(RUMOR) - Doom 3 a Xbox exclusive?

THERE’S A NASTY FRIGHT circulating on the wibble wide web at the moment. Game players around the world are trembling. The rumour is that Microsoft is trying to persuade id to make Doom III an Xbox exclusive. But it may all just be another April 1 joke surfacing late. It all started with the print issue of Wired or so some have been led to believe. We haven’t seen the issue in question so we can only report on what people who have a friend whose cousin saw it on the newstands are saying. The copy of Wired in question is, of course, the April issue. The article is nowhere to be seen on its site even though most of the main articles are there. Where does that leave it? It’s certainly not unknown for console manufacturers to go after exclusives. It seems hugely doubtful that id would even consider dropping the PC version and Microsoft will be quite happy for the game to help push a new generation of technology forward on the Windows platform. Consoles are a different matter. There can be no doubt that getting an exclusive on Doom III would be an amazing PR coup for any company. It would cost a fortune to do, a quick bit of guesstimation and we suspect that you’d be talking at least a $100million to persuade id to leave the Playstation 2 out of the running. That’s one heck of a big chunk of the PR budget to throw at it. Is there any truth in the rumours? With something like this it’s difficult to tell. If it’s an April 1 story, it’s a good’un. If it’s not, expect it to be plastered all over the web within the next day or so.
