Just left Wal-Mart on Independence in Springfield, MO. Had the clerk get it out of the case. She rang it up and Immediatly hit a button to override it. It required a Manager Override. I saw the $39.96 flash on the screen before she hit the button. She walked away and came back, redid the transaction and let me buy it for $43 w/tax. I asked her what was going on. She said they were suppose to be putting new barcodes on them and it was a price mistake, she said she was suppose to override it to $59.96. As I was walking out there was a guy pulling all of the copies out of the case.

I was not going to buy this but for $40 w/the first one included I had to. I have 2 & Brotherhood so this gives me all 4 to play. Thanks OP.

Here is the Walmart bonus



The Armor of Brutus was a virtually unbreakable set of armor, once in the possession of the Assassin Marcus Junius Brutus. It was the strongest armor of the Rennaissance era and was found alongside the Dagger of Brutus.
The armor was stolen and treasured by the Followers of Romulus, who sealed it within a gate locked by six keys. After he had obtained these keys, the armor came into the possession of another Assassin, Ezio Auditore.



Here are the statistics for it:



Armor Piece Health Resistance
Pauldrons of Brutus 4 8 (Unbreakable)
Chest Guard of Brutus 6 8 (Unbreakable)
Vambraces of Brutus 2 8 (Unbreakable)
Greaves of Brutus 3 8 (Unbreakable)

Did you in-store copy have the Walmart pre order bonus?

This is a good deal but if you use a 10% off coupon at best buy and do the 5/$100 the game comes out to $33 and you can still do any PM's if the game drops.


You won't get the 10% off coupon. If you're doing the 5/100, I would buy and then just PM by bringing the WM receipt up there along with the game so you can say "I guess I'll go with WalMart since they're cheaper" if they deny you.

Confirmed this is live in Amarillo, TX too.

Took a picture of the price tag and the game and took to my Best Buy. They called Walmart to confirm the price and that they had in stock and price matched no problem. Best for me since i had gift cards from trade ins.

Thanks OP!:applause:

Title says it all. Was just up at Wally World doing some late night shopping, and stopped by the game section as I always do. As I was glancing at the new releases, I noticed this price on the PS3 version of AC:R. Went down to the Xbox section, and lo and behold, the same price. Found another game I wanted FOR SURE, so I decided to go ahead and grab AC and see if it rang up as such. Sure enough, it came up at $39.96. Went to another store across town, and although it wasn't out, the shelf sticker had the same price for both systems.

I have checked Walmart.com, and they show the full price, so this is either going to be extremely YMMV, or an in-store only thing. It seems to me that they have somehow put the AC: Brotherhood price on the new game, but it is ringing out properly and everything. If you are at all interested in this deal, I would go ahead down there and check; if it's a glitch, who knows when it will be cleaned up.

This is not a bad deal, considering it's only about $10 more than Black Friday, you can have it on day one, Wal-Mart has some exclusive DLC, and AC 1 is included on the PS3 disc, as well. Then again, it's really only an OK deal compared to the other game I snagged for $39.96. ;)

EDIT:

Receipt:

:D

EDIT 2:

This does appear to be live in-store; it has been confirmed in many different states at this point. If you are interested, I would try to go out post haste, because who knows if this is some kind of glitch, and how/when it will be fixed.


LMFAO! You're like a drill sergeant or something!:lol: This ^ should be stickied and made a standard of how to post this type of YMMV deal!:applause:

I already used the 10% coupon for three games and they all show up in my best buy game tracker as confirmed for the 5/100.

Many people have used the 10% AND have had the game show up in the tracker as eligible for the 5/100.

FYI this is the same armor you got in Brotherhood once you beat all of the Romulus dens. I'm sure it looks the same as well.

Glad a lot of you guys and gals were able to get in on this. Seems like it was definitely some kind of glitch/error, but it seems like it's been going strong for a good 12 hours or so!

Looks like it might be dying off as I just called a Walmart who checked/verified price at 59.96. Note a different Walmart in my area had it earlier at 39.96.

Can't believe people have to be told. Even if you're coy about the question, if enough people call it sets off red flags.

Just went to WalMart in Springfield, PA and got it for xbox for $40. They had brotherhood on its shelf space though so they grabbed one from behind the counter and it rung up as $40.

I was looking forward to the Gamestop exclusives but just can't beat that deal. I feel kinda bad...I had 5$ on GOW3 but got it from amazon for the better deal, put that 5$ towards AC:R then ended up getting this at Walmart lol. Now I have 25$ or so in credit...guess I can finally get Mario 3DS!

At this rate I will probably never set foot in Gamestop ever again. Any idea if they were price matching this?

Those appear to be the stats and info for the brotherhood armor. Can anyone confirm that its an armor set and not just a skin with no effects?
