Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag $14 on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U today

Amazon and Best Buy are both offering last year's Assassin's Creed at a heavy discount.

The latest game in the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, can be yours today for just $14 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U, thanks to Amazon and Best Buy.

You'll have to act fast to take advantage of the sale, which drops the game's price down from $40. It's the Deal of the Day on Best Buy's website, and may only last just as long on Amazon.

Black Flag was released last October on the 360, PS3, and Wii U before coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in November. None of those three are included in today's deal on Best Buy or Amazon.

Those having trouble deciding between platforms should remember that the PS3 version (along with the PS4 version) contains exclusive content that will not be coming to other platforms.

The sequel to Black Flag, Assassin's Creed Unity, was recently announced. It's coming to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year and may include a four-player co-op mode. Additionally, a new, separate Assassin's Creed is rumored to be in the works for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Bought a copy for the Wii U.  I'll enjoy not having to update the game before being allowed to play it!

I hope they do the same for Watch Dogs.

Already played through it on xbox one via gamefly. If I hadn't beaten it already, I might consider buying it for $14. It was definitely fun for a while, but it did start to get repetitive (just like all the other AC games) toward the end.

I've had it on PS4 since launch and barely played it.  It just doesn't grab me, but I've never really been an AC fan.  I guess that's OK since I only paid $10 for it, via that ridiculous trade-in offer at Future Shop (Canada) and then the upgrade to next-gen at EB.

Strange that the pc download (Steam) version is not at least the same price.  I think this is the first time I have ever seen a console game on sale for a better price than the pc version.

Unless the DLC really matters to you, the Wii U version is the way to go. The Gamepad is used to display the map and HUD items, taking them off the main screen. Finding treasure chests, animus pieces, and locations was made much easier. I sank over 40hrs into Black Flag and it's a huge improvement over ACIII.

yup that's a good enough reason for me to get it on Wii U

Already own it for my PS4. I wouldn't want it on my PS3 or XBox 360 anyways.

Anyone who hasn't gotten this game needs to now.

Man, if the discount included $20 for the next/current gen, I'd pick it up in a heartbeat.

Can we have some info about the Gold Edition (which puts this price into perspective), and is the release of the Gold Edition the reason they are trying to really move this inventory?  When I look on different sites (including seller sites) I see quite a few discrepancies on what the Gold Edition actually includes, and I don't see Gold Edition for Xbox 360.  Confused as hell.

For that price, you certainly won't regret it. I got it in November on Wii U. It's excellent.

@Ultra_Taco  I've been thinking about this for a while. Believe it or not, I still haven't finished Assassin's Creed 3. Is this game worth it to play?

@spacecadet25 The Gold Edition is basically the game along with the Season Pass. It is only available for the PS3 and PC as a digital download.
