This game was officially announced earlier today, or yesterday depending on where you live. I'm sort of interested in it, but I was sort of interested in the third game and never really actually bought it.. and don't see myself anytime super soon. Still, it's sort of interesting that this new game, titled Black Flag, is apparently going to be focusing on pirates. Is anyone already interested in this game and picking it up? Do people have some issues with it already? Have some theories about what it's going to be like?
I'm personally assuming this is probably a move based on the positive response they got for the naval aspects of the 3rd game. That this one will focus on those sections even more then the 3rd game, though I hardly doubt the typical gameplay will suddenly disappear or anything. I'm sort of curious if this is going to be a trend for them, and history isn't really my strong point so I don't exactly know what time period we will be expecting for this game.
One little interesting bit of information is that the Playstation 3 version is going to have an hour of extra gameplay, which is typical Sony, they always are paying/dealing for something "extra" for their version to make it seem superior. Do you think this will make the Playstation 3 version the "best" of many? If you had multiple consoles, would this be a deciding factor for you on which version to buy?
