When people talk about all the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusives, too many forget about Tecmo's Quantum Theory …and it's not something they should forget.
Initially, the comparisons were inevitable: because it's a third-person shooter that apparently utilizes a cover system – like most all titles that fall into this genre – everyone began comparing this PS3 exclusive project to Epic's Gears of War . In fact, over-anxious Sony fans have been wanting to kill Quantum Theory the "Gears" killer, but that may be more inaccurate than they know. According to Gaming Union , Tecmo localization producer Peter Garza addressed the subject at hand:
"Yeah, everybody compares it to Gears of War (laughs). Obviously it's a sci-fi third-person shooter and we have a big guy for a main character. What we're trying to do is make a third-person shooter that only Tecmo can make. We know action games. We have Ninja Gaiden, so we're trying to incorporate some of that action game feel into third-person shooters."
Man, if they're going to try to somehow incorporate the blinding speed of a Ninja Gaiden into the slower-paced third-person shooter style, we could get something pretty damn special. But as of now, details remain a little thin on the project, and all we know is that Quantum Theory is scheduled to launch some time next year. But we can't wait to uncover more info so we can get a nice close look at this bad boy; we have plenty of faith in Tecmo, so we'll be very interested to see more of this particular exclusive.
