"Copernicus Conspiracy" dlc to be ps3 exclusive. I dont know about you but as an xbox 360 player this feels to me like ubisoft is saying your not as big a fan and you don't deserve it. I guess the beta exclusive wasn't enough of a benefit to ps3 players. How long must we stand idly by and watch people argue over the reasons their gaming systems are better. And then have companies feed into this through provisions like this. Please post your comments below if you agree with me that a dlc shouldn't discriminate against gaming platforms and that this dlc should be made available to all simultaneously.

Ok well in all fairness, Microsoft has done this too with some other game companies. But yea, I agree that it is kinda stupid. I'm more ****ed at Sony and Microsoft that they won't make the systems able to play each other online. So many friends with Brotherhood on 360 and I can't kill them.

Anyways, I'm sure it'll be on 360 sooner or later, but I can tell you this much, for that bit of DLC, you didn't miss much.

That DLC pack is already out.
As you probably guessed it, Sony has payed Ubisoft to do it for the PS3.

And you are not the first nor last person to talk about this exclusive DLC.

Besides, you think Microsoft doesn't do it? Well, big news: It does!

I agree. Ever since the DLC for GTA IV became an exclusive to 360 just cause MS paid them. Eventhough GTA has been on the playstation. But its all about money i guess. I bet Sony paid UBI so PS3 user can get exclusive. I don't even think it'll stay that way. Cause later on, it'll be available for DLC for all platforms anyways.

Oh shut up xbox user. Microsoft does this a lot and even doing it for Fallout New Vegas the first DLC is for xbox exclusive. Microsoft does this stupid stuff more than sony so I don't see why this was reposted.

If you look at the post I said gaming companies contributed to this is. This is not specific to sony or microsoft or ubisoft. Please read my post before you go saying I said microsoft is perfect, p.s. it's not.

Yay, someone to come and start problems. I was worried there might be a mature conversation on the forum today, thanks DramaMan.

Anyways, I'm sure in a month or two it'll be out on 360 too, the most you miss is a little more guard killing and a pain in the butt messenger mission.

Okay, I agree. DLC should be distributed to both consoles and PC.
Just because we want to doesn't mean it will happen.
Money makes the world go around(Maybe something else too), unless no one steps in to do something about it, we can't change it.

Way to alienate half your fan base Ubi. Maybe some day you'll learn that console elitism isn't profitable in the long run.

Guys..

Lets not start a fight.. anyone starting a console fanboy war will answer to me..


The DLC is available now, it's not the future DLC some may have heard about.

It is Exclusive to the Sony PS3 - it is a few side missions and does not relate to the single player main storyline.

The DLC 'Copernicus Conspiracy' will not be available on any other format.

This exclusive content was announced many months ago, as an exclusive deal with Sony, which the Beta was also part of.


Future DLC will be available on all formats.

It doesn't matter if it's one mission or 10 missions. The problem is there shouldn't be any exclusives. Please make sure Ubi knows that we XBox users are not very happy that we have been alienated on this.

Let's be honest the DLC will suck anyway and will just be a pointless assassination on a pointless person who basically adds nothing to the flow of the game, just another Templar losing power.

Meh.

This. I still find this new found DLC hype to be pathetic. Sure receiving updates for games is awesome, but when it gets released at the same time as the main game, what's the freakin use of not putting it in-game already but to **** your users off?

Release-Day-DLC can be developed, when the game itself is mastered and is being produced and shipped to the various retailers...so it cannpt be put on the Disc...what ****es me of are codes you have to buy to unlock content already on the disc...

Guys, chill out. Even as a PS3 owner, I get exasperated but don't throw my toys out of the pram when the ecksbocks gets exclusives, as it has done with several top drawer games lately. Just shrug and move on, you're honest to god missing a couple of non-plot related courier-esque missions, it's not like Ubi cut out the end of the game on the 360 version.

that sucks, does the dlc add to the story much?
I have both consoles and i bought ACB for xbox since i like getting the achievements (i know there are trophies, but they add together better then ps3) and the online probably has more players online.

So they add nothing to the main story line - which is the same on both formats.

You obviously didn't get the whole point of the topic. It doesn't matter what the DLC is, what matters is the XBox users are getting the shaft. Who's to say I don't want to play that? Obviously it's Ubi who's telling me I don't want to play it since they are going to keep it from me.

Exclusives are nothing but Console Elitism and it should never happen. EVERYONE deserves to play EVERYTHING that the game has, not just one console over another.

If you want to run around Rome delivering letters or assassinating guards, you can still do that on the Xbox, albeit without defending Copernicus. That's the only miniscule difference. Console exclusives are a fact of business. It's been going on since before downloadable DLC and the Xbox generation. You can continue being angsty and complaining about "elitism", however you have managed to figure elitism into a console mission exclusive, but it smacks of shoe.other.foot. or too much free time with no real problems. Where's the complaints in people having access to missions and skins by forking out extra cash for limited editions? Not everyone has an extra /$20-30 for a few skins and levels, and EVERYONE should get access to the content, right?

As long as limited editions are for BOTH consoles, I have no problem with it. You have a CHOICE on whether to spend the money or not. I have NO CHOICE on the DLC because I wasn't given one. That is the complaint here.

I didn't want the limited edition or the collectors edition. That was my choice. I wasn't given that choice about the DLC or about the demo for that matter.

You alienate half your fan base by doing this and it needs to stop.

The only weapon you have against dirty business practices such as these is your wallet. Don't buy the game at retail price. Wait for it to drop in price significantly (my route), or don't buy it at all.

Regardless of whether there is exclusive DLC or not, you will stay play the game, because DLC doesn't matter. You play for the story. As Copernico has really nothing to do with the story, you will not miss out.

God.. you're like an immature child, stop acting like you're 8. You're part of the reason why I never bothered with consoles since the genesis until I had to get a console to play some of the games I wanted.

It was bad enough with ATI vs Nvidia with PC gamers until realized we where not kids.

Alright guys, its not that big a deal. I have an xbox, and I am not all angry about it. If it was say, a new MP game mode, yeah I would be. But it isn't. Also here is my main thing, us xbox owners got a huge deal with MW2 resurgence pack, it was a month earlier than ps3. And that actually is a big thing for a game, just not a few unimportant things. /thread
