GameStop Claims Oblivion Coming to PS3 in November
Jul 21, 2006 @ 4:24pm

Summary:
A new product page listing on GameStop.com shows an entry for the hit Xbox 360 and PC RPG The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Full Text:
Coming to a PS3 near you this November?

The mysterious PS3 Oblivion page lists a release date of November 6, 2006.

Aside from a mocked-up box image and a price of $59.99, the page lists virtually no other details. There's a generic list of game features, but nothing to differentiate it from the original Xbox 360 and PC versions.

We've put the call out to Bethesda developer and co-publisher Bethesda Softworks -- stay tuned for the official response.

*sigh* and becuse of the extra development time it might look a bit better than the 360 version and i bet people will hold it up as an example of how 'superior' the PS3 is to the 360.

It may look better not because the PS3 is superior but because of longer development time. However, the only thing gamers are going to notice is that the PS3 is 600 dollars and the 360 is 400 dollars, and I think gamers will go with the 360 in the end.

The xbox 1 was superior to the PS2 in every way, but people still bought the PS2 despite that. The price of the PS3 will be a big problem for it, even if it gets oblivion.

That said, I dont think Oblivion is coming to the PS3. Until Bethesda says it, i wont believe it.

This is most likely fake, but if it was, dev time wont matter, because porting it to the ps3 would be hell.

QFT.

And, people both machines are equal. But, 360 does have 64 more MB of ram to work with. The game won't have better graphcs.

Some logic you have. Even without image quality improvements--which is what we're really talking about here--AF--any improvement in framerate would certainly count in my opinion as an improvement in graphics..which, is completely within the realm of reason.

Will it happen?

Beats me..but it's downright naive to think that it's impossible. I'd hate to see MS lose a powerful "exclusive" though--until we see Mass Effect hit it's the keystone to the X360's rpg lineup.

Call me bitter (partly because I am) but MS exclusives are starting to look like Capcom's "platform exclusives". Whatever we get that's cool, the PC gets down the line anyway, with better graphics of course. It's like we get the shoddy, stuttering preview of the game that'll be fully realised on PC anyway.

Thing is, with MS being equally nice to PC and the 360 as platforms, it feels like we have no real first party exclusives either. Being a multiplatform gamer, I don't *really* care, because I just grab the best version of stuff regardless, but I do have sort of an Xbox heart beating inside of me (surrogate Sega mother) and I loved it back in Xbox 1 days when we got stuff like Brute Force and Amped that felt decidedly Xbox gamey.

With MS emphasising how important it is with exclusives this generation I'm baffled at the lack of in house stuff.

Because when we have Oblivion to keep as "our own" this is exactly the kind of disappointment we're set up for, because as the PS3 breezes past the competition (again, bitter) stuff will gravitate towards it once more and we'll be standing here with our stuttering previews of things that'll be fully realised elsewhere. :(
