More confirmation that Assassin's Creed will be coming to the Xbox 360 appeared today, with C&VG posting a preview of the Xbox 360 version of the game.
Cant wait to play this on my 360.
but you never will ;)
I bet he will, quote: "Xbox: Xbox 360 PreviewsPreview Assassin's Creed Format Xbox 360 Developer Ubisoft Publisher Ubisoft Genre Action, Adventure 25-Jul-2006 Ubisoft's intriguing 360 and PS3 assassin 'em-up stalks through the streets of old Jerusalem"
So what will be the next newsitem on AC. The PSZero version cancelled and they will confirm that it was running on a 360 afterall on last E3? haha I bet anything is possible
Of course Assassin's Creed is on the Xbox 360, and its online functions will be far superior to the Playstation 3. Just look at all of the Playstation 3 games that have been either cancelled or severely delayed. Playstation 3 has very few third party games. There are so many games that were originally supposed to be exclusive for the Playstation 3, but now they are also on the Xbox 360--and they are BETTER on the Xbox 360!!! Some of the games I am talking about are Fight Night Round 3, The Darkness, Unreal Tournament 2007, Devil May Cry 4, Silent Hill 5, Grand Theft Auto 4, Resident Evil 5, WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2007. Some of those games have even been cancelled for the Playstation 3 or are out NOW on the Xbox 360! I wouldn't be overly surprised if this game didn't make it out on the PS3 at all. Not only is the development cost outrageous, but the over hype for the new system is low, and Sony has done everything in its power to come in 3rd this next-gen race. The risk in making a PS3 game (especially exclusive) is tremendous and clearly not worth it, as many PS3 games are getting canned. I am not saying I think this will happen, only that it wouldn't surprise me.
Until I have an official statement with crystal clear wording FROM UBISOFT saying otherwise, I will assume this game is coming out on 360. None of us knows for a fact either way. All we know is that it is definitely coming out for PS3. Being an independent gamer currently leaning towards MS in the current (or for Nintendo fanboys and Sony fangirls, next) generation of consoles, I'd easily trade console exclusivity of Oblivion for Assassin's Creed if it happens to be as good as it looks and sounds. They've both had their fair share of rumors saying they're going to be multi-platform. Either way, I've had enough of this yes it is no it isn't crap.
Cool can't wait... Ubi knows 360 fans love action adventure prince of persia like games they know they would lose out on an extra 15 million sale's because you know ever 360 owner would buy this game when it comes out.
I don't understand how people are getting so excited about this game. The trailer at E3 was just like MGS4....CUTSCENE, and not what you'll actually see in the game. Or as some call it ingame. Still I'm excited to see what happens but how can a cutscene hype trailer impact so many people this deep.
Halo 3. Except apparently that trailer was in-game, but i dont know, looked more cinematic and CG, than In-Game, but I could be wrong. But Hype over games isnt uncommon.
halo 3 trailer was 100% in game engine. from bungie!
I don't see why everyone cares so much about Halo 3. The game looks mediocre at best. GRAW looks better than that piece of crap. GoW looks about 20 times better than GRAW.
are you blind?
halo 3 was a 100% ingame.....why Because in the making of that trailer they showed you rotate 360 degrees around master chief and the objects he walks around. Something you couldn't do with MGS4 or assassins creed because those are cutscenes. Also Halo 3 has almost another year on it so it will look much better.
That chick was'nt playing this on a 360 at E3 06' for no reason now was she? Please Don't be shocked Fanboys it was gonna happen.
Style and story help fuel the hype. But mostly AC's a tool to spite each other. lol you dont think it would be cool walking though a crowd looking for somebody to knife under the radar?.
Yeah the 360 is a great machine.
This story does not seem very credible. Last I heard Creed was a PS3 first launch with 360 following at least a few months behind. . .
First I saw was AC on the X05 on a 360 in Amsterdam. Sony just paid some money to keep Ubisofts mouth shut
no. the first anyone had ever heard of Project Assassins was in a demo-reel for PS3 games at TGS 2005. it was later part of the same type of demo-reel for the 360 at X05. since then it sort of went into hiatus until just prior to E3 06, where it was announced as a PS3 (only) game. it is easily within the realm of plausibility that Ubisoft scrapped the game for the 360, but thats highly unlikely. like lawman said, it'll will appear on the PS3 first, and probably the 360 at some point later.
i will be enjoying this game! :D
its not a question of is creed being released on 360, it's more a question of, can ubi afford not to?
What the hell are you talking about Halo 3 looked awesome. Halo's graphics look better than ghost recon as far as im concerened and furthermore Graphics dont make the game. Its the gameplay and Halo's Gameplay is what made it xbox's Killer app Its just a huge bonus that the graphics have finnaly caught up the gameplay much like what Adam sessler said.
lol! this is pathetic. i'll be the first to admit that i BELIEVE the game will come to the 360 AFTER the PS3 version, but thats just my belief. as of right now Ubisoft is obstinate that it is ONLY for the PS3. until they say otherwise i'll just have to take them for their word (wishful thinking or no), and i'll take all else (including a preview build from an XBox site/mag.) as heresay...ya know, like gamespot.com saying that Bioshock and Oblivion are PS3 bound is heresay. in any event i'll be getting Assassins Creed for my PS3, simply because it'll be out first, and because i BELIEVE that it'll have the better graphics. to all the 360 fanboys above: i find it curious that all of a sudden you're drooling for the game now that some XBox site has fanned the flames of rumor. if you thought the game was cool you should've just been a true gamer and admitted it, not slam the PS3 version then turn around and praise the 360 version.
But your "WRONG", The XBOX 360 will have better graphics and smoother game play. It's been present in all titles so far, especially the graphically demanding titles. Something like sonic the H. could be the same but a title like AC, no way. The bottleneck 3 can't even play it as of now. Remember E3, it was all XBOX 360, no ps3. At All, Any Where !
shut the hell up jr.! are you STILL soaking up that rumor? let me pose two questions to you: why would Microsoft endource Sony by allowing Ubisoft to show Assassins Creed as a PS3 game rendered on a hidden 360? further more, IF Microsoft DID allow Ubisoft to use a 360 to render Assassins Creed, don't you think there'd be some sort of agreement between the two that Ubisoft announced the game for the 360 also, instead of just the PS3? websites post rumors and one-dimensional thinking fanboys soak it up. this is terribly pathetic and hopelessly sad.
You've got a pretty good point there. It does make perfect sense.
UBISOFT DOES NOT PUBLISH EXCLUSIVE TITLES! We all knew this. I am not a PS3 fan but it looks like it is really a PS3 timed exclusive for the launch window of the system. XBox gamers can not even count on one hand the timed exclusives the XBOX and 360 were given by UBI. I have no problem with the PS3 getting thrown a bone.
Ever heard of Far Cry Instincts and Evolution? Those were both console exclusive until they put them both on the same disc for the 360.
Until the ps3 has final specs, which means until they work out the bottlenecking issues, you wont see a ps3 version being played as there wont be a playable ps3 as of yet. The versions we've seen have been XBOX 360 from the start, ubi decided since there may not even be a ps3 or atleast a ps3 version then they better start advertising the XBOX 360's release. Which by the way, I'll bet is finished 90%. The 07 date is them trying to give sony time to fix it's broken ps3. From what I've seen, I see a little "thief III deadly shadows" in the mix. Which btw was my fav original XBOX game. I'm really looking forward to this release. Sorry lil sony boy's, but I dont think you'll ever see it.
because I'll eventually get both consoles (the 360 first then the PS3 when the price drops)and whichever one it comes out for I'll buy it for that system. SIMPLE AS THAT.
It wont show proof of squat if this confirmation is true this pic of Assassins Creed is from the Playstation 3 not even an Xbox 360 pic show us proof or shut up those are just letters and paragraphes show us the real thing before you make up such bogus balonie like that !crap!
