PS3 Rumored to Get ManHunt 3 Exclusive for Playstation Move

GFB writes: "There have been murmurs about ManHunt 3 since the highly controversial release of ManHunt 2 for the Wii and PS2. Now it appears the most recent rumor out of Rockstar's parent company TakeTwo is that we can expect an announcement this summer. From what we're being told, the game will be PS3 exclusive and utilize the Playstation 3's upcoming Move add-on. It definitely makes sense since the PS3 would be a perfect fit for the ManHunt sequel. And with the rumored plan to use the Move hardware, the latest version could give PS3 gamer's the functionality that was available in the Wii version of ManHunt 2."

Cool if true. I've been waiting for a new Manhunt game. As for being exclusive to PS3 and Move, guess we'll just have to wait and see. Honestly, I can't see that happening though.

GunShotEddy3157d ago

I hope it's exclusive because games built fromt he ground up for one console are always better. Hate ports either way.

Jamegohanssj53157d ago

If it's going to be censored, then f*ck it.


Megaton3157d ago

I still haven't even finished Manhunt 2. It was cool, really gory, but the censor filter pissed me off. Don't want another one if they have to censor it.

MurderMyDoll3157d ago

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE TRUE! Easiley in top five games last gen can't wait for another installment PS3 exclusive even better!

Silly gameAr3157d ago

I still have Manhunt and Manhunt 2 for the PS2. Yeah, the filter in 2 was a bummer, but it didn't stop me from enjoying the game. Even with the filter, the kills were pretty brutal.

I doubt it would be much of an issue this time around though. If GOW 3 can get away with the brutality of Kratos' finishers, I don't see why Manhunt would be censored this time around.

Kleptic3157d ago

I never played the sequel....but the first half of manhunt 1 was one of my favorite single player games of last generation...Just got a little lame imo when it turned into an average third person shooter towards the second half...

this would be completely awesome if true though...

starvinbull3157d ago

Good god a new Manhunt game game is awesome news.

Hope it's as good as the original which had more tension than any game, book or film I have ever come across.

mastiffchild3157d ago

Dunno about this but with Sony having deals in place for Agent plus two(possibly more Agent games if successful or other R* IPs)I guess we'll keep seeing R*/Sony rumours until things get announced, no?

I loved 80% of the first game but had lost interest in the sequel by the time the BBFC had messed about in court over it! I'm told it was pretty good on the Wii, though, and could have been even better without the silly censorship moves they took with that bloody filter! Certainly it's an IP that could be really cranked up a notch for PS3 AND make a real showcase for Move. Could make sense.
As I say, however, expect a few more R* rumours before we get anything cleared up on this front.

thereapersson3157d ago

And this is censored like what they did with Manhunt 2, then I'm not even remotely interested.

The first Manhunt, while slightly flawed, was one of my all-time favorite games. Manhunt 2 comes along, and I learn that it's censored beyond the original design team's vision. I really hope this isn't the case.

Whatever happened to free speech? It's really a subjective topic, isn't it?

HolyOrangeCows3157d ago

I wouldn't be TOO shocked, but I've never listened to and I'm not starting today.

Christopher3157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

Meh. Not a strong exclusive, IMHO. That's like 360 fanboys bragging about having Too Human as an exclusive, IMHO.

MrMacabre3157d ago

"air strangling" lmao!

This would make an excellent addition to Sonys ever expanding list of mature games, solidifying its reputation as the console of choice for the more seasoned gamer. Violence is certainly not sophisticated but 9 times out of 10 the M/cert 18 rated game is just a whole lot more fun IMO.

Noctis Aftermath3157d ago

It's doubtful that this is the big exclusive that the other rumor was refering to, seeing how manhunt is not on the same level as GTA San Andreas.

That said, this could be an entirely different PS3 exclusive, in the rumormill anything goes.

sikbeta3157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

Great IF true, but is not a "Big" Game IMO

andron3157d ago

The Wii Manhunt 2 version was good I heard, so they have the know how to make a real strangling

vhero3157d ago

Could this really be the other unannounced Rockstar exclusive game?

raztad3157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

I just cant imagine how gruesome would be the goreish MANHUNT on my PS3. Played Manhunt 1 on PS2 and Manhunt 2 on the PSP (uncensored). Loved them both. Love me some MANHUNT 3 on the PS3, exclusive or not. If true MANHUNT 3 is PS MOVe enabled, I would buy a Move just for it.

There is no way this would ever get released. Especially after the trouble with number 2. It'd sell loads of Move's if it did, but I seriously doubt it will do.

XRider3157d ago

I didn't like the first one and never played the 2nd, didn't like the whole cutting off peoples heads stuff.

starvinbull3157d ago

You don't have to cut peoples heads off, not even once.

Aphe3157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

Well you don't have to, but you can. With the wire, and then you can pick the head up and throw it to distract. That was one of the highlights of the game for me lol.

-MD-3157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

I've been asking for Manhunt 3 for a long long time.

mxrider23157d ago (Edited 3157d ago )

youve been asking for 3 men to hunt you so they can put you out of your feigbox misery

Basil-Rathboner3157d ago

Great news.

However i feel for Jack Tretton, that at this years E3 another Sony surprise (if true) may have been spilled.

Remember Jack's jocular jape last year.
