Yeah my tech TV station that plays X-Play and Attack of the show apparently doesn't play X-Play new and live. Can I watch it directly off the website at 6:30?

I don't know if you can watch it directly off the website. But X-play is pretty good about posting gameplay later on that night or the next day, usually in the morning before noon.

Its 6:30 eastern time in the U.S., I have no idea what time that is in the U.K. try searching for a time converter on the web using google search, hope it helps.

How do you know it will be actual gameplay?
Maybe it's just a preview talking about the gameplay with the old screenshots and trailer.

From G4

'' You don't want to miss X-Play tonight at 6:30 ET, because you'll get to see Assassin's Creed 3 in action!''

So it sure is AC III gameplay

I don't have the station here in Canada I guess. It's "Tech TV" and they play AoTS at 7 live but apparently they don't do X-Play live. They play the show like 12 times a night...but not live I guess. It's playing EP Daily instead which is some Canadian version I guess.

I hope it gets uploaded quick!

The OP clearly says G4 will be posting some gameplay with probably 1 min length or little more plus you all seem pretty excited about the video soooo...how is that there'll be no gameplay?

EDIT: alright I probably misunderstood you. It's on already, 2 min gameplay preview, no big deal

What? most gaming companies release their new info and such through media outlets. Its the same idea thats behind announcing all the new stuff in Gameinformer.



It is a little anoying how all "gameplay preview"s are just inteviews and articles....

Would be kinda weird right? Showing real in-game footage on a website almost no one knows about.
It wouldn't be good marketing because everyone is dying to see some real gameplay footage.

Isn't "gameplay preview" a pretty misleading term? How is it a Preview if they're just talking about it? Isn't it more like a review?

Seriously, you think Ubi would do this before PAX or E3?

Never before have I seen Ubi do anything like that before a big gaming convention.

It has always been the same for each AC entry. First they annouce the release, we see screens and read info on various websites like GI, then the public get a look at the first gameplay at E3.

However, this year we are lucky because they are showing the first gameplay at PAX.

It is a preview because we saw actual gameplay. Twice in fact. A "hands on preview" is where the press get to play the game.

As you'll notice, most outlets have corrctly titled today's write ups a "Preview". Technically, we did see gamepaly, so that can be attached to it as well.

The 10 minute demo we saw will be shown to PAX attendees. Ubisoft will probably release for public consumption (watching) after that. It is worth it, trust me.

I'm really looking forward to it!
before the official announchement of AC3 i really didn't expect it would this awesome.
I've never been so hyped-up for a game.

Me too and in fact, Ubisoft has never publiziced an AC game that much in terms of anticipation and general info since AC2, I guess it is even more than that game.

I guess I felt G4TV's use of the term was misleading because they're a TV show. With online magazines and review sites you can expect to see only images and write-ups, but when a TV show advertises they'll have a "gameplay preview to show", it really sets up false expectations. I'm sure the wording wasn't entirely accidental on their part considering how many people fell for it.

Ah well, just another two weeks until PAX, I guess. I'm sure the demo will be worth it.

Yeah, to me, a gameplay preview is actually seeing gameplay. aka the boston demo.

I know that, I wans't disputing that and I have already seen your article. It's just that I assumed Ubi would use a different video for E3 if they are also making the PAX one available for public release.

Yes, we can pretty much assume a new demo playthrough will be prepared for Ubi's E3 presser. Going by what happened with revelations last year :D

As I said before, no one is showing gameplay yet.

But as hinted at - it may be at the big events ;)

Yeah so basically......... Gameplay that was shown to all the cool people at Ubisofts convention in London last week will be shown at PAX.
And 2 other gameplay demos will be featured at E3, the first being the stage demo and the second having a commentary (I think they always do that)

We will also get some improved gameplay at Gamescom (Like ACR, and ACB had).

Bear in mind that Ubisoft might switch up their plans from last year. Case in point, how early the reveals came this year. So don't get too worked up if stuff doesn't follow the exact same path it did in previous years :D

Until Ubisoft confirm game modes, anything seen on 3rd party websites should be treated as rumour, speculation or a mistake.

Yeah I usually am pretty decent at mapping out when info is going to start coming in by comparing it to previous years but Revelations was a little bit off and this year is wayyyy off so I'm not even going to try this year. I'm just gonna sit and wait and watch I guess this year.

A lot of people said the same thing when 3rd Party websites were stating Uncharted 3 would have Offline Multiplayer and the public crediting it as false assumption due to the fact that it would be "too much too handle" and as well because it would cause a graphics downgrade.

And then bam.

Uncharted 3 featured Offline MP without any detrimental effect to its IP whatsoever.

Moral of the story: Don't count all your chickens before they hatch.
