First of all: interview on ubi sites (with jade raymond). link (http://events.us.ubi.com/)

One of the questions is what's the link between Desmond - Ezio - Alta´r, what they answer(quote out of video):
"We've made the link and really explained that whole backstory in the PSP game. So we're making the PSP game which contineous Alta´rs adventures and in it you'll understand the link that happens in AC2 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC version."


I think that that's just stupid. Why should we have to by 2 games (or even a PSP) to know the link between characters (ancestors...) and what happend to Alta´r...

So what's your reaction on this?


-BTW, at the end of the trailer, you see in the background another awesome attack with the spear.-

It's not stupid.

And you don't gotta buy a PSP or the game. There's a thing called the Internet, you see. Look for a website that gives you a summary of the whole plot in a game (i.e Wikiepedia) and BAM! You take the easy way out, not needing to buy or rent the game and you know exactly what happens.

That's what I did with Altair Chronicles. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

I'm talking about the fact that they want to get extra money (that's what they want, not including the internet!). I indeed thought of the internet, but why can't we just know it?

@ ikke: Ubisoft is not necessarily aiming for more money. They just want to expand the franchise in every way possible (sadly nothing for the Wii and the novels were cancelled). Sure, it might contain some background between the three main characters of Ezio, Altair, and Desmond, but it shouldn't be vital to get the plot in AC2, as the DS game wasn't that important to understand AC. Perhaps AC2 will have a snippet of information that'll reveal the connection between these three guys. If not, tough noogies. You gotta buy the PSP game if you want to know every little detail about the AC universe. But those are for the die-hard fans. lol

But like I said before, Bloodlines shouldn't be too important. You're basically purchasing AC on the go with extra weapons for the PS3.

Uh, of COURSE they're aiming for more money. They're a company. The very first thing for them is to make money. And it's not a bad thing, at all.

Yeah, but there's more to it than money. &gt;_&lt; BLARGH. I can never explain myself very well.

Its not always money...I'm sure for the higher ups it is but a lot of times its the director of the game wanting to spread his creative vision and story of the game.
If the only way they can side their story in there is a smaller budget PSP title I think thats a good thing.

Perhaps there is more to it. They might have thought about how to tell the "Bloodlines" story and make some profit with it.. OR they might have thought how to make some profit and then make up the "Bloodlines" thing.

Ahhh, didn't look at it that way. Nonetheless, it's no big deal if you can't play the PSP game unless you're an AC addict. :3

I am buying it. Haha just going to let everyone know because A.) Its another game, I'm not buying it just for the story, but also the gameplay. And B.) Not only am I an AC addict but I'm a sony addict as well. Did you know that AC1 was originally going to be for just PS3 and PC? But as moqqy pointed out they need to make money.

I read that you will also be able to transfer upgrades unlocked in the PSP, such as money etc.

I wonder if the 360/PC versions will have any extras?

hey, do you have a link to screenshots?

also, i think the ds version was developed by Gameloft (which Ubi owns), but not ubi montreal, but ubi published it obviously. I guess Gameloft will be developing the psp version. this is how they can make 2 new games simultaniously, because seperate developer groups..

I'm telling you,these are pretty decent graphics for a PSP game.I'm sure they're taking this seriously.(Ds version was **** up)
I'm getting this game cause I only got a PSP.

I guess we'll have to see what they do in the game. Untill then, we can't say or they do anything about the next generations things. I've seen that someone posted about something Alta´r wrote. These things give a link. Maby even what happend to Alta´r/the piece of eden. If they don't i'll always they could have just put it in the pc/PS3/xbox 360 game instead of a whole new game for which you need a PSP.
