For the people going to the midnight release, can you please post info about the DLC? Will it print on receipt, inside the package, LE included in box, and etc.. Will really help us fellow CAGs that doesn't have a BBY near us doing midnight release on what to expect when we pick up our game tomorrow. We all know how troublesome it is for BBY and their preorder DLCs. Thanks.


All signs point to a code on the receipt since online orders show an email delivery method.

Quick question regarding price matching a deal with the $20 promo. Is it better to pick up the game and complete the transaction and then walk over to customer service to initiate the price match? I am just concerned that by doing the price match while picking up my preorder will somehow negate the $20RZ promo. Thanks for any input.

No, I just want to beat it before playing AC3 and I really want to start playing it right when I get home from picking it up. I know I should take my time with it since there's a bunch of things to do but I figured I could just come back to it in the future and replay it or something.


unless i am mistaken, i thought Ac3 has a whole diff storyline, and main char than Ac:REv?

Actually if he preordered it in store (not in store pickup) and it was just the standard edition he possibly could depending on the cashiers though as with everything.

Sort of, all of the Ass creeds are connected in a way. Like in rev., it tells you the story of the first ass creed. So idk. Nobody tell any spoilers please lol

Can I price match and use my GCU B2G1 coupon, or should I use the coupon then price match AC3 after?

I just played 2, Bro, and Rev back-to-back-to-back and I STILL don't know what's going on in the story anymore.

All I know is that I like it, and I want more of it.

Still looking for an answer to this, but does anyone know if you can use RewardZone certificates to buy a Best Buy gift card? Basically converting it into a gift card.

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.

About Best Buy extending this promo for upcoming 2013 titles, I would recommend CAGs to pre-order close to 30 days before release date or at least until pre-order bonuses are revealed. Best Buy seems to have problems including promos for customers that pre-ordered before they are announced unlike amazon.

UPlay rewards for AC3 have also been revealed by Ubisoft.

I preordered Bioshock Infinite several months ago (back when BBY offered bonus trade-in credit for preordering it) and I still received the somewhat-recently-announced preorder bonus code for the online Industrial Revolution game; would you say I should still cancel my preorder and re-place it closer to the release date? At this point, it seems like it'd be a bigger pain to cancel now than to just wait and hope for the best. :\

Unless your pre-order is for a special edition or collectors edition(which has a chance of selling out early), I think its better to play it safe by ordering 30 days before release date for standard editions. Lots can change from now till release date like additional pre-order bonuses/promos.

Picked up a AC3 X360 preorder tonight. Seemed like it wanted me to pay for the whole game right then and there. At least please you can pay up front if you want. It also printed out my code on the receipt, so I don't have to fuss with that like usual.

Happened to me to. I guess if you preorder in the 48 hour window right before the game comes out, you have to pay in full. At least that's what I was told.

You don't. They just remove the game's sku, and it will ring up fine.

Yeah the guy who rang up the 360 preorder in-store tonight said I couldn't do it because it rang up full price. Just going to do it online for an in-store pickup tonight and hope the $20 comes through. I wasn't even planning on getting it but I just wrapped up Revelations and the ending made me want to start playing AC3 asap.

Same here, I literally just finished revelations a few minutes ago. The ending was sort of like "wtf just happened?" And made me eager to get my hands on AC3
