Video: Assassin's Creed Revelations for PS3 Gets Blu-ray Bonus

100°
170w ago - Today Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has shared a video announcing that Assassin's Creed Revelations for PS3 is getting a big Blu-ray bonus!

To quote: We have something exciting to share today: thanks to a special partnership with PlayStation and the incredible storage space offered by Blu-ray discs, we are offering a full version of the original Assassin's Creed for free if you're one of the first to buy Assassin's Creed Revelations!

Supplies are somewhat limited, however, so you'll need to act quickly (pre-ordering might help ;D) in order to get a copy of the original Assassin's Creed included on your Assassin's Creed Revelations Blu-ray disc.





As you know, Assassin's Creed Revelations will see Ezio follow in the footsteps of the legendary Assassin Mentor Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad on a quest to understand the true nature of what it means to be an Assassin.

To prepare you for this journey, we thought it might be a good idea for you to have the game that started it all on-hand just in case you needed a quick refresher on Altair's history.

just copy the files into: /dev_hdd0/game/LV2000000/USRDIR

and the next time you start lv2 patcher you will have 3 new patches to choose from (region a/b/c)

once you patch you don't have to restart your ps3, it works right away! if you restart your ps3 the bd region is set to standard again.

tested & working for me on pal cechcxx machine with 3.55cfw (rebug & kmeaw) using kmeaw's lv2 patcher v9!

this only works for blu ray and nothing else, for dvd the old xregistry trick applies... i didn't code anything, just collected and tested, sources for this can be found here:
