From L.A. Noire To Agent, Rockstar And Its Broken Promises Of PS3 Exclusivity

by Ernice Gilbert on June 12th, 2011, under Article, PS3, Rockstar, Sony

In the days of PS2, Sony controlled the gaming business. The entertainment company back then, was dominant in every way. PS2 was the most popular console by far in its time, and exclusive after exclusive made their way onto said platform. From Grand Theft Auto To Final Fantasy XIII, from Metal Gear Solid to Onimusha, PS2 was the console to own and Sony was the firm to be aligned with. But things have changed, of course. We’re now in the seventh generation of consoles where Microsoft and Nintendo are major players with both, as of now, selling more hardware than Sony.

Yet some companies still opt to make exclusive games for PS3 even if there’s much more cash to be had by going multiplatform. Sucker Punch for example has worked solely on PS3 this generation although they’re not owned by Sony, and the recently announced Dust 514 by CCP are just two examples of the many exclusive games coming to the console in such a hostile market from third parties. L.A. Noire and Agent, two Rockstar games were promised by the developer as PS3 exclusives, but later we found out they’re also coming to other platforms. It’s a sad history of broken promises.

Get With It – The Best Games Are On PS3

by Ernice Gilbert on March 15th, 2011, under Articles, Hot, News, PS3, Sony

If you call yourself a gamer, you should at least own a PS3 or Xbox 360. They are both capable next generation consoles, and they both offer great value. You’ll have a blast on Xbox Live playing awesome games like Halo: Reach and Gears of War. There, you’ll also find all the multiplatform games we’ve come to love, with most of them being of a better quality on the 360.

So there’s no doubt the good folks who own said system have something of great value, but when it comes to games that are pushing console limits, those that have raised the bar, and those that have, and will continue to shape a generation, your gaze must turn to the PS3.

It’s not fanboy talk when I say the best games are on PS3. Let’s head past the break to find some of them.

Agent Is Still Very Much A PS3 Exclusive Confirms Rockstar

by Ernice Gilbert on June 9th, 2010, under News, Playstation 3, Rockstar

We gave you the reasons why Agent is a PS3 exclusive because rumors, since March, have been lingering around the net claiming the game would appear on other platforms.

Well according to the studio developing the game, the status remains the same: Agent is still a PS3 exclusive.

Last night in Take-Two’s Q2 earnings call, the question was posed on whether the game would go mulitplatform, company president Strauss Zelnick said:

“On Agent, there’s no change in situation on that title.”

And there you have it, no change at all. I guess if you want to experience the game, you’ll have to buy a PS3.

It’s only what, $299? No?

Thanks, CVG.

The Reasons Why Agent Is A PS3 Exclusive

by Ernice Gilbert on May 16th, 2010, under News

Exclusives will soon be something of the past, or at least that’s what many in the industry would like gamers to believe. And it’s true, if they’re referring to publishers like Activision, EA, THQ Take Two amongst others. It really makes no sense at all to make a game exclusive to one console and leave out 40 million potential consumers.

So why on God’s earth would Rockstar, the company behind stellar efforts like GTA, and the upcoming hot shot Red Dead Redemption develop another one of its promising titles, Agent, exclusive to Sony’s PlayStation 3?
