Edition Possible

GameInformer has video interview with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot talking about Ubi's publishing strategy as next-gen consoles approach. As noted on Joystiq, he gives an outlook on sales of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, saying the "mini-AAA" title has sold more than one million copies since launch. This was all via digital distribution, but Guillemot allows for the possibility of a retail edition of the game, saying "maybe we'll go retail at one point so we'll be able to achieve a bit more." Given the 1980s throwback style of the game, we can only hope this is in a huge box, and will include a 100-page manual, and maybe a cloth map, though 5╝" floppies are probably out of the question. Thanks nin.

Wow, not sold in retail stores as a box? I'd buy it!

Steam version is Uplay too.

Yeah I just read that on the FC3 Steam forums, what a shame. At that point, might as well get the Uplay only version, and have one less DRM Layer.

The benefit of getting the Steam version is that it automatically works with the Steam overlay. If you get the Uplay version, you have to manually create a Steam shortcut to the game.

But yeah, Uplay is pretty lame. Really wish Ubisoft would just ditch it and switch to Steamworks.

By the way amazon.com has the downloadable version of FarCry3 on sale for $15

http://www.amazon.com/Ubisoft-41064Far-Cry-31-Download/dp/B0088Q8MXA

Once again, the Steam sale price gets beaten. Nice find, I might as well finally buy this.

*EDIT* Oh god dammit, it appears this version is the Uplay version. Hrm... save 5 bucks and use Uplay, or spend 5 more for the Steam version...

*EDIT* Part 2, wow, apparently even the Steam version requires Uplay. Waiting for this to drop to 5 bucks or less.

Finally managed to snag an import "boxed" copy form overseas, complete with audio cd (which I was after).

Maybe they'll expand that to everywhere...
