Assassin's Creed 2 street date broken, official launch tomorrow

  1. Almost precisely one year to the day after Ubisoft announced a sequel to Assassin's Creed, their promised launch date has been shattered by rebellious retailers. Reports have come in about independent stores selling Assassin's Creed 2 as well as copies of Left 4 Dead 2, hours ahead of the sanctioned release time (tomorrow). This has supposedly caused a reaction from bigger chains like GameStop, who responded by releasing the games early as well -- just as they did with Modern Warfare 2 in some regions.

    Is it just me or do we have an abnormal high number of game related news here? This year we have a lot of new good and/or highly anticipated games. BTW have you guys seen the entire "Assassins Creed: Lineage" movie? It's really good. I hope they make a sequel.

    Just curious Puiu, what do you mean by 'abnormal high'? it is a PC tech site, and gaming is a large area of interest for lots of folks. :)

    Hooray, PC gamers get hosed again.

    Maybe they will use the extra time to implement a real keyboard interface instead of just re-mapping the console controller diamond to arbitrary keys. Here's hoping.

    XBox Controller works pretty well on Windows !

    I'll never go back to keyboard/mouse again - now that I'm in my 40's I suppose I'm a 'casual' gamer so I don't need the 'hardcore' performance of the younger players - casual pickup is good enough...
