    The E3 demo wasn't running in real-time. It was a VIDEO. EA didn't have alpha PS3 SDK's until atleast early Summer 05 (which is when Sony sent out all their alpha SDK's to their "high profile" devs like EA and Konami).

    So, no - it wasn't. Despite the claims that it was... it wasn't. EA never ported FN 03 to 360 from PS3 and had it done that, what little work had been done on the PS3 version was most likely thrown out as alpha and pre-alpha SDK's were extremely poor and a pain to work with (IE: not optimized). You can ask anyone with a PS3 alpha SDK and they'll tell you that much.

    So EA had neither the hardware nor the time to get FN 03 running as good as it was at E3 05.

    Nothing like that, this just shows you that the XBOX360 has better memory to render in game graphics than the PS3.

    Monopolizing? Now that is just a silly statement. Who has a decade of a virtual monopoly in the gaming world?

    I hate to break that to you, fanboy.
    So Ubisoft would sacrifice the Splinter Cell franchise for a check from Microsoft? Your sure it has nothing to do with the 360 having better graphics, better games, bigger install base, or anything like that? Even from a "fanboy", it just seems like the most logical explanation...

    It's not really 'monopoly' by Sony, they haven't bought any (not that i know of, or anything big at all) franchises like Microsoft has.

    Yea, really, i was talking about gaming, after all, this is a gaming forum, is it not? I hope you had fun looking for a list that has nothing to do with what i was talking about, and no one is going to tediously look through that list to find all gaming related things.

    Would that be considered off topic spam? Just wondering, hah.
    Returned for a visit to this forum, only to find the usual crappy suspects here.

    Wow, so... I guess naming first party releases nowadays marks a monopoly.

    With the exception of Zipper and Naughty Dog, the majority of Sony's U.S. and EU developer purchases were for developers that at the time were either start-ups or small indie developers. Studios like Incog/Psygnosis and the like were bought out because they weren't strong financially and had ties to Sony due to their previous releases.

    Sony doesn't own Factor 5, just as they don't own Insomniac.

    So even with your copy and paste job, your post is still rather irrelevant because we could name all the first and second party Nintendo releases and all the MS first and second party releases throughout their lifespan and you'd see a similar amount of "franchise" titles.

    That isn't a monopoly - maybe you don't understand what it meant.

    And Drago... no PUBLISHER like Ubi would go single-platform over multi unless there's monetary compensation.

    The strengths of a console don't mean jack squat to Ubi. They're a business and money matters more than how better the texturing on the 360 ver. would be.

    If that were true... boy we would never have seen any of the PS2 and Gamecube ports of their Tom Clancy titles.
