Is the PS3 going to delay Assassins Creed?

After all the recent ongoing bad press about the PS3 I was starting to feel bad for it and was thinking about having a PS3 appreciation day… It seems like I may end up doing that after seeing yet another bad news story about the PS3.

A local gaming blog has written an article talking about the theoretical possibility of the PS3 delaying Assassins Creed. Seriously hit the link and read it before continuing….

Is AI the PS3’s Achilles heel? Is “Next Gen” for Sony just graphics and physics?

Granted it is self acknowledged flamebait that I generally would not post… nah that’s a lie it’s an original article posted by a local gaming blog of course I would post it 🙂

Anyway back to the point, this is not the first time that these rumours have been mentioned…

1UP headlines its story “Assassin’s Creed AI better on 360?” and even the PlayStation Universe said

The response of the A.I. crowd to your actions towards a person is far from amazing or believable

So is this Sony’s dirty little secret? Is the big bad PS3 just not very smart or are we going to keep blaming it on lazy developers and Microsoft paying off the media?

The Wii is for fun, the PS3 could be all brawn and the 360 is just your average Angelina Jolie…

Oh if you have any comments about Angelina please leave them here, all other flaming comments can be left through the link below 😉

    Cant Sony just get an AI-add-on-USB-card for the PS3 to stop it delaying games?

    can’t developers just release the 360 version first while they battle with the PS3? PS3 came out over a year after the 360. Sony fanbois are used to waiting for a “better product”.

  • Ruslan

    I honestly hope Sony is dishing Epic with lots of molaa to get UT3 out in their exlcusive month. It would be a bad move to have another big game delayed due to SDK issues.

  • LazySAGamer

    I think the big problem is that GTAIV and Assassins Creed used to be PS3 exclusives. Releasing to the competitors machine first is unthinkable…

  • Milesh Bhana ZA

    how so ? They are no longer exclusives, so it’s fair game. Besides, if Rockstar were to say, “Sorry Sony we’re releasing GTAIV on the 360 first”, it’s not like Sony can say “well screw you, you can’t release GTAIV on our platform”. Rockstar/Ubisoft have them by the short and curlies. They can do whatever they want.

    This is a lot of bull.

    AI is a computer program. The PS3 and Xbox can’t think for themselves, they must be programmed to think. If a computer can’t ‘think’ for itself, there is nothing wrong with the hardware, it is the software to blame – and who writes the software?

  • Ruslan

    The thing in our society is that the MAJORITY of consumers will want a game to be out regardless of the MINORITY in the same gaming bracket. Rockstar & Ubisoft should release these games to the rest of the folks who are not dependant on SDK issues causing delays.

    They will loose more money from lost sales during the Xmas season than from a lawsuit from Sony.

  • Ruslan

    @ Baba – well if the hardware cant handle the software then who’s fault is it? 😉

  • Lawnmower ZA

    MMMMMMM Angelina Jolie

    @Ruslan

    Yeah I get your point. But it falls flat on its face when you consider that power wise the 360 and PS3 are very comparable (unless Sony can prove otherwise). The hardware architecture might differ, but that is where the SDK is suppose to make things easier for the programmers. If you get a shitty SDK (PS3), it might be harder to program certain elements of a game, like AI, but not impossible.

  • Ruslan

    I think Sony has till Xmas 2007 to fix what their SDK is missing or else highly antecipated titles will get affected. Honestly 2007 only saw Ninja Gaiden Sigma as a worthwile next-gen title. I hope UT3 doesnt get delayed as I am keen to try it out prior to the X360 version.
