I am a bit confused by UPlay. Does it come with AC2 tomorrow or must we download it off Playstation Store or Xbox Marketplace?

Uplay is on both PS3 and Xbox 360.

Just signed up for UPlay. Doesn't seem to be much right now. It all just says coming soon. And to answer the question it's accessible through the game. The bummer is that when you exit it exits your game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

there is nothing in the ps3 version of the game that lets up log into this uplay thing nothing under extras or downloadable content. there is no way to link your console so that it knows what you have accomplished so maybe this is something they are going to add maybe after thurs with the weekly download stuff

Just been prodded by ms_kleaneasy!

To link up your Uplay account you need to go to the main game menu (when the game starts up), press Y/triangle to enter the Uplay menu.

Once in the main Uplay area, go to "account" and submit the email and password you use with your Ubi.com account and it'll link up. Your XBox/PS3 will sync with your Uplay account.

If you visit www.uplay.com (http://www.uplay.com) and log in with your ubi.com details you can edit your account setting and see what Uplay has to offer.

this does look like a cool feature, but i do have one question.
Do we have to be online when we get the trophy/achievement to get the points, or can we log on after and claim the points that way? as i have no wireless connectivity, and i have to carry my consoles downstairs and plug them into my modem if i want to go on marketplace or PSN

You will need to connect your console to redeem your U points but you can do that occasionally. Your gaming profile will store the number of points you have won but you will need to connect online to spend them - it works in a similar way to gamerscore/trophies.

So Uplay works for both platform, and even better Uplay works cross platform!

It means that if you unlock points on a PC game like R.U.S.E, they will be added to your account and you will be able to spend them on AC2 Xbox or PS3! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yes there is a message that appears when you unlock Uplay points.

Uplay is already in the game, no need to DL anything, and it's in BETA stage now. More functionality will come soon.

I've unlocked and spend points to redeem an exclusive XBL Theme, so it works http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

No Uplay is a new service plus a software that has to be integrated in our game, but we also have to come with unlock-able and download-able content to redeem, Help video etc...

It's a lot of work for each project and the first Uplay enabled game is AC2, next game will be Splinter Cell and R.U.S.E and after that almost every Ubisoft Game.

The Units get automatically deposited in your Uplay (Ubi) account. You can track your progress and look at available rewards on www.uplay.com (http://www.uplay.com).

Rewards/upgrades are available through the in-game Uplay menu which is accessible from the main menu of the game by pressing Y (360) or Triangle (PS3).

Cool?

And the theme is also 10 Units, so, I'm sorry, I still don't know how to unlock the unlockables :P

EDIT: Because you cán collect units, right? And spend them altogether on something for eg PC, even if u unlocked the points on a PS3.

No you're quite right you can collect points on any game in any platform and then spend them on any game on any platform.

For those who don't know, you earn 10 free Uplay Units the first time you log into Uplay on your console (PS3 & XBox360), but you can also get another 10 free Uplay Units just by logging into the www.uplay.com (http://www.uplay.com) website.

To link up your Uplay account you need to go to the main game menu (when the game starts up), press Y/triangle to enter the Uplay menu.

Once in the main Uplay area, go to "account" and submit the email and password you use with your Ubi.com account and it'll link up. Your XBox/PS3 will sync with your Uplay account.

If you visit www.uplay.com (http://www.uplay.com) and log in with your ubi.com details you can edit your account setting and see what Uplay has to offer.

This is not actually true. If you go to account section of Uplay, as accessed through Assassin's Creed 2, it asks you to put in a NEW e-mail address and password. If you try to put in an existing one (like, the one you use for your PC Uplay account) it will say that e-mail address is already in use. So I tried changing it to something else, and it kept saying there was a problem, and it bumped me out of Uplay.

The issue I'm having is Assassin's Creed 2/Uplay somehow already had my e-mail address... and it's outdated. I don't even have access to that account anymore. So I'm earning the rewards, but the account information is all messed up. I want to change it, but have no idea how or where.

Please bear in mind UPlay is in beta so some issues are inevitable. I have passed on this issue, not only the download problems due to server issues but the problem being unable to re-download after the system thinks you already have.

You need to connect so you can tie your gamertag to your ubi account, but then you can play offline and just connect once in a while to update your account and redeem rewards.

It basically offers you the chance to earn something against those achievements you've unlocked
