Ubisoft has told GameSpot that First Radical’s sci-fi first-person shooter Haze is now being planned solely for Sony’s PlayStation 3 platform.
Originally, Haze was slated as a multiplatform release for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 this spring. However, in May, Ubisoft announced that the PS3 had become the "lead platform" for the title and that the game would be released in November for the PS3-only. At that time, Ubisoft noted that "no exclusivity for any platform has been officially announced."
Today, Ubisoft amended its statement, saying that currently only the PS3 version of Free Radical’s shooter is in development. The France-based publisher also noted that it was still leaving the door open in the future for "new partnerships," but currently the game is indeed only planned for the PS3. A spokesperson said, "The official statement on PC and Xbox 360 is that these platforms are not confirmed."
The Web sites of Free Radical and the official Haze site all now only list the PS3 version of the game.

Hmm, must say this would make me a bit sceptical about what the game is going to be like, if they started out developing it for multiple systems, and now have switched to PS3 only, especially when it’s trailing behind the 360 in sales. I wonder if there’s anything else behind the decision to be honest, were they running into trouble with development, or do they believe PS3 sales are going to pick up?

ps3 sales will pick up well I hope I have both consoles.

To be honest ever since Obi Wan and the trouble it had with its multi format release I’ve always been skeptical of these kinds of moves. While Haze is indeed looking rather nice it’s definitely one I’d wait for reviews for.

They said something like that, but that’s not entirely correct. They showed 2 more levels just to try and show what they are trying to achieve, and they just happened to look a bit shitty. Apparently they wanted to show something other then that jungle level that everyone has seen a million times. Plus they were relatively old builds compared to where they are now in it.
And if they can get those levels looking like that jungle level it will look great.
I heard it’s a timed exclusive too,
I can see these becoming hella common………bioshock

"I promise you, there is no secret plan about the PS3 that we’re keeping from people. There’s no PS3 development going on that we’re hiding. There’s lots of stuff that gets into game code, plans change over time and we got an exclusive deal with Microsoft … that’s not a Rosetta Stone discovery."[/quote:5b693ec670]
Sounds pretty conclusive for me…
