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.
