Trivia

Windows versions

Two different versions of the game were released for the PC: the original retail release which compares to the PS2/Gamecube and other current generation consoles, and a so-called Gamer's Edition only available through online purchases or OEM disks which features the improved models and textures from the Xbox 360 version and allows for even higher gameplay resolutions.

Xbox 360 version

In an interview with BBC News, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot admits the Xbox 360 version is too dark on standard TVs, making it hard to play.

We have a problem on the 360." [...] "The screen is dark on some TVs and it totally changes the experience. When it's dark, you don't see where you have to go.
He also said the team who made the game used certain settings on high-definition TV screens, and it didn't occur that there would be a problem with standard televisions, which are what most people use to play console games. Unlike Perfect Dark Zero, the type of TV cannot be selected in the game, but a fix is in the works.
