Katamari on 360 was cancelled for PS3. Same with Saints Row. I don't think Microsoft paid for those. I can't find anything about Sony buying Haze. I never said Sony got gifted. Free Radical (or Ubisoft) probably just wanted to get a version of the game out and get a return on their investment, but after it flopped, it wasn't worth it to port it. Why wouldn't Jack just say Haze would only be on PS3 for it's lifetime? When you say "first," it implies that it's planned for other platforms in the future. Something has to come after, for something to be first.
-You know after Free Radical closed and Crytek about them they openly said that the PS3's architecture is what in the game, and as a result, the entire company.. So the you want people to believe that the PS3, which was by far the hardest to code for, was further ahead.
-And It makes no sense to claim the PS3 was further along for, then claim other studios cancelled PS3 games (not true btw, many instances a PS3 version was never in development), but claim the one studio and pub decide to pull this move for free.
You do know that when you do a timed exclusivity deal like that, you are explicitly warned buy the other console maker than when the port comes around, they won't co-promote the game with you. That how they keep companies honest. And your entire "had a great relationship" "probably was lead on PS3" theory breaks down if you look at the UT3 situation
The 360 gaming portfolio was far, faaaaaaaaar better than the PS3 in 2007. Even if you give all those game that were 360 only because the 360 version got cancelled or never was in development. The 360 still whoops the PS3 2007. And that was with Alan Wake, Splinter Cell, Too Human and Wolfenstein missing the year
