Apparently three new Xbox 360 titles were just added to BlockBuster’s database and they’re rather interesting ones too. We just got three juicy cellphone pics of what appears to be BlockBuster’s register computer, showing off three titles that were previously exclusive to other platforms. According to BlockBuster’s database we’ll see ‘Beautiful Katamari’, ‘Warhammer: Mark of Chaos’ and ‘Ace Combat 6′ on the Xbox 360 sometime in the future.

Ace Combat 6 over Xbox Live would freaking rock. I just hope Namco has put alot of effort into Ace Combat 6, unlike Ace Combat Zero which was kinda disappointing. AC4 and AC5 totally kicked ass :D :D

Sounds good to me, I enjoyed AC4 but I never really played the next ones since they seemed like more of the same without any multiplayer. It would be nice to finally have online multiplayer in an Ace Combat game (AC5 was supposed to have it, but apparantly the feature got axed).

AC for the PSP is great, the online play is fun. I hope the game has coop... the series screams it.

It could just be a mistake. I hope it isn't, though. I love the ace combat series. I've played every ace game that was released excluding the psp game and I really don't feel like getting a ps3 to continue playing the series.

It's a good move by Namco if it is true.

As of today my fanboyism is over. Ace Combat is the one game I go where it goes so no matter the system. Sorry Sony.:(

And this is great ****ing news. I love AC like it was my damn child.

that's ok, same here man! I've been playing the series since Air Combat hit arcades in 1993.

I am SO hoping that Namco does for Ace Combat 6 what they did for the PS2 version of Tekken 5. That is, include both arcade Air Combat and arcade Air Combat 22.
With PS2 Tekken 5, Namco included the arcade versions of T1, T2, T3.





Namco (and perhaps NEC, Videologic, who knows) cheated us out of a PC version of
Air Combat 22 on PowerVR series 1 along with Rave Racer back in 1996/1997. The games were announced (http://www.videologic.com/Releases/Release.asp?ID=118), used to hype PowerVR, then never showed up, never officially mentioned again.

that said, I hope Ace Combat 6 itself turns out to be stellar as well as proof Namco can make good use out of modern, current-gen consoles.

I expect this title to hit both the 360 and the PS3. The problem faced by PS3 only titles right now is simply the lack of market share, thus forcing many traditionally Sony only titles to do cross platform releases. A developer may love the consoles from one company to death, but unless Sony is bankrolling you, you need to pay the bills somehow.

Ace Combat Set for 360
Another series switches sides.
by IGN Staff

March 20, 2007 - As if yesterday's news of Devil May Cry's defection from the Sony exclusivity camp didn't put enough mega in the ton, word has reached us of another big PlayStation franchise that's making its way to the 360. This week's Famitsu is home to first details and screens for Ace Combat 6. That's right, following Ridge Racer 6's 360 debut back in 2005, Bandai Namco has decided to bring another "6" to the 360. Will Tekken be next?

The full name of this latest entry in Japan's most popular console flight game is Ace Combat 6: Kaiho e no Senbi. Ace Combat 04 director Hiroyuki Ichiyanagi is serving as the game's producer, with Ace Combat 04 planner and Ace Combat 5 main planner Natsuki Isaki taking on directorial responsibilities.

Outside of the obvious improvement in visual quality that one would expect from the jump into the next generation, Ace Combat 6 will feature a few new gameplay systems. The biggest new inclusion appears to be the Dynamic Mission system, which allows for dynamically changing, large scale battles. During missions, you fight alongside a number of ally pilots and squads whom you can send them off to perform separate tasks. Success in some of these mini-missions may be required in order to clear a stage, but this isn't always the case. As you clear tasks, new ones will present themselves, expanding the battle in new ways. The game supports up to six tasks simultaneously.

Also on tap for Ace Combat 6 are some options for the beginner pilots out there. The game includes options for a simplified control scheme, as well as settings that keep you flying even if you manage to crash your plane into the ground.

Xbox Live support will also play a big part in the game -- not surprising, considering how great the online play in Ridge Racer 6 turned out. We can look forward to online battle royal and team battle. Or, if everyone is feeling friendly, a cooperative play option lets all human players group together to take on a powerful enemy force. We don't have specifics just yet on how many players the game will support simultaneously.

Bandai Namco is also including a ranking mode, and even has plans for downloads. The downloads will actually be kicking off well before the game's release. On Friday, the marketplace will take delivery of themes and icons, which we'd suggest you download immediately to show off your excitement of more "6" games coming to the Xbox 360.

Ace Combat 6 hits the Japanese Xbox 360 later this year. There's no word in Famitsu on a PS3 version, so for now, we're going to assume this is a 360 exclusive.
