After the shocking announcement of Quantum Theory releasing on the XBOX 360, Tecmo officially announced today that both versions will have a simultaneous release on March 25, 2010...
typo - March 25, not 27
eh, not interested anymore. I think I'll wait for some reviews.
When this game was exclusive it was the next big thing, with people defending it left and right. lol I have always been interested in this one. The screenshots just looked "cool" to me (love the use of color in the game). Hopefully the gameplay will be good.
PS3 can not survive on only exclusives. They don't sell well enough. Nintendo on the other hand does quite well at this, but still try to attract 3rd party. Hey, if the game is good, it will only be PS3 loss.
March...good luck to this game haha...
Riiiiight...... Even before it went multi, PS3 fans thought it wasnt going to be good. Me personally, it has a cool concept and all but I'm not really excited for the gameplay based on what I have seen.
"PS3 can not survive on only exclusives" yes it can, and most ppl thought the game looked rough as hell exclusive or not.
@bubbles: people were defending this left and right? please show me all these ps3 fanboys defending it left and right, i have seen next to no one excited for this game so stop trying to take a jab at ps3 fans for no reason, it's a gears of war clone that looks much worse then Gears of war, exclusive or not this game won't push either system in any way and it was NEVER considered "the next big thing" so stop talking sh1t.
I love me some Gears of War. I'd gladly buy a well crafted game that looks and plays as well as Gears. But based on what I've seen of Quantum (or whatever the hell they're going to call it) this game looks like it will fall short. Way short. As a PS3 owner, I crossed this game off my list a long time ago. As a 360 owner I'm certainly not excited about it now. And I have to agree with Hayden. March? Really? My gaming dollars are already spoken for that month...
It looks like a few of you have selective memories. I can clearly remember when people were defending this game (again, back when it was a PS3 exclusive).
Since my character got called out in this thread, I dug up this little gem. :D It looks like a lot of people have changed their minds about this game. I wonder why that could be... http://www.n4g.com/events_e...
http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-... http://n4g.com/gaming/NewsC... http://n4g.com/events_e3200... http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-... Here are some comments just incase you dont want to click the links. mikeslemonade - 403 days 13 hours ago PM Track Ignore 1.12 - Enviroment changes so only possible on teh Cell and Blu-ray. Saaking - 84 days 22 hours ago PM Track Ignore 1.6 - Looks like Gears with better graphics and a Japanese influence. The guy playing seems like he has no clue what he's doing though. Hopefully they'll release the demo on Jap. PSN. soon.
I know people will turn a blind eye to that link so i thought i would pull some comments from it... enjoy; "1.1 - Wow is right. Last time we saw this game it looked like poo. Now it looks freakin epic (no pun intended). I am now officially exited for this game. I love E3." "1.5 - Impressive. Action looks fast and furious too. And the graphics are incredibly sharp and fluid. Pre-ordering this today! " "1.6 - OMG!!!! this was the least expected game to WOW me.... I must tell you..... IT'S FREAKIN AWESOME!!!! I want this now!!!! It's like Gears meets DMC or GOW... Mythical tale and throw in A Gun and Sword characters and you have a blockbuster.. The visuals seem awesome and so does the gameplay with co-op style battles. Also THE TOWER!!!! Just look at the way it changes shape... I can't wait for this. These Japanese guys sure know how to lure people with mythical characters... But hell I love it that way. Btw: Did they just change the name to only Quantum? I didn't see theory anywhere.... " " 1.14 - Why does it feel like the PS3 has stolen another exclusive? lol Well not really but after this game releases. Nobody on the PS3 side is going to need/want Gears anymore! I'm excited for this game!" " 5.10 - hm.... yep it is influenced by GeoW a bit, but there is one core difference that sets them apart IMO. Quantum Theory interests me, Gears does not. I'm a huge jrpg fan, so you should try to see where i'm coming from before flaming me " " So according to you 360 guys. Everygame in 3rd person with big soldiers talking smack is a gow clone. Every fps shooter with alien weapons set on another world is a halo clone. According to pc gamers, every game set on an island is a crysis clone. Seriously though, looked pretty good, changing features of the environment. Should be good fun, and with co-op as well. Nice. " anyway, you get the picture..... as a ps3 owner myself, not interested. there are better games out. As a 360 owner also, not interested, again there are better games coming out.
what happen to the mindset as a gamer inside all of you? always a fanboy wars in whatever article possible! now both PS3 and 360 owners will be able to play the game but somehow we're fighting like this game is a confirmed sh1t and both parties don't even want to keep it? feel sorry for Tecmo. I was never a fan of gears but the early vids of quantum kinda made me interested. here's hoping that it will at least have a good story and I might consider picking it up later on when it's cheap and I have nothing else to play! (like most multiplats I own - BFBC, Dead Space, Bioshock etc)
So you saying those same people who liked the game then that they ALL don't like it now? Ok, you showed their anticipation for the game now show their comments now saying they don't like the game anymore. See, what you guys do is bundle ALL PS3 gamers in one cause that's how you view the PS3 base. Those gamers that liked QT and were looking forward to it back then are still looking forward to it now... unless you think QT will sell zero copies on launch or something.
@ Chubear lol... well you only need to look at Saakings comment for starters.. it was the first post... you know, the one right at the top which we were replying to in the first place. and if the others still like the game kudos to them, i don't see them anywhere else defending it though which tends to be the usual reaction. we were just pointing them about because someone else said they had not read Any comments from ps3 people being excited about this game before when it was exclusive. they failed... now you.
Anyone else get the idea that maybe Tecmo intentionally announced the game as an exclusive to draw hype, fully knowing the game would be multiplatform. How else would they announce a 360 version this month and have it ready to release side by side with PS3 version. This game was touted as PS3 exclusive as late as TGS. Can a 360 port be made that quick?
I just keep thinking about how they blatantly lied about it being exclusive. It kind of makes me not want to support the game.
They only said it was exclusive to generate hype amongst PS3 gamers and planned on revoking that to generate hype amongst 360 gamers.
Yeah i'm not buying the game. The moment it was announced multiplat, it's potential went straight out the window. I'n not gonna support lairs in this gaming business.
I was very disappointed when they announce it'd go multiplats. These lying devs aren't gonna get my support. They lied to PS3 fans, so hopefully they'll be able to sell their game to 360 fans.
It always looked like a horrible game, even when it was a ps3 exclusive. If its a good game I will be very surprised.
I just don't want to give my money to a company willing to lie to us. I would understand if they were covering the platforms up, but they came out and sold it as an exclusive that would take advantage of the platform. I'm still looking forward to it but I will not buy it now. It'll get put in my GameFly Que.
i was excited that it was exclusive meaning more time and money but now its just a waste
Do they not want their game to sell? Trying to fit in next to beasts like GoW3 and FFXIII?
Maybe their starving for money and can only release it around that time to generate income for the company. Other than that i don't know who would be so stupid to pit their multiplat game next to GOW3 and GT5 lol.
I'll be buying FFXIII, Yakuza 3, and GoWIII. Sorry but I won't have the time or the dollars to spend on a cheap Gears of War ripoff.
What little excitement I had for this game dwindled when I saw gameplay footage. Just get Uncharted 2 for your TPS fix, people.
or Gears if you are on the other side of the spectrum. U2 n GeOW2 seem like the logical choice over this game. (depending on what console you have)
Well I guess its pretty cool that the soundtrack of the game and a voucher code to unlock an extra character is included. I mean its always good to get free bonuses, right?
I don't consider paying $10 extra to be free.
i like buying exclusive games recently sony is on top of that, but when QT was announced multiplatform idk why i just lost interest, F*** YOU TECMO YOUR ALL A BUNCH LIARS, i hope u fail in sales
its now a defo no buy now, too many great games coming out march. gow3 gow collection (eu) gt5 heavy rain? modnation racers ffxiii bfbc2 bioshock 2 splintercell and id pick any of those before it.
You honestly think they can make their money back from development by only selling to ps3 owners.....Talk to ninja theory. Seems the only people who are complaining are people that was happy it was a ps3 exclusive.
Yeah talk to Kojima Productions/Konami too.. Oh wait that 4M sales says otherwise.
"Yeah talk to Kojima Productions/Konami too.. Oh wait that 4M sales says otherwise." Snuka is right...just look at the first post. He is comparing this game (a new IP) to Heavenly Sword (also a new IP), a fair comparison. What you are doing is comparing it to a franchise that has had 20+ years to build up a large fanbase that would buy it regardless (gotta admit, it does help). ...seems obvious to me, but what do I know, I'm just a gamer. LOL @ your agrees.
Ya if something isn't exclusive to the ps3 there's always a select few of fanboys who complain in every thread about it. It doesn't even matter if the games good or not it's just terrible because it doesn't say "only on playstation" on the box. They apparently are so excited about exclusives that if one doesn't even look that interesting they'll praise it to death but then if it's announced as multiplat they say it sucks and think the developers lied to them directly as a person when it's just business.
Missing out on a lot of great titles for no logical reason. How dare you call yourselves gamers. You act like multiplatform titles are crap just because they're developed for more than one console...Fallout 3? GTA IV? Dead Space? You fanboys gotta understand that these games go multiplat because they have to try and make a profit! Look at Uncharted 2 for example. One of the best games of this gen, that thing basically was the symbol of the PS3. Damn thing didn't even make the top 10 list for November. You fanboys love your exclusives, but you certainly don't show it through sales. From a business perspective, I'd make a game exclusive for the 360 over the PS3 anyday. Multiplatform games consistently sell better on the 360 too. It's just business.
but my problem is that they straight up lied to everyone. It's not like they didn't know it was going to the 360 when they announced it. They were just trying to play people and that irritates me. Like I said above, I'm still looking forward to playing the game. I just wont be buying it. Plus, it has no co-op. WTF?
Not looking foward to it it looks kind of weird idk that's just me. Btw guys check you're emails for those of you who signe for the modnation racers beta I just got my code right now!!!! This is awesome. I can't wait 2 play it tomorrow thank you sony you guys are great!!!!
thanks dude without u i wouldn't have remembered it! i got mah beta code and theme! i know its off topic but i had to thank him =p
NINJA Gaiden 2 say Hi. PS3 fans are so happy to see a X360 former exclusive going to PS3..even calling NG Sigma 2 an exclusive.. Now, the situation is reverse, and Tecmo is a traitor now? What a bunch of hypocrites. But this is NG, it is the twilight zone of the gaming community.
360 owners don't even care about Ninja Gaiden going to the ps3! They don't get butthurt over these things. Sony fanboys always give me the impression that they're desperately trying to justify their reasons for purchasing their console of choice. If Mass Effect 2 or Splinter Cell Conviction were announced for the PS3 in the nearby future, you won't see this many 360 fans going apesh1t and calling the games "crap" because they're multiplat, i'll bet you that. Most of us will just shrug our shoulders, say "whatever," then continue gaming.
Love - Moving environments Hate - no coop? really? Think I'll STILL have to pass, and grab AoT:TFD instead.
with great games coming early 2010, i'm so not looking forward to this game, they might as well release it on PC that way maybe I can pirate it, but then again it could be a waste of bandwith
Shocking to who?
I barley flinched =P I think "shocking" for some game-hungry console owners (whom ever they may be)
screwthisgame is right... with more time and effort on an exclusive they wouldve have made an awesome exclusive game for PS3 more time and effort on the CELL now that its multi, it truely disappointed me WAS looking forward to BUYING this game NOT ANYMORE THOUGH
LOL to bad for you
passed on this games i had plans to buy it but not now im not intrested anymore theres to much aaaa titles coming next year for the ps3 so im happy with that anyway it would not be a lost to any ps3 fans at least the xbox finally got a game as well since they havent had much games to come out this year
Lose faith in this game because it's clearly perfect for co-op and they aren't going to implement it, because the idea behind it is ridiculously whack, or because it looks like a cracked-out (in the very bad way) Gears clone. It does seem to me though that they must have been planning to go multiplat for a long time, but that's nothing to get upset about, and nothing unexpected from techmo. Techmo games are usually technically somewhat impressive, but uninspired on the whole.
is it still a "GEARS CLONE" ? =P Nah /jk haven't seen enough to be interested yet, but looks fun =)
I honestly don't think this game will sell well on either platform. That is most likely the reason it went mult-platform in the first place. The game looks pretty lame if you ask me.
Limited Editions should only be for good games (usually sequels thay have established themselves) not for some mediocre game that will be overshadowed by God of War 3.
I may just rent this one, or try out the demo.
