(short version in bold)
So i headed down to my local gamestop today because i wanted to preorder assassins creed limited edition, but when I got there the worker said it wasn't found on the computer the guy said he couldn't do much else except wait for the manager to get back.
So I waited and when the manager got back he told me that he got an email last night saying that they will no longer be taking preorders on the limited edition in store so I just preordered the regular version, and i'm now very upset i guess i shouldn't have waited http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

No offence but what did you expect would happen? My advice is try another place. Still your lucky over here in Brisbane we can't even preorder the limited edition. They hand them out on first come first serve basis.

With most any Limited / Collectors versions at Game Stop/EB Games and other game retailers they are allowed to sell pre-orders on those up till 1-2 weeks before the release, its because there is more in producing those copies.

In AC's case theres the metal tin box, the comic book thing or whatever from Penny Arcade, then the Strat Guide, its not just the disk, cover and booklet they need. In the week before release they really wouldn't have time to make those extra copies to meet the pre-order demand.

Hope that made sense http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Haha...Yeah i see your point. So is Ubisoft running out of Art books to put in the Limited Edition? Or maybe it's just his store.

The art book is something seperate from the limited ed copies, its for any pre-order. and its not just that store, the 3 game stops here are all done taking pre-orders on the limited ed as off tues this week, but you can pre-order the reg ed up until the day before release since they usually have a few extra copies with the shipment to put on shelf.

when they do the limited ed for pre-orders they try to make sure they have enough to cover all those, after that then they will produce a few say 200 more before they stop making those versions.

Dude, just go to Best buy or Circuit city or any other electronic stores. And if you don't find the limited edition, get the normal one, it's the same game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I plan on getting the Normal Edition. Not really a
heart breaker to miss out on the goodies. Same game anyways http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I do regret getting the Halo 3 special edition. That game is total **** and I'm planning on selling it.

Yeah, bought the normal one of Halo 3 as well. Not the best game, but ill play it once in a while.

I might trade it in for Call of Duty 4. The beta was sick.

Yeah Beta in COD 4 was crazy fun. i would for sure trade Halo 3 in for COD 4.

I wonder how much I woukd get at gamestop for Halo 3 and Bioshock.

Well, I think those two would be enough for COD 4. Maybe another used game?

Just about $60. Give or take $5 either way.

its not that i didnt expect it to happen, but i was waiting to see a review of the game before i go spend 70 clams on it, it might just be my store... but im still a little disappointed, oh well i still will have the 60 dollar version
i might try and get to the gamestop i preordered at early, and see if theyll give me a limited edition, but i highly doubt it
only reason i wanted it was for the figure so its no real big loss for me

I am not surprised that Gamestop sold out. In my store there are no more copies of any version. I have to contact my supplier today to see if I can get more to meet the demand.

I preordered the Limited Edition monthes ago and when i heard about the preorder artbook i was mad so i called my Gamestop. They said they werent giving it out. Does that mean they just arent participating or maybe they will give it out when it is purchased? Any ideas? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

I asked the same question to my local gamestop. and they said that the art book applies to all pre orders. I have the LE and I am getting the additional art book too.
P.S. I pre ordered this long before I opened my own store or I might have bought it from my self. It's a little cheaper that way.
