Just used the code and was able to get a PS3 version for $39.99. On the item page it also mentioned free one day shipping, so I selected the $3.99 one-day shipping at checkout and they credited a shipping discount.

So, Far Cry 3 :ps3: for $39.99 and one-day shipping. Actually, free, since I had credit from sending in some textbooks. Thank you, Amazon.

I just got the physical copy for PC for $15 with my prime account and the FC3AMZNS code. Thanks very much, guys who posted about this deal and the code.

That had to be with credit from something else, I'm seeing $29 before tax at the very least if you got this deal tonight.

I had a $5 credit that I forgot about but everyone else with a student account and the code should be able to get it for $20.

It's currently $39.99 before $10 off. So it'd be $29.99, as stated above.

so I decided to see what I could do with it and I got to the end but there's no way I can finish him off.

I keep hoping Amazon will match Target's 39.99 before code but I don't think they'll be doing that.:cry:

The 360 version dropped to $39.99 on Christmas day, but was back up by the 26th. I got in at this price and the $10 off worked too.

I'm not sure why you two aren't understanding what I'm writing. You get $20 off with the student prime account AND the code that was posted. $10 for the prime account plus $10 for the code (FC3AMZNS).

I just used it last night and got an additional $10 after entering it.


I got the PS3 version for $30, so you getting it for $20? how? are you sure that's not some credit leftover in your account?

Actually, I just looks it up and I missed something in the initial post. I guess I had some other discounts that I had no idea about. Sorry about that.

Nope, just Uplay.

But the Steam version also requires Uplay so there's no real benefit to the Steam version aside from the "I want all my stuff on Steam" thing.



And the convenience of not having to rely on UPlay to send you your files if you decide to play it again in the future. The convenience of not having to keep a disc around. The convenience of not having to keep it installed on your PC forever.

Publishers need to realize they either need to match the convenience of Steam or they need to just work with Steam. Amazon, GMG, and others have proven that Steamworks can work well with any digital store. Publishers need to either get VERY serious or they need to stop altogether.

Because Uplay is a very annoying middle ground that is not at all appealing or useful. Somehow, Ubisoft has managed to take everything that is bad about Origin and nothing that is actually good about it, then turn that into a service.

I'm really hoping....I've been holding out since I missed the Christmas deal. But I'm not optimistic at this point...

Is this true? I have been asking around about the same thing but I was told that if I register the CD key that the DVD copy comes with on Uplay, I can then download the game and install it anytime I want via Uplay, like Steam does...

I'm sort of new to the PC gaming world, and wanted to get this to put my rig through the paces. If I buy a CD, can I just use the code to download the game from UPlay, or will I need to keep the disc in the whole time?

If that's the case then I'll probably just spend the extra $10 and do the digital download version.

The disc version should let you download the game from Uplay in the future. Games are tied to accounts.

Just to be clear, do you mean that it should let me download it whenever I want, for future reference...or that it will be a feature that is available sometime in the future? :P

EDIT: Oops. Thought about buying it last night, wanted to wait until this morning. Now it's back up to full price.

Got the game for $39.99, (it was $49.99, and I used the code for $10 off), for the 360. One of my friends who has the game said it was really good, so I bit on impulse. Used a portion of my $100 gift card, and still have enough left over for Aliens: Colonial Marines in February.
