PS3 leading cross-platform software development? Haze and Devil May Cry say yes

Like a twist in a not-so-good mystery novel, it appears as though some developers are now taking their cross-platform games on the PlayStation 3 first and porting down to the lesser systems. It was already revealed last week that Devil May Cry 4 was being developed first on the PS3 and then being ported down to the rest, and now we have word that Ubisoft's first-person shooter Haze will get the same treatment. From GameSpot:

This morning, Ubisoft revealed that the PS3 is now the "lead platform" for Free Radical's forthcoming shooter, Haze. Originally set for a release on the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 this spring, the game will now debut solely on the PS3 this fall.

In fact, the fact sheet provided by Ubisoft no longer lists the PC or Xbox 360 versions of the game, prompting some speculation that it may become PS3-exclusive. The UK Haze site for the game also only bears the PS3 logo, although the American Haze site still sports the Xbox 360 and PC-DVD logos at its bottom.

Hmmm, I smell a trend. Maybe that Cell development documentation Phil Harrison was talking about giving to third-party developers at GDC is starting to show its colors. Well played sir, well played.
