The only hiccup would be if Best Buy refuses the return for some reason, but I'm premier silver. Are both Amazon and Best Buy editions identical? ISBN, etc? Is a sealed copy of Assassin's Creed 3 ps3 easy to return at Best Buy?
Some games have different bar codes from different retailers, especially the games with content inside the box that comes with exclusive things for each retailer. If Best Buy had anything exclusive for preordering/buying early, it most likely has a different bar code. The only way to know for sure is to go to Best Buy, look at the bar code of a copy in the store, and then ask someone for the bar code of a copy they received from Amazon to be 100% sure. As long as the bar code for the one you are returning is the same as the one you bought, and it is still sealed, returning to Best Buy is easy. They should give you no issues.
