Glad I always buy the AC games for the PS3, this looks like good fun.

I was just reading an article about historical figures not in the game and Benedict Arnold was mentioned as an omission, but apparently that is just for the main game.

I Think this is complete bs to be honest. How are these missions not adding to the story? They seem like they are definitely part of the story. I wouldn't care if ps3 got exclusive items or missions like the tomb puzzles but really?

Pc players get screwed by Ubisoft every year but we still have to deal with console exclusive bs. I hope at least the missions are sold as dlc. Inb4 fanboys flame me I would like to state that I would be equally upset if the exclusives were on 360 or pc. I think all gamers should stand against this kind of stuff because its us that it hurts in the end.

none of us here are console fanboys and most of us agree with you. but a lot of people out their are console fanboys and they would prefer to have more than Xbox rather than both having the missions as well

Agreed, but they won't be sold. And PC players aren't the only ones getting screwd by this every year. They'll be just like Copernicus, and will stay exclusive, until Ubisoft figures out that there actually is a difference between exclusive and early release, and realizes that "early release" actually gets them more money and happier fans.

I'm sorry, your spelling is a little off. Are you saying it makes sense the content is PS3 exclusive because of AC Liberation being on the Vita? I don't think it necessarily makes sense considering the Assassin's Creed series is a multi-platform game and as far as I know, I don't think these missions relate to Liberation (though please correct me if I'm wrong.) Exclusive platform content makes no sense. I can more or less understand where you're coming from with this though, but it's just not right.

I know :) but in the video Connor killed a man with a blue coat which I know we have seen but it's still nice to see that the game won't just be red vs blue :P I meant no harm :(

Also I didn't realise Aveline turned up in this, probably means that it won't turn up on anything else then, out of curiosity how many non ps3 owners own a vita?

It appears to me in this trailer that Ubisoft forgot to consult its historian on the name of the place as it wasn't called "West Point" during this time it was called FORT ARNOLD which it would still be called if it wasn't for the betrayal of Benedict Arnold

Console exclusive content is disgusting. It does nothing but single out and piss off fans. It's not so much that I'll be missing out on the Benedict Arnold stuff, but the practice of making certain content exclusive that ticks me off. Essentially, a lot of gamers won't be able to experience the entire game because of some cheap business ploy on Sony's side. At least as a compromise, Xbox owners could've been given their own exclusive content separate from the PS3, but no. I hope it becomes available to Xbox owners eventually.

Yes, I definitely would complain. Content should not be intentionally exclusive to certain consumers. The game in its entirety should be available to everyone at launch, despite what console they play it on. I don't see how anyone could endorse this content-splitting practice.

Yeah, spending months, years creating awesome content and asking for money, how dare they? What horrible people Ubisoft are, asking for financial reward for hours upon hours of talented, hardworking artists, computer designers and game developers and producers. How dare they issue "exclusive" content to a particular games console that most likely gives them funding and support to produce these amazing games and only asks for additional content in return, to help fund more and more games for us, the consumer.

What a horrible arrangement this whole thing is for us, the consumer, to have choice in what we do and don't spend and what gaming system we do or do not purchase... and how dare we be asked to support a company that has given us a game, a franchise and characters we adore.

It's not like you can go outside and just buy a Playstation or Vita is it? I mean, that's like... impossible...

I think platform exclusives are as much of an abomination as the Ubisoft always-on DRM requirement was for some PC games. Thankfully, Ubisoft have now seen the light with regard to that little drama and have done away with it - and I truly hope they do away with platform-exclusive content as well as it only ever ends up screwing the consumers over.

That said, I strongly suspect the DRM regime was the work of Executive types whose thoughts mostly center on profit, and not the designers and engineers, the awesomely creative dudes who make great games like the Assassins Creed series .. No doubt the 'platform exclusives' idea came from Executive-Land also, because it makes no actual sense.

Speaking personally, I own a PS3, a 360 and a PC but I prefer to buy titles for the 360 as Sony's treatment of its consumers continues to disgust me.

Ubisoft, please don't punish us for exercising our freedom of choice regarding the platform we play your games on. It'll only backfire.

Because Assassins Creed games always sell more on the Xbox even with the PS3 having exclusive content

To be fair the figures are fairly even

Xbox worldwide sales of Revelations: 3.72m
PS3 worldwide sales of Revelations: 3.69m

Its not making much of a difference then because most AC games have PS3 exclusive content and it doesn't bump up their sales nobody is going to buy the game just because it has exclusive content its designed for people with multiple consoles and their strategy is not working

Your argument makes absolutely no sense. Of COURSE people buy a particular console because of this sort of exclusive content. Why do you think they do it in the first place? It's the exact reason I chose Playstation over Xbox eons ago when I purchased mine. Better exclusives across multiple games that I enjoy. Case closed No point in blaming UbiSoft for it, that's like shouting at the Postman because your friend wrote a letter to you and typed it ALL IN CAPS.. Don't like the way business is done, fine. But that's the way of the world. Either make peace with it or buy a PlayStation!! Choice is yours.

...I'm sure there's benefits to being an Xbox owner as well, Halo if that's your bag... I'm not going to blame a GAME STUDIO for doing business with a CONSOLE COMPANY who gives them money to finance the very games we love in the first place. That's asinine at worst, naive at best.

Im not talking about consoles i am talking about versions of a single game so far AC3 is not going to sell more on the PS3. Here is the pre-orders for the US alone http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/41203/USA/

You can't really go by pre-orders though, there are lots of people who don't pre-order.

But if its anything like the pre-orders then more people will also buy it for the 360 their is no evidence to suggest that PS3 owners pre-order less than 360 owners

But historical evidence show sales of the AC franchise between the 2 consoles are very close. Xbox doesn't have a huge lead.

Ok then they both have very large fanbases for AC3 so why alienate one large group to favour another? if Ubi needs to make exclusive deals to finance their games with console makers then they are doing it wrong

Okay, so let me explain this to you.

Once upon a time a company called "'Sony" came to Ubisoft and said "Hello, We would like something exclusive to our platform, We will pay you this much (insert amount here)" Ubisoft replied "Fair Enough" and the rest is history, I own both platforms and i plan on getting it on xbox, I'm not the slightest mad at Ubisoft and Sony for making a business agreement, because i have an understanding of how business works.

To be honest, they don't do it to finance the game. Sony in a way commission Ubisoft to make extra content for their system. Its not Ubisoft saying to PS3 give us more money and we will gie you something special.
Sony do this to bring in the drifters and reward the faithful. I have 2 friends who own both xbox and PS3 and want AC3 and were undecided to get it on which console, but because of the extra content they opted to pre-order the PS3 version. This gives Sony 2 more sales, therefore there commission is justified.
Blame PS3, not Ubisoft.

If Microsoft wanted their own exclusive hour of content, they would have contacted ubisoft, and paid for it.

Depends on how much money'd they get out of it. What Microsoft would be willing to offer could simply not have been a good enough offer.

If this continues the mods will lock this thread for a console war. So let it go. Both consoles are great in there own way. Also both company's money had a chance and xbox's didn't pan out. Xbox has had exclusive deals over multi- platform games, most resent is RE6.

True, but you have to remember, microsoft is a very wealthy company, if they really wanted exclusive content, they would have gotten it.

All of you people fanboying over their console cannot be reasoned with. Eventually this thread comes down to the same arguments of fanboys. In the end you guys don't realize that its exactly what the corporations want, they blind you like this and then fight each other.


The consumer is the one getting screwed in this deal no one else. I guess I was dumb to think that there was any hope of getting this exclusive stuff overturned. Unfortunately it will continue because the community cannot get their head out of their asses.

No one is getting screwed, it was a business deal. It happens with all consoles. And watch what you say about this community.

I am talking about the people who engage in fanboy wars over and over on the forums and real life, because of them nothing gets done. If we had enough backing in the community and outrage over this we could have gotten ubisoft to change their minds similar to how DICE made certain weapons only early access in BF3 after the community got upset.

I think efforts are futile tho.

Can you buy that CoD content on the PS3? Oh wait, you can. Guess it's not exclusive then, huh?
