Codemasters have announced today that the ps3 version of Dirt will be delayed. The ps3 version will not be arriving anywhere before October 5. The PC and xbox360 version shall be arriving at retail shelves on June 22.
Atleast they didn't delay the 360 version, YAY!
I dont understand this from a business move at all.
Who would spend 59.99 on DIRT when killzone, GTA, Heavenly Sword are right next to it? Especially when Motorstorm most likely will have dropped in price by then as well..
Not to mention that I would take Motorstorm over DIRT regardless. Motorstorm is a lot of fun, Colin is a seriously annoying simulator.
As a Ps3 user im use to this type of stuff by now. We get shafted because we decided to buy Sony's console instead of Microsoft. I totally understand how thats fair.... lol....
You know im really starting to understand why people steal games and dont seem to care... Devs dont care so why should we.
Just to check it out. If you even want to, you might be too busy playing KZ :)
WTF are you basing this one? Have you actually played a demo or the full game yet? Nope? That's what I thought another ill informed dumb ass post. Making a statement as to why something sucks just to sound smart on the net.
I was going to get this for PS3, figuring they would come out around the same time.
Guess I will pick it up for my 360 after all.
I wonder why?
My money is online. Either they are waiting for something to do with Home, or Sony haven't given enough information to go online and they don't want to relase without it. The lack of online compatibility is gettign ridiculous, Sony need to get it together.
You have some major major releases scheduled for around then including GTAIV. I wanted to get this game but one game a month is pretty much my max. I have a feeling I'll lose enough life to GTAIV.
im sure it will be the same game just.................later !
I Love it... Hey Sony, What would you like on your tombstone?
Pepperoni and extra cheese.
[anyone remember those commercials?]
I know what you want on yours.
Here lies sorry ass M$ Fanboy.
oh I get it vo cal, your avatar is what you look like after you remove your head from bill gates ass. um..........yeah, you got a little there. oh and um.........theres some more sh*t right there.
Dirt got delayed on the PS3. What is Sony going to do now, i bet they are ready to call it quits and planning what to write on their tombstone. I saw the videos, looks boring as hell, and nowhere NEAR the graphics and chaotic environment of MOTORSTORM. That game kicks asss!!!!
Anyone who even thinks that this game comes close to the fun and mayhem of motrostorm is seriously tkaing some major drugs. The videos of this game look absolutley boring. Its funny that all fo teh 360 fans are loving this game, because they havent played motorstorm and dont realise what they are missing. Motorstorm is a blast to play online, crazy crashes, crazy routes, big Semi's and rally cars, mud flying around, dust kicking up.
Dirt was a race on a dirt road, with nothing else, it should be just a 360 exclusive for all I care.
Sim vs Over the top racing... humm Not really something I would compare. And on the visuals you are dead wrong. Dirt looks fantastic. Just because it was delayed for the PS3 does not mean you have to talk it down now. Go play motorstorm till October. My problem now is what racing game do I play all summer, Dirt or Forza 2... hummmm
So it's not gonna be a 360 port
looks like 2 different games, never intrested me and its now just fallen off my games radar.
One lost sale.
I knew the fanboys would say that, if this was ther other way round for the Xbox 360 then you fanboys would be mocking and taking the piss out of the 360 for being so crap. Sigh, oh well i can't wait to get this game and Forza Motorsports 2 for my Xbox 360 they are gonna be great.
This game is going to be the sh1t! Can't wait.
Anyhow pretty dumb being as absolutly no one will buy this come October. There will be real games to buy not half azzed ports.
Id say dont even bother. The game doesnt look better than Motorstorm and the fact thats is a simulator doesnt help much either.
Add me to the list that will get it on PC just for kicks and giggles.
Codemasters designed the Neon engine in collaboration with Sony to make good use of the Ps3's power, and now the game built on it is delayed for the Ps3. Laughable, really. The developers say it's sooo powerful and not at all difficult to develop for. I beg to differ...
This game engine was jointly developed with Sony and now it's coming out on PS3 last, many interviews have already stated that and PS3 was the lead platform, this meens one thing Microsoft has payed for a timed exclusive, fair play to them good move they need a game like that PS3 owners have Motorstorm. Going to make a few phonecalls to see what's going on exactly with this because i'm not a happy bunny at the moment...
You can twist it like that if it makes you feel better. I don't think Microsoft had anything to do with this. Timed exclusive my @$$...
You seem like a good guy, I've always sided well with your comments, if your on PSN add me mate : Smeg0rz
I am also going to make a phone call... to my local Gamestop and pre order the 360 version, since it will be out soon.
How do you know that M$ paid anything. *Your crazy! We have been telling you this for months. I hope you are not surprised.
Seem to share the same brain.
First this game would be a great adition to go along side MotorStrm said PS3 fans just the other day now it sucks and its just a port that doesn't compare to MotorStorm.
You guys were saying well Dirt's a Sim! defending MotorStorm as if its sub genre had something to do with MotorStorm not messuring up to dirt when both Dev teams were trying to acheive a Photo-realalistic and the most real Physics in a game ever. LOL
* O N E... D I R T... D E V S...
* T W O... M O T O R S T O R M... D E V S...
Were trying(claiming) to revolutionize Physics based OffRoad action with Photo Realism. It doesn't matter if the drivers in Dirt were able to get out of the cars and fight or if there were derby like mini games in dirt both! Dev teams claim to sport unmatched physics with state of the art visuals.
Do you Understand?. Stay off my nuts.
Quote: Oh snap, wait. You DO know Halo isn't real" right?"
stick to the anti Microsft gameplan you're not funny you're almost child-like.
Dude, seriously. MS devs tried to implement real physics? You're on drugs, my friend. Have you even played it? Didn't think so. I love MS specifically because it is NOT realistic. It's a damn arcade style game, not a sim. Jesus, when will you get that through your thick skull? How many times have you been told?
Oh snap, wait. You DO know Halo isn't real, right?
Every single game has some form of physics built in.
Tell me this, if the MS devs were trying to emulate REALISTIC physics, why do you think they enable you to fly hundreds of feet through the air and land with with the grace of a gymnast? Can you do that in real life?
Now, as far as the effects of mud/terrain, the background visuals etc, they might have tried to be more realistic. Now Dirt on the other hand is trying to be as close to real life as possible, just like GT and Forza do. You will NOT see hundred foot jumps in Dirt, Forza or GT because that doesn't happen in real life.
it should be a 360 exclusive(right now).
why hurt the sales of Motorstorm(199k in march)
and i`m not trying to spin this.
it`s strictly business.
why hurt the sales of a 1st party dev.
From the looks of the latest videos the gameplay needs a bit more work.
Go make some calls i'll even ship some quarters to you!. LOL MS paid CodeMasters to push back the PS3 version(nonsense) i had no idea this was such sensitive matter never knew Dirt gave PS3 owners confidence in the PS3 on such a level. You guys are still getting it Sheesh!!!!...
I agree with you. If you really like the game and have both consoles, get it on the 360 and play it early. If you like the game and have a PS3 get it when it comes out. Likewise for the 360.
It's a game, and if it's a good one, be happy we're both getting it.
...is the likely reason for the delay, as with every other multiplatform title that's been delayed for PS3 thus far. Yep, that Sony online is free....and COMPLETELY WORTHLESS.
"I saw the videos, looks boring as hell, and nowhere NEAR the graphics and chaotic environment of MOTORSTORM. That game kicks asss!!!!"
Yes it was delayed, Whoopti FN doo. now you bash the game because it is delayed on your precious and only console brand ever of choice. You give fair weather fans a bad name ya know.
Funny how fake gamers boycott getting a game for the Xbox360, while they play it on a dumbed down PC, just for sh!ts and giggles at sticking it to MS. Now that right their gamers, Extreme Hypocrisy..I wonder if they would ever play online VS Xbox360 Players?
It's not like I play that much Car games, plus I'm gonna give Forza 2 a try, so I might not purchase this game. I guess there is a tiny bit of timed exclusive on the xbox360's part..lol
Now PS3 fans bash Dirt because its a sim. Last time when reviewers didn't like F1, PS3 fans called foul because reviewers didn't understand that it was meant to be realistic.
And the Neon engine was developed with the help of Sony. So I guess Sony sucks?
Btw, I own both 360 and PS3 (only RFOM and MS so far).
1) PS3 Installbase too low and they will not have a ROI.
2) PS3 games take longer to develop. * Fanboys shouldn't complain about letting developers work on the PS3... if they don't you are going to be the quick to point out that "Developers are lazy" when they do the comparizon and the 360 version is better. LOL
there shouldn't be much complaints, if only a few months delay. Now if we are talking a year and some change then go out and get it for the PC, since you wouldn't dare touch an Xbox I assume.
Quite the whining, Delays can only be a good thing, if you view it, as so. Unlike others bashing the game, Sony,PS3 and developers. Post a comment similar to (thatWhore#20) and move about, I suppose. We Xbox360 fans feel your pain, with all this waiting.
Actually we are talking about the US. so installbase is like 800K... and we are talking about a car game... not Metal Gear... Also, for some strange reason PS3 owners don't like buying games... the attach rate is low.
what the hell? Well now I know what version to buy, buy delaying it by what 4 months? That's ridiculous
They first decided to make the game on the 360 because as we all know 360 is easier to develop(according to some lazy ass developers)and then they would just port the game to the PS3, but to find out that its not looking to good. This is proof why developers should make the game first on the ps3 and port it to 360 and pc because that way it is easier on all of us.
The Neon engine for Dirt was developed with the help of Sony. So its not a port. Amazing what PS3 fans come up with. I really like the M$ paid CS to delay the PS3 version.
All you PS3 owners pretending this is a crap game now should pull your heads in. From my understanding Codemasters have never released a bad racing game, and I dont think they ever will. I know the Xboys are on your cases about everything all the time and this is just another excuse for them to say "Haha" but when you act like this you make them seem justified in doing so. Dont give them that power by making a big deal out of it.
CM is a great series and still will be. Yeah the delay is disappointing for PS3, but. oh well. You'll just have to wait a little longer. I'm still waiting to get GOW2 for Christsakes. CM is not a game I need to get day one. If I buy em it will usually be a bit later when I see it cheap. Or if I cant wait, I'll just get it on X360. One of the benifits of not being a fanboy, you can buy games on any console you like.
Personally I DO think Motorstorm is way more fun, but I'm not about to knock a good series because I'm bitter about waiting. Waiting is what real gamers have to do all the time.
yup.. no need to act like crybabies or defend whatever sh!t the xbox fanboys bring out! those who love the series will buy it no matter what! those who want more carnage can buy motorstorm.
seeing all the PS3 fanboys playing down DIRT.
Have you seen the latest damage trailer? Amazing!
Just one problem with the 360, too much choice, Forza and Dirt within a month, lovely!
Well this in a way is a bad thing. Delays aren't good...and a part of the intensity of the bad feeling is jealousy of those that own the other platform.
But in another way it is a good thing. Haven't we all been sick of the doom words of "bad port" and "lazy devs"?
It's clear they are struggling with the architecture of the ps3...split memory and split cores that need to be homed in on is not easy to do, but at least they are delaying so they can get it just right.
For me. It's not too bad. Motorstorm can tie me over, and I think Burnout will be my favorite next gen racer.
If a ps3 owner was really waiting for this, then that's a shame, but at least it will be spectacular when it does come. 4 months though? Slightly excessive?
I doubt they're "struggling with the hardware" since Sony helped build the engine with Codemasters. Also, I think Bladestar forgets that high and low attach rates can mean anything. For instance, high attach rates can imply that not enough people are buying consoles, and low attach rates can imply that there's a steady stream of new customers buying the console. The PS2 is consistently outselling the Xbox 360 week after week, but has a relatively low attach rate due to high sales. Attach rates are an average of all owners. I don't blame him though; he simply copied the 'attach-rate' claim from TopGamer.
Is the PS3 fans always compares the 360 sales with the PS2 even though the 360 is outselling the PS3 (NA). But when it is mentioned that the Wii is killing the PS3 in all regions, that's shot down because Wii is not considered next-gen and not competing with same target audience.
Also, no matter how you spin it, 360 software sells really well.
awe.. testerg35... he was talking more about the attach rate than the "PS2 selling more than 360". atleast look smart before pointing the fingers... but do you or do you NOT agree about the attach rate???
Yes that is a great point, attatch rates for the PS2 will be smaller because of the sheer volume of PS2 owners (or should I say units sold since theres no accurate way to tell how many have been brought by previous owners -don't take that comment as bashing but its true for any good product that's been out for awhile 7,8 yrs), but as far as the attatch rates go its a simple fix....just look at total sales for any particular game.....360 games sell amazingly well compared to ANY console. 360 owners do talk alot but testerg35 is correct 360 software sells really well. -BTW if you are going to say 360 has a higher attatch rate ratio than the PS2 because there are less 360 owners, then you have to at least wonder why the PS3 by the same logic doesn't have a higher attatch rate ratio than the 360?...uhm well the answer is obvious, 360 has a better selection at the moment, so I guess we have to give PS3 more time, we know their heavy hitters haven't released yet, but then again neither has 360's. -Wow its going to be a interesting "war"...of games.
Dirt looks like a good game, better than Motorstorm I don't know, but either way just because its delayed isn't a good reason to bash the game, although I do think the time frame seems a little long, still the dev's are trying to ensure its done right and they did work on the engine with Sony, right?....so just give 'em a break.
My point is why compare to the PS2? Why not compare against the PS3's attachrate?
Dirt is better on the 360 than the PS3 codemaster know their game better than anybody else so every time they decide to show it off to the public in the form of a demo they show the 360 version and I said this the other day about the rockstar giving a demonstration of GTA of the 360 version to game informer which also mean's that in it's current form the 360 version is better than the PS3.
Stupid move codemaster STUPID move...
NPD numbers didn't look that great for Motorstorm, so maybe they are waiting till install base is something like 6 million.
You are not the majority, u are a tiny little minority. Given the popularity of the old colin mc rae games on the sony consoles. I will pretend your comment never existed.
of course the 180 is selling more than the ps3 its been out 18 months plus and the ps3 is outselling the 180 at this time last year by alot at a larger cost that is sad and the 180 launched all alone the wii is selling alot because its cheap really cheap the price of a handheld console but doesnt have any good games but zelda and that was also on gamecube trust the games that are on the ps3 and the ones that are commning the 180 will not be able to keep up with there are heavy hitters that you dont even know about there are over 80 exclusives that are in developement for the ps3 right now they will be release in 2007 or early 2008 ps3 despite the late release and higher price point will overcome all in all categories youll see ps3 is in it for the long haul the 180 is in it for 3 years
but can you learn to use periods or something. It's really hard to read you comments.
where u refferring to the ps2.5 ?? idiot
