More bad news for PS3....


Recommended Posts

THQ postponing series' PS3 "debut" until next winter.

(AKA "Smackdown vs RAW 08")

Here's a curveball for you. THQ confirmed to 1UP this morning that WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2007, originally scheduled for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and PSP this November, has been cancelled for Sony's next-generation machine.

"Consistent with our goal of delivering the highest quality content across all next-gen platforms, we have decided to postpone the debut of the Smackdown series on PlayStation 3 until the holiday 2007 timeframe," the company said in a brief statement.

Of course, we can always speculate about the reasoning -- developers have certainly whispered about how programming on PlayStation 3 isn't as easy as Xbox 360, and depending on when THQ received their PlayStation 3 development kids, finishing a port before the holiday season may not have been a feasible option for the company. Unfortunately for gossipers, THQ is keeping quiet.

The point isn't that Whatever Wrestling Game 2007 isn't being ported... It's that developers are overlooking PS3 in favor of the other systems.

Which is, you know, bad for Sony.

Right now they're playing on the strength of a few must-have games (such as MGS4).
