Yer was'nt this game well into development for the 360? I thought the first vids they showed were for the 360 version. The 360 has more than enough shooters anyway, losing this generic looking fps with the drugs thing as its gimmick is'nt so bad. Now having to wait another 6 months for Unreal 3 is alot worse, since that actually looks like its gonna be something special, I'm surprised there aint a preview thread for it yet.
If the above sounds like a PS3 praising thats good. It means MS will need to raise their bar which is good for all us gamers. The last thing we want is for MS to get comfortable at the top and get lazy.
Well Haze did not really look to be bringing anything new to the party that has not already been seen in a myriad of games, but still a most odd move... since it's not really the sort of game that will shift consoles it would seem that the developers/publishers are content with the smaller profits that supporting the reduced PS3 user base only will generate.
Maybe they want to concentrate on getting the best out of the PS3 first then port it over to the X360 later. We all know its harder to develope on the PS3. Id rather it be that way round than be developed for the X360 and the PS3 get a shoddy port.
But then surely if that was the case they would have just released the 360 version and then spent a bit longer on the PS3 version until it was right?
Codemasters have done this with colin mcrae: dirt, and I cant see it affecting sales for the PS3 version as PS3 owners will still want to buy a game that is good.
All Free radical have done now is severly limit the sales potential of the game.
Because its easier to port a game from the PS3 to the X360. Most of the X360 to PS3 ports have been shocking and lazy.
This looked awful on todays episode of The 1Up Show, bland locales and framerate was all over the place.
