View Full Version : Why can't I buy AC:B Limited Codex Edition PC?

04-01-2011, 09:32 AM
I've been waiting for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Limited Codex Edition for PC since October last year, and was really looking forward to the release. But I still haven't gotten it. Why? Well, because the norwegian store I preordered it from apparently won't get any copies for some reason (neither will any other norwegian store), and I can't order it from Ubisoft either. Why can't I order it from Ubisoft? It's driving me crazy! I'm a huge fan of the game, but this really me off. And do NOT tell me that it is because it's too late to buy it now, because you can still buy the codex editions for consoles.

Hello and welcome to the Forums http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
It is a Limited Edition whether you want to hear it or not. When you try to purchase it from Ubisoft what happens? Have you checked under Shipping Information if they ship to your country?

Haha, thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, the "Add to cart" button isn't there for the PC version, but it's there for the console versions.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It must be...unavailable now. *runs and hides in the closet*
If you feel you have reached this because of an error I would suggest contacting them directly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But anyway, thanks for replying http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I don't know if Ubisoft has anything against it, but i managed to buy it a few hours ago from the ubishop through a UK proxy. i mean, heck it's the same effect as if i had asked a friend in the UK to order it for me, and it apparently comes from France anyway.

Can't find the codex editions when I'm using a proxy server :/

with www.ubishop.com/codex (http://www.ubishop.com/codex). it depends from which country you are trying to access it from. Germany gives you the codex edition but with no possibility to buy it. Portugal sends you to the AC:B downloadable edition. UK gives you a buyable codex edition.

the same thing happened to me with a UK shop even

as for console editions still being buyable, well you are seeing rests of a possibly less limited edition. here in germany i think i've only seen a codex edition once and that was quite some time ago. the rest is from scalpers who preordered in higher number and are now trying to make a huge profit with it.

I'm glad to know you know Portugal doesn't have access to it. It is kind of lame that the UK still has an option to get it and the rest of Europe doesn't.

I'm going to try and get someone from the UK to get it for me because I really want it and I think Ubi isn't realizing it's losing a lot of money by doing this.

I'm trying to access it from Norway, and it says that the game is available, but there's no buy-option..

I got a friend who's in Ireland at the moment, so I'll check with him http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

there is no shiping just download but it is a good download fast and rilly good on updates

thanks FreeBird, but getting AC:B isn't the problem at the moment. that ones readily available everywhere.
the problem is that both Phat_fail and me preordered the codex edition months ago, were really keen on getting it and then the shops we ordered from just didn't deliver. and i don't know about Phat_fail, but in my case, i guess if i hadn't insisted on getting information along the past two weeks, they would never have told me that they wouldn't be getting that edition after all. (Seriously, don't buy at thehut.com. bad experience after bad experience)

04-02-2011, 04:07 AM
Yeah, that's my case also. I tried ordering from another shop as well, and they were the ones who told me that the norwegian distributor didn't have any copies whatsoever.
