View Full Version : PS3 HDD Download?

Hi,
I was wondering if the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed would support that HDD download feature to eliminate/reduce loading times on the game. I don't see why they could not include it, it seems like a trivial low-maintenance feature to implement and it would greatly benefit PS3 owners. Every PS3 has a standard HDD so why not? If there are any reisdent AC Devs that could inform me, it would be much appreciated.

I think AC is a free roaming game, so it won't be necessary

That's not fair, why do you get to ask them questions?

There will either be say 1 major loading screen a the beggining or 4 in total (one for each city and one for country side) THIS IS A THEORY DONT QUOTE ME ON IT! Also I highly doubt there will be anything like Oblivion (its not exactly a screen but its still loading and stopping the game for a sec)

DevilWillcry65, bumping is not allowed in these forums.
Please don't bump threads again, regardless of the motive - thanks.

I am confused. Isn't what I am typing now considered bumping? He, feasibly, could have just posted "HDD is l337" which would've bumped the post but not been labeled a bump? Weird...

If the sole purpose of a post made in a thread is to bring the thread back on the top of the first page of the forums, without adding anything new or relevant by replying on topic, that is considered bumping, which is what that post's purpose was. Any post that enters in that category is considered a bumping attempt -whether the word "bump" is used or not.
I hope this clears things up.

There wont be a playable demo because it would have to inclde a whole 9th of the game (each unspecified level involves killing one of nine ringleaders) And that would be a very large download. it is impossible.

I actually thought the Ninja Gaiden Sigma demo was the longest demo I've ever played...

Yea that demo kicked but (are we allowed to swear?) but I think the biggest demo ive played is resistance fall of man to fairly big levels.
for an FPS

Not necessarily, it could be an assassination that doesn't have anything to do with the game. Maybe the assassination before Altair lost his rank? I'd dig playin some assassination missions even if they aren't in the actual game.

E-Rated forum so keep the swearing to an almost non-existant level. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Longest demo i've ever played was probably Saints Row. Which granted wasn't a ridiculously long demo but I haven't played many demos. When a game comes out that I really want though I'm over that demo like Jack Thompson on a lawsuit about videogames.

I hate jack thompson's a- oh forgot... E-raaaated. I will resist swearing as there are many young 14 year olds out there. I think that they wont make a demo but it would be nice for some exlcusive vids.

Well the demo (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/727/727964p1.html) was confirmed, the big question is when we'll get it though.

Im not sure it will happen becuase there is only 2 months and 29 days left until launch. I know it might seem that I might not want a demo but I do want a demo I just dont see how...

EDIT: I respect your E-rated forum wishes but its funny how this is a "Mature" game....
I will not cross the line.

Actually it's five months 'till launch, the game is coming out in November.

Good point about the mature rating, but hey I don't make the rules o_O. Heck I don't even enforce 'em.

Hassan-Sabaa, all Ubisoft forums are E-rated, regardless of how each particular game is rated.
Please take a look at this part of the rules thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/5991081444#II), that refers to this fact.

"the company does intend to release a demo for the game before its scheduled March 2007 release."

lol...your articles a bit old so who knows if they even will release a public demo

"upcoming PlayStation 3-exclusive" bit behind arent they? Also there will be a demo, personally I cant think of a single decent game that DIDNT have a demo before release.

I shure do hope there will be a playable demo to download at PSstore and xbox live. I also hope that there will be an oportunity to use the psn to compare achievements with friends etc. but sadly I've only heard Jade Raymond mention xbox live.

Despite it's age the point still stands that they intend to make a demo.

are you talking about trophies on Playstation Home? Because I think Acheivments are XBL's thing. It would be cool if they implemented Home trophies..... but I think Jade already said it was too late and the development cycle to implement them, but you never know, maybe they will implement Home trophies if the Assassins's Creed team doesn't see it as too much trouble and it is not too time consuming. I guess it all depends on how easy/long it wil take to implement them.
