Ubisoft has announced that free additional DLC for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will be made available exclusively on PS3 in time for the game's release day.
Sony gets exclusive DLC and doesnt have to charge us for them to get it, great
Is this exclusive DLC or timed-exclusive DLC? If exclusive DLC, then thats great news for PS3 owners. A shame that 360 only owners can't experience it as well. I think whats going to happen is that it will be free for PS3 owners...but 360 only owner will have the opportunity to purchase it at a later date.
i think its timed but xbox will be getting it at a price and and pc its part of that deal sony did with ubisoft uno jack tretton keep banging on about content content content at e3 just gone when they mentioned exclusive deals with ea ubisoft and some one else
So this is coming out on release day and its free? Well then why not just add it on the disc?
They probably want the SKUs to be identical. Good news for everybody looking forward to the game. More content is always welcome, and if free the better.
Releasing it as dlc instead of on disk means it can be released as charged dlc on other platforms. It might end up being a code that unlocks content on the disk.
Stamping the disk and shipping it to all retailers take time (more than just shipping the DLC to PSN) -a developer :)
AC2 also has PS3 exclusive DLC - and we all know how that turned out. Weapons, jumping for joy!
"This additional content revolves around Renaissance astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (see what I did there?), who will have extra assignments for Ezio, including courier, assassination and protection missions. The missions are part of a storyline involving a conspiracy against Copernicus and his heliocentric philosophy, which was revolutionary at the time."
And it is REAL DLC Exclusive. Not timed.
Not really,you get it free but it not exclusive for ps3 user xbox will get it at same date,sony i s to poor to get it before xbox dose.....
you mean we get access to this for nothing? wonderful! don't tell Greenberg people, it's not complicated. it's just another way of getting people online
There is always a reason. Probably another inferior version.
Anyone remember Mafia 2 and Red Dead? We got exclusive content for both games, but they were inferior ports.
but we got ufc, batman, dantes inferno, nhl 11, medal of honor, dead space 2 which performed equal on both platforms so its exclusive not because it performed bad but probably something else
...Dead Space 2 doesn't even come out until January....try another lie.
But what he said isn't a lie either. The ps3 version comes with dead space extraction. Which the 360 version isn't getting
still getting this on the box,as i do with all multiplatforms.
mmm first ubisoft promised that the ps3 version will be on par of the xbox 360 version and now a free dlc for ps3 users...looks like the they still have problems with the ps3 version and the free dlc is a gift for the future angry ps3 users. @raztad just wait for the xbox 360 version ACII was much better on xbox 360 and the use the same engine...so?
No, I really don't think so. It uses the exact same engine as ACII and that ran fine for me at least. Plus, Sony did mention that they have a deal with ubisoft.
FYI tatto. There was a beta for PS+ users. If such problems existed we would have known by know. I played a little bit of it. Interesting take on multiplayer. Graphics are ok. Nothing to write home.
@raz Was there any screentearing in that demo? I noticed alot in the e3 demo.
Another sore sphincter. Beat it tato. Stay on your own console threads dbag.
Since when does Ubisoft have to rely on useless exclusive DLC for the big franchise that Assassin's Creed is? Either you give it to everyone (but Microsoft wouldn't accept it being free), or you don't give it at all, or, oh wait... ...put it on the disc? Release day? What the hell? The point of Downloadable Content is to create content AFTER the game is done?
Nice, more incentive to buy this game. I've never fully played AC1 and 2 so this will be my first AC. Getting this day one. MP will be fun with my mates.
you'd probably at least play AC2 because the story MIGHT be really confusing if you don't know the how and the why both in the past and present
A bit odd, but it's free. Can't complain I guess.
After playing Assassin's Creed 2, omg this is a simple yes for me I am totally getting this game Ezio Auditore da Firenze is a total badass
yay more quicktime events disguised as sandbox "gamplay"! i wonder if they will release a jump button DLC
why do people have to bitch about downloading something? is it so hard to go in to the store and select download? gahh ppl these days
This is right. I mean some DLC is worth the cost. But when you think about Tiger Woods. I mean 5.99 for two golf courses? That were in previous versions of the series? Its getting bad, and its only going to get worse. Soon your going to have to pay for half of the game, and to see the ending you have to pay again. Thanks Bobby
Now this is how DLC should be done!
Sony does this alot when they offer exclusive DLC for third party games it usually always free. Red Dead, Mafia 2, Metal of Honor(extra full game), Mirror's Edge, Assassins Creed 2, Batman: AA, etc. Sony has been doing it right for awhile now. I wish Microsoft would learn not everything has to have a price tag.
Ubisoft has stated that the PS3 version will be equal to 360 version
it's just to bad people are so blind. BLIND CONSUMERISM! *Cough* after I just bought 3 cds whose bands i barely know *cough* but seriously this sh!t should be ON THE F!CKING DISC! Why are they even talking about DLC when the game hasn't even released yet? DLC is getting rediculous.
- Sony posting a loss on every PS3 sold: "We don't believe in paying for DLC". - Sony supposedly making profit on every PS3 sold: "Content, content, content". I love it, Sony make hypocrisy look so classy :D Seriously though, it makes the choice of which version to buy easier for multi-console owners. If I was buying Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, I'd buy it for PS3.
So we're paying nothing, for exclusive DLC that will never see the light on another system. But Microsoft is charging Xbox 360 users hiked prices to pay for map packs that only get delayed on competing systems for a month. The industry is becoming a joke.
finally ps3 gets something good :) .. u xbox360 fans gets alots of DLC's early ...... so for once accept it ! and why u people still compare the same game ? .. how stupid is that ?! .. it's the same game , no diffrent things .. just get over it guys , stop acting like apes !!! ..
This is bad no matter how you look at it. Again gamers are having a piece of their game dangled in their face that should have been included on the disc to begin with. I'm sorry that consoles can download things now, because it gives the game makers the ability to screw us even further out of stuff that should be included with our games- no matter what system you are on!
