Amazon U.K. has revealed an updated cover for the Playstation 3 version of the upcoming multiplatform title, Assassin’s Creed III. The box art now includes a banner advertising the Playstation 3 exclusive contents in the open-world action-adventure game, which “includes 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay.”



I wonder what it will be?

PS3 version it is.

60...minutes...that is the slimmest non costume exclusive content I think I have ever heard of hahahahaha.
Its probably 2 buildings in the center of an otherwise empty plaza and by running around it 1000 times in your gameplay to win the game, it equals 60 minutes.

It'll probably end up being some kind of tomb (the platforming sections). They like to give those away for exclusives and they're never anything memorable.

The PS3 version running smoothly and without screen tearing is enough of a bonus for me after playing Revelations on PS3.

Brotherhoods PS3 exclusive mission was copernicus - it sucked.

Nothing to worry about it, although the way Ubi is slicing content up is getting irritating

How do they time it? It's going to end up as 10 minutes in practical play.

How long it takes to collect all the items on foot. I had AC2 and never finished it. I like open world games but this series can't grab me.

I'm waiting for the GOTY version anyway which will have the extra content from the "season pass" so I imagine this content will be included either way.

Is it possible that the Naval battle, or maybe that time period in the game, is exclusive? I can see that being no more than an hour.

They did show the Naval battle at the Sony Conference, but I'm sure that they would've shouted it to the rafters if that was a PS3 exclusive.

Also, I hope that really cool looking section is more than an hour of game play.

I'm more of a Sony guy than MS guy, but I hate this type of stuff.

I'm all for platform exclusives (I only really own a 360 for Halo and PGR) but multi-plats should have content parity.

Actual exclusives games are so rare now that platform makers just rely on getting exclusive content or timed DLC.

I really hate exclusive content. It's worse than exclusive games, some serious bullshit.

Will just be a couple of side quest missions that don't do anything much to the story.

yea but Copernicus mission was fun and an extra hour of playtime is fine with me. I can't wait to see the interaction between this and AC3L. Good times to be an AC fan and have a Vita/Ps3 combo.

That's how I feel about it.

I don't know how effective this stuff is, but it might be working. I'm considering the PS3 version now over the PC version. Of course the major reason is the delay but maybe all these factors combined get others as well.

I would MUCH rather have them have performance parity than content if choosing between them. But they are different machines entirely owned by different companies, it doesn't strike me as odd that they may want different content packages. Its pretty much mirrored in other industries the same way.

Think, someone mistakenly add an extra 0 after the 6.










Until next gen, PC version for me with any sandbox games.

How can they put a time on it? Unless it's an actual 60 minute timed scenario? Can I sue them for false advertising if I do it in 59 minutes? :p

Are you talking about a GOTY on the other systems or PS3? Cause seeing as they never bothered to port any of their other PS3 exclusive content, I doubt they'll bother doing it with this.

And yeah, I agree with BradleyLove. Even though I have a PS3 and will be buying AC3 on it (because fuck Ubi PC releases), I hate the exclusive or timed exclusive crap for multiplatform games. It still pisses me off that Tomb Raider Underworld's ending was 360 exclusive. Just shocking, which makes me happy that I never bought it at full price.

How in the hell is it worse than exclusive games? You still get to play it on 360.
Because you're not getting the full thing. At least with exclusives, you could always end up getting that system, or the game getting a port. With stuff like this, it's just hurting the game for the majority.

It does depend what the content is though, it could be real filler garbage.

I'm having a hard time getting into Revelations, I really hope the scenery change does more than just give us the same missions but with different time period characters.

I can't imagine it will be anything more than side quests unrelated to the main story.

Unless they pull a Mass Effect 3...
