It would seem that Jade Raymond, the producer behind Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed
, has become the game's main selling point.
Jade is set to make an appearance at HMV's flagship store on Oxford Street this Saturday, and the Internet is positively a-buzz. Never mind the fact that the British public will have access to new levels from the latest build of one of Ubisoft's hottest Crimbo releases - it's all about Jade.
Given Ms Raymond's programming background and degree in computer science, she can be seen as more than a simple piece of fluff fronting a game. However, you've got to have sneaking suspicion that Ubisoft might not be using her degree as the main point when press releasing the industry regarding her appearance.
Either way, we've got nothing against the lady - after all we interviewed her, right here
regarding Assassin's Creed
. You can also see her in action talking about the game here

Ubisoft tells us, "The presentation is open to all members of the public and will take place at 3pm and then again at 4.30pm on the day. Jade will meet and answer questions from the public and also sign merchandise available for the game."
Crikey! It worked though... Ubisoft has used Jade Raymond to get us to mention Assassin's Creed
