The best sale I've seen so far was getting ac4 for about $35 from gohastings.com.
Be on the look out for a deal in that range via slickdeals.net.
I thought AC1 was great. Over the years, the combat has improved, core game mechanics(parkour), and the scope has increased.
If you weren't too thrilled with AC1, then you'll most likely not be too thrilled with ac4.
Take a trip to a local gamestop to see if you can demo the game.
The main thing I like about the games is exploring and climbing up buildings.
Some tasks get repetitive as hell.
I won't spoil the story for you.
If you haven't played Heavy Rain and have a ps3, cop that.
That was the best single player game I've played as of late.
I know you said you wanted a next gen game, but you'd be missing out on one of the best gams of last gen.
