Online Petition For Assassin's Creed PSP Reaches 23,000 Sigs
It was one of the most impressive games of the year, and we remain big fans of Assassin's Creed. The stealth/action game offered a finely honed and borderline revolutionary experience to all next-gen gamers, and we're certainly hoping that Ubisoft is primed for a sequel. The game enjoyed excellent sales success, so perhaps it's inevitable...
But what isn't inevitable is a PSP version of the stellar game. The size and scope of the title could prove challenging to transport to the handheld, but we have no doubt that Ubisoft could manage the job without losing much in the way of immersion. Clearly, there are many gamers out there who believe this sentiment as well, because an online petition is attempting to make this dream a reality. We noticed when the petition first went up, and today, we were reminded by a reader that the petition now has over 23,000 signatures! Here's the petition's description:
"We, PSP (Playstation Portable) owners would like Ubisoft to release their immensely popular new IP; Assassin's Creed on the PSP.
Considering the success that Assassin's Creed has seen on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, we feel it is a slap in the face for PlayStation Portable fans to see the Nintendo DS getting Assassin's Creed in early 2008. If this is the kind of treatment Ubisoft plans to show its loyal PSP fans in the future, than i for one will go elsewhere for my gaming needs. Hopefully Ubisoft follows in Capcom's footsteps and realizes that its fans are important. Not only is Assassin's Creed possible on the PSP but it will be a great success as a portable game. Furthermore, the PSP has the processing power to recreate the Assassin's Creed universe in all of its glory. Considering all of the assets are already in place to be used, this is an opportunity for Ubisoft to demonstrate what a great company they are. That they too care for their fans. So please, bring Assassin's Creed to the PSP."
Okay, PSP owners, sign away! Maybe Ubisoft will take notice... It has worked before.
