Fahrenheit 2? as much as id like that game i doubt its ever gonna happen

Road Rash HD is another game id REALLY like, itll happen 1-day

The list seemed too much, they should of added "Final Fantasy 7 (remake)" it was like a list of things that where 2 unbelievable 2 happen

I hope i wrong of course, either way - i win

Hmm imagine if that was real though... 360 fanboys would go freaking nuts if Sony finally paid for an exclusive and it was Mass Effect 3... I would hate it to happen to the fans of the game who played through on 360 but the fanboys get what they deserve. As for the article the reason they give at number 2 David Jaffe confirming it was fake... Like he would confirm it was real?

What you mean finally? You think they haven't already? Agent? I'm sure there are other titles as well. So dunno what you mean by 'finally'

AnttiApina3005d ago

Of course it is a fake. Even I could do a list like that with Excel, print it and take a picture out of it.

heroicjanitor3005d ago

Wasn't Agent made exclusive in return for letting la noire go multiplatform? I'm pretty sure that was the case but I'm sure they paid for something, just can't think of it right now

Smkt3005d ago

could be real.. only Mass Effect 3 on Sony seems weird.. but EA might be doing that to get the hype going like MS did for FF13 going multi..

also.. Ninja Solid.. itagaki's new game perhaps o_O?

darkmurder3005d ago

Yeah Call of Duty MMO is fake, next one is Call of Duty: Modern Cashgrab

"if Sony finally paid for an exclusive and it was Mass Effect 3"

Though I would love ME trilogy to come on PS3, making ME3 exclusive, even if Sony could afford it, would be cruel and unfair on the ME fans on 360 who have played 1 and 2 and cant afford to buy another console

And bottomline is, Sony cant aford it. Each ME game probably costs 40-50 million to develop (after all the scale is similar to FF or MGS, which cost even more).

I am just hopeful that the massive costs EA incurs on this franchise would force them to bite the bullet and make ME multiplatform

Christopher3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

L.A. Noire was originally made exclusive to the PS3 so that GTA4 could go to the 360. Then they switched it to The Agent with L.A. Noire going multiplatform. Sony did invest $20-25 million in RockStar for an exclusive title, which IIRC was from RockStar approaching Sony with the idea and not the other way around.

Either way, everyone pays in one way or another for every exclusive title.

Regardless, ME3 being listed under Sony doesn't mean exclusivity, only means they'd have a focus on it coming to the PS3 in addition to 360 and PC.

If you have half a brain, you should have already known by the listings.

Why is it fake? Because it's on Spong.

It was fake from the first glance. Just looked like it was fluffed to make the PS3 look like a champ. Microsoft will have two E3 conferences. I doubt their list would be so small. They would throw a bone in the real list from the 360 lineup and the Natal lineup even if they do keep everything secret until it's time.

PirateThom3005d ago

Microsoft aren't having two press conferences, this is what happens when bloggers report news.

Microsoft are having one press conference and a Natal Experience, basically inviting people for a "hands on".

Greenberg: Just 1 press conference on Monday morning, Sunday night is a “Project Natal” experience, not a press conference.

Hallmark Moment3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

You can try and spin all you want. And yes the Natal press event will be more show and less stats, I say this because its seems like this difference where you are trying to spin it.

iFLOWLIKEWATER3005d ago (Edited 3005d ago )

here is a glaring spot(ME3) on Sony's list that is equivalent to looking at the sun. But obviously, a little more humorous...

Edit: Article points this out. Damn, iFlow, read the article first, duh!!!!
