One of the few things that we can be sure about at the upcoming E3 is that Sony will spend time hyping the Playstation Vita, in this week’s Shockcast we even discussed rumors of a possible deal with OnLive. In all the hubbub a very real and very big release may have been overlooked, an Assassins Creed release for the struggling handheld.
However some enterprising internet slueuths have dug up that online retailer Zaavi.com has started offering pre-orders for Assassins Creed III for PS Vita with a release date of October 31st. Is it a hoax or something real? Amazon slips up and gives us ahead of schedule release dates all the time, but they’re a much larger and more reliable retailer.
Releasing a big title like Assassins Creed 3 for the tiny handheld would be a new and interesting move. How would the console handle the game’s mechanics? If it is true, you can be sure we’ll hear all about it at E3, and Dualshockers will have up to the minute coverage for you, so be sure to come back once things get started.
