Eidos daddy company SCi has thrown in the towel and decided to release its blaster duo Kane & Lynch: Dead Men and Crossfire on PlayStation 3.
There is going to be a string of comments as soon as this goes live!! It looks like the "third party exclusivity" stuff goes both ways, eh??
What now xbots?
on us.playstation.com, but nobody believed me. They had the kane and Lynch game box on display for the ps3 and I asked her if it was a mistake and the employee at Gamestop had it listed as being released on the ps3. I would have reported it here but it would have been a blog or something since I'm not an official reporter or journalist.
More 360 exclusives got multi-ed ! They add up to an already solid lineup. 360 exvlusives like Saint's Row, Oblivion, Two worlds, test drive Unlimited, Ace Combat 6, the franchise Ninja Gaiden etc. are already been multi-ed. Above two are great indeed. I think Trusty Bell and BioShock's announcements are a matter of time !
Especially Trusty Bell(Eternal Sonata) as that is all but confirmed, thanks to the ESRB.
Dude again Was any former part of this game exclusive to the XBOX platform? Ever? No. It's a new IP. It was announced on the 360, and they hold back for the PS3 because they didn't knew if there were enough sales before they want to release the game. Probably they think it will. Same with Oblivion, FNR3 and others. The PS3 wasn't out when the games launched. So it was sort of 'timed' exclusive for the 360. These games would always have been multiplatform. Same story as GRAW 1 was only on 360, GRAW 2 is multiplatform. Besides Ninja Gaiden 1 remake, which other real former parts exclusives can you name that came over to the PS platform? I can name you multiple ones that went from PS (multiple sequels of those games before only on PS) to the XBOX platform DMC4 GTA4 Virtua Fighter 5 Virtua Tennis 3 Should I go on? You Sony fanboys are so eager to twist these 'non exclusive' stories in a tiny bit of positive news for the beloved PS3. I think you'll cry harder when FFXIII and MGS4 come over to the 360. Oh and don't forget God of War 3 And time will tell, as it had before when I heard all Sony fanboys say that DMC4 would never ever be on the 360. I've heard it all before @ Bhai, all games named just prove my point, not yours: "Saint's Row, Oblivion, Two worlds, test drive Unlimited, Ace Combat 6" Saint's Row, Oblivion, TDU were here when the PS3 wasn't even born. Ace Combat has always been PS platform. Now went Multi and the 360 has it timed exclusive. Two Worlds was just about waiting when the PS3 had sold some. Like I said, NG 1 remake. Fine. You get that one, the 360 gets Ninja Gaiden 2 and you will be able to play it 2 or 3 years later. That's fine with me.
The mart i agree with u sorta but God of WAr 3 is made by sony isn't it? kinda like halo 3 for Microsoft except no where close to the fan base.. Thats just what i thought correct me if i;m wrong.
well... i have nothing to say!
my pc begs to disagree
agreed falcontri. Is Gears of War coming to PC? I mean, is it officially confirmed?
I think "BioShock" is the next title to be Multi-Platform.
Bioshock was anounced Exclusive for the 360 at X06 by microsoft and devs, The only way Bioshock will be released on the ps3 is after its been released on pc and the 360 for atleast 6 months to a year as it may be a timed exclusive. so keep wishing as it wont be released the same time as the 360 if at all. and if it does get released later it will be an old game by the time.
I think DMC4, VF5 and UT3 are a bigger loss for sony.
It ain't the case here buddy, because: 1. Sony's platform 'WON' the current-gen, their current-gen console(PS2) is still alive and in excellent health, a Sony exclusive going multi only looks like "its shared" !!! while a MS/360 title going multi lokks like "its lost" because they NEED exclusives for their currnt-gen system died pre-maturely and all their bet in on their new machine. PS3 although quite costy has been really ast selling in comparison to 360 in the same time frame, especially if you consider that 360 didn't have any next-gen competition all along the first year. 2. Microsoft is following Sony's footsteps, they are trying to do with 360 what Sony did with PS1&PS2 i.e., getting more 3rd party exclusives. Sony being the true leader and industry visionary knew that the same old concepts wouldn't bring next-gen at all, so they took the true next-gen way and are coming up with brand new software structures...two of which have already rocked the world at first glance: them being "HOME" and "LITTLE BIG PLANET", something more will certaily be coming up. WHile MS was only busy trying to 'buy' more exclusive HaHaHa !
Sony has A LOT OF exclusives =) and M$ has only FEW. =) So when ps3 lose exlusives, it still has some really good exclusives, which you won`t be able to play anywhere else, and when M$ lose exclusives, it`s going to same way as first xbox, will be Halo3 left, forza2, PGR3/4, some Mistwalker jrpg, but PS3 will have A LOT OF jrpgs, so what left to x360 ? Only multiplatform games, which with time will be worse, then on PS3, because ps3 has more powerful cpu and gpu, x360 have only advantage, that`s easier to develop on it, but soon or later, developers will utilize power of cell, then ps3 will dominate. and yeah, it`s good for M$ gettting GTA4, DMC4, AC6, TB, UT3, VF5 to go multiplatform, atleast xbox360 owners will have some good games. :)
Everyone is write but Yea Ps3 will have alot of JRPGs....lmao thats what they like... Thats like saying 360 will have alot of FPS... The way i see the systems are i little less lob sided than most people. Ps3 yes has a potential better selection of games but its not going to be the same domination they had in the ps2 era, yes there selling Sh!t loads of ps2 it only cost like 110$ dollars i'm about to go buy one in like 2 days it should be expected to be out selling a 400 and 600 dollar system.
now let`s see: psOne had A LOT OF JRPGs. ps2 had A LOT OF JRPGs. could you name some real reasonS, why ps3 won`t have A LOT OF JRPGs ? Thank you. Again, ps3 won`t be selling forever for 600$, in time it will cost less. You know, that expensive things have more range to get cheaper, then cheaper one? Just to think, 17' LCD 3 years ago cost 2 times more, so if after 3 years ps3 will cost 300$ and x360 200$, what will you chose? 20GB, (+70$ for online) VS 60GB, wi-fi, blu-ray player,(HDD in all ver.) free online ? @12 i can name about 40 exclusive PS3 games, which will come in near 1,5 year. =) Do you need? =))
2kagmes confriemd 20 games for the PS3 while back, one of them will be this game just watch
oh boy... another fodder for everyone. i think this game looks good... but i wonder if it's better than "8 days". now that's one game i am waiting for! oh.. apart from the obvious ones! q: as for me, i'd rather have a console which promises to last atleast 5 years and which also has the same 3rd party games. and thankfully sony has got some kick ass exclusives!!! ((((:
Hope it`s not gonna be another rush port,anyway it still feels damn good don`t it..and mart please stop making up false stories of your own buddy..haha
I was taking a pole around my school(of 3000 people) and I found out that 8/10 peoples Xbox360 are or have been sent to the shop already. THATS JUST 1 YEAR!!! THATS SO SAD!!! No lie either for those of you who think im BSing it. Heres the names and the problem they had. Tony/Over-Heating;Brent/Power- Surge;Aaron/Red-Ring of Death;Ryan/Over-heating;James; Power-Surge;etc... Thats some sad stuff. Almost exactly 1 ear after you buy an Xbox they break. Wow, I wouln't buy something with a Fricken DEATHCLOCK!
I have no doubt you take lots of "poles". ...anyway, looking forward to K&L. Wonder if it will be a port or separate dev teams
I didn't interview 3000 people. Thats how big my school is. Time till your X in the Box dies: 4 Days, 3 Minutes, 37 Seconds
He made a joke about your misspelling. You should have said that you were taking a poll, not pole. Don't get offended, it's not that anyone thinks taking poles is a bad thing, it's just a funny joke. ;)
they have lost an exclusive big deal move on with your lives. I actually wanted this game, so another reason to chalk off buying a 360.
Hey crazyman you may of not known but sony has over 200 exclusives as of now alot of the bunch of which we have no knowledge of they even have exclusives lined up all the way to 2010 so yah i dont think there short of exclusives my friend the funny thing is i happen to go to gamestop yesterday and hear and emplayee tell a customer ps3 is s***t dont get it so i being a guru in debating went ahead and took him on lets just say by the time i left he was admitting that the ps3 was a superior console that will prevail in the long run then he admitted that the only reason he doesnt have one yet is the price but he was going get one in summer and as for the customer he did buy the ps3 one main reason for home and later on i got a guy to buy a ps3 at walmart so you see dont deny yourself of all the wonderful things the ps3 will have for you in the near future....
my friend, for that good deed you did at gamestop. (:
I wondered why these game weren't on PS3. Guess they were just waiting to see. Its like I said months ago, all the exclusives jumping about weren't any indication of devs love for Xb or hate for PS3. Its just simple numbers. Now that PS3's userbase is getting up there we're starting to see them jump the other way. Exclusives are going to be seen less and less this generation simply because next gen developement (for both consoles) is expensive with very large teams. This is where Sony are smart. They want exclusives and they're making them themselves More devs than anyone except EA. Maybe that will prove to be the difference this gen.
This game was never an exclusive. As matter of fact the first time I heard about this game, it was the PC. Anyways.. why on earth should this game be an exclusive? it's a FPS! Edit: You guys are always too quick to disagree with me. Let me try to explain my self better. There are enough great FPS on the xbox 360 specially the first party ones. So why should (THIS) game be an exclusive when IT IS A 3rd PARTY DEV MAKING IT. and why should microsoft pay big bucks to keep it exclusive!? When Microsoft as it is owns the top FPS games on any console? @bootsielon, your avatar fits you well... you are a nobody. EDIT #2: bootsielon, Now you have me confused. Are you acusing me of being a Sony fanboy? You wan't me to admit I was wrong? Well ok.. I admit it... I just don't know what I am wrong about? To be honest I don't know much about this game nor I care since this game is not my cup of tea. "The more exclusives you get, the more appealing your console becomes". Not everyone has to do what you do. Not everyone is married to a single console or the manufacturer. You see... I own a PSP cause I wanted to play GTA, I got a DS cause I wanted to play Final Fantasy, I got a PS2 because of the games. I never owned an original xbox since personally didn't give it a chance (was a Sony fanboy), I buy consoles because of the games. That's why I own a 360. Well, that and because of XBox live. I just love the service. I also own a PC and play games like WOW, Rappelz, Battle Field and others. And though I hate some of the things Sony have done in terms of forcing people to adopt blu-ray and making us pay $600 for a console. I will also buy a PS3, but not because I prefer the PS3 over the xbox 360 but simply because of games like Final Fantasy and Metal Gear. I play the games not the consoles. The console is just the device that runs the games and without the games it's useless (many people forget that). I am also thankful I don't have to be forced to choose like many of you. I am not rich but just like any hard working person in this site I can buy any console I want. But I will continue to do so because of the games.
...no Xbox 360 game is an exclusive then. Everyone knows that if it's on 360, it'll be on PC. Why tout Bioshock, Gears, Halo, Fable, Mass effect, etc... as exclusives? ROFL By the way, take that Ryu image off your profile. You're only disgracing Street Fighter's image for us real gamers (i.e. not fanboys). Edit: Bladestar, just admit you were wrong; the fact that it is not on PS3 but it is on 360 and PC pretty much makes it a 360 exclusive in the home console world. Many don't have a beefy set up to run those games, or prefer their TV as opposed to their computer screen to run their games (I know it's possible to use your TV screen as a display for your PC, the point is that most people aren't tech savvy). Still, if your point still holds, then nobody should get a 360, and wait till computers become cheap enough to play all those non-PS3 games but non-360 exclusives that are available on PC. It's also annoying that your initial point was: "It wasn't exclusive anyway, it was on PC", but now you change it to "Why should it be exclusive?". How convenient, but i'll do you a favor and answer to that (ho-hum) question: The more exclusives you get, the more appealing your console becomes (duh), even when you're right about the fact that Xbox 360 already satisfies FPS fanboys (but only, or mostly those, anyway). You also make the irrelevant claim, as if it somehow helped your argument "They are third party, so who cares?". Well, the same people that cared about DMC4 getting ported, and the same that would care if MGS4 and FFXIII would get. On a personal note, my brother is really excited for this game. Now it's a non-issue since it's on both consoles, so what reason does he have to buy a 360 now? He had a PS2, and I doubt he'd want to keep his PS2 to play on two separate consoles. Had Microsoft scored this game as an exclusive one, a bit more sales would have spurred; it all adds up. It's not just one exclusive, it's this, before Eternal Sonata, Oblivion, Enchanted Arms, maybe Culdcept Saga (very likely) and maybe even Bioshock. It's not simply PS3 losing exclusives, it's almost no game becoming exclusive, for 360 (And PC) or PS3. Please enlighten me (I'm not being sarcastic), what other KILLER 3rd party exclusives are or will be available for PS3 besides Bioshock? Oh wait, by your logic, WHY should it even remain as an exclusive, since it's THIRD PARTY and FPS after all.
Actually Blade...that list of 48 360 exclusives that everybody was screaming about...had Ace Combat, Kane and Lynch, Crossfire, Two Worlds, Timeshift and Eternal Sonata... http://www.ps3forums.com/sh... So whether you call them exclusive...still means the count is now down to 42. (actually when Project offset, Graw 2 and guitar Hero are taken off it's 39) In the end it's inhouse that counts...and paid for. And we know Sony has 150 games in production, of which a quarter have been announced. And we know which games Microsoft owns the rights to. So all this shouting about lost exclusives should end really. It's good for all. And it's nice the 360 will get a final fantasy game...the mmo one. Also I'd like to add some other 3rd party exclusive games...it's not just MG and FF. There is WarDevil, Tekken and White Knight Story... (I could list LA Noire..but everyone seems to point out that's not certain)...but you see WarDevil and WKS are very important games too. They'll be 3rd party exclusives this gen on both systems and that's a good thing as they are diff systems and need to be focussed on.
We're all nobodys ....
