lensoftruth? Umm...about that:

Watch the 3rd video clip from the bottom, the PS3 vs 360.

Watch the screen tear ticker on the bottom right hand corner of the two systems, you can CLEARLY SEE the 360 version numbers on the right side TEARING like crazy, especially during the first several seconds of the vid'. All the while the PS3 stays at exactly zero tears.

This continues throughout...fast forward to one minute and just watch as the 360 side sits at a 0.1 tear while the PS3 sits at exactly 0.0, and a higher framerate.

Yet in the "final analysis", they claim the 360 version doesn't tear at all. Not only that, they claim the PS3 tore more despite VIDEO EVIDENCE to the contrary.

Wow. Is this Gametrailers' GRID debacle all over again?

I've seen a lot of comparison videos with frame analysis between 360 and PS3, and while overall(Let's ignore the bad port of Assassin's Creed for the sake of this conversation) the 360 versions look a bit sharper and have an overall more steady frame rate, the PS3 has very little screen tearing in the Assassin's Creed games compared to the 360 versions, and frankly that's a lot more important to me.

I know right, if you watch the videos the ps3 clearly has more FPS most of the time but they claim they average slightly lower. The Xbox version constantly has slight tearing. The only thing the wii U had over anyone else was it seemed to have a steadier framerate, not a lot better or anything but it didnt seem to jump around as much.

All three look good, so everyones a winner here i guess.

Question, how come the first video and third video have significantly more frames for the Wii U version? I mean in the first clip alone the number of frames is over double the others.

Is the Wii U version rendered differently causing more frames?

People can nitpick all day. But I think this is the best looking AC to date by far. The naval game play is beautiful. The water in this game looks very real. The environment, weather, etc are all very well done. I've put 60 hours into this game in 2 weeks time and I still get fascinated with the games appearance.

I have it on the PS3.

All 3 versions were excellent builds.. Ubisoft knows how to make multiplats fairly equal & surprisingly built the wii u version 99.9% identical.. Every other wii u port was inferior to the ps3/360 builds.. Still, since PS3 has an hour extra exclusive content, & the controller feels better to me, i chose that version.. game installs can be 20GB for all i care, i have plenty of HDD space & PS3 remains my console of choice.. I dont even use my 360 for anything at all since i no longer have xbl.. I only turn it on once a month to keep the firmware updated..
