How did they lie? The only lie was saying it was ready for November when it clearly was not.

They lied in that had the game actually been at the level they demoed in 2012 it would have been ready for launch some time ago. But the truth is the entire sequence was not actual live gameplay. It was scripted and prerendered using the game engine. You can watch the guy playing it on stage and at some points he isn't touching any controls at all while the character is moving around on screen. It was a lie, period. They knew the game was no where near being close for launch and yet they panned it off as if it were coming soon. 2 years is not soon, it wasn't even in the beta window and they knew it.

Ubisoft wanted something to show at E3.... It's typical third party fashion to rush something to E3 just to impress people.

First party (console manufacturers) are often just as guilty of it. Halo 2 and Killzone 2 spring to mind.

They had a game in 2012 that required top of the line hardware(Multiple times the power of new consoles). They severely overestimated the next gen consoles. It seems most devs did, seeing as a **** ton start delaying games.

they just shot themselves in the foot by saying this. you can't say the visuals have not been affected at all and then turn around and now say that they were forced to do a reveal for a game they were producing for a 7th gen console. retards. so now we know indefinite that the visuals have been downgraded
