Rumour: Beautiful Katamari may arrive on PS3 after all

11 September 2007

Bandai Namco’s official games page is now listing Beautiful Katamari for release on both the PlayStation 3 and Wii, despite earlier reports that the PS3 version had been cancelled due to porting issues.

Over the last couple of months, there have been countless rumors of a Wii version, with the game's designer admitting it was a possibility. Despite this, Beautiful Katamari was later announced as an Xbox 360 exclusive, with the official box art baring the "Only on Xbox 360" logo – a feature previously the subject of much controversy in the past (Remember Enchanted Arms "Only on Xbox 360" everyone?)

According to Bandai Namco's site, the PS3 game's release date is TBD, along with the Wii version. If the game actually is confirmed for the PlayStation 3, then we can assume the Xbox 360 exclusivity claims are indeed false after all. For now, we should remind people that claims of a version for Sony's console should be labelled as conjecture for the time being, at least until an official statement arrives from Bandai Namco.

Stay tuned for any further developments as they break.
