Hmm I think I'd rather play AC3 on my PS3 and play a new AC on my Vita.

I've played the whole series on 360 so I'm not ready to switch, but I certainly wouldn't mind a little AC spin-off action on the Vita. I'd be happy with just a port of the multi-player on the cheap, really.

Exactly... I've played the others on the xbox so I am not going to switch now.. but if there is something that makes the game different I'm all in.

More fuel for the rumor fire: http://gamestatics.c...-brand-details/

•Its out same day as Asassins Creed 3 (oct30)
•Female assassin named Aveline of mixed heritage (French/Black)
•Looks like same time period as AC3
•Ubisoft sofia is developing
•Takes place during 1765-1780 in the period between the end of the french and indian war
•One of the bullet points is that it’s “true AC gameplay”
•Will not connect to Desmond
•Will have “multiplayer specifically tailored to the vita experience”
•”The game has been released as a propaganda tool by Abstergo,who want players to experience a gray area of the Assassin/Templar conflict as an assassin rather than a templar”
•Aveline’s mentor is an escaped slave named Agate,leader of the assassins in New Orleans
•Wildlife like alligators “wait on the banks of the swamp or hide beneath murky waters”
•Liberation will also take players across the Gulf into Mexico”
•Game will take place in “Large gameplay areas,you can run,climb,fight,and explore the entirety of New Orleans without loading a new area.”


If true, then AWESOME!. Since I haven't followed the series on consoles I'll likely cancel my PS3 pre-order for AC3 and put it on this. I just want a proper, portable AC.

Sounds interesting.

But if it was abstergo propaganda you would think you would be a templar, so thinking dark story? Or am I reading too much into it

LOL, IGN says take it with a grain of salt. Ya know, since UBISOFT won't confirm. Why the crap would anyone go to that much trouble to do such an awesome fake?

Anyone else hoping for a bundle with the PS3 game? Kind of like some retailers did for MLB 12?

That's nice, but I'll be enjoying the game this fall for $40. Not worth waiting 8 months for summer 2013 just to save ~$20 :)

Interesting article on the game:

http://poptimal.com/...e/#.T88oILAfSuJ

"The biggest tease came in the form of a news of a potential crossover with the console version of the game. Capel mentions Aveline will encounter Connor during her story, but wouldn’t comment on it any further."

didn't mean to wait for it to become a $20 GH just saying it'll sell well & become 1. You'll be able to score it for $20 using CAG by years end.

pretty excited for this, any word on pricing for the bundle? If it isn't too steep, might considering selling my Vita and picking this bundle up.

no more than $50 extra depending on what else they throw in could be a DL game + memory.

It's so weird that so many people are expecting a price drop - like Sony is a totally different company than it has been the past 15 years. What Nintendo did with the 3ds was really unusual for this industry and it definitely worked for them as since the price cut they've obliterated every other console with 3ds sales (in Japan).

But as far as Sony goes, the first PSP bundle came out 7 years ago at the same price as the Vita wifi ($250). It was quickly replaced with a bundle where they removed some items ($199), and then it took 2 years after that for a $30 price drop to $170. While Sony could certainly decide to go the Nintendo route, I wouldn't bank on it, especially four months after release and when US/EU sales were better than Japan's (and Japan's picked up last week and are expected to increase with the release of Persona and MGS).

Of course, I'd love a price drop too - the more people that buy these things the better the likelihood that developers would be willing to work on it. Just don't get your hopes up.

fact is: vita wifi for $250, or vita wifi with a game for $250.

make sense? doesn't to me.

My apologies, I totally missed that. Hard to argue with a free game and memory card bundle. bby has the same price for the bundle (albeit "coming soon") if you have the requisite cag boatload of trade-in credit.
