Assassin's Creed for Free Too Good to be True, Ubisoft Offering Compensation

Just a few days ago Ubisoft was offering Assassin’s Creed for free on the Ubisoft store. Not being able to resist a free game, I of course downloaded the product. However, today I got an email from Ubisot stating that the price was a mistake, and the serial key for the game will be deactivated within the next 48 hours. (Assassin's Creed, PC)

That's messed up

They'd have to pay me to play this game again. This laid the foundation for a good game, but it wasn't actually a good game

This is nice of them too, to give you something for literally nothing. You just get a 50% coupon for nothing, it's probably worth more than a 5 year old game

Agree totally. but 50% off ACIII would be amazing.

hah! They did the same thing 2 years ago lol, except that time, it seemed that your entire bin total was coming out to zero dollars... I'm not sure who runs their digital store, but they seem to mess up very often haha

Thats stupid on their behalf. For one THEY messed up, and if everyone was getting 50 percent off then fine, but 25 percent....well okay I guess.

However the thing is this game is OLD and not that good. I like the later Assassins Creed games, but the first one was boring as hell and no one is buying it anymore, so why not just let the people that got it walk away free? At least they are playing your game, and probably want more so they will buy the others. Why create issues and hassles of deleting it?

I tried to take that offer an hour ofter seeing it was posted. They had already disabled the page and the one other way to get to that games page had it listed as $0.00 but unavailable. It was obvious to me that it was an error and they quickly tried to fix it.
