I dont post a lot but I have seen a few times on the forums, cause Im a lurker, about Gamestop shipping after the release dates.

Many of you should know about Gamestops two different delivery methods. I think ones called standard and the other is called express. Standard delivers 1-5 days after the release and express delivers 1-3 days after release according to the website. I can tell you that this is NOT the case and that the cheapest option is to choose the standard! I emailed Gamestop about why they didn't ship for the release day and why the website said they would ship ON release day which bugged me a bit. The woman (who I think likes me :P) basically stated that both forms of delivery will try their best (higher chances for express) for the item to be delivered ON the release day or before. Here is a screenshot of the email http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But what about us lazy people? We don't want to walk/drive all the way to the store. D:

Most likely you wont be able to buy the Animus Edition in store and most pre orders normally ship FOR release. Gamestops site said otherwise which is why i'm clearing confusion about people worried about waiting an extra 3-5 days

Unless he lives in Northern Ireland, he won't be able to, since all their UK stores are in Northern Ireland (I checked their gamestop.co.uk store locator)

I've been asking this around the forums for a pretty long time, but do you get Altair's skin if you pre-order with best buy?

Bestbuy website says you get the crusader multiplayer character so no

That's Amazon's bonus.

So there's no way else in getting it? And is it the amazon.com where people rip you off a lot?

lol I've only heard. But so the only way to get it is by getting it from Amazon?

What I'm really wondering is why Ubisoft would make Altair's skin a pre-order bonus and not an unlockable. I mean we're already playing as him, why not just let us get it once we beat some sort of mission.

What would be really cool though is a S16 skin. That would be awesome.

I thought Ubisoft would make the Altair skin a Uplay bonus.

Even if it's a Uplay, I can't get it, for my dad doesn't allow me to get internet connection for my xbox. So my only chance of getting the Altair skin is if it's unlockable in the game.

I have a feeling Altair's skin will be unlocked after completing either:

1. The whole campaign
2. Finishing all Altair Memories

or it will be:

3. On Uplay

It won't be 1 or 2 and it may not even be 3, Ubisoft may not even want to release it through Uplay.

I hate Ubisoft. They make it so obvious that they want Altair's skin not to be an unlockable just so they can make money. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

...it's not like "selling" the Altaļr skin would be "big business". It's really not that big of a deal. It's just a skin. It's most certainly not something uncommon in the industry.

Inevitably I sent a similar email to gamestop and got exactly the same reply as you, apart from the sender's name.

It's a well know joke but yes, it was said in Forgetting Sarah Marshall with Lucy Stillman, I mean Kristen Bell. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I didn't chose express delivery at Gamestop because Game has ALWAYS got the game out to me on release day or before. I thought this would be the standard for every other game retailer. I guess I was wrong. It actually has led me to order a order-and-collect (only put down a £5 deposit) from Game aswell :\ If my animus edition doesn't come on release day, I'm going to have to buy another one from Game. (I HAVE to order from gamestop as it was the only place left with animus edition still in stock)

Oh yeah! I knew I'd heard it in a movie and it's weird because I had been thinking of that particular quote before I saw your post. Thanks man.
