Rumor: Ace Combat 6 Flying to PS3 In 2008?

This rumor comes from Playstation 3 magazine PSM3. PSM3 is part on online gaming website CVG.

In their feature "2008 year of the ps3" I noticed something interesting.

Among the games listed one poped out the most, Ace Combat 6 with this written below:

"Japan's favourite dogfighting series returns with a new made-up war, a brace of superweapons, online co-op and a custom controller for the superfans."

Could this be a miss print even though there is a picture and writting to go with it or do they know something that we don't and that Namco will be annoucing this for the PS3 soon.

Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. (Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, PS3)

its obvious that Ace combat will come soon to the PS3 wether its 6 or 7, but the actual question is, is it a good port or a bad port?
sonarus  +   2919d ago
wasnt this already confirmed about the same time eternal sonata was. The site revealed it by accident or maybe it was esrb or sumthin.
White-Sharingan  +   2919d ago
no, if im correct the site only listed Katamari and Eternal Sonata, not Ace Combat.

but seriously who didnt see this coming? Ace Combat was always a PS series, its probably timed exclusive.

I personally hope it follows Ridge Racer style where 360 gets Ridge Racer 6 and PS3 gets Ridge Racer 7. I played AC6 on the 360 and while the gameplay was fun, I didn't like the story that much.
masterg  +   2919d ago
Please don't make number 6 for PS3.
I played it on my 360 and it was awful. The graphics were so undetailed. If they're gonna make one it should be a new one with true next gen graphics.
gta_cb  +   2919d ago
hopefully it will be a good port, my brother has it for his Xbox 360 and i must say its a pretty good game, gameplay and graphics

There better off making a new version then a port for the ps3.

Ace Combat is a Playstation franchise lol.

Its the other way around.

Its like FF comming to the 360 first then saying Xbox lost another one. lol

Don't get it twisted
Ace Combat 6 was first announced as a multiplatform title, then became a timed exclusive for the 360. Then the PS3 version just went off the radar, and now it's back again.
Kain81  +   2919d ago
The developer said
that they will be a PS3 version but later.

General Pinky, sigh. An Ace Combat is coming to the PS3. You cannot deny that. Ace Combat 6 sales were not to snuff on the 360 to begin with. This article is probably a typo, but an Ace Combat will come out on the PS3.

There is no quality control in gaming journalism.
I wouldn't be surprised if its just some guy going on hunches he found on n4g.

Did you even check the source? It's a scan from PSM3!

Predator is a great contributer and he won't post stories like that Ico rumor.
mugoldeneagle03  +   2919d ago
Probability is pretty high
But I wont be interested.

I never really got into flying/airplane games as it was. Warhawk was my first, and last.

I'm sure this is good news for the fans of the series though. If it's true.

PS3 Hands down
Its a true playstaion franchise and it has did so so on the will do better on ps3 but not much better..I guess we will w8 for DMC sales to see...worldwide
Dannagar  +   2919d ago
No Surprise
Though this was mentioned last year that Ace Combat 6 was a timed exclusive, it should be no surprise that the Playstation 3 gets another Xbox 360 hand me down.
MikeGdaGod  +   2919d ago
"the Playstation 3 gets another Xbox 360 hand me down"
i thought it was the other way around......GTA4, DMC4, Ace Combat, Resident Evil.....i didn't know those were originally Xbox titles.

you should just be happy you get SOME playstation games and keep your mouth shut. you make yourself sound foolish.
Dannagar  +   2918d ago
With the exception of Devil May Cry 4,none of those games have been released and they will be released at the same time as Xbox 360. They certainly can't be handed down if they are released as the same time. However if you are referring to the franchises starting life on a Playstation system, you are only halfway right. Because most of you Playstation fans aren't real gamers and have no clue as to the origins of the games made popular by Playstation. I'll educate you. Grand Theft Auto started life on the PC and Not Playstation. Did you think that GTAIII was the first one? Grand Theft Auto Part one and Two were later ported to Dreamcast and Playstation. Resident Evil has always been a multi platform game. It was also released on Sega Saturn and PC. Tomb Raider was also Multi platform but was made popular by Playstation. Metal Gear started life on a computer released in Japan called MSX2 home computer. It was later Ported to the NES. Final Fantasy started Life on the NES. Many of you Playstation Fans are under the illusion that Sony brought you all those franchises you enjoy but the truth is that most of the games you love on your Playstation were brought to you by Third party supporters such as Konami, Namco or Capcom. Had another system been popular during that time frame, those games would have still been released but on another system.

When I refer to the Playstation 3 getting Xbox 360 Hand Me Downs, I'm talking about games (not Franchises)that have already been released on Xbox 360, that are well past their financial viability, after months or years are now being ported or handed down to Playstation 3.

However you do have a valid argument if you want to say that franchises are being handed down to Xbox 360. Watch your words because a large percentage of the Franchises made popular on Playstation actually started life during the PC or the 8 and 16-bit era.

I never expected this in a million years! / sarc
Really is anyone surprised?
bootsielon  +   2919d ago
The question isn't if it will
It is "When?". Same goes for any "japanese exclusive" that Xbox 360 could ever get. Not gonna happen, Microsoft.
jackdoe  +   2919d ago
Pretty obvious. AC6 sales weren't that great to begin with, much like Eternal Sonata/Trusty Bell. I just hope they make Ace Combat 7 with a much more sci-fi story rather than port AC6. PS3 owners aren't known for liking one year old ports. AC6 had great gameplay and some pretty nice visuals, but I didn't really like the story in the game. But in all honesty, while an AC is coming to the PS3, I believe this is a typo on PSM3's part.

yea, i would like to see them go a bit sci fi, like Ace Combat 3, brethe some new life into the franchise, not to mention I wanna see big dogfights online through dedicated servers.
Ju  +   2919d ago
I don't really care if its a port or not. I want it, if possible in 1080p. Do AC6 or a new one. Doesn't matter. Just make it happen, Bandai.
Blabbermouth  +   2919d ago
They would be pretty stupid not to port or make a Ace combat for PS3 considering how popular the series is in Japan and now that PS3 is gaining more ground now.

Moment Of Truth
Sound good i always wanted to buy this.. im a big fan of air combat games but not many can deliver this gen.. crimson skies cannD, Lair got terrible reviews, Starfox (my fav) is not made yet, rogue squadron MIA.. This game going to PS3 would cure my hunger for an air combat game.. until Starfox for Wii comes out..
jackdoe  +   2919d ago
You could always get Star Fox for the DS. Pretty fun game.
GIJeff  +   2919d ago
isn't as bad as people think it is. If you can make it to the second or third level, you should have the controls down, if not, perhaps you've got down? either way its a good game that should AT LEAST be rented by PS3 owners in search of something fun and original.
meepmoopmeep  +   2919d ago
i've never played AC
but my friend is really into it. hopefully it's not a crappy port and the devs work hard in re-coding it for the PS3 architecture

Another exclusive lost by the xbox 360 along with Left 4 Dead and many more to come.lololololololololololoolo lllll.

its not even confirmed so i would keep my mouth shut.i wouldn't be talking about loosing exclusives,cuz that what sony knows how to do best.
JasonPC360PS3Wii  +   2919d ago
360 didn't lose Left 4 Dead, you just wish it did.
and we gained Frontlines Fuel of War. Now stop wet dreaming over our games, your getting goo all over the place and it's nasty.
MaximusPrime  +   2919d ago
@ravinshield : Rumor of PS3 Lost Planet came true. So no doubt that Ace Combat 6 will come to PS3. Ace Combat is more popular on Playstation even before xbox came on the planet.
Bzone24  +   2919d ago
So since one rumor comes true, they are now all true? I heard a rumor that Sony was going to be getting out of the video game business in late 2008. Guess it's true also.

I'm not saying it's not going to PS3, but your argument on why it's true is stupid.

It was never an exclusive. It was ALWAYS a timed exclusive on 360. We knew it was going to the ps3 before it launched on 360. You are way out of touch with this game to not know that.
Kain81  +   2919d ago
I would say no
cause Ken Kutaragi works for Namco^^
Oh i must say that sony/namco has a Jointventure and Ken Kutaragi is the Chief of that, they make only PS3 games and i Think that his Company will show something for PS3 too (and i Believe that Ken Kutaragi works for middleware for PS3)
I must look what his company called
jackdoe  +   2919d ago
It is called Cellius. And technically, Ken Kutaragi works for both Namco and Sony. They were supposed to show off what they were doing this year... Also, as a side note, I find it interesting that even though Bandai Namco and Sony are joint venturing this company, last year, Bandai Namco made two of their lead franchises (Ace Combat and Katamari) 360 exclusive. Seems to kind of conflict with the mission statement of Cellius("To take away market share of games from Microsoft and Nintendo"). Really, really odd IMO.

I just gave a spin to Ace combat x for psp and was hooked on the gameplay a Ps3 game would be awesome.
heyheyhey  +   2919d ago

this was confirmed ages ago- AC6 was always a 360 timed exclusive
VampHuntD  +   2919d ago
No news here
At least not to me, wasn't AC6 already confirmed long long ago as a timed exclusive? I've been avoiding buying the 360 version for just that reason so if I'm wrong I'm going to wait out this "rumor" before jumping on the 360 version.
darkside  +   2919d ago
nicely done!!
We seen what AC6 did for the xbox360 in Japan for the first couple of weeks. When this Comes out for the PS3 it's going to move systems for month to come. Got to say the Japanese love their AC a lot.

PS3 + AC6 = Big Win in Japan!
crinale  +   2919d ago
Even though it is a rather mediocre title, it sure will have a impact
in Japanese market. It is one of those franchises originally born at
Playstation platform.
Munkeh111  +   2919d ago
I really hope that this will come soon
niall77  +   2919d ago
AC6 on 360 didnt do to well in japan.
porting to the ps3 would make sence
Kain81  +   2919d ago
it didnt do well in worldwide too
on xbox360
DJ  +   2919d ago
That's pretty cool, and expected.
Quite a few 360 exclusives have gone multiplatform lately, and I'll probably try to check this one out since I loved Ace Combat 4. Hopefully they improve the graphics though. I saw the demo kiosk for this game, and it while the clouds and atmosphere looked great, the city still reminded me of the PS2 series. Hopefully they do what they did with Lost Planet and actually upgrade some of the geometry.
MaximusPrime  +   2919d ago
i hope it is true.

I prefer using PS controller to handle flying the plane. it will be awesome if SIXAXIS motion will be supported.
Ju  +   2919d ago
Yes, motion controller could work. I just got Blazing Angels 2 recently, and it works well there (not so much in the first version). The other title with good motion flight control is Lair, but we know how that ended. I don't like it in Warhawk, but it should work great with AceCombat. I'd be curious how that arcade stick would work, which was bundled with the 360 version, once.
TwissT  +   2919d ago
If the 360 of Ace Combat 6 sold like hot cakes in japan just imagine the ps3 version, HOT DAMN!
tk  +   2919d ago
So what is new?
It was always expected that it would be a timed exclusive. Due to poor sales, they will most probably skip to version 7.

Come on... bring it on.
JasonPC360PS3Wii  +   2919d ago
I never played this
Is this game more arcade or flight sim?
JasonPC360PS3Wii  +   2919d ago
^^^I Asked a question MR Phantom disagree troll^^^
Show yourself you freaking coward. I know my name says 360 at the end of it but my question is still legit.

Damn coward.

It's an arcade game that's
built like a simulator. You get all the fancy features that come with flying a plane, but with none of the hassle. It's pretty sweet dude, you should download the demo and try it out.
Darkiewonder  +   2919d ago
Most likely true
When have any of the NB games that went 360 "Exclusive" stay exclusive?

It'll most likely be Ace Combat 6.5. Get the game the 360 have + all the DLC as well extra missions.

But this game should have been on ps3 in the first place.

Well told the 360 fan boys it was coming and I got banned now I am prove correct.
