It's kinda funny cause I'm calling everywhere and all of the employees are clueless about the Steelbook, I wish they hired real gamers for this kind of stuff.


LOL so true, more often than not that's the case.
To many times have i asked about something and the employees don't have a clue that it started or was available.

Can't complete blame them though, sometimes corporate emails are really slow.

I don't even keep up with Assassin's Creed stuff and I know about it.

lol the problem is that the majority of real gamers would rather be gaming than working at best buy.

Amazon is offering the Steel Book now.
If I were you i'd preorder a copy from them now, just in case you aren't able to find one.

That's one i'm doing.

I went to the Best Buy I used to work at and bought the one and only case they received. What's the deal with that?

Went to my BB and they had none out, asked the guy working in games, he had no clue but he went in the back to look. He came back with a whole display and set it up, just wanted to point out that the offer is only good through 3/17 and the store didnt have a ton only enough to fill the display

Interesting... does Best Buy and other b&m retailers do promos like this often where they give you a special case up front?

Would be nice if Amazon gets some nice exclusives for AC3, but I'm not holding my breath. Unless there's some really crazy awesome b&m exclusives, I'll stick to buying online like I usually do.

usually only BB does this in advance. Blu-rays usually. worth the $5 for the steelbook imo.

I went to BB, they hadn't received them yet - the guy said he'd give me a call when they get them in, but in reality, I am going to call him each day until they get in.

I'll probably order another copy as a gift or trade bait, just to get another case.

I can wait, and actually don't care much about the steelbook. I am interested to find out if and what they will include with an LE.

I just added the pre-order to my cart on BB.com and then removed the game from the cart and was able to just purchase the SteelBook for 5.00 flat w/free shipping. I really hope it goes through, if so it might be a good way to get one without having to pre-order the game.

Not for games, they steer away from up front items.

Btw my local store had a display setup for these SBs, so local store's gaming department should at least be aware of the promo. The back of the SB has a pamphlet stating the conditions and it specifically states " the $5 is for the game itself." it even states MSRP is $59.99 - $5 preorder = $54.99 at time of purchase. Of course with legal talk saying MSRP may change.

The receipt doesn't list the SB, so dont be a douche and return the preorder and keep the case. Just consider it being $5 for a SB that would otherwise retail for $20+.

BTW this steelbook is AWESOME!!! Good quality and one of the better SB art I have seen

They officially should be giving out the preorder bonus as of today, because they updated their preorder kiosk systems last night. If you go to the preorder kiosk it will have the preorder bonus listed in there stating you will get the SB today.

Also most stores were sent out promotional signage/displays for the SBs, as such they were SUPPOSED to be set up for today. They are pushing this for the ME3 buyers, which I have to say I like. Great business concept. "Hey preorder here today and you WALK OUT with this awesome Steelbook. No waiting like Amazon. No hoping like GS. Just instant satisfaction,"

Posted 05 March 2012 - 06:55 PM

so I went in to my local BB today trying to get the steel book. guy I talked to said yes when I asked him if I would be getting the steelbook right now if I did the preorder. after I paid and didn't get it, I went back and asked him what's going on and he tells me I get it when I come back to pick up the game..very annoyed I just said okay and left. so now my question is, can I take my receipt to another BB that has it and get the steelbook or will I have to do another preorder cause I really want to have this now. if any fellow cag can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

btw thanks op

Thanks. Just ordered one and waiting to see if they will send confirmation without having to buy the game. Saves me a trip and I'm willing to bet I can find a better deal on the price of the game.
