Hey there AC fans!!! I literally LOVE this extraordinary series! I've played each game ATLEAST 3 times and am in my 4th playthrough of ACII on PS3 and AC1 on PC. I want to pre-order Assassin's Creed Revelations, but I do not know for what system I should get it for. I want to get it for my PS3 because I want to buy the whole AC collection on my PS3, but with all the framerate loss issues and screen tearing and etc, the PS3 version is completely inferior to the 360 version sadly. :'( But I don't want to lose hope, and wish to buy it on my PS3, mainly because my friends will also be getting it on PS3, but at the moment I know I can max out the game on my PC, just ilke I did Brotherhood with no where near as bad performance as the PS3 version. I am really picky on framerate, and I can literally FEEL the change in fps, therefore I want to ask anyone here, Ubisoft mostly, if you can enlighten me on if the PS3 version will atleast be locked at 30fps with NO frameloss, because I really don't want to spend money on something that will irritate me while I could've got the better version. PLEASE Ubisoft or anyone help me decide which version to pre-order, the PS3 version or the PC version, as I really want to get this game ASAP!!! Assassin's Creed is my addiction just as Harry Potter is.
Thanks for your time, please reply.

Framerate loss? Hmm, I never experienced that. Or at least I didn't really notice. The tearing really sucks though.
Anyways, you should be aware of that the PC version may get delayed again. All other AC games were. So... if you really care that much about the fps and the tearing, you should probably get the PC version. If you want to get it ASAP without the risk of it being delayed, get the PS3 version. You could also play multiplayer then with your friends ^.^ (if you play multiplayer at all).

MY suggestion is PC, as that is what I use and am one of those people who scoff at users of other hardware as they clearly must be inferior to me and my impeccable tastes in things to throw money at. Therefore, PC is the only option, otherwise you and everyone else must have eaten too much lead paint and asbestos muffins as a child.

But really, it depends on what your hardware is, if you post your PC specs we can help ya make hte decision better. Although if you can run ACB maxed, with AA and the highest resolution your monitor can support, to me atleast it is a no brainer to go for the PC version.

Thanks for the replys guyz! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Anyway, I checked out the E3 demo of ACR and found out that they were playing it on PS3. And although there were a few times where the framerate dropped, it wasn't as bad as AC2's framerate on the PS3. Also there were some screen tearing, but I guess it will get fixed by final release(hopefully). Anyway, my fears are gone on the PS3 version, and I will be getting that one since my friends will also get it and we can play multiplayer on it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

@MonsterJunkese if you don't see the performance issues in the PS3 version of the Assassin's Creed series...than you sir are completely blind. o_o

@daniel_gervide yes I'm forced to...my friends are all console freaks too..and cod fanboys. -_-.. anyway they only pirate games for pc...that and facebook. So yeh, I am gonna get the PS3 version, since the PC version might get delayed as usual and when it does come out it will be like $10 cheaper as all the PC games are.

booo, go for PC. if you cave then your just giving developers less incentive to develop quality products for the PC. maybe.

Yeah, I realize what you mean there, I hate when ****ty ports of games are made to the PC..but I'm hoping Battlefield 3 will show all developers that quality products on the PC do make profit. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

even though its off topic, ive seen some stuff regarding the PCs they've tested in the Alpha, and apprently a 460 they were using in a test rig was running the game very well.

but back on topic, none of the ACs ever really seemed sub par, except for the locked aspect ratio.
