Ubisoft announces UBIDAYS 2008 Paris press event

12:52 PM on 01.17.2008 // Nick Chester

We're not European press, so we weren't at last year's Ubisoft press event, UBIDAYS. It's likely we won't be at this year's event either, but we can slap a mustache on Jim Sterling and try to sneak him in, I suppose. 

Announced today by Ubisoft, the UBIDAYS 2008 press event will take place at the home of "Mona Lisa," Paris' world-famous Louvre museum. According to Ubisoft, last year's event was such a success (note: "UBIDAYS" is now trademarked), they couldn't pass up the opportunity for a follow-up.

"The positive feedback from last year convinced us that this was the ideal way to present our games and to have enriching exchanges with partners who support us year after year," says Ubisoft's Executive Director for Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific, Alain Corre. "We're eagerly awaitings UBIDAYS 2008, which is already shaping up to offer a look at future industry trends and the group's upcoming blockbuster titles."

Said "blockbuster" titles will be revealed at a later date, but plenty of juicy info came out of last year's UBIDAYS, and we're expecting much of the same come May 29 and 29 when the event takes place. 

My fingers are crossed for Ubisoft to finally reveal the new Prince of Persia title, but my money's on at least three games with Tom Clancy's name attached to them. Any Ubi games you guys are looking to hear more about? (A Beyond Good and Evil sequel is too obvious, and is not an acceptable answer.)

UBIDAYSTM Makes A Comeback

Ubisoft® plans second edition of product showcase, May 28 & 29 in Paris

London, COUNTRY – January 17, 2007 – Today Ubisoft announced that UBIDAYS™ 2008 will take place May 28- 29 in the heart of Paris’s world-famous Louvre museum.

Selected European press and business partners will be invited to discover Ubisoft’s new titles and have the opportunity to play the games that will pave the company’s future.

Last year’s UBIDAYS showcased major announcements, notably the launch of the highly successful Games for Everyone line. The 2008 edition promises to reveal similar surprises and exclusive announcements, while at the same time offer a rare opportunity for guests to meet Ubisoft team members and creative talents.

“The inaugural UBIDAYS in 2007 was a big step for us and a calculated bet, given the worldwide evolution of the industry,” said Alain Corre, Executive Director for Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific (EMEA). “The positive feedback from last year convinced us that this was the ideal way to present our games and to have enriching exchanges with partners who support us year after year. We’re eagerly awaiting UBIDAYS 2008, which is already shaping up to offer a look at future industry trends and the group’s upcoming blockbuster titles.”

The list of featured games and event program will be revealed later.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.
