It was an MS employee so he could've just said it to hurt the game being PS3 timed exclusive. Fro timed exclusive you arent suppose to announce the other platform ports till after the exclusive deal runs out.
Okay. Well you were just missing words or adding works or.. on crack when you did that last one.

No, it's true. Multiple people saw the 360 when seeing the demo, and it was a joke going around E3.

Haha. I'd like to see UBI telling this to Sony.

UBI: We'll have Assasin's creed demo for E3.
Sony: Yay \o/
UBI: There's just one small problem.
Sony: Oh, what?
UBI: It runs on X360.

:lol :lol oh man, how did the saying go...

When it rains, it poors.

This just isn't Sony's E3.

EDIT: just read the PC-thing above, but doesn't change the fact it's a sucky E3 for Sony.

Hey.

Tal from IGN says that they confirmed with Ubisoft that the game is running on a PC emulating a PS3. The story's been corrected.

Actually, I don't think Ubisoft could make them take it down unless they were under and NDA or something of that nature. That, or it's false.

I'll love to see how this turns out.
No, they can "make" IGN take it down because IGN is not a source of JOURNALISM.

If they were journalists, they'd expose it. Freedom of the press and all that. But they're not, and they require perks from Ubisoft to sustain their model, which means Ubi got pissed and they took it off in response.

"made" as in "threatened to have toys revoked" not "threatened to be sued"

Ubisoft probably called IGN's marketing department and complained, who then ran up to the IGN warroom at E3 in a panic "Ubisoft will pull all ads if we don't remove that story about their deception on the floor!" And thus it was pulled. It's how things work.

Oh snap! Sony OWNZ0RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD once more at E3!

Recall that the 360 runs a Microsoft OS, which is the operating definition of a "PC" in market speak.

So yeah, it was a PC. A 360 PC.

You guys are crazy. Why is it impossible Ubisoft was making this for 360 and then switched platforms for a deal with Sony? PROTECT THE HIVE or something...

Emulating? I doubt the PC was emulating anything - all they did was use the PS2-like joystick for PC, I'm sure. In other words, it was just running the PC version.

I believe it will defintely be released on the 360. Ubisoft other games have all been released multiplaform...why stop now? If you check ubisoft web site and check the wording in the press release you will notice the absents of the word "exclusivie", except when writing about Red Steel and the publishing rights to Enchanted Arms. Assasin creed is only introduced as a "New Video Game Franchise" and being developed on PS3, but not exclusively.

350 version Guaranteed!

Ask your buddy Tal from IGN what kind of PC it takes to emulate a PS3. I'm curious what Intel/AMD CPU is powerful enough to run an OS and simulate CELL, cause I want to buy one.

By "PC" they mean one of these with a third party PS2 controller using a PS2-USB converter:
Well, I guess the genie is out of the bottle. It doesn't matter which one is true (and I believe Manabyte) as the perception and expectation is that the 360 version is coming as soon as the exclusivity is over.

Microsoft must be a bit pissed and thought they'd get a little dig in, because the previews have been absolutely glowing and it's running on the 360 and Sony comes in and buys it away from them.

On the plus side, those who used this game as a reason for Sony's power advantage over the 360 (although, only media got to actually see gameplay) are smarting right about now.

Wasn't this game going to be on the PC too according to the leaked Ubi list? Most likely they are just showing the current best version, but because of sweet Sony money they pretend it's the PS3.

Thing is, if this is the PS3 version why not show it on a PS3 dev kit like EVERY OTHER 1st/3rd party developer at E3?

Something doesn't add up.

Who is taking shots? IGN reported it and manabyte basically confirmed it. Its not like people were just making shit up.

I'm 100% certain it will come to the PC, as well. I'm just making fun of the Ubisoft damage control.

"A PC... emulating the PS3! Yeah, that's the ticket!"

We know for a fact that it's not running on a PS3, even thought it's operating under the guise that it is.

Something is afoot and this should be discussed. Are you simply advocating that this means nothing?

If it's true it's probable that development started on 360 and only recently Sony has gained the timed exclusive so Ubi brought at E3 the most advanced version they have at the moment.
Kinda shows as market works :D


The PC emulating PS3 is just retarted.

Doesn't change the fact that it was NOT running on a PS3, which is curious in itself.

I didn't mean that it's the PS3 version. I meant that it's the version that runs and looks best at this moment (PC or X360). Ubi is just playing along with Sony and saying it's the PS3 version because of whatever contract they have made.

It's not curious if the exclusive agreement with Sony has been made recently and the most advanced version Ubi has is not the PS3 one.
Of course they want to have the best possible impressions for their game.

They probably should know, and don't care because they get first dibs.
