We first said it several years ago: the days of the third-party exclusive are all but over. Now, it appears that yet another exclusive will be leaping to another platform, although we have nothing but speculation and teasing at this point.

Apparently, TheSixthAxis has inside information that the PlayStation 3 will be receiving a game that was formerly exclusive to the Xbox 360. It has to stay "under wraps" right now but supposedly, more information will be revealed within the next month. The studio that plans to make this big announcement also has "other exciting news to share soon enough," so perhaps during a typical summer where big news is tough to find, this will be a head-turner. Of course, we've heard such claims from sites before and many times, these so-called "inside confirmations" are nothing more than ill-advised attempts to drum up some extra traffic. However, feel free to guess at the mystery title; it almost can't be Gears of War as we believe Microsoft owns the publishing rights to that, and we'd like to think it's Splinter Cell: Conviction , but TheSixthAxis makes it sound like the game is already in existence on the 360. We really have no idea what it might be, but here's hoping it's true, at least.

And by the way, no, this isn't the special PS3 exclusive that we at PSXE know about. That game has yet to arrive for any platform and unfortunately, we're not allowed to talk about it, either…not for a little while, at any rate.

It is mass effect ..since the game did poor ly on PC and EA is almost bankrupt

Bioware is also doing dreagon's origin for ps3 and they love PS3 as well

EA owns the mass effect ip and Bioware had a 5 year old agreement with MS since Jade empire.
so definitely it is Mass effect

also L4D will be coming to ps3 as well since VALVE are now hiring ps3 programmers

Yea i was also thinking Splinter Cell Conviction.
That's right its definitely not Gears of War.
If it already exists then maybe L4D, y'know Valve are starting to like the ps3.

It is mass effect
L4D will also come to PS3 since EA is in a bad shape and they earn most money off PS3 SW sales

mass effect is owned by EA as well. Bioware loves PS3 and are making DO on PS3 .which will be out this October

When it comes to Valve, I somehow can not see them jumping off their lazy ass to make things happen and therefore, I don't really care if I ever see any Valve games on PS3.

This teasing thing SUCKS big time. I mean, what the heck is wrong with these so-called journalists these days? "I know this game is coming and I swear that's gona blow you away but if I tell you more, I'll have to kill you". C'mon, I mean keep your mouth shut if you can't say shit!

Also, why is the PS community going crazy right away? I mean, who knows if it's a major 360 exclusive or an XBLA title?

I think godsman is onto something. Square Enix has been making more announcements than a maternity ward in a big city hospital nine months after a power outage. What's one more announcement from them? Besides, SO4 would be a logical game to move to the PS3, and heaven knows they could sell a decent number of copies, probably a couple of times more than sold on the 360.

If SO4 was a timed exclusive, then we should be past the legal time frame. I'll guess that it's either SO4 or Left for Dead 2.

Ben when can you tell us about the special PS3 exclusive?

Halo?

Not likely but, since Bungie went kind of independent, we might get their next IP…

LOL! That would be a stab in the heart to the Xbox community.

That said, Halo is a good game, I'm sure it would be a welcome addition to the PS3 lineup.

ThePearlJamer

it would make sense because if they re polished Halo: Combat Evolved for the PS3, it would look amazing and Microsoft couldn't ***** because everyone that wanted to buy a copy for the ****box already has so it wouldn't disrupt sales or anything…besides, they keep stealing exclusivity from us…it's only fair

I don't even want halo but I feel that the ps3 should have it just to spite them for getting metal gear. (yeah yeah one is second dev and another is third dev whatever)

BigBoss4ever

if it is Halo, then the whole 360 world will lost half ground; also 2 years down the line, Gears of War moves to the PS3 too, then I can see the 360 world will collapse, cuz they have nothing left. but ofcourse, this is my assumptions. lol I actually enjoy some 360 games, i.e. Lost Odyssey, Infinite U, DOA4 etc.

Agreed. I never got all the hoopla over Halo. How many more Halo titles can M$ really put out? It's seems every E3. Halo, Halo, Halo and more Halo.

For the record: Bungie may be independent, but MS own Halo.

I think Mass Effect and Star Ocean 4 are good guesses.

Its only fair that the PS3 gets a new game since the Xbox community is getting Metal Gear Solid. Hopefully the game that the PS3 is getting from Xbox is just as good as the MGS franchise. The new game will probably be from a series that was available on Xbox.

I can't think of anything on the xbox that's as good as MGS.

I really hope that it is splinter cell conviction, I hate when good titles go to crappy system, lol it would be even nicer if Sony bought the rights to HALO 😛 but that'll never happen, but gears does seem a possability, so does mass affect 2 or alan wake

Yeah, Im thinking its Mass Effect 2. Didnt Bioware just say that they are loving the challenge of developing on the PS3? Theres my analysis.

Evil Incarnate

They make it sound like the title has already been released on the Xbox. My guess Dead Rising, since Dead Rising 2 is coming to the PS3 it would make sense.

Speak for yourself. Id gladly pay for dead rising off the PSN store. but i think it will be mass effect or some other game I have no interest in.

Its only a matter of time until all studios that aren't owned buy Sony or MS become multi-platform.

The enhanced version of 1, along with the announcement of same-day release of 2!

Damn I would sooo love it to be Allan Wake.
That is the only game coming to the Xbox360 that has me tempted… But then again my PC can handle it and its most likely going to look better on it anyways and most likely cheaper…
SC:Conviction form the videos I saw is kind of a big disappointment, I loved the series when it was all about stealth and now after Double Agent and Conviction, the series keeps getting further and further away from its root.
Also the graphics look underwhelming but that might be just because I'm spoiled with KZ2 and U2:AT 🙂

thank you, I thought I was the only one who took a look at the E3 footage and thought "Well that just doesn't look very polished at all, where's the bleedin detail?"

My guess is either Dead Rising or one of the downloadable games. Braid and Geometry Wars have both been rumored to be getting PSN additions in the past.

The ONLY "exclusive" MS has that I would like to see on the PS3 is Mass Effect.

Everything else, can stay put.

Fable would be welcome….

You know, a thought just struck me after reading your post. How wild and crazy would it be if Microsoft stunned the gaming world by developing a PS3 title? Seriously, Sony develops games for PC, so why not?

How much could Microsoft stand to make from Halo3 on PS3? Or any of the other big '1st party' exclusive 360 titles? Just a thought…

Sorry Highlander but I'll play KZ2 until I am blue in the face before I buy Halo on the PS3. There are plenty of shooter out there that put the Halo to shame.

My guess is Gears 3. Epic already has UT3 running beautifully on the PS3.
