Retail Radar: Two Worlds for PS3, Blazing Angels 2, new Godfathers

Subtitles abound as product listings pop up for new versions of Southpeak's open-ended RPG, Ubisoft's next-gen dogfighter, and EA's gangster game.

by

The Retail Radar spotted a few incoming bogeys of note this week, starting with a PlayStation 3 edition of SouthPeak Interactive's open-ended fantasy role-playing game Two Worlds.

According to a product page on GameStop, SouthPeak will be bringing Two Worlds: The Temptation to the PS3 in October. The subtitle suggests the version of the game made available to PS3 owners would differ somehow from the Xbox 360 version of the game, though the listing has no details as to how. The GameStop site frequently uses placeholders instead of confirmed launch dates, but the PS3 edition's tentative October release date significantly trails the listed Xbox 360 and PC release dates (currently March and May, respectively), so additional content or the inclusion of PC and Xbox 360 downloadable content is a possibility.

Over on GameFly, the online rental service expects Ubisoft's Blazing Angels to take to the skies once again this March with Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII for the Xbox 360. Given that the original game based many of its missions on actual battles, the subtitle suggests the developers could drop that approach for the sequel. The original Blazing Angels arrived on the Xbox, Xbox 360, and PC last March, with a PS3 edition arriving last month. A Wii version was originally announced as a launch title for the system, but was delayed and is now expected by the end of March.

Finally, GameFly also has listings for new versions of Electronic Arts mob movie tie-in The Godfather. While EA had already confirmed the Corleone crime family's appearance on the Wii, the PlayStation 3 edition is technically unannounced (if not entirely unexpected). The entries are shy on details, but it looks like they do include subtitles. The PS3 version is supposedly subtitled "The Don's Edition," while the Wii version is dubbed "The Blackhand Edition." Among the downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of the game is "The Don Collection," which includes three bonus missions, access to more powerful guns and henchmen, as well as $400,000 of in-game money.

Please note, while retailer listings frequently jump the gun on publishers' product announcements, they should not be taken as final confirmation of a game's existence; nor should the absence of a listing be considered as proof that a game isn't coming to a given platform.

I hope the new Blazing Angels is better than the first. :(

Exclusives...big deal. I want more games for console, not fewer games for yours. If I'm playing a great game on my system, why do I care if somebody else is playing the same great game on another system? The only "problem" with multiplatform releases is trying to decide which system to buy the game on. PS -- I'm happy to see the PS3 library growing. I expect we'll see some truly great titles for it by the end of the year.

Let's see here... who said Sony only had one good exlcusive left? Off the top of my head I can name several proven big time game titles coming exclusively to the PS3 that have been announced. Gran Turismo 5, Final Fantasy 13, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Unreal Tournament 2007. I could mention alot of other new exclusives but these are just the titles that have proven to be good with every release. Not to mention I just put down the ANNOUNCED game titles so far. I can almost guarantee anyone that there will be other big titles exclusive for the PS3 like God of War 3 and rpg exlcusives like xenosaga and suikoden. Titles that are brand new this generation that are exclusive to the PS3 include Lair, Motorstorm, Formula One, Heavenly Sword, Armored Core 4, Coded Arms Assault, and Warhawk. Also Turok looks promising and the first one on the n64 was great.

thejok3r One possibly good game out of 3 PORTS also coming to the PS3 (two worlds, looks like crap graphically though for both systems). You Sony folk are so lucky! I've read that ya'lls only exclusive you can still tout (metal gear solid) might come to the 360 as well. Was sad to hear about how this time Microsoft has exclusive GTA content for when that comes out. I feel sorry for you guys that adopt an inferior system because it's the cool thing to do among people that don't know jack (or care) about the actual performance/quality of a product. I feel sorry for you because you are a deluded fanboy. Dont you know that when gaming companies compete, the consumers win. Its stupid for you to be happy when a company is not doing well. I know what it is, you're just mad that you cannot have both and have to find faults in other systems to justify your loyalness to a brand. Just get both systems (like me) and stop bashing the system that you obviously dont have.

I think it's nice that PS3 purchasers will be able to play a good game or two.

Bad news for Xbox 360? I see a listing of three (3) ported games for the PS3. Aren't Sony users LOVING all of their exclusive content??

My friend and I decided that one of us would buy a xbox 360 and the other a ps3. I got the ps3 and my friend got the 360. We have played both systems at each others house for awhile now and I have noticed one thing that pisses me off about the 360. The 360 is so LOUD if you don't have the sound up almost all the way you can hear the fans blasting away. We even put the 360 behind his bookcase and we can still hear it making all that noise. I just want to throw a brick at it. *UPDATE* My friend has now had to replace his xbox 360 2 times because of overheating. Microsoft told him they would not repair or replace it because it's 10 days over warranty.... WHAT A JOKE!! this makes me even mad even though I didn't buy the thing.

"OMGOMG LOLOLOL XBOX360 losing exclusives lolololol. That is the common reaction everytime something that was ps3 exclusive has been announced on another system. But PS3 fanboys have class and we rejoice alone, not by flaming" you people are so funny , two worlds isn't a great title of 360 like assassin's creed or virtua fighter 5 , also there will be a 6 months delay after xbox360 version released , I think you sony fanboys should be so sad because 3rd partiy publishers are making ps3 as a second choice for their products or maybe 3rd , just look at the news about blazing angels 2 ( they just released first one for ps3 a month ago and now they are going to release second one for xbox360 in march )

The links are mixed up. If you click on the Don Edition it'll take you to the Wii Site, while clicking on the Blackhand Edition will take you to the PS3 site. Though they might fix by the time you read this.

I agree with Ryo_Kensen. My grandpa got to hand al pacino a telephone in the film as an extra. Maybe I could play as him! lol

They should make a game on The Godfather Pt. II, it'd be fun to play as the young Don Vito.

Wait a minute. Another Blazing Angles game in roughly a year or less already??? If it doesn't get roughly the same review scores, or lower, compared to the first one, I will be surprised.

Godfather for Wii.............? Dont screw this up EA. You've been good with support as of now. Madden 07 was great, SSX Blur looks A-AA for me, Sims Wii looks nice(please let there be online) and this should open a more mature audience for the Wii. 8) Dont be Ubisoft and bring shameful ports to a great system.............Rayman was good though. 8P

Thank goodness the PS3 will finally have some wrpg's to play. Just like the 360 will have some jrpgs. Good times.

Almost no more exclusive main titles/franchise anymore for each console; it's all about exclusive subtitles/contents now.

That sucks :( At least we'll get Two Worlds first. And regarding the-very-bests comment, the PS3 is losing much bigger franchises, ala GTA etc, than the box is.
