Reallllly want to get ACIV, but I just have too many other things to play right now.  Guess I'll pass.

Anyone know if CEs and regular editions are counted together toward the 3 limit? I've previously had and sold the regular edition from the Black Friday sale, and picked up the CE when BB had it for cheap a month back or so. Does that mean I'm at 2 out of 3?

Amazon needs to match this. Shipping makes the Assassin's Creed deal less appealing. I get stuck with tax either way, but I want my free ship.

yes collector and standard editions count so you are at 2. http://forums.bestbu...p/806692#M14605

Thanks OP, always on the lookout for a good price on a backup Dualshock 3 that isn't black.

I bought AC:IV.  Thanks!  I've hope to enjoy this as much as I've liked Sid Meier's Pirates

Its in the fine print.  I too was unaware of this if it wasnt for my CAG family talking about it earlier in the year.

I understand where they are coming from, though. In their eyes, if you buy 4 of the same game, you're probably a reseller, at least under their terms. MOST normal consumers would never have to worry about a 3 game limit. Of course, as CAGs, we are FAR from normal.

This is a tough call. I got such a huge backlog of games I will play before this one, I will probably get a PS4 in  a year and the PS4 version will probably be a good $10 game for me to get at that time. I'm still playing Dark Souls, Deus Ex, & TLOU. Haven't played AC3 yet which I will even though it seems people think its skippable. This is SO tempting but I will probably have it shrinkwrapped in a year and seeing a cheap ass PS4 version. Great post OP!

Its a very silly or low limit.  Or even flawed for that matter. for the simple fact is returning a copy should deduct from your count.  Im pretty sure I hit my limit on this at xmas.  Even passed on the $1 wii u copy cause of the silly limit.  There should be some leniency in the system to avoid problems.  a year down the road i shouldnt have to trudge through my entire purchase history to avoid a possible accidental 4th copy buy.  It is what it is.  I have since traded mine in from xmas but thought about picking it back up.  I cant order it online cause my info automatically attaches my info to it.  Its an inconvenience to the customer.

Couldn't you create a second bestbuy.com account and not have a "My Best Buy" account attached to it and buy it at the non GCU price. Then manually add the bestbuy.com order to your GCU My Best Buy account.

Amazon matched the price for ACIV on all three systems.

WTF Amazon I had a copy for PS3 in my cart getting ready to checkout and I get a message saying it no longer available from the seller I choose. I have a Prime trial so I wasn't adding anything else to cart either.

Bit of an odd question here...

I got the PS3 LE from BB when it was on sale a couple months back and I had the free GCU. I got paid GCU in March during the $60 sale and ordered 2 more copies of Black Flag last weekend. Am I at the 3 out of 3 max or can I get a copy from today's deal without going over the limit?

I've been waiting for this to drop since it came out. Never seems to get below $20 for long so I finally gave in. $15 in store pick up, can't complain;).

Amazon.com has the PS3 version back to $13.99. I ordered mine with Prime and it has an estimate delivery of Sunday.

Fucking bullshit. Amazon is already out of the 360 version and won't take anymore orders for it. As if they won't have more in a few days. Assholes.

Curious...last week I bought 2 Assassins creeds during the sale. 1 for ps3 1 for 360 using 2/3 of my GCU. Traded in the 360 copy as a credit mover at GS and today went to do the same and my GCU still applied to both... Hoping I don't get in trouble because last time I went over the 3 limit all it did was take it off one and the 4th was regular price. Anybody had this happen recently with any other games?

Bryan Danielson is more boring than AC3.

I'd grab this if the upgrade was still valid.

Did you play ac4? Because while 3 was the low point of the series 4 was probably the best, or at least the best beside ac2. And that's universal opinion. Nothing to do with people "learning their lesson"
