Do they do that at the 24-hour Tescos then? Sell games the minute it turns Friday? I know they do it with select games/consoles in dedicated game shops, but that's their core business - didn't know supermarkets did that.

I live near Waterlooville, so I would have to do that at the 24-hour Asda; however I have work tomorrow so I can't and besides my play.com order should arrive tomorrow...

I don't condone this.... but I know of people that buy it at 12 at asda/tesco, play it, then when their play order has arrived take the sealed copy that comes through the post to tesco/asda and ask for a refund.....

I rang my local Asda and spoke to the electricals department. The woman said she is on today and will be pricing them all up ready for the shelves tomorrow, she said if i ring her today at 4 today she will put one behind customer services for me so i can pick it up at midnight tonight!

She is so gonna get dry humped if i see her...

I reckon the best place to get it tomorrow is a small independent store, for starters there is always a huge queue in game, also small stores sometimes have limited edition stuff because all the big stores have sold out already.

I got a local game and a small indie store quite close to it, i always choose the indie store for those reasons. Also he always gives me a shrink wrapped copy, for some reason i hate it when people in game/whatever handle the disc first and put it in the case for you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I know exactly what you mean! i hate it when they go into their drawers flick through all the games then pull it out and pop it into the case! i prefer it when you know your the first person to touch the game (presuming machines put the game into the case) and when you take it out you hear some kinda angelic music as you place it into your machine and... um ok i need this game now!

Agree, nothing smells as good as a freshy opened game which just had the shrinkwrap taken off.

Btw i dont know if GAME is usually open at midnight, mine is inside a shopping centre which closes at 5pm or something, so it has to close. Maybe the ones in the high street are open then http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Errmm kinda, They normally stack shelfs in the night while its quiet. The woman at asda said to me they normally put it out at 7-8am? But as i asked nicely she arranged a midnight pick up for me. Ring you local 24 hour stores and ask the entertainment department.

I would say no mate sorry! they usually open for new consoles and blockbuster sequels like halo. But i very much doubt they would open for Assassins, which is a shame http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
Anyone else see the ad last night for the game during that Gordon Ramsey show on channel 4? it was pretty cool and id never seen it before it had a sond which sounded very similar.

Considering what you said about the when they take the game disc from a drawer i probably will get it wrapped from tesco http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

EDIT: wait does anyone know do tesco's have to get the disc also? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

At the moment asda is definitely looking more reliable than tesco for the midnight buyers.

Btw i didnt thank you anthony! I wouldn't have thought of calling asda if you hadn't posted it here. I called my local tesco and they dont even sell xbox 360 games! i was so gutted.

Ok to keep it short cus i dont want to type it all again lol. Legally they can sell after midnight but you should still call and ask ahead because that doesnt automatically mean they will have it out of boxs and easy to get to ready for you to buy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

yep i ave done it before.

technically they cant prevent you from asking for it as the release date is the 16th and it would technically be the 16th

i have done it twice before with other games..no they werent important ones and the person stacking the shelves just goes off to the storeroom and comes back with it.

and to the other guy, yeah port solent ..hehe

Been playing it all day and its awesome, by far the best game i've played in years! Takes a bit of time to get through the tutorial stages but it eases you in gently. Only downside on the ps3 atleast is that i've had it crash on me twice. nothing too serios as it auto saves often enough but freaked me out the first time. Thinking its my ps3 getting a bit too warm running for 7 hrs straight.
