I never thought I would be upset about anything with the Assassin's Creed series. Something i found out recently has caught me by surprise though. I've heard from several sources that Ubisoft will be releasing a multiplayer beta, and will implement extra single-player maps/missions for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, but only to people that own a Playstation 3, and are on the Playstation Network. This is honestly unfair to people with xbox 360's. Just because people sided with sony, they get maps that 360's dont, and they get to have the multiplayer beta before the game comes out? This is rediculous. Since most of the sales were to xbox 360 consoles for AC2, the 360 users should be considered a bit more loyal to the Assassins Creed series. I have purchased and loved both AC1 and 2, and I dont feel that it is right to "exclusively" give maps and a multiplayer beta to people owning PS3's. After all, from looking at the number of sales (according to sources), the PS3 community has not been as interested in the Assassin's Creed series as xbox 360. I feel that loyalty should be rewarded, not punished.

Anyway, that's just my opinion...hopefully I didn't offend anyone too much.

al though it is true, it's just a beta. They don't get it forever and they have to pre-order the game. I can wait for the full experience. they don't get the full experience in the Beta either. and for AC2, PS3 got some exclusives and 360 did too. 360 will probably get some exclusive stuff too

They did the same with the PC version of the original. They still need to release THAT as DLC. Hopefully it's just a timed exclusive.

I suppose you're right, but I've been itching to atleast get a nibble of the multiplayer ever since I heard that broterhood had multiplayer on it, I've spent hours looking up videos and interviews and gameplay of brotherhood, especially the multiplayer aspect, so it bothers me a bit that just because they have a PS3 they get a bit of an advantage, and the first wide-spread taste of the multiplayer. I never understood why there had to be exclusives in the first place. Why do only a select people get certain things and the other get something different. I feel like something is missing when I know that PS3ers have played something in AC2 or 1 that I haven't. And yes...I am obsessed.

The only thing that would tick me off is when the PS3 version really does get substantial exclusive content. We're all paying the same price, why should they get more than us?

Exactly, according to one of my sources listed above, PS3ers have bought less copies than 360 owners....which, in my opinion, buying less should not necessarily be rewarded. That same source hinted that that is the reason they gave PS3 and PSN the multiplayer beta and extra missions.

We should, but I meant the console makers paying Ubi money to get exclusives. If the PS3 gets good exclusive content, I know I'm getting it on the PS3, even though I would prefer to get it on the 360. That makes Sony money.

I understand why they're doing it, but I don't understand "why" they (and many other game companies) are doing it -- if ya know what I mean.

Imagine if the same trend occured w/ PC games ... playing the game on a Dell? Then check out this exclusive combo-move!

Yuck! Technically, the consoles are relationally more similar to Apple vs. PC than PC maker 'x' vs. PC maker 'y', but even then, I've never heard of a gaming company making exclusive content for either PC or Apple if they ported it for both.

Personally, I find it especially difficult to understand why (w/ three exceptions) a developer would release a game for only one of the consoles and not port to both. I find it hard to believe that either Microsoft or Sony would pay so much for the exclusive rights that it'd make up for what the developer could ultimately make from the sales on the other console.

Three noted exceptions:

1) The developer itself is owned by either Sony or Microsoft.

2) I'm greatly minimizing the number of people who own both consoles.

3) The game is lame and isn't expected to sell well anyway.

has everything the PS3 version has, also not all ps3 users will get the beta, only certain retailers have it available

As the OP said, most of the sales went to 360 so they are probably doing this to get more sales for PS3!! As some of yu have probably said (i didn't read all the replies)

But we're not dealing with ACB being exclusive to any console; it's on all the platforms it always has been. We're dealing with console-exclusive content, and if you didn't have a PS3 and were gonna buy it beforehand, it's not gonna stop the vast majority of people, so they won't lose sales, just have more sales on a particular platform.

Sorry, I never meant to imply that AC:B itself would be console exclusive. I was simply using the exclusive content aspects as a mis-guided launching pad to rant about exclusive games in general.

I certainly don't want to give the impression to others looking for AC:B info that it'll be exclusive to only the ps3.

If Sony are willing to pay extra for exclusive content and BETA rights then good for them, they're obviously willing to go out on a limb to give their users the best possible experience with the game. Microsoft on the other hand were either to slow or just didn't bother lol

It's like people who are getting the Codex edish and people who aren't, if you're willing to pay that little extra you get more bang for your buck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm not leasing my gaming system (PC in my case btw). I buy it from whatever distributor sells it and that's it. After that, I shouldn't have to rely on their financial program for my gaming experience.

I miss the days where dev companies had to pay Sony and Microsoft instead of the other way around. The console market is completely ruining the gaming scene.

I feel you, even though I'm one of those people with a PS3, but you gota remember that this life is about business, and not every decision people in the gaming business is to purposely offend anyone. Consider that microsoft is cheap, and didn't want to pay Ubisoft more money for extra content, and Playstation was!
...
Also, it works the other way around. I play all types of games, and there are things Xbox gets WAY before PS. For example, i love Need for Speed, and i also love the Ferrari, but unfortunately, only the Xbox users got to race with Ferraris in Need for Speed: Shift!

You know, that doesn't make sense... If a beta is to test for glitches and bugs, then shouldn't they release it for the 360 too, since they're different consoles and, oh I dunno, could potentially have different problems?

I remember the hard pain when I wanted Liberty City stories but it was also a (timed but a painfull long time!) exclusive for xbox 360. I don't like exclusive stuff but it's pretty much the same that Microsoft did too us with GTA IV. Only difference will be that this content of AC isn't a 'new' story but it probably will only be some characters etc.

IMO, everything that's a console exclusive for multi-platform titles needs to come to the other consoles withing 4 months of the other console getting it. And Ubi needs to make it clear that they're doing that, and when the other console will get it. I'm not talking about a vague "oh yeah, we're gonna try to get it to the others maybe," I mean in your press release clearly state whats up so we know whats up.

sony are just trying to out wit the xobx due to the fact ' more people own one (xbox)' there i said it. sony is not what it use to be.

I once was a playstation man but soon was turned. but to be fair, the xbox does get loads of extras all the time that the playstation doesnt get for months.

Well usually with these "exclusive" things they come out on the other system it just takes a little longer. And I think what Ubi is trying to do, is that since the PS3 owners didnt buy it as much as the xbox owners did, I believe that Ubi is trying to lure the PS3 owners into buying it by saying that the PS3 owners will get something exlusive over the Xbox. Because MOST PS3 owners I know complain about how they dont get anything "exlcusive". And I can understand that they are angry about it but don't lie to yourself Xbox has made Tons of money, I mean they pretty much dominate the gaming market, and PS3's online I have heard has some problems.

it's not uncommon for one system to do that, bout time PS3 got one, although according to the beta site, only the standard edition from Australian EB games get the codes, which sucks as i pre-ordered the codex edition(although when i asked they said they had not heard any news on whether they were doing it or not)

OT - i have a Kane and Lynch 2:dog days beta code if someone wants it, just PM me and i'll PM the code to you, it's a 360 exclusive so useless to me

WHAT????????? Omg if that is true i am going to be angry!! They told me the same thing!

@austin - you're an idiot ok?

'I want the exclusive to PS3 missions to be released on Xbox 360 and said that it is going to be at a press conference'!

Like bokeef said, 'bout time PS3 got an exclusive! You 360 people think you rule the gaming industry so only you should get the exclusives or all exclusives should come out later for you guys!

The only reason Ubi put out the Templar Map exclusives for download was because they counted towards 100% and no-one would have been able to get 100% without them!

I've said this a few times already but if the 360 users are unhappy I hope they're petitioning Microsoft and noone else. Sony has obviously gone out their way to optimise the game for their users and those complaining obviously can't handle that.

Ubisoft would be foolish not to take Sony up on a deal like this, Microsoft obviously couldn't be bothered... that's who your peition should be aimed at not Ubisoft http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Robson's right, are all you 360 people going to petition that 360 exclusives are available on PS3?

and why should Sony pay extra to get content for it's users to have them available to microsoft for free? does that mean we should get COD content at the same time as 360 despite Microsoft making a deal to receive it first?

the simple truth is
a) if it is story relevant, that is, it is needed to get 100% it will be in all versions
or
b) if it is just something like a costume/side mission that has no bearing on the actual game/100% it should be exclusive to PS3.

and the simple fact is, Sony paid for it, why should microsoft get it for free? does that mean i can send you the bill for AC:B so i can play it for free?

the simple truth is
a) if it is story relevant, that is, it is needed to get 100% it will be in all versions
or

Bottomline: As a PC gamer you're always screwed, since you have no company representing your gaming interests.

I doubt even 50% of PC gamers uses Steam as their primary game distributor.

@austin - you're an idiot ok?

'I want the exclusive to PS3 missions to be released on Xbox 360 and said that it is going to be at a press conference'!

Like bokeef said, 'bout time PS3 got an exclusive! You 360 people think you rule the gaming industry so only you should get the exclusives or all exclusives should come out later for you guys!

The only reason Ubi put out the Templar Map exclusives for download was because they counted towards 100% and no-one would have been able to get 100% without them!
Wait why am I an idiot?!
and I think no matter which console gets exclusive content that it should be timed. I own both consoles, but I think I'd like the controls better on the 360.

Not at the same time, but at least later!
IMO, the only good-exclusive is a timed one.

Well, damn Schlo, you should've thought about that before you bought a 360 and turned down PS3, besides, it's only for the people that waste like 40 extra bucks on a special addition, don't get your panties in a bunch. It sounds like this concerns you sooooo much you might just take legal action, lmao.
