This is a deal of the week on the Ubisoft North America store and is priced at the usual £9.99 on the UK store.

To get this deal you just need to do the following:

1. Go to http://proxify.co.uk
2. Enter the following URL: http://emailus.ubi.com/cgi-bin11/DM/t/n8e60UyshY0FZp0uSS0Ep
3. Search for 'Assassin's Creed' on the UbiShop homepage and select 'Assassin's Creed' 'PC Download' which is about halfway down the page.
4. Should display price of $5. Just check out as normal from there.

Not sure about the DRM on games downloaded from the Ubishop or whether they can be registered on Steam as I'm at work at the moment so I won't be able to start the download myself until I get home.

The download will work fine from over here, the proxy is only needed to get to the website because it automatically defaults to the UK page when you visit the page using most UK based ISP's.

Seemed like a good deal to me though.

Was just about to say the same, not wise entering card details when you are connecting over a proxy. You are effectively passing your details through another persons system which could potentially be recorded.
#4
Any information entered over SSL cannot be decrypted at the proxy's end.

If you want to be extra safe though, just use PayPal and you'll be fine.

proxify wont let me log in to ubisoft
#6
Really? It worked for me OK.

If you already have an Ubishop UK account then you may need to sign up for a different US one.
#7
no, it was proxify blocking me from using certain features without signing up for their premium service that stopped me logging in, not ubi themselves

edit: i get this -

You'll need to work out how to download it first. See above.

Yes, you can.

Are these Steam and digital download services any good? I like the idea but are there any restrictions and back up facilities as I reinstall my PC often..

@titanwars
I like steam, you can backup the games either to disc or a hard drive also all the patches and updates install automaticley also you can redownload the game. I've also used the ubisoft downloads I'm not too sure, I purchased hitman blood money not long ago but had to reformat my pc due to my motherboard going bust and wasn't able to redownload it and didn't know if I could back the game up. If this was on steam I would buy it without hesitation but as it's direct from ubisoft I think I'll give it a miss.1 thing abought steam though is I think you need to be connected to the net to play even in single player (I may be wrong though) another option if you have to reformat is to use backup software such as macrium reflect which is free but is best used with DVDs as of backing upto s hard drive can give integrity errors.hope this helps

1. These days steam can cache games so you can play single player or offline (for lan games).

2. Steam includes an option to backup your games which will split it into cd or dvd size for you. More info here http://supportwiki.steampowered.com/wiki/Using_the_Steam_Backup_Feature or here https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8794-YPHV-2033

@deadmonkey
I did mention that you can backup to disc, I only mentioned macrium reflect as titanwars mentioned that he reformats quite a lot and I thought the information I gave might be if use as no one likes reformatting. As for the having to be connected to steam, don't you have to log in to your acount which would have to have a connection to the net I may be wrong though.
#20
you do not need a net connection to play single player games with Steam, that's the first point.

and also, if you don't fancy burning 20 discs to back-up your library, you can copy the entire Steam program files folder to an external HDD, then install steam fresh on your new build, copy over the files and folders that aren't in the new one, and boom! all your games as you left them ready to play.

just did it myself the other day (win7), worked like a charm ;)

Yep, I just did this when I clean installed from 32 bit to 64 bit. Just copy the games folders and jobs a gooden.

Don't you?

It wouldn't let me play bioshock when our Internet connection was down a couple of weeks ago but I have to admit that I'm still a bit of a newbie when it comes to Steam.

Not sure what to tell you really, it worked for me and pretty much everyone else here it would seem.

that's odd, cos when BT had their 'hiccup' the other week there (twice..) i had a right good shot at BioShock cos i couldn't play CS:S
dunno what to tell you mate, it works for me. maybe check out the Steam forums, there might be a setting somewhere that needs changed, a wee tick-box need unticked or something..

Did Ubi ever fix the XBOX 360 Wireless controller to work with AC 1 or 2 ?
#26
It is a good price, but to me I would rather go with a normal retailer who will give me a physical copy. Currently they are at £4.57 or so. I know its £1.44 off the mark of the price being quoted by the OP, but if you take into account burning it on to a DVD (assuming you want your copy like that), and any currency charges incurred such as commission, it would probably work out to a similar price.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Assassins-Creed-Directors-Cut-DVD/dp/B002T44KLU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1290251828&sr=8-1

Even if it does not work out at a similar price, to me personally I just prefer a physical UK bought edition.

Thanks for alerting me to this though OP, Heat added :)

Yeah we had a VM outage in our area recently which left us with massive packet loss for a couple of days and made the connection pretty much unusable.

As I said though, it probably is something that I'm doing wrong and no doubt a quick google would probably fix it. :)

@deadmonkey
in the first few lines of my original response I said that you can backup to disc or a hard drive as for the being connected to steam I said I think you have to be connected but I may be wrong. I was only trying. To give someone a helping hand with a querie
#29
No worries bboy71, I think deadmonkey was just elaborating on your post, I'm not reading criticism in it.

Thanks to all in this post - I was about to post that I've just bought it from Amazon for under a fiver and would always prefer to get it on disc in case I wanted to uninstall and re-install later, but I never knew you could backup Steam games onto discs - I will bear this in mind whenever a game is available cheaper on Steam in the future.

the whole joy of Steam is that all your games are tied to your account, so it doesn't matter a jot how often you pull your computer to bits & put it back together again, your games are always there waiting on you :)
