I can't wait to see what commercial will be shown to promote AC on Televison. I hope it's a new video that we havent seen yet. Can't wait for that one.

I remember when Sands of Time was released, I was sitting in the metro and theres these "cheap" advertisements in french about the latest news, parties, and whatever, and I remember seeing this really small animation of sands of time on it and i was like "COOL!" lol, wonder if they're gonna do the same for assassins..

Although I really wouldn't be surprised if they do NO commercials at all since this game has already gone gold, I think pretty much everyone knows about it now.. Everyone that owns a PS3 or Xbox360 atleast..

I agree with you Zain, as far as the people that own the different systems, they all know about it or have heard of it, but i have talked to quite a few ppl aboiut this game and its the first time they have heard about it until I show them and then they get addicted. I know it would a great way to sell the game and the consoles. When Gears of War was advertising with the "mad world" commercials I went crazy and that was the reason I ended up with an XBOX 360. So it could be affective for them to have a comercial to sell more games an units atthe same time.

I saw a semi-ad for it today on FX (not FOX, but an affiliate). On Monday at 8PM, FX will be broadcasting the movie Hellboy, and they said there will be an inside look at Assassin's Creed during the movie.

There doesn't need to be a TV ad for it.
It's already generated plenty of noise on just about every gaming website that matters.

The people who need to know about it, know about it. It's pointless to advertise it to an audience that just won't care. It would be a waste of money to have a TV ad since it's not a "colloquial" name like Halo is.

if i were the man/woman (lol that came out wrong... you get my point...)

i would make a tease out of it...

let me explain, you put alittle of the best bits people liket in the full demo's or trailers... and then just stop when the avrege person is intreeged and put the AC logo on and the release date and web site for ferther information...

most people will take a look... and its easy to remember the sites address... after you look around for a bit (just like most people waiting for this game has...)

they will be into it, and the game will have a great head count (in sails that is...)


and because the ocmmercial will be short and the only thing that will take alittle bit or air time is the AC logo (that after a few months people will get it so they will shorten it for the logo alone...)

it will save money...



any way i hope they do the right thing...

they could just show the E306 trailer and end up with millions of fans, cos that was one of the best trailers of a game I've ever seen

Edit-stix, eyah I'm from Australia and when i pre-ordered I didnt get the box. Wait for launch day

Here in Colorado on FX they keep hyping it saying on Monday during Hellboy will be the AC Preview, and then Weds is the Black Hawk Down with a CoD4 promo.

Uhm not sure are you on Comcast Cable provider for your tv? if so just keep an eye out on Comcast.com at the tv listings or what not to see what times the movies are on, my best bet would be starting around 6-7pm Mountain time.
