    So 'Frontlines: Fuel of War' is cancelled for the PS3, 'God of War III' isn't expected now until X-Mas 2009, and 'Haze' has been pushed back to some unknown time late this year or even early next year.

    What a week (or should that be "weak") for the PS3! :oldrazz:

    I'll download the demo, but I think it looks pretty mediocre.

    This really doesn't look to be a big loss for the PS3. The real bad news for PS3 owners that are FPS fans is that they have to use the sixaxis to play them.

    yeah big loss. This game really wasnt on anyone's radar. UT3 and CoD4 are more than satisfying the FPS PS3 fan

    This game is probably crap and the publisher knows it's not worth porting to PS3. I mean, it's from THQ.

    dido... 'haze' going to the ps3 exclusively is more of a bummer than this going to the 360, and haze looks to suck more than a little.

    Here's me....not caring one bit. Good for THQ not wanting to release a shoddy product to the Playstation 3, and judging from how some people are acting here, good for the Playstation 3 for not getting what seems to be a s**tty game.

    Honestly, I'm not being biased here because Haze, I couldn't care less for being an exclusive etc, but this game looks as mediocre as Turok, Army of Two and Conflict: Denied OPS.

    Call of Duty 4 will beat this in every way possible.

    "Looks like today's not a very good news day for PS3 FPS fans, huh?"

    No, it was pretty the same day as any other day. And I spent a good deal of it playing Call of Duty 4, the best, and most played game on both systems. :)

    Publishers seem to think that everyone in the Xbox community is a real-life Duke Nukem and can't wait to blow away scum. That any FPS is a sure-fire success.

    This is Kaos Studios first game as a team. Some of the people there worked on F.E.A.R., Medal of Honor and Doom 3... the rest were from the BattleField mod community, so I'm really not expecting much.

    Anyway, the word on the PS3 cancellation is that the PS3 is too hard to program for to justify the sales outlook.

    Yeah, the game is not all that.
    I played the demo, didn´t liked it, so, there is no big loss to the PS3.
    Then again, many didn´t liked the Burnout Paradise demo, but love the game...

    On other news, also THQ related....
    Juiced and Stuntman were canned (reason: underperformance), the same goes to the PS2 version of Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy Unleashed (now, only for the PSP and Wii); alonside the closure of its Concrete Games studio.

    So not even the publisher is expecting this game to sell well. Yikes.
