The latest Official Xbox Mag has a preview of Ace Combat 6 for the 360, and also the not-very-unexpected-at-all-really news that it's exclusive for the 360, but only for a limited time.
Thanks that would be appreciated.
It was first announced as coming to both platforms then announced as a 360 exclusive. Now we know it's only timed exclusive.
Nope...maddens thought he'd never be able to play it lol. And I told him he would. :)
Cool. should be quite fun on sixaxis.
meh, i think ill pass warhawk looks better.
Not unexpected, but a relief non the less. I always loved this series, I'm looking forward to what they can offer for the next-gen systems.
yeah, this game is going to be alot of fun....I'm just grateful these guys decided to give 360 a shot at this series, and I'm glad Maddens will get to play it too....jeez, talk about obsessed, huh deepbrown, I thought he might lose it. -lol, nah but seriously this is the type of game that should be great on both consoles, I don't think the gameplay/style of this game can be called 360 or PS3 type gameplay(OMG its a shooter)....if there is such a thing. Great news even though most assumed it was going to be multiplatform, and hopefully for PS3 fans it won't take long before its released on PS3.
now we all get to enjoy it =)
I played the latest Ace Combat on the PSP which was pretty good... so I'm not really that excited about this game....
Let's start a petition! ;)
i would like to play a demo of it... if there is going to be one, also maybe an online demo like GRAW 2 :D
As for buying it... depends on how i find the demo (if one is released)
More games will follow.
Namco & Sony have a joint venture on going which will make games for 'Cell'. Along with deals for 'PS3 arcades'. Namco would never drop Sony for Microsoft.
Officials from Japanese publisher and arcade manufacturer Namco Bandai have announced that the company is developing a series of new arcade games which will use the Cell microprocessor, according to a new Reuters report.
The new arcade hardware will also use the same Nvidia designed RSX graphics chip as the PlayStation 3, which will make conversions between future arcade titles and the PlayStation 3 relatively easy.
They really wouldn`t wanna miss out the sixaxis controller
and its all exclusive babe ;)
And Warhawk is all sh!t baby....
Ace Combat 6 looks much, much better. Bet Warhawk is the same story as Genji 2. Genji 2 would be a very great game when showed with the giant crab... It turned out to be a very sad and bad game.
I don't expect Warhawk to do better. But Ace Combat 6 will, the screenshots look great
You may keep Warhawk, we got Bioshock, C&C3 and more exclusive and GTA4 , Assassins Creed, Virtua Fighter 5, DMC4 and more that'll have a lot more impact then Warhawk
Warhawk has been praised as amazingly good fun by 1up...and that's all that matters for a multiplayer experience...Ace Combat...what is it? A flying sim?
this time i have to agree with themart, ace combat it's great, it's the metal gear of the air, try ace combat 5 or zero, it's not just fun, you can feel emotion like you really are in that cokpit. I'm not saying that Warhawk is crappy, it can be good too but it's just multiplayer so it has no story
ye but marty boy, ill have both ace combat plus warhawk you wont :)
ye we will get bioshock as well :) also MGS 4, Assassins Creed, Virtua Fighter 5, DMC4, Killzone 2, Heavenly Sword, Lair, FF 13, GT 5, Little Big Planet i could go on and on n00b.
A flying """sim"&qu ot;" yeah.
More arcadey than anything
So now you'll get a poor port huh!?
Edit: off topic, i just saw their beloved HS screens. Man we had same kinda game eons ago, called 99 nights. BTW what happend to her CGI quality hair? looks like red ribbons tyed to her head.
And you're getting games that we've been playing for aeons.
Grand Theft Auto FOUR
Devil May Cry FOUR
Ace Combat SIX
We had all the time to enjoy those games, so now, we're generous and allow you to enjoy them too. Isn't that nice ?
This will be the 'theme' of this generation regarding third-party gaming.
Meaning until they finish the PS version, Maddens should be happy about this one.
good news :)
namco + sony = friendship. :)
motion controller + Ace combat = a lot of fan! =)
And whats that got to do with this any way? Warhawk and Ace Combat are two completely different games. I think Warhawk has got more in common with Battlefield more than any other game if you really have to make a pointless comparison.
Anyway, with that behind us, I wonder why AC is even a timed exclusive. You'd think Namco would just go multiplatform straight up with it. M$ must have paid for a brief exclusive window, (not that I'm saying there's anything wrong with that). Otherwise you'd think they would show more love to the system it was born on.
To me, at least in my mind certain games belong on certain systems and even if they end up going everywhere I still see them as such.
For Example, to me, Splinter Cell will always be an Xbox game, GTA will always be a PS game and Halflife will always be a PC game, even though all of those games ended up on all of the platforms. I generally prefer them on the machine they made their bones on. Call me old fashioned. I dont care if X360 gets AC6 first, since I could get either version, as long as it comes home to PS3 as well. Plus lets not forget the 6ax. That will be awesome. The more I play Flow and that Duck game the more I'm impressed with the responsiveness of the controller and cant wait til its really used properly. Even in resistance where its only used a little, when one of those freaks grabs you and you need to shake him off, its brown trousers time, and it really sucks you into the game. A flight Sim (abeit, an arcadey flight sim) will be 10 times more immersive with the 6ax. Looks good.
And theres 2 "o"'s in Goose boys. ;)
teh 360 lost an exclusive to teh PS3, oh no's whats teh world coming to
anyways ill be downloading the demo off live, and buy the game on the PS3 since its where ive been playing the ACE COMBAT series, on the playstation brand.
damn the mart dont get your panties in a twist. i knew it wasnt a true exclusive you F**KING IDIOT, just like the mart to get a hard on for anything relatively anti 360 and begin attacking, so ill download the demo on live and buy it for the PS3, how am i a sony fanboy when i have all 3 systems? i can care less what each console comapany does, i have all 3 no worries here you dumn F*CK. get your head out of your @ss the retard, go find a girlfriend because im pretty sure your 360 cant stand the constant love making you do to it when you remove the HDD, your obsession with the PS3 has all the makings of a damn PSYCHO. you know you will buy the PS3, who are you kiddin. even if you buy it when the price drops you will go out and buy it, youre a dumb kid who cant afford a PS3 right now so all you can do is attack it. sad buddy truely sad. now to get on GEARS and play some ANNEX. thats right the retard again i have a 360.....but but im im a sony fanboy oh no's im playing teh 360. go to hell mart. youre the true definition of a complete moron. attacking a fellow 360 owner.
hahaha you Sony fanboys are funny!
Ace Combat was a PS game before. It became a time exclusive but that fact wasn't released at the same time but everybody already said so. And now its announced to be timed exclusive you say the 360 looses an exclusive?
Right. The only console really loosing real exclusives is the PS
Said it before, say it again. XBOX never lost a real exclusive
Oblivion, Saints Row, GRAW 1. Timed exclusive because @ release there were no other next gen consoles.
They were never in a former part exclusive on XBOX 1.
Virtua Fighter had 4 parts on PS
GTA had 3 parts from day one on PS and not on XBOX
Devil May Cry 4 had 3 parts on PS not on XBOX
And the only former XBOX thing PS fans get is a remake of Ninja Gaiden one. I've played that for years already.
ANd that's the way it goes.
lol mart you so have that saved in a document...copy and paste. haha now that's marketting for you.
That was soooo last gen. This is next gen buddy, wake up. Its not going to work the same this time around buddy. Lucky for you (you Xbox hugger), the 360 will do quite well. Not so lucky for fans of third party exclusives because there will hardly be any this generation. Why, combination of the 360 success and 'potential success' of PS3 (and not just on brand-name but long term growth).
Are you ok man, I think you need a break or some help! sheesh!.
man I'm just waiting to see Maddens reaction, its gonna be priceless
I was thinking the same thing.
i hope they come with a demo so i can try it out on either system
Hell I wish someone could take a pic of his face when he see's the news -LMFAO, priceless....I don't understand why he assumed it wouldn't be on the PS3, most websites and sensible people said it just hadn't been announced yet (curious why they took their time)...well anyway I won't bash Warhawk, but I will say Ace Combat has always been an outstanding "proven" franchise...hell "flying" games aren't the most appealing genre when it comes to videogames IMO (sorry Maddens, well no I'm not) but Ace Combat on PS2 was at least one of the very best....and this is nex gen, so I'm buying.
All I gotta say is... NOTHING beats top gun for NES.. nothing
This is a stolen exclusive right...........even though i can care less about this game..Matter fact it is a stolen exclusive
So are they making it for the 360 then porting it to the ps3? That seems to be a common trend among 3rd party developers. And in every case the original looks and plays better. Interesting indeed. I remember Microsoft saying over a year ago that, that was their stratedgy in this next generation. Make a system that was easy to developer for that had superior development tools. This way MS and its fans would get all the love from the developers. Seems to be working flawlessly so far. I have purchased every game for both systems and the 360 version consistantly out performs the ps3 version in my opinion. Its safe to say that I don't need to do that anymore. I'm confident that the 360 version will always be superior since its the system developers make the next gen games for. The ports rarely match the original this generation. But, I am looking foward to playing this game on the 360 for sure. WOW.
um.. how do you know it's a "port" ? time exclusive does not necessary mean it's a port.
in my understanding port should means, finished one and then make it on another with many things transfered from 1st make to 2nd make.
now we dont even know how long is the "timed exclusive", how u can be sure it is a port?
i know plp said ps3 hard to develope, so even they start the same time, ps3 could need more time to finish up anyway.
well, ovbiously u already set ur mind to 360.
If true why not anounce both versions at the same time if the PS3 version is going to follow soon after, They might want to wait untill the think they'll get a got return(Bigger Base).
So what do you think of Fight Night 3 or Oblivion on PS3 then ?
And : "I have played every game on both consoles" ? First off, how can you own every game on both consoles and have the appropriate time to compare them enough to say so ?
That said, i do agree with you that the 360 is the best system so far. In the long run, we`ll see.
When was gta 5 ever an ps3 exclusive..?
HAHA! SHAZAM! Another exclusive lost! Take that Sony! Wait a minute...
Its beyond me when people are trying to flame this and say its more than what it is. The PS has lost an Exclusive series thats all that happend. lol For all we know it was just a smarter move to make the 360 version first due to base and needing to make money before the PS3 version.
I'd much rather see a sequel to Crimson Skies, the best flying game ever made IMO.
...at the end of '07 I can guarantee you that the 360 will have more AAA games than the PS3. Why in the hell would you buy a system that, as of yet, doesn't have any big games, when you could buy a system that DOES have a good number of big games!? Buy a 360 this year, buy a PS3 next year, it's as simple as that.
All i hear is Xbox has more games, xbox is cheaper why on earth would you buy a PS3? Here's a good reason because i want to, second i can afford one, i generally preferr playing games on the PS sytem because it feels so much better, mainly due to the Xbox controller sucking big time. Now having said that Xbox 360 may have more games, but most of them are just pure garbage, the only decent games that came out for there console in the first year was Oblivion, GOW, i don't want to be buying a console where 80% of it's games i can find on a PS2; so the way i see it is PS3 is much closer to having more better games than you think; because if Xbox 360 had so many great games out then why does PS3 have the no.1 FPS out right now, the genre they were suppossed to own haha yea you can't answer that one!
Is because it's the only good game it has. (Motorstorm, VF5) Whereas I can buy a 360 and get FEAR, COD2, COD3, PDZ. (All FPS)
"mainly due to the Xbox controller sucking big time."
Must only be you, most of the editors for game sites have said it's great.
"Xbox 360 may have more games, but most of them are just pure garbage, the only decent games that came out for there console in the first year was Oblivion, GOW, i don't want to be buying a console where 80% of it's games i can find on a PS2"
Don't you mean 50%? 'Cause you only listed 2 games, and only one of those in on your beloved PS3. Maybe you don't know how to calculate simple percentages...not sure.
Either way, just to be sure...The PS2 OR the PS3 are getting all of these games then?
Condemned, Uno, WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2007, Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Geometry Wars, King Kong, Top Spin 2, Hitman: Blood Money, The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II, Viva Pinata, Table Tennis, Alien Hominid HD, Kameo, Project Gotham Racing 3, Dead or Alive 4, Guitar Hero II, and Gears of War. So...yeah, tell me exactly why you would want to get a game system that has 80% of the same games? (All of these have received at least an 8.0 or better rating on gamespot, AND they're already released.)
And if Resistance is so good why are you here bashing people who like to play games on the 360? Instead of, you know, actually playing Resistance...?
AS I SAY WHY WOULD I WANT TO BUY A GAMES CONSOLE WHERE HALF THE GAMES I COULD GET ON THE PS2, DYNASTY WARRIORS 5 EMPIRE, KING KONG, TEST DRIVE UNLIMITED, WWE SMACKDOWN VS. RAW 2007, GUITAR HERE 2, HITMAN BLOOD MONEY, GUN, TONY HAWKS 7, I COULD GO ON BUY HEY AS I SAY, GAMES SUCH AS DOA AREN'T MUCH MORE THAN A GRAPHICAL OVERHAUL TRY PLAYING VF 5, NOT MUCH OF AN UPGRADE EITHER BUT THEY PHYSICS ARE BETTER, WHO NEEDS GRAW ONE WHEN YOU CAN HAVE 2, VIVIA PINIATA IS A KIDS GAME GROW UP YOU CAN'T USE THAT GAME TO JUSTIFY THE PURCHASE OF A CONSOLE, THE GAME IS AIMED AT KIDS, THEN AGAIN MANY PEOPLE ON THIS SITE SURE ACT LIKE THEM, SO THEREFORE I'M ASSUMING YOU DON'T PLAY THAT GAME UNLESS YOUR THAT STARVED OF GAMES YOU FEEL THE NEED TO, AS FOR THE GOOD GAMES ON THE 360 THAT ARE EXCLUSIVE AND NOT ON ANY OTHER PLATFORM, GOW, LOST PLANET, GEES, WE HAVE MOTORSTORM AND RESISTANCE, TO ME THAT SAYS THERE EVEN, OM MY YOU JUST GOT POWERED BIG TIME EVOLUTION.
I'm shocked it's even on the 360, it's been PS exclusive for 5 inceptions. I'm glad I'm going to get to play #6 on my 360, it was my favorite game on PS1 (AC2)
You need money when you start building arcade machines that cost 30-45 grand a pop.
If Namco uses the PS3 tech in their cabinets, watch as arcade owners start using the PS3 games in the cabinet instead of the actual crap that Namco sells them. PS2 DDR anyone?? it'll cost ya 50 cents a play at a Time Out!
BTW I use the $ becaues I find it fitting, just like how I use it in M$ and $ony.
I'm glad another console will be getting this great game, maybe they can find a cross console online system so we can find out which system has the best gamers. But I guess I can only dream.
Anyway, here's to sharing another experience with the playstion.
Then simply go play your "GUITAR HERE 2" on your PS2, and leave us civilized people alone. Resistance and Motorstorm is all you have, right?
So I guess you can add another game that looks better on the 360! :)
Kotaku news isn't actually news at all. Can someone post me a link for an official Namco statement ? If not I would not believe this , Kotaku has been like 80% miss 20% hit lately , really bad.
As far as I am concerned the last time I heard any news of Ace Combat 6 it was NAMCO confirming it was an exclusive. Now we have PS3 fanboys screaming from the mountain tops it's a timed exclusive ,off Kotaku and OXM speculation. Well I have EGM and 1up and Gamepro telling 360 fans to expect MGS4 later next year , tell me why they shouldn't believe them. God , I hate gamers.
