View Full Version : Where are you pre-ordering from?

hey I've been looking at various sites like Gamestop and Circuit City (which doesn't even have AC listed yet) and i'm wondering, where are you guys gonna pre-order AC from, and what are the special things you get from it (such as, I heard Gamestop is giving out a poster.)

One other thing, I have heard that Gamestop is notorious for messing up pre-ordered stuff, any truth to that?


Me, personally, I think I'll get it from Circuit City, just because they are trustworthy and have always come through in the past.

Amazon, because of the shipping process, sometimes I get my pre-orders a day or two early. It also had 10 off and I'm really not bothered about the limited edition so it's perfect for me.

I am from the UK, and I usually trust Amazon UK for the speed of their delivery.

But from what I have found, Play.com offers the Limited Edition for the same price as Amazon.

My experience with Play.com so far is that, they are slow, I ordered a copy of game in one Tuesday, they dare arrived next Tuesday! Although this is rare, but normally they are 2 days longer than Amazon UK.

So for those UK Assassin buyers out there, make your choice here, unless better offers comes up, or Amazon change their offer.

I am getting it from gamestop and have had it reserved for about 5 months. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif But to answer your question about them messing up, I have only had it happen to me once. It was big though, it was for Gears of War. The truck that was bringing the games from were ever the factory is left without the games and didn't notice till they got like 2 days away so they had to go back and I was scrambling for a copy of it. But Best Buy had tons of copies and I played it for 2 days straight (day and night, no sleep) and there was much merryment and joy.

I'll be pre-ordering from play.com aswell, but only when i know the pc release date, also when you pre-order something do you get one the rlease date or before, or mabye even after?!

The purpose of pre-ordering is that you can get it on the day of release without fear of it selling out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I suppose so, but i just find them cases annoying. i prefer having the normal Dvd cases, they are slimmer and fit on my shelf. i only have limited space up there. about 3 more games id say http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

dunno. some sites don't even have the console versions up yet. perhaps a different release date? (yes yes i know, don't turn it into a release date thread) It is a possibility though, right?

I got Limited edition from Game Crazy. I got a receipt for the Xbox 360 version, but they didn't actually ask me... so I'm keeping my receipt in case they try to push a PS3 game on me. Not likely, sure, but maybe worth the trouble.

gameplay.co.uk is the ideal one to pr-orderig from in the UK then.

I have ordered from them before, but I can't remember the products arrived early.

Although there is not yet an official release date, but 30th of Nov seems to be on other game retailers as well, so that should be normal.

Why the sad face?

Please don't worry, there is a LE for both PC and Xbox, if you look on Amazon or other game retailers online, you will get some info on them.

and there is a screenshot of the Bonus DVD for PC.Does that mean that there really is going to be a LE for PC?

Anyway, I think I'm going to go with Amazon.
