yeah and i wouldnt doubt that its due to stores busting the street dates, i know some Toys-R-Us stores tend to do that just cuz they don't really pay that much attention to when they are to put things out and just put any new game they receive on the shelf, so say they were sent 20 copies of AC and got them today, they could have put them on the shelf.

Not saying that its only Toy-R-Us stores but they are one of the more common ones, I know some Circuit City's and Best Buys mess up from time to time as well.

Or perhaps beta testers/reviewers.

If there's no solid street date, stores can put games out early. It really just depends on the game. That's why I'm hoping to get my copy early since I work at Best Buy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Also it's not necessarilly that stores aren't paying attention to the dates, some of them need the room in the warehouse etc. so they get em on the floor to make more space.

The day I heard they broke the date for Bioshock I rushed to the local Toys R Us here, but they said they couldnt sell it till the release date.

Very true bout them needing space, but sometimes they do get a notice with the game saying "do not sell till X date" at least all the Wal-Mart's I've been to are like that, as well as its usually listed in their computer database of the street date.

True but there's a difference between when the release date is and when it can actually be sold.

It's kinda dumb but lets take Halo for example. That game was set for the 25th and it was a solid street date. Therefore we couldn't sell it before that date. But if we get AC lets say on the 12th and it doesnt say we have to sell it on the 13th and no sooner then we can put it out on the floor.

Although I wont deny that some stores probably do make the mistake of putting it out when they shouldnt and in that case they could probably get sued straight to H***.

Hope that makes sense. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Yeah, but as with most hits, Halo like you said having the solid date. I wouldn't doubt to see AC / CoD4 / Mass Effect to name a few with solid dates, even though CoD4 is out tomarrow LOL.

That's what I thought too but in my area COD4 and AC havent gotten that much attention. I know COD4 did not have a solid street date around here.

Though it could in other parts of the country/world.
As for AC I don't know yet if it will have a solid date or not. I can try and look it up next time I work.

The guy on the top AtomicShroom has almost every achievement. He also has every secret achievement already unlocked. Too bad you can't see what they are.

did you notice that most of them also have Naruto on their recently played game, which is another Ubi game.
And some of them also have Beowulf which, if I'm not mistaken, has not been released yet... and is anotehr Ubi game...

to confirm: all people playing work for ubisoft according to atomic shroom and can not comment on the game since it isnt out yet. dont bother asking.

Yeah I think it has to be Ubi or reviewers too. I am a retailer and I have been told to hold the game untill the release date.

I just hope that if these 21 people are reviewers that Gameinformer and others will have a review for the next mag.
