There are sellers on eBay claiming that you gave them these posters and that you and a few devs signed several of these posters. Please confirm or deny as soon as possible. They may be taking advantage of fans who don't know any better.

Just to be clear: my question to Gabe is if these posters were given out and did he sign three of these posters?

There are several things I'd like to point out:

1. The first poster they sold had bigger white margins on the sidesand doesn't match the pics they have.
2. Each autograph are signed in nearly the exact same spot when you compare the posters.
3. The picture on poster is stretched (out of proportion).
4. The background behind Ezio looks different from thr picture on Gameinformer's cover.
5. The seller says there are no logos printed on the poster. Only a sticker on the back that says "media use only. Copyright 2011 ubisoft entertainment".
6. The seller says that these posters were only given to media and vips but i asked someone who was part of the media at ibisoft conference and they said they never got one or see these given out.

That deffinately seems suspect. You should try PMing ComDevGabe or one of the forum managers if you don't get a reply.

In addition to what Blind2Society said, he also seems somewhat active on Twitter:

Thanks, I'll do that.

I also included link to the other poster they already sold. Notice that the white margins on this poster are bigger.

Also wanted to point out that I don't doubt that there was at least one poster like this signed by at least two of the devs. You can clearly see a picture of two devs signing a poster similar to this. I fear they may be creating fakes from the original.

Lastly, I am not trying to stall anyone who is interested in this eBay item.

Yea, the poster seems to have different margins than the one they show the Devs signing. It's a bit off.

EDIT: That stinks, they're both sold now.

Aw man, I thought he was just a fan...

The posters are just printouts, but the guy approached us after a stage demo at the Ubisoft booth and asked if we'd sign them, so Alex Amancio, Martin Schelling and I signed them.

And, yeah, those are photos of us signing the posters.

Sorry I didn't see this thread sooner or I would have replied right away.
