Before it was announced for PS3 a lot of people thought it was unlikely that ME1 would ever be released on PS3 because the 360 version had originally been published by Microsoft. I think that's what he means.

Besides minecraft is a great game on the PC but I would not imagine playing it on the PS3. That said I would like to see it on the VITA

I know it is on the PSN store.

 

MasEffect 1 was published by Microsoft so EA who now own the Developer had to wait for the publishing rights of Microsoft to expire before it could goto PS3.

 

Minecraft was bought as a exclusive and if it is a full or timed exclusive we do not know.

 

At the moment their is no plans for it to be on Ps3 and how long that will be I don't know.

The thing is with microsoft you never know what they paid for. Mass Effect was a Xbox exclusive but eventually found its way onto Playstation. So technically there is still a chance that it could come to Playstation. However it is a very,very,very slight chance. I also hate that game so much, complete waste of time in my eyes


Microsoft did not pay for Mass Effect.

The Only reasonn it went multiplatform is that EA bought the developer out.

 

Minecraft is a Xbox console exclusive (yes it is one PC and other none console platforms thats why I say Console excluisve as it is on no other console)

Yea, It would be cool that it did come out for PS3. But Minecraft is an Xbox Exclusive is not a reason. If it was an Xbox Exclusive it would have never came out for PC, No? And Minecraft on Xbox is named "Minecraft: Xbox Edition" That edition is an exclusive to them cause it has their name on it ,which in other terms, means that they can make "Minecraft: Playstation Edition" and that will be an exclusive for Playstation.

the edition that is on Xbox has nothing to do with the PC, Mojang handed the production and development of Minecraft xbox to 4J studios who then asked both Microsoft and Sony for deals for exclusivity or an amicable settlement for a multiplatform. 

 

Xbox gave them a wad of money and enough dev consoles to make the game in conjunction with Microsoft Studios, allowing them to put the same amount of updates as Mojang do in the PC version.

Sony weren't able to match the offer therefore it became an xbox exclusive.

so basically, the game is made by 4J and Microsoft studios, making a Ps3 version a copyright and terms infringement on the initial contract.

^ your reason good sir.

Wrong.
They paid Mojang and made a contract to keep it exclusive for only 1 year max. which is just about to end as I speak, Mojang already confirmed that it will be on PS3 once the deal is over, not WII U though.

no they have not

 

 

they have said they WILL CONSIDER IT once the exclusive deal is over

 


with over 6 million sales on 360 (most sold arcade game to date) they would be silly not to bring it.

 

 

though TBH it would suit the vita and wii u better imo
