I don't know why but I'm really looking forward to this game.

Unlike Rainbow Six Vegas, another Ubisoft title with four-player co-operative play, the co-op in Haze doesn't feel like a tacked-on afterthought. According to Derek Littlewood, Team Leader at Free Radical, co-op was always planned for Haze. "Four player online co-op has been part of HAZE since the very start of development. In fact, it was one of the very first features we decided on, as everyone at Free Radical believes co-op play is just great fun."

When we first saw the game running at the show, a lone demo-guy was blitzing through a jungle level in singleplayer mode. We hadn't yet heard that the game was co-op, and thought that the other three PS3s in the corner were simply additional demo stations. It turns out that all four PS3s were networked, as we saw when three other players joined the fray, mid-level. Like Gears, Haze allows players to drop into and out of the game whenever they feel like it. As Derek explained, "We have a dynamic drop-in/drop-out system that allows additional co-op players to join mid-game rather than needing to return back to a menu to select a different mode. This makes the co-op game in HAZE very easy to pick up and play."

It sounds like a great game and the screenshots look good. I hope they provide a demo so I can check it out. A game like this needs to go above and beyond before I'll buy it though since I struggle so much with controlling them (yeah, still a console newbie unfortunately).

Perhaps because these are the same guys who made Goldeneye and TimeSplitters?:)

Man, I hope the rumor of it being timed Exclusive for the PS3 pulls true, hehe.

BTW It's official website has removed all other consoles logos now, it only has the PS3 logo and only the PS3 version is showing up for preorder on the store.

I believe it's a timed exclusive. I remember reading that in an interview somewhere.

I don't know what to get, PS3 or wait for PC or X360. PC tend to have better graphics but probably will face more bugs.

AFAIK its coming to PC, and running OpenGL.
Thus being one of the first games that can utilize some of the DX10 hardware functionality on XP.

Haze will be rated M, if only for language http://www.gamesradar.com/gb/ps3/game/news/article.jsp?releaseId=20070601111949703050&articleId=20070601111949703050&sectionId=1006

Eh, maybe a timed exclusive for PS3. Probably due to Halo 3 being out around the same time.

uh oh, look like Haze is no longer a exclusive for the PS3.. Ubisoft let leak that it is coming for the 360 and PC, and now are covering it. http://www.joystiq.com/2007/06/19/ubisoft-dates-haze-splinter-cell-raving-rabbids-2-more/

Actually they retracted that...

http://kotaku.com/gaming/hazey/haze-confusion-abounds-270530.php

Officially HAZE is a PS3 lead development, PC and 360 versions are not confirmed at this time. There was an error in a release schedule which went out which is causing a lot of confusion right now.


We know the PC and X360 version are coming but PS3 probably has a timed exclusive for it.

It says on the page I linked that they retracted that, however it really makes you wonder how long of a timed exclusive will it be?

OMG Sony bought themselves a exclusive! http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6177964.html?action=convert&om_clk=latestnews&tag=latestnews;title;1

Well thats the game they have been playing for awhile now. It dropped off the lists for the other systems before E3 with them saying they were only focusing on the PS3 version. I don't think it will be exclusive, there was too much talk with the developers mentioning the other versions releasing next year.

Your right, it could simply be a marketing ploy to sell the <<Insert specific console>> version as all other timed exclusives are.

Properly coded PS3 games will not port to the 360 nor the PC very well. We of course know the reverse is true.

YES! I was hoping it is going to be PS3 exclusive! Another one to my growing PS3 collection. I heard Mercenaries 2's lead platform is also the PS3, so I think I am going to get the version, unless the it is going to be wonderfully ported to the PC (I dislike ports, especially bad ones).

I was thinking the same thing. It's probably too difficult, or would require too much time/money, to port it.

I saw mention of 4 PS3's = 4 player co-op, but will the game support 4 players on one PS3?

Yes 4 player split screen is supported I believe.
