Ubisoft have already stated that all PS3 editions of AC3 will receive 4 exclusive missions. So I was on amazon earlier and noticed an updated boxart for the PS3 edition...

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51-h3ue-3eL._AA300_.jpg

The notice on the box says "Includes 60 minutes of exclusive Gameplay"

So, what do you this says about mission length? Are all missions around 15 minutes each, or is this just for the exclusive missions?
The E3 game play we've seen (Boston Demo, Frontier Demo) we know the Boston demo shows a side mission, but what about the Frontier demo? Alex Hutchinson has said that they haven't shown any game play of a main assassination target yet. Discuss :)

An houer is pretty long, the copernicus missions together were maybe 25 minutes together. But yeah the e3 demo of revelations was also somewhere halfway the game...
Do you get these missions with the freedom edition?

I imagine they will be part of every edition on the ps3 since they are ps3 exclusive rather than edition exclusive.

I'm really sick of how much exclusives there are with this game. I understand the reasoning behind this, Sony is probably paying them more money and exclusives is how you win a console war, but this compounded with the countless exclusives already in the many many different editions has left a bad taste in my mouth.

Well these 4 exclusive ps3 missions have been known about for a while now. Let's not turn the thread into complaining about the different exclusives and editions :P.

I believe this is not a new edition. These extra missions are included in ALL PS3 editions (already announced): the normal, special, Join or Die and Freedom., etc. I mean, every PS3 copy of the game will include this exclusive content.

Edit: Oh, I just realized it is called "PS3 Exclusive Edition". I said nothing.

So what does that change?

It's still stupid marketing crap.

It's still stupid marketing crap.Just as stupid when DLC for Skyrim comes out a month earlier on X360 than on PS3. All this retail/platform exclusive crap needs to die, but the problem is that people only care & complain when their console gets to be the unlucky one with a particular game/DLC

Well, they have an excuse for PS3. The ps3 patch isn't done yet, because it's still full of bugs and stuff. I'd rather wait and get a full game with almost no bugs, rather than having it released early with a lot of errors.

The only real solution to this Problem is this..

360 users get out of here..:p

I mean why are 360 users coming to this thread ? You`ll just rage..

I feel bad for you guys, honest, but 360 does get a lot of exclusives elsewhere, you`re just unlucky that AC is one that gives exclusives to PS3.

I do agree, though that it is crap.

Microsoft is more aggressive with exclusive/timed DLCs. But with AC3, Sony will obviously make a big push. There's still the announcement of AC3 PS3 Super Slim bundle coming

It's not about the consoles. It's just that i hate these kind of marketing strategies, for whatever platform.

They are Europe's version of EA Games with all of their Sony exclusive missions and breaking up of DLC amongst the many versions of their games.

Agreed. It really should be fair for everyone. But really how often have you heard of things completely fair? Sadly not very often.

True. They would have to space out their info a lot more than what already happens. People might lose interest because of it.

Even with these exclusive missions, AC has still sold best on the Xbox 360.

Hutchinson confirms that this exclusive content will come in the form of four additional side missions. He states that these missions are “cool,” but are not critical to the overall story of the game.

So... it's pretty much going to be Copernicus Conspiracy 2.0 with no stupid letter delivery missions. Just the sweet beggining and end only longer.

pacmanate

The missions revolve around Benedict Arnold. So basically the Copernicus Conspiracy in 4 different parts.

The DLC bragging rights each console get is way out of hand,im a huge AC fan,but im not gonna go out and buy a PS3 ,for the sake of a few extrra missions or skins.With each new game comes more crap...if its not about your system your using its where you pre-order your game, if you want this mission go here, if you want better gear ya better pre-order with them.Just make the **** games fair for everyone and let us all enjoy the stuff,,im sure most of us would buy it on marketplace $$.

Well, seeing as you don't really miss out on much, considering the exclusive material won't affect the story in any great way, it'd be better to just watch the missions on Youtube and not dwell on it.

Bonus missions are generally fairly insubstantial. I watched the copernicus thing on youtube, and I didn't really care that I missed it. It was short and simple.

Meh, edition exclusive, pre-order exclusive and console exclusive missions and other crap are all usually a waste of time anyway. Seriously who the **** cares about a couple of extra minutes. I'm all for everyone being treated equal though. But, as others have already pointed out no one really cares as long as they're not on the losing side. And that alone is the sole reason why this entire world is in the condition it is.

there was an interview released with Alex Hutchinson talking about the hour of exclusive footage being about Benedict Arnold. I don't feel like digging it up but I've seen it.
