HAHAHAHAAAA. I'm sorry, you can hate me for this. You propably will. But it's times like these (and many others) that I'm glad to be an Xbox 360 man.
So AC will most likely be playable for the 360 only for some time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif AAAh, sweet mother of mercy, that's a good-a news for-a mee-ah. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

No release date yet for AC so we don't know. Also it only affects PAL countries not US or Japan. Unfortunately I live in Ireland. Great country but seems to get the short end of the stick a lot.

And you'll have to do much more than that to make me hate you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

AC will get delayed to october or something anyway (at least), so there's no reason to be happy at all, MTX.

I've let out my steam on this on the GT and Heavenly Sword forums. The latter being the ONLY game still keeping me tethered to the PS franchise. I hate sony, I really do. But I like the Playstation. Not the company, but the console and its games.

I'm still going to get one, don't get me wrong on that, but I'm still just pissed as hell at this bullcrap.
But hey! At least the first games I play on it will be Heavenly Sword or Assassin's Creed.

But, in all:
Sony = Complacent bastards

Highly agree with Orlando. They shouldn't set a release date before they KNOW they have the first lot, but I'm sure they don't really give a damn. Does anyone know whether the PS3 is regionally locked?

I must say, however, that good will come out of this. Despite the delays, two things will happen:
1. A lot of the kinks of new tech will likely be ironed out by then.
2. A LOT more games to choose from.

Hm, I thought I read somewhere that the release would be around the first of january or something. Ah well, I live in Holland, so I'll still be able to stick it to my playstation owning friends http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

Hey guys,
Just for those who didn't know, I thought you's might like to know this: Yes, the PS3 will be delayed till March 2007 in Europe, and in all places other than North America and Japan. Sucks, aye?
To make matters worse, PS3 will only be shippinh a mere 400 thousand PS3 consoles in North America and 100 thousand in Japan.
Here's the link for those who so wish it:
www.actiontrip.com (http://www.actiontrip.com) (It may have not be on the main page be the time some of you read this.)


What Sony doesn't deny, however, is that they plan to allocate a mere 400,000 units for the North American and a minuscule 100,000 units for the Japanese market at launch.

????... huh, I don't understand. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif, I own a xbox 360, why would they want to stick it to me? With playstation owning friends, I meant my friends that owned the playstation 2 and that were going to buy the playstation 3.
I hope you understand now, cause that would make at least one of us. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

....j/k sorry guys. you could always buy a 360 and get it for that if the console ends up coming out after the game... however, this is an Ubisoft game, so AC will most likely get at least a 3 month delay if it's anything like their other 'big name' games...

Yeah, and I'll get Heavenly Sword, that Naughty Dog game and Resistance for it. In fact, I think I'll go the extra mile and use the backward compatability to upscale God of Wars I & II. When I've completed them ten times in HD, I'll buy the 3rd, which will likely be out then. But before that happens, I'll play GTA4 on BD.

Then I'll play Bullet Witch and Fable 2.
