The Xbox 360 and PC versions are still on schedule to arrive before the end of the publisher's fiscal year in March 2008. However, the PS3 game will follow later on a date yet to be announced.
Do you not have anything better to do?
Wow I got agreed and disagreed in like 30 secs. Awesome! I hadn't even finished editing this thing yet.
oh now PS3 OWNERS WILL say i do not have to wait, i will play it in my super kick ass computer-which most of them do not have-
@blow:it is not 360 owners cannot offerd it but the fact that they have life
play the best console (360) with best games than go back to LIFE(i do not think you know what that is)
Sorry but I own a powerful PC, sorry to hear all those xbox fanboys cry and say they cant afford machinery like ps3 or pc.
Want to hear something funny, and this is from a friend who is a xbox fanboy. He developed some kindov cardinal rule of thumb, he will not buy a game beyond a week since its launch date because he wants to emphasize a point that multiplatform games come out before a ps3.... meaning if he can't afford and it is a superb game he will still not buy it. That is pretty much childish but hey he is missing alot of games.
What matters is if a company pumps out exclusive titles with a constant flow , multiplatform games are side dishes.
for the ps3 fanatics
anyways they've got tons of movies to rerun until 2009
are the kinds of things that happen when you focus too much on HD media and not gaming.
The 360 is streamlined just for gaming so getting code up and running is a minimal time. Bc a 360 dev kit is very similar to PC architecture. Which all games are made on first
The PS3 architecture is drasticly different which will usually lead to it getting a sloppy "port" with subpar framerates...etc...Not to mention various delays which cost developers extra money.
As it is plain to see the 360 is usually still the lead on multiplatform games.
PS2 has even more difficult architecture, takes one cycle to learn. 360 won't always be the lead platform, it's a developer's choice. It really depends on what they want to achieve, porting games backward onto the 360 is easier if you make the PS3 the lead platform, i will see more developers doing that instead. All these delays are bc things were develope on the 360 first, bc they had the dev kit a year before they did for the PS3
so pissed off, WHY DO THESE PS3 games get delayed!!!! u kno what i think? that this developer sux and they dont know what they're doing... so, im prob not gonna get the game.
Yeah, that must be it. All developers are lazy and su(k...Wake up!
Ever thought devs want to add HOME features to PS3 games, so cos HOME SDK's have just been released to devs, games are running behind in development.
So GRAW 2 has Home functions?
Has to be one of the worst films i've ever seen.
Omg remember Tiara Reid ''Its abkani!!'' like in every scene. The movie had nothing to do with the games.
true. the movie was bad. but this franchise created the survival horror genre back in the days
I just hope it isn't being delayed for PlayStation 3 because they want to throw in the movie on Blu-Ray!
I doubt it, I wasn't gonna buy it anyway. If it's good I'll buy it for 360.
Seriously do you guys get you rocks off a game getting delayed for ps3? I mean seriously how sad are you guys? You know why dont u talk about that stellar 360 line up for next year? oh thats right there aint much huh? Alan Wake, Halo Wars and Fable 2( new ips much like sony this year unproven franchises) oh noessss!!! Yea next year you mofos will be quiet as a mouse when its sony's turn to unleash its halo 3 calibur games and not just one but multiple. MGS4, MGS4O, TEKKEN 6, GT5, Killzone 2,FFXIII,FFXIII versus,Socom etc all these are big games too(proven like halo) so what do you gotta say now get it all out cause anybody with a head worth a pile-o-beans knows sony got 08 sewed up
*EDIT to the guy below me, you act as if only the ps3 has games that get delayed? where is mass effect and GTA IV? Also name me some major 360 games for next year that are as big as halo 3? thats right u got nothin now shut the hell up. I know you wont argue with me tho so why am i wasting my breath?
*EDIT AGAIN to the guy below me u still didn't name any 360 games that are as big as any of those franchises and guess what my friend halo is not the only big game duh!!!? Its funny how you danced around my question though all talk no bite.Are FFXIII,GT5 and MGS4 not just as big as halo? now be honest yea thought so?
I was just wondering with your comment that the PS3 has 2008 sewed up, you do realise that MGS4 will whore itself out 360 with some sort of substance version in 2008, also Killzone 2 is not exactly a follow up classic game. And what with the fact that they actually can’t seem to get any games released on schedule (Blue Ray). If think it’s probably more realistic to say they will have 2010 sewed up, that’s if they have any exclusive games left by then.
In reply to the above comment, I agree games do get delayed on the 360 and whilst their won’t be a game bigger than Halo 3 next year, and by that I mean on any system. I’m sure you’re reply with a list of games you consider to be bigger, and then you will make what you consider a hilarious comment about how foolish I am and how I don’t know anything. But at the end of the day I’m sure you and every other PS3 fanboy deep down have to admit that things aren’t looking great are they.
EDIT: i nearly forgot "Shut the Hell up"
no surprise here POS3 games are always delayed
lair, heavenly sword are the biggest flops of the year
sony should get out of the console war as fast as it can before they go bankcrupt and take all you idiots who bought thepos3 with them.
we have a mart junior aww... how cute now i know how all these fanboyz are so stupid they have parents that are idiots that explains alot lol how sad is ur life? Your a fanboy of a fanboy god your life is pathetic? lol
Why does this Douche still have so many bubbles... Man I just don't get it... it amazes me every time I come in her has more than four??
LOL nice one,i bought a ps3 at the begining of the year hoping to get some aaa games for it ,but alas theres none what a surprise.LAIR and HEAVENLY SWORD both have had under par reviews,its pathetic really nearly 1 year after its launch and theres nothing but crappy ports,all my ps3 does is sitt under my tv garthering dust and thats no joke i kid you not,thank god for my 360 which gets 100% of my playing time and its a launch console,never had any bother from it,sweet..The 360 seems to be going from strength to strength with amazing games(priceless).........
To the posters above this isnt Mart....its Mart"2".....look at the N4G join date.
This game is being produced by a new team (at EDEN, same of Test Drive Unlimited ..which is quite a great game.) and it's VERY technologicaly intensive ..
That is prolly why they are having trouble with PS3.. since they developed their own technologies they have to re-build them to work on PS3 (instead of just porting the code to a "working" engine in both platforms.) ..
Take a look at this preview, incredibly promissing.
Oh, forgot to say, the story is being writen by Lorenzo Carcaterra (Sleepers 1995) .. it's going to be very "new-york street" styled.
Alone in the Dark was originally announced for 360 and PC back in 2005, with the PS3 version confirmed a year later.
I think that pretty much sums it up, it was to be expected they were just trying to be optimistic they could get them all out on the same time, but had a year in advance on 2 out of the 3 platforms.
Lets just hope it looks identical to the 360 version.
that this game was delayed across the board so no big deal. I seriously doubt that the PS3 version is that far behind.
as if they know the game will be released in march for sure.
this is pure flamebait as march is 6 months away.
I think sony should talk to each and every dev who comes out and say, the PS3 version will be delayed by a month or so. They need to sit down with these people and see why they cant make any 3rd party PS3 game out on time, im getting sick and tired of this.
It's unwise to own only a Playstation 3 if your interested in playing new and upcoming next generation games. Most real gamers will own all systems. But to those that insist on own only a Playstation 3, congratulations on wasting your money on a second rate system that will always get Xbox 360 hand me downs. That's what you get for being a brand loyalist. You have a long painful trip ahead of you filled with this kind of news.
It's been bad news after bad news since the PS3 price was announced. There has literally been no good news, since. There most hyped games have either failed, or barely passed muster. Now, a game that isn't coming out for 6 months is announced as "delayed" to some undisclosed time in the future. I guess it's a timed exclusive for 360/PC.
Seriously, we all know that some 60 to 80 percent of all multiplatform games are going to have a delayed ps3 version.
X360 fans stop talking about PlayStation3 delays and Sony fans stop talking about the Red Rings of Death.
i guess the fact that UT3 is a real timed exclusive, along with haze and warhawk surpassing all expectations doesn't count as good news?
richie007bond, what's your psn id? let me send you a friends request.
who gives a sh!t about this game......the PS3 will have METAL GEAR by MARCH. so again who actually gives a SH!T the hardcore microsoft boys. ill be too busy with METAL GEAR to even notice this games release.
Seriously I bet they pushed it back BECAUSE of Killzone 2. And I know no one is going to buy Alone in the dark when Killzone 2 is release around the same time..
Pfttt lol.. Who cares.
Every System has its highlights. As you can probably tell by my user name, I'm an old Sega Fan. The Playstation 3 reminds me of the Sega Saturn in many ways. It was dubbed as having more potential than the Playstation due to its multiple processors. It was more expensive than the Playstation by $100. It had a ton of exclusive games by Sega. However, third parties had a very difficult time programming for it. Sound familiar?
History repeats it’s self. In the case of the Playstation 3, the bad out weigh the good. In Japan, Sony lost the market to Nintendo. In America and Europe, the Wii and Xbox 360 are in Fantastic positions.
Just look at the sales figures and calculate yourself what it's going to take for the Playstation 3 to catch up to today’s Wii and Xbox 360 figures. It’s not good.
I tend to believe this site a lot more than VG charts.
Get delayed for the Ps3. Sony fanboys are used to being treated as second class citizens by game developers.
But at least they get Unreal and Haze first. I just have a very strong feeling that when both those games release for the xbox 360 a few months later....they will both be better on the 360. But we will see won't we. Should be interesting. And we all know that Unreal and haze will be much much better on a high end PC. I'm curious to see how those two games run on the Cell. Will they be 30 fps? We'll know this November. I just got my copy of Stranglehold today. Its fantastic....I love it. Too bad the Ps3 version got delayed....but I guess thats to be expected. WOW
Its ok elitegamer, the trade-off is we get a movie along with the game. Enjoy the game, i played the demo and it's fun, the only reason i'm buying it and not renting it is because of the movie.
you bought a $60 movie?
Thats cool...A movie?
I buy games because I want to play...well....Games...LOL...
Thats neat. Lets see when they do the head to heads which game runs,looks, and plays better. I have a feeling based on just about every multiplatform game before it....that the 360 version will get better review scores. But at least you wait for a lesser game and a bonus movie. WOW....Interesting indeed.
I wish the 360 version included the movie on HD DVD. I had to go to Blockbuster to rent it so I could know what was going on. I remember when Shenmue 2 hit the Xbox they included a movie of the first game and even though I played the first one on Dreamcast (great console) I thought it was a good idea to include it/
the next-gen version was announced in 2005 for Xbox 360 - and the PS3 version a year later in 2006. That I can understand, but 2 years for the Xbox version? Better be damn good!
Not sur eif you realise it or not, but most games have a 2 - 5 year production life, starting from conceptual to release day. Many studios have multiple games in production by more than one studio, and thus it "seems" shorter than it might be. Some followingiterations of a series can be well into production before the former is even released. It's just how things are done to reduce lead time between releases.
Infinity Ward were working on COD4 straight after they finished COD2, which has given them several years to work on thegame to date, so that it (COD4) could be out no longer than 12 - 18 months after COD3 was released by Treache. Same goes for Ubisoft, EA etc etc. Treache are currently working on COD5 . . . but that's another story all together.
Alone In The Dark: Near Death Investigation has been in the works for several years now, and aimed firstly at both the PC and 360, then followed by the PS3. Not because they (Dev) are stupid, or can't do it, as some would suggest, but simply because it's harder for them with the PS3 - currently, and their production time was already underway with the other two major platforms well before their decsion to do the PS3 version - as well.
it might run better on 360, it might not. we'll wait and see, as far as the movie. if i'm going to spend $69.99 why wouldnt i want a copy of hardboiled? seems like a no brainer to me.
