All I see is Halo 4 CE for shipping, AC3 is sold out. Perhaps it was in stock then sold out again.

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.

My NYC ppl, the one in Union Square has two more Ass Creed 3 hardcovers. Saw at least four Halo 4 hardcovers. Maybe more, but I only glanced. There's a good amount of paperback AC3. Not sure about Halo 4 paperback.

Was going to try to see if preordering Bioshock would get me 15% off - but the preorder wasn't scanning. Said it wasn't available for sale or something.

Since the sale runs until 3/30, there is a chance AC3 will come back in stock. Add it to your cart and just check on it a few times a day to see if 'Shipping' becomes clickable.

I stopped at Best Buy to grab an AC3 guide for a friend and grabbed a second if someone needs it. It's the CE, still sealed. Includes litho.

PM me to claim. Total should be around $12 shipped.

Atwater Village store on Los Feliz in LA/Glendale has at least 5 of the Halo CE guides still sealed in the guide section as of an hour ago. Also, saw one AC3 CE guide in the register area in the game section, but it was open. I did store pickup on one of each. Most LA stores are still showing availability on these for in store pickup, as well as the slightly cheaper $4.99 regular guides.

Tried to PM at Walmart for the Halo CE Guide but was turned down by the General Manager. The conversation went like this:

Me:"I'd like to Price Match to Best Buy please"

GM: "We don't Price Match, we Ad Match"

Me: "What does that mean?"

GM: "If they have the price in a PRINTED (emphasis added) advertisement, we price match."

Me: "Ok...You don't price match at all?"

GM: "Listen, I told you already. We don't price match at all. Nothing. No price matching period. We AD MATCH (emphasis added). If a store has a printed ad and the price is listed, then we price match. If you want to Ad match, bring their ad next time."

Me: "To be honest, it's ridiculous that I have to bring in a physical ad since we have the benefit of modern technology. I'll buy my things elsewhere."

I didn't appreciate him being condescending, so I left all my items at the checkout and left.

got the last AC guide at my store - passed on the couple Halo 4 guides they had. Saw a FF Xii-2 CE guide and managed to get that for $14.99 (since it was pennied and dude just used the SKU for reg edition)


They wouldn't sell one to me (came up as not in system) and they had 8 copies >.>

got one of ~20 copies of ACIII guide, and the final copy of Pikmin 2 :D

He is right. You are wrong.
But then you had to embarrass yourself by posting it.


I didn't argue, respond sarcastically, nor did I indicate that he wasn't right. You read the posted conversation. His demeanor was the issue. I've never heard of Ad match so I asked for clarification and he responded in a disrespectful way.

Clearly, you missed the point of my post since you're trying to insult. If you're going to reply to anyone, refrain from throwing insults as those kind of responses damage the integrity of this board.

I'm not surprised that he took on a condescending tone when you asked the same question he had just answered.

To be honest, the way he explained Ad Match sounded just like a different policy of price matching. I wasn't sure why he strongly emphasized that they don't price match when he said that they do price match only with printed ads.

It's like going to Smash Burger to get a hamburger and they say they don't sell hamburgers, only Smashburgers. You'd like to know what is a Smashburger compared to a hamburger and you're told that it's a hamburger with different condiments...but that they still don't sell hamburgers.

I get that they're exclusively using the term "Ad Match" but it was still confusing at the time since I hadn't heard it before.

If I was disrespectful toward him, then it would make sense for him to respond in a condescending tone; however, since I wasn't disrespectful, there was no need to respond that way.

Perhaps the way I wrote the conversation didn't accurately convey his demeanor but it was clearly over the top. Even if I inquired into the same point twice, it's not good practice to respond that way.

Anyways, the point of the post was to give an offer of proof that price matching at Walmart is definitely YMMV and also to vent to other CAGs. I didn't expect that I would get criticism for the post.

My BB is the only one close to me and the only one that said AC3 CE guides were unavailable. They didn't have them when I went in yesterday. Now the site is saying they are available so I'll stop in again on Thursday when I head back into work to see if they are in.

From all the people in the Vita Memory stick thread, I think that's a glitch, and all stores are showing up as having inventory.

Is it only that one store that says it has it?

You could place an order online for in store pick up. You'll know for sure if they can't fulfill the order.

Thanks YBX87,

Picked up both Halo & AC3.
When I went to pick it up, they almost gave me the softcover AC3 but I told them it was supposed to be hardcover; thankfully they still had one HC available. Beautiful books.

No, all the other stores EXCEPT mine had it as available. When I went there they didn't have any at all. Now it says my BB has some.

Plus practically every other person in this thread said their BB has loads of them.

I'm not super worried about getting one. If I get one then that's great. If I don't then no worries. I'm trying to avoid using my CC too so I'm limiting myself to cash for the time being.

Got my Collector Edition guides in the mail today. SUPER impressed with the art quality. Best Buy shipped very fast too, although thy came in really huge boxes. My Halo one has a slight impression on the cover, but I don't care too much about it.
