Assassin’s Creed 3 contains 60 minutes of exclusive content on PS3, per Amazon UK

Saturday, 11 August 2012 21:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Assassin’s Creed 3 will contain 60 extra minutes content exclusively on PS3, according to Amazon UK. During E3 2012, Sony announced during its press conference the PS3 version of the game would contain DLC not available on PC or Xbox 360. This must be what Amazon’s box art is implying. We’ll send a mail. Assassin’s Creed 3 is out at the end of October. Thanks, OPM.

    In a breathtaking exclusive, Desmond meets Snake, in an explosive Assasins Creed/MGS crossover.

    During a 55 min cutscene the nature of virtual reality in modern warfare and the philosophical necessity of the lone Assasin is discussed, culminating in a exhilarating quick time event!!

    BS, crap like this makes me just not want to purchase the game at all. And I own all three platforms, but I wanted the PC version.

    I’ll not pre-order this now, I’ll probably wait for it to crash in price like the other AC titles did.

    #5 3 years ago
  6. Takeshi

    Complete bollocks. This needs to end. Okay, pre-ordering at certain retailers get you certain DLC for free which would otherwise be buyable after the game’s release. Also, most of the time consoles are the only ones getting certain DLCs since PC is an afterthought.

    Although to be fairly honest, we don’t know anything about those 60 minutes. It could be something that is completely unrelated to the game, but I suspect it might be a few exclusive missions/quests.

    I wonder what kind of reasoning they’ll come up with for this one. Oh boy, I want to hear Marcus Beer rant about this.

  7. TMRNetShark

    LOL, Thankfully I was getting it on PS3.

    Cause you know, finally PS3 owners get some exclusivity with third party games *Cough*CoD/Skyrim*Cough*.

    Although, in general… it sucks. Why can’t every system get all the same content instead of splintering and then making people made with DLC that costs money.

    I remember when Expansion Packs actually ADDED to the game (like Age of Empire II) but now a days… it’s just a little extra couple levels or bullshit like that.

    @8, Mkay. And the game will have 8Gb of space on the 25-40GB Blu Ray disc, so what?
    for your information Assassins Creed 2 was 7 GB on the disc.

    http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/5963279/Assassins_Creed_La_Hermandad_(2010)_Ps3EURMULTi5 link.

    60 hours of gameplay could be additional 30mb. Blu Ray Teh power.

  13. Phoenixblight

    @12

    Not true actually. They compress them for the PC and 360 where they don’t have to for the Blu Ray because of the space. No need for unneccessary compression for the PS3 granted its not take the full amount but it is around 12-15 GB usually.

    ANd really linking to a torrent? That would get you banned in most forums.

    You can’t compress MULTI5-6 Data Tards just in a sec and that requires sme time that no one will ever do. I can dump PS3 version without any compress on any PC without any issues and the result will be the same.

    If someone thinks that the ASS Creed game had 25GB or anything in the past on the Ps3 then he smokes Crap. There would be a version of it on any pirate site. Compressed and not.

    There are games that have 25 or 30 GB of space. It’s Metal Gear Solid 4 for example.

    or

    http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/7272915/Metal_Gear_Solid_HD_Collection_(PS3)_TB_cracked

    and 90% of these bigger files are just uncompressed movies. You can check for yourself.

    Assassins Creed games are not one of them. So Teh Blu Ray power.

    You do realise they will probably do what they usually do. PS3 will get this for like 6months and sometime down the line, Xbox will be offered it as DLC so who cares if you don’t get it day one.

    @17
    You are right. Most multiplatform games adhere to dvd size in order to avoid disc problems in xbox 360.
    Only exclusives like uncharted , gow, mgs4 make use of extra blu-ray space.
    But can you refrain from giving torrent links? Piracy sucks.

    @Gama_888, you should be banned from the internet. Someone that links a torrent file is not allowed. LOL. So what’s the problem? Linking a torrent file is a crime? Linking a file with PS3 files is already a CRIME?

    Buy a brain, “srsly”.

    @Gekidami, “lol What exactly are you even trying to prove?”

    I’m trying to prove that you should buy uncompressed brain because it is definitely compressed.

    “The AC games are multiplats made to fit on a 8GB 360 DVD, would would their PS3 version suddenly shoot up in size?”

    Nope. But even exclusive games have the same DVD space. The only difference that they don’t compress video Data and because of that you can have 25 or 30 GB of files. In reality with Ps3 Devkit you can make a 100Gb files.

    Awesome examples with MGS4/Motorstorm apocalypse and Uncharted Games. They are good games with a lot of video files that are uncompressed.

    @Dragon246, you are right. Piracy sucks but torrent files have nothing to do with it. It’s just a File with a bunch of Ps3 files. There is no piracy guide or anything. It’s just a file.

    “Only exclusives like uncharted , gow, mgs4 make use of extra blu-ray space.”

    extra space is used for Video files. These files can be compressed in the 360 version.

    It’s all good in the neighborhood for me, seeing as how I was planning on buying AC III for PS3 anyhows. Though it does kinda suck on how some part of the game will be restricted to only the PS3 version (even if it’s a miniscule part of it), and this wouldn’t seem so bad if there weren’t so many different pre-order bonuses for different retailers for this game specifically, each promising different weapons, and some with full missions if u reserve it at that specific retailer (Gamestop, BestBuy, to name 2), which seem to cut game content even further from the final day 1 version of the game. Though to me, this isn’t the worst case of 3rd party exclusive stuff, the worst case; so, how’s the PS3 version of Dawnguard for Skyrim? O wait…… I get that situation’s different from this one, but generally, it’s in the same context.

    @23 grow up, your acting like a 12 year old mate.
    Its always the same with you, your just pisseed off once again that your £1000+ pc is not getting as much dev support as £200 consoles.

    And i didnt say that linking a torrent isnt allowed, im saying it shouldn’t be.
    As this is a gaming news websit, id like to believe that the users and creaters of it would like to support the gaming industry as much as possible and allowing dickheads like you to post any amounts of torrent links, WHICH DAMAGE THIS INDUSRTY, should not be allowed.

    I guess in the end i’d just look for any excuse to get a stupid fucking troll like you, who goes on as if he actually makes the fucking games when he doesnt have a fucking clue, BANNED, so that no-one on this site has to read your dumb comments anymore.
    Hell just look at how u started in this thread, u attacked a guy who made a joke about the power of blu-ray.

  26. Erthazus

    @Gama_888, “WHICH DAMAGE THIS INDUSRTY”

    So a file with PS3 files damage this industry? Are you mental?

    “Grow Up”

    you said this word 2 times so i guess you are butt hurted right now. You are the only one who needs to grow up here because if you really believe that a bunch of files damage this industry you probably never actually went to a school, but you should right now. September is soon, prepare yourself.

    “your just pisseed off once again that your £1000+ pc is not getting as much dev support as £200 consoles.”

    you are also delusional. Check. My PC get’s much more support from devs these days. I’m not playing games in horrible res with horrible frame rate.

  28. DSB

    I don’t see how a torrent link (not exactly advertising or advocating anything) would be bannable, when having 80+ post discussions centered on individual commenters is not.

    Do you honestly believe that it makes any difference as to whether people download torrents or not?

    Eurogamer recently published an article saying that piracy is totally justifiable, which is batshit and all, but really, getting your panties in a twist over a torrent link is just being offended for the sake of being offended.

  29. Sadismek

    @26 I think he meant that you were promoting piracy on a gaming website by putting up links on it’s comment section.

    And by your thinking (after all that “horrible res with horrible frame rate”), you won’t have any problems if I serve you a piece of shit preserved in the most beautiful and expensive wrapping paper, will you?

    Given that it’s a gaming news website, I’d much rather think that the creators care more about following the stories, than who it might serve to hurt or benefit.

    I don’t believe the point of a website like this is to lick as many boots as possible.

    Of course torrents aren’t good for the industry, but it’s not like anyone has written a post extolling their virtues. And that includes Erthazus. He could’ve just referenced the size of the rip instead of providing a link to it, but what’s the difference?

    It’s long since indexed by google and most other search engines, and readily available to anyone merely searching on the name of the game, so what is it you hope to accomplish?

    @Erthazus

    Check your facts buddy. PS3 exclusives usually have way more than 8 GBs of data in games without pre-rendered cut scenes.

    BTW, because Microsoft made that business choice back in 2005 to stick with DVDs… it’s the reason why the industry is in a decline because games are stagnant and most games have shortened from ~15 hours to well below 10 hours and focus on “Multiplayer.”

    #31 3 years ago
  32. Gadzooks!

    #32

    Check your facts buddy. Most PS3 exclusives have data duplication to cut down on the PS3′s horrific bluray seek times.

    Not saying they would all fit on a DVD but actual game size is nowhere close to the actual used bluray capacity.

    Oh, and the decline comment.. hilarious! XD

    #32 3 years ago
  33. TMRNetShark

    @33

    Wrong, PS3 multiplatform games have data duplication because in games like Oblivion/Skyrim… it will be easier for the Blu-ray’s inferior disc speed to read it faster. Plus why are games like Heavenly Sword and Resistance 2 and 3 going from 20-30 GBs a piece? Don’t believe me? The numbers are out there… I just won’t link to them. Still don’t believe me? Not my problem ;)

    As for the decline:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/09/video-game-sales-july-2012_n_1762458.html?utm_hp_ref=technology

    Year over year… sales are in a decline. Look at the handheld industry. Both the 3DS and PSVita struggle against the smartphone market while people in the console market want to wait until the next round of consoles.

    But hey! Believe what you want to believe… No skin off my nose. ;)

  34. OlderGamer

    Interesting, I hadn’t given any thought to dvd size causing games to be stagnet. I get the idea and thinking there. But I think if you look at Steam and their indie community, you will see fantastic and inovatitive games. All of them much smaller in size to even the average console game. Same can be said to a lesser extent for PSN and XBLA(and indie) games.

    I see what your saying about game size tho, and next gen we will prolly see larger game sizes. My concern is won’t that drive up dev costs and lengthen dev times?

    #34 3 years ago
  35. TMRNetShark

    Steam is great… but then you have douchebag companies like EA and Ubisoft (both who looovee console markets) get their kicks by adding restrictive DRM to PC counterparts of multiplatform games.

    One example I love is EA and their BF3 server list… Why can’t it be in game? NOPE… it has to be through Battlelog or else everything will /explode.

    Yes, the DVD does restrict developers. In Battlefield 3, they had to make different textures because of M$ stupid restrictions on “the game must be playable without installing textures.” LA Noire was 3 discs long! I’m not gonna sit here and tell you one console is better than the other… I’m telling you that the gaming industry tends to go with the people who have the biggest market share (Xbox 360) which just happens to have the smallest disc capacity (along with the Wii). PC gaming is it’s own league because no one needs to go through publishing partners or go through rigorous crash testing before being allowed to go on sale.

    Slender is a PC indie game that I probably had the most fun with since HL2. PC gaming is the way to go when it comes to innovative and cool concept games. I’m personally waiting for 0×10^c because I know it will be awesome. Those innovations though… are sadly not enough to keep up a declining market that makes games for the lowest common denominator.

    You are all acting as if you never played current gen game before…
    We all know what is inside a “60 minutes” exclusive. Most likely is 1 or 2 “fetch-quests” that you will do in 20-30min, and that add no value or interest to the game.
    Why bother so much with something so silly?
    Let Microsoft and Sony kill each other and just stay out of it.

    Do better research on bluray seek times and data duplication. Its a fact, many PS3 devs have said its necessary.

    I know the industry is in decline. It always happens near the end of a console cycle. This isnt news. Whats hilarious is your rediculous suggestion that DVD format has anything to do with it. It doesnt, of course.

    It will be interesting to see what MS and Sony use in their next boxes. Have Blu-ray seek/read speeds increased sufficiently? DVD has been fine for the most part this generation – but next? More capacity and better performance in general would be needed.

    A side note on compression of game assets – NB:not video – they don’t store them without compression on disc for the simple reason that it’s quicker to load compressed assets and then uncompress them once loaded. That applies to PS3 and 360.

    @OG
    “I see what your saying about game size tho, and next gen we will prolly see larger game sizes. My concern is won’t that drive up dev costs and lengthen dev times?”

    Any more so than current big PC games? With the added restriction of a fixed set of hardware and the implication that design wise MS and Sony are converging a lot more. There are savings to be made too.

    Realistically budgets can only go as high as the market supports. It’s not like you can’t create fantastic games on smaller budgets either. So we may see the end of too many huge budgets for cinematic overblow pieces of “gameplay” – I doubt there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth though :)

    “Realistically budgets can only go as high as the market supports. It’s not like you can’t create fantastic games on smaller budgets either. ”

    Could not agree more Doc. I think we have already seen this. There are several alternitives to Big Box 60usd retail games.

    As for pc budgets, ya want to keep in mind two things:

    First PC pubs don’t have to pay console licensing fees.

    Second PC is mostly Digital.

    Both of those factor into keeping price points down. Other things matter too, like the relitivly small window to sell a Console game before used game sales canibilize the sales of new copies as compared to PC, where games have a longer tail of sales. And of course some other facters too.

    That’s the thing about the “sky is falling in”-ness of the current state of the gaming industry. It’s not dying, it’s reforming, reacting to the current state of affairs and transforming itself. All for the good in my opinion.

    PC Budgets. Console licensing fees are more than accounted for in the game prices themselves. For example Borderlands 2 is available for pre-order at £30 on PC and £37-ish X360, of which only about £5 is licensing cost. The others are good points though.

    @26, i feel dirty for replying to you again but im not letting this lie because i kinda hate you :)

    “So a file with PS3 files damage this industry? Are you mental?”

    Obviously they do you idiot, its Piracy. Are u really trying to say that piracy doesnt damage the industry??
    But then again, u are a pc user so you are probably one of the ones that pirates all his games, correct??

    I said you need to grow up twice to emphasise just how much you need to do it. Maybe if YOU went to school you’d understand that.
    And dont tell me to go to school you basement dwelling troll, i do, im at uni learning how to make games.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, your pc is getting more support than a console??
    Now that is the pure definition of delusional my ugly little friend.
    There are many more console exclusive titles than there are pc titles, and isnt it you who is always ranting about how your pc games are getting dumbed down for consoles??

    “I’m not playing games in horrible res with horrible frame rate.”
    No thats because you have a powerfull pc,
    1. you still complain about games with horrible res and frame rate so you must be :)
    2. The fact that i can stil play the games you play on your much superior pc also proves that devs are willing to put in the extra work to make it work on a console.

    Asif you even said devs support pc better than console, Its just factually not true.
    2 years ago there were bearly a handfull of devs thats main developing was for pc, now its probably a little more but only because next gen is only round the corner.

    @38….

    http://www.blu-ray.com/faq/#bluray_speed

    Would you look at that… almost 9 MB/s. You seem to forget that most DVDs that the Xbox uses are Dual Layer DVDs. DLDVDs have a SLOWER seek/speed time than a SL (single layer) Bluray disc. I’ve done my research… I know which is the superior format.

    Now a SL DVD is faster than a SL Bluray, that is a fact (with read times of 9.25MB/S to 15.85MB/s)… but we aren’t talking about SL DVDs… but DL DVDs.

    As noted here:
    http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=11566&PageId=3

    and

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/1492/9

    and

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/10-dvd-burners,911-14.html

    Those are all DVD drives that have at least a 16x rating… 25% faster than the Xbox’s 12x drives. As you can note from the pressed DLDVD test (what all Xbox games are made from), the reading speed can only get up to ~12x speed for the fastest drive as it approaches the outer rings (the fastest part of the disc). If that’s the case, a 12x disc drive will get roughly 9x speed for DLDVDs (~25% less).

    And if you know ANYTHING about DVD versus Bluray… you would know that the Bluray has Constant Linear Velocity (meaning that the disc spins at the same rate from the inner rings to the outer rings) while DVD drives have Constant Angular Velocity. So when a DVD’s disc is spinning at it’s fastest speed, the inner rings would get a 3.5x rating all the way to the outer rings at 9x… or an average of 6-7x throughout the disc. That is at an average of 7.93 MB/s (some sectors will be faster, up to 10.5MB/s… and some will be slower… at almost 4.5 MB/s).

    So stop spewing lies as if they are facts. Seriously… your ignorance and lack of the use of “Google” is alarming and definitely troubling.
