Assassin's Creed Revelations (360/PS3) $39.96 at Walmart

Finally have to admit that Wal-Mart opening a store 5 minutes from where I work can be beneficial.

Both the 360 and the PS3 versions were shelf-tagged at 39.96, but when she rang up the PS3 version, it was 59.96. I pointed out the tag and she agreed to price match it; the problem was they didn't have any of the "Only at Walmart" versions in the case, and the SKU was off by 1. Still got the game Day 1 for $20 off, though; I would've waited for a price drop but I really wanted the original game included. That's an amazing "preorder bonus" right there.

I might take it back later and try and exchange for the preorder bonus, or I might try and price match at Best Buy.

This is true! I try to abide by the following rule:

Never buy a game for more than $20 unless you plan to play it IMMEDIATELY.

I can wait for a $20 deal in 2 months or a gamefly $12 deal in 5 months.

This. Plus Ubisoft games drop faster than Wall Street on a bad day. Besides, I still have to finish AC2 (2 hours in) and start Brotherhood

No kidding. Was really debating on picking this up considering my current backlog and BF, then I remembered I had a giftcard, so it was a no brainer. Bought at at the Baldwin Park, CA location, tagged for the low price and no issues.

I just went and it rang up regular price. It had the sticker in front, but not the Walmart exclusive sticker. The guy was just putting them in the display cases. I couldn't see if there were other versions at this store. Hialeah, FL. Just my luck.

To the people saying not to pick it up you are forgetting Wal-Mart will price adjust any items until mid Jan.

No luck in the Coaltownship PA Walmart. They don't have it on the shelf and the worker looked through most of the boxes and couldn't find it! I guess I'll try out the one in Bloomsburgh.

Denver, CO / 9:13 am MT / Nov 15, 2011 Confirmed - Just picked up AC Revelations for $39.96. Walmart hadn't even put them on the shelf yet, but the clerk was kind enough to open up the shipping boxes and voila! She said she assumed it was probably $59.96, but when she scanned it right out of the shipping box, it was $39.96 with no hook blades or hassle involved. Giddy up before Wally realizes it just sold all its Revelations inventory at its Brotherhood price!

Thanks OP. I managed to snag one for $39.96 for XBOX 360. Both PS3 and XBOX 360 were tagged for $39.96 and rang up no problem and this was for the "Walmart Only" version. Also this was still working as of 11:25am EST.

Are you really that desperate for youtube hits that you feel the need to spam every, single post you make with them?

Here is the Walmart bonus



The Armor of Brutus was a virtually unbreakable set of armor, once in the possession of the Assassin Marcus Junius Brutus. It was the strongest armor of the Rennaissance era and was found alongside the Dagger of Brutus.
The armor was stolen and treasured by the Followers of Romulus, who sealed it within a gate locked by six keys. After he had obtained these keys, the armor came into the possession of another Assassin, Ezio Auditore.



Here are the statistics for it:



Armor Piece Health Resistance
Pauldrons of Brutus 4 8 (Unbreakable)
Chest Guard of Brutus 6 8 (Unbreakable)
Vambraces of Brutus 2 8 (Unbreakable)
Greaves of Brutus 3 8 (Unbreakable)

I was successful in getting Best Buy to price match.

I had already bought the 360 version from Walmart for 39.96. I went to the customer service desk at BBY to pick up my pre-order for the 360 version that I had placed there. I showed my Walmart purchase receipt (no game title on receipt, just the UPC number) and a picture print-out of the 39.96 price sticker. The rep there called the Walmart to confirm the 39.96 price and in-stock availability, and then granted the price match. I then returned the copy that I had bought from Walmart back to Walmart.

For those of you wanting to try a price match at Best Buy, and you don't have a purchase receipt or price sticker picture like I did, you may still have a decent shot. Tell the rep at the BBY customer service desk that Walmart doesn't have a weekly ad this week, but you saw AC:R at Walmart for $39.96 and they can call the store to verify. This should have a good shot at working, I'd think. And if you get unlucky with a uninformed Walmart rep on the phone that quotes a $59.96 price, I suppose you can ask the BBY rep to either tell the Walmart rep to scan the price or try calling a different Walmart store.

And as always, be calm and polite about it and don't pitch a fit. If you get denied, just say "thanks, it's okay", walk away, and try at a different store. Best of luck.

This is a good deal but if you use a 10% off coupon at best buy and do the 5/$100 the game comes out to $33 and you can still do any PM's if the game drops.

Confirmed for Reading PA

My local Walmart claimed not to have any, so I had to travel to the Reading Supercenter. Was not on shelf, but behind register. When I asked for a price check, employee stated it was 59.99, but after scanning it, it rang up (much to her surprise) for the $40.

Thanks for the heads up!

Managed to get my copy at walmart for $39.96 despite being advertised for $20 more. I bought Brotherhod for the same price last year but it took about a month for it to drop in price. Would be nice if more AAA titles had this kind of release day price(even if it's due to pricing errors).

Thanks OP.
