Medal of Honor Airborne will be available August 24, 2007 in Europe and August 28, 2007 in North America for the Xbox 360 videogame system from Microsoft and Windows PC and in November for the Playstation 3 computer entertainment system.
Do developers suck, is the PS3 too hard to develop for, or the effort in doing a good job is not worth it?
The last two.
When you throw in random pieces of hardware without fully looking into compatibility, it will make it hard. The fact they came and used hardware that was so different to current architectures, they made it harder and shot themselves in the foot.
The 360 on the other hand is getting all these games on time, it's also getting tons of timed exclusives when it shouldn't be, like this here.
And because of the difficulty, developers are just ditching Sony, ala Kengo Zero, Art of War, etc aswell as all their old exclusives going to the 360, as such as Devil May Cry 4, LA Noir, etc.
Finally, games that were either announced for the PS3, or games that were PS3 exclusives are being taken off the system totally, ala Beautiful Katamari, Fatal Iniertia.
I'm honestly suprised the PS3 is actually selling at all. But until MGS4 or FFXII (I'm not saying they will) 'Jump In', it'll sell, but where do Sony go after their 2 goldenboys are released?
Xeoset,youre just a blind fanatic xbot liar,DMC 4 or LA Noir, etc. going multiformat has nothing to do with difficulty you stupid fk(money), I'm honestly suprised that people like you actually exist(great example of stupidity)
Who ever keeps agreeing with you and people like you must be extreme Sony fans! I've noticed that a lot here on this site and don't understand why So many Sony fans are trying so hard to stick together and click agree or disagree for anything pro Sony even though they know dang well they shouldn't have! Denial must be a very strong emotion!
Ahhhh, the 'Offensive Sony Fanboy', a very populated breed. Any form of pointer that Sony has done this bad, or Sony isn't doing to well here and he'll attack.
Usually habits PSU or SPG, but is known to come out and troll, spamming 'ZOMG, RroD lolololllolololllo!!1!', only to be shown up by his own lack of logic, knowledge and common sense.
You almost offended me, would you like a cookie for your attempt?
EDIT: Bubble for Candystop. You're a smart guy.
the ps3 is tough to develop for but that being said has more advantages than disadvantages. Extra cell processing power and blu ray capacity. Xbox easy to develop for, has 33% rate but if there is one feature i have to give msoft credit for is xbox live. i hardly pay for membership though jst love the free dwnloads but every once in a while i pay for gold membership. PS3 sales are slow because of lack of titles and the high price point. If sony dropped the price of their player by 200 because i doubt 100 will have a long lasting impact and then they released killer titles that really showcased the consoles power then a lot of people still sitting on the fence won't hesitate to make that jump. In the case of ps3 being hard to develelop for, this is only a temporary issue as more devs get a chance to work on the system they will slowly start to understand its advantages and push it for power
Funny how none of this was ever a problem last gen for games ported from the PS2 to the Xbox which turned out better then the PS2 version.
does anyone really care about this game cuz i sertinly dont than again i might be the only one that dosent care;)
I see plenty of other games I would rather be playing than this one.
MoH is a great series. It's easy to pick up, has solid gameplay and has a few great musical scores.
It's an easy game to love.
Unfortunatly, there is already way too many amazing titles I need to pick up for the 360, a few for the Wii aswell. I'll hopefully find this in a bargain bin sooner or later.
Dunno about you xeoset; for me the series went down after frontline and Allied Assault(Pc only, awsome game). the people who made allied and pacific assault(never played it) broke away to make call of duty series. ever since they did that any MOH ive played sucked(Rising Sun had me riding on an battle elephant? wtf was that $hite!?). always good music, but thats what i use CD players for.
The problem i see is that and please don't take this as a fanboy comment I am mearly resaying what others have said.
The PS3 and 360 are built VERY differently, and with the 360 being built more like a computer and their developer tools being really good (again from what has been said) it makes it a lot easier to start the and make the game on the 360 because you have a lot less prep to do so to speak.
However this is a double edged sword because when you want to port it to the PS3 it needs a lot of retooling and a lot of studioes don't have the time or resources to really get it up to snuff so the bigger companies delay it to get it done and the smaller ones well they look or preform worse
I have heard (read) the same elsewhere too. The thing I have to add, is that it would be cheaper (more efficient) to start developing on a multiport on the PS3. It's easier to go PS3->XB360 than the opposite that is.
Look at Gran turismo 5, it could be delayed untill september 2008 (confirmed by jeux video) Its getting terible now and sony need a plan to bring the ps3 back, BUT WHAT? Killzone, eight days???? E3 may change alot of opinions about the ps3. My opinion is simple even though a own a ps3, but here it is -
1. Cut $200 off the price
2. Fix the online, we need more options like live etc. Custom soundtracks.
3. They need to buy more 3rd party exclusives, (sony fans are not impressed by this bulls*it)
Thats my opinion. Could it happen? wait and see.
Call of duty, and brothers in arm are both superior gameplay wise, and graphically to this game. I still don't understand why people buy it though.
For the 3 people who disagreed, can you please name the ww2 game that is worst then this?
I still think Medal of Honor Frontline is one of the best ww2 games, mainly because of the score that was done. Plus Airborne looks more innovative than previous ww2 shooters with the non-linear gameplay.
they just released Hour of Victory and that game sucked @ss.
Boy Ken Kunturagi really dropped the ball this gen.Nice work.
Another reason why the PS3 sucks when it comes to games available on the xbox 360.
Oh yeah,a moronic Sony fan.
Can,t wait to get this for the 360.
These guys just keep trying the PS3, well atleast its not delayed till next year or something, but like I have to repeat myself again, the xbox360 doesnt get its game delayed because it was built on that platform first where as when you port a 360 game to PS3, you have to recode it again just for the PS3, its not a simple paste and copy, and thats what you guys have to understand but then again you dont want to understand, you much rather throw punches as to why PS3 owners have to wait, but once devs start using PS3 as their main platform there wont be as much delay.
Too human, mass effect, forza 2, two worlds, lost planet, and blue dragon. All these games have been delayed for over 2 months.
Forza was delayed for a week
Lost Planet wasn't delayed
Mass Effect is due Sept 1st, the end of the Australin Winter as promised
Blue Dragon is still comiong out August 3rd
Too Human will probably be delayed, seeing as it was meant to come out 8 years ago.
Forza 2 delayed from holiday season to march.
Lost planet was announced in winter, and ended up in February.
Mass Effect, remember all those rumours regarding a may release date? Then they announced it for september, and now being delayed again?
The fact some games are delayed on 360 as well isn't the point. The ones you mention are "exclusives" from what I gather. Remember those?
We're talking about a multi-platform game that is only delayed on the PS3. That's the important point.
Whats new...This is getting a little out of hand and something needs to be done about the release or lack of releases on the Playstation 3.
Every game that is multi platform seems to be delayed on the Playstation 3 and this can not be good for any future person looking to buy into the console gaming community.
I mean if you walk in to a shop and you want a Playstation 3 with a few games ,Then to be told its out on the nintendo wii and xbox360 but not on the playstation3 for the next few months..[what you going to buy]Thats another Lost Playstation 3 sale lost.
I just can not understand what with all this Playstation 3 fiasco,Seems Sony are hell bent in shooting themselves in the foot,Either they are plain ignorant and stupid or they know something or have something planned that is going to get the gaming public excited again.
To be honest with you i have hardly played the playstation 3 since i bought it and it might as well get boxed back up.
Only Ninja gaiden sigma this Friday will make me turn it on,But this is just a remake of a game i played 3 years ago.
Guys are funny, this isn't about the game being delayed, it's about trying to find things to bash Sony over, the game could have been "Take me back to the 80's, greatest arcade games" you would be saying "LAWL PS3 IS SUX, 360 4 LIEF" etc.
Word to the not so wise, Medal of Honor being delayed isn't the end of the world, isn't the end of the PS3, isn't going to bring Sony to it's knees, isn't going to make PS3 owners go out and buy a 360, etc, etc. Sorry
It's not like MOH was supposed to be a killer app anyways. Now if this was KZ2 or CoD then xbots could bash all they want because those are supposed to be some great looking apps on the PS3!!
It's been delayed for all systems about twice this year!
And still they can't get it finished on time for the PS3, how strange
who cares.. COD4 is right around the corner of that release
COD4 >>>> MOH:A
I second that! I LOVE MOH but CoD is going to OWN!!
That Transformers movie was the sh@t! I got to go see it again.
Im already enjoying Rainbow Six (which actually has turned out to be a very good game on the PS3),NInja Gaiden out this week and living up to and surpassing the HYPE for it, Transformers (more my sons cup of tea but I still enjoy some of it),The Darkness (looks GREAT on the PS3), and many other titles that are out now, not to mention that I have LAIR,Stranglehold,Madden (I know I know but it's a great party game),Heavenly Sword, Home, R & C Future,the white hot WARHAWK, on reserve, so to me this news is like "ok and?" lol
Spin it however you want, but not even being able to rent the game until 3 months after its initial release has to be at least SOMEWHAT annoying. It's certainly not GOOD... If the same thing happens with Brothers in Arms, or CoD4, or both, then Sony will really need to start figuring out how to assist 3rd party developers. Otherwise, 360 doesn't just have a year's head start, but it'll get a headstart on the games as well.
hell even the jacktard himself said sony doesn't "pay for development" they "earn it". HAHA
It's called a learning curve dumb@ss. And before you call the CELL "garbage" why don't you do some research on it first because if it was garbage, then why is IBM going to be using it in their next supercomputer?? So go do some research then come back and try to b!tch the CELL out.
maybe a rent for me, I was very disappointed by this game on consoles I had Finest hour for both ps2 and xbox, but i loved allied assault online on pc
out at a later date or canned on ps3 games compared to 360.
as a multi format gamer this is not a good trend to see.
i'm glad i still get to play this game on 360 but....
Sony need to HULK UP !
I WANT WAR !
I for one don't plan on buying any WW2 game this year(sick of them) and I do have a 360 elite, The games that I buying is Lair, warhawk, heavenly sword, Socom, Uncharted and Assasin's Creed as you can see I have more than enough games to keep me satify this holiday season and when I'm done I go to ebay and buy Halo3 for $20 so I can finish the fight.
SO 360 is getting another multiplatform game first..WOW i hope they have more than multiplatform games
Sony doesn't sufficiently help third party developers. These devs need more support because of the exotic hardware of PS3. Thats why first party exclusives are looking way better than third party with the exception of MGS4 and maybe a dozen others.
Another game delayed, i'm glad i own both.
and I am tired of games being delayed or canceled on the PS3.I dont go around taking up for sony every time bad news come out about the PS3.I am tired of hearing SONY ONLY fans crying lazy developers or when a game like MOH comes to the 360 first they say that game wasnt about sh@t anyways.The bottom line is I love to play my XBOX360 it is the real deal when it comes to true nextgen games.JACK the president of sony said in the article on the front page, we as in SONY do not support developers then how in the hell am I supposed to support my PS3.PS this is from a real GAMMER not some dumb fan of 1 system.
You PS3 owners must have the patience of saints.
If you dont plan on supporting both systems I feel sorry for you guys,because this is not first or the last game in developement that will come out on the 360 first and then delayed on the PS3.It takes to long to make games on the PS3 take DARK SECTOR for an example the PS3 is the leading console for that game and it has been pushed back to 2008.If the 360 was the leading platform it would have came out in 2007.
Just give us KILLZONE II, Folklore, FFXIII et al, UT'07, MGS4, LBP, HS, LAIR, WARHAWK, HOME and GT5 and let it be. When the games are ready, they're ready. It's not going to make SNE people buy a 360 visa - versa. That's it. Some people think that playing on a superior system is worth the *wait. Think about it. =]
Unreal Tourn. 3 is mulitplat. What about Halo 3 Crackdown Bioshock Mass Effect Blue Dragon Halo Wars Too Human Lost Odyessey C&C3 Ace Combat 6 New Splinter Cell blah blah blah. stop cheerleading one system douchebag raiders and look foward to good games.
"Some people think that playing on a superior system is worth the *wait. Think about it. =]"
you mean the superior system which uses an inferior GPU which is one of the most important components of a VIDEO GAME MACHINE, ha ha sony kids are too funny.
No buddy you are waiting because unlike micro sony did not ask devs what was important for them in a videogame console, they didn't do a survey during development and ask their fanbase what features they wanted in their next console, they didn't work hard on dev tools for developers, they didn't cater to the people who matter the most in the videogame industry= gamers & developers. Now what they did do is side with the Hollywood studio's greed for developing a HD format that was suppose to prevent piracy which btw it doesn't, hackers are amazing you can only hope to contain them, not stop them but none the less this was so that the filthy rich studios could make more money than they are already making and of course sony would benefit from poo-ray players and poo-ray movie sales, too bad for sony that they mis-calculated because other than the loyal sheep nobody wants poo-ray movies and by the time the war is even close to matching DVD, direct digital distribution will do the same to the movie industry it did with the music industry making physical disc storage a so-so market far surpassed by download content.
so once again the poo-ray3 is a mix-match of the powerful but not efficient for gaming Cell and a laughable at best RSX GPU, among other components that aren't optimal for gaming, so the best feature of the ps3 is indeed its poo-ray movie capability which was sony's focus from the begining, still the problem is real gamers don't want to play inferior games for $600 or $400 for that matter so a price cut won't do much and because sony lost focus thats exactly what you will get from the devs, its not their fault why would anyone expect devs to be able to make superior games on hardware that has inferior GAMING capabilities. so those that believe that the ps3 will somehow majicaly surpass the 360 games when devs get the hang of it are only lying to themselves or brainwashed by the sony pr machine cause you can't make sugar from sh!t, poo-ray3 player is a mix-match of ineffiecient gaming hardware, complex hardware does not equal superior hardware so although yes there will be small amount of improvments like any system does but over the yrs it will never surpass the next gen gaming capabilities of a console that was built for one purpose and one purpose only= GAMING. yeah I know it has reliability issues but at least thats a fixable problem, and it wasn't done on purpose since its costing micro alot of money for repairs and warranties along with public embarrassment but hey thats fixable like the PS2, but how is sony going to fix what they did on purpose= including the wrong hardware architechture all together in the poo-ray3? well they can't not until the ps4. once again sony kids=
Sony needs to get on top of its third party support. I'm giving them one more year then I'm going to be done with them if they don't get there fvcking act together. I will just use it for blu rays only
one more year? That's a long time. =] Well I'll be seeing you around. You'e sitting on a system built for the ages. It will all become so much clearer in the coming months. Cheerio

That's all they care about...Blu-Ray. They can make a TON more money off of Blu_ray movies than they can make off of games. That's why Sony isn't giving the game developers the support they need...there's no money in it for them.
I think despite everything and all the delays, the ps3 and 360 will both do very well, I mean look at Sigma it seems to be doing pretty well. I think E3 will surprise everyone on both sides. The b!tch of it is just waiting another dam week. This week is going SOOOOO slow.
You must have a magic PS3 to call it the superior gamming system,because my PS3 is getting its ass kicked by my XBOX360.
I am a little magical. Choice is *key. That's why I always choose freedom - no one forces me to play PlayStation, I just prefer it. Feel free to make your own choices my friend, that's how it works. =]
Odd, I thought people were saying PS3 WAS the lead platform for MOH. I was worried 360 would get a port and was wondering how good or bad it would be. Now (I guess) I can take comfort in knowing 360 is the lead platform, so if the game is bad then we dont have a crpy port to blame. I expect it not to be bad however. MOH have always been solid games. Not quite COD quality but pretty fun to play. Looking forward to it.
I do keep wondering why they don't make it first on the PS3 and port over to the xbox as that port would seem easier. But I guess if they do that then it (right now) would take a lot longer to get the game out which could affect the bottome line of these companies. They dont make money while making the game only when selling it. So having all versions delayed could cause them more issues then just getting the 360 version out and then going back for PS3. This attitude may change as the PS3 gets a larger user base.
The developement on MOH:A started with PS3 as lead platform but now this after Fatal Inertia... Sony really needs to show developers how to program for PS3 and Cell.
doesn't PSN use a universal gamertag for all games and friends? The only reason why i ask is how are you suppose to keep track of your friends if you have sooo many Gamertags? I for one like to know the people i play with VIA their GT so i dont play with punks.
So why so many? I dont understand
I have more than one PS3, and UK and Japanese PSN accounts so that I can keep my friends from one place, well...in one place. My friends from the old PS2 online service, my N4G friends, my geek.com friends, etc...
I can then add all of my "favorite" gaming friends to each one of these accounts so that no matter which account I log in under, they're all still there. Plus, I get access to the Japanese stores and UK stores offerings, i.e. - Lair English ver. trlr., Mainichi Issho, FolkSoul demo, etc... I love it man. Once this sytem really gets going with HOME and all it should really shine. It's working great for me so far, so I'll guess we'll just sit back and see how the saga unfolds.

Whats up with all the delays.. Drop Katamari and put effort in getting titles like this on time.
WELL YOU GUYS GOT COD4 RIGHT? ;P .......I HOPE
the only good news sony fans have is promises.
and the bad news..are reality...
THIS IS WAITING!!!
exactly y they keep delaying it. marketing strategy, development problems,etc.
I hate waiting.
I should have bought a 360
man stfu all your comments are "uhh why did I buy ps3, uhh I hate it, uhh I wasted money.." stop crying you little b!tch people like you piss me off, go buy a 360 and shut the fuk up
Does it magnify your own buyers-remorse?
