Via Ripten's Patrick Steen:
"News coming straight in from Play.com Live in Wembley stadium is final confirmation that Haze will eternally be a Playstation 3 exclusive."
i got to say i didnt see that coming...remains skeptical. I thought this would be out on 360 at the end of the yr latest
Well thats that.
Nostra, you know anything about the new killzone 2 trailer or that's bs ?
Why people get mad about delays is beyond me. Delays are always better for the actual gameplay/graphics/sound.
Appreciate Haze when it comes out, cause now when it comes out it`ll be done.
haze would have been better out last yr when ps3 was lacking games. I am STILL not 100% sold on this game but if i hear good things i will buy. Glad to know its exclusive though as i know a couple of 360 owners who have had their eye on this more that i have and i own a ps3. Maybe this and mgs will whet their appetites a little more till they can't resist the ps3. Even though the game isn't necessarily a WOW kinda game i wonder if they ran into difficulties trying to port to 360 that's why they have been sketchy on the release. Sony hasn't really been promoting this game so not sure they paid for it. If they did they must not care about the money they paid because i would expect more marketing for a ps3 exclusive. Maybe they were struggling with the port and finally gave up lol
I thought it would go to 360 to.I own a PS3 but didn't think for a second it was exclusive. That's a pretty good game in the PS3 exclusive line up.
'Nostra, you know anything about the new killzone 2 trailer or that's bs ?' There is no new Trailer, this was just rumor. =/
What is that noise? Silence. Because no one cares!!
^^ JsonHenry obviously you cared enough to hit the reply link and post a comment.
well there you have it
now it seems sony can afford to concentrate on what they do best....games,gaming and giving us a incredible gaming experience wonder how many more exclusives they are going to snag,this war is just heating up
lol sony didn't make this game so what does blu ray winning have to do with anything
I think he was hinting at the fact that Bluray has won, it would be an ideal choice for the developers to go with the PS3, because the install base is increasing dramatically. Not saying that the Xbox 360 doesn't have a huge install base but, with the momentum Sony is having right now it could certainly be a reality to surpass the Xbox 360 and move closer to the Wii. That was what I think he was trying to get to.
if your going to reply to a comment READ the comment first before you set your fingers to work,friendly advice sony were concentrating on bluray and let a few exclusives slip,now bluray is in the bag its one less thing to concentrate on, so now they can concentrate on getting their game library up with exclusives,just like i said in my earlier comment sonarus its not very hard to understand peace
lol chill dude. I know what you meant. I too am a sony fan. Most of my favourite games of all time are made by sony or sony exclusive. I knew what you meant but i simply didn't feel sony deserved any praise on that particular comment so i wanted you to rephrase. Haze doesn't look like it takes advantage of blu ray and i am not so sure sony paid for it considering the exclusivity has been in question for a long time. Plus sony doesn't really talk about the game. I would expect a lot more from sony if they paid
Whoever wants to target 9M instead of 18M or 22M... then yeah, they'll get all the exclusives.
You see, sometimes it's not even just about sales numbers. In a interview with Dave Doak, one of the main guys of Free Radical. A question was brought up on why did they choose to go with the PS3 as the lead platform (at the time) and he simply replied "The little guys need help too"
So you see, the PS3 at the time was the underdog. And yes, the PS3 only has approx a 10 million userbase, and the 360 has a userbase of about 18 million (not 22 million, don't just pull that number out of nowhere). But the industry is seeing Sony's momemtum fast.
Before, people would say Sony will never beat the 360. It did it in Europe, and easily in japan. Then pepole said Sony will never beat the 360 in N/A. Then so far, they've done it for two months and conveniently Microsoft spews out PR talk about shortages.
The industry is realizing, that the 120 million PS2 userbase still have not converted to the 360. Once playstation branded games like MGS4, GT5, and Final Fantasy is released. Place your bet that the PS2 owners will definitely buy a PS3 just for those specific games. It's already happening.
Look at GT5p in Europe, it already got 1 million pre-orders. For a game that 360 owners like to call a "Demo". Well it's certainly going to be the best selling "Demo" ever. And nobody really needs to worry about the full GT5 sales numbers, it's going to sell like hot cakes anyway.
So you see Jinn, not everybody is short sighted like microsoft in the industry. Some companies, like to plan for things in the future and not blow they're shot in one load.
I think he/she was using Wii for the 22 million and the X360 at the 18 million mark. The sad part is Jiinn can't realize that 9 was passed by PS3 a while back but he/she stopped counting it appears. PS3 is close to 11 million now actually.
Actual global sales estimates. Numbers are in millions of SOLD consoles, NOT shipped. Ending Feb 2008. Wii ~ 21.5 360 ~ 16.3 PS3 ~ 10.1
What is your source for that information Tfur? Do you have a link? I am not being a jerk, seriously curious what source you use.
It's about time someone said it.
Ha that is all
lol dumbox 360s
ok ps3 fans, u got this one. it was a shame xbox didnt have this i must say. it is a shame for us xbox owners. there is no point saying no like some and denie it like some on this site. but i must say it was the same about the gta4 and the dlc. some were saying(kaz and sniper cough cough) that they were getting it aswell saying it was not exclusive to xbox. but wen it was announced that it is exclusive they all started saying that it wasnt needed, i hope no one does it on here.
shame but have fun playing it people who own a ps3. make sure u write a review.
hope it is good gaming.
I can Imagine all the 360 fanboys saying: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOO!" As they weep in tears knowing the fact that another game is not to be on the 360. They're playing their mass effect and and their cod4 games (which I hear is officially better on the PS3). Later on in the future they see Haze being release on the PS3 as an exclusive and they are reaching to buy a PS3 but they still don't want to jump out and play beyond. lol But they'll say: "We have better games!" lol
whats haze?? oh a shooter for ps3 ohh ok cool you ps3 fanboys need something.
As if we needed another wannabe halo/gears of war FPS on the XBOX 360! The PreinStallion 3 can keep it.
That DEFECTIVE LOW POWERED GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME has 0 games for this year
HAZE is just too much for DEFECTIVE BOX 3 FIX ME which can handle cartoon games like GAYLO 3 but only at 640P
what a shame????????
Another lair on the way LoL
I've been playing it for hours, check out my impressions of Pslegion.com when its posted later this evening
Been playing Haze? I was extremely excited for this game before but my excitement has began to wane with all the delay. I fear that they have already shared all their surprises with us regarding the story & the gameplay... had they kept some of those secrets closer to the vest, the game would have been extremely exciting that first play through. It still looks like a very decent shooter at the very least though, so I'll still purchase it in May... hopefully there's still some surprising moments in there for me!
yea i will check them out.
Just give us a quick thumbs up or thumbs down right now...please!?
oh yes ...
But the game was delayed so many times I think it was inevitable that it was just going to stay on the PS3.
well that's weird, i thought ubisoft is sort of like EA, always multi-plat, very strange for them to do something like this
If the Developer (Free Radical) says they will only to it on PS3 the publisher (Ubisoft) has no choice but to comply unless they have any written contract saying so. The great thing about this is this: TimeSplitters 4 in development directly after Haze PS3 release... SWEET!!
u sad little bot
no one is going to say nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
like a little child. wow we dont get are 1001 game. woopy doo oh no
just play ur game
and enjoy it.
to u there is only 1 thing in life and that is a peice of hardware.
so ur comment fan girl is petheticaly stupid.
took u long enough as well for a good shooter.
(r:fom is ok, though it is a bit easy the shooting that is. i am a beginner and i got 20 kills first match. cum on)
but it is wat u like
good gaming everyone
(edit: thats what u sed about the DLC for GTA:4)below)
"Sony must have paid Ubisoft/Free Radical a nice little packet to bag this one."
That must be false, Sony neeever pays for exclusivity.
But really good for Sony, I thought that it eventually would be released on the PC/Xbox 360, but I guess I was wrong.
LOL LOL LOL The BOTS will say: "The game is crap, we don't want it!!!!!" Well, the game is awesome, people playing it are saying that it brings a really fun gameplay to the table. And it looks stunning!!! One more hit to the Almighty PS3!!! May Sony Gods Bless Us ALL!!!!!!!
is extremely suprising, Haze was a game that I thought would definetly go on the xbox360.
From what I've seen the game looks a bit average, but Free Radical has improved the game alot.
We'll see if the game turns out to be sucess or a flop, it could turn out either way from what i've seen.
Okay? Now release the damn game.
I wouldn't be surprised if they delay the game... again, same as home
Good thing I own both consoles. Now if I can just work up the nerve to create a Live account.. back on topic, Haze looks good thus far, especially after the supposed "overhaul".
There's been so much bad news for Nazisoft and the 360 recently! You know what, PIGS? Sometimes King Kaz feels sorry for you. But most of the time.................I just LAUGH at you! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
LOL You are out of this world Kaz!!!! Awesomeness!!!
give him bubbels he rocks
too right there nether gonna get this but calling the microsoft people nazis was a bit harsh
this should help the PS3 take some of the xbox fanbase b4 they buy a 360 ;-)
we all know FPS is what brings in the gold memebers
Care to name a game on PSN thats as wildly played as COD4 and Halo on PSN that is not an FPS?
G T 5 PROLOGUE.
Though I don't have numbers, I seriously doubt Prologue comes anywhere near chose to COD4(PS3) or Resistance/Warhawk.
Asked for an answer, they gave you 2.
GT5:p is out in Japan and the online is very popular. Once released in UK/US, GT5:P will compete with CoD4, though CoD4 may maintain it's spot because it is that good.
Warhawk (Third Person Shooter) would technically qualify as an answer.
I'm a Free Radical fanatic, and I'm going to buy the game, but the delays have completely erased all of the hype for this game.
to get excited about when games are "suppose" to come out. Haze is gonna be awesome, as a Free Radical fan you know this....man. LoL.
Hopefully now that it`s exclusive (for sure) they can utilize the strenths of the PS3.
If that is the case, I don`t mind waiting for it at all.
There's only a month and a half left. As bad as delays seem, they're making a better game for us. I honestly think if they released it in November, it would have definitely gone Multiplatform for sure. It would have been critizied left and right and probably got a 5/10 in reviews. It would have been glitchy and incomplete.
Glad Free Radical knew this before releasing it too early.
that may change should it prove to be a good ip. The die hards may never give it its props.
definitly no props, now that it`s exclusive.
You are right....I dont care.
Yeah, superior multiplatform games right? Your delusional, thanks for the list though, we all have lists ya know?
should make comments in the open zone only. Cummon now, what could you possibly like or contribute sensibly about the ps3 or sony with a one sided/childish name like that. Relevant list by the way............*sigh*
@Gaystation 3 Did you just list every 360 game in 08? I´ll give you "Gears of War 2" that is a sweet game that I'm happy to wake my 360 up for.
i dont think the xbox needs another shooter. correct me if im wrong. anyways, free radical were always a sony dev first and foremost (did they make goldeneye on n64?)
Free Radical was a nintendo developer. Remember, they were a division of Rare Ltd. Before MS bought rare. And yeah, they did make goldeneye for n64
Nice to see someone reply to a comment without defensive, immature ranting. He mentioned the 360 not needing another shooter. That could have opened the door. I liked your response. This Bubb's for you.
Thanks man And yeah, I knew how some people would have taken his statement and I was indeed attempting to halt the possibility of any confrontation. Hell, thanks to confrontations we have an open zone aka the "immature zone" as it is. Which is really ridiculous I think. But I guess it is necessary these days. Oh and + bubble for you too
