Rumor: Ubisoft Bundling Three Digital Hits

It isn't a bad idea: take a few high-profile downloadable games and bundle them together on a physical disc.

Microsoft already did it last year by delivering a trio of XBLA hits (Limbo, Splosion Man, and Trials HD) and now, it appears Ubisoft might do the same thing.

According to GamerZines citing UK retailer Play, the French publisher is planning a three-pack for brick-and-mortar retailers. It'll include Beyond Good & Evil HD, From Dust, and Outland. The retail listing has the package slated for a March 23 release for £14.99 (around $20) and it's coming to both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. However, no word yet on whether or not Ubisoft will bring this triple play to the US.

By the way, if you missed BG&E on the PS2, you should definitely look into the high-def version; this is one game that withstands the test of time quite well.

Yeah, this is a good idea indeed.
So, Ubisoft is french?! I didn't know that! That makes them "ours" for those of us who live in Europe then. No wonder I liked Far Cry 2 so much! :)

French in origin, but with a huge presence in Canada (Montreal and now Toronto)...probably most of their employees.

All three have demos.

From Dust is a God game; Outland is a platformer.

Bring this to the US damnit, I want!

I already have the PS2 disc BG&E, and the From Dust D/L, but I'd still grab this one in a New York second, especially for only around $20.

Bring it Ubi

I'd be interested to see if these come state-side. I wanted to play these, but haven't bought them considering the backlog of games I currently have.

This kinda flies in the face of physical media being outdated and the industry moving towards download only. I guess publishers still see value (and profit) in physical media.

For those people that still live off the grid, like myself, this is a great deal. The only internet connection I have is a mobile hotspot through verizon because that is the only option where I live for decent internet, and that is capped at 5 gb. That really limits my video game downloads and online play, so hopefully it does come here because I would snatch that up in a millisecond.

That deal is a no brainer to me with three titles that are actually on my shopping list. I have recently bought a ubi HoMM package with a christmas deal from Steam. They really know how to bundle their games for sweet deals.
