Assassin's Creed Still PS3 Exclusive

A Community Manager from Ubisoft under the name of 'UbiRazz' has slated thet the Xbox 360. "Ubisoft have confirmed no such thing. Assassin's Creed will come on PlayStation 3 and at this time, no other platform has been confirmed." said UbiRazz. The question is, will it be coming to the 360? Our press sources listed the Assassins Creed E3 trailer under both the Xbox 360 and the PS3, which seems weird if it isn't coming to Microsoft's console.

Have negotiations between Ubisoft and Microsoft over Assassins Creed gone sour or have Ubisoft just changed their mind? Of course, it's always possible that Ubisoft will officially announce that Assassins Creed is coming to the 360 next week, and this is all a ploy to quash rumours about the game. What do you think?

Is this really considered news? Or do message board mods now dictate policy of companies?

Islandkiwi6556d ago

This is the worst kept secret ever, and I still don't get it. Why bother calling this an exclusive to the PS3 when it so obviously isn't going to be? This is Ubisoft!

And why would Sony pay for this type of announcement? Ubisoft would have to keep this secret (already failed, btw) until it released on the ps3.

Shadowstorm6556d ago

It's already confirmed for Xbox 360 and PC.

OutLaw6556d ago

Everything that has been coming out about this game has been rumors. Until Ubisoft says something themselves I and others like myself are going to post the rumors. We all just have to wait patiently and see what happens next.

TheXgamerLive6556d ago

It is defiantely coming to the XBOX 360, the deal is though is that s-fony paid X amount of dollars to keep this title as a exclusive for somewhere between 3 to 6 months, and it's agreed that no official announcement for the xbox 360 version could be made until it's release for the ps3 "UNLESS" the ps3 doesnt release in november as planned, then it will become an XBOX 360 announced and released title by xmas. That's what I've heard through the grape vine anyway's.
Either way, we get it and for now ubi isnt allowed to comment otherwise. But, dont worry b/c the plauge station 3 wont come out this year as it's still a horrible yield cell and bottlenecking rsx ps3. Were looking better and better arent we?!!!! Oh yes!!!!!

Can We Finally Admit Assassin's Creed 3 Deserves an Apology?

AC3 was released during a turbulent transition period for Ubisoft and the Assassin's Creed series. It ventured into uncharted territory, narratively and mechanically, which caused it to receive mixed reviews. At its core, though, it's a damn good stealth game.

Nope, I hated 3, connar was bland, literally the most flat character in the entire game. Not to mention to myriad of bugs, camera issues, and that annoying thing where he automatically ditches his weapon you payed for for the sake of a cool finishing move forcing you to trek back to your base after almost every encounter just to re-equip your own weapon. It just didn't work as fluidly as the others like 2 and 4

The series peaked at AC3 for me. It’s been my favourite in the series. Connor will always be one of my favourite video game protagonists.

Becuzisaid248d ago

No. Game was BORING. Connor was really dull. Environments, while impressive, because of the geographic location and time period were not really exciting to be in. I would love some kind of game set in there colonial American time period, but a game like AC that back then centered around parkour and vertical traversal really didn't fit those environments.

-Foxtrot248d ago

Nope

There was a lot of issues but mine is how they handled the war

They told us Connor was not going to get involved, that the war was more of a background setting for the real story and it wasn’t going to be one sided

They lied, even the cinematic E3 trailer showed Connor emerge from the Colonist side and slaughter the red coats to get to his target, inspiring the Colonists to fight back

I just thought it would have made more sense lore wise that the red coats were mostly compiled of Assassins fighting the Colonist templars who wanted to take the new world for themselves.

Since the Red coats lost the war, it would then explain how the Templars started to gain the upper hand and how on the future the assassins were mostly killed off and the Templar’s had pretty much taken over everything.

Instead it just felt like they didn’t want to p*** off the American audience

Even Haytham was cool, he should have been an Assassin through and through and should have been the main lead.

toxic-inferno248d ago

The game even seems to lack the humour of the other games. It almost seems as though the idea of even slightly making fun of American history wouldn't be acceptable.

-Foxtrot248d ago

Exactly

It just felt super safe

“Better not make the colonists look super bad incase people boycott our game”

jeromeface247d ago

someone missed the whole point

-Foxtrot247d ago

There was literally no point

What I've just said above would at least make sense lore wise and why the Assassins start to loose their war, die off and how the Templars are in control in the future of almost everything....what they did was just, pointless

CrimsonWing69248d ago

I’m one one of those weird people that liked Ass Creed 3, but to be fair I never got around to finishing it.
