With the delay of the game AC will now face stiffer competition for Game of the Year, with titles like Resident Evil 5 on the horizon. Discuss.

No way, indeed I think it will benefit the game. If you have more time, you have a bigger chance of winning. With time you make the graphics better, the story..etc. And the most important thing there will be no rush...

I DONT THINK IS GONNA HURT IT, BUT IT WONT BE THE # 1 GAME, REMEMBER THAT WE HAVE MGS4, RE4, DMC4 ETC, COMING OUT ON 2007. I STILL THINK THE GAME IS GONNA ME GREAT, BUT, BY THE END OF NEXT YEAR THERE'S GONNA BE A LOT OF GREAT GAMES AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif

No doubt it won't suffer from this delay.

There obviously great games coming out at the end of the fiscal year but none is like this game on many aspect: AI, freedom, plot and the wonderful graphics.

This game will make the others blush of jealousy... DMC4 is a title I can't wait to see but the animation are poor and sooooo current-gen. MGS4 is a solid game coming out, no doubt. RS4 is also one great game but nothing revolutionnary in it, everyone is used to the type of gameplay it as to offer and they better come with something drasticly different to surprise us on the plot. GTA is sooo GTA, nothing new graphicly, they don't seem to exploit the horsepower of the new consoles, at least graphicly... At least there is Phil Collins in it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Great games are coming out at that time but only one Assassin's creed. No direct competition in my opinion, what might help AC becoming the game of the year.

Okay... I'm a little sold to this game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Good topic tough! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

For two reasons:

1) It gives more time for the developers to work on the game and polish it to the max.

2) Since this game is one of the most anticapated games of 2007 it will most likely bring in a lot of money from sales. Ubisoft is taking advantage of this by delaying it and strengthing their next fiscal year.

Although I have heard some people saying Ubisoft only cares about money by doing this, I strongly disagree. By delaying it the developers will have more time to work on the game and fix any problems it may have.

And I agree with JN006. While the games mentioned will be great, they won't deliver anything totaly new since they all have all been done before. Assassin's Creed is bringing action/adventure games to a whole knew level, and I remember before it was announced for Xbox360 and PC people were going to buy a PS3 just for AC. Only a few other games have been system sellers (Super Mario Bros., Super Mario 64, Halo, etc.) and this game would have definatly been a system seller had it only been for the PS3.

Well...it's coming out the same year, isn't it?

Personally, it'll better my chances of buying and playing it. God of War II, Resistance: Fall of Man and Heavenly Sword should keep me well tided over 'til then. I was worring I wouldn't have enough time to play some games.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Buy The Game Or Die. Also get Heavenly Sword - Nariko could kick Prince's ***.

How can a delay hurt the chances of game of the year? All games released that year count, not the ones that get released earlier than the others. (like OH_Dragonboy said)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
