Haze scriptwriter Rob Yescombe has tackled the controversial topic of the game’s exclusivity to the PlayStation 3, insisting that the First-Person Shooter will only be available on Sony’s latest home console.
"Why does everybody keep asking that? It’s a Playstation 3 exclusive. Buy a Playstation 3 and play it. I want it to be the reason people buy a Playstation 3,” said Yescombe.
When asked if the game might possibly come out on another platform in the future, he replied:
"We’re a Playstation 3 exclusive. If by some magical wave of the wand that happens, I won’t be complaining. But we’re a Playstation 3 exclusive."
Yescombe further added that the team have had more experience in working on Sony platforms, and as a result influenced its decision to make the game a PS3 exclusive.
Haze is due out in May 2008.

Please forgive me, but is Haze a squad-based shooter or lone soldier?

Hmm, that's what I was thinking. Since when has Haze become a post-apocolyptic RPG?

Alot is expected from this game...if it actually gets released in "May"!
But I'm sure it'll be better than Soldier of fortune, The Club and maybe even UT3!

Yeah, I'm sure the writer of the article just brain-farted and typed R-P-G instead of F-P-S. Might need some proof readers on the staff, there PSU...

What are they talking about?! ´´post-apocalyptic RPG`` - What the heck?!
HAZE will be exclusive if it performs well on the PS3 (sales wise)! If it doesn´t, it will be ported!! This is obvious! Want exclusives?! Support this game. Buy it, play it, and play online till HAZE 2 comes out.

@taurus82 Its a squad-based shooter, It has 4 players Coop, Online and Offline.
By the way, I think that the Post-apocalyptic RPG must be any kind of mistake mixing the article with Fallout 3

who cares anymore??? i dnt,,,,,

I've seen this kind of article way too much. "such and such debates rumours of PS3/360 exclusivity". Wow who cares theres far too many rumours going about now, you don't have to right an article about every one...

I just wanna play this already and get it over with. I've been waiting for eons for it to come out.
- 3:26am EDT - April 8th, 2008
Are they thinking of Fallout?
- 3:41am EDT - April 8th, 2008
psn id: gingo..... LOL @ post-apocalyptic rpg..... this is the same scenario as MGS4 even when kojima came out and said it was exclusive xbox fanboys still dreamed it was a lie, same with haze
- 4:01am EDT - April 8th, 2008
LOL @ the RPG. Haze is a FPS. To be honest I see haze eventuallly going to the crahsbox3fixme in 09. But buy then who will even care? Honestly there are so many games coming out this year and with FFXIII coming out in 09, it won't matter. My pre-order is paid and I'm excited to see if all the hype was worth the wait. Once again to all the Haze haters who post "I don't even care", "They delayed it to long, Im not gonna get it now" please do us all a favor and STFU.

I suppose technically, every game is an RPG...
But yeah... someone has their genres mixed up!
- 4:53am EDT - April 8th, 2008
PHUK this game already!
- 4:56am EDT - April 8th, 2008
Well well well.... Same developer as Time Splitters I might like this. I've heard great things I'll have to buy it. I love shooters no matter how bad they get they are still fun to me ha ha.

not too sure about HAZE yet although it has looked a lot more crisp than it initially did...i hate to say it but i may have to let this one slip by being that gta4 and mgs4 are coming and with r6v2 and cod4 taking all of my time right now.....

post-apocalyptic RPG, he funny. Anyway I can't wait for this game, but how many times will it take for xbox fans to get it through their thick heads that the game is a ps3 exclusive.
