Assassin's Creed 4's exclusive content is also coming to PS4

And so is Watch Dogs' exclusive content

by David Scammell

The exclusive content available in the PlayStation 3 version of Watch Dogs will also be available on PS4, Ubisoft has confirmed.

"We can confirm that customers who will purchase Watch_Dogs on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will be able to download 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch," a Ubisoft spokesperson said in a statement provided to VideoGamer.com this morning. "As of now, we have no more details to share."

The content is said to offer 60 minutes' worth of "exclusive gameplay" unavailable in the Xbox 360, PC and Wii U versions.

The PS3 and PS4 versions of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will also include 60 minutes of exclusive content. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Ubisoft rolling with Sony on exclusiveness leads me to believe that other publishers are rolling with the other guys, whether it's EA or Activision. We'll see soon.

Well everything is pointing towards EA if anything. Activision has exclusive content coming to both Diablo III and Destiny for PS3&PS4.

@Sandmano
And EA has always been with Sony, were at a new generation things can very well change. Just look at Squaresoft and Nintendo in the PS1,N64 gen. There will be Betrayal next gen;)

With a new generation upon us, it is perfect timing for developers to strike new deals and partnerships.

Guess i will buy it when it's on sale or gamefly it, not paying 64.00 dollars for an incomplete game.way to treat consumer Ubi hope hackers screw your Uplay system for two months. @sway but you still got be it a month later this not going to Xbox version weather a month or a year later.that why thier anger , trust me if I had the ability to hack I would take the uplay server down for a year just to call it evens. Babies who will use thier wallet to effect thier bottom dollar, not fan of second hand but I hope the second sale are great for this & game stop comments on it.
@sway yeah the whole BOGT & other was wrong but I guess 50 million buys you a longer time period.

Why so much hate for Ubisoft...? When MS shagged R* and Activision for timed exclusive DLC, did PS3 fans wish terrible things on R*? ...No! Did we support the poorly ported PS3 versions of COD? ..Yes!

We put up and shut up, got on with it and still supported GTA4...

Microsoft raised a generation of babies...and they spoiled them rotten. Put your pacifier back in your mouth.

The shoe is on the other foot...and the shoe fits very well indeed :)

@witwicky343

Yes agree 1 month or so exclusivity on COD DLC, but I waited over 6 months to play BOGT & TLATD GTA 4 DLC. But I was happy when we got it...the best thing is no 3rd party exclusivity on anything at all.

Dammed it!!! I have enough of UBIsoft,Sony is getting all the love from Watchdog to AC. I will not buy this game until it hits bargin basement price. I have supported and bought all Assassin's Creed game on my Xbox 360 and this is what we xbox owners get? Go the H!$# UBIsoft.

To be fair, the last few Assassin's Creed games have been the same, PS3 version getting some exclusive content, why is it only now you have an issue?
MasterCornholio  +   757d ago
Well then the solution to this is very easy.

Instead of being an XBOX360 fanboy just buy yourself a PS4 that way you can have access to the exclusive DLC for games like Assassins Creed, Watchdogs and Destiny.

Let go of your fanboyism and give in to being a gamer.

Is this really the straw that broke the camel's back for you? They've been doing this since Assassin's Creed II.

Timed exclusivity is quite disrespectful generally, but I'm not going to boycott a company who's offering the platform I support early content.

"but I'm not going to boycott a company who's offering the platform I support early content."

I see what you did there ;)
KrisButtar  +   757d ago
Ubisoft has always seemed to favor Sony, so I buy their stuff on the PS3. Same as I buy Bethesda games on the 360, and so on and so on. I always go for the better version which ever console it is on.
Jek_Porkins  +   757d ago
They aren't doing it out of kindness or favortism, it's cold hard cash, same with MS and content.
KrisButtar  +   757d ago
lol, I thought it was obvious how consoles get favors from publishers. I do enjoy exclusive extras more than timed extras. Wonder how the publishers will line up for next gen for the big 3. Its going to be interesting.
darkvenom  +   757d ago
@sdf...
but it's ok when the 360 gets exclusive dlc?
PFFT  +   757d ago
rarely does the 360 get DLC that stays on the system. Exclusive DLC is BS no more no less.
Sevir  +   757d ago
thats incorrect
Fallout 3, skyrim, Tomb Raider, Call of Duty and GTA4 and probably GTA5 and what ever new Multiplatform title gets announced at MS's event will get exclusive content. It's not worth having a hissi-fit over business practices that has been happening since the start of the PS3/XBOX360 generation.
matrixman92  +   757d ago
@sevir

you dont know what timed exclusives are...literally all of those games you posted, the dlc has been on both systems...these are just straight up exclusive
sway_z  +   757d ago
In any event ...it won't be 3rd party Exclusivity that will decide next gen, it will be 1st Party stuff.

That is where I expect to see differentiating factors.
Qrphe  +   757d ago
The PS3 version of AC3 outsold the 360 version for the first time around and it was probably due to the extra content for one. I'm sure Sony expects the same to happen with the exclusive content they're getting.
