Coming from several different sources is yet another rumor that a major PS3 exclusive is going to jump ship. This time it's the perennial combo crunching fighter, Tekken 6 (http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?lp=nl_en&url=http://www.xbox360only.nl/nieuwsitem.php?nid=3657). Furthermore, Namco is already working on the title, and it will be available just after the PS3 version. Though Virtua Fighter 5 (http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/2006/12/21/virtua-fighter-5-is-coming-to-360-booyah/) is nothing to sneeze at, industry watchers will know that Tekken is Sony's big name fighting franchise. Since its inception, no Tekken game has graced a non-Sony console, with the minor exception of Tekken Advance on the GBA. The info comes from an anonymous tipster at IGN -- supposedly the same person who leaked the Virtua Fighter 5 info. Could it be true? Company loyalty tells us no, but financial logic tells us yes. Namco brought Soul Calibur II to multiple platforms, only to have Sony snag exclusivity for Soul Calibur III. We're betting that Namco made a lot more money with Soul Calibur II (we're sure Link helped with that). Honestly, if Sony can't get PS3s into people's homes, publisher have no choice but to go multiplatform. This rumor is still tenuous for now, but it wouldn't surprise us if it was true.

Is this a new trend arising? It sounds like every single game is going to be multi-plat. I don't know if this is true or any of the rumours but we'll have to wait and see. Sony needs to boost it's production if they want to have big sales.

Is this the time where Sony begin to realise that although committed gamers will happily shell out for games etc, they will not be help to ransom for a games playing blu-ray POS and where the developers are realising that due to Sony's error in giving Microsoft such a head start, most of the "money spending" hardcore gamers have 360's? Oh I hope so.

Not. Happening. But it would kick ass if it did, as Tekken is pretty much the only fighting franchise I can sink my teeth into aside from Soul Calibur.

I was hoping for a new Killer Instinct after the Rare acquisition.
Im still hoping...

I hope these both turn out to be true - it would be another huge broadside at Sony. I have nothing against them really, I just think they have gone about PS3's launch in a very incompetant manner.

Killer Instinct would be great. That, Tekken, DMC & MGS would just be awesome.

I heard the stuff about Killer Instinct a while back, but the real pot of gold in Rare's history is Battletoads! Can we get an arcade port/new game?

Wake me when the words "Tekken" and "rumor" are replaced with "MGS4" and "confirmed". Seriously though, Tekken on 360 would be cool, but I'd much rather have DMC4 or MGS4.

Heed my words: MGS4 will be available on the 360 6-8 months after the PS3 release. You can quote me on that.

Thanks. I don't think Tekken will make it to 360, but if the Ps3 is bombing worse than expected, it might come.
