EA has confirmed to VideoGamer.com that upcoming parkour-inspired first-person game Mirror's Edge is still coming out on Xbox 360 and PC, despite a report today on the UK-based semi-official blog ThreeSpeech that claimed it was PS3-exclusive.
I don't think anyone expected it to be PS3-exclusive.
it was a little strange...Sony showed the trailer at their SGD on tuesday...of which was apparently the only multiplatform title to get the big screen treatment...iirc... then the threespeach stuff...who knows...but yeah, its EA...there is very little chance of it not going to every platform under the sun...
Mitchell...nope EA is too greedy for that.
such reports mostly point out that sony may actually being in a offer to dice getting the game as an eclusiv, we will see what the future brings, maybe a timed exclusiv. such blatant errors made by official blogs/sites mostly have some true background to it
I would be very happy if Mirror's Edge suddenly went PS3 exclusive but it's not gonna happen guys. It was always a multi-platform game.
Well, it would have certainly been smarter of sony to go with Mirror's Edge as exclusive rather than Haze. But then again, this is EA and they don't like exclusivities, hehe.
I was wondering this myself.... Went to browse the UK PSStore when I saw this: Gameplay Trailer (HDTV 720p) Description: "Introducing a new PS3 icon - Faith" Made me wonder.
Just checked and you're right. So weird. Still though it's published by EA isn't it? Do you really believe that they'll do a PS3 exclusive?
I'm not saying that, I'm just wondering why the description was written as is.
I'm looking forward to hearing more about it... especially the combat system, specifically the melee.
It does, but I got dizzy just watching the trailer! Maybe I'll get used to it. Maybe I'm just getting old.
this game could be verryyyy coool
.....for now joke EA HAS done exclusives before, but its doubtful at least we can rest easy that the PS3 version will be at least on par if not better than the 360 version seeing as it was running really well in time for PS day and it seems these guys are having an easy ride with PS3 programming
It'll perform better on the 360, as all (UE) titles do. /+flamesuit. Anyway, looking forward to the game, could be a diamond in the rough.
I do not care if it is multiplatform....We all know in our hearts of hearts that this game was developed on the PS3 first then ported to the PC and Xbox 360... You know there will be Sixaxis controls in this game....that actually might work...Come on EA redeem yourself!
i dont mind either as long as its being developed for PS3 first.
I wouldn't be surprised if the footage shown at PS Day was from Xbox 360.
they wouldnt present it then.
I think as someone said before, in all likelihood it was running on a PC
if EA IS MAKING IT THEN I DOUBT THE GAME WILL BE VERY GOOD BUT HOPEFULLY IM WRONG I HOPE EA REDEEMS ITSELF, THEVE BEEN DISSAPOINTING THE LAST FEW TITLES THEY THREW OUT
DICE are developing it, not EA.
"it seems to have been an innocent error on the part of ThreeSpeech" Innocent error my crabhole! This site is known for its disinformation and lies. It was refreshing to hear Major Nelson bring the head of Threespeech on his show and call him out for his lies about Major and the 360 where he admitted that he just put it up to get hits. The fishheads will do whatever they can to say "ITS MINE! ONLY MINE!" "WE ARE BETTER AT EVERYTHING" like a spoiled child. Fail. Keep that in mind the next time a fishhead goes off about R* exclusive this or that.
Now, that'd be pretty cool. Mirror's Edge looks pretty good, but it's mostly because of that amazing blue sky! It wouldn't garner nearly as much attention if the backdrop were cloudy - think about it...
That would be Awesome!
Innocent mistakes are fine, but isn't ThreeSpeech supposed to be semi official? That's a pretty big screw up if they are. As long as Mirror's edge comes to the PS3 I couldn't care less about which systems it ends up on.
Mirror's Edge is undoubtedly being developed by the more superior and developer friendly platform which is PLAYSTATION® 3. The XBox 360 version is surely going to be hindered due to frame rate hiccups and jaggies. One which will not be present on the PLAYSTATION®3 version. $niper
those people in the video where gettin shot and there was NOOOO blood
Ahh so another game 360 will have to claim king for.. Droidstation 420p 360 720p nothing new.. think droids are used to it.
pc version will be different as dice never ruled out pc gamers
I have zero faith in EA. All their games look fantastic, yet play like fingerless pianist. To hell with them! Let's hope DICE doesn't succumb to the evil...
bothersimon, it is also for the PS3. You cant read?
Obviously you can't.. Please show me where I said this was a 360 exclusive? Oh, thats right, you cannot. STFU :) What I am saying is, another 360 game it has to win because it pwns PS3 when it comes to mp games.
The game indeed look good. The gameplay otherwise don't show too much content to make a final judgment over the combat system. Now, if the game its really a exclusive it is good to me even if the game going to be multiplatform as was announce I'm cool but EA game just to suck major of the times... hopefully DICE don't screw up this one.
The whole point of parkour is that you do cool moves - if the game is in first person then you cannot see the cool moves and who gives a crap about the game? Think I will pass unless you can view third-person.
Sweet, i'll pick this up on 360.
The graphics in this game are colorful and vibrant. Yet it still looks quite realistic. The gameplay looks good as well, I just wish we had more videos of the game. I'm looking forward to seeing/hearing more information on this stunning game.
