meh.. Ubisoft has lost a huge base of players with their crappy ports of gaming.

Ghost Recon First Soldier, Rainbow 6 vegas line and so many others.

I lost the love for Ubisoft after the original Ghost Recon in 2000/2001

The Crew looks amazing but Tom Clancy's The Divison... wow. It's about time they made an open world game like that with RPG elements. I'm really looking forward to it.

Stopped caring about The Division after they said only available on Xbox One and PS4. Really enjoyed it too, as it reminded me about a game that I can't remember the name of (think "Soldier" was in the title) that I enjoyed playing and wanted a sequel to.

edit: Remembered the name of the game. It was Freedom Fighters.

The lack of a PC version sucks but for me, it would be one reason to buy the Xbox One or PS4. It would look and run better than my aging gaming PC (Intel Core2Duo E6750, ATI Radeon HD 4870 512 MB).

It's odd that they're not releasing it on PC because the developers, Ubisoft Massive (formerly known as Massive Entertainment), made World in Conflict. And it's a game that would be widely accepted by PC gamers. What kind of PC gamer wouldn't want to play an open-world multiplayer RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world? It's not like they'd make a console port. The next generation of consoles are very much like PCs and this game is being made by a skilled PC development team.

Thanks Ubisoft that was an awesome assortment of games to look forward to in the coming months. I'm glad a stayed up and watched this briefing it was interesting to watch and very entertaining.

Although The highlight of the briefing was Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag. As far as I am concerned the best was left for last... Tom Clancy's The Division stole the show. What an amazing game.

My mouth went dry just watching this. One of the best driving games I have seen in a long time. And yeah it does look ******* wow...

Watching the live briefing now and thank god I have a fast broadband connection, because I'd hate the think how many people are actually watching this on You Tube.

The Crew looks awesome.
