Assassins: Creed PS3 Demo at E3 Running on Xbox 360 ?-- Posted by XanTium on May 13 00:04 EST
We don't really have much to back up this story except that it was posted on IGN for a short amount of time:


Ubisoft Montreal revealed its next incredible project, Assassins: Creed, exclusively for PlayStation 3 at E3 this year, much to the delight of Sony console fans and to the dismay of Microsoft consoles fans. Ubisoft officially would not comment on a possible Xbox 360 version.

According to sources close to the company, however, there are potential plans for an Xbox 360 version at Assassins: Creed sometime in 2007. Additionally, Microsoft sources who asked not to be mentioned by name, claimed the demo, hidden behind closed doors at E3, was running on an Xbox 360 using a third-party USB PlayStation controller. The game system was hidden in a stand covered by a sheet. Again, Ubisoft officials would not comment.


Was the article removed because it was false or because IGN got a call from Sony or Ubisoft? Guess we'll never know. Still a funny story to start the weekend ;)

I was under the impression that Ubi at one point said that it is indeed headed to the 360, with the "when" being the only unknown thing.

anyone else been noticing the increase in "reliable sources" at MS who wish to remain anonymous being quoted in the news lately? things like this need to be taken with a grain of salt, as anyone could just make up some random crap and say sources at MS said it. and btw, you can just go willy nilly plugging in any usb controller into a 360 and it magically works, for the same reason you can't just plug a usb keyboard and mouse or a tv card into it and expect it to work.

If they programmed a game do you think they might as be able to program USB controller drivers too?

Regardless, this game looks amazing and I hope that it's headed for the 360 at some point.

...providing they had access to the xbox 360 in a way which let them load a driver.

That functionality was provided on the xbox 1 so it's likely available for the 360 too. Allowing companies to utilize unusual devices is almost a given.

A usb keyboard does work on the 360.

While a ps conroller adapter would not work on a retail 360, it might be possible on dev kits.

I highly doubt this is lagit in the first place.

The entire damn demo was all cgi, anyway.......woopty freekin doo!

i assume you didnt know it was shown "behind closed doors" as playable, otherwise why would a controller be attached at all.

I dont think MS are scare of Sony. Not this E3, for me Sony was a disapointed.
Nintendo and MS had a great E3 this year. To much hype for Sony.
And Tekken6 was much much disapointed from my side. Was looking forward to that game, but after seen it... hmm.........
