Can PS Vita hardware handle Assassin’s Creed 3?

With E3 just around the corner, it is a very exciting time for gaming fans around the world. At the same time, it is probably a very nervous time for publishers and developers as they hope their secrets are not revealed before their E3 keynotes take place.

One massive secret regarding Assassin’s Creed 3 may have been leaked though, to Ubisoft’s obvious displeasure. There’s still no guarantee that this is real until we find out at E3, but a retailer listing has been discovered for a PS VITA version of Assassin’s Creed 3.

Given the mouthwatering screenshots and trailers that we’ve seen for the console version of ACIII so far, our first reaction to a PS Vita version is – how would this even be possible? The PS Vita can handle console quality games to an extent, but Assassin’s Creed 3, seriously? We would love to see if that is possible.

On the other hand, Ubisoft may be developing a spin-off version of ACIII on the PS Vita instead, with toned down graphics and a bigger emphasis on touchscreen play, rather than mesmerizing graphics that we’re seeing on the console version. Ubisoft would surely have a massive hit on their hands if they are developing a game for the PS Vita, but we would find it very hard to believe if they can just port the console version over to the PS Vita without encountering any difficulties.

Right now, all we have to go on is a retailer listing by Zavvi. An October 31 release date is also mentioned, which puts in the same bracket as the console release. Could Ubisoft have possibly kept PS Vita development a secret, or is this too good to be true? You would imagine that developing both console and PS Vita versions at exactly the same time, for a simultaneous release is a very hard task to achieve. Somehow we have a feeling that this may be one pre-E3 rumor that will turn out to be complete rubbish. It’s good to dream though, right folks?
