Tis the season to be charitable (fa-la-la-la-laaa), and to play games (la-la-la-laaa). Ubisoft has put together a pretty wonderful Assassin's Creed III pack containing all sorts of amazing stuff, which will be auctioned off to raise money for the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation. We're told it'd make a great Christmas gift for someone you love very much, but... you could just keep it for yourself.
So! What do you get?
Firstly - a copy of the Assassin's Creed III Freedom Edition, which contains a Figurine, Steel Book Case, Exclusive Artwork and a bunch of Bonus Game Content.
Then, there's a copy of Assassin's Creed III: Liberation for PlayStation Vita.
Then! An Assassin's Creed III backpack, Tomahawk USB, Steel Postcard, Steel Book, Notebook, Belt Buckle, Lead Figurines, Iron-on Patch, two (2!) Key Rings, and even more digital game content.
...and did we mention it all comes packed in a custom-built trunk?
There are only ten of these editions floating around the world, and Ubisoft Australia has snagged eight of them, to sell in a series of eBay auctions, starting today and running until December 17th, with all proceeds going to Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. (And yes, we're told that the dates have been picked carefully to provide for Christmas delivery. Hooray!)
Here are the dates to put into your calendar - the first auction lasts for 5 days, with the following auctions lasting for just 3. Be quick!
To bid, head to http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110983331790 and figure out how much you can afford to spend.
Here's the full, nitty-gritty details of what exactly you're bidding for:

I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
