You're off your rocker. I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles and I bought Assassin's Creed 2 for PS3 with no regrets. It's exactly the same game, it just came down to my preference for the DualShock style controller (it's just a preference... I've been using this controller since the 90's, I'm still not as comfortable with the 360 control pad). I just simply can't believe that anyone would think this game is so inferior on the PS3 that they would buy a second console just to play a different version of it. If you were not playing the two games side by side, you'd never know that the two versions were not absolutely identical. Most analyses that I have read of the two versions say that the only differences are perhaps an extra second or two in the PS3 version's loading times, and a couple extra torn frames. Most don't even mention the framerate being different. These differences are very minor and would not even be noticeable if you were to play one version one day and the other version the next day. Like I said, buying a whole new console so you can play the other version of this particular game is totally irrational.
I completed Assassins Creed 2 on the PS3 and had no issues with frame drops. It ran smoothly without any issues and it was beautiful. I also own a Xbox 360 so I can play exclusive titles like Alan Wake, Mass Effect, and Gears of War. Your decision to buy a console should be based on the type of games and exclusives released not on a multi platform title that usually has only minor differences or some framerate issues.
dude chill man your talking about frame rates .... wow a little frame rate isnt going to mess up your gaming experience so chill dude the ps3 version isnt going to suck neither will the xbox version either.
im not sure why the fanboys keep going on about how an inferior system that still uses dvd media to play games can even talk about which system is better. Regardless- ac2 was perfect on my ps3 and brotherhood will be the same. already have my copy reserved.
I've just erased my posts. I wish I could erase whole discussion but can't be done.
@realgamer/ your word is total b.s. If you don't own freaking XBOX and never played a AC2 on Xbox, don't even tell AC2 is better on PS3 than Xbox. I tested myself on both consoles and Xbox version is definitely better on keeping frames steady.
Of course, AC2 is very playable in both consoles. I played all through AC2 and got Platinum trophy. It was little painful but I got through it. However, the reason why I purchase a console in the first place was not to worry about the low frame rate and frame drops on PC games. PC games need high-end graphic cards in order to play full resolution with full options.
I thought, I didn't have to worry about all of that by purchasing PS3, but some of the games are showing low frame rates and frame drops like PC games running in mediocre graphic cards. Little disappointed.
It is just my own standard and maybe not apply to yours, but I want to play games smoothly. And I believe there are people who may consider this as a big a deal. Well, I think I have to blame my eyes for it then.
Since UBIsoft demonstrated AC3 with PS3 console in E3, I'm little relieved now. I think UBI found a way to solve some problems with PS3 version and happy to show the results to consumer. Maybe not, I don't know..
Anyway, I still prefer PS3 over Xbox. I'm not here to argue which console is better or worse. I just want developers make a games with same quality for the consumers.
If you want AC3 on PS3, go buy it. It is just one guy opinion.
i played it on ps3 got my platemum and had no trouble. i did get stuck one time but who cares about one time out of the 30 hours of gameplay. i saw my friend play in on the xbox he got stuck in same spot. lol it didnt look any different though. its a great game no matter what console u get it for just enjoy it
i own both systems and ive played AC2 on both systems i havent noticed a drop in the framerate at all maybe theres something wrong with your ps3 do all the games you play on your ps3 have a framerate drop try it on another ps3
Fyi, this isn't AC3, according to Ubisoft. It's just like a "part 2" of AC2; they said they'd do a proper AC3 in a few years, not wanting to spoil the franchise by releasing a new one every year (a la Call of Duty).
If you're so worried about quality, then why don't you try to support console exclusive games? Seriously, the real killer of games is that developers can't use a console to it's fullest potential if they can only come as far as each consoles' shortcomings. And for someone that has both systems, then that shouldn't be so much of a problem, should it? For everyone else, I'll admit it would suck a bit, but if they cared that much about a game, they'd go and buy another system, wouldn't they?
truth is, whenever there is a multiplatform game available, it gets screwed on the ps3, and ac2 was screwed pretty badly. I noticed a pretty big difference in framerate , and it was very annoying on the ps3, but that did not stop me from enjoying the game :)
