HQ has confirmed with Shacknews that the PlayStation 3 version of Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon has indeed been cancelled, citing "development issues." Now an Xbox 360 exclusive, Furon ships to North American retailers on December 1.
Its a game i couldnt care for, so the 360 can have it.
How two years later, this still happens. What was Sony thinking when they made the PS3 so hard to work with? Oh yeah... they were thinking that they were gonna blow away the competition because all the PS2 owners were gonna rush out and buy a PS3 like brainless zombies, regardless of price and game library.
OH NOEZ! How will us ps3 owners ever live without this game? (lol)
Never played the first 2. Can't see this being a big deal.
never even heard of it. won't be picking it up on my 360 either. devs need to step up their game though.
OUCH!!!! This is really pointing to a disturbing trend for the PS3, canceled titles for a console in last place ain't going to help the negative press it gets. Definitely not news a suffering PS3 needs right now.
i didnt even know they were making a 3rd O.o
Never played any of the games in the series. Guess this is microsoft's answer to the PS3's line up next year....
I played the first one... it was alright... Somehow I doubt the loss of this game is going to have a huge impact. And @ Agent VX: Well done, you nearly made that one sound sensible... Seriously, do you actually reckon the fact that this game isn't coming to PS3 is going to have an impact in the SLIGHTEST??? If you do you have some strange views on things.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but to be a trend, doesn't it have to occur a few times? The only trend I'm seeing here is half assed 360 games either not being ported to the PS3, or developers porting their half assed game halfheartidly just to make a quick buck off PS3 suckers in addition to 360 suckers. And let's not kid ourselves here, this game is going to be half-assed. So, are developers canning PS3 ports a trend? Or is the trend shoddy ports on the PS3? The answer to both questions is no. Have a look at metacritic reviews and you'll find the majority of multiconsole games are identicle to nearly identical between the 360 and PS3 versions with a handful being better on the 360, a handful better on the PS3. Certainly this wasn't the case back in 2007, but it certainly seems now that developers have more experience these issues are a thing of the past. 360 fanboys would have you believe otherwise, but just do a comparison for yourself.
whatever will i do the ps3 is doomed for sure i think i will just go home and burn it :)
a) Noobs b) too poor to have someone else port it to PS3 or c) paid off by M$ Take your pick
Don't kid yourself, developers are struggling with the PS3 and there have been several titles that were canceled or never even started on the PS3 simply because the developers didn't feel that it was worth it. Red Alert 3, Velvet Assassin, and this game are all examples of that. We have heard this from developers over and over. I can't believe that people want to deny it now. People can try to downplay it all they want but it still doesn't change the fact that developers are not having an easy time with the PS3 and the Ps3 is losing games because of it. Face it, Sony messed up with the design of the PS3. Its architecture is not well suited to actual game development. Obviously it can be done, but it takes a lot more time and effort, and tends to result in inferior multiplatform games and outright cancellations of PS3 multiplatform games.
Ummm... Red Alert 3 is coming to PS3 with 1080p graphics and extra content... Some say it might have Mouse and Keyboard support... Its a shame to lose games, but i can live without Path of Furon...
the ps3 is hard to develop for but i got no time to worry what games are not comming but whaty games are comming and those games i care about :)
UMM seriously it's not like it's gonna sell ne ways on the 360 ,. this series sucks...I played the last one on my PS2..it's so boring.... Im sure Sony is just pissing themselves for losing such a Big Game that could have possibly moved millions of PS3 ... seriously I never even remembered they were making a DAH3...lol
Such immature remarks going on around here. But truthfully any ps3 canceled because of "developer difficulties" isn't exactly positive no matter how you want to spin your distaste for the series. Me? I've never even played the first, so I could care less if it's exclusive to either system.
but some people act like this will be the death nail for the ps3 when it is not, and i like the series i have both of them on my ps2. what exactly is it you want we dont get dah3 so sony should give up and stop selling consoles? :)
Yes, this is a trend. The trend is... the Unreal 3 Engine is a crap piece of software that Epic has horded for their own gain. Or has everyone forgotten the lawsuits?
"How two years later, this still happens. What was Sony thinking when they made the PS3 so hard to work with?" The PS3 isn't hard to develop for. It's different. Smart developers are learning how to do it. Dumb developers who are too lazy will probably go out of business. Just look at processors now. Sony was just ahead of everyone else. Things are changing big in the computer industry. THQ is a mediocre game developer anyway.
"This is really pointing to a disturbing trend for the PS3, canceled titles for a console in last place ain't going to help the negative press it gets." What a stupid comment. It's not like good games are getting cancelled. Most people weren't planning to buy this game. It will be a cheap bargain bin 360 game by spring. Stores will be trying to give it away. It just isn't a real next gen game.
@1.5 You're 100% correct. This is a sign of things to come. Sony delivered an awkward, unproductive and expensive development environment. This would be acceptable **IF** they had made the console sales to drive the developers to their captive market. However, this hasnt happened. Sony's poor sales and very-poor game-attach rates are telling developers: "Your investment on PS3 is at serious risk." This is the sign of things to come. I've been saying this for months. The Sony fans dont seem to realize that the lackluster sales of GAMES on the PS3 is going to drown it. You simply cannot have title after title after title flp in the marketplace, then expect developers to keep burning money up on the PS3. As for the "LOL who cares, Xbox 360 can have it!1!lolzercoaster! PS3 doenst need this game" crowd, we'll they're simply being ridiculous. Secondly, this is the kind of situation that failed consoles in generations past have encountered. To anyone smart enough to recognize the warning signs, this is an absolute pattern that the PS3 is going to fall victim too. 3rd parties dropping their 'cross platform' titles to be exclusive? Yeah, thats pretty darned significant. A console cannot survive in that situation.
You are talking nonsense... Give me five examples that third party games are selling less on the PS3 than 360... Ratio wise... Okay give me three. I think all you have to do is look at games like GTAIV, COD4, MGSIV, Guitar Hero, Madden, FIFA, and several others to see how the PS3 sells third party games. So you are making up false information just being a fanboy. Developers are happy with the PS3 and despite being in last place it has down a better job for the third parties than the Wii... The proof is in the pudding. So before you spout incorrect information you should have some facts.
I agree. It is much more significant than many of these people realize. Developers will go where there is more money to be made and gamers will go where there are more games. The Ps3 is much more difficult to program for and there is no denying that fact. It is well established. John Carmack said that they are working twice as hard just to get equal performance out of the Ps3 as the 360. That isn't a good sign. Some developers have the money and inclination to put out that much time and effort, but many will not. People who blame developers and call them lazy simply have no idea what they are talking about. No matter how you look at it though, it is always better to have a bigger selection of games than it is to have less. @ acedoh Actually, you're wrong. The 360 sells a lot more third party software than either the PS3 or the Wii. Total 3rd party sales since launch: XBOX 360 67,929,999 units Wii 33,394,311 units PS3 19,976,325 units http://www.gamesindustry.bi... The Ps3 has been out two-thirds as long as the 360, but it has sold less than one-third as many third-party games.
Since the 360 had a year start that's not a fair comparison. I also said ratio wise. For those not familiar with math that means you have to take total sales of a game and divide it by consoles. You use John Carmack as one example. Once again let's use facts and not overstate things. The PS3 has been out for over two years. Developers now have the tools to create games that look the same. I believe any developer that has respect for their product would not allow an inferior version to be released. Using this game as an example is also very poor. If it were Fallout 3 being cancelled that would be another story. Instead we are using an inferior game that isn't likely to get 500k in sales.
its not my kind of game anyway. Im not even bothered.
this game went from 5.5/10 to a 9/10 cause its 360 exclusive now LOL...
360 wins! Just kidding, I'm sure this might upset all the Destroy All Human addicts though. Yes all 12 of you. No big deal.
Nice. DAH has a big following and their games have been everywhere. I enjoyed the last one on the Xbox but can't say I will pick this new one up.
*If this were a PS3 exclusive, this is how his comment would read* Hah! DAH is played by losers and their games suck. I enjoyed not playing the last one on the Xbox because I was too cool for it
What are you going on about? I'm not trying to start trouble in the gamer zone so why are you? Good to know I'm in your head though.. kinda empty in here.
Seriously, big following? What the F are you talking about? Since you're one of the biggest supporters of VGCharz on this site (when 360 sells well), here's some numbers for ya: DAH: 760,000 DAH2: 380,000 That includes (and yes I remember) main advertisement for the monster PS2 install base. It's a rental franchise and a mediocrely scored one at that. Games are "everywhere" my ass.
Well he definitely didn't fail in making me laugh. Good one crab lol
can't wai i love all of the destory all humans games
what is this game?
haha i know right. i don't even feel like looking into it after reading the comments about no one even caring.
The PS3 tech really separates the men from the boys, too many retarded devs out there sadly who cannot fathom the PS3's coding.
Yes and it wouldn't have anything to do with time and money to dev on the PS3? You think there is just a wallet then never is empty when it comes to developing games? Or that publishers, investors give you as many years as you need to make a game? The lazy dev excuse is not always a valid one.
Yea I didn't even know this game was coming out but I do think left for dead should come to the ps3, it's really a good game.
it isn't necessarily because they're lazy. maybe they just don't have the skill necessary to code it correctly... &yes, i agree, L4D should come to the PS3 but i wouldn't want it to if it wasn't being done by Valve. we all know how the orange box turned out...
GiantEnemyCrab - Everyone else manages to develop for the PS3. Laziness is not an excuse. Which is why Valve will never get my money.
joydestroy said "i agree, L4D should come to the PS3 but i wouldn't want it to if it wasn't being done by Valve. we all know how the orange box turned out..." Did you play Orange Box on the PS3? It ended up with a Metacritic score of 89 (incidentally, a higher score then L4D is getting). I received this game as a gift and thought I'd have to return it from everything I had read on the forums. Turns out the game was AWESOME! I finished all 3 episodes and Portal and it was fantastic. I haven't the faintest idea what people were complaining about - and if there were any differences, it certainly didn't effect the majority of the professional reviewer's opinions of the game.
Oh my goodness gracious. This was my game of teh year and I'm missing out on it. :/ Time to throw that PS3 out of the window now. ... ... ... /extreme sarcasm You have 1st party studios delivering some amazing games on the PS3. You have Sega delivering a kick ass looking game like Yakuza 3 and a really amazing srpg known as Valkyria Chronicles. You have these developers working on these games and yet people like THQ can't even get their asses into gear and make games for the PS3. This is really, really sad.
Valve didn't do Orange Box for PS3. EA did.
Oh yes all 360 owners should pick this up. It's the greatest game evah! lmao
Haha you droids dont get to play this amazing 360 exclusive POS3 sucks ahahahhaha!! In before pp !
The only thing this game will do now is drag down the overall average of 360 games.
first frontlines fuel of war, then command and conquer and now destroy all humas..now this is a next generation console
*Prepares for 360 fans to hail it as the sleeper hit of '08* Edit: Oh GOD! I just watched the video. If they _weren't_ having development problems on 360, what would the PS3 version have looked like! No wonder nobody had heard of this game.
WOW thats amazing
I agreed with you out of pity.
hi xbox fans, you can hit the "disagree" button? wow amazing. no really, Destroy all humans is a crappest game ever. good luck playing on xbox 360.
Game of the year '08....
oh darn.. I was hoping this would take the place of Killzone 2 in my ps3 library.
First one was fun.
I was coming here to post this exact statement, I played the first one and enjoyed it very much, I might buy this one if priced right.
that I ended up giving that game to gamestop for $20 just to get the Sims 2, LOL. I ended up keeping GOW.
I remember Frontlines was also canceled for PS3.THQ really needs to restructure themselves if Path of the Furon is selling well
yeah if THQ can develop games like Saints Row 2 etc for the PS3 flawlessly compared to the 360 version... can't they share some tech around or get Sony to help? Insomniac are in the business of helping developers with issues on the PS3 if this is to be the case... then THQ just missed out on a lot of sales, since DAH was quite popular on the PS2 and im sure some converts were looking forward to the next iteration on PS3 (i know i was) and considering software sales on the PS3 are getting increasingly better... this was a rash move by THQ- i hope they at least made the effort to consult Sony beforehand, otherwise this is pathetic
Well hopefully we can see some footage soon because I'm curious to see how it's coming along.
I had this game on pre order :( damn it all. *goes into a rage of anger*
One less flop on the PS3 and one more for Xbox 360... Oh yeah Xbox FTW !!!
Of course you think it is "flop". Any game not on the PS3 is a flop in some of your reality-challenged minds. Why hate the Xbox 360? It's Sony's fault that the PS3 is such a crappy system to develop for.
Yeah ok, just like Bio shock until you DID get it and said how it was going to be terr on the PS3 and it was a turd. BUMP Heyheyhey "THQ just missed out on a lot of sales" REALLY? since when do PS3 owners buy games and as if it would sell better on the PS3 then the 360. PLEASE
Don't really care that much. I was excited for it cuz I liked the first two, but with everything else coming out not so much anymore. However I don't really get how it could have been development issues this close to the release date. I seems a little weird...
ouch, that's a bit sad... i like the DAH games this is bull though.... how incompetent must you be to STILL not be able to properly develop for the PS3, i thought this development crap was over... i hope Sony get's Insomniac or Naughty Dog down there to straighten this sh!t out promptly
I'm just going out on a limb here, PS3 owners don't care, right? same way you guys don't care the 360 got the GTA4 DLC, or every game whether timed or not that is exclusive to the 360.
and I care I was looking forward to this game :_(
