Quantum Theory no longer PS3 exclusive

Monday, 7th December 2009 16:54 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Tecmo’s Quantum Theory will release on 360 as well as PS3, the publisher’s told Joystiq.

The new version will release next spring, in the same window as its sibling.

In case you’d forgotten, Quantum Theory really, really looks like Gears of War. Accept it’s made in Japan.

More through there.

    i bet “we’ve got that 3rd party game too” Microsoft will make sure everyone knows this at the next E3

    If they do it really will be scraping the barrel.
    I mean, are there actually any 360 owners out there desperate to get their hands on this?

    Not really. I still remember the collective 360 sigh when Sony bought Haze, then the collective lol when Haze came out.

    Haze didn’t do anything for me when it was announced anyway.
    I greet all FPS games with the apathy I feel they deserve.

    I have a guy at work who thinks that a game isn’t a ‘proper’ game unless it’s an FPS.
    So, I shot him.

    I wonder why they went from Timesplitters to Haze?
    It’s decisions like that, that can lead to companies going bust.

    Any game that can end a game with the villan saying the line “just one thing, please don’t tell my mom” on his deathbed deserves 10 out of 10!

    Haze was no worse than most shooters out there IMO, it just had a hard time because Sony put it on a pedastool and at the time everyone in the press was gunning for Sony.

    Know nothing about this game, but hearing Gears of War means I’ll keep it on my radar. :)

    I’d already accepted it’s made in Japan, to be honest.


    Not to Japan, obviously, I can’t afford that. Oh god this awful joke has turned into so much more than I wanted it to.

    Nothing to see here. As you were.

    I completely forgot about this game.

    Only the faniest of fanboys will bemoan this loss of exclusivity.

    Even the whinge bag PS3 fanboys over on the GT forums denounced this as a ‘Gears of War clone’.

    I have no idea what your going on about… but if it’s a sly way of saying ‘Most Japanese developers are behind the times and unadventurous’… THEN COUNT ME IN!

    Why do people bring my name up all of a sudden? Oh I see Garratt tried to turn this into a flame war with that headline. News getting pretty thin eh Garratt. this is old, as in 3 months old.

    Mike who are you talking about? You think anyone from both sides care about this chessy rip off of Gears. Now if it said UC2 (a game that shits on Gears and any other 360 game) was coming to Xbox then it would be news. :D

    I think if Tea wanted to play gears he, um, might actualy play Gears. He owns the xb360, its there. Pretty funny really to think that ps3 fans would play gears if they only could. He owns that system, he doesn’t like that game. I don’t know if he will like this one or not, but just because it is getting compared to gears doesn’t mean Tea will be all over it. I own a PS3, and don’t like U2, and wouldn’t play a U2 clone if it were on the xbox360 either. the whole thing is silly.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of complement.

    I accept it’s made in Japan.

    Pat, I think you drink too much coffee.

    Oh, and when do we get an ignore button. TEA’s posts are useless, apart from the occasional comedy value, but mostly they are useless, tiresome, and often long, which make the comments that much harder to read.

    Umm Mike I own Gears 1 and 2. I could prove it but you refused to accept my friends invite on live.

    I guess die hard XBOTS won’t accept things like that, like a racist won’t accept a black president :(

    I can’t imagine there will be many 360 owners a-whoopin’ and a-hollerin’ about this particular announcement. It really didn’t look much cop at TGS.
