When I clicked to preview it, it took up my whole screen so I assumed it'd be the same when posting it. Sorry.

A volleyball would have been more appropriate, considering it's associated with the beach more.

Quite possibly the weirdest pre-order bonus I've ever seen. Unless it's a form of (un)subliminal messaging...

Only in 'Merica. Really though -- first a free shave and now this.

What this really means is that Best Buy had a surplus of footballs nobody was buying, so they asked Ubi if they could print the AC logo on it and watch the footballs fly out like hot cakes.

You fools!

Cant you see??

This is a hint for where the next game is going to take place... hmmm.. so it seems that the next game is going to take place in the 21st century.. perhaps during some american football event.. In Britain we call it it Rugby.

That is all.

It's not that strange....
Fall is football season ... =/
Cool little novelty item for the new fans AC3 brought in.
The following statement isnt love nor hate..it's fact...most console owners are casual gamers....
In America casual gamers tend to be teen to mid 30s guys that love football - they buy a console for 4 series and 4 series only - COD, FIFA, 2K (includes WWE now), and Madden.
AC just gave us a native american protagonist and was America F**k yeah! in it's commercials..so now there is a 5th annual series for the casual gamers.
That's all it is...
Assassin's Creed has turned into a casual game =x

Shade is right, we don't want people to play outside, we want people to play AC4

I've seen this many times but never quite understood. Who are casual gamers exactly?

Casual Gamer's are those that just play games for entertainment value only and do not really care about the franchise or anything associated with it. They pick up the game, play it, put it down and go on to something else. Someone who really doesn't appreciate a good game or really cares what the game is about, as long as they get some satisfaction out of it.

Definitions may differ, but that is my definition of the "Casual Gamer".

I wasn't aware playing games as entertainment is wrong.


They pick up the game, play it, put it down and go on to something else.

So they have a life outside games and don't constantly moan and whine on forums?

I thought satisfaction was the biggest thing one should look to be deriving from a game. Good to know.

Seems legit.

A very ill-defined segment of the gaming market, which is where we get goofy promos like this from. Companies covet the casual market, but the variety of skill-levels, desire for investment in a story and available time is so vast that no one can even determine what the mythical 'sweet spot' is, let alone hit it. XD

No Casual gamers can be obsessed with a series..but they aren't around all of the time..they only show up once a year to gaming and when they do it's to play MP..these types have always existed..even before online MP existed
I was definitely a casual type until lat last year lol
They are unconcerned with mechanics and story...they go for fun and nothing but fun..which is not bad at all.
I was just saying AC is just now one of those casual non sport games like GOW and GTA are.
The bros play AC now..so here..have a football lol
