Ubisoft Reveals Assassin's Creed 2 DLC Packs to Arrive in 2010

200°
250w ago - Ubisoft has already started work on DLC for Assassin's Creed 2, with two packs set to arrive on Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's XBox 360 in 2010.

Two DLC plans have been revealed so far, the Battle of Forli (most likely deals with the town being seized by Cesare Borgia in 1499), and the Bonfire of the Vanities (supporters of the church would congregate and burn possessions that were associated with vanity).

For those of you who have finished the game, you know that a couple of main memory blocks are missing. These two DLC packages will most likely fill in those two spots.

No pricing has been announced yet, but Ubisoft has stated that each piece of DLC will be over 1 Gig, so you can expect these additions to be quite lengthy.
 

Amazon Listing Reveals Yakuza 3 is Coming to PS3 in March 2010

100°
250w ago - A few months back it was reported that Yakuza 3 may be making it's way to US and European markets for Sony's PS3 console.

Today, a listing on German site [Register or Login to view links] reveals Yakuza 3 is heading to PlayStation 3 in March, 2010 with a retail price of €62.99.

[Register or Login to view links] attempted to confirm this news, however, their Sega rep simply stated "No comment from me, I'm afraid" so only time will tell.

To quote: "A current listing on Amazon suggests the game may see release in March 2010. The listing is from Amazon.de which would mean it's in Germany.

Previously, the site did have all the PS3 Slim information up a couple weeks prior to a formal announcement by Sony, so this could be another misstep by Amazon.

With Sega hinting at a possible release out of Japan via PSN before the TGS, a Spring 2010 release is quite feasible."
 

Final Fantasy 13 Box Leak Reveals No PS3 HDD Install is Required

400°
251w ago - Today UffSite.net (linked above) has posted a picture of the Final Fantasy 13 box that has leaked, which reveals that no mandatory PS3 HDD Installation is required to confirm previous reports.

Additionally, although the game naturally runs in 720P it includes 1080P full HD for CGI sequences and has no lossless audio for the PlayStation 3 version.

To quote: "Specifically, the back of the box states that the game has No Optional or Mandatory install, only using up 500kb of hard drive space for a save game. This is great news for PS3 owners, and indicates that the game will run as smoothly as the demo did.

The image also confirms that the PS3 version will have super high quality LPCM 5.1 audio and the CGI sequences will be in full 1080p HD rather than the 720p that was feared.

While the game itself does run in 720p, this means the FMVs on PS3 will be of the highest possible quality. This may be the advantage PS3 will have over Xbox 360, as fitting lossless audio and large FMVs on a DVD will prove difficult."
 

Ubisoft Writer Reveals to OPM that Far Cry 3 is in Development

251w ago - Today Ubisoft scriptwriter Kevin Shortt revealed to The Official PlayStation Magazine (OPM) that although not personally working on Far Cry 3 he knows the team that is and it looks pretty exciting.

To quote: "Speaking at a recent Avatar junket, OPM asked Ubisoft scribe Kevin Shortt if he was working on a third Far Cry title and instead of the usual "no comment", the mag received a refreshing response...

"No I'm not," he replied honestly. "But I know the team are and what I've seen looks pretty exciting." Far Cry 3 confirmed then, just like that.

Other than that blatant response, it's mostly guess work so far on what we should expect from Far Cry 3.

Last year though narrative designer Patrick Redding did mention that a sequel would likely retain an African setting, though he also mentioned Antarctica as a possibility."
