Thread: Sony Caught Lying!!!!

  1. #1

    Default Sony Caught Lying!!!!

    One of the biggest surprises at Sony's pre-E3 conference was when the hotly awaited Soul Calibur 2 appeared in a list of bullet points of games exclusive to the PlayStation 2 in 2002. Speculation afterward covered a number of possibilities, from the game being a PS2 exclusive only during the year 2002 with 2003 releases on other systems to secret Namco plans no one knew about.

    After speaking with Namco representatives, we've learned that all of these scenarios are false and that the correct explanation is the simplest one: Sony goofed. Soul Calibur 2 is still scheduled for a simultaneous release on Xbox, GameCube, and PS2. But it won't be this year--Namco reps say not to expect the game until 2003.

    As to just what Sony was trying to say during their presentation, odds are they had Soul Calibur 2 confused with that other Namco 3D fighter. Tekken 4 is indeed exclusive to PS2 and is also coming out this year. So, mystery solved. (More or less.)

    This is pretty old news, I think everyone heard about this when E3 was still going on.

    Sony, Microsoft, and especially Nintendo, always lie about stuff. This is also a rather small, little, white lie. No biggie. Fighters suck anyway, so who cares?

    This is sort of related. gamers.com has their top 10 picks of E3 on their main page, and they list soul caliber 2 as a PS2 game. (next to all of the top ten games they have what system it will be on). They mention way down at the bottom that it will also come to the other consoles. So why list it as a PS2 and not 'ALL'? Because gamers.com is another website full of fanboys. You can look at their list of top 10 trailers as well, and they list ricky carmichale mx as a ps2 game even though its on the xbox as well. they should rename to lamers.com.
