Ubisoft sent us word that Assassin's Creed, the next-gen title that wowed everyone and their mother at this year's E3, is indeed coming to Xbox 360. The latest news confirms what has been rumored for so long and comes hot on the heels of news earlier this week that the game would be coming to the PC. Assassin's Creed on Xbox 360 will be released to coincide with the Playstation 3 version in the first quarter of 2007. The title is being developed by Ubisoft's Montreal team, the same group that has put out gems such as Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time


For those that haven't been following Assassin's Creed, we'll give a quick rundown of what you can expect. The game takes place in the year 1191 during the Third Crusade. The main character, Altair, is an assassin out to shape the course of history. Assassin's Creed is an action title with stealth elements, high flying acrobatics, and intense sword combat.

This looks pretty damn cool I have to say, even with that really strong PoP vibe going on. Hopefully the gameplay will match the awesome visuals.

It's funny how everyone on this board LOVES the PS3 and so many just laugh at the 360... But when I create a topic today that is positive about the PS3 and one of it's most promising games (Resistance: Fall Of Man) it has still not gotten one single response. I can't win either way! :confused:

Really!?
It seems like everyone on this board loves the Xbox 360 and hates the PS3.
Because it's too "expensive"!

And why does everyone hate the PS3 just for it's price?
It hasn't even been released yet!

This is a Tomb Raider forum. Most people got into that game via Playstation or PC. Therefore, most people here are fans of Playsation. Try posting anything about up and coming Xbox 360 games, and you will get very little reply. Most people here are Sony fans



And why does everyone hate the PS3 just for it's price?

Can you think of a better reason? Nobody hates Sony, some people are just a bit ****ed off at their arrogance, and the childish Sony fan boyness sometimes found on this forum. You don't believe me? Look at this very thread. This is a post UT made in good faith about it being a game for the Xbox 360. Some of us are interested in this, and no longer want to hear the MS v Sony battle. Do us a favor and stay on topic, or UT might just have to close it.

Well the argument goes both ways... we already know it's too expensive and because it hasn't been released yet it might not be as incredible as everyone keeps saying it is. If you look closely though, you can see that the PS3 is definately more loved than the 360 on here. They casually dismiss the 360 with things like "I can't wait for (insert game title here) it should be awesome with the power of the PS3!" It never matters if said game is also coming to the 360. It is just assumed as fact that the 360 is inferior and ALL games on it will be inferior once the PS3 arrives. I just don't think it's as simple as that. Either way I'll be covered though, because all have all 3 consoles! :D

ON TOPIC: Assassins Creed looks to be great on both systems. I really hope they can deliver the kind of gameplay they are promising. It would be a true revolution in gaming!

I reckone the reason a lot of people don't like the PS3 is because it has been delayed and it is more expensive.

THESE people are lying.

The PS3 back for example. Those aren't lies. That was the PROTOTYPE! The UNFINISHED version. And why show the back of the 20GB PS3 for comparision while the 60GB has more features, closer to the prototype?!?

And the PS home button is not a 360 ripoff. The 360's home button was a ripoff. Anyone remember PSP that was released before 360? THAT had a home button!!!

I could do this aaaaaaaall day!

The PSP home button doesn't have any of the features the 360 one has... if the PS3 emulates those features then Sony is copying MS on that one.

You can bring up the menu and change music, send messages, access xbox live and the like in mid-game; you can turn the console on/off; turn your controller on/off as well. It IS a natural--but new step for consoles. Oh, and it also tells you which controller you have (previously a problem with PS2 and Xbox wireless controllers) and the battery status. You have been educated!

Yes, in the 360 version you're an assassin, in the PS3 version you're a SUPER assassin! (Just kidding folks, just kidding...) ;)

Supposedly you have a freedom of movement and action never before seen in a video game, and everyone and everything is interactive in the manner it would be in real life. If a wall section looks climable you will have the chance to climb it--it won't be just for show. There was a lot more I've heard about it, but I can't remember it all.

It'll look just as good! But, if not, I may get it for the PS3 when I get my PS3. I always buy multi-platform games for the system that it's best on. Not just best graphics but other factors apply, like controls. I love the 360 controller, I'm not sure what I'll think of the PS3 controller--I'll have to see. All 360 games have achievements too, which I love. Then there's the online factor--will there be online play or downloads for both?

Although I think it's a close contest between 360 and PS3.

Thanks for posting UNDERTAKER! :tmb:

I think pretty much everyone, except the PS3 fanboys - they really wanted AC as a PS3 exclusive :p - knew that Assassin's Creed would eventually be announced as an Xbox 360 game :D

I looked at one of the trailers for this game and I have to say it's very violent, when you see a sword sticking through a guys chest, then peircing out his back - thats violent! :(

It kind of puts me off but I'll wait and see just how violent it's going to get before I decide to whether or not to buy this game.

Another thing though is the screenshots are alittle, erm.....GREY!!! :(
The game almost looks devoid of colour but I suppose that could just be those screens :confused:

Anyway thanks for posting, can't wait to see more of Assassin's Creed on Xbox 360!

I am really happy to see that AC is going to the 360. Exclusive games are just too an expensive a hit on the potential market. In teh days when the PS2 was the only major player you could do that, but now things are different.

Now if Crysis would not be a PC exclusive release and the Naughty Dog project would not be a PS3 exclusive I would be a happy gamer.
