  • Pre-Order Offers*: Many pre-orders come with exclusive discounts, offers or additional content at no extra charge.

Thanks but no thanks, the ridiculous pricing puts me off from preordering from the store.

I saw that there was a combi offer for both AC3 and liberation. Will the retail versions also come with the option to buy both together at a discount price? Because that would not only be awesome but also the sweet spot for most gamers to buy both.

 
ssorc_bro 8 June, 2012 @ 5:17 pm   3

@2 It’s hardly a discount rate, £85, that’s £42.50 each, you’ll be able to find them for less easily elsewhere.

At that pricing structure? Another company who has become a money making hoe! What happened to giving the gamer’s what they want? These companies are so out of touch with the real gamer. Ubisoft, EA/DICE, step back into the real world!!!
Pre-order anywhere but the store it WILL be cheaper and you will get the rubbish game a day early too!

I would appreciate it if you guys applied the plus discount to Assassins Creed Revelations. Its not up yet.

JACK_KIGGIN_666 8 June, 2012 @ 5:59 pm   10

Why pay £49.99 for the standard edition with ‘an extra bonus mission’ When I could buy the Join or Die edition that comes with ‘A bonus mission, George Washington’s notebook, A collector’s box, Connor’s medallion, multiplayer package’ AND the game for £55.
PSN Store is broken….

Qelgon 8 June, 2012 @ 6:34 pm   12

@3 I know but its a discount price for buying both on psn instead of buying both separate on psn. Now if they offered a twin pack for retail we would (hopefully) see a better saving from say amazon etc.

 
ssorc_bro 8 June, 2012 @ 7:23 pm   13

@6, not saying to not buy the game, it’s a great series and AC3 looks badass, but at that price, it’s pretty much day light robbery, I’ll stick to my online sites that offer real competitive pricing.

@13, Yeah hopefully there will be some sweet double pack for a nice price, if not, well, least you’ll know it’ll still be cheaper than the store lol

 
Nightmare966 8 June, 2012 @ 8:42 pm   14

Guys, if you take a look at the description, there’s a discount for future DLC on the digital version.

I’m all against this full-price on digital too, but hey, at least Ubisoft is offering something to make it up.

 
ApokNyneWheel 8 June, 2012 @ 9:03 pm   15

I’m just disappointed that Ubisoft aren’t offering an edition that has all three single player missions with it. The Freedom Edition has two of them, but the Special Edition has one that the FE doesn’t have. It’s made it difficult for me to commit, because ideally I want everything.

What does everyone else reckon?

 
Mr-Quest 8 June, 2012 @ 10:13 pm   16

@ApokNyneWheel the freedom edition and the rest will get also 3 single player mission extra but the 3th will be announced when the game will be released.

 
Lejenko 9 June, 2012 @ 12:08 am   17

No thanks!! disk version for me, saves money and hard drive space, simples!!

 
JamieIII 9 June, 2012 @ 2:31 am   18

Just so I’m clear about this:

Join or Die Edition – £55

Physical game
Collector’s box
Connor’s Medallion
Washington’s Notebook
Ghost of War bonus mission
Sharpshooter multiplayer pack
Colonial Assassin weapon & costume pack

PSN Gold Edition – £85

Digital game
A Dangerous Secret, Ghost of War & Lost Mayan Ruins bonus missions
An unspecified discount on future DLC

Titchy_Penguin 9 June, 2012 @ 7:55 am   19

You can get the freedom edition for that much!

 
ApokNyneWheel 9 June, 2012 @ 11:58 am   20

The product description doesn’t state that you get the Ghost Of War and the Lost Mayan Ruins bonus missions along with A Dangerous Secret if you pre-order the Gold Edition. If you got all three, I’d consider it. Can anyone confirm this for definite?

 
jojo13_iscool 9 June, 2012 @ 3:14 pm   21

if you buy ac3 preoder once and you cancel it can you buy it again

 
a7md1990 9 June, 2012 @ 4:09 pm   22

hey guys.. I can’t purchase the Gold Edition!, it seems that the maximum amount for a single transaction is 99.99$, how I’m I supposed to add the 129.99$ edition to my shopping cart? it keeps giving me an error.

 
SoulChimera 9 June, 2012 @ 4:20 pm   23

Just wanted to echo what #10 said.

The discount for Plus users still hasn’t been added to the Assassins Creed Revelations E3 deal. It says it’s £15.99 for us but only comes up at £19.99.

Please update it before the offer expires tomorrow.

 
Zulu1879 10 June, 2012 @ 5:30 pm   24

want to buy all my games digitally now as have a 1tb hdd installed. however they make it hard by charging full price for the digital version where as shops offer them at a tenner off. digital games should be no more than 35 quid as they have no disc/box/shipping and they cant be tradede in. really want to support game companies and sony but they do make it difficult for themselves.

 
yume_2501 10 June, 2012 @ 5:58 pm   25

there is a problem with the plus offer for AC revelations (and it ends today…) The game should be 24 € for puls members, but the price if you wanna buy it it’s 29,99 (normal offer)

 
SoulChimera 10 June, 2012 @ 8:12 pm   26

The deal still isn’t fixed. Its due to expire in a few hours too.

Roxas598 11 June, 2012 @ 1:07 pm   27

what the smeg? the deal was up this morning and just as I went to buy it it disappeared? you cant put a deal up for an hour when it was suppoeed to be up all weekend :/

 
guyvernoid22 12 June, 2012 @ 10:25 am   28

dont be mistaken by this discount on future dlc it will probably be £1.50 saving which means even if you do buy the retail verson you will still save or break even anyways even if you pay full price for the dlc the saving is then pointless.

 
Redpop1 12 June, 2012 @ 1:22 pm   29

Guys, while I would love to buy all my games on the store, this price of €70 for a game that will be €45 in HMV and €50 in gamestop is a major off put. I love that we are getting the games in the store and the pre order idea is brilliant, but if this is the price maker for retail games in the store then digital games will never be inbraced. There is no middle man here, no store, no boxing, no manual so surly the cost of this should enable you to sell them cheaper. I wouldn’t even mind if they where the same cost as in hmv/gamestop, but as i siad while people can go to the brick store and get it at €50, they will not pay €70 for it, no matter how convenient it is for them.

slickjones 13 June, 2012 @ 10:27 pm   30

In Sweden it’s 1179 SEK which equals €127 / £102 / $160. This is a bloody outrage.

Frankly I find it disgusting that they charge this price. I’m not against the idea of releasing games digitally, but why does it always cost a lot more than a physical game, which has to be manufactured and delivered, and includes the game on a disc (so you can lend to a friend/sell it on), a box to display it on your shelf, etc.

Sure, the convenience of a digital download can be considered a premium, but not to the point of it costing more than a physical product.

They’re taking advantage of all the hype the game is receiving, knowing that there will be people dumb enough to pay this much for a game, and four months before it’s out too.
