Only in the "PS3 Exclusive Edition."

The PlayStation 3 version of Assassin’s Creed III will include “60 minutes of exclusive gameplay,” according to an updated box art added to Amazon U.K., which labels the game the “PS3 Exclusive Edition.”

Ubisoft has yet to announce anything on this end. We’ll send over an e-mail for comment.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

Update 4:50 p.m.: A Ubisoft rep has responded to our e-mail: “At E3 2012, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed III will feature exclusive content on the PlayStation 3. We will have more information on what is included in this content at a later date.”

As far as I know, the only exclusive content announced at E3 were cross-system unlocks for Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation through Assassin’s Creed III.

    *sigh* I hate when developers do things like this. I understand why they do it but it doesn’t make it any less annoying :/ why have exclusive gameplay for a game on a particular platform? just have the same gameplay on all systems, means that people who want to buy the game for another system aren’t missing out

      It’s called one company gives more support for the game than the other, or one has more consumers for the game than the other.  It also means that the PS3 better supports what they want out of the game and that if they could’ve made it a PS3 exclusive title without losing too many customers to justify it, they would’ve done it long ago.  The Xbox is a heavily flawed system that was released way too early and still has so many bugs to date that you really can’t find in the PS3 which has better hardware even in it to play games with graphics more like the actually intended ones for most games, vs the Xbox where most games have to be dialed down to work on it.

      Yeah its never made sense.. I didn’t like waiting for Rockstar to release the GTA episodes on the PS3.

    thats great news..AC 3 and AC librathion im gonna buy them fer sure and im glad the ps3 version got an exclusive content 

  • xMCXx

    What does that even mean?
    Extra missions? If so, why not say outright what missions.
    Anyway, it’s stupid to do this with multiplatform games.

      MS started the precedent. Slow and steady wins the race my friend. Glad to see devs showing the best system on the market the respect it deserves.

        Ubisoft has been doing this for years, man. It’s nothing new

    Finally, PS3 getting some exclusive content.

    This is not surprising. If I’m not mistaken all but AC1 has had something exclusive for the ps3. AC2 had the weapons that could be transferred from psp game. AC:BH had exclusive missions, AC:R had the original AC on the the disc, and AC3 has the vita content plus this new 60min content. Also I would point out that the ps3 has had quite a few games with exclusive content that 360 didn’t get, but unlike MS who has to make sure u know of this content just to sell their system and games Sony does not mention such content that much, hence the “ps3 gets so little extra content”. Some examples would be Dead Space, Mortal Kombat, Street x Tekken, AC series, Ninja Gaiden 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Star Ocean, and Eternal Sonata just name a few games on both consoles that saw extra content on the ps3.

      I somehow missed your comment when I made mine. You said everything I did in my post, but you said it better. Thumbs up. =)

    They have been doing stuff like this with Assassin’s Creed on PS3 for a while now.

    AC2- Exclusive content for PS3 version when you connect the game with Bloodlines on PSP.
    ACB- Exclusive Conspiracy Missions only on PS3 version.
    ACR- Free copy of AC1 included with the game.

    I think Sal might have already hit the nail on the head. (Content from AC 3 Liberation.)

    Like I said above, they did something very similar with AC2 on the PS3 once before. It makes sense, but then again, it could be more exclusive missions.

      Yeah, this doesn’t surprise me at all.
