Cheapest PS4 price i've seen so far but I woupd like to.warn people as this game has a bunch of confirmed game bugs and issues with very big framerate drops. Something to bear in mind, as it may take a few weeks to patch properly and prices may drop further.

NARMAK

and prices may drop further.


Prices *will* drop further - they always do, it's just a matter of time!

Good price for now though IMO, have some heat.

Reviews put me of

Never mind the reviews. The optimising sounds terribly poor (on all formats, although worst on PS4 for now). Google 'Assassin's Creed Unity' and 'framerate' and you'll see what i mean.

I just hope for the 'Day 1'-ers patches are sent out pronto to get the game to a consistent 30fps. Then again you could argue that nobody should be pre-ordering for (let alone buying on) release day until it's confirmed the game is working as it should be. I'm nervous about Far Cry 4 now

^ You could also argue that games should work on release so pre-ordering/purchasing ought to be safe! Shame on Ubi for releasing such an unpolished game.

Does this code only work for Game Collection games? I'm trying to use the code for Far Cry 4 (via base & gameseek) and it's invalid...

that's not how the games industry works though is it.

If they patch the frame rate issue and other bugs, the game would be good in all honesty.

Don't buy this crap folks. We need to send... A message.

Unfortunately not. Personally, I think MS and Sony should charge more than they already do for patches in the hope more games would just run properly before release. Probably would just mean more games would never get patched though. Sigh.

Looks like their making it easier for me to keeping my boycott of ubisoft going, after the watchdogs debacle.

best price i seen so far regardless of reviews
heat

I'm gonna sell my copy as soon as it arrives. This game aren't worth it at these prices after reading reviews. Will buy when it gets cheap

Where do you enter the code? I cant seem to find it at check out?

im confident far cry 4 will be much better in terms of performance. ubisoft just going for major dick measuring points with this 10000 NPC sht. i could care less if the game runs like a powerpoint presentation. Apparently SLI 980's can't hold 60fps on PC which is just flat out disgraceful

Although a good idea in practise, would only hurt small games. Fez required a patch to fix a save corruption issue, but Phil fish refused to pay the £80,000 certification charge Microsoft make games pay. Although I think this has been scrapped now as play station was free so a lot of indies moved over. I fee sorry for those who don't have Internet

Positive/negative reviews, who cares. This site is all about the price. And seeing as this is the cheapest at the moment I've voted hot.

Saying that thought I was able to pre-order mine for only £1.50 X)

Great price, heat added.
On saying that, so many bad issues around this game on both consoles at the moment, a drop of 18fps is just awful and shouldn't be acceptable for any year old console.
Will wait for release and a patch before I purchase personally, but that's just me..

I read they released a patch last night

Is it optimisation or is it a simple case of designing a game which is demanding too much from the hardware? The number of people in some of the screenshots/videos is going to need plenty of CPU grunt which both consoles don't have. I'm still not convinced that the PS4 is more powerful that the XB1 argument as well so the dire PS4 framerates made me grin - I have a PS4 for my two sons for Christmas so the grin quickly went!!!

I have a decent PC so maybe that is the lesser among evils if I really want to play this game.

Not seent that myself yet, but I'll keep an eye out.
I love the series, but holding back on this one until I know it's technically up to scratch.
Fingers crossed.

Seems to have fixed a few bugs in the earlier missions but nothing regarding frame rate issues. Hmm...

Digital Foundry don't seem too impressed with the performances on the consoles so far

Yeah this is what I read, with this happening I might even jump back into Los Santos until the new year.

Brilliant ordered! Just need a deal on Far Cry, GTA and Dragon Age now

November was already expensive lol - GTA V, Far Cry 4 and Lego Batman 3 are my current purchases on top of minecraft for the ps4. I can't say I was that taken by this AC, last one (Black Flag) was really good and was hoping they would continue with a pirate like theme.

waiting for the Notre Dame edition to drop. Good price though

they have. It's called AC Rogue.

Got my copy early yesterday on PS4... The fps and pop in is pretty bad. The first 10-15 minute intro was a blurry glitchy mess, which soured my initial impression of it. My advice is wait to see if they patch some of these problems first before buying

It'd be on the list if they were releasing it on ps4....sadly no plans from what i read.

The PS4 is a little more powerful than the XB1 but the actual game performance always comes down to the devs.
It's a buggy game, from what I've heard it's worse on PC.
I wouldn't buy it until they sort it out.
