Namco Bandai has released a new batch of Beautiful Katamari screenshots. The fact sheet supplied with the screens listed the game for the Xbox 360 platform. A PS3 listing was absent.
the rumor of it being exclusive, I have to say............ I THINK NOT FIRST WOOHOO
If so, just a little friendly advice: The whole "first" thing is REALLY frowned upon here. Please bear that in mind when posting. This isn't AICN.
Duh dum dum dum..... Absent you say eh? Hrm.... Everywhere I read said it was 360 exclusive until I was brought to the attention of the Namco site with it listed as 360 and PS3. Seems like it would be a simple deal for Namco-Bandai to clarify? Either way.. Not my type of game. More something I would play on a hand-held but it's great the 360 keeps getting more and more diversity.
I wouldn't count the exclusiveness as a major coup for the 360 (such as MGS4 becoming 360-only, which ain't gonna happen). Katamari won't move consoles in North America. But in Japan...this may give MS a significant (if temporary) boost. It will also help expand the diversity of the 360's game catalogue, adding a unique title with broad-audience appeal.
@razer - The game was originally announced as a PS3 and Xbox 360 title. This is the first time its been listed as only for the Xbox 360 in a official document. By no means does this make the exclusivity official (Namco could've made an error), but it certainly does add weight to the rumors.
No prob. Every forum has its rules, both written and not. I was just trying to make you aware of one, in a friendly way. Cool?
I don't own an Xbox and have never heard of this game. Um, what the hll is it? Is that the Burger King guy? Someone please fill me in?
It first came out 2004 called "Katamari Damacy". It was a rather easy game to play, and quite addicting. Many people liked it for its simplicity and gameplay. I personally never really got into it. But I did play Katamari, and it was rather fun. A little advice, IF you wanna check this game out, keep an open mind. It's not bad, and you may enjoy it.
katamari was a sleeper hit for the ps2.
The grphics look like a straight port of ps2 version. Hopefully the gameplay would be the redeeming feature.
The game is all new but it is basically a *larger*, more elaborate version of the previous games in the series. Same basic mechanics and character designs. Better graphics (of course), more collectible items (3x+), more rewards, more "cousins" to play, plus online competitive (versus) and local coop play modes. Its a welcome addition to the 36's family-friendly game lineup.
I really enjoyed the former Katamari games, but graphics like this just isn't acceptable on next gen platforms. Same engine as the Ps2. If you want to talk about lazy developers, take a look at the japanese before you start blaming Ubisoft.
They said that they wanted to keep the original look. Well sorry but that is pathetic, all they need to do is up the poly count and textures and there you have it. It would still be completely Katamari; just you'd actually want to look at it. I'm not one to reward lazy devs with my hard earned cash thank you very much.
