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.

Agreed.

Might as well optionally add it over Steam as a Non-Steam game...
...just so your Steam Friends can see what the hell you're playing.

But if you launch the Steam version, does it automatically sign you into Uplay and start the game from there? Does the Uplay version do the same thing if I added it as a non-Steam shortcut?

I ask because I want to play this on Steam's Big Picture Mode, meaning I'd launch it with a controller. If I have to launch it through a Uplay browser, then the whole thing is ruined.

Is the Xbox version of this supposed to be $49.99? Making it $39.99 after the promo?

I don't have it on Steam so I can't answer that for you. Sorry.

I'm going to guess that it does based on my experience with AC: Brotherhood. That game is 2 years old but on PC, even the Steam-bought version launches a separate uPlay client and I have to use a mouse click "play" to actually play the game, which breaks Big Picture. It's kind of shitty and they should fix that (Ubi, I mean).

No just PS3 and PC/DVD at this point. Who knows if the Xbox version will but the Prime code does apply to Xbox 360 and download version.

Well good luck with that! I was going to get this at TRU today with COD BOP2 but they did not have FC3. While not quite as good per game cost I was not really interested in COD yet.

You might want to wait and see, it isn't $49.99 yet for Xbox, but since Amazon is matching the Target ad price for PS3 it makes sense that they should drop the 360 price to the same as well.

Ack, price went up in my cart. I flim-flammed for a couple hours and then decided to take the plunge. Serves me right I guess.

Hopefully steam's got it on sale for around the same this sale.

Damn. Here's hoping the 360 version gets the same pricing.

Great game; don't let bad memories of FC2 put you off (even though I liked that game) because this game is what Assassin's Creed II was to Assassin's Creed.

You sign up for prime and verify with an email that is .edu. It does not need to be your primary account for amazon. You just need to prove you have an edu email address.

At least that is how it was when I joined.

Thanks for the heads up. I just grabbed it for $40 for the PC physical copy. I should find out if Steam sells it cheaper before it ships and just cancel if it is.

Steam is still $50 for regular version.
