You think?? Something tells me that by the time Oblivion
comes out for PS3, enough people just aren't going to care. Regardless of whether they can get a console or not. You are talking about a FULL YEAR
between the 360 release and the PS3 release. Something tells me that its just not going to help. Even if you held off from getting a 360 to wait for the PS3, the game is going to be well past its "relevancy
Think of it this way, if they released G.R.A.W.
on the PS3 at the same time they do Oblivion
, would you care?? Those both came out in March of this year. Come March of 2007, are enough people still going to care?? We'll see when that time comes. But, I personally don't think people will care that much.
This isn't just a PS3 problem though. The same thing can be said for Half Life 2 on the 360. Now sure, when it comes out, you are going to get all the add-ons and episodes to go with it (as will Oblivion on PS3
). But really, that game came out AGES ago. I really doubt that many people are going to care enough to buy that in big numbers.
I understand wanting to give gamers on different platforms the same game, so they can experience it. But, once you hit that certain time frame past initial launch, when the shock and awe wears off, to me it just doens't seem to add up.
