I didn't make it!
I may be in the wrong area for this, but the game looks awesome. Anyone else gonna get it? They have some special offer with a limited edition.
The Limited Edition version of Sid Meier’s Pirates! will include a single DVD-ROM containing the game itself, a “Making of Pirates” video, special game content unique to the Limited Edition, and a version of the original Pirates! game.
I also found this for anyone interested...
• Experience an all-new story built upon the most fun and compelling features of the original Pirates! game
• Live out multiple quests through a non-linear, open life timeline where every decision poses distinct challenges and possibilities
• Witness the consequences of your actions in current events throughout the Pirates! world
• Battle, overtake and command 27 different ship types, enhanced with assorted ammo, cannon and other upgrades
• Take on various foes including merchant and military captains, ferocious pirates, evil gentry and even rival suitors — each with different skills and abilities
• Confront enemies on board ships, in seedy taverns, on the ramparts and even at the Governor’s mansion
• Wield weapons — or anything within your reach — as you fence against foes
• Engage in fierce naval battles fighting single enemies or multiple ships
• Sneak into towns, escape out of prisons, navigate around adversaries and surprise unsuspecting vessels
• Dispatch landing parties of buccaneers in strategic battles to take over entire cities
• Increase your riches and impress the governor’s daughter with your charm, fame, heroism — even your dancing abilities

It sounds great, the thread will be fine here but would of fitted better in General gaming, no worries though. Only problem is this is console war forum so don't mention what platform it's on or the kids will argue.
