    Aren't these games dead in the water anyway? Much like the WWE.

    OH SNAP!

    Actually, I've bought every Smackdown game since the first one on PS1 (and I don't even watch wrestling anymore). And Smackdown is always a big seller in the States. I was planning on getting a 360 anyway (as well as a PS3...eventually), but now I know which system I'm buying the game for.

    i always end up buying the games when they become greatest hits (which they always do)...and the good thing is that it'll come out for the PS2 (which i have)

    but i still pefer the GC game style since the 64's Wrestlemania 2000.

    Not to derail the thread, but the 360 is the best console I ever bought. And that's with a total lack of store bought games. I got like 6 from the LIVE Arcade as well as the two I got with the system. Best £270 I ever spent.

    Wow, crazy. I wonder why they did that? More of a Fire Pro fan myself, but that is more bad news for future PS3 owners.

    Well, I'm sure that there will be a Smackdown game for it eventually.

    I think Yukes made the right decision to make the Smackdown franchise multi-platform. Especially not that PS3's version is postponed.

    I really hope Wii has it's own game though. DOR is starting to take shape.

    Considering that Smackdown has been a Playstation Staple since the PS1 this is a blow, and makes their decision to go multiplatform a really good one. Prehaps the PS3 is as hard to program for as it has been rumored, some programers have been saying that this is going to be the hardest thing to program for since the Saturn.

    I see two possibilities:

    1) The game won't be finished on PS3 in time due to programming difficulties, and thus gets delayed until it can be ready.

    2) Due to concern over the high pricetag, a PS3 version of the game is being "delayed" until they see how well or how poorly PS3 does this holiday season before it's decided whether the game actually gets a PS3 release or not.

    Either way, I expect to see more of this.

    ...and some are saying it's easier to program than the PS2 and some are saying it's hard to get a game on both platforms. It's everywhere, man.

    Edit: To shin.

    Who has been saying it's easy? I've only heard the opposite.

    Wrestling games peaked at No Mercy. Once they lost the 64 type game play I was never interested.

    Various reports really. I haven't heard anything abuot anyone who says it's the easiest platform to work with or anything by any means, just easier than PS2 which I wouldn't imagine would make a large shift to other platforms. The fact of the matter is that none of us really know how complicated it us and the fact that comments are everywhere doesn't really help.

    That's news to me, everything I have heard has stated it's hard to program for because of the 7 cores, Tha Saturn had a similar issue because of 3 CPU's

    Both of these could be true. The PS2 was incredibly hard to program for, and many feared that Sony would flop because of this back when it first came out.

    the GC games are the 64-style controls...where you hold down the button to grapple.

    Meh doesn't matter to me since I plan on getting Wii and wait for PS3's astronomical price to come down. I still buy WWE games so I can create Goldberg and kick ass with him. Him and Bret Hart are the two I like to play as.

    I still play Here Comes The Pain for Goldberg's excellent intro. One of the best wrestling games ever.

    The game was delayed form what I've heard. It didn't pass Sony's review board or something along those lines so the PS3 version is getting re-worked and we probably won't see it until next year, if at all on the PS3.

    Bring on SvR '08 I say. :)

    Or it is too expensive to make a PS3 game
