Not sure how I feel about this. Excited, yet worried at the same time.

New "news" from Ubisoft:

Ubisoft also discussed Project Cafe, and gave us some insight into how 360/PS3 games should be able to easily see adaptations on Nintendo's next console.

"The platform Nintendo is coming with is really a fantastic platform. We think it will be extremely successful. What we see is that we will be able to leverage a lot of the work we do for Xbox 360 and PS3 while we create games for the platform. So we will not have to redo completely the games that we create. We'll be able to use all the capacity the console is giving but also use all the work we do for the other platforms." - Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot

Interesting stuff, eh? So I guess that pretty much confirms all three consoles will be able to handle the same stuff. Not like Cafe will outperform the PS3 or anything, which is expected to me. I expect all three to be the same level.

Bring it on, Nintendo!

Wow I just updated my other thread with this info...

The comment sorta sounds like Cafe is the most powerful yet since the architecture is similar the work can still be moved on over to PS360. I still maintain that Cafe needs to be a decent bit more powerful than PS3. I think it's a bad move in the long run.

The entire point of this console seems to be fixing the mistakes they made with the Wii. The only real ones being tech, third party support (which relates to tech), losing some of the hardcore, and online.

If the point was to improve on the Wii's mistakes yet make the same mistakes over, how does that make any sense?

We could be looking at PS2 to Xbox 1 power comparisons but I still think that's a mistake. Dreamcast to PS2 would be okay. I no longer expect true next-gen but half a gen would be good enough to hold off the others. Unless they don't make powerhouses which they might not, but it seems its all they have.

Very interesting comment indeed though. It does seem to confirm they're within the same range though. Him saying it'll be successful says nothing though. Even if it was an utter POS they'd be forced to say that it looked promising. They also said the same of the Wii as well though.

Yeah, the only time I'd believe a dev's comments of "it will be successful" is if Epic said it about Nintendo's next system.

Yup. It almost worries me when Ubisoft says it'll be successful lol... I just don't trust them that much. As long as they bring us GOOD games and not the shovelware they've become famous for I'm good.

I'm thinking Splinter Cells, Ghost Recons, Red Steel 3, actual Rayman games, etc. I didn't list Assassin's Creed cuz that franchise doesn't interest me in the least. I held off on the first game for so long and then finally got the PC version. It looked so incredibly meh. I heard the sequel was much better but the bad taste of the original was too powerful. Then the series started moving off of an assembly line and it that only added to my turn off-age.

I'd consider giving a major entry another shot, especially since the PC version I played had horrible controls, and it wasn't the supposedly superior sequel.

Still seems like Assassins Creed is a very meh series to me but we'll see.

I don't care about Ubisoft. I only cared about Prince of Persia, but it's gotten stale.
