And GS won't price-match if Fry's is out of stock. But if they are sold-out, you can always get a rain-check for that price. Though you may have to wait about a week. But I guess that's worth the $20 savings.
Yeah I just ran over to GameStop with the ad and they were in shock. They couldn't price match it though, and wouldn't give a reason why. I just asked for my money back, and they obliged nicely. I'll just head over to Best Buy or Circuit City on Tuesday with the ad and get my price match there.

Anyone wanna watch the first 45 minutes of Assassin's Creed? Just click here, but do so at your own risk. Obviously, there will be major spoilers.

I maintain that the beginning of a story is not a spoiler.

I'm gonna do the same. Had the LE preordered at Gamestop, but with Mass Effect coming out next week, using the $30 savings on that makes more sense.

I would have to agree, its not a spoiler, but it could ruin the fun of the first 45 minuets for you.

After reading EGM's latest comments, I'm glad I'm not picking this up. Graphics look fantastic, but it would seem the gameplay/controls pose some serious issues. I may rent it to check it out, but I was cautiously apprehensive about this and it looks like I was justified.

Personally, i'm waiting for more official reviews to decide. While controls seem like they can be problematic, it also sounded like it worked well after getting used to them.

I'm debating between this and Mass Effect though, as i'm probably only going to buy one or the other.

Okay, so apparently it is coming out the 14th, for all GameStop owned stores anyway. I just called up two GameStop because I was really hoping it would come out tomorrow where I pre-ordered it, but apparently not. Now I'm going to have to go to Best Buy tomorrow after school and hope they release it because I want this game bad.

From what I've heard the game controls are like any other game, that when you get used to them they're fine. Personally, I'm loving these puppeteer controls, no more XXYYY combo cheesey stuff.

Do they? I saw the 13th on the Circuit City website.

Well, if anyone gets it tomorrow, do tell where. I personally think this whole affair is stupid, the official xbox.com listing is for the 13th...

I'm torn about which system to get this on. Currently I have multiplatform games exclusively on the 360, but this one has no multiplayer and if it's really emersive, I might enjoy playing it without the intrusive noise of the 360 fan blowing. I could also cover myself game-wise if the dreaded RROD rears its ugly head. Does anyone know if there are any sixaxis functions to the game or if missing rumble would hinder play in any way?

www.gametrailers.com gives it a 9.1. They say the story is amazing, the graphics are outstanding, and you'll love the freerunning around the cities, but the gameplay gets repetative in the 2nd half of the game, and the enemy AI is suspect.

Glad you mentioned that, now that I'm the owner of a PS3, I'm probably going to lean towards buying games on thePS3 instead of 360 that 1) Have no online play and 2) Don't suck with the non-360 controller.

I'll wait for reviews on this one...bad controls can quickly ruin a game for me.

I just called my local Gamestop and they won't have this in till tomorrow. That gives me one less day to finish it before Mass Effect comes out.

7/10 from 1up. Some spoilers at the beginning in regards to the story though, so i'd avoid it if you want to be kept spoiler free.

http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3164320

All the other early reviews are high though, in the 90's, so make of it what you will

Yeah, EGM/1up really has something against this game. Right now the other scores out there are, 100%, 91%, 95%. That's a huge difference from their 70%.

I think that needs updated. It's playing the Beowulf trailer for me.

Teamxbox didn't seem to like it either only gave it a 7.9 , they say it's deeply flawed.
