I went to my local Best Buy but the guy said he had them in the back and when he came back he said he wasn't supposed to put them out until March 10th. Guess i'll hit up the other best buys around my house to see if i can get one there.

lol I was told the box says March 5th, someone earlier said there BB's box says March 6th, and now yours is March 10th. I wonder if the employees are even looking at the right boxes. I'm pretty sure its suppose to be March 5th to coincide with the massive reveal tomorrow at 5PM by ubisoft.

Just got off the phone with the BB in City of Industry, CA. Sales rep said she didn't know anything about a steelbook, so I guess I'll wait until the 10th to check it out so that I don't end up driving there for nothing.

To the guys credit he literally brought out the steelbook and showed me that it said in the back "Sell between March 10th - ?" forgot till when but the actual thing did say March 10th. The guy also told me he only had around 25 steelbooks total so i would keep my eyes open for those of you who really want this and dont wanna risk not getting one. Im gonna keep checkin until i get my copy lol

Question Assassins Creed fans.

I am really wanting to play ACIII because of its theme that it will be taking on.

I will admit playing only the first level or so of the first Assassins Creed and I didn't come back after that. Of course, that was about 4 or 5 years ago and I want to give the franchise a fair chance. Is it required to play Brotherhood and Revelations or will it be just fine for me to play AC and ACII?

Well, first of all, AC3 uses an entirely different engine than the previous games. So if you didn't like the gameplay in the previous games, the one in AC3 will be vastly different.

Second, if you only care about the story, then read a wiki or watch some Youtube videos to catch up. It's not like Mass Effect; your choices in the previous games don't matter as you can't import any game saves.

Hope that helps.

usually I see people saying you can skip the 1st game. You should prob play 2, but you can probably skip brotherhood (though it very nicely expands on 2) and I haven't touched revelations yet. but everything in AC is recapped in the other games.

It's pretty much required to know Desmond's part of the story, but the none of the three core games related in terms of the main character.

In all honesty, I would just flat-out skip the first game and go right into II, Brotherhood, and then Revelations.

If you buy Revelations for PS3, I think all copies still come with AC1 for free.

Damn, I was at my BB today and I forgot to check if they had them out yet. I'll go back tomorrow since I have a feeling these wont last very long. I'm just going to pre-order for the steelbook, and then wait for a sale on the game. Five bucks seems like a fair price to pay IMO.

I will be at school all week and won't be back until Friday - I'm hoping they won't run out by then.. that would certainly be a sad day for me.

Never. Ubisoft has never released one in the US, at least not for the AC series. They only care about the foreign markets.

Thanks for the info. I might just take the hour long bus ride to my nearest BB since I won't be home from school for two weeks.
