Welcome to the E3 2011 Ubisoft Press Conference Discussion!

Hello my fellow Giant Bomb-ers! Unless you have been kidnapped by pirates with no TV, phone or Internet access, you know that E3 2011 is upon us. Going with tradition, each of the major three platform companies along with a few of the biggest publishers will be giving press conferences to discuss the past, present and future of their company and the video game industry as a whole. To make the Giant Bomb community more orderly and easier to navigate, we have created an official "sticky" thread for each of the press conferences. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of everyone's general feelings/opinions/thoughts of the Ubisoft press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is solely for the general discussion of the Ubisoft press conference. What does this mean? Well...

  • Only discussion of the Ubisoft press conference is allowed. Please keep discussion of the other press conferences in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals? Do so in other threads.

Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Ubisoft press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Specific Announcements

Naturally with any E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements that you would like to discuss with your fellow users in the Giant Bomb community. We certainly welcome this enthusiasm and drive. However, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the Ubisosft press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this in our E3 2011 and You! thread tutorial.

Game Forums

As with specific announcement, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. Instead, we direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums(again, you can learn more about this in the aforementioned E3 2011 and You! thread). Don't forget, please don't overload the Ubisoft forum with discussions of individual games. Breaking either of these rules will also result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Some Ubisoft press conference related forums you might want to use:

* Newly Announced

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during the week of full throttle shenanigans knows as E3, the normal rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply. You can update yourself on the forum and wiki rules by visiting the Giant Bomb FAQ thread. In there, you can learn about all of the rules and proper instructions for the forums and Wiki. The sequence of punishments for breaking these rules still apply as well.

Live Streams

You can watch the Ubisoft press conference on G4 channel or on the following live streams:

I don't think it's as good as some people make it out to be, but you should definitely play it. Do not delay!

I agree, though Brotherhood has gotten quite cheap so I shall be picking it up soon.

There is one thing I am looking forward to seeing at Ubisoft; Rayman Origins. I have seen nothing of that game since they announced it last year

Oh really? I watched E3 2009, but I guess I don't remember him then. All I remember is that he wasn't all that good last year.

It's worth watching if you like to facepalm or laugh your ass off, depending on your mood.

@Anwar: That was when that teaser was released but there was nothing on the game since then so everybody thought it was canceled. However, Ubisoft said they canceled a bunch games but they said Beyond Good & Evil 2 (& I Am Alive) was not one of them.

Agreed. Loved what they did with Brotherhood, very excited to see which new features Ubisoft implement.
