I want to say this to any idiots that think is sony's fault. STFU!!!!!!!!!, the ones that changed the dates were Vivendi & Ubisoft. SONY DIDNT DO NOTHING. DONT SAY THINGS THAT ARE NOT TRUE YOU STUPID ****
Ubisoft and Vivendi announce that some games--including Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion--have slipped past Friday's launch date.
European gamers hoping to get their hands on all the previously announced PlayStation 3 launch titles this week may have to revise their plans. A total of five titles will not be making it to shelves on March 23, according to a last-minute announcement made by two top publishers.
Bethesda Softworks' epic role-playing game Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has been pushed back to April 27, and Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent will now be on sale the week after the console's launch, March 30. Other Ubisoft-published titles that won't make the launch are Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, coming in June, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas, which is now touted as coming in "spring 2007."
Vivendi Games also confirmed that the supernatural-themed first-person shooter F.E.A.R. will also not be a launch title for Europe and will likely be released on April 20 instead.
salsificate JAJAJAJA does Sony ever have a good news??? lol not on gamespot try IGN for more good news
@ everyone who saw the graphics comparison vid on gametrailers.com!! If you guys saw the two videos on elder scrolls, you can clearly see that the xbox version cannot handle that game. there are sooo many load times on the XBOX its not funny!!!! Look at the extra things they've added on the PS3 version. Before they rated this game on gamespot, the xbox version had the BEST sign beside indicating that this game is best on XBOX but behold it longer is there. Even the people at Bethesda Softworks games said they were massivly rendering the graphics to meet PS3 standards in an interview. You see more horses more people, more clouds, smoother graphics as well brighter. Thats also why on gametrailers the headline said, "The MIGHT Mircosoft Game JUST go PS3 PWNED!!!!!!!" Stop hating and face the facts xbox fans!!! PS3 own hardware comparisons!!!
ha if it was gundam then every1 would be throwing a party i didnt even bother t trade it in i just blew it to hell worst game ever i feel sorry for every1 who worked on that game
?599 for that over-hyped Sony machine is too much anyway. If september is the release date for Halo3 then that'll be my target for buying an Xbox360.
If this were Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire that was missing from the launch, this news wouldn't be nearly as bad. But these are five good or great games. That's what really makes it sting. It's especially disconcerting when you add it to the laundry list of delays and shortcomings that have plagued the European launch of the PlayStation 3. I mean, I thought the launch in the US was bad... Don't get me wrong, the PS3 is a very nice console, and I'm confident that it will live up to its potential as a great system in this generation (if not the greatest). But Sony could really use some good news regarding this console for a change.
What, no F.E.A.R for U.K launch date!!! I wanted this so badly! Mind you I had my suspicions, as my local Blockbuster didn't have a pre-order code for it and said that they therefore couldn't guarantee it for Friday. Oh well, I was going to get Resistance as well and I have heard that that is brilliant so it should definitely bridge the gap nicely for the F.E.A.R release.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- right on. at least Sony fans weren't left in the cold like some xbox adopters. ouch. the lack of memory capacity like dvd's will soon catch up. gears of war anyone. Already pushed the limit of xbox quite early in fact. Leading to xbox Zephyr Version. 2 already. Looks like Microsoft did something wrong building there system early. It's only been 2 years people. Could mark a waste of money for all you xbox 360 owners. Sucks to be you people. I have a high def, gaming, internet browser, free online play all in one. Just a matter of time before, well you get the idea. Plus us americans get to play 98 percent of our old games compared to your whopping 30%. That's gotta be a low blow. Talking about being left out in the cold. Oh I'm laughing at you foes...." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sorry but I found that post incredibly funny. I have no doubts that the PS3 will eventually be a success, but your condemning of the Xbox is ridiculous. Yes, Gears pushes the system, but we're still early in the console's lifespan. My console seems to work much harder when I pop in PDZ, and it's hardly the most graphically brilliant titles out there to say the least. Compression and coding techniques get better, and once the triple core of the 360 is properly harnessed we'll see great improvements too, as PS3 owners will when the Cell is used properly. As for the Zephyr... You seem to be confused. It's exactly the same machine, but with HDMI and a bigger hard-drive. I'm guessing the Core will be discontinued, the Premium reduced and the Zephyr introduced as the top-spec model. Anything you can do with the Zephyr will be doable with current 360s (with the exception of using HDMI). I don't rally mind the lack of BC on the Xbox 360 to be honest. I'd had an Xbox as my main console for the past 4 years and I'd played all of what I wanted to. There's the odd title I like such as Psychonauts and Halo, but they're covered so it's fine. I don't have a PS2 at the moment and wanted to get a PS3 to play PS3 and PS2 games as it was such a touted figure. Now that games I want to play, like Canis Canem Edit and MGS3 have "noticeable problems" I'm probably better off just getting a PS2 and probably 20 or so games for the price of a PS3. I can use my 360 if I want some next-gen action. Only thing that pulls me to the PS3 now is MGS4... there really aren't any other real exclusive console sellers for me (I'm not a great RPG fan).
X360 sucks, wait for ps3 a little bit longer. PS3 is ten times better than the x360. Its worth the while, believe me, I have it.
I guess Sony is gonna continue the tradition of having crappy console launches. Although it might not be as embarrasing as the US/Japan launch it still won't meet their expectations. U guys overseas are missing out on a truly legendary game that Elder Scrolls 4 is. Can't Sony do anything right?
Can't really blame Sony for third party developer's missing their release dates though, as much as some may want to! Miffed about Oblivion though, as the wife's off ill and it would have been the one game she would be interested in (she loves her RPGs).
That sucks:( I am sorry for the Euro gamers:( I hope they hopes aren't too crushed and they are patient and don't decide to switch platforms.... bad PS3... BAD!:|
Why I don't understand??? First set back on PS3 getting here, then cut down on how many PS3 games we can play, Now this we have to wait for the good games to get here!!! When will the madness end, Aussie buys loads of techs for our home, one of the top 10 in the world, so why do we get cut backs and other crap. This sucks the massive big one
you would think at om poin a european based company would try to make their own machone for that market. they would clean up aganst the others,
We knew something had to be delayed. Good Idea, make them right the first time. These five titles are going to be released just around the time people are finishing their launch games. Not a bad trade off.
mmm... better graphics, longer wait time. This sounds familiar, looks like the playstation and xbox have truly traded places. And who won last generation, playstation. Why.. bigger install base, lower priced system, true exclusives. Sorry Japan but USA rules u this time.
Haven't all those games listed been available for another platform long enough for no one to really care?
ouch, now this has gotta hurt - especially to EU and possible AU. PAL regions are always getting sharfted
Actually 1up just reviewed Oblivion on the PS3 and said it looks almost identicle and has some seem problems in dungeons that the 360 version did not.
VanKroy And dont forget that those versions will be better than the ones before. Elder scrolls will have enhanced graphics and a new place. Splinter cell DB will have enhanced graphics as well and new missions with a hot girl spy. So europeans just wait a little longer. THOSE NEW VERSIONS ARE REALLY WORTH THE WAIT enhanced graphics are you kidding me you having been doing your homework, NONE of the games that were on the Xbox 360 earlier then came out on the ps3 later had better graphics most agree that they were worse sooooo dont assume that the graphics will be any better till they come out, not saying they wont but you have to atleast wait till it comes out before you can brag
is this going to be for the U.S, too? if it isnt that I hate how the games get out later in the year over in Europe and Australia
--VanKroy -- What do you expect a developer to say...this sucks? Comments like "This will be the best thing ever" are pointless. Wait till it ships and see. It's the same junk as when people would argue over Gears vs. RFoM...there really is no point until they are both out and played.
