Updated -- Free Assassins Creed III Steelbook With Pre-Order (GS, BB, Amazon)

This is available at Best Buy, Gamestop and Amazon. At Best Buy and Gamestop when you pre-order a copy of Assassin's Creed 3 for PS3 or 360 for $5 and you get a free G1 (DVD size) steelbook, there is no blu-ray/PS3 sized case out as of now.

At amazon if you pre-order the PS3 or 360 Assassin's Creed 3 you get the same steelbook (based on all info currently available), but it is shipped when Assassin's Creed 3 is released, which is late October.

As of now most, if not all, Gamestops should have this on the floor in some way to promote the game. Best Buy should as well, but some people are reporting that the street day for Best Buy is 3/10 and are being denied them until that day.

As per usual, at some Best Buy's and Gamestops the employees are unaware of the exact details and are denying customers these for incorrect reasons.

Here is an image of it based on what the link above is showing
Spoiler


I really like the way it looks I just wish there wasn't the RP thing there.

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.

Oh, and there is a thread already, but I don't have a link. OP's got pics of his along with receipt.

This was mentioned inside the best buy trade in thread lol, but this should get some more attention with a separate thread so I think your fine OP.

As for the AC3 steelbook, my best buy's gaming manager would not sell the pre-order to me today since the box the steelbooks came in are labeled with a Do not sell until March 5th warning.

I have never preorder anything from bb. I don't preorder at all unless I'm getting a ce. My question is, if you preorder, paid $5, got the steel book and tried to cancel the preorder in the future will you get charged something extra for the steelbook they have given you?

Seems like it would be a $5 for Steelbook, $55 for game type situation.

You would get a refund. The $5 is not for the steelbook, it's a down payment on the game.

Are you sure? From the other thread's OP's pic, it looks like the steelbook cost $5.

wow really? If that's the case we better get on this deal before they can change the conditions of preordering this game. Looks like a lot can capitalize on this to get a free steel book isn't it?

edit: ahh ok. I hope gs gets on this too.

In every other case when this has existed the $5 was just for a pre-order and the steelbook was the bonus.

Let me try and word it differently. I go into BB, give them $5, get the case and they give me a receipt. 3 months later I go in, but I lost my receipt and I want to cancel my pre-order. The $5 I paid is still on the game because that's what a pre-order is. You pay a small amount to reserve yourself a copy. Granted this situation may be different, but unless they charge you $5 for the case and then $60 for the game, for a total of $65 for both, which as far as I have heard is not the case, then I don't see how it can work any other way.

wait. What if the game releases and you don't pick up the game? $5 for a good looking steelbook isn't bad.

he tried to charge me for the game but it wouldnt bundle out with the steelbook the comp was being stupid i guess so he would charge me for the steelbook and the game would be 55 not 65 but he also said come back 2morow and maybe it will work because it says not to sell before march 5 so idk well see when i go back cause i just want the steelbook and ill cancel my preorder most likely
