PushSquare: "Tecmo's stomping action Playstation 3 exclusive - Quantum Theory - will not make it to Japanese stores until 2010, making a localized Western version not look likely until late next year; or even 2011."
and I don't see why localization should take that long. This isn't an RPG.
Well at this rate there won't be but 2 ps3 exclusives released this year.
A Gears of War clone that uses a game engine other than the UE3? Heck yeah, I'm game! So we will have to wait a year for it? Ok, guess I'll sit tight and play some Modern Warfare 2, Uncharted 2, Bioshock 2, God of War III, R&C, and many more while I wait it out.
So which of the following are actually coming this year? EyePet,MAG, GT5, GOW3, Yakuza 3, Heavy Rain, The Agency? So far for PS3 we know Uncharted 2, WKC, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Demon's soul, Afrika and Ratchet ACIT will be coming this holiday, but what else? Not as big as many claimed. Where Is WarDevil and all those Cellius games?
seems like forever we have been waiting and no games. Too bad for Huxley too!!!
Wow that is bad news. Hopefully this means they will upgrade it and all because it was not exactly a graphical powerhouse considering its exclusive status (yes that pic on the site shows otherwise but that's due to compression: the game has bad aliasing issues) It also might not be as well received, especially if Gears 3 gets released around that time. I have hope in this game, so come on Tecmo, deliver :)
was going multiplatform. Not to turn this into a bash Gears fest but if I am being totally honest, unless Epic does some serious tweaking to UE3 or comes out with a newer engine altogether? I personally am not even interested in another Gears on the 360. It's too much a hit or miss online and that wouldn't be so bad if Epic allowed you to quit a room without having to turn off the game completely and then taking a -1500 point hit on your next match.
Haha. no one plays Gears anymore...
@2.1 then stop quitting matches when you start to loose @2.2 i guess MS has been lying about gears2 being the #4 most played game for over 5 months
It just goes to show you how insecure fanboys are on this site when a fellow gamer can't give an honest opinion without moronic remarks like yours. You have to look no further than my profile to see I am a 360 gamer and Gears 2 is the last game I played on my console. I don't quit because how myself or my team is doing, actually I think I only quit once, I quit because the server is lagging so hard that it is completely unplayable. Anyone that has seriously played Gears 2 online and is honest, will admit Gears 2 has serious lag issues (at times) and matchmaking ( again at times) is still cumbersome. When you have something to actually contribute come back. Until then go ask mommy for a hug and some cookies. Oh and before you come back with the weak excuse get a better connection? Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time. I have the fastest connection my area has to offer and I pay through the nose for it. I don't have any issues with lag in any other game like I do in Gears of War 2. The game is subpar online (at times and dependent on the P2P connection) and you're kidding yourself if you believe other wise. Oh and BTW I have taken -1500 point hits for losing my connection to poor P2P connections. Yeah that's a great ranking system. Oh and BTW, BTW. I wouldn't pound my chest on where Gears of War 2 ranks online considering it's pretty much always been 4 or 5 on XBL since it launched. Why do you think that is? Don't you think it should have had the number 1 or 2 spot for at least a month or 2? The reason it didn't is because of the performance issues and a lot of Gears (1) fans (which I am one of them. I probably logged 2000 hours on the original online) not digging the new matchmaking system and all the other issues at launch.
No issue for me. Too many good games in 2009 coming already, I like to have something to look forward to for the farther future. Also, I highly doubt a game like this will have a long localization time. It seems like a western-themed style of gameplay more than most Japanese games, what with it being sort of Gears-inspired and all. It'll probably have a short localization period, OR it may even be a simultaneous release.
Yeah, so long as they use the time wisely to make the game better, there's plenty of action games in 2009. One such Uncharted 2 springs to mind; not to mention Assassins.
I guess some developers are realizing that 2009 is already too packed with games. Rockstar delayed RDR and Mafia2, Tecmo is delaying QT. IMO that is a good thing. I can afford a limited number of games, most of them exclusives and some multiplats if they prove to be real good. I'll expect the other to reach the bargain bin. I already got inFAMOUS, but I want R&C:ToD2, NGS2, UC2, WKC, DS. Ghostbuster, Batman:AA are the multiplayer games that interest me. Additionally my PSP is taking me away from my ps3, I want Dissidia:FF, Persona, perhaps motorstorm and LBP.
I completely forgot about this game. That sucks.
But no one ever said Quantum Theory was coming in 2009, it was always gunna be a 2010 release. Im happy their delaying it and trying to make it as perfect as posssible. It has to be if it wants to dominate Gears 2. Either way Ps3 HAS A TON of stuff happening in 09'. But now its tyme to worry about 2010. I hope Sony doesn't do anything stupid and release God of War 3 this year.
Why would a western release be delayed until 2011 or pushed bach beyond a Japan release? This game was made for a western audience, and Tecmo releases all of their stuff worldwide. Fact check or don't say anything. This isn't Final Fantasy XIII.
It's good if it's not coming out this year. I just don't see enough room for another shooter this year. We already have Killzone 2, and MW2, BF BC2, and Uncharted 2 are all coming out in the next 6-8 months. Plus games like Heavy Rain, GOW3, WKC, Demon Souls, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Ratchet TOD2, plus Multiplatform games like BioShock 2, AC2 etc. etc. all coming out within the same period of time, it would have been lost in the crowd of sequels and big name titles.
Well hopefully it's for the best, but why did they even bother showing it last year ?...
Oh it will be for the best in the end.When artists/devs get more time,it can only be a good thing.Plus you have to consider that they may have added content,and or a new gameplay twist. More polish will always help.This game is one of my most anticipated after seeing it up close and personal at lasts years E3. What they showed last year was a early build,really just a proto-type,they could also be going through a small rebuild,a tweak to the overall plan........I got to see some concept art,and target renders,that is a true window in some of what will come in the game itself down the road,and it was very impressive, a cut above most games,even in it's early stage ....Plus the gameplay shown has lots of promise.... I wish it was out this fall,but a game like this, quite ambitious,and with quite a backing behind it like this one needs more time,you really should do it the justice,and give it the tender loving care it deserves.
getting enough Tecmo love this year... Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 baby! i hope they release some media on Quantum soon, the game looks a bit average so far.. i want to be convinced otherwise
No biggy. I'm already satisfied with the amazing line up this year. Another great game saved for 2010 doesn't hurt.
blah blah blah delaystation! Dont bother cause their are tons more games coming out this year!.
just like in 07 the good ol DELAYSTATION
I wasn't aware that this game was releasing this year. Did Tecmo stated that this game as going to be release this year when they announce it?
will probably be ready for show at TGS. wasnt it first announced at TGS?
They're working on NGS2 so that's understandable.
The groundwork for that game has already been created, so it shouldn't require too many resources to finish Sigma 2. But, either way, its better to take your time than rush something. They'll definitely need to use smart release timing for this game.
...all of the PS3's exclusive game line-up coming out this year rushed because "fans" wanted the games so badly, or the fans have a little thing called patience and wait for the developers to perfect the game and then have a quality product..? There's already enough games coming out this year for the PS3 alone... a bit of balance would be nice!
of us suspected that most of the PS3 games people have been screaming about all year would be delayed anyway. You would have to be pretty slow not to realize this has become a pattern with Sony.
Thats not a Sony owned company....
Sucks if it's delayed but tbh I'm not worried because we've got a string of great games that we know will be awesoem in the meantime. The truth of the matter is that whilst Quantum Theory definitely has some promise we don't know if it's going to be any good or not. Can't wait to get home from work and get back into inFAMOUS!
Whatever. Im happy with what weve got now. Tbh i forgot about this game and it shouldent have been announced yet...
Nobody pays any attention to them... not even microsoft. Got any games ???
I've come to the (rather obvious) conclusion that the 360 extremists who come prancing into the PS3 section (you know, the section for the console they despise and have no interest in) are children. Be it a physical or mental state, they are kids: irresponsible, immature brats incapable of functioning on a rational level. Their bleatings shame the normal, mature 360 owners (of which there are many) every time they open their pathetic mouths, and their utterly predictable mewlings (the same tedious mantra EVERY TIME) paints them as the imagination-starved fools that they really are. Get knotted.
Can't say I remember them giving a release date yet though. But I doubt it will slip to 2011 in EU/US. A 2010 release seems fine, more than enough games coming already...
Let them take their time. I'm sure the more they work on it the better it will be. There are plenty of games coming for the rest of 2009 and for 2010.
Thank god, to many damn good games this year.
That's actually good news, so they can take their time to make a badass game while we enjoy plenty other 2009 titles. Quantity is nice but quality is also important.
From the trailer that was shown at the TGS this looks pretty cool. I'm glad to see it go to 2010 so I can have time to save up money for it after I buy all the great excusives this Christmas. But 2011 is a little too far. Christmas 2010 would be nice. But Tecmo, take your time.
This game comes out on the same day?
Damn it! I was really looking forward to see how this game turned out. I hope it comes out in 2010 not 2011
1. This game never had a released date. 2. No PS fan was hypeing this game let alone include in any 2009 lineup. You people fail.
i haven't been following it (too many other games actually out/releasing that have had my interest). i know it's from Ninja Theory, so at the least it should have some fun gameplay, but it's just not on my radar yet (like WarDevil - another one i only heard of briefly). in either case, there are so many higher profile Playstation 3 titles releasing this calendar year (ie, inFAMOUS, White Knight Chronicles, Uncharted 2, MAG, Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time, Heavy Rain, etc), that it doesn't surprise me if this one is given some more breathing room. from the looks of it, it totally seems like an early in the year type of title, while the big guns hit throughout the rest of the year.
