Last Month in an interview with Ubisoft CEO, he hinted that the company currently have an exclusive game in development for the playstation 3. However, he refused to give out any details as what game it is exactly.
i always though timesplitters is namco's??
no Timesplitters series is by free radical
Before the PS3fanboys start getting there knickers in a twist and start boasting about Timesplitters 3 being a PS3 exclusive, just remember Assassin's Creed.....also published by Ubisoft!
They stated for months that Assassin's Creed was a PS3 exclusive, and look how that turned out!
Free Radical may want it to be an exclusive....but Ubisoft are in it for the cash, so I bet they will release it on every console they can, including the Wii.
I bet they'll be an time delay exclusive on the PS3 like what is happening for Haze, but for Ubisoft to turn down a few more million dollars for just one exclusive game would be mad!
Agreed, Ubi wants the money and the money right now is in multi-platform, the only way this would be an exclusive is if Sony paid for it to be and i don't think it's a big enough game to have Sony worry about it being an exclusive.
Put a friggin sock in it. What will you do if the exclusivity holds out and you'll be hacing bitter sweet after thoughts about what you said.
If it does actually turn out to be a PS3 exclusive (which I think it won't!), I'll buy it for my PS3!!
Simple, because I'll be purchasing my PS3 in October when the big titles start to emerge!!
So suck on that!!
no its not a namco game lol anyway this news sounds good for PS3 owners
Have you guys seen this game. It looks great.
-This game was amust have for anyone who loved 4 player split screen.
-It also had "thee" most options to date as far as customomizing match types.
-The character selection seemed to be the most robust
-the only game on consoles that had a Level Editor for a FPS shooter, that you could share online.
played this one, but is this something that is confirmed? or is rumored/speculation? I'm guessing if not, then just add a Question mark.
timesplitters really isn't a big game most people don't even know what it is
sadly thats true,
but Timesplitters 2 was one of the most fun fps i have ever played.
I liked timespliters gameplay but in many ways it did feel like goldeneye 2.0 with a REAL cheesy tacked on story. It was a very generic shooter in many ways. Fun but very forgetable.
Well this is cool another PS3 game. I hope there will be more info on the game at E3.
I tried this game when I was on a Ranbow Six, and Halo2 high, and I did not like it. I hope they improve it alot. What's up with all the shooters? I love shooters but darn.
remember Xbox fans gets a lot of sh!t because of FPS's, but a a lot of PS3 fans are loving them as well, when it is only on their console of course.(you can never have enough shooters).
Simply Developers are following the Western/European trends, and you guest it Shooters is the hot thing right now.
Currently the best game on the PS3 has been a shooter, and the same goes for the 360. Of course there are more games on the way, and you guessed it, more shooters.
Lol at the title, they have already finished the game and number 3 has been out for ages. EA and Free Radical have already said they won't make any more TS games, they want to make new IP's.
kool can't wait for this 1...i rememebr playin TS 1 that was a good 1 but 2 werent so good apart form the multiplayer. it was fun playin co-op story mode with my bro on TS 1...and the multiplayer was kool too weren't bad game if u ask me...its entertaining
I hated the TimeSplitters series until Future Perfect came out. If it follows that formula, I'm sure the game should turn out ok.
lets hope its really exclusive..
It's okay I guess.
free radical must be so rich then.making this a ps3 exclusive.free radical can,t be after a profit then.considering they making it for the ps3 which is the least favour console on the market.
Ahhh I thought they said Timewshift was ps3 exclusive! pfew, damn who cares about timeSPLITTERS, go ahead and take it sony.
Namco only announced it exclusively for PS3, because the 360 can't handle it. Sorry man, maybe HAZE will make you feel better, after Halo 3 is a disappointment, OH WAIT it won't, because it's a PS3 EXCLUSIVE!!
Ubisoft corrected their list and it's off now. I actually read it here that they said it was a mistake and PS3 is their only lead platform and they've only announced it for PS3. Do your research, but it WILL be an exclusive. Ubisoft is starting to reckanize! And I'm glad they're developing specifically for the CELL and RSX and taking advantage of Blu-ray, instead of creating games for the 360's lower level hardware and giving it to us. When Timeshift, Timesplitters, HAze, Uncharted, Lair, Warhawk, Socom, Heavenly sword all hit this year, we'll finally start to truly experience games that take advantage of the PS3.
(REGARDING HAZE)@above: no it's not, it's timed. it's on ps3, 360 and pc.
You'd be an idiot to disagree. The game is coming to all platforms, just watch the latest Free Radical interviews. Fanboys, ignorant as hell.
Free Radical basically says the game is lead on the PS3, and is making an appearance on the 360 and PC next year, with unclear release dates. That is the only truth.
"instead of creating games for the 360's lower level hardware and giving it to us." No need for the fanboy blabber. I'll be happy to see those games out for PS3 when they come, but this is not needed.
@below: Even better would be to watch the latest preview and hear the developers confirm it being on 360 and PC.
@ps3 fanboys: be in denial all you want, HAZE IS NOT EXCLUSIVE. it is timed. Just be happy that it is ps3 lead. Yeesh...
Anyway, cool that TS3 is coming out. If it's exclusive cool, if it goes multi, so be it.
to take a look at this link for Haze
But until then, it's nice to see developers build games exclusively ground up and learn about the PS3's architecure. It'll get them the BEST games, us PS3 boys will get the best experiences, they'll sell a bunch of copies, and it'll get millions of 360 boys still wondering why Halo 3 looks exactly or worst than Halo 2!
Yep even if Timesplitters 3 is only a timed exclusive, we know that it was developed on the PS3 first then ported over to the Xbox just like GTIV, Haze and assianscreed!
Good work to the developers of these games.
Except that GTA4 and AC were built on Xbox 360 hardware first you do know the first time AC was shown it was shown on a 360
Timesplitters 1 and 2 were published by Eidos not Ubisoft so there's a chance that it could be PS3 exclusive.
Uhm I've heard this about:
Do we see the connection? Time Splitters, also a Ubi game... I think Ubi is asking Sony for some money, like MS bought Splinter Cell: Conviction. Only thing is, Sony is not giving any cash, they don't have it laying around like MS has...
I couldn't be sad about Time Splitters 3 not coming to my 360, because the other Ubi games I want more. On the other hand, whats the source? Owww OPM UK... right...
Haze was announced on all platforms. Then, it was announced as timed (as it is). Some idiots just assumed that this meant it was a PS3 exclusive and went around saying that. Surely enough, this wasn't true, and it was re-confirmed as timed.
If timesplitters is PS3 exclusive I'll take it. And Assasins creed was announced PS3 exclusive before PS3 was released. Yeah some developers changed their mind because of slow PS3 sales. But at this point with Sales not being a surprise, if a developer announced a PS3 exclusive game, it has a very good chance of staying exclusive or atleast for a while. But to me timed exclusives are just as good as exclusives.
Haze was never announced PS3 exclusive, it's actually lead developed on PS3 and it's a timed exclusive. That's just a bonus there.
ubisoft never said HAZe was exclusive
Ubisoft didn't. Desperate sony fanboys did.
Caffman is right! What's with the disagrees? Haze was only ever announced as a timed exclusive, any news of it being an "exclusive" was just speculation.
I loved time splitters 2, but time spliters future perfect was not that good. I used to always play it on my ps2 with my cousins and guests. the game was amazing!
Timesplitters 2 was the best FPS of last gen,I can't wait for TS3,I don't care if its exclusive or not.
Why is it Ubisoft? Eidos use to publish the game then EA Games secured the license for publishing last game... So when did Ubisoft get it? (Also if you've actually read the magazine, they say it is indevelopment for the PS3, but doesn't mention anything about exclusivity)
But I love the TimeSplitters series... It'd be nice to see another game.
Sony can have timesplitters. It needs more games.
edit- no it was my fault. For some reason i figured Timshift. Timesplitter? i never played the 1 or 2. Now Timeshift is something i want
I too have the trailer off of LIVE....its good btw... anyway, I highly doubt it would be there if there was ANY question about it coming to the 360.
a big preview in the last issue of Xbox Magazine, where they showed gameplay for the 360 version. I don't even think it's "leading on the PS3".. This is nonsense. The 360 has already seen a demo almost a year ago, but it was not well received so they did a complete redux of the game.
EDIT: Wait, maybe I'm confusing Timesplitters with Timeshift as well... Can't verify it since I'm at work atm.
Yes this is Timesplitter NOT Timeshift....
and yes I agree....I could not stand Timesplitter games so let it go wherever.
Timesplitters is a great game, it breaks the mold & is the most enjoyable FPS I've played. Throwing a brick at a monkey! You don't get that in gears or resistance.
it just doesn't make sense since you'd be missing out on a HUGE 360 audience who have proven loyal supporters of the shooter genre.
If it was a platformer or a RPG, I could see it, but a FPS? I'm not buying it.
This would just be a mediocre FPS on the 360.
come on, we are talking about a "FPS" game..ya know one of an XBOX 360's fans delights. After thinking about that for a second, or a couple of post.
I ask myself, "what stupid company would not want to reap the REWARDS of XBL users/Xbox360 fans, as the Xbox platform has solidified itself with "FPS's" in general?
Of course I never played this game but it would make sense to bring out an FPS on the XBOX platform, from a business POV. Of course MS need to diversify it's gaming genres. It's doing that with RPG's but more Platformers are needed please, the Xbox 360 could be more known for just FPS's...
