Next-gen loving pirates circle UK in anticipation of PS4/Assassin's Creed 4 bundle

Assassin's Creed 4 PS4 bundle shares its booty with the UK
Come November 29, those in the UK will be able to purchase a PlayStation 4 bundle that includes Assassin's Creed 4 (and nothing else).

Though that's great news for citizens of a nation that spent the Age of Discovery actively funding piracy, it's also the sum total of what we know about the bundle. Ubisoft has yet to divulge pricing information for the package, or any word on if these bundles will be available in limited quantities.

We have contacted Ubisoft for further clarification.
