In what?s becoming a very popular U-turn in this generation, Tecmo has announced that Quantum Theory, once a PlayStation 3 exclusive, has gone multiplatform.
This is a move made even more curious by the fact that back in E3 2009 Tecmo stood by Sony?s console
, stating that Quantum Theory
(and Ninja Gaiden Sigma II
) would remain a PS3 exclusive because "it?s the most powerful hardware."
Clearly, money makes the world go round more than technical power; and offering a title on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 allows for a bigger return on investment. Still, Sony?s having a hell of a time keeping any third-party exclusives. Perhaps it was a sound idea to invest in first parties after all.Quantum Theory
has been detailed by critics as a ?Gears of War
-esque adventure game?, where one controls a gun-toting fellow named Syd fighting in a shape-shifting battlefield. Voice chat and four online multiplayer modes were previously announced.
