The original Assassin's Creed had its flaws, but it set the wheels in motion for what would become a spectacularly successful franchise for Ubisoft. Today, Ubisoft has announced that those who purchase "day one" copies of Assassin's Creed Revelations on PS3 will also receive a free copy of the original Assassin's Creed for free.

Ubisoft's announcement was somewhat brief and lacking in detail, but it appears that the game will be included on the Blu-Ray disc for Revelations, which might explain why this offer isn't also being extended to Xbox 360 owners. The precise definition of "day one" also isn't entirely clear at this time -- does this mean the first shipment of games to stores, or does it literally have to be purchased on release day?

We've contacted Ubisoft for clarification and will update this story when we have a straight answer for you.
