I'm going to guess a permanent price drop is in it's future. But none-the-less great deal. I need to get through Brotherhood still, but I've learned my lessons with AC games. See you at the inevitable $20 sale.

I'm glad I locked in the TIV for $30 before the price drop..

I love this series but for some reason I found myself not wanting to grind out the complete experience with this game.. I really enjoyed brotherhood but this came off as a pretty shallow experience compared with that game..

This price is good and if you played the rest you still need to play this one..

Any word if this is a late-breaking DOD - or just a PM?

Want it - but I'm waiting on some Amazon Trade in credit...

I had $10 in promotional certificates and $30 in gift cards so ordered it and locked in a trade to convert the certificate into actual credit so I can use it on anything. Thanks for the post.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Of course, that's my luck. Just bought it used for $38ish. O well.

Game is two months old, this is a sale, even MW3 was $40 after it came out somewhere if I recall correctly. It being this low doesn't mean much IMO. I do admit ubisoft games do drop fast, but there is no need for any chicken littles.

Any other opinions on the price?

I just recently started the AC series and beat the first two now. Im going to start Brotherhood soon and then obviously would want to move to Revelations. Any ideas about how long this price will stick, if it is just a temporary sale or if its permanent and either way if you think that it will go down further in the next month or so?

Too bad Best Buy wont price match it, and let us use the magazine coupon with it. I already own the game, but would've jumped on a second copy for a buddy of mine, if Best Buy price matched.

I was at my local Game Stop last night and they also had it new for $29.99. Looks like a price drop.

Technically, I believe they are calling it a price match to Gamestop. But $39.99 is in its future as the new MSRP.

That's a good price for this. I ended up getting it for $40 with the Wal Mart pricing glitch at launch (and I wanted the free PS3 copy of the first game anyway).

Sad thing is I own all the Assassin's Creed games because I spent a combine total of under $60 for all of it, but I haven't played one yet. Hopefully I will after Mass Effect 3.

Will wait for the $20 price point on this game. I liked AC2 but I couldn't get into Brotherhood as much.

But why is Brotherhood still $35 on Amazon? I've played 1 and 2, but have been waiting for Brotherhood to reach $20. Maybe I've just been missing the sales...

You missed out. Best buy did a $9.99 on brotherhood about a month ago. With 1 on ac:r and it price mistaked at Walmart on release, I picked them all up for about $60.

Yep you have been missing the sales, could have picked up for $9.99 on Bestbuy in November, it will probably become a greatest hits version soon though, so look for a more universal price drop then.

I'm waiting for the game to hit $20 too. Too much on my backlog anyways. Still working through all the Riddler stuff in Batman AC and got quite a number other games on X360 and PC during holidays. Heck I'm not even sure I'll bother to preorder ME3.

I guess I should have been more specific: I'm looking for the 360 version; the Best Buy AC:B sale was only for the PS3 version I believe.

Thanks, just locked this in & NBA2k12 for a total of $49.50, exactly what I paid for them together. My backlog is big so by the time I rebuy them I'll get them for like $20 together:D

And other games are $48 before they even come out. The price of a game means nothing in terms of quality or sales.

Great games can cost $10 while crappy games can cost $60, it all depends on the demand of the market. If the games sell extremely well but then sales die off they will lower the price of a game to increase sales. There are some exceptions to the rules, but they are very few and far between. Either those games are somewhat hard to find and slip through the cracks because they lack mass appeal. But if sales stay steady at $60 then the price remains. People who buy video games fall into two categories: those who buy it ASAP or those who wait for a price drop. It's better to sell 10 copies at $40 then 5 copies at $60.
