Haze is PS3 exclusive for the foreseeable future

According to German website eXp, and recently re-affirmed by Gamespot, an announcement was made regarding Haze at Leipzig that caught our attention. It seems that the title, initially scheduled as a PS3 exclusive for this year and slated for a 360 release early next year, has become a permanent exclusive feather in Sony's cap. If you're looking for a console version of Haze, you've only got the PS3 to choose from. Yep -- the 360 version has dropped off the map along with the PC build. We don't know why.

To keep this from becoming a "ha, ha, take that 360 bots!" comment thread, we'd like to discuss a few of the reasonings for this announcement -- all speculative, of course. First, Sony doled out a hefty sum of money to grab the game's exclusivity forever. To do that, they must be confident in the game's ability to sell well and is getting incredibly positive reactions from gamers and game journalists, which it really is. A second possible reason is the difficulty Haze developers are having moving all the stuff from the PS3 to the 360 -- utlizing Blu-ray and standard hard drive space may have spoiled them. It's not to say they couldn't actually make the game for 360, it's just that they felt the quality of the experience would be severely hampered and scrapped it. We'd sooner give the nod to our first assumption, but we'll leave it up to you guys to discuss this. Either way, we know the PS3 will be getting a fantastic game built with its strengths in mind.

5. Its called good business since 360 has AAA fps coming out. Making this for ps3 will get it some attention from the press. I know I will check for it.

6. This game looks fantastic. Plus, they use real actors for the cutscenes! Oh wait, that's a bad thing. I can't shake the feeling of PS1 Resident Evil.

7. "I can't shake the feeling of PS1 Resident Evil"

8. @EDGE
LOL Dude I'm not a troll.I go with the system that has more to offer and that is the 360.But when I say it looks bad I'm being honest cause if this where to come out on the 360 (which it will mark my words)next year
I definitely wouldn't get it.

9. haze looks better than halo either way i'm getting both ya poor bastards

Posted at 3:11PM on Aug 31st 2007 by ion666

10. @corbin

So if you go with the console that you worship wholeheartedly, then why come here ?

Answer: because you are a troll.

Posted at 3:14PM on Aug 31st 2007 by EDGE

11. Oh well, you guys need all the *cough* help *cough* I mean games you can get.

Posted at 3:19PM on Aug 31st 2007 by VOS

12. @Corbin

You probably heard millions of times, but keep your comments to your self. Nobody here wants to hear your flamboyant remarks.

Posted at 3:21PM on Aug 31st 2007 by SolidsS

13. I see corbin brought a friend. Because 2 trolls are better than one.

Posted at 3:24PM on Aug 31st 2007 by EDGE

14. @9
You know it's weird but I swear why do so many ps3 fanboys also have 360's?strange.By the way Halo's graphics are pretty good being that it has mush bigger
environments than Haze which is just a lot of small areas.

Posted at 3:25PM on Aug 31st 2007 by Corbin

15. @everyone re: Corbin & VOS
rule #1 - don't get them wet
rule #2 - don't feed them aftermidnight.

i see that someone's broken those rules, however, seeing as they're multiplying!

16. It's about time Sony ponied up some cash and got themselves an exclusive. You can hypothesize all you want about port complications, but I doubt that was it. I bet Sony bought this after seeing the reviews of two of their A-List titles (Heavenly Sword and Lair) go sour. Good for them.

I'll likely get this for my PS3 when it drops.

Posted at 3:29PM on Aug 31st 2007 by Ithilis

17. HAHAHAHAHA I didn't get a friend I guess he just decided to comment.

Posted at 3:29PM on Aug 31st 2007 by Corbin

18. "You know it's weird but I swear why do so many ps3 fanboys also have 360's?"

Well thats simple young padawan. PS3 costs 500-600 which is a lot for a video game console. Casual gamers (not many at least) do not really find that price reasonable for their needs. But a Hardcore gamer will not have a problem dropping that. PS3 is less than 1 year old. Early adoptoys tend to be hardcore gamers. Also, Hardcore gamers tend to buy all systems (we r da shit). Therefore, a large portion of PS3 owners are hardcore gamers and own more than one console.

Make sense?

19. i think 360fanboys come here maybe because *gasp* the article pretains to a 360 port???

why all the yellow in haze in the first place? anyways FPS plays better with a 360 pad. feels like a gun and the sticks provide more resistance. ino ino "PS3 has Keyboard and Mouse" blah blah blah.

i realize the superior control, but hey i first played a FPS on a console and it felt more comfy.

20. "ha, ha, take that 360 bots!"

* leaves ps3 alone with no games and goes off to play cod4 beta.
