I went into my local GAME today. I asked them why Assassin's Creed was removed from their website and they said stock has been recalled due to the age rating not being marked on the game DVD (though it is clearly on the DVD case).

This may impact on GAME's release date by up to 2 weeks :S

Thinking all is not lost, I'll just go to Zavvi... There stock has not even arrived which they thought very odd, I explained GAME's situation and they reckon that is why there stock has not arrived, that it has probably been recalled http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

So, I hope I am wrong but for the high street retailer at least it looks like stock may not be in for tomorrow.

its more likly they have sold out on pre orders so will give an excuse instead of saying they have none to spend on launch day. try a supermarket if you know any that sell pc games as they dont take pre orders and will have more chance of having stock tomorrow.

GAME were kind enough to show me the DVD case and disc I did not see any age rating on the DVD disc as stupid as that sounds, I can't believe some idiot made this mistake. The GAME website rarely takes anything off that is out of stock, it merely shows it as out of stock (search their site for the Witcher for an example).

what is more strange is game has taken down the listing for assassins creed on their web site and the last time I saw them taking away the ability to order/preorder was with wii as they had far too many pre orders for the stock.

While I can't comment on the GAME matter at this stage, you'll definitely be able to buy the game in a variety of shops when it releases tomorrow. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Got mine in the post today, when i got home from work... big shiny metal box with 4 art/postcards... from play.com .. Collectors edition number: 91966

just installed... plays like a dream, though it`ll take a while to get the hang of the controls.

Ah, I was wondering why I could no longer see it on Game's website. That explains it then.

Well, here we don't have any "own" age restrictions so sometimes it's kinda confusing. On my AC Director's Cut copy I got today, it says you should be 18 on the box(the French restriction) but on the CD it says you should be 16(the German restriction). Now if I was a parent who'd care about what my kids play and who doesn't understand anything at all about games, I'd be confused.

Dont forget the total lack of ability to buy it on steam dispite it being advertised for predorder on there, what a mess!!

I believe it's available on Steam but currently only in the US, same thing as with the rest of the currently available Ubi catalogue. I haven't heard any information about it possibly extending to Europe yet.

Yes indeed it is open to the US but why would your restrict global medium to one region? Makes no sense at all if your going to use steam use it properly to do a global simultanious release. Anything other than that and your encoraging people to pirate the game, when will people realise that?

I preordered my game on amazon now for weeks they have been saying that the release date is Apr 11 but now when i check the site it says Nov 4 2008.... strange considering some people already have their games apparently.

they probly have that many pre orders they wont take any more as game did the same thing when the wii came out as the pre orders went past the stock they got. the fact is this is going to be popular so any of the big sites will probly sell out. when I looked last night play still had it in stock tho.

I was under the impression it's available worldwide through Steam. They're certainly advertising it as such. Every time I log in they're urging me to buy it and I'm in the UK

Are all Ubi games available in UK?
I cant buy it - I live in Czech Republic and I also tried to buy it in Germany.
