Black Trolls Studios was making a PS3 exclusive FPS? Never heard that

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2220d ago

Same here. Would be nice to see what the heck it looks like though. Exclusive or not.

Moving on.

MaxXAttaxX2220d ago

There was a black trolling studio?

"Last year, the internet was on fire with the news that publisher EA and mystery developer Black Troll Studios were working on an exclusive shooter for the PS3."

I've been alive since last year. Did I miss the internet being on fire? I knew nothing of this game.

Soldierone2220d ago

Plus it's an exclusive FPS. Other than being from EA, there are already a lot of exclusive FPS titles for PS3. I'd rather see some other genre game be exclusive, but since its FPS it might be better for it to be multi-platform.

internet was on fire lol!

the only thing on fire on the internet last year was the PSN outage and nothing else came close!

did u not know BLACK TROLLING STUDIO is BLACKBOX STUDIO sister lol

DeadlyFire2219d ago

WTH are you guys thinking? EA never makes exclusive games.

expect The Old Republic to come to WiiU/PS4/XB3 at some point. Oh wait that one is already rumored WiiU MMO by Lucasarts for E3. Oh wow.

As far as this game goes though it could be any FPS EA has made in its past. Well its not Battlefield, its not Medal of Honor. So is it BLACK 2? Naming the studio Black Trolling studio would be a funny joke/shot at Stuart Black the originator behind BLACK. Although it could be ARMY of Two/Four.

E3 will be the only place to find the answer.

sikbeta2219d ago

Black Troll Studio? never heard of this and I'm sure EA is not one of those Pubs that will deprive themeselves to get more money from all platforms they could :P

Gamer19822219d ago

First I heard of this too this game I mean. As for exclusive this is EA since when do they do exclusives anymore?

SilentNegotiator2219d ago

An exclusive FPS from EA? Not in a million years.

Well whatever. It's hard to lament the loss of an exclusive I didn't know existed and knew nothing about.

Then again, lamenting an exclusive is pointless unless the development of said game is negatively impacted by the porting process.

And hell, I've never even heard of Black Troll Studios before now.

TekoIie2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

Depends on when we see it tbh. If it goes on to be the next COD4 then it would be a major loss for sony and would have really put microsoft at a disadvantage in the shooter market. But if it turned out to be a boring generic FPS then no one will really care...

BlackPrince 422220d ago

@ Pekolie

You're right it would be a major loss for Sony, but not for me. I already own my console and I'm more than satisfied with the output I've seen from Sony in terms of exclusives and the content of multiplat releases.

Who ultimately 'wins' the console wars doesn't affect your or me in the slightest as long as good games continue to be made available.

And even if I were a fanboy, who cared about which faceless, greedy corporation wanted my money, it'd still be pointless because everything will reset in a couple of years when we get new consoles.

glennco2220d ago

another exclusive FPS is no loss for anyone. it will not be a must buy, it is an FPS. it will be generic as they come and nothing new

basilezz30302220d ago

who is black trolling studio ??
are they "trolling" us ???

torchic2220d ago

lol I think we can all guess what their logo probably looks like........

basilezz30302220d ago

here is the logo

happy to help

metsgaming2220d ago

if a game was exclusive but turns multiplat yet no one knew about it in the first place, was it ever an exclusive? lol

Emilio_Estevez2220d ago

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Christopher2220d ago

Pretty much what Abash said. Looks like someone took some artistic licensing in presenting this bit of news.

SuperBeast8112220d ago

I never heard of the game or the studio.and if its from EA it wouldn't be exclusive for long

THESONYPS32219d ago

haha, Black Trolls Studios were nice nough to let some members of sony (including me) see it in development.

Prince_Dim-Lu2219d ago

Looks like they wanted to MAKE money by going multi plat, instead of LOSING money by keeping only on PS3.

Games sell much better on the 360 when they're multi plat majority of the time.

Ya, I expect the SDF on this site to give me the disagrees left and right... but it's true this generation. Sorry, it's been going on for almost 7 years, and that's just the way it is this gen.

turgore2219d ago

did EA ever make a PS3 or 360 exclusive ?

Third-party exclusives are like the Dodo bird. Stupid.

MariaHelFutura2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

Keep your anti-dodo bird slurs to yourself....

There is no place for that on N4G.

Dread2220d ago


that was too funny dude

360GamerFG2220d ago

Lol!! That actually made me laugh.

cervantes2402220d ago

I would just like to learn more about the game and the studio working on it.

dbjj120882220d ago

Not surprised... not a lot of money in exclusive titles anymore.

creatchee2220d ago

Halo, Gran Turismo, Uncharted, and Gears of War disagree.

D3stinySm4sher2220d ago

Exclusives are hard to come by these days.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2220d ago

Depends on what platform you play on.

Forza_is_King2220d ago

Last time I checked, both Sony and MS released a lot of exclusives last year oh but let me guess...kinect games don't count right?

MariaHelFutura2220d ago

If you're 7 or under Kinect games completely count.

Outside_ofthe_Box2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

***"kinect games don't count right?"***

Depends on the kinect game.

Imagine Wii fans bragging about how they have "Wii fit" and "Wii Fit: Plus" as exclusive games...

BlackPrince 422220d ago

@ Forza

Kinect games don't count quite the same as fully boxed 60 dollar AAA releases.

Technically speaking both Kinect Star Wars and Uncharted 3 are exclusives. But the difference in the effort each game necessitated for their creation is vast. You have to compare like to like.

Gears to Uncharted

Crappy Kinect game to crappy Move game.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2220d ago

For the record, Forza I didn't say MS or Sony. I said platform. There are lots of platforms.

"Exclusives are hard to come by these days. "

not by what i am seeing.

sony is announcing an exclusive game every other week.

Patriots_Pride2219d ago

Every other week you say - please name all the exclusives that have been announced this year?

cemelc2219d ago (Edited 2219d ago )

New god of war
New game today @ gt(hope its sony smash).
And there was an article yesterday about a game called Hard Cash or something.

Did you miss the memo?

basilezz30302220d ago

*Exclusives are hard to come by these days*

i wonder what sony have been doing since 2008 then

tigertron2219d ago

Think he means third party exclusives, because we've got a ton of first party PS3 exclusives.

Btw, EA aren't known for exclusives so I'm not surprised they took the multiplatform route. After all, they are a multiplatform publisher.
