    As the whole "Assassin's Creed PS3 exclusive" fiasco finally draws to a close, I'm left wondering what in blue blazes was the point in lying to gamers all this time? I know this isn't the first time something like this has happened, but it certainly has to be the most notorious, and confusing instance in all of gaming history. I think the majority of intelligent gamers knew this was coming, for many months now (if not from the beginning). Even if you never read a single "rumor" or "scoop".....of which there were dozens.....you only needed to look at Ubisoft's history, to know they wouldn't make 'AC' an exclusive. They tend to "***** out" their products to every platform possible, as much as might 'EA'.
    Aside from maybe a monetary "incentive" from Sony, and the promise of more media hype than they could ever want (and now likely regret), what purpose did this delayed announcement of the inevitable serve?
    From Sony's standpoint, it only makes them seem desperate for a (supposed) "system-seller" that they can hang their $600 pricetag on. There's really not much in their launch lineup, that screams "Sell your family heirlooms if you have to.....just buy it!".....at least not yet.
    As for Ubi, they've proven that they suck at keeping secrets......possibly worse than any 6 y.o. in the history of the human race. If you look at the "paper trail" that has been pointing to this day, all along, it only makes it that much more comical, reading the repeated attempts at keeping the media at bay with "AC has only been announced for PS3".
    I assume I'm not alone in that I'm relieved that this drama is finally over, and the gamers can go back to just waiting (IMPATIENTLY!) for more screens.......and hopefully some gameplay, from this amazing, highly-anticipated title. I can only hope Ubi has learned a very valuable lesson from all of this. If I see the headline " Prince of Persia 4 to be____ exclusive.......I'm gonna start shootin' people.


    That is all.

    Not really, he just wants an explanation for the keeping the pc and 360 version a secret.

    Rather then just flame OP! I got theory!

    They probably figured out that the ps3 is so expensive that only a small market will ever see AC the first few months (or longer) after its release. And they gotta make a dime for all that fansy eye-candy that AC holds. ^_^

    Hey! Im just guessing here.

    Or maybe they decided to make it be on 360 after they got the "Next gen" quiz back from the forum members (like me) and overwhelming numbers said they won't get a ps3 (like me).
