Figured that would happen. They shouldve allowed any choice of game though. I wouldve been upset to pick the watchdogs bundle to get AC instead...

I would think they should give the people who pre-ordered Watch Dogs the game when it comes out or Give them a 60 dollar credit toward any PS4 peripheral/game.

They must have either thought watch dogs would b out earlier or something b/c I can't imagine anyone at Ubisoft thinking it was smart to launch two open world 3rd person games shortly after gtav, at the same time as next gen, cod and B4, and in direct competition w/ one another. Better to sell as many as they can of AC4, then release watch dogs after tax season. The target consumers r the same for these games so they would hav been limiting their sales for both games as a whole.

In other words, it doesn't surprise me all bundles were replaced with AC4.

Ugh, so glad I went the BF4 route instead.

I think ACIV looks better than Watch Dogs anyway.

Killzone SF is the most impressive launch game though imo.

After watching the last gameplay video having to hack a terminal/clinb a tower it is the same game anyway

I guess that was Ubisoft's tactic all along: to maximize now on ac4 sales and induce those excited watch dog players on ac4.

Told you. I'd be saying I want W_D so give me the console at the same RRP, send me W_D on launch date but give everyone the special edition. Don't get me wrong, I like AC4 and I've played it on PS4, but that would be gone very quickly if I'd got that bundled (Went for the mega one for the camera.)

ACIV is one of the two launch titles I am picking up.

That being said, I get how crushing it must be to get the game that YOU want taken away. I really feel for the guys and gals that were looking forward to Watch_Dogs, not to be confused with the porno flick Watch Dongs.

Though hopefully you all will enjoy ACIV as much as I'm hoping that I will.

I'd cancel my order.... I've had enough of these Assassins Creed games. They should have made Watch Dogs should be a modern day version of Assassins creed where you are a modern day assassin. We all have to wait because these idoits want to manufacture big sales for ACIV.
