OPM in the UK is supposed to feature info on BioShock for the PS3 in this March issue. Originally exclusive to Windows Vista and the 360, this would be a tough blow for Microsoft.

Note - This is 100% a RUMOR at this point, there is NO confirmation of this. Not even sure if the screenshot in the link below is legit.

[Update: 2K has just confirmed to us that OPM UK is quoting a press release from after E3 that didn't specify on a next-gen platform. In September, 2K announced Xbox 360 and PC exclusivity via a new press release. OPM is referring to the old press release from May, according to 2K. -- Robert Summa]

seems like less and less games are becoming exclusive.

So, it IS exclusive? And why would losing Bioshock be such a blow to MS? It looks interesting, but it's not like Halo 3 showing up on the PS3. :lol:

I agree that only a handful of games will truly be exclusive for the PS3 and 360. Most developers can't afford to lose sales by limiting a game to ONE console. If you think about it though, that is a WIN for MS, compared to the last gen and the Xbox and PS2.

I wouldn't doubt it. You'll just more then likely get a better game on the ps3 due to graphics and being able to add/fix more things by the time it does come to the ps3.

You're gonna have to give it a year like the 360..

I know Madden looks better. I will almost guarantee RB6 and GRAW will look better, plenty reviews said they have already, not to mention the ps3 version has a few extra things.

From what I have heard Oblivion for the PS3 could be better than the PC version with mods. But how many developers working on PS3 games will be able to do this? The credit for that work goes to Bethesda, not Sony.

I think it's obvious that PS3 has some great hardware, the question is whether or not they will have the dedicated developers to create the kind of games sony has been hyping up for the past few years.

I still wish both Sony and Microsoft held off longer on this supposed "next-gen". Just look at where the PC market is heading today in terms of technology, its just gross.

That will make a difference for sure. I wasn't impressed at all with the 360's capabilities at launch. They have turned things around big time since then, and from what Ive seen on some of the upcoming PS3 games- they are maturing quickly with time as well.

The only bad thing, unfortunately..is it almost seems PC games are becoming extinct with the 1 or 2 good games every few months. I remember when I used to go to EB/wherever and see PC games spread across the walls. Now they get a cart. I WISH PC gaming would become what it used to be again. Now most PC gaming is just MMO and your occasional FPS.

Microsoft is also going to insure that PC gaming remains at the front, because they intend to bring many major 360 hits over to the PC, pushing their whole "games for windows" Vista approach. I dont see coming to fruition for quite some time though, but dont feel bad about the PC. MMO, FPS, and RTS games only feel right on the PC, and the online experience in PC games is still unmatched by a large margin.

links or shenanigans....everything i've read is quite the obvious...which is hilarious because of the awesome power of the ps3 :sidelol:

give it a year? so basically....2 years from when the 360 came out is when we can look at games and say oh yeah ps3 looks a little better?


360 launch games looked better than the same games that ps3 launched with....and a year later to boot....


at this point and time sony and their fans have nothing to stand on....wii dominated ye...and 360 outperforms ye.....if and when ps3 comes around it could be too late :lol:

Playing games like FF12 (albeit for the PS2), Resistance, and Madden online has left me completley satisfied with my purchase.

Hey, Ridge Racer used to be a good game... back on um... the original Playstation. Some launch titles are just fillers. From what I've heard from the few people that actually have that game is that it's pretty fun but hey, what do I know.

you need to be promoted.
i think some guys take admin power a little toooooo seriously and become that teacher that now one likes. you gotta let people be themselves a little - thats what makes forum fun. I think you gain more respect that way from the people in the forms too - and when you actually tell someone to stop they respect your request and dont feel like your just on a power trip.

Not really..

What did 360 have at launch that looked amazing? When I compare the launch titles of the two sytems I compare COD2 and Resistance. Guess we'll have to wait till March to make a fair comparison really..

With the console, I know what I'm getting, in theory it should always work, and I can rent a game and try before I buy (not use hacks off torrents). Secondly it frees my computer up for projects while I'm playing. That was my logic anyway.

PC gaming is annoying in that way. Also the amount of bugs they release a game with is annoying as well. They aren't as bad as they used to be like shipping Master of Magic without the ability to cast the spell of mastery

Well, the initial mouse & keyboard set up for the 360 sadly was garbage. You will have no problems playing AoC on the 360's controller either, since the game is not going to play like any other MMORPG. The directional attacks work perfectly with a controller.

BTW, it has been announced that there is definitely going to be some "shared" servers between the 360 and PC world of AoC. There will still be servers dedicated for each platform, but the news of shared servers is great.

I see your point about the annoyance of upgrading so often, but that is the nature of PC gaming like it or not. You just need to know when to upgrade, and when to sit back and wait. For instance, anyone who bought a new PC when the new PCI-Express cards were released, will not have to worry at all about making the next step. Others who are still using older technology, will need to overhaul their entire PC for one of the new cards.

It's all about timing :wink:

Do you really want to put your controller down everytime you type or something though? Not sure how they would incorporate the voice chat with an MMO like that. It would also be a slight disadvantage for the PC users, and seeing as the game was first developed for the PC I'm sure those people will be rather pissed.

Do you really want to put your controller down everytime you type or something though? Not sure how they would incorporate the voice chat with an MMO like that. It would also be a slight disadvantage for the PC users, and seeing as the game was first developed for the PC I'm sure those people will be rather pissed.

There wouldn't be anything to get upset about really. For 360 users, the keyboard might seem out of the ordinary, but it would definitely be useful for playing a MMO. It seemed to have worked for FFXI. Voice chat can be done by using Microsoft's XBL Anywhere service. The fact that the game was originally developed on the PC doesnt make much of a difference, every game made for the 360 is developed on a PC. The 360 is basically a computer in a small box anyways, that is why the PC is going to see so many ports from successful 360 titles, especially the multi player hits.
