Rumor: Ace Combat 6 Winging Onto PS3?

Some flight fans were confused to learn that the latest installment in the revered Ace Combat franchise wouldn't be coming to a Sony platform. Every single prior entry had, but Ace Combat 6 is only exclusive to the Xbox 360. Why, we're not entirely sure, but Namco may be rectifying the situation shortly.

According to something N4G noticed in PSM3 magazine's latest feature, "2008: Year of the PS3," it seems very possible that AC6 will be making it's way to the PlayStation 3 at some point in the near future. Here's what the article said-

"Japan's favourite dogfighting series returns with a new made-up war, a brace of superweapons, online co-op and a custom controller for the superfans."

Well, if 2008 is indeed the "year of the PS3," it would certainly help if Ace Combat 6 got added to the system's growing library of must-have titles. There's no official word on this, of course, but it does seem very likely that Namco would be interested in giving the PS3 a series made popular on its predecessors. We'll keep an eye on this and see what happens.

I was so mad at Namco for making it a 360 exclusive, and I will still be mad even though they will try to get it on PS3. I say "tooo late", except if they include some extra exclusive content like a "360 SUX" special edition. In 2008, "Play B3yond"

Please phantom stop posting such fanboyish comments. It takes away from the respectability of the site and all sites that report primarily about one platform. Just because the site is all about playstation doesn't mean that all the site members have to hate the 360. Just stop hatin or at least keep it to yourself. Comment on the story not about how you hate the 360. I'm sure the whole community will be happy.

Now to follow my own advice ill talk about the story. Ace Combat is one of my favorite series in all of video games. I just love it. This was one of the only 360 exclusives that made me jealous.(The others being Gears, Bioshock, and Mass Effect.) I don't understand why the original exclusivity decision was made and I won't try to. I'm not happy about it but, late is always better than never for great games. Now just hurry it up Namco. :) Please.

Just for the record- I may be Editor-in-Chief of this site, but I also own a Xbox 360, and I'm happy I have it. I do prefer the PS3, but that would be the case even if I didn't have this job. My next game after DMC4 is done will probably be the 360's Lost Odyssey.

You won't be seeing any pro-Sony bias in our news reporting or reviews. We are a legitimate gaming site and will continue to be. Just wanted to clear that up. :)

Here's to hoping it comes out before the summer! (maybe)

Though I doubt we'll be seeing any iDolM@ster custom paint jobs. I hope they throw in some extra missions planes and to not make a mandatory HDD install.

@fathoms: Oh you didn't need to clear anything up for me. It's just a widespread opinion that sites of the same breed as psxextreme are very biased, and their readers and communities are mindless fanboys. I think you guys do a great job of avoiding this steriotype but certain members of the community are hurting those efforts. Thanks for the great site guys. Sorry if my comment came off as an attack on you guys.

I just read the quote a bit closer and I'm not a hundred percent sure this is Ace Combat 6, it probably is, but don't be surprised if this ends up being ace combat [insert generic subtitle such as "zero" or "x" here]. Just a new game in the series but not officially number 7.

Ehh, im probably just shouting nonsense, its very likely ac6 with a few extra missions.

I hope we don't see AC6 on the PS3 as it will end up being yet another terrible port. I want to see a ground up build of the next AC installment. Then I might consider buying it.

agreed... i would rather not have a port.

i love Ace Combat, but Namco made a huge error imo.

why bite the hand that feeds? if it wasnt for Playstation (as a brand) would the Ace Combat name be worth much these days? so why was the project canned very early on in its development? because i have a feeling it was meant to come out for the PS3, then suddenly it wasnt. Namco dont or have never shown problems in writing for the PS3, so why axe a game that will sell so many copies?

There are no other decent flying games like Ace Combat on the PS3, they would of raked it in, but now we have to choose between a decent game like Cod4 etc etc.. for Ace combat.

Where you cant help thinking that if they had released Ace Combat6 early on in the PS3 life, everyone would of brought it, because there wasnt 'that' much choice back then.

We seem to be spoilt for choice now, so considering that i would rather a game made for the PS3 rather than some port that i can afford to miss because of all the great titles that are out and coming out in 2008.

It seems as though Namco is tired of the PlayStation. I mean, why else would they can both AC6 and the new Katamari? At least we'll get Tekken 6 excluisivley, and we are getting Darth in our version of Soul Calibur. Or maybe, Namco will release the next one exclusivley for the PS3, as well as a new Katamari for PS3. They did the same thing with RR7. Of course, RR6 came out at launch for the 360 and RR7 was a launch for PS3.

K Phantom: If you were expecting "PlayStation Extremists," you came to the wrong place. We're all gamers, nothing more. We play games that are fun, regardless of what system they're on.

If it makes you feel any better, obviously, most everyone here does enjoy PlayStation products, including myself. We're just not about to dump on Microsoft or Nintendo because of that reason. You're always welcome to post, and you're certainly welcome to keep reading. I think we're just a little sensitive about being branded a "fanboy" site, that's all.

@Phantom: I don't want you to leave I just want you to bring a little more intelligence to the conversation. We all get tweaked when we read these types of things from the x-bots, so I just feel we should make a conscience effort to practice as we preach.

If I hurt your feelings I am sorry. All I wanted to do was make a fair criticism. I look back and I see that, that was not the way it reads at all. I hope you can see through my being an ass and take the advice to heart.
