What's up with the preorder prices for AC4 & Far Cry 4?

Even with the 25% off of GMG it's almost the price of a retail console title. What gives? Does this mean the games will be optimised for PC and they'll run at 60 fps + without hiccups?

Canadian pricing for the standard versions of both games is set at $69.99. Are you in Canada?

No, UK. Both downloads are 50. That over 90 Canadion dollars.

I think Ubisoft is just trying to kill off their PC fanbase.

I see, so they've increased the price for you guys as well. EA seems to be doing the same here in Canada, not sure if it applies to the UK.

Look, I love AC and FC but there's no way I'm paying 50 when I know it'll take months before the games run at an acceptable frame rate.

Man your guys' prices are asinine. I was already peeved when new games started costing $60 instead of $50 when I made the Wii to Wii U jump. I'm hoping there's some form of deal for them close to launch.

Quit supporting pre orders for digital media. Just please do not do it. It's not like in earlier days where if you didn't have your game pre ordered you might walk into the store to find that they are sold out. All they are doing is taking your money early so that you are stuck with the game regardless of how it turns out.

It's such a sleazy business practice that needs to come to an end.
