OPM UK Rumors Abound

Okay, everyone, it's that time again: time to play "truth or bogus." The latest batch of rumors has arrived courtesy of OPM UK, and there are plenty of interesting topics to consider.

First of all, you may remember that a number of projects became casualties of business war when publisher Vivendi went under, and one of them was Tim Schafer's Brutal Legend. Well, now the rumor is that EA has decided to pick up the publishing duties for the game, which isn't implausible. Next up is that the upcoming PS3 firmware update 2.5 will indeed feature the screen-grabbing function everyone has been talking about lately. Third on the list is the resurrection of the Crysis on PS3 rumor; this time, OPM UK says it's most certainly coming, and with all kinds of extra goodies. You know, kinda like a Bioshock deal. As for the rest, we hear that the Rockstar team responsible for the PSP version of The Warriors is working on Max Payne 3, Pandemic's Batman game is officially canceled, and the next Dead Rising will be delivered as episodic content. Of course, PS3 owners are hoping this content comes to the PlayStation Network as well as the Xbox Live Marketplace, but no word on that just yet.

There's a bunch of stuff here, so take from this what you will. In all honesty, a lot of this sounds very possible, and in fact, a few could be proven true within the next month or so. It'd be great to know that Brutal Legend has a home once again!

You're right. Crysis port at 30fps and low-res textures would still be a treat, but Resistance 2 is looking better than that, and seeing "Crysis Sigma" in the next generation would be belated but worthwhile.

Dude...Crysis! What I would do for a gem like that on OUR systems. No one, Im sure, believes its outta the reach of the ps3. Besides, seems pretty logical. With pirating and all ruining PC gaming why not port over to a system that hasn't screwed you like Windows.

The screen cap will be great. Helps with the bragging rights as well as some comedy.

Screen grab would be awsome. I've always wanted to take snapshots on Oblivion...

I thought the big muckity mucks said Crysis was impossible on PS3? Needless to say I scoffed, "Scoff" I said. And I may have been right. I'm no fan of FPS, but Crysis along with R2 I can get behind.

Crysis on the PS3 seems like a total win.
