This is the Wii-u footage correct? Its crazy nintendo didnt show this as a live demo on their stage floor...instead spending half their conference telling us they're just gonna show games and not fill it with talking.

Looks alittle washed out compared to the other assassins (be interesting to see the console comparisions on this one). Gotta say though this is the first AC i'm looking forward to in a long time

Those were PS3 buttons no?

This is obviously the PS3 version, check the HUD (bottom-right corner). R2, X, O... PS3 buttons. They are mainly using the PS3 version to advertise this game, the very first gameplay demo was also from the PS3 build (don't know about the ship footage).

And the game looks MUCH better than any of the other AC games, especially in terms of performance. I didn't see a single screen-tear in this demo, something the PS3 sufferd from greatly in the first 3 games. It's nice to see they're finally optimising for the PS3 as well.

i couldnt get the stream to work earlier so it probably is ps3 footage. But i remember seeing the exact same demo during E3 which was being shown on the wii-u so i know they had a fully working version at the show.

Heres a youtube link to the wii-u footage of the demo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AgcKKjxDME&feature...

Not probably, it IS the ps3 version. Not Trying to be rude here.

Thanks for the Wii-U footage, hadn't seen it yet. Hard to tell since it's off-screen but it looks about the same as the rest of the versions (though I haven't seen any 360 footage yet).

Haha, the Wii-U footage had a pretty big glitch in the demo presentation :)

I haven't played any of the AC games but it seems mostly a shame that it has to contextualize itself with Desmond and all that.

Generally though, I am not really interested in this.

Anyone who had any illusion about this being in any way balanced must feel pretty stupid now. This is deeply unpleasant stuff, with extreme levels of violence being used exclusively to murder Brits.

The tragic thing is Ubi seem to not even know their history, as an NPC shouts some sort of racist 'go home' taunt I guess the fact that the yanks are Europeans too was lost in translation.

How is this more shocking than killing Italians or Arabs?

You're being a bit ridiculous really. It's just a video game and quite a few British soldiers happened to have been killed at the time.

That's not what racist means dude.

I'm British. I see no problem with this; it is historical, not fictional.

    KORNdog @crookedmind: there may be rare cases, but generally, no. Case in point, BF4. Player count was different, framerate was different. It wouldn't work. (1 Hour ago)

    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (2 Hours ago)
