From QJ.net : "In terms of the sheer scope of its ambition there are few games that we know of that can hold a candle to Ubisoft Montreal's long in development epic period piece, Assassin's Creed. What follows is a collection of every single solitary bit of information we've been able to dig up, rustle up, sniff out and extricate from every corner of the web and print, for your convenience.
If you haven't seen the impressive CG trailer, you really ought to check it out, not only is it extremely cool, it'll also give you a pretty good clue as to what to expect from the game.
Drawing from history, Ubisoft is crafting a game that takes the sort of action oriented acrobatic platforming gameplay seen it the landmark Prince of Persia games, and puts you in a playground the size of a city. Taking place during the Third Crusade, Ubisoft's Montreal team have recreated the middle eastern cities of Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus for you to explore. Set in the year 1191, shortly after King Richard the Lionheart occupied the oceanside port city of Acre, the game places you in the boots of Altair, a freshly recruited member of the feared "Hashshashin", a mystic offshoot sect of Muslim executioners from which the modern word "Assassin" is possibly derived.
I know I know, but I have a "bet" that I want everyone to remember!!! This game "Assassin's Creed" will not, I repeat WILL NOT come out/be released on the ps3!!! Say what you will but the ps3 after two (2) years of trial and error mostly error still isnt able to run this game on a finished cell and rsx set yet. It wasn't at E3 and still cant or wont ever be in it's current state. The power of the XBOX 360 is set perfectly for this game and will do incredible on it but ps3 wont see it. I know It's just my own "personal" opinion and not all you piss s 3 fan boys but you'll see and remember...I bet you that your system wont see it's release!!!!....EVER!!!! The ps3 has a problem running anything more graphically demanding than a sonic the hedgehog game.
XGamer - U retard PS3 is not even in final dev kit form and it way more powerfull than X360.Assassins Creed is comin to PS3 first as it's a timed exclusive,X360 will see a watered down version in say 6 months.X360 couldn't handle half the effects that PS3 can do.
I don't care if you don't believe me and honestly I don't care. But multiplatform developers are developing games on the xbox 360 since it has a great set of tools. I'm not sure if microsoft did it on purpose but going from xbox 360 to ps3 is harder then going from ps3 to xbox 360. Like it's pretty simple to take a game like Warhawk which is coded for the cell, then bunch that code together and it will run on the xbox 360 fine. But the other way for example taking Oblivion and porting to the ps3 is really hard. This is why ps3 games are getting canceled, it's not worth the money. They can make a whole new game in that time for the xbox 360 and PC.
can,t wait to get this game on the ps3.this will look superb on the ps3 with that blue ray and rsx then cell.i think you right it will be watered down for the 360.
to the mart have you got xbox live,if yes give me your gamertag and i give you mine,and we meet on xbox live on any 360 game you want.ps actually ive got 2 xbox360,s.
