Im sory if this post will cause contriversy between ps2 and xbox fans. but im just wondering y the release dates r spread apart so many months is the ps2 version going to be better or is it because of theset back of the first game that they might have started later???

Think of it this way, this release was INCREDIBLY buggy, devastating bugs. On the PC and the XBOX those bugs can be patched. They can't patch games on the PS2, so they have to iron out all the bugs BEFORE they ship the game, otherwise you'll be permanently stuck with bugs and glitches. That's why the release dates are set apart so far.

Not all Ps2 games can be patched even if everyone (and not many will) get the hardrive. The release date is due more to the Xbox being the orginal consoel it was released on and the limit of the system. They have to down scale it a bit on the ps2 and cube since the poly count and effects aren't handled the same and as easily. 3 months is hardly a hudge wait.

I have all three consoles and a PC, I just don't see buying it for the other consoles.

I think Arsonide hit the nail on the head. Good job. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It was with the first game as well. I guess Microsoft gave a chunk of money to Ubi for an exclusivity deal.
