Mirror's Edge A Timed PS3 Exclusive? EA Says No

Sometimes, the lines get crossed in the world of video game journalism, and it can get especially confusing when a supposedly official source "confirms" something that is, in all actuality, false.

The big rumor circulating throughout the Internet centered on DICE/EA's very promising and unique project, Mirror's Edge. Evidently, several sources have reported that SCEE president David Reeves said the game would be a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 3, which may be considered logical if DICE is indeed using the PS3 as the lead platform in their design proceedings. However, either Reeves was just plain wrong or somebody misinterpreted one of his comments, because EA was good enough to clear this up for us: according to the PR manager for the game, Peter Nguyen, the potentially innovative title will ship "this winter on PS3, X360, and PC." He goes on to say that "Mirror's Edge will not be a timed exclusive for PS3." Can't get any clearer than that, folks.

This is the second time we've had to go to EA asking for rumor clarification concerning this game; the first one came from a typo in a preview that stated Mirror's Edge was coming at the end of June 2008. Yeah, obviously that was never true, but again, it was a rumor that certainly got around the Internet, and we're in the business of stating fact. Well, whenever possible, anyway.

I really don't care that the rumor was false. I hope we have another hit added to the PS3 library.

I think all of the EA hate will die down eventually, as long as DICE is making great games

Why am I more attracted to first party games? Why don't I care for these multi platforms anymore? It must have something to do with using the ps3 more efficiently, utilizing the space and power etc.. Thats it. Yeah.

i dont think third party games eat more/less power than the first party.
ps3 is still in-efficient because its RSX.

after all go 60nm or 45nm the power efficiency will increase

sooner or later people will realize that "exclusives" are only timed and eventually none at all except for the in house developers. Atleast i'm hearing less bitching and moaning about exclusives here and more thoughtful comments and replies :)

Not to play devil's advocate here, but what would happen if a lead PS3 game was still better on the 360 thanks to EA?????

How the hell did DICE make Mirrors Edge and Battlefield Bad Company at the same time?

AscientDire, I hope not but it is possible. I look forward to seeing what happens.

I will be preordering for the PS3 regardless though my 360 has had a bit of a dusting recently.
