Where are the Xbox One Assassin's Creed IV reviews?

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is released today on current generation consoles and the favourable reviews are sailing in thick and fast. The majority of media outlets have critiqued the PlayStation 4 version as well as the PS3 & 360 versions of which they have made cross-gen technical comparisons. However there is one format that has been conspicuously absent from any review, the Xbox One edition. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I get the feeling we're going to see a lot of this 'media wrangling' in the coming generation.

The truth always comes out in the end though. Not even MS can silence everyone.

The Xbox One version of Assassin's Creed IV is technically better than the PS4 version.

It has a 1080p resolution and higher frame rate. But because Sony have money-hatted Ubisoft they have embargoed reviews of the Xbone version because then everyone would know it has the best version of the game.

What? I hope that's sarcasm. There isn't one multiplatform game out there that runs better on the X1.

What? Be honest now, did you just make all that up? Link or fud.

Haha the fanboyism is reaching fever pitch, entertaining stuff :)

Many of the reviews have been based on the PS4 version which was played at a Ubisoft review event.

This includes the 9/10 EDGE review

One word: Embargo

It's interesting that sites are reviewing games released for current gen (like ACIV) but using the PS4 version which isn't out for another month.

Shows there's excitement in the media for the PS4, and the games are standing up to scrutiny.

Interestingly the Edge review of ACIV makes no mention of multiplayer, and they tested the PS4 version - so I wonder if they have a dev / debug or retail unit for testing as we know multiplayer won't work until Day 1 patch is released (although I see that as of today 1.50 is available on Sony site for download).

On topic - I thought rumours were that MS put in place the embargoes on XB1 reviews?
