It looks like ubisoft is at it again with 60 mins of "exclusive" content. Many questions arise. is it going to be 15 mins of gameplay like the far cry 3 exclusive gameplay or will it be better?. another question is will this "exclusive" gameplay be on the ps4 aswell ?. assassins creed iv is also having exclusive content but my gut feeling is this "exclusive" gameplay will just be bullshit.

here is the article which says it

Far Cry 3 had exclusive gameplay?

Fine then, I WON'T buy a PS4.

They also announced some crazy special editions. Those seem to be out of control lately.

What the fuck does that even mean? I mean seriously. That is the dumbest sales pitch I've heard in awhile.

It just means PS3 has unskippable cutscenes.

It means there is an extra fetch quest that has no bearing on the game what so ever. But their profit margin is probably a few pennies higher for that version, so they want you to buy it. And they think this will make everyone want that version. Because exclusive content apparently equals more sales? (I have no idea if that is true, just guessing)

I specifically mean the terminology used here. This has been done ad nauseam already with ubi titles on Ps3 most if not all Assassins Creed games ended up getting some throw away mission that was an absolute waste of time but the specific quantification of it being "60 minutes" is just really weird.

It's been talked to death on the bombcast but it essentially boils down to something that would sound ugly if it was laid out bare (e.g. ONE WHOLE EXCLUSIVE QUEST) so they use time convince you you're getting better value. To me I think "60 minutes? barely seems worth it." and sure enough it never is because it's probably not 60 whole minutes and totally unnecessary.

@rabidcentipede: It's fo sho true duder. Timed-exclusives, exclusive DLC yadda yadda whatever. Maybe it sucks but it don't mean it don't work. Just ask the guys rakin in the cash.

Wait, this is coming out on PS3?

#16 Posted by kishinfoulux (2505 posts) -

So it's gonna have a 60 minute mandatory install? Good to know.

Should have just given me a rayman skin. Then I might buy this game.

I don't...what? I don't think you understand how jokes work.

Anyway, this is hell of stupid if Sony's exclusive content isn't on both of their platforms.

ubisoft has confirmed it is coming to ps4....."We can confirm that customers who will purchase Watch_Dogs on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will be able to download 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network after the game’s launch," a Ubisoft spokesperson said in a statement provided to VideoGamer.com this morning. "As of now, we have no more details to share." so i guess it will be exclusive from uplay -_-

Does this mean if we can beat the exclusive content in 30 minutes, we can sue them for false advertising?

There was a piece of news here on Giant Bomb that mentioned this, like a month ago.

Never mind, it was AC like @chavtheworld said. Guess 60-minute exclusive gameplay is the new black.

#23 Posted by Cameron (607 posts) -

I assume this is meant to sway people away from the 360 version? I'm still going to get it on PC if it's any good.

#24 Posted by jiggajoe14 (820 posts) -

Wait what was the Far Cry 3 PS3 exclusive content? I really need to move out from under this rock & build my own pineapple house apparently.

#25 Edited by Slaegar (739 posts) -

The 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay is all extra loading times since you bought the shitty old version.

#26 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

How do you even measure gameplay like that? Is there going to be a timer to enforce this?

#27 Edited by Brodehouse (10125 posts) -

@Video_Game_King

In the same way you say that BioShock Infinite is about 10 hours long, or Limbo is 2.5 hours or this piece of DLC is about 90 minutes long.

#28 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

@brodehouse:

In that it's an estimate and years of design give you a good idea of how content translates into time (at least within certain genres)?

They put three chimps in a cage with an unlimited supply of food, water, and consoles with the content installed, then see how long it takes for a chimp to beat the content.

I think I can pass on 60 minutes to enjoy a better version of a game.

#31 Posted by erikalui (21 posts) -

I guess 60 minutes also would be quite less and would we have to pay an extra amount for only 60 minutes or is it all included already. I hope they give what is mentioned here. I’ll need to buy PS3 for this.
