Yeah i saw the message and wondered.... for about 4 seconds and then really didn`t care anyway. This game will not sell systems, its good but in all honesty the only way FR are going to make money is if they Port it to the 360 as well. For those wondering who haven`t played the game it says something along the lines of "4-Player Co-op exclusive to PS3", basically its implying that the online is PS3 exclusive, not the game itself.
Could be anything. Could mean on 4 player split screen exclusive to PS3. But like you said, who cares, I played the demo and that was more than enough for me. GTA will keep me going until MGS so I dont really believe my purchase would be justified from the amount of time I'd probably spend on this game. Might pick it up at a later date or if my firends pick it up and seem to enjoy it. Frankly, Id probably complete it once and that would be that. Still, I'm sure this is going to appeal to quite a few people, especially thanks to that co-op so give it a try before you write it off. Its not to my taste but that doesnt mean it wont be to yours.
Could also mean there is no other 4 player co-op campaign on the PS3 at this time (not counting UT3). BTW: Split screen is 2 player (+2 more online), not 4 way split screen.
Could be...don't really care anymore after playing the demo, Ubisoft have been very lazy with this game, the graphics are OK at best, and the physics are worse than Turok and that game was a pile of crap.
Move along folks nothing to see here.
The demo was created last year, presumably when it was only a timed exclusive.
Who knows, this could be taken in many different ways. The exclusiveness has been emphasised a lot in interviews with Free Radical though.
Whatever if the game is ported or not, Haze isn't good enough to be enjoyed of its port.
I thought the demo was pretty darn good. I'll be picking it up on the 20th.
Agreed Sagria.. I was looking forward to this game until I played the Demo. Poor graphics, the absurd 'nectar' gameplay mechanic thats been done about a million times now... and perhaps some of worst and corniest voice acting since the ps1 resident evil days.
This game is just average... but it is not COD4... COD4 still way better..
It's been 100% confirmed that Haze is PS3 exclusive. So this article is lying.
Keep the crap game on the crap ps3 that where it belongs
like vampire rain? that was was super crap designed for the 360, the sales were so low even with the myth of the "superior" fanbase that the devs decided to port that crap to the PS3, so don't talk about crap that the 360 have a ton of crap.
I dont need a blurry FPS.
Agreed, the 360 has more than enough quality fps, this would be "just another game" to add to the extensive and ever growing catalogue
Vampire Rain... Haze.... Jesus... what a horrible swap for everyone. No one wins here.
It is a pretty solid FPS but the whole problem is that there are so many other game that are coming out or came out last year that are better. I think that is why they kept pushing it back, trying to get the timing right. Personally i think they should of shipped this game last month or in feb, after DMC4 there wasn't much so i just went back to playing COD4. I like it so I might buy it if I want to take a break from GTA IV.
as a gamer, i like all the gamer enjoy every games (good or bad). It's not upto par with kz2 or cod4 but co-op is really fun. There are definately lotsa fun factors in the game. and I am buying 2 copies, one for me and one for my brother. I hate split screen. I like my whole tv to myself :D
Its pretty old news that its a timed exclusive. I know there has been no official announcement but...come on people. *rolls eyes*. Anyways, the game (based on the demo) just seems average to me. Kind of like comparing a dry pancake to a delicious eggs benedict brunch. Its just not there.
dont care if this game goes multi. i wasnt expecting it to move systems.
I still think it's a PS3 exclusive. The Playstation Official Magazine even put a little message box in the preview that talked about the debate of it being multi-platform or not. It says something like this: "While there has been debate on whether or not Haze is a timed-exclusive we can say taht we have confirmation from Free-radical and Ubisoft that it is, indeed, a PS3 exclusive. That's right, It's all ours." Something to that effect and that was in the may issue.
Who cares....I will play it on my ps3...as long as they took there time on the ps3 version is all i care about and with all the delays they did now do the 360 version
Who else because i need you psn ID
Look me up Bub, I'll be getting it. maybe not day 1 but before the week is out. I'd like to check out the co-op PSN - racingx
add me psn: zeekamay29
I'm going to buy it PSN: f4t41_ph4nt0m
I'll prob be getting it...PaperTiger201.
psn yanikins111 In au though, so if anyone else in my neck of the woods gets Haze, add me.
I will buy it. Enjoyed demo pretty much, so I dont care if graphics are aged or whatever else people say.
Downloading the demo now to see for myself. If I like it I will buy it. Don't care if it goes multiplatform or not.
Xtards would love to have it, even though your local dipsh1t a.k.a. pp wont admit it.
I LOVED IT. The ones who say its rubbish are mainly xboys 3rd60s and they didnt even play it.
Wrong, I'm a proud Ps3 owner, which doesn't change the fact that the demo I played was complete junk. Honestly I'm surprised the had the gal to release such a horrible demo for it. I felt exactly the same way when I played the Turok demo, and in-fact if you told me they were the same game without prior knowledge then you could have fooled me. Let them have it for all I care. It won't change a single thing.
As a 360 owner, i don't care... i don't think we were ever that hyped for this game. it was only when it went exclusive all of a sudden it became a big thing ( mostly because of the fanboy war ).....ya like its going to be a better shooter then what we already have... i don't think so ! As a PS3 owner, well i thought since it has gone exclusive i am assuming its because they are trying to push it further then they think they could do if it was multi plat, so maybe there will be more to it. the demo has now proved its nothing more then average, solid, but average ! GTA 4 and grid will more then keep me going till MGS4 comes out.
As a PS3 user I don't care either. If they'd want to do it, go ahead, port it. Won't change my PS3 experience in any way.
Honestly who cares??? No doubt the 360 would improve the grapics and have a proper High def resolution but the game would still be crap.
you mean like halo 3?
No games on Xbox 360 do 1080p and thats a fact.
ah 4cough once again u prove your a moron. the RRoD box offers halo 3, PS3- true 1080p GT5 riiiiiiiiight
Hmmm...Virtua Tennis 3 and Blue Dragon do 1080p, just to name a few. I really don't give a damn about resolutions, to me it's more important what the game looks like. 1080p is some crap Sony came up with just to fool fanboys into thinking it makes a huge difference. Graphics of the year 2007 - Call of Duty 4, 640p. Nuff said.
sounds to me like it will be a timed exclusive. but whatever, I lost interest in this game last year. If it had been out in '07 as originally stated, then great, but there are so many more promising shooters coming out shortly.
it's a pretty decent game from i gathered from the demo. free radical would sell more units if this went multi-plat so if they chose to port it then more power to them.
I don't get why people don't like it. It's not like it's conflict denied ops or soldier of fortune level. This game deserves at least an 8/10.
We know this is a demo that was shown a while ago and not near the final version. So that message could be old as well. Or we could be looking too deep into this.
Judging by the demo, I wouldn't really care which console it is released on. I am just too busy playing GTA4, have to finish it before June 12th:P My initial target is June 5th so I can play Ninja Gaiden 2, but I don't think so that would be even possible. :(
Well, unless Sony paid for exclusivity (which they say they don't ever pay for) and the game is release and sell are similar to UT3... I am sure they will bring to the xbox 360... out of people EA... will keep this game exclusive... for what? for the love of Sony? right....
Yikes, is this post in english? I don't understand what you are trying to say.
Blade, what have EA got to do with Haze and what makes you think 3 full stops are the same as a comma?
Ea? Are you oky this is published by Ubisoft genious
I believe he is speaking in what I call Drunkenese...broken and non-sensical....but making perfect sense to the drunk writer.
oops sorry I meant to say ubi... but.. what different does it make... ubi is just like EA... they will try to maximize profits... and unless Sony paid to make this game exclusive it would be a bad idea...
Worth playing . Very interesting concepts. Love the nectar usage. The fact that we have nexgen tech to last us for many years on the PS3 puts me at ease. Who really has the money to dish out after just three years $400 for another system already oh yes M$ alone but not their gamers. What quality FPS does xrrod really have. All third party games for them are on the PS3. So i am sure they are still not talking about falo 3 or GOW. Two games . COD 4 is also on the PS3 and was voted the better version.
look i understand your point but they also have bioshock i wanted that on the ps3.
I remember when PS3 fanboys called the 360 the "FPSbox". You said FPS games belonged on PC etc. Then came Resistance(supposed Halo killer) and you flip-floped as usual. And now you have the guts to say "What quality FPS does xrrod really have". If the FPS games on the PS3 were as good as you fanboys say, they would have sold more copies. When FPS games that actually are good come along, like COD 4, Halo 3, Half Life 2 and Bioshock, they sell accordingly(and usually win awards for being great too).
I won't be disappointed if this goes multi-plat in the end, the game is fun to say the very least.
I'm going to agree, this game is fun but it won't be at-a-loss if it reaches out to the Xbox 360.
Who cares any way, it's not like Haze will be a great game, FR should have made a Time Splitters sequel instead of this.
With you there, pal. I'm fed up of playing wingman to a bunch of homoerotic, high-fiving jocks - bring back the monkeys!
If it in the end runs in low def..im guessing it is and had been planned for release for 360. There's no excuse to why it is in Low -def unless it started out as a 360 lead and such.
To tell you the truth,I know this game isnt really exclusive, every PS3 owner knows true exclusive games have a certain look to them that make the PS3 standout and show what it can do, this game right off the bat i knew it wasnt built for the PS3, the graphics to me seem like turok but a little more polished, the guns arent that great, and I dont know what ubisoft used the SPU's for but it seems they really dont want to put it to good use other then using it for some good smoke and particle effects. Im not spending 60bucks on this game, regardless of its co op mode, to me this is more of a rent and play game, i'll reserve my 60bucks for games like MGS4, Resistance 2, and Killzone 2.
I liked this game. Since I'm a GTA fan and the Grid demo disappointed me I think I'll get this one. It will hold me till MGS4.
Could be several monthes old; although I wasn't very impressed by it at all. I rememeber when I first saw it, it had so much potential. Oh and the cheesy voice work, and some of it was disterbing...like when one of my squad mates starts talking durring battle. "when i'm jerking off tonight, I will be remebering this moment!" Yes, he actually said that
Agreed... My roommate watched me play the Demo and we both had quite a laugh at the terrible voice work... numorous spots were plain awkward... And I don't mean funny.... more just bad.
The game is garbage... release it for 360 for all I care cos im not buying it for any
I played the demo and i enjoyed playing the game in coop mode. That's probably how it was meant to be played in the first place.
This game should have released in fall 2007 - at a time the PS3 NEEDED it the most. Before it was delayed and scheduled for release in fall 2007, it was a better alternate Exclusive for PS3 against Xbox 360's Halo 3...both being First-Person Shooters: single player (solo, 2-4 player co-op) and multiplayer modes. However, with the delay and HAZE hype that seems to have died down, I doubt it’ll sale as much as it would have back in fall 2007. If Free Radical/Ubisoft in the process intended HAZE to be PS3 Exclusive entirely (despite their claim 'timed-exclusive') and sales figures are disappointing, will likely see a 360/PC. Nevertheless, until Free Radical/Ubisoft says otherwise let's treat HAZE as PS3 exclusive.
Sony has Final Fantasies / Gran Turismos /Metal Gear Solids etcetera. People always buy because they love these series. Sony doesnt' really rely on 1 game to push sales. Its a collection of historic titles that people have been playing for decades. Considering the PS3 is on a long life cycle its not shocking that the first year didn't end the world as we know it. Haze is a terrible game. Its unfinished, its FUN. But nothing spectacular. From the development and the terrible graphics, I wouldn't be surprised if there is already a 360 port in the works. No one is going to buy this game on the PS3 after playing the demo. I'm sure a few people will. But there is just too much good exclusive content out there that deserves 60.00. Haze is not one of these titles. Nintendo also has a lineup of historic titles.
@ above Are you kidding? So, PS3 exclusive Haze sucks because you dont believe it is exclusive? Huh? that is some serious mental gymnastics, I'm sure you can find a way to blame Lair sucking on Nintendo.
Agree with the top portion of your post. Sony have alot of top franchises. (trying to add another with KZ2. Heres hoping) On haze though, you have to realise that the demo we have been given is pretty old. Its not the newest version. Given that i thought it was pretty good. The aiming was a tad touchy, but nothing you couldnt get used to. Didnt mind the graphics either. Not mind blowing but not bad either. And for everyone saying its a more polished turok, turok was ar$e. turok is on the same level as... hell i dont know, but its really really low.
