Announced at the Sony Conference.

WOW at the new trailer! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

EDIT:

Official:


IGN: There has been a ton of speculation about Haze becoming a PS3 exclusive. Now that it's official, can you talk a bit as to why you've decided to go "PS3 only?"

Dave Doak: PlayStation has always been something of a spiritual home for us, so we're delighted to be developing this game exclusively for PlayStation 3. The combination of its raw processing power and the versatility of the PlayStation Network make the PS3 the ideal platform for Haze.

Tony Key: Free Radical has an extraordinary history of developing on Sony consoles, and as their first offering in the next generation, it was a natural fit to launch Haze exclusively on the PS3 this holiday. This pedigree combined with Ubisoft's reputation for top quality FPS games and the power of the PS3 creates a recipe for success.

IGN: Is it a permanent exclusive or will it be timed, ala Oblivion?

Key: Haze will only be found on PS3 this holiday season, and will remain exclusive through the first quarter of the calendar year.

Watch the Sony conference mate, you might start to lean towards the PS3...

On Haze, it's pretty much as expected then: PS3 lead platform this year then out on 360/PC early next year presumably - Haze avoids the Halo sandwich and lands at a relative time of drought in which it can do probably far better on those platforms and with great word of mouth from the PS3 launch...

All my friends have 360's and it's cheaper. The games are all amazing on both sides... it's about time since there really hasn't been many big games for any of the 3 systems.

Anyways if Haze is for both I have my options open and that's all that matters.

I don't agree. First off, Resistance was the biggest launch game for the PS3, and has now sold around two million copies, which is almost half the user-base. That's an FPS on the PS3. Secondly, Timesplitters was (the best) PS2 launch title, and the series proved very popular on PS2 - more popular than on Xbox I'd wager, although I can't say for sure. Thirdly, it's almost certain that the entire reason you aren't getting Haze (or UT3) right now is that Halo 3 is coming out this year, so blame the 360 obsession with FPS games at the exclusion of almost all else for not getting either game this year if, you must blame something. If you completely saturate a closed market with the same kind of product you can hardly blame some companies from not trying to enter that market at the height of it's saturation.

Can't really disagree with that, if it weren't for everyone's obsession with those god awful Halo games, Ubisoft probably would have just kept it out at the same time on all formats. But with that overhyped thing on the horizon it's not even worth launching a game anytime before the start of 2008.

As you can tell I am rather pissed at Halo 3, both Unreal Tournament 3 and Haze would probably have stayed multi-format this Christmas if it weren't for that game. Now I haven't got a single game to buy up until sometime in 2008.

At least it's still coming to the 360, might take longer but I still get to play it. I've just gotta make sure to stay away from Haze forums after PS3 release to avoid spoliers >_>

I don't know about Haze, but I'm pretty sure Unreal Tournament 3 being PC and PS3 exclusive this year has nothing to do with Halo 3.

It's pretty crazy though that the PS3 has suddenly become such a valid choice for FPS gaming. I mean, Resistance is already out, then there's Haze and UT3 as well as COD4 for this year, and we all saw Killzone 2 (oh my god) which is due Q1 2008... it's pretty bizarre really.

deded999
07-14-2007, 07:23 AM
Bizarre? I don't know why - as far as I can see, the only reason the Xbox/360 became such a FPS magnet was because it had close links to the PC market, (MS, similar hardware design), it's killer-app was an FPS and it had better online support, which has always been led by FPS, (until recently at least).

There's no reason that the PS3 should be weaker in supporting FPS - in fact, bearing in mind it has an HDD as standard, supports k/m AND user-created mods, the PS3 is probably the best home FPS's can have on consoles. I think we're starting to see that now.

Well - I waited for TimeSplitters 1 until the PS2 dropped in price, so I suppose I'll just have to wait for Haze. But I really hope you guys got a sweet exclusivity bonus, because this is just not a very nice way to treat the multiplatform fanbase you've built up over the past 5 years.

Crazy disappointed w/ET:QW atm. I got a chance to play it on the PC. It's not really a tactical shooter, but rather a deathmatch shooter with vehicles and a modicum of tactics. It doesn't even approach the depth of Battlefield 2. I can consistently rack-up the Best Soldier and Worst Accuracy awards with a rocket launcher... and not by killing vehicles either...

The PS3 is too expensive to buy, and yet your PC is much stronger? How much more did your PC cost than a PS3 pray tell?

And enjoy playing Metal Gear 4, Heavenly Sword, Final Fantasy XIII, GTA IV, Tekken 6, Disgaea 3, Gran Turismo 5, Little Big Planet, Uncharted, Soul Caliber 4, etc, etc, not to mention any 360 exclusives that don't go to the PC, (if any exist). Oh, wait you won't be able to...

I can understand PC owners bigging up their system, but it's the same as any other - it has it's hardware limitations (yes) and just like any other system it only gets some of the good games, not all of them.

Not much if he already needed a new PC anyway. Anyway, the PC has a match for almost every one of those games except perhaps SC4 and LittleBigPlanet (but the Wii has SC: Legends, so...). And, pray tell, what was the last RTS game you played on your PS3? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Xbox 360 exclusives consist of pretty much Halo 3, Halo 3, and more Halo 3, and I seriously couldn't care less about Halo 3.

Btw, supposedly the 9800 series of nVidia cards (meh, weird to say 9800 and be talking about nVidia) will be coming out soon (which will be a great excuse for them to drop the price of the 8800GTS so that I can slap another one in for practically nothing in SLI for some pure ownage of UT3, CoH: OF, CoD 4, Bioshock, GoW, etc...)

Do some more research my friend. You see, you need a PC anyway- for word processing, e-mail, easy internet access, etc... So what the PC gamer is essentially doing is acknowledging that. They then simply add to that price- a better processor, a better graphics card, perhaps some more RAM... Sure, you could end-up spending what a PS3 costs in upgrades, but you could also spend the price of a Wii on upgrades (upgrading a modern processor for a casual computer to a processor fit for high-end gaming is relatively cheap these days- for example, there's only a .2 GHz difference between my dual core and my mother's- but the processor I have now is more than suitable for my current and future needs). The price of a gaming PC is really the final price you pay, subtracted from the price you would have paid for a casual PC. If you want to get a PC that can match the PS3 or 360, you can generally do that for a price reminiscent of the core 360's. If you want to surpass both of those, you can generally do so for about the price of a 360 premium, or possibly a PS3 depending on how far you want to go. You could of course go way overboard, but then again, that's your choice.

The key thing to note here is that your PC does not get outdated within a year. I know people who got decent- note the word decent- gaming PC's four years ago who can still play modern PC games on low settings. And here enlies the difference between the PC and the console. With a console, you get the same performance throughout its generation. You don't have the option of getting better performance until a new console comes out. With a PC, you have the OPTION of getting better performance whenever you want. However, you're also just as welcome to purchase a PC today which can match the 360 and PS3, and you'll get that same performance throughout- sure, you won't be playing games on max settings, but you'll be playing them on the same settings the PS3 and 360 are.

The key thing to note is that the PC gives you the option- the OPTION- to upgrade whenever you want to. PC games are constantly utilizing the latest in technology, and if you want to play games at max settings (which, if you're smart about it, is probably a $200-300 a year cost), you have that option. However, if you don't want to shell out that money, you can keep playing games at the same settings you had been.

Thus, your gaming PC costs no more then YOU want it to- it's a price not dictated by any console manufacturer, but rather a price that is dictated solely by what YOU want.

at this moment in time,

i can quite honestly say..

Consoles are getting owned in this Arguement http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif

on a serious note, i only own a PC , its all i ever will own
everything i do, gaming, chating, emailing ..etc.. is done on my PC,i even get a better chance of playing online ( without an Extra subscription)in a much more diverse way! why not play games like "haze" on a PC where EVERYTHING about the game would be better? if you can name one thing a console has over a PC id love to hear it!! (ok, split screen multi player gets 1 mark)

A PC can deliver just about Everything Better than a console! with the cost of a next gen console being so high its boosting PC's that little bit more..

I could make an argument for the Wii against the PC, but the divide between the Wii and the PC is enormous. It's truly impossible to compare the two. They're just on two, totally diverging paths, and supply two, completely different experiences. However, the same cannot be said for the PS3 and 360, which seem to be moving ever closer to emulating PC's.

Anyway, split-screen multiplayer is definitely one area where the consoles have the upper hand, but if you have both a PC and a Wii, you get the best of both worlds, because the Wii is basically made for same-room multiplayer.

What were you playing? You can't judge a whole console by a single game... If one were to do that, I could easily take the Xbox and PC, and choose Halo 2 as the Xbox game, and Battlefield 2 as the PC game, and the PC would come out way, way on top with zero argument (except for, ya know, the brainwashed dudes).

I think you're talking about Red Steel. There was a reason that game got an average review of about 5/10, and it's definitely not an accurate reflection of the Wii's capabilities. Raving Rabbids I'm guessing was the other- which is basically a multiplayer minigame fest not unlike Mario Party. You should have picked-up Zelda: Twilight Princess in your time with the Wii http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif It may be both a GameCube and Wii game, but it quickly becomes evident how the Wii improves the experience.

RTS-wise, the Wii should be the best console platform for RTS games given its control mechanism- the only thing holding it back really is processing power (the graphics I can live with- however, the Wii could have used a bit more processing power). Nonetheless, Battalion Wars 2 (RTT) will be coming out this Fall.

FPS-wise, there's Metroid Prime 3, which should be here by the end of next month- and given the initial reports, it sounds as if they've finally gotten the control scheme nailed-down for FPS games. Of course, FPS games are not the only kinds of shooter games. You also have GHOST Squad coming out- your standard light-gun arcade shooter- as well as Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (also a light-gun shooter, but you'll be moving your view around with the nunchuck analog stick while you're shooting w/the Wiimote).

Then, of course, there's always Super Smash Brothers...

Meh, I still haven't gotten around to picking-up RE4 Wii- need to do that (it's more PC than the PC version, lol- the PC version forces you to use a gamepad, whereas w/the Wii, Wiimote FTW!).
