Hello; I know that there is a link to submit game information (I found it after posting my last thread), but it is greyed out. I cannot click the link, I thought I'd post here. The WP Assassin's Creed game is fully titled: Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles HD

Sources:
Gameloft page for game
Microsoft Windows Phone Marketplace listing for game

In fact, notice how the actual URL for the GameLoft page uses just assassins-creed, and nothing else. I am sure Eric could expand upon it permanently, but, since most stuff appears to auto-populate, that would explain the short title.
Thanks for the input, futiles. You're right that Gameloft just uses "Assassin's Creed" as part of the URL as opposed to the game's full title. I don't know why, but it is possible that, since it the only AC game made by Gameloft, they just used the base name fo the game; or perhaps Gameloft was just being lazy. The game is, however, an "HD" port of the Nintendo DS game Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles.

As for Xbox.com, there are numerous games that Microsoft shortens the title of when adding it to the API. Some other examples include:
El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron, which the API calls simply El Shaddai (notice that they still use the full title for the downloads)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which is simply labelled as Skyrim (again notice that most of the downloads use the game's full title).

I'm not stating these to be argumentative, but merely to voice a difference of opinion. Whether or not Eric chooses to update the title is up to him. I just wanted to mention it. Thanks for listening (so to speak).

Thanks for pointing this out. You are both right. Ultimately this will be an Eric call but with so many different name variations to games I think the most important aspect of this is to get the Version type right. Seeing as there are two different Assassins Creed WP Games this may have merit though.
