Where is the Iron Man 2 (PS3) review?

Our review for Iron Man 2 just went live today, and some of you alert readers may have noticed that the review is only for the Xbox 360 version. So where is the PlayStation 3 version?

Our review for Iron Man 2 just went live today, and some of you alert readers may have noticed that the review is only for the Xbox 360 version. So where is the PlayStation 3 version?

Well, it's like this. We purchased the two versions on launch day and then proceeded to play through the Xbox 360 version. When we fired up the PS3 version, disaster struck! In the middle of the second level, our PS3 abruptly shut off and could not be turned back on. The poor thing died with Iron Man 2 in the disc tray, and we didn't have time to run out and pick up another copy before the weekend. Rest assured, we'll have a review of the PS3 version early next week, but the Xbox 360 review will have to tide you over until then.

Almost three months later and still nothing. I'm sure the game is awful but really guys. "Rest assured, we'll have a review of the PS3 version early next week, but the Xbox 360 review will have to tide you over until then."

Did they write about it everytime a xbox broke down during playtesting??? Would have been a weekly occurence if they did, Suppose the ps3 breaking down was the real news as that doesnt happen often :)

"In the middle of the second level, our PS3 abruptly shut off and could not be turned back on." That's the review.

Why bother reviewing it its a game based on a movie its going to suck. I am surprised if a movie game gets more then a 5.5.

Wait, you actually had to go and BUY it in order to review it? Wow, that's really lame.

The game is so crappy, it caused the PS3 to explode.

Hey Chris Watters, What PS3 model was it? Was it the Slim or the Fat PS3? Thanks in advance!

Try inserting Shellshock 2 into a PS3, not only does it die, it literally explodes.

It's okay Gamespot. Everyone here already knows that all movie tie-in games suck anyways.

Why is it that console owners have to justify what they bought by making fun of other consoles? Who cares if the Xbox or Playstation is the better console if you like what you have? Just like only guys with small penises make fun of other peoples penises. Grow up! (no pun intended ;)

YLOD. Mine just died from it too. And many complaints about it in the forums. Is this the end of the world?? Gamespot should do a investigative report on YLOD!!!

I THINK IT GOT THE YLOD BECAUSE SOMEONE PLAYED DEMONS SOUL ALOT AND DIED A LOT STILL BEST GAME ON THE PS3 AND I FINISHED IT LAST MONTH.

The review better have an @OH SNAP@ emblem. What makes you want to snap your face more than seing your console get fried by a low-quality movie tie-in game?

1. We all know that the review for the PS3 version would be exactly the same as the one for the XB360 version, since 99% of the reviews on here are copied and pasted between systems. 2. It's Iron Man 2.

@sportwarrior Stop bein so hard on GS man. Atleast they are taking the time out to even play a movie based game that sucks more than kungfu panda....I'll review it for them. Don't waste the money.

So is that Gamespot's excuse every single time they lead with the 360 review and drag their feet with the PS3 review? Because it's not like IM2 was the first time this has happened.

@XxyoboyxX haha, that's probably true. Anyway I don't see why this is a big deal. Why so many people are upset is beyond me. I couldn't care less if they didn't review this game, the copies are probably similar. Everyone who is complaining should stop. Have you ever walked into a store and they were out of stock of a product you wanted. Same thing here just they aren't buying a product, they are reviewing, but they still have none left to use. As for the comments others have made about the 360 building an immunity to bad games, that's actually pretty funny. But I'm surprised no 360 fan boys have come and complained about a pointless comment (just like how PS3 fanboys are complaining about something that doesn't matter much)

@ KamuiFei that was the highlight of my night, pure awesomeness

The PS3 commited suicide once it knew Iron Man 2 was inside it. 360 built up an immunity to crappy games :P

A lot of hate going around here. And I don't know why. I haven't seen or played this game, but movie games are generally bad anyway. Nothing to get worked up over for what's likely to confirm that this game sucks. I suppose this isn't really a positive comment either. But as far as bias, didn't GameSpot give game of the year to Demon's Souls for PS3? Are you really upset about a missing review for Ironman 2? Now there's something to think about. Just relax and get back to gaming!

Thats a nice tip for parents who think their kids play too much videogames. Buy Iron Man 2 for PS3, pop it in and watch the console choke itself to death. Problem solved.

The game was like poison to the ps3 and it died on the spot.

The ps3 probably refuse to play it.. ps3 said "Let xbox play all the crappy ones and dont ever ever insert that disc on me or I'll die" then he died and will never turn on again..

The game is still crappastic no matter which console you play it on. Don't bother buying another copy, GameSpot.

Seriously, people will complain about anything lol...the xbox version got a 4.5. Is there really someone out there that thinks the Ps3 version will be so much better that it will get a 9? Sometimes review scores vary a little bit, but the bottom line is it got a sh**y score on the xbox and is probably going to get a sh**y score on the ps3. The reviewer should just move onto another game instead of taking another wiff just to make sure its poo.

Lamest lie ever :P . Guess they had a broken ps3 over at gamespy too, seeing how they still haven't reviewed Demon's Souls and God of War 3.

Is the Silent Hill Homecoming disc stuck in there too?

I do believe what they're saying, Creep, is that they've lost the Ironman 2 bluray in the disc tray. It's not a matter of having extra PS3's, but not having another copy of the game.
