PSU writes, "During SEGA's recent Marvel superhero showcase event in New York City, Liquid Entertainment's Andrew Rubino confirmed to PSU that PlayStation 3 was the lead development platform for Thor: God of Thunder."
So what theyre saying is the game is still going to suck...
This game looks like crap... Yo Sega.. Know a game called God of War? There's a dude there called Kratos that might kick your Thor's ass.
Why do they even bother releasing games like these? They don't even start to sell until they're in the bargain bin.
So what every game should just be canned if it isn't going to sell well?
Sega should put this money towards funding Shenmue 3.
They could sell it for half price or less right off the bat
Agreed, there are always hidden gems. A lot of people thought Batman AA would recieve the same treatment. Personally I don't expect this game to blow me away( If I even bother to play it...which I likely won't)), but at least with PS3 as lead platform both PS3 and 360 versions should perform nearly identical.
Sega should make a PS3 collection of VC2 & 3 with the money if not shenmue 3.
No, not at all, but stuff like this just has fail written all over it right from the start. Just nothing to make it stand out in the crowd. Also, if you can't beat what you are imitating, why bother? On topic, I'll welcome more multiplats where the PS3 is the lead platform, although to be honest, most of my cash is already spent on the exclusives. Next up, Socom 4.
Incidentally, same dev that did Rise of the Argonauts. Things now looks even bleaker.
NYC sadly this garbage will likely sell better than Shenmue would. Shenmue was cancelled due to abysmal sales figures, remember? ...
"but at least with PS3 as lead platform both PS3 and 360 versions should perform nearly identical." like....almost every time, even with xbox leadplatform (with ps3 lead platform, we should expect a better version every time)
good thats the way its suppose to be
This is a good thing, it's always proved to produce the best results.
In the end both will look like crap.
who cares.. the game is shit....
thats the red flag right there seriously way to get exposure this is becoming the norm now
This is one game that it really doesn't matter which platform is the lead. Its a movie-based game that was thrown together in no time. Need I say more?
Actually, it had a two-year development cycle.
...when you've proven time and time again that you can't do anything, quality-wise, with EITHER platform/hardware, does it really matter? This statement = "We started sucking on the PS3 first" :o
Off topic - I really wish all that all multiplatform developers would use the PS3 as the lead platform, not because of fanboyism either. Games that go from 360 -> PS3 have some pretty noticeable differences where as the other way around doesn't really have many obvious problems. On topic - I'll possibly check the game out. Most movie-games tend to be terrible but I thought X-men Origins was pretty good, maybe this will be the same.
All non Thor fanatics just yawned and clicked another link.
not surprised when they have games like god of war
