Assassin’s Creed 3 is easily one of the most anticipated games left to release in 2012 and if you are wondering which version to pick up, Sony has stated their case on why the PS3 version may be the definitive version to pick up.
If you missed Sony’s E3 conference, you would have missed an important announcement regarding Assassin’s Creed 3 on the PS3. Sony and Ubisoft revealed at E3 that buying the PS3 version will get you four exclusive single player missions that won’t be available on any other platform.
The announcement was brief, but in a few months time when the game releases this is surely going to make a massive difference when you come to pick up the game, as four new exclusive missions is quite a helping of bonus content. There’s no specific details on what these missions will entail, but we expect Ubisoft to disclose additional details nearer release.
Aside from these exclusive missions, Sony also announced an Assassin’s Creed 3 console bundle that will be available on the same day as Assassin’s Creed 3 launches – October 30. Unfortunately, the console isn’t any special AC-designed one though, just your bog standard PS3 slim. There are also some reports that the exclusive missions are tied to the bundle only, but we’re pretty sure that it relates to the standalone game on PS3 as well. We’ll try to clear that up if more details arise.
In the world where all Call of Duty and Skyrim DLC land on the Xbox 360 first, is this a fair outcome for PS3 users in your opinion? It’s a shame that all these DLC exclusivity shenanigans exist in our opinion, but it looks like this trend will continue well into the next-generation and beyond.
Will you be picking up the PS3 version now solely for the four extra missions, or will you still pick up the PC or Xbox 360 version in the hope that they’ll come later on for a price?
