Sony loses another PS3 exclusive.

:woot:

It's the way it should be. I have a 360, but I think exclusives are not a good idea either way. We the gamers lose out.

March 19, 2007 - Take-Two has announced it is considering a possible sale of the company in light of the imminent management shakeup that threatens to ax several executives. The company has long been embattled with controversies relating to its games (Grand Theft Auto) and financial scandals.

According to Gamasutra, a group of Take-Two investors owning a 46 percent stake in the company are aiming to oust current CEO Paul Eibeler and reorganize the board of directors. Today the company announced it is postponing its annual meeting scheduled for March 23, 2007, until March 29.

A statement issued by Take-Two reads: "The purposes of the Board's actions are to provide additional time to review the proposed actions of the shareholder group and also to evaluate alternative courses of actions that could potentially be presented to the shareholders, including a possible sale of the Company."




Interesting, wonder if this will have an effect on GTA 4?

if MGS was out now it would be on 360....in a year the chances of it remaining ps exclusive is a bit higher because they will have sold some more consoles....

Losing any type exclusive like that is a mighty big blow, considering how popular DMC is.

Agreed.

Common sense says if Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 have the same "must have" 3rd party games, people will buy the console that is $200 cheaper.

Right now its:

PS3 - God of War3 :drool:, Gran Turismo 5 (or HD or whatever), MGS4, FFXIII (and versus), the next Jak and Daxter, Resistance fall of Man, Lair, and warhawk. Some of these are WAY off, but those are some of the heaver hitters that PS3 will be getting.

360 - Forza 2 :drool:, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyessy, Fable 2, Mass Effect :drool:, Crackdown, Halo3, Huxley, Age of Conan, Gears of War.. Like PS3, some of these might be WAY off.

There's 3 consoles competing. Also, the whole point was about better exclusives...3rd party.

By the way, you forgot LittleBigPlanet for PS3.

Also, I think Metal Gear Solid 4 will be heading to the Xbox 360 eventually.

While I do think the Devil May Cry series is a huge exclusivity loss for Sony, I've never been a fan of the series.

I'm just saying rumors are just that for now and I seriously doubt either will go to 360.
