Ok, so I know that some of you might have already known this, but it seems like during the last few days most of the internet (including myself) was under the impression that Mirror's Edge was going to be a PS3 exclusive.
An email to EA's PR people this morning however revealed that the PS3 exclusive rumor was due to UK blog incorrectly reporting on the game, and that it will in fact be available for the PS3, the 360, and the PC. When the blog that originally reported it was exclusive (ThreeSpeech) was contacted, they admitted that they made the mistake. The original announcement
also confirms this is true.
I have to hand it to Sony's clever tactic of unveiling the trailer at SCEE; without saying anything they managed to make a large amount of people assume this game was exclusive. Well done Sony PR team.
I know some of the PS3 fans will be outraged/disappointed by this news (although I've never really understood why people get so upset when it turns out games aren't exclusive. For me, the more people that can play a game, the better), but for those who don't have a PS3 this is fantastic news. Expect all sorts of awesome mods and maps and things on the PC version that won't be available on the consoles. (Seriously guys, why are you still playing TF2 on your 360s and PS3s?!)
For everyone who knew this already, I apologize in advance if you feel personally inconvenienced because you chose to read this. For the majority of people who didn't know, what are your thoughts? Excited? Annoyed? Aroused?
