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.
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
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).
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...
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 ....
This game can count as a stolen exclusive and you guys know it.Also stop counting the pc as a console i dont understand why you guys keep doing that.
because now you can connect your PC to a HDTV and play games just as on a console. I mean, while sitting on a couch.
Actually i did read somewhere that kane and lynch was for ps3 but i didnt think anything of it at the time
Only matter of time till Bioshock comes over to the Playstation 3..and did someone mention God of War 3?? that game is bein published by Sony and you will never ever see it on the 360..lol..MGS4 is confirmed for only PS3 Kojima said its made specifically to run on that hardware.Final Fantasy VIII and Versus sqaure basically confirmed it for only PS3 while doin the interview by sayin other part of final fantasy VIII nova series not quite exclusive which mean the other two games for the ps3 is indeeed exclusive..and if u go to their site its only listed for only ps3..so you xbots is out of luck. Dont worry their will be a price drop next year..
And for all of you Sony fanboys that are waiting for Bioshock... Start saving for buying a 360, just watch the image...
@ Nix (below)
Screengrab from X06 dude, go watch the show you'll see it's real nothing photoshopped there.
Plus: no multiplatform isn't a good thing in my view. That would make almost no use to buy a specific console. With the perfect premium online service included on the 360, I prefer the games to be on this platform.
I wouldn't like to see games go multiplatform and because of the PS3 lacking on different stages (difficult programming, missing online capabilities etc.) that the total budget of the game will hurt other versions because of the PS3 troubles.
For real, I think Sony deserves to be the Nintendo of 10 years ago. Going from nr. 1 to nr. 3. Just to learn again how they have to please the consumer the next time around again. Not by lying. Not by pushing a BluRay player as a gaming device. Punishment for what they've done lying about PS2 so the Dreamcast wouldn't pick up by people waiting for the PS2 that didn't have the power they said. They need to learn their lesson this time around
anyway, that's exactly what sony kinda boasted with DMC4. q:
it's ok mart... it's only a game. you call yourself a gamer... shouldn't you be celebrating that it's coming out in both the consoles so that more gamers can enjoy this game intead of this stupid jingoism?
@mart: the image looked very tacky. that's why i said looks like a bad photoshop job.
anyway... i think the more 3rd party goes multi-platform the more "gamers" get to play more games no matter what system they have. the MS, Sony can continue churning out exclusives for their own respective consoles which will obviously take advantage of the each console.
the only choice the gamers will have to make (those who can afford only one system) will be:
i. a system that will last the next 5 years (PS3) or,
ii. the one which keeps getting upgraded almost every year (360).
now.. don't tell me i am wrong because last time i heard - MS said they were taking the ipod route for 360, i.e. every new 360 every year.
mart, tell me, is that why you hate sony so much because it killed dreamcast? because we absolutely know very well that you hate sony a lot but we just don't know the exact reason why.
i`m excited about kane and lynch.
as for "it wasn`t a 360 exclusive"
why did all you guys always bring up that title, during your name dropping sessions.
its funny that the games that ms and devs say ARE exclusive stay that way, games that were never sed to be exclusive but were not confirmd for the ps3 but do get confirmd people think its another 360 exclusive lost, ms or devs of this game never sed it was exclusive,so the 360 hasnt lost anything,oblivion,saints row etc were on 360 fist because it was the only next gen console out, are people that blind to see that or r u all wraped up in ur sony blankets to see it?
now if bioshock, too human or sumit like that goes multi then its a exclusive lost, this isnt
BUT many a fanboy in here kept listing it in there " teh 360 has blah , blah , blah, kane and lynch, blah blah as exclusives". so blame the fanboys.
I said it and some said i was crazy.. I asked if it was an exclusive cause i saw the promo with the PS3 brand on the box in a shopping mall and got 4 or 5 replys saying i was dreaming..
Oh well i'm just exited about this .. I'm looking forward to this game..
Ohh yea I will play it.. On my PC, and what a beast I will be able to while i have Lair or Heavenly Sword On the PS3 paused.
Sweet, who needs a 360 when u have a good computer?
noone needs a xbox360. by the way xbots cry it was not exclusive. but who said that assasin creed (for example) was exclusive ? noone, you see the point? fact is, because the userbase of the ps3 is not so big like the xbox360 userbase at the moment, its understandable that some exclusives got lost, but this will change and we should see more and more exclusives for the ps3.
Though the K7L exclusivity was shot down months ago, and though I have no intention of playing either of these games since they hold zero appeal to me, it's good to see confirmation that the PS3 is picking up another fairly big title. More diversity for the platform is always a good thing.
never heard of these games but cool i guess
Great for PS3 only owners. I had no idea Crossfire was ever condsidered a 360 exclusive.
Also stop bickering , why is this site not moderated ? There is nothing wrong with everyone enjoying a game ?
This is finacial in nature though , this has nothing to do with the success of the PS3 or the decline of the 360. This is about money , dev costs and the death of the 3rd party exclusive.
"This is finacial in nature though , this has nothing to do with the success of the PS3 or the decline of the 360. This is about money , dev costs and the death of the 3rd party exclusive."
Thats why sony fanboys should be wary about mgs4 and ffXIII
I agree , to a point , I'm starting to just wish Kojima gives the 360 a new IP like he said he was thinking about.
bored sleeping at work
i come on this site alot during the day causes it passes my day at work.
but this is lame, are ppl going to argue every single game that was an exclusive, a timed exclusive and this company stole this exclusive
what's next??? x360 or ps3 looses an exclusive to a barney game and same argument???
well both sony and M$ are starting to loose big exclusives....
so saints row, ninja gaiden,eternal sonata, kane and lynch, bioshock. looks likes the ps3 is stealing some exclusives also.
EA Eidos Capcom........ are all in for the money... gamers have to accept it and figure out.. what console exclusives and brand they love more.
not only is it published by sony, but they have development rights to, the PS2 games were developed by sony santa monica
LOL @ when Kane and Lynch was "exclusive", to sony fans it was "just another shooter"... now that it's being ported.. everyone's excited LOL
If so many exclusives are going both ways, I'll just stick to my 360, get the better versions and save money. No need to buy a PS3 other than FF and MGS. Most games are going to be on 360.
Also, with all these 360 games which FIT ONTO A DVD going to Bluray, it just goes to show that Sony is pushing Bluray and it's not even necessary.
Oh how wrong you'll be.
In the near future there's nothing worth buying a PS3 for. Right now you're just paying for potential. Like I said, lower the price, give me more good games and i'll buy a PS3 (different post)
"Right now you're just paying for potential."
"In the near future"
Doesn't potential mean in the near future. You do realise that the games that make the console worth buying are out before final fantasy and Metal Gear.
I'm not really a fan of either of those games...Metal Gear is something I'll enjoy, but it's not the reason I'd buy the ps3. And I only buy a console for games
Would I be right in saying that you have not researched the games that are coming to the ps3...and havent watched the trailers or read the previews? I agree it's not really a reason to buy it now...but I havent bought it yet.
I'm buying the console for Heavenly Sword, Uncharted, Lair, Ratchet, 8days, LBP, Eydentify (im deadly serious). There are many more, but I though I'd list the ones I am most excited about. Put at the top the first 2...those to me are the most exciting things to happen to gaming.
I've been watching HS for 3 years...if it was on another console...I'd buy that console. Also with a dev like Naughty Dog who are going to change the way we see game animation and graphics with Uncharted...I wouldn't miss out on that for the world.
ps. "In the near future" is very different compared to "No need to buy a PS3 other than FF and MGS."
I don't want to wait until next year for good games. The games coming out this year have been running better on 360 (most of them). I own a PSP and DS also. It's not like I hate Sony and Nintendo. Right now, this year, there are better games on 360.
Okay, now it turn for Too Human, Mass Effect, Bioshock (this time officially), and Alan Awake.
Alan Wake is published by MS.
as are Mass Effect & Too Human
it's a dirty shame to see you lose any bubbles,period.You speak rationally and never knock others from what i've seen.
And to think your bubbles have been popped just because you've
stated your opinion.Gotta love spiteful Ps3 fanatics.
Two to go. What's this game about again?
