Gamestop has Assassin's Creed II (used/pre-owned) for just $18.39 after using code 20PRE. It's available for both PS3 and Xbox 360 and you get a $10 credit towards a future purchase when you buy it!

PS3
360


Update: Some are questioning whether you get the $10 credit with a used purchase. Well at least for the PS3 version it is specifically advertised on the $10 credit promotion page: http://www.gamestop....&loc=homeflash2

So I guess it's YMMV on the 360 version

Other than having to use online, are there any other catches with their $10 code?

You still get the $10 credit even if you buy it used?

You sure that $10 code isn't only for when you buy the game new, like all the other 10 & 20 codes they're doing?

Edit - More interesting: The actual page showing the $10 credit titles shows the USED version of PS3, as the New version is OOS online. Seems like an accurate reading, then.

It's inconclusive I'd say -

http://www.gamestop....roduct_id=74511

The page lists both New and Used, and just says below them that there's a $10 credit toward future purchase. Doesn't say anything about New copies only...

Look at the promo page for the $10 credit:

http://www.gamestop....&loc=homeflash2

You'll see they show the PS3 version with the $22.99 price

I just used a $10 off code i recieved in a promo email, didnt work online, however they will take it for used games if you call them. (they tell you to place the order, then contact then with the order # to take off $10) Just picked up stranglehold collectors edition used for $2.79 ish shipped. Kind of a hassle, but hey $3 for a game, cant beat that. Or even pick up an older 9.99 game for like a $1 shipped.

Went for it, since I want this game anyway and that's a good price even w/o the credit. I liked this info on the final post-purchase page:

"The packing slip included in each shipment also serves as your receipt and makes a great paper airplane."

I got new one from Walmart coming for $28 and will return it. Even without the $10 code, this is still a great deal at $18.39.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Nintendolife.com has an article about ubisoft (specifically about Red Steel 2), that notes that 42% of ubisoft's game sales last year were on the Wii, as opposed to 17% on DS, 12% on PS3 and 8% on Xbox 360. This includes the release of Assassin's Creed 2. I guess that explains the price drop.

EDIT: to clarify, the article was mainly about RS2 meeting their (lowered) expectations (which is a 2010 release), but has an aside that ubisoft also noted the above about last year.

I noticed that Ubisoft has been publishing some shit games for the Wii but I guess they are selling decently.

Aren't all the gameshow wii/ds games theirs? (Family Feud, Price is Right, Press your Luck.)

Just Dance, Raving Rabbids, My Fitness Coach, Petz, and a bunch of other titles are from Ubi so that's not that big of a surprise. I imagine they publish way more games for the Wii (and DS) than they do for the 360 and PS3.

Actually if you look now the 22.99 price shows for the 360, but not the PS3, lol.

edit: It's likely because used copies sold out for the PS3
