As we all know AC3 is approaching the launch date quickly and i am trying to make up my mind on what to do..

Should I order from Eb games Australia, and have an opportunity of getting it a few days early? Is eb games known for shipping them to you early?? or have you ever gotten previous AC games early?

Or should I just get it from the midnight launch from 10- 12pm a day early?

Also if anyone has any questions regarding their game shops and how early they ship AC3 feel free to post them here.

You should know by now that "Patience" and "AC3" dont mix well...

Sometimes family owned businesses break street dates and sell early out of simple ignorance or greed. I was going to burglarize a warehouse but I've since come to learn that that kind of thing is illegal

I don't think there is any sure-fire way of getting it early...

I'm getting it on the midnight launch, how can I not? I have heard of people getting it a couple days early because they ordered it online or something, but I'll just wait for the midnight release.

No sure-fire way to get it early. Just depends on who you order it from and where you are at like that. If you know a particular place that usually delivers early then best to stick to them :p.

Cool.. thanks for the answers guys..

Still not sure which option i should go with, It would be a dream come true if the game came a week early, but thats not guaranteed...

There's a good chance you can get it early from ordering online, since they make up for postal time and send it before date. Then again, you might just get it later than release because the postman went postal. I have previously had success with ordering from multiple shops, and since they have full refund, I'll just keep the one who came firsthand return the other(s). If none of them arrive by 29th, you get the midnight one.

Then again, it's the trouble of balancing this against what pre-order bonuses you want, so either way we,re all doomed.

That's VERY unlikely..

Most online stores ship it a couple of days or - 3 at most - before release, to guarantee you have it in hand for the release day - sometimes you have it a couple of days before - but a week is really pushing it..

Unless it's international - and with both your at the mercy of shipping - and it could turn up after release - if it's delayed..

And if it is delayed we tell you how awesome it is until you cry.

Last year I got it 4 days before release:p. This year I'll probably have it a day before release. It really depends on where you pre-order it. Over here it's usual to get the game before European release date. :D

At that store you can even win a life-size statue of Connor. It's almost 2 meters. I don't know if any other stores offer the chance to win something like that lol. :p

They normally ship early - due to being international ;)

They aim to have the game at your door for release - however depends on the postal service.

last year some people got it on the day, rather than before - so it's pot luck tbh


Having the game earlier - is a bonus, but it's not for certain ;)


Only people are sure to get it a week or so before - are going to be the reviewers [or staff] :(

Also, didn't a French retailer break street date last year, forcing most others to jump the gun a bit? I know my Animus edition was with me almost a full week in advance.

Good point man. It's weird that nobody in this thread is commenting on your genius. Guess you'll get your reward all by yourself come pre-release.

we don't talk about that..

:P

TBH - some stores may break release date - which is very naughty ;) , but it will be bricks and mortar stores - so you have to go and buy it..


ordering online - it should be as per normal..

I am just going to buy it in a store on the release day because i don't want to have to wait for the postman. I might still get it a day before official release since my local store often gives games out earlier :)

Review copies have been shipped oddly early this time around, according to a few people out there, but I don't think we should expect the retail copies to come early.

As said many times before, Ubisoft are working very closely to alot of retailers this time around and I'd be very surprised if anyone broke the street release.

Basically; if retailers break street release dates, Ubisoft don't get the figures through.

So for example, if 50,000 copies were sold prior to the release date, and then 3,000,000 were sold on release day, Ubisoft would only ever publish / get the figures for the 3,000,000.

It's all political really but that's how it works and that's why publishers get upset about it, they work hard on financial predictions for their investors, and if those figures are wrong, then they go nuts.
