Oh, I'm sorry to hear that you will be missing out on the exclusive ships, missions and characters like that.

Well, I don't want to fight for a release PS4, so I'll get it for PC when it comes out or I'll get it on PS4 in February (when inFamous is coming out).

I'm trying to catch up on the AC series by playing AC III now on PS3 after having played all the others on 360. Had no issue with the other AC games, but in III I feel like I'm CONSTANTLY fighting the interface, fighting the controller, struggling to make it do what I want.

At first I thought it was the DS3 controller instead of the 360 one, but now I think its something else. The damn game interface and controls are too complicated and its frustrating to play. Heaven forbid you walk away from the game for a few weeks, because it took me 20 minutes last night to figure out how to fire my goddamn musket again. I had to look at an online walkthrough to re-learn the controls. Disgraceful.

There are some major bugs in the PS3 version. During a lot of the cut-scenes the characters mouths don't move at all and the game tells you to hit R2 to reload your weapon and that isn't the right key -- it's the Triangle button to reload.

It even shows a big R2 on the screen, but that's not the right key.

The character also doesn't seem to aim the weapon until after you hit the Triangle to fire, which is pretty weird.

All the "exclusives" are usually timed and eventually find their way to PC.

It's looking like an awesome game. I even got suckered into ordering the Amazon exclusive Black Bart Action Figure. (It was $5.00 off if you ordered AC4.)

I'll be getting it on 360 to go along with all the other Assassin's Creed games ive got on 360. Just need to get Watchdogs then I can put the 360 to rest.

I've got them all for the PS3 and I'm getting it for the PS4. Might as well hope for something higher than 720p resolution. I doubt it will happen. These first few games that are on the 360/One and PS3/PS4 will all be last-generation in terms of graphics.

AC3 already looks like Ass Flag on PC. It's gorgeous and that increases my fun.

Sounds somewhat interesting, probably more so than all the others combined, might have to pick the goty version up when it goes on sale. Next Xmas. For the PC of course.
