Been there done that, 3 times is my limit Ubisoft, you and your bullshit copy protection can rot in hell. For me XIII was the PC game that made me wonder why I even bothered buying their worthless crap on PC, 2 weeks after the game released the pirates had a improvised DVD version of the game, with no copy protection, that didn't require disc swap, nor did it require a disc in the drive, while me and lots of other people at that point were just beginning to get the runaround from Ubisoft about why the game we purchased from them kept crashing to desktop.

Blockbuster. The way the game is structured, they would need to do create new content for the demo, or it would be a HUGE demo file.
Well, they could just stick the first city in the demo, and let you run around that with a time limit. The Crackdown demo comes to mind. It's a huge open world sandbox game, just like AC, and it had a great demo. They just sectioned off part of the world. Seems like that would be even easier with AC, since the cities are already separate. Just put the player inside the city walls, and close the door. Or use the force field type of walls that are already in the full game (before you gain full access to an area).
I think they are just lazy, heh.
I played the game at my friends house, but not long enough to know whether I wanted it or not. He won't let me borrow it, though, to find out, the bastard (I hope he reads this).
Let me get this straight... this game, which runs on the 360 with a paltry 512 megs of RAM, requires 2 fucking Gigs on a PC? 3 fucking Gigs recommended?
Telefrog touched on a good point... the PC is running more background shit than the 360, but still, this is just ridiculous. I'm fortunate enough to have a rig that should manhandle this game quite nicely, but horsepower on hand or not, these specs are pure comedy.
