Eidos Decides to Back PS3 After All

Kane and Lynch also set for PS3 release this Christmas

Posted by Staff
Eidos/SCi has changed itís corporate tune today, finally committing to releasing some decent-looking, original titles on the PS3 this year, with both Kane and Lynch (pictured) and Crossfire set to grace Sonyís beleaguered new platform this Christmas.

In addition to the already announced versions on PC and Xbox 360, you understand.

Kane and Lynch , you may remember, is a new rather disturbing-looking game (in a good way) from Hitman developer IO Interactive, while Crossfire is currently being put together over at Pivotal Games.

"The Board believes that a release of these products simultaneously on all three platforms (PS3, Xbox 360 and PC) including the two next generation platforms will benefit the long term revenue potential for these two strong franchises rather than releasing different versions at different times," the company said in a statement today.

SCi is also looking to sell the movie rights to Kane and Lynch, with a movie version of Hitman currently somewhere in development hell over at Fox Studios.

It's been under siege and harassed (about the boomerang controller at first, but much more after that) since E3 2005 and it's been in difficulties (in perception and manufacturing at least) since E3 2006.

Bet Sony are happy E3 is later this year than before! :-)
