Tecmo Takes PS3 Exclusivity Away From Quantum Theory

All this time, we have known Tecmo's ambitious action project, Quantum Theory, to be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. This is one of the reasons why it has been compared to the Xbox 360 exclusive, Gears of War.

Of course, the other reason for those comparisons is that Tecmo's game looks a lot like Epic's excellent franchise. But the exclusivity point is no longer relevant, as according to GamingUnion, Quantum Theory will also be available on the 360 in North America and Europe. To many, it appears as if Team Tachyon is making a GeoW clone; any media we've seen thus far certainly seems incriminating in regards to this particular accusation. But at the same time, everyone borrows from from everyone these days and you will recall that EA was actually flattered by the idea that Dante's Inferno was extremely similar to God of War. "Go with what works," they say. But obviously, for PS3 fans and Sony, the big news is that the game in question is no longer exclusive, so the project must be stacked atop the many other third-party titles that began their lives as one-platform-only games and ended up going multiplatform. As we've been saying, there's just very little chance that you'll see many third-party exclusive titles these days; publishers need the extra income potential due to the immense cost of producing a next-gen experience.

Quantum Theory is scheduled to hit store shelves some time next Spring and we'll be interested to learn more about this situation. Was the game initially a PS3 exclusive and then they decided to make a port for the 360? If this is the case, it's more than likely that it'll be best played on Sony's machine; just like Bayonetta is best played on the 360 because development began with Microsoft's hardware and Sega had to port the game to the PS3. Well, we'll have to wait and see.

The game has been in development on PS3 for the Japanese market for quite a long time. I do not see the developers gimping the international version simply because of port to the 360.

Not that I really care anyway, since I'd much rather play Gears 2.

Every time I saw the name for this game it made me think of that terrible (just my opinion) Bond movie, so I gave looking into it a pass until it came out. Not a good reason, I know, but I hate the thought of that movie. I'll play it, but I'm not looking forward to it or anything.

hmm this is bad because this the direct oponnent for GeoW .

still I don't care too much about shooters so in the end I wouldn't buy it but if the game ends outclasing GeoW and remains only for the PS3 would be great for the Ps3 sales.

so this really are bad news.

I don't think MS influence Tecmo's decision(this time).They probably saw that the PS3 community weren't rallying around Quantum Theory(can you blame them/us)like they were to Heavy Rain and the rest of the other "original" exclusives; Or it could simply be that they just want more green in their pockets.

Multiplatform games sucks, even with the PS3 as lead platform. They say it doesn't affect the PS3 experience, but it does. In the back of their minds when they developed the PS3 version, they will be like "i better not make the game too big or it won't fit on a DVD." or "Let's not use too much PS3 power or Xbox version won't be possible". There are just too many BS in the industry after MGS4.

I was looking forward to this game honestly. The changing terrains and fast action.

This is a bunch of BS. Tecmo originally chose the exclusivity because they said the platform is the most powerful. You guys remember that interview right? Now all of a sudden the power doesn't matter?

We all know by now that exclusive PS3 games is impossible on other platforms. The fact that it "CAN" be multiplatform, makes it that much less interesting.

Another game going to be dumbed down due to the inferior DVD.

Why can't they just make a superior game on the PS3 for once?
With bluray it's more than easy over DVD.

If Hideo Kojima were to make a multiplat, the PS3 version will be 3 times better no doubt.

he may not be directing it, but he will influence it quite a bit.
MGS is his baby, theres no way hes going to give it to his team and not look over it.
no one would turn there back on their creation.
well at least no one but naughty dog.
im still holding a grudge against them, the way they cast crash bandicoot away like a stone.
weve used you enough now, cya later.
i would give anything, i mean ANYTHING to see ND go back and create another crash bandicoot game.
crash bandicoot 1 is my favorite game of all time.
if i was only allowed to play one game for the rest of my life it would be that.

There's no way to lock the exclusive rights. Look at Final Fantasy XIII, RE5, Street Fighter 4. These are all huge games where its popular around the world. If they couldn't keep these big titles exclusive, I doubt they can for a Westernize TPS, new IP too. In a way... I guess you can't blame Tecmo really.

They could if they tried. 3rd party exclusives don't have to be a thing of the past. Sony hasn't done much this gen to secure 3rd party exclusives. Understandebly. They have been doing what Nintendo has been doing, focusing on a rock solid 1st party line up. Even trade I suppose. Although FFXIII going multiplat still irks me.

@Jawkee,

I don't mean it's not possible, give the developer 20 million bucks, and you get to do whatever you want with the game. It's just not realistic to do so i mean. Look at MS, hogging all the timed exclusives of JRPG, where the sales of those huge titles are just plain pathetic. There is no profit after spending 20 million dollars.

Sony doesn't keep the exclusive because they are trying to make profit like every normal business. They will NEVER claim the exclusivity, unless they see a profit from taking such action.

How can anyone of us here blame Tecmo, when no almost no one here (especially a PS3 site) is even supporting the game Quantum Theory. They can't see any potential large sales, and they have to go multi. It's just shocking to see.

By the way I just noticed this game is coming out in the spring time, the same spring where my ps3 will be playing god of war 3, and alien vs preditor. My DS will also be stealing some time from my ps3 come April so even if this game were exclusive, chances are I wouldn't buy this till July or august.

GAME SUX!

not original and a total rip of gears (which is fine, but cmon do it better than gears if u have to)

Story sux so far, from what i can see from the trailers. (totally unappealing)

oh and 1 more thing, y is it these asian action games the art always looks the same. the spikey hair, some wierd ass chick running around with crazy retarded moves.

the architecture, weapons and armor, pretty much spikes everywhere and looks the same.

now to just keep an eye out for a gun blade... LOL J/K

but seriously, you know when u see a game in development and know ahead of time that its gonna fail? (Damnation, Hellgate London and Too human, we're looking at you) well this is one of those titles.

was never a purchase and never will be.

this is the first time ive heard about this game in months lol. imo, i think temco made a mistake with this move. not only could this possibly be watered-down on both platforms, it HAD a chance on becoming the ps3s answer to gears of war, despite the shortcomings. ive read comments on other posts and apprently xbox fans dont want it. they say that theyd "rather stick with the orginial". since some ps3 fans are unfortunely jaded enough to only buy exclusives (seriously guys? there are good multiplats out there), temco just lost that fraction of the ps3 fanbase. multiplat games do earn more revenue, but seeing the situation with this game (such as a "better lookalike"), i doubt itll be as lucky as ff xiii, tekken 6, dmc4, or any other former ps3 exclusive.

360 owners won't buy into it cos they already got Gears. Its just a waste of time and money.

Had it stayed PS3 exclusive, might have been better, but who knows? It was meant to be Gears for the PS3.

The people have spoken. Quantum is the ginger kid of the Swedish blonde PS3 family.

I agree with Jawknee,

Just because a game is multiplatform doesn't make it a failure. Examples-(AC2, MW2, DS, SF4, SWTFU). I can keep going but hopefully the blind fanboys in denial will understand that exclusives aren't the only good games out there. For those of you who are fanboys I suggest not picking up FF13 because it will be a stinking pile of multiplat sh**.

Otherwise, feel free to pick FF13 up because honestly, I think it will most likely be the best RPG...if not game of the year.

I bought a 360 for Gears. If you want to play Gears, either get the PC version or buy a 360 arcade and a preowned copy of Gears 2.

Substitutes never work out. Plus, Uncharted 2 is better than Gears according to Metacritic, and the duck and cover system is about the same.

MS can have its Gears, its Halo and its Fable (along with its crappy Eyetoy ripoff). PS3 has got GT5, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Infamous, Littlebig Planet, Motorstorm, Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2. It's even got its own awesome version of Mario Kart coming out (Modnation Racers anyone?) which I believe will be awesome if advertised.

With that in mind, Quantum is no big loss.

As I said to Ben in an email, I wonder how many potential sales are impacted on the PS3 side, when a company announces the loss of exclusivity like this. I mean, and I know I'm an exception to the rule haha, but, yeah, multi-platform PS3 games are of no interest to me (Have a PC for that). So, I wonder if there's any imperical evidence that can be garnered on this subject.

Make the 360 owners wait a year for their port. But somehow that wouldn't be "fair" but it's perfectly acceptable the other way around?
