Fatal Inertia and Bladestorm: The Hundred Year War are now set top appear on the 360 as well.
Guys, this isn't looking too good for the PS3. Albeit, both titles weren't exactly blockbuster, system sellers, they still were designed for the PS3 then jumped ship. For me atleast its getting harder to want a PS3, if this keeps happening. All I have left for the system is WNS, Heavenly Sword, FFXIII, and RE5 and DMC4, which both have a strong leaning toward multiplatform.
RE5 was announced from the beginning for 360 and PS3, White Knight Story and Heavenly Sword are afaik published by Sony, FF13 is imo to complex to go multiplattform.
Just another developer who decided to go multiplatform, and I don't think it's Sony's fault, but the fact that they want to get more money. Given the quality of their products (in non-Japanese terms), I don't think I'll care at all. Fatal Inertia seemed to get better each time we saw it, but WipeOut is what I want.

I've never understood what the big deal was about going multi-platform.
All the systems have their "go to" titles that will never jump ship, and those seem to be the ones that make or break the systems. I mean, the entire GTA series went to Xbox, but it was still the PS2 that took control of it. Yeah, they weren't right on time, but still. Anyone get my point?
And besides, as long as its going to your system, whats the big deal? Playstation 3 really isn't going anywhere.

I agree. as a gamer, all I care about is having a game on the system of my choice/already have. I don't care if it appeared on every other system or not.I've never understood what the big deal was about going multi-platform.
that is the important thing for those who worry they will lose features or will not get the best experience because their port/version of said game won't get the attention it deserves. well, for the two games mentioned here, they were, presumably, built from the ground up for PS3, then ported to X2.they still were designed for the PS3 then jumped ship
don't rush it and then regret it a few months later like how many did with PSP or DS. wait till you are sure and don't just get something because everybody else wants it or because it is "in" at the moment. you are making an investment wich will live with you for at least half a decade. you don't want to get messy after a few months. it just wouldn't be worth it. give it a rental if you have to, just to see if you really want it.For me atleast its getting harder to want a PS3
also, many are going multi-platform and are a bit shady with PS3 is very reasonable. on one hand, you have a capable system which sold 6 million units and is available everywhere. on the other hand, you have a system that is extremely hard to get a hold of and that only sold around 250k units world wide. I am even surprised to see any 3rd party exclusives at this time, whether timed exclusive or not.
give a new console a chance. once supplies become stable and abundant, about six months from now, you'll start seeing it catching up steam with regards to 3rd party exclusive projects. give it room to stand on its feet and grow a little.

I agree tatally with Z.
Great post man!
i think FI was made with unreal 3 engine that come as no suprize . bladestorm i think both ps3 and x box 360 would better of if that game die.
EURO METAL RULES ALL.
Also, Armored core is going to 360 as armored core 4
In my opinion, as long as we don't loose the game entirely, I am not bothered. Sure if the game was exclusive to PS3, it will be marginally better, but if its a game that clearly has multi platform potential any game company will take it if its not too difficult to do. However, games like WipeOut in my opinion are not what they used to be and even a next gen version wouldn't make me want it now so I would say its not a major loss. The 3 games that I would be devastated about if we lost them would be Devil May Cry 4, MGS4 and Final Fantasy XIII, but not gonna happen so I'm cool.
Even if this did matter to anyone, losing exclusives... do you honestly think either game is gonna be any good? I mean, I can maybe see Fatal Inertia being pretty fun, but not amazing, if it gets better graphically, and has the physics it boasted so much before. And Bladestorm is basically a more graphically intense Medieval 2 TW but with probably much crappier gameplay.
All KOEI is good for is their hot ladies at TGS.

Bladestorm looks HORRIBLE, gundam level quality.
Fatal Inertia looks interesting, but is no match for the future Wipeout PS3
Not really a big deal given the two titles.. I'm still interested to see how Fatal Inertia turns out though...Bladestorm not so much, that game looks like PS1 lol.
Fact: aside a few number of titles (mostly SCE games) most of games will go multiplatform.
Well multiplatform is the way of the future imo. Its not a bad thing, if you believe it'll somehow hurt the PS3 I think you underestimating the power of the brand in most people's brains. Most people today own a Ps2 and is happy with it, they'll upgrade as the opurtunity arises. Only people I see really fawning over the 360 is the PC crowd. But they never was the main target group of Playstation anyhow.
multi platform is bad for gaming . they usually have to limit themselves to the weakest console.
Yea i'd rather not have games goin multi-platform like that. Its coo to have some games but its the exclusives that makes the consoles different then each other (for the most part).
But i'm not crying over this one.
looks like we are headed to a future of maybe only sony games as an exclusive. atleast ps owners can still enjoy rockstar and squaresoft games being developed for the ps first.
one word...unreal engine 3.0
