The insurmountable, undeniable power of the Blu-Ray is rearing its head again, as we get word that people who purchase Assassin’s Creed Revelations at launch will be treated t a special gift – but only if they buy it for PlayStation 3.
That gift is none other than the original Assassin’s Creed – a game I’ve been rather vocal in my â€¦lack of enthusiasmâ€¦for. It was a terribly overhyped game that under-delivered – promising so much but really only giving 5 mini games set within admittedly well recreated and beautifully rendered cities. Pity about the lack of an actual game. I will say though that the Assassin’s Creed series has progressed in leaps and bounds with each sequel – so it’ll be interesting to load up the first one, just to see how far Ubisoft has come.
I can’t say I’m excited to play through Assassin’s Creed 1 againâ€¦but it’s still better than not getting it free, eh 360 gamers?
Here’s the press release.
