First announced to release on Xbox 360 and PC, sci-fi thriller XCOM will finally get a PS3 release as well on March 6 in North America and three days later in Europe. Trailer and more details about the game inside.
2K Games’ Sci-Fi Thriller, XCOM®, Set to Invade Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 System and Windows PC March 2012
2K Games announced today that XCOM®, the intense sci-fi thriller in development at its 2K Marin studio, will be coming to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC on March 6, 2012 in North America and March 9, 2012 internationally. XCOM is a gripping tactical action experience set in mid-century America, where the player leads an elite field team of specialized government agents into battle – combining deep, visceral gunplay with powerful sci-fi abilities. Together, they face a vicious and otherworldly enemy, who conspires to shatter our world and rebuild it in their own image.
“Every time I think of XCOM it gives me the chills, the kind that come from standing witness to the corruption and destruction of your world as you stand powerless to prevent it,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “I’m pleased to announce today that we will be bringing this experience to an even broader audience when XCOM comes to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in March 2012.”
Featuring a bold new origin story told from a first-person perspective, XCOM pits Special Agent William Carter and his veteran team against the threat of human extinction. But every enemy is an opportunity – players will strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology, and by the science of desperation – turn the invaders’ weapons against them. Armed with these lethal new tools of war, players will command their squad on XCOM’s front lines: Main Street, USA.

@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (1 Hour ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (1 Hour ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (2 Hours ago)
It’s gameplay is objectively worse. As are it’s quests, narrative and lore. Skyrim was shit. (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: ones broken, one isn’t. That’s all there really is to it. For all your whining about shit combat in Witcher, i don’t really see how you could possibly give elders scrolls a pass? (2 Hours ago)
"The updated GameWorks SDK, coming soon, includes ray-traced area shadows and ray-traced glossy reflections.". and this is what they say will be in a game this year. Not full, pure, 100% raytracer. (3 Hours ago)
