Rumors had been going around that Beautiful Katamari Damacy for the PS3 was canned. Famitsu magazine have confirmed today that, the game has been cancelled for the PS3.
It isn'tgoing to be goty, or a great game. It will most likely be an okay game in the 6 range yet, this game always gets so much attention from both ps3 and xbox 360 gamers. I don't understand why this or fatal inertia gets all this attention for their mediocrity.
I'm an Xbox 360 fan.
I'd rather Katamari was PS3 only.
PS3 fans are totally blind, How the hell is losing a game ever a great thing. This sounds like denial and stupididty to me. You need to look into the light.
Yea, the game is a Xbox live downloadable title as well.
The Trend in News lately is to tell people games that are canceled on the ps3. I agree though these mediocre games are getting alittle too much attention.
I am curios how the Unreal engine will handle a racing game....
Katmari is different and not a horrible game, will be worth 5-10 dollars though.
Katamari is a great series.
This and the Katamari games coming to Xbox Live! Arcade will be amazing.
Also, I feel sorry for the people that have bought PS3's. They're really getting let down by not only Sony, but the Devs. that are promising them and not delivering. I can now honestly say I'm glad I cancelled my Euro PS3 Pre-Order, I lost £30 as a deposit, but saved a good £400.
And am not disappointed. I already knew what I was buying then. I wasn't paying attention to all the multiplat games due to me having a xbox 360 already. I bought it for rfom, and motorstorm. I am waiting for heavenly sword, r&C, lair, and uncharted.
I love my PS3, by the end of the year there will be to many game to play. I wish i had the time to play the all.
Don't feel sorry.
I'm perfectly happy with my PS3.
Lot's of good things are happening to the PS3. E3 is up, there's; Uncharted, Little Big Planet, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Killzone, Haze, Assasins Creed, Devil May Cry, Lair, Heavenly Sword, Ratchet and Clank, Pain, Warhawk, etc. well you get the picture.... lots and lots of awsome games..,,,
Who cares about Katamari. I don't, if it was coming to the PS3 it sure as hell wouldn't be at the top of my list.
Good for you Xeocet and stop lying about you ordering the PS3,this game is for xbotretards like you,very good news for ps3
Don't need to feel sorry for me. I love my PS3 and have no interest in Beautiful Crapmari. PS3 has a nice list of games on the way, which makes me really happy I bought a ps3.
well thats your opinion people like me love this game and want it on the 360
How many millions did M$ pay for this one?
The reason for this is because Namco is not happy with PS3 sales, I really doubt MS and a Japanese company talk about exclusives and stuff like that.
A heavy wallet can crush some competitors.
50 mill for additional content via xbox live.
not a big loss for ps3 owners
Sure as hell not a gain either
mention that it got canceled due to coding problem
Any Sony fan that dismisses this is as "no big deal" is full of
poo poo;crap;fecal matter;etc.
I'd be shocked by this!Shame.
People love this game and it's a crime it won't be coming to the
platform (PS brand) that helped make it a success!
Ok, so it's not coming out for the PS3. I'll just wait for the Wii version (which you know will most likely happen due to the explosive sales of the Wii)
Besides, this game doesn't offer anything next-gen graphically anyhow.
They just trying to make Playstation look bad!! that's just so wrong.
I've never like Halo or xbox 360.
Playstation 3 out performance xbox 360 in gameplay, graphics, controllers..........etc.....
Playstation is better than Xbox 360.
Can't wait until Killer Instinct 3.
Every Sony fanboy Ive heard, has the word "wait" in their post.
Really, go back and look, everybodys waiting.
And PS3 games keep getting cancelled, or loose their exclusivity, or look better on the cheaper console.
I guess deep down you are really waiting for the PS4.
as good or bad as this game is.. it will still be another game in their library... kinda like going to gamestop and seeing 230983082 PS2 games on the wall and like 20-30 xbox/gc games
I never understood why so many people would be disgusted about a variety in their gaming selection. If I were a die hard sony fan I'd be a little upset that this game got cancelled. As an owner of a VG console wouldn't you want as many diffrent types of games out there to try out
Microsoft pay lotta money just to get this game cancel
well Sony Playstation will and still own Xbox 360.
Nobody is buying xbox 360 since PS3 came out.
Everyone is waiting for Playstation is price drop then the big changes "BOOM"
PS3 rules..................rule!!! !!!!!!
You are a F'ing tit. GTFO.
The 360 is outselling the PS3 in every PAL Region and America, by double.
In Japan the PS3 is only selling an extra 4k units.
You have a blind opinion, you ignorant [email protected]
Get. Off. My. Internet.
????????????? Everybodys internet. You must be 12 years old
Stop sucking your mums C0CK, i think its getting to big for you, the PSTRIPLE is da best and you know it.......Dumb cunt.
This is cancelling
And I hate the news that Katamari was cancelled. I own a 360 too, but I wanted to get it for PS3 with Home trophies. So let's see:
Ace Combat, Eternal Sonata, Ridge Racer, Eternal Sonata... what next, Namco? Every day you're getting closer to being cancelled on my list of favorite developers, maybe you will stop being on my list of developers I buy from not soon after that. I'm not the only one here.
Anyway, I'm just mad, but I'm not sad, since there are still a lot of PS3 exclusives I want to play, and Katamari wasn't high on my list (hell, it wasn't even exclusive to begin with, but at least I planned on buying). This doesn't benefit 360 gamers at all, nor Playstation fans that already play the first three; it only hurts Namco. Does anyone consider it a system seller anyway?
There have been more exclusives announced for PS3 lately than exclusives lost. And by the way, If you're talking about Medal of Honor or Fatal inertia, they've been delayed, NOT cancelled. That also hurts a developer's bottomline. If I was Namco, I would have simply delayed both games. I personally think timed exclusives don't sell on the other system, unless the last system has extra content (See: Rainbow Six, Oblivion, GRAW2)
When you lose a game every month, in this case, two games cancelled in one week, it all starts to add up, to one big loss.
what the hell is going on in the land of Sony? Is there system really that hard to make games for? or are game companies starting to take a long hard look at install base?
Some blogger posts this and it's true, come on guys. There is no link to the source at all.
here ya go:
IT says the 360 only logo
and below is the note that readys that KD has been cancelled
it's odd though... almost all namco games have been announced as 360 exclusive or multiplatform... i wonder if Tekken 6 is next at E3... that would cause a systematic cataclysmic crash lol
Ya neva know,I'll say it again......ya neva....evuh..... know.
Could be.....good one ThaGeNeCySt.
Xbox controllers sucks big timer!!!
How can you play games with that kind of wacking controllers?
PS3 looks better and have better performance than Xbox 360.
u sir are a idiot, leave like that
BECUSE IF YOU HAD ONE YOU WILL KNOW HOW LAME IS THE CONTROLLER
Xenos > Cell > Xenon > RSX
512 > 256
...So, where's it performing better? Sales? Lawl.
EDIT: This is aimed at REAL-GAYmer
You mean 512 = 512.
This game is pretty much only selling in Japan, and XBOX 360 has such a small presence in Japan. Honestly, it's pretty much dead there. Why even bother with the 360 version? PS3 has sold over a million in Japan alone, and 360 is at about 200 000 I think. They should've just scrapped the 360 version and focused on the PS3 and Wii version, because those are the 2 consoles selling in Japan. I honestly never heard of this game until Michael Pachter bought it up on GameTrailers Bonus Round and said it only sells in Japan.
thats why they have a Wii version.....I think
It says the source is "Famitsu magazine have confirmed today that, the game has been cancelled for the PS3." <- No Screens? Nothing? I'm on famitsu and I don't see anything about it on the website.
PS3 is faster and have better graphics than Xbox 360.
Xbox fanboy are moving over to Playstation LOL!!!
Playstation owned Xbox fanboyz
I certainly am considering PS3 when good games come later this year or next year, I like good games but you sir are a moron
you are my master
You buddy....are giving Sony PS3 fanboys their bad name!
Your words are just......hmmmmmm...... so profound!
Aw,I apologize.You just love your system and that's cool.
MS owns Rare I don't understand your logic. Are you joking?.
There are some bitter fan boys in here.
You know this hurts i have not seen so many malice driven comments for awhile. This level of rabidness has not been seen on this site for almost a year.
I keep hearing This game's in Japanese taste only and the 360 is the wrong console for this game because the 360 is dead in Japan. Has is ever crossed your minds that MS is marketing this game as an casual title for the 360 to add diversity to its line-up?.
It's funny Sony fanboys say PS has all the diversity and appeals to many people but when the xbox does it; it won't work and can't bring gamers that like different stuff. lol
Will everyone quit arguing? Every post in here turns into name calling, [email protected][email protected]
Xeoset, i have no idea why you have so many bubbles using the word [email protected]
Sorry if offended.
It's not like the word has any meaning anymore, I coin it as only an insult but an insult with no meaning.
It's like B'stard has lost it's meaning. It used to be offensive because you were born out of wedlock, but now that's the norm. That's hat the word is to me aswell.
If words had no meaning then computers wouldn't need keyboards & this post would be nothing more than an unitelligible string of funny looking characters, but they do mean something as does their context.
PS3 owners need to invest more energy in letting Sony know that everything isn't OK rather than continuing to try to convince themselves that everything is OK.
Maybe the cancellation of this title doesn't mean anything to you, but if Sony doesn't turn sales of the PS3 around soon it will turn out to be the tip of the iceberg & you might actually care about the cancellations announced tomorrow or next week.
PS3's install base is anemic at best & to make matters worse no one really knows how many gamers own the box vs. how many videophiles which makes for a difficult sale when you're talking about a $20 million development budget.
Sony entered the console war with a Blu-ray player & you bought a Blu-ray player that may be a game console someday, but if you want the PS3 to succeed you need to direct your anger toward those resposible for doing everything in their power to make the PS3 fail... Sony management.
BTW, anyone remember Nuon? It was a DVD player that could have been a game console someday, but never was. I bought one for Tempest 3K.
I don't take sides in the fanboy wars, but this is a sad showing by the Sony brigade.
When Katamari was exclusive to Sony we all hear time and again how Katamari was an amazing, quirky game.
In fact I'm sure I remember PS3 fans stating it'd be an awesome game for the SIXAXIS motion controls, and lauding it over the 360 owners!!
Now it's shifted to XBox and all of a sudden it's no loss to the PS3, a rubbish game worth 6/10 at best...
One of the great things about the PS2 was the depth and breadth of its game line up (especially those quirky games like Katamari), and that attributed massively to its success. The same can not be said for the PS3.
I don't think Namco is ignoring that. This game will be exclusive to the 360, but I feel that it's only because they are working on another version that will use the tilt function on the sixaxis. Kinda like what team Ninja is doing with Sigma. They want to rope in new fans with something that is very similar to past offerings while concentrating on evolving the series further on the PS platform. At least I hope. I LOVED this game for my PS2, and now I get to love it on my 360.
That is my understanding....
Beautiful Katamari is so close in content to previous PS versions that they've skipped a PS3 version this time and are working on a new Katamari (whether that one is PS3 only or multi plat I don't recall reading).
I have to admit enjoying the previous 2 Katamari games, but I saw nothing new in this one other than the control system.
For the 360 this is good news, they don't have a single game like it out on the system, but I do have to wonder if the 360's fanbase will purchase this game in droves?
I think this really shows Namco's lack of vision. PS fanatics are the ones who made Katamari a cult hit and now they're not going to release on PS? Does your average PS fan really like Katamari enough to buy a 360 or a Wii? They are clearly trying to expand the audience (or should I say, the bottom line), but they're doing it by cutting off their fan-base at the knees? I probably would have gotten this game on PSN, but I won't get for Live - I just won't bother at all now.
I don't want to play AC on my 360 either. Stupid Namco.
well as for Sony theri not bothered because they have their own...something called Little Big Planet, so my guess is Sony didn't really care for this as much as they would've care for it if it weren't for Little Big Planet and Sony wants something new not the same old play with Katamari.
good for 360 owners since they don't have that type of game around
i know its not good too loose games but i dont think anyone will by this game besides 9 years olds i mean anyone that comes to this website aint gone buy this game unless they have kids.
It ain't always about polygons bro.
ESTE ES EPERANDO
i played the previous it was ermm ok but not a game that u would rush out to buy or are in ur wish list lol so i wont expect this 1 to be the same
Kinda unfair, considering that Katamari started life on PS2.
