PSA - get it while their website control data is still fucked up:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Assassin-s-Creed-3-Xbox-360-Xbox-360/20452320?dest=9999999997&sourceid=04330446412468549849&veh=aff&wmlspartner=lw9MynSeamY

$18 and change at checkout. Let me know if i'm missing something.

Great find! Hopefully they'll still honor these preorders if the price really is in error.

Lazy link here.

Yeah, I made an order just in case they do honour that price. If not I'll probably just cancel and wait for the PC version, but I figure it's worth a shot.

Good catch my man, good catch

oh my gosh, WITH a five dollar bonus in movie credits? They're LOSING money.

Good catch. Says sold out online now tho. Screw them. I bought revelations and will not be buying this years version. Rent ONLY. If I can stop myself.

It won't let you add it to the cart even though it still displays the price. I think it's gone. :\

Well crap, out of stock in the time I added it to my cart and went to check out.

And now it's back to $60. I think a lot of people are going to be getting their orders cancelled.

Don't they have to honor those price, though? Unless since it's a pre-order and prices are subject to possible change they can get away with it...

doubt it. They'd be stupid if they didn't have some clause for that.

They don't have to honor that price. A lot of stuff is done digitally now, and that means a lot more room for human error. In the old days, a store would probably be more obligated to honor an accidentally lowered price, but not anymore.

Eh, AC3 looks good. You have to make the distinction between annual Call of Duty and annual Assassin's Creed (if this is what your thinking about). Go watch videos of it, it's looks fantastic.

I remember Walmart had a similar screw-up with prices where they refused to honor the sales price and just cancelled everyone's order instead, so no.

They don't have to honor shit. There was a time when Amazon/Target fucked up and sold PS3's for $40, I bought 3 of them, they canceled all of the orders. There was another thread just like this about it:  http://www.giantbomb.com/playstation-3/93-1463/gigantic-pricing-error/35-476682/?

I have a big issue calling it Ass Creed III. I know why you would call it that but I dont like to...

Hopefully it is true, because everything they're showing as of now looks incredible.

Just keep in mind AC3 have been in development for close to 3 years when its released. Its not jsut another one of those.

this basicly.

I say if you don't want to buy a game don't. But not buying the game that does the most new things in years then sends a pretty bad message. Especially if you like the games.

Why not buy this one! and next year don't buy assassins creed 3 Retribution/revengence/return of the king/revival/random noun

Agreed Assassins Creed III does look awesome hopefully it's just different enough to keep me playing. Assassins Creed II was a massive step up from Assassins Creed I but Brotherhood and Revelations just seem to copy Assassins Creed I. Arguably Brotherhood and Revelations are practically indistinguishable from each other apart from a few minor changes. Also I hope the tree climbing is as easy as they make it look!

It probably is true, I have all confidence in that ACIII will become a GOTY contender, hopefully. Preordered for Xbox 360 actually.

Just 19 days left....
