Atari to hold off on PlayStation 3 titles until 2007

Speaking in an exclusive interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Atari CEO Bruno Bonnell has confirmed that the publisher has no plans to release any PS3 games before 2007.

Bonnell said Atari intends to support all three next-gen consoles "fairly equally", adding, "It's just that we're lacking information about the PS3 at this stage, because we have basically a rough release date and a high retail price point.

"As far as the Wii and the Xbox 360 go, we'll be there for this season; for PS3, we'll probably have to wait a little later in the year before we release some new titles." And, according to Bonnell, that means no Atari titles on PS3 until 2007. (Industry, PS3)

most of the top games arent coming out till 2007 anyway

And whats the best game that atari has? Driver? And i thought Driver got bought out by ubisoft anyway. Who cares about atari?

exactly what i was just thinking. like you stated, most games aren't going to make it till '07. hell! the PS3 isn't releasing till late '06 anyway. i think the games that are being released this year is enough to cover for 2 more months until next year.

they'll start developing in 2007
but if they want to make a decent first game then they wouldn't release it until the 3rd quarter. Not unless you people love rushed development so you can have glitchy-ass games to have epileptic fits to.

nothin new
Atari was smart, this was planned anyways. because alone in the dark 5 is scheduled to released mid 07. the trailers from E306 pointed it out and both ps3 and xbox360 logos were shown. so this aint bad at all and was never a deviation from there plan. 2007 is year the console war truely begins. because a slew of triple A titles grace both ps3 and xbox360. especaily PS3. DMC4 RE5, UT07, Heavenly sword, Tekken 6, GTA4, GT5, FF13, AC, and Warhawk, MGS4, heavy rain. and naughtydogs ps3 title. man oh man!

you won't have to wait for all of those
some of those are launch titles for 2006

Both posts above are true. I voted lame, but probably shouldn't have voted at all because I don't really care about Atari, I can't think of any of their games that I'm excited for, other than Alone in the Dark 5, and as an above poster mentioned, that's already scheduled for mid 2007 so it doesn't really matter.
