Just set your VPN location too anywhere in the EU, fire up Steam and order if you're in the UK. That's what I've done

Perfect time for GoG to slip in with something, though Green Man Games are apparently offering 30% off.

I really wanted this on day of release too, I may buy the physical copy.

This is really annoying. I've played each AC game so far on Christmas day, and that'll be the same for AC3. It will be completely annoying if I have to play it outside of Steam because I'm one of these people who really enjoy the convenience and uniformity of having the whole "all my games in one place" thing.

I can sort of tolerate Origin because it's at least a half decent Steam clone and does have a fair few exclusive franchises. A lot of people are on it too so it's not dead in the water. But Uplay as well? And just Ubisoft titles? It's getting ridiculous. If every publisher has their own digital distribution platform the market's going to get awfully convoluted down the line.

I will wait until the very last (December 24th) to get this game but I do have to have it by Christmas as tradition would dictate.

I hear it's all to do with GAME being demanding and not allowing Ubisoft to sell it on Steam so they can maximize physical boxed sales. I don't understand why GAME are still in such a strong position and still sway such a big publisher. When they didn't sell Mass Effect 3 the sales didn't suffer. If it's true that GAME are behind this I really don't see why Ubisoft would allow themselves to be dictated to.
