Shack PSA: Assassin's Creed 2 $30 on Consoles

Both Amazon and GameStop have quietly dropped the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II to $29.99, half of its earlier $59.99 list price. nope Whether this is a temporarily sale, as Destructoid postulates, or universal price drop on the open-world murder game is unknown, as other retailers still list it at $59.99. Regardless, it's a enticing price for those that have been patiently biding their time.

Meanwhile, a standalone sequel to Assassin's Creed II is due out sometime before Christmas 2010, which will be set in Rome and feature the addition of multiplayer.
