Yes it's the PS3's fault that our game didn't sell as well as it should of seeing that it's found on many other systems... oh wait crap..

Now that must have put a hole in they're pockets no doubts, But to go has far to blame the PS2 for their miserable sale is little bit to far don't you guys think. Anyways it won't help to blame on ps2. Better get working guys to get back those losses

Lets all hold up the release of a next gen system, just because they have another game with the big breasted bint in it.
