Only in Japan: Assassin’s Creed is only on the 360

    acjp.jpgUbisoft is launching Assassin's Creed this week. Meanwhile Japan has to wait until November 29 to try it out, but unlike the multiplatform release in North America, Ubisoft only has a date for the Xbox 360 version. The Playstation 3 release is probably still coming out. It’s not like the box art has the “only on Xbox 360” stamp or anything.

     

    I find news this rather interesting since Assassin's Creed was previously believed to be a Playstation 3 exclusive and it's made by a western company. Now in one territory the tables are nearly turned, Assassin's Creed is Xbox 360 only in 2007. Perhaps, this has something do with the title getting slapped with a CERO Z rating. Microsoft embraced 18+ CERO Z titles on the Xbox 360. In fact the Xbox 360 has by far the most CERO Z games compared to the main three systems (Wii/PS3/Xbox 360). Maybe Ubisoft feels that this is their target demographic and if this is the case the Xbox 360 is doing a decent job at carving out a niche of its own.
