Ubisoft: Preorders for Assassin’s Creed II up 80% over original

Wednesday, 4th November 2009 23:57 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that preorder numbers for Assassin’s Creed II are up 80 percent compared to the original, which is in stark contrast to Monday’s report from Janco analyst Mike Hikey, citing preorders for the sequel were up 10-20 percent on the original.

This bit was revealed during Ubisoft’s financial call to investors, along with the news that the company expects 15-25 percent higher total sales of the sequel.

Guillemot also said that Ubisoft and Sony signed a television marketing deal this year, which means that TV spots featuring the game will be PS3centric only.

Take that other formats, we reckon.

    I don’t think the other formats will worry too much. The Black version of the game sold out ages ago for 360, but is still available for other platforms. Possibly why they feel the need to give PS3 a helpful leg-up like this?

    Personally, I’m indifferent which platform I play it on; I only picked 360 in the end for the sake of continuity, as that’s where I played the first one.

    What’s so special about these Black and White versions? Ubi’s already confirmed that all the exclusive content will be made available as DLC over the course of time.

    I saved a few quid by pre-ordering the standard version from Chipsworld.

    I think I probably get this for my PS3, just so my games collection stays even.
