Sony have confirmed today that Haze is now a PS3 timed exclusive. Haze, the new AAA shooter from Ubisoft and Free Radical, puts players in the boots of a new recruit in the privately run Mantel army.
direct quote from the press event
Tretton now touts the fact that Ubisoft's Haze will be exclusive this holiday season to the PS3.
Its timed like before
Did'nt sony tell me this game was only possible on the PS3? We hate when our games go to the xbox because for some reason they always look better and run faster on that inferior machine.
I glad it's still coming out for the 360. I thought it was going to be an exclusive to the PS3.
The graphics look great too, so everyone's a winner.
I hear a lot of talk about this game, "Is it exclusive? Is it a timed exclusive"...
Here's a better question...
Is tha game any good?
TIMED EXCLUSIVE! Doesnt the PS3 have its own exclusives that it can actually keep?
remember mgs4 enough said
So 360 will get it later, but that's still better than not getting it at all. I can wait.
Yet another reason why I'll stay broke over the next year or so.
but, then again, so did Assasins Creed, and look how that is turning out. UbiSoft, the NEW EA.
MoonDust: Take a look at the review of the assasins creed demo. It was flat out horrible.
The demo at the Microsoft press conference was kinda weak.
In what way?
when the guy got past the guards, and did the stealth kill from behind..the guys body just stayed therer in the air, (will be fixed hopefully by shipping) but u could hear the nervous laugh of hte girl presenter lol...
i thought he said unreal was time exclusive for the ps3 this year..and haze is complelty ps3 exclusive..
Ps3 gets mod exclusivity, i think.
It was all about the mods
I'm way more psyched for uncharted, but haze could give the ps3 another little bump during the holiday season. This fall/winter is shaping up to be one of the best stretches ever for gamers, regaurdless of the console.
According to Mr. Key...VP Marketing for Ubisoft:
Key: Haze will only be found on PS3 this holiday season, and will remain exclusive through the first quarter of the calendar year.
Then it goes multi.
A great game will be a great game 6 months later. Plus sometimes the later verion gets more stuff - extra maps, more tweaking etc.
For example, the PS3 is getting free content for R6:Vegas that I paid for on LIVE(though it became free last week or so on LIVE)
And its not like both systems don't have tons of games to play anyway...
sorry but this is definitely not a AAA title, one type of enemy? come on...
Edit: why 3 disagrees?? do people nowadays have fun killing the one same enemy over and over again? and i am more of a sony fan btw...
The story has it a little backwards. Haze is completely exclusive from what they said. UT3 is the timed exclusive.
EDIT: I just read another article done with an the developer posted today, and it says timed exclusive, so I don't know. Just say it already.
I thought the video was actually VERY bad... I expected more.
With so many shooters coming to the xbox 360 this fall (COD 4, Halo 3, Splinter Cell, BioShock and Mass Effect) it makes sense to put off some of the shooter games until next year so there is less competition, which would result in better sales for the titles.
sorry xbots time for you to defect.
Now this guy or girl is brain dead lol makes fanboys look really stupid, Its a timed exclusive read what the artical said again or cant you read(properly not).
Timed isn't that bad. Its good for PS3 gamers as they already have such a lack of decent games, compared to Xbox 360's line-up from Augustus - December. We won't even have time to play Haze with all the other amazing games!
honestly with so many games for 360 and PS3, I dont care about Haze. I will probably get the cheaper PS3 version when PC and 360 version hits the shelves next or skip it altogether
Is this a bad thing for xbox 360 owners? How many FPS are xbox 360 gamers will get from now and the end of the year... why put Haze head to head against Halo3 and the other AAA FPS? Now the PS3 can get it... and let them have fun with it. I can't possibly buy all these games and play them all at the sametime... So, Sony fans have fun with Haze since you will not be getting Killer Zone for a while. Besides Halo 3 or not... COD4 will keep me busy.
I think everything was f!cking amazing, the Wii Fit workout pad and everything, I LOVE GAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
I'm not being a fanboy or anything. Just the simply facts, it appears that BOTH Haze and Unreal 3 will be PS3 timed exlusives. Neither was said to be exclusive permently. Third Party exclusives are harder and harder to find. Everyone wants to cash in on the userbase of other platforms also.
Too many shooters. I'd like to see more adventure and platforming.
stop posting it like its new news.
And its on PS3 first! - Can't wait!
