GameStop employees are getting a special gift from Ubisoft

"GameStop employees are being treated with a special gift from Ubisoft that is sure to make hardcore fans of the [Assassin's Creed] series very happy."- PSU.com (GameStop, Industry, Ubisoft)

That is an awesome gift.

Instead of bribing retail and media they should be giving free stuff to the people that actually buy their games.
DragonKnight  +   941d ago
There should be a bubble up option that says "F*cking Troof* and I'd give you a bubble up for that. For now, I'll settle for a Well Said.
Root  +   941d ago
lol...so true

You can tell that as time goes on and we get to AC5 or AC6 they will even start bribing gaming sites.

"Do you think they will start to realise that we are doing too much AC and are milking it to death"

"Naaah....just give them some free stuff and they'll be fine"

I have one and it is most certainly not going on eBay.

Dude, I wouldn't argue with him until his Green Candle goes out, otherwise he'll just summon the Dragonzord and he'll wreck the damn city.
ShadowKingpin  +   941d ago
I am the same way. I refuse to sell it.
TopDudeMan  +   941d ago
Pretty much.
Wagz22  +   941d ago
yea I got one of them and it is really nice and there's like 30,000 made.
Valenka  +   941d ago
Four of my friends that work at GameStop hate Assassin's Creed, so I'm sure we'll be seeing some of these on eBay shortly.
Seraphim  +   940d ago
yeah I'm thinking at least 30k of those 31.xk will end up on ebay Lol.
WeAreLegion  +   941d ago
I hated working at GameStop.
Swiggins  +   941d ago
Really? I loved it, had great co-workers.
DragonKnight  +   941d ago
So why are GameStop employees getting this exactly? Not to put anyone down, a job is a job, but what did they do to help along the success of Assassin's Creed besides be there to take the money of the gamers that wanted to buy the game and/or incessantly push the pre-order of it?

Shouldn't gamers be rewarded for, you know, FUNDING the game?

Maybe so they will think ubi is an awesome company, thus they will speak positivly of AC4 to customers. It is common, online, that the thought of AC4 is negative (milking).
DragonKnight  +   941d ago
AC4 should be viewed negatively. Not necessarily because of milking but because of the fundamental shift it's taking from what Assassin's Creed started out as. I mean, no major city, de-emphasis on parkour will no doubt result because of that, an emphasis on ship battles and travel, probably more emphasis on guns. With each new game we're moving AC closer and closer to being a Hitman clone only more open world and with less options for Assassination.
Root  +   941d ago

Someone gets it

This is why in my eyes this is not AC4 but basicaly a filler


You don't end the last game with Juno being set free to take over the world and not even focus on the present for the next, apparent, main title AC game.

I worked for EB Games last year (Australian GameStop contingent), and staff go to varying lengths to pre-sell (getting pre-orders and creating hype) the product to customers. The store I worked at was consistently in the top 12 in the company, a lot of that came from the number of pre-orders we made on Assassin's Creed 3. Our numbers were so good that each member of staff got a free copy of the Freedom edition from Ubisoft. We're not supposed to tell customers this, and I'm not sure the guy that got this Limited Edition cell was allowed to either. It does seem unfair though, but hype is hype. That's what GameStop employees need to do. I certainly bought into the hype of the game, and I thought it was awful. Even marketing it convinced me to believe it would be good, despite the fact that I only really enjoyed 2.

So Ubisoft is trying to bribe Gamestop employees to sell their games for them? Just what gamers need. Not.
Thirty3Three  +   940d ago
"Oh this is my baby! Best present ever! I
ll never sell this!!"

... 'nerdism' at its finest.
ScubaSteve1  +   940d ago
this should of been a preorder bonus not a stupid poster
DivineAssault  +   940d ago
Tod McFarline is a great artist.. Cool free gift but that shouldve been sent to everyone who has an online account for AC.. Oh well, its cool & all but really? Gamestop employees? They must know that its kinda soon for an AC sequel so they want it to be marketed from every angle.. I dont see it selling as well as AC3 did.. Unless its a dual gen release
enkeixpress  +   940d ago
why for GameStop though? lol XD
