100°
360w ago - THQ announced today that it has canceled PS3 version of Frontlines: Fuel of War(TM) and also the PS2 version of Destroy All Humans!(R): Big Willy Unleashed.

Two unannounced titles for Xbox 360 and PS3, scheduled for 2010, have also been canceled. The Concrete Games studio, which was working on one of the unannounced titles, will also be closed down.

To quote: However, the company expects to report approximately $20 million in accelerated amortization expense related to the underperformance of certain previously-released games, including Stuntman(R):Ignition(TM), Ratatouille and Conan(R). In addition, consistent with the company's previously-announced quality initiatives relating to product development and its product pipeline, the company expects to record non-cash charges of approximately $27 million related to:

1) the cancellation of the PlayStation(R) 3 (PS3) version of Frontlines(TM): Fuel of War(TM) and the PlayStation(R) 2 (PS2) version of Destroy All Humans!(R): Big Willy Unleashed;

Ninja Gaiden 2 will not be multi-platform

50°
361w ago - EGM have for some bizarre reason published their latest magazine with a rumour or typo that Ninja Gaiden 2 will be on both the Xbox 360 and PS3. This would be a small victory for the PS3 if it were true but it is not. Ninja Gaiden 2 is being published by Microsoft Games Studios, this means that they will decide what happens.

The last time I checked Microsoft do not want their competition to have access to their anticipated exclusives. So if the PS3 were to see another Ninja Gaiden game it would be in the vein of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, a long time after the original release. Sorry PS3Fanboys, it's not going to happen. As a symbolic and graphic representation let this picture demonstrate the status of this rumour. The semi official word from Microsoft is past the break.

To add further weight to the argument the Preview Editor for EGM has said that it was infact a typo here.

Splinter Cell: Conviction PS3 dated?

50°
361w ago - The previously 360 and PC-only Splinter Cell Conviction is now also set for a simultaneous release on PS3, according major UK retailer GAME.

The site also pens the game to release on all three formats on April 1, despite previous announcements only stating a vague early 2008 release.

As we all know, retailers have a tendency to let slip on things publishers don't always want revealing. Just look at Konami's latest announcement of which first word came from a very similar posting.

However, Ubisoft UK has told CVG that neither a PS3 version of Conviction, or any proposed release date, have been confirmed by the publisher.

We knew that though, that's why we called. We'll keep the sniffer dogs out on this one...
