ooh locked then unlocked!
OK my turn.The worrying thing about that advert is not the release date,which we all know is ridiculous,but the fact that the game,already unreleased,is advertised at 48% offf retail.Exactly the same thing happened with '46,I brought the game half price as soon as it was released.
ubi must be so thrilled.

delighted i imagine. but these places must pay a cost price and anything on top is profit for them, surely the distributer isn't reliant on what the game sells to us for, just what it's suppliers pay for stock?

Maybe,but when a game that has taken several years to develop,and God knows how much money,finds itself in the bargain bins the day it is released is kind of sad.

Setting aside the frivolous date of release...

It is not a bargain bin.

It's just that Play.com has an aggressive pricing to end users on some games (many games in fact), to attract customers for other products.
Ubi sells at the same price to Play.com as any other distributor with an equivalent volume of sales (I should know http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif).
Play.com lowers its margin by choice on some items.
In that case, they're even more aggressive, so as to gather pre orders.....

Even Assassin's Creed on PC is advertised at -28% for instance...

Nope...that's the straight info. I also have it on good authority (I'd tell you who, but then I'd have to kill you) that Duke Nukem Forever will be released on the same day.

And, in addition, the 1946 4.09 patch will be released 2 weeks after that...be sure!
