Sixthaxis Exclusive: PS3 To Pick Up 360 Title

Nofi of TheSixthAxis: "Whilst we can't reveal any specifics right now, we can now reveal that the PlayStation 3 will play host to a popular 360 favourite. The title, which has to remain under wraps with us for the time being, will be released towards the end of the year. We've been promised more information in roughly a month's time, at which point we'll be able to share the specifics, first.

Our contact has also let us know that the studio will have other exciting news to share soon enough. Note that we can not talk about this further at this stage.

Have a good weekend." (Culture, PS3, Xbox 360)

Christopher  +   2403d ago
Yeah, I'm thinking (praying) it's Mass Effect as well. With BioWare making Dragon Age and all future console releases on the PS3 and 360, getting Mass Effect 1 and 2 on the PS3 seems like a no brainer. I own it on the 360 but would definitely pick it up on the PS3, my console of choice.

Mass Effect probably. I hope they fix all the issues first.

I was just thinking that after watching the new trailer from last nights G4tv episode. That would be great for everyone, maybe get existing ps3 owners access to awesome games. The ps3 needs this. This alone would give Dragon Age Origins some cred.

It's Mass Effect. The signs are all to obvious.
Hopefully they shortened the elevator rides and got rid of the frame rate issues.

Microsoft isn't publishing Splintercell, so it could be that.
Or Mass Effect (with a different name, since Microsoft published the X360 version).
Can't be Left 4 Dead 2 either coz Microsoft, again (I heard) is publishing the X360 version. Guys correct me if I'm wrong.

Why does everyone think it will be a huge retail game? Im not saying its not but i mean common havent you people figured it out lately "BIG" popular stuff includes PSN and XBLA. I wouldnt be surprised if that Shadow game Cliffy boy is working on is going to PSN too. But also think what game is being released this year that we know of had rumors of PS3? ME 2 is next year, so ill give you ME1 if at all ME news. And those saying Splinter cell they have already stated it wont reach other plateforms even at E3 i think they said this. Anyways hope for the best and watch ill probably be eating my words here soon so dont worry PS3 boys :)

Its not mass effect 2 cause it says taht it will be released sometime this year
ME 2 is next year. It may be mass effect 1, but we would probably hear about that by now. I have a feeling its something lame.
Beast_Master  +   2403d ago
If it is Splinter Cell, I will be licking the tears of all the 360 fanboys! lol jk. I hope it is L4D, Splinter Cell or ME. Although it is probably Dead Rising 2 which I thought was confirmed for PS3 but if it isn't confirmed, it is the worst kept secret in gaming.

or other underwhelming annoucements include:

Castle Crashers
Ninja Blade
Shadow Complex

@ above. I think some are speculating Mass Effect 1 will be released in the fall, then that would mean a Port of ME 2 would be almost certain, probably holiday 2010. Seeing as how there has been a bunch of news coming from Bio-Ware about "EA owns Mass Effect" and "We like developing for PS3".

We know that they want it to be the "Definitive Racing Sim this Generation!" and what better way than to port it to PS3 to compete Directly with GT5. With it being a Multiplatform game it can get twice as many sells as GT5 just due to the fact that many people would get it just to be able to compare the two games on the same system/setup. It's a can't lose situation for everyone. ;P

While I think there is a very good chance that Mass Effect will come to the PS3, I don't think that is what this is. It will be interesting to find out.
N4Flamers  +   2403d ago
my guess...
Mass Effect. The reason I say this is because they stated that ME2 will have a different experience based on what you did in the first game, so since there is no first game on ps3, why not put one out.
Megatron08  +   2403d ago
Unnamed sources told me that 5 of the ps3 biggest exclusives will be coming to the 360. While I cant reveal any details or who these sources are.

See how easy that works. its a shame all the slow witted fanboys click on these sites that make up rumors like crazy and even buy into them. Till they show some proof they are just another site making up rumors HHG style cause they cant get the scoop on any real gaming news.

Well you guys know
that i am a die hard PS3 fan but to be honest i want ME franchise to stay on the x360. I want Bioware to do the best they possibly can with ME with the x360 without thinking about the PS3.

I have always maintain my stance on console exclusives. We really really need more of them.

In any case. PS3 fans can still play it on the PC like i will even if it comes on the PS3.

Its as they say, "The fish dies by the mouth" and many if not all of you are already getting Reeled in!
pain777pas  +   2403d ago
Mass Effect 1 I know it. PS3 will not get 2 until like 6-12 months after the 360 release. But I have a good feeling its ME1 for sure.
JL  +   2403d ago
I always love when people do stuff like what LONEWOLF just did there: taking what others have said in the past and applying to everybody only to later throw that back in their face and make them "eat those words" when it wasn't even the people that said it in the first place, just he lumps anybody who likes PS3 into a collective, that shows fanboyism doesn't it.

In other words, I'll sit here and say that I'd like to see ME1 or Conviction be announced as the "stolen game". I've said nothing but good things about those games (especially Conviction), even going so far as to say I'd love to see those come over to PS3 so I can play them. In all actuality, ME1 does seem the more likely scenario. Though if that happens, it's practically guaranteed that ME2 is coming to PS3 at some point too.

Just because MS is publishing a game for their console, doesn't mean they own the rights to that game or anything, so it's not impossible for another company to publish the PS3 version. Just like the Ghostbusters ordeal recently, and I know I just read about another game just the other day where there was speculation on a PS3 version coming, but they finally found a publisher for it (forget which game it was).

Like others, have mentioned though, wouldn't surprise me if this turned out to be something like Braid (not that that's bad, just not as big as say Conviction or ME). I hope it's not Geometry Wars though like others mentioned, as we already have Super Stardust.

@ ChozenWoan

It's not going to be a Forza game. As much as I'd like to see a great franchise like that accessable to more people, it's not going to happen.

Forza games are made by Turn10.

From Wikipedia: Turn 10 Studios is a Redmond, Washington-based video game developer created internally by Microsoft Game Studios. The company develops racing games for Microsoft gaming consoles.


I wouldn't be surprised if it's a new installment of the PGR racing game series however. That would certainly go down as an Xbox favourite, with the original being the second biggest selling game on the original Xbox behind Halo: Combat Evolved.

OgTheClever  +   2403d ago
If I had to take a guess on what this game could be then I would say that Mass Effect seems the most likely at the moment.
TheHater  +   2403d ago
same here. Knowing EA, I bet Mass Effect will make its way to the PS3 and Nintendo Wii. Hell they already have Mass Effect on the Cell Phone.
DevastationEve  +   2403d ago
If it's talking about this year, then it's not ME 2. It could be the original ME though, which actually would be nice. PS3 fans should be warned though: MGS4 will suddenly seem so archaic after you've played ME.
Traveler  +   2403d ago
How would Mass Effect make MGS4 feel archaic? I own both games and they are both super amazing games, but I think MGS4 is the better game overall.

How can you really compare them directly though? One is an RPG and one is a stealth action game. The stories told in each game were both fantastic in their own ways.

From a technical perspective MGS4 was much more polished than Mass Effect. The later game was plagued with screen tearing, texture pop-in and slow down. MGS4, on the other hand, had no screen tearing or pop-in and only minimal slow down (mostly during big battles).

So, I still don't see how Mass Effect would make MGS4 feel archaic.
DevastationEve  +   2403d ago
I've always considered Metal Gear Solid an rpg as well, even though it's Mass Effect that's listed under that genre. In truth, they're BOTH third person shooters with an excellent story. But Mass Effect is more involving. Sure, that could possibly be because it's an rpg. But aren't you "playing" the "role" of Solid Snake in MGS as well?

What defines "rpg"? Is it leveling up and experience? In MGS Snake's life gauge would extend after each successful boss battle. Mass Effect and Metal Gear Solid are both "shooter-centric rpgs", the exception being that MGS has always been defined as a stealth action game. There's a sniper riffle in Mass "stealth" isn't a genre, it's a play-mechanic.

There's a party of characters in Mass Effect, again does THAT make it more rpg than MGS? In MGS there are various NPC characters that you contact and communicate with. How about Parasite Eve, there were no other party members than Aya, so...? If you want to say that MGS4 and Mass Effect are incompatible that's fine with me. But if you see it the right way, they are VERY compatible. And that's why I compare the two.

The formula is "involvement". And if Mass Effect keeps the player more "involved" than in MGS4, then it's a better game in my opinion.

That's what I thought too. Though after mulling it over all day, I'm starting to think Dead Rising.
Greysturm  +   2403d ago
Not to be a party pooper but...
Your definition of rpgs is quite nonsensical cause the things that you say define rpgs are applied across all games and all games are not rpg.Helalth bars are pretty much a standard in the industry by your definition all shooters are rpgs since they all have a health bar, and most platformers by that matter as well.

Games are defined by their playing mechanic, platformers for jumping on platforms, survival horror for limited ammo, "creepy" games, shooters for well games who only involved shooting and in all of them you play a role, you play as mario in mario bros, you play as master chief in halo etc. The thing that defines an rpg is a numerical based level up system.

Ps. Mass effect only had one thing from preventing it from being archaic and it was its Action/rpg balance everything else bioware have done to death. While Mgs rebalanced and reinvented the gameplay formula albeit not the convoluted storyline. So in general one would feel the other way around after playing mgs4 mass effect might seem archaic.

Defectiv3_Detectiv3  +   2402d ago
The reason I'm leaning towards Gears...
They haven't officially anounced a sequel yet! Kinda weird, they've been talking about it lately, about how its going to RPG elements and all, but as of right now, MS's big fall release is Halo Reach. Are they really going to wait 3 yrs to release Gears 3????

Geo Wars is still an XBLA exclusive title... But i remember reading a rumor long ago that it would be heading to PSN, but that was coupled with a TGS 2008 announcement of KH 3 (which we all know didnt happen)...
So im going with, as you said, ME 1 this year with all DLC and the usual treats, and a fully multiplatform simultaneous release of ME 2 next year, same as with Bioshock...

I wouldn't say Geometry Wars. Or I guess I'd rather hope not. We already have Super Stardust, we don't need Geometry Wars. Braid seems like a logical choice though.

The only popular games with any kind of chance I can think of are Mass Effect and Left 4 Dead.

It'll probably be Star Ocean 4 or UNO or something ridiculous.
Roper316  +   2403d ago
I did notice on my SO4 package it doesn't have the " only on Xbox " tag which would indicate that it's not really exclusive to the 360, but it is a SE game they have done nothing but take a dump on the PS3 gamer.

I would expect like others have said it will be ME and then we will also get ME2 on the PS3. I already have ME on my 360 but would pick up the PS3 version so I could play ME2 on my PS3 instead of my 360.

mastiffchild  +   2403d ago
I can' it baing SO4. If it had better reviews then maybe but as it stands ir'd be a big risk to expensivelt port it over and if they did the chances of it then coming west would be slim to none-no matter how much the series PS heritage indicates otherwise.

Money wise it would make most sense for a ME1 port, imo, as if they aren't doing it soon EA will miss their chance. How many PS3 gamers would want ME1 AFTER everyone else had played number two and were already waiting for 3? History would suggest pretty few-even Bioshock, a true FPS FFS didn't tear up sales on PS3 with a lesser delay. So IF it's to be ME it would make sense to do it ASAP wouldn't it?

Hope it isn't Braid though-game gives me the creeps in the same way the Childcatcher off Chitty chitty does! The less I have to deal with that nasty effort the better and the fewer [people bringing it up the better too!

Gears 1 and 2 packaged together would be a VAST money spinner for Epic though, and the BIGGEST shgock in an age but will it happen? Not before the meteor hits it won't!

Omega4  +   2403d ago
Another rumour from some no name blog site, on the plus side at least it isnt twitter.

The fact that there's a month to wait seems very dodgy since everyone would of forgotten by then. And what ever happened to the rumor about Sony buying an RPG studio which would cause them to win the console gen.

But if it is true is will likely be some XBLA game or Dead Rising, cause when has Bioware/EA ever leaked info. Plus they say it like its an exclusive yet ME is on the PC as well.

When it comes to stealing exclusives, games on the 360 and PC counts as not being exclusive but if this were some other article games like Mass Effect and Left4dead would still be considered 360 exclusive. Nice hypocrisy.

mass effect 2 isn't releasing this year.
Left 4 dead has been rather explicity stated as an exclusive and the original mass effect has publishing rights by MS.

So my guess is S04 or some other JRPG or a game we already figured was coming to the ps3 but has now been confirmed like lost planet 2.

But I don't think they own the publishing rights that bioware had developed with MS on the original before the aquisition to EA.

EA can publish ME for the PS3, just like they did for the PC. MS published for the 360, but EA published for the PC. ME1 makes the most sense because if it comes this year, it gives people a chance to play it before the sequel comes out next year.

ME can come to the PS3 Legally, just change the name.
Tecmo done this pretty much already with NG.

Dead Rising
Pretty clear.
DeforMAKulizer  +   2403d ago
I think it is already established that Dead Rising is now a multiplatform game...
BYE  +   2403d ago
Maybe Dead Rising.

Mass Effect was denied multiple times before so I don't believe it will come to PS3 anytime soon.
Monk3y  +   2403d ago
Dead Rising 2
has been multiplat for a long time dudes, its clearly some shiity jrpg or l4d (2) or ME (2)
Kushan  +   2403d ago
Wow, this couldn't be any more vague if it tried.
In other news: Some title will be coming to some platform that it wasn't on before. Fanboys rejoice.

Finally!!! it time!!! PS3 steal game from $.
TheDuke77  +   2403d ago
I Hope they announce it soon, I was going to pick up a 360 after summer, just so I can play Mass Effect 1 & 2 as well as Fable 2. But if Mass Effect is coming to PS3, I might have to rethink it.
MK24ever  +   2403d ago
I hope it is...
Dead or Alive!!
Xi  +   2403d ago
that makes sense.
It might be DOA.
Tomonobu Itagaki  +   2403d ago
Strictly impossible. Seriously.
jack_burt0n  +   2403d ago
dead or alive hardcore would be cool.
BYE  +   2402d ago
Wow, I didn't think about DOA. That actually would kick serious butt.
Foxgod  +   2403d ago

Mistwalker studio's is funded by MS, without MS mistwalker cannot make any games, so i doubt they would let LO go.
IronFistChinMi  +   2403d ago
Lost Odyssey's a MS game through & through. My guesses would be Dead or Alive, Braid, L4D or Mass Effect 2.
chisox100  +   2403d ago
Most Likely:
Mass Effect

Dead Rising

Slight Chance:
Left 4 Dead 2

Almost No Chance but still possible:
Gears of War
Foxgod  +   2403d ago
That you guys really want mass effect, doesnt make it likely.
I wouldnt confuse desire with likelihood.
Its probably going to be Dead rising.
cereal_killa  +   2403d ago
Dead Rising is already confirmed to be a multi plat
waltercross  +   2403d ago
I Think It'll be M.E 1 with an anouncement for
M.E 2.
Qui-Gon Jim  +   2403d ago
Whatever it is...
...Let's make sure we grossly overstate the importance of it like was done with MGS:Rising (e.g. "360 is dead, it has NO exclusives anymore").
