Default Soul Calibur III Announced! PS2 Exclusive!

Quote:
The surprising twist of this announcement is that Soulcalibur III will be system exclusive to the PlayStation 2, and will not appear on Microsoft's Xbox or Nintendo's GameCube at all (and if it eventually will, nobody at Namco is ready to talk about it).
I loved the original and the sequel so I have great hopes for this one. Hopefully it will be more then slight upgrade and add more new things like II did.

That really sucks. I liked the PS2 controller the best for SC out of all of them but I preferd the game on XBox. I really dont see why they went exclusive with the boatload of copies the GC version sold which I would have liked more if the controller settup didnt suck.

The PS2 Version sold almost as many copies as both the Xbox and the Gamecube version combined... Thats why... and probably Sony paid a pretty penny.

Heh, I haven't tried the PS2 version, but I got used to the GC and couldn't stand the XB controls.

But exclusives suck. Still waiting for GTA:San Andreas PC ...

*sigh*, well, so much for 5.1 surround sound and HDTV support. Too bad, SC2 looks spectacular at 720p, even if it did have black bars at the left and right.
