The prognosticator we’ve all come to know and tolerate, Michael Pachter, is at it again. In the latest edition of his ill-named “Pach-Attack” segment on Gametrailers.com, he answers the question on whether we will ever see any of the Xbox 360 exclusive titles ever jump over to the PS3. Give it a watch below.
Money, of course, is the driving factor behind most decisions of exclusivity. This generation has seen a lot of money change hands in the name of exclusivity, or the lack of it. Microsoft paid out 50 million to Rockstar to get some exclusive GTAIV DLC. The Gears of War and Mass Effect franchises have done very well for all parties involved due to being exclusive to the 360.
But, would CliffyB ever bring Marcus and the gang over to Sony’s black box? Personally, I think Gears of War 3 will remain exclusive to the Xbox 360. It makes sense to finish the trilogy where it started. Meanwhile, Bulletstorm is confirmed to be on the Xbox and PlayStation. Let’s not forget that Epic also showed the PS3 love with Unreal Tournament III, so we know they aren’t married to Steve Ballmer.
Personally, I would like to see Epic do something like the God of War Collection and throw the first two Gears titles on a blu-ray disc for the PS3. That’s the only way I see them bringing the horde to the PlayStation.
What do you think? If you only have a PS3, do you secretly wish you could chainsaw dudes in Gears?
