Medal of Honor Airborne delayed on PS3

In what is turning out to be yet another bad media day for Sony it has been revealed that the much hyped Medal of Honour has now been delayed on the PS3.

This highly acclaimed WWII FPS by EA is hitting the Xbox 360 shelves on the 28th of August 2007. Currently there is no news on when the PS3 version will arrive…

I am really starting to wonder how many hits Sony can take before it starts to crumble…. It really does need a good E3 to convince people to pick up a PS3 in the holiday rush…

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    They just can’t give sony a break.

  • MarioAna

    Don’t worry too much about Sony. They are having plenty of problems but there are things going right for them as well:

    1. They will have a completely new and improved rumble system on the next SixAxis.
    2. The PS3 boosted Blu-Ray sales by 1000% (not a typo) in Europe.
    3. There have been reports that the PS3 failure rate is less than 1%.
    4. The games are coming soon.
    5. PS2 still selling huge volumes and these people will most likely eventually move to the PS3.
    6. Home is coming, not for everone but many will enjoy it.

    Sony are copping it now, but this is a long race and it looks like all three consoles are going to come out if it pretty well.

    Sony will be fine, just give them 6 months.

  • Ruslan

    Sorry but lets be realistic here :

    1. Sony laughed off rumble at first, gamers cried foul and now they reverse their initial decision? What kind of silly research dept does Sony have? Moroon Inc.?
    2. Link please. Selling 100 BRs one month and 1000 next month is hardly a boost.
    3. For that price I honestly hope no failures do occur although I am on my 2nd PS3.
    4. They have been saying that since last year.
    5. PS2 gamers need a KILLER title to do so, 2008 anyone?
    6. Home is a waste of money & resources IMO. Give me games, not some virtual reality world which I have plenty of on other gaming devices.

    I mostly got my PS3 for BR knowing games are severly lacking, but if HD-DVD is ever out in SA with a cheaper price tag there goes my PS3 excuse. HD-DVD is technically superior to BR, it aint all about size you know. 😉

    Ruslan, you are one of THE unhappiest owners of a PS3 I’ve ever seen. It seems that if ever something positive is said about it you come along and attempt to put a negative spin on it, even if the positive points are based on fact. I really hope a cheaper BR or HD-DVD player comes to SA soon so that you can sell your PS3 and do us all a favour.

  • Ruslan

    The truth hurts isnt it. Shame.

  • papa-action

    Oh, and I’ve also noticed that you always have to have the last say. Prove me wrong…

  • HungryHooligan

    I think Ruslan just knows when a spade is spade. Sony has F$%^ed up big time. And im starting to think the cell technology is really lacking, look at the games cancelling or delaying there launch with PS3. Now if only FFXIII will go to Xbox 360. I think they will eventually just because of the install base or the lack of sonys install base.

  • Ruslan

    Is it just me or why dont PS3 gamers admit that currently the dry spell is purely Sony’s fault? Funny how most folks are ultrakeen to jump on MS for crappy OS with bugs and so forth but in reality 99% of these same people run Windows XP. But all of a sudden Sony is given flak and cranky supporters spring up to defend the arrogant monopoly. Read the truth oh dear gamer, this time Sony has to dig itself out from their own grave as their blatant arrogance has kicked them in their own teeth.

    Its not about having the last say, its simply about Sony admitting a possible early defeat, swallow their arrogance and drop the price of their so that the masses can have the final say in this console sage.

    Maybe with the PS4 they will now what to do and avoid this mess.

  • papa-action

    Sorry guys, you’re straying from the point. There’s no doubt that Sony is in a tight spot and they’ll have to do a lot to get out of it. If MGS and FF go multi it’s probably tickets for them but my point is that MarioAnna mentioned some genuine positives and all you want to do is throw a wet blanket over them. Not cool!

  • Ruslan

    Ok. Some are definite positives while the rest are pure speculation ( games arriving when? ) or others have no impact on games ( BR sales wtf? ).

    Maybe I should just stop complaining and avoid reading all the NEWS about PS3 this and that, and purely know what on whichever platform a cool game is out I will be able to get it. But in all honesty Sony had plenty of time to do their homework and avoid leaving PS3 gamers to dry out like this.

  • LazySAGamer

    I think what is becoming abundantly clear is that the gamers are getting sick and tired of Sony’s promises and now want to see some results.

    The PS3 at its core is a gaming console. Bring on the games….

  • max

    Well said!!! This FUD does get really annoying but for what Sony have done they do actually deserve it. By mid year ’08 we will be able to tell who has won. Then we can complain all we want. Maybe this E3 will change things a lot.

  • MarioAna

    Hey LazySAGamer,

    i’m trying to address the points made by Ruslan, but this thing keeps telling me i’m attempting a duplicate post.

    Help me out here!

  • LazySAGamer

    From MarioAna (I have no idea what is wrong, will look at it)
    Fair enough:
    1. It’s irrelevant if they laughed it off, it’s coming and that all that counts, i don’t care about intentions only results. I want rumble and if they give it to me then i’m happy.
    2. http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=26380
    180,000 BRs sold.
    3. Either you were the 1 out a 100 shot or you simply mistreated it.
    4. True, but we have confirmed dates for some July/August releases.
    5. The majority of PS2 owners will buy the PS3 because of games like GoW MGS4 etc. And those won’t be out for a while, the PS3 will have a large user base it will just take time.
    6. That’s just your opinion, plenty of people love the Home idea, which is why crap like “The Sims” can sell so many copies, but just because WE don’t like them doesn’t mean they won’t move consoles.
    And now for the best part: HD-DVD superior to BR… Who cares? It does’t matter which is better. The only thing that matters is who wins, what good is having the best tech but it’s dead?

  • Ruslan

    1. Just kinda shows their misunderstanding of the gaming market for one. 😉
    2. I followed your link and subsequent links, cant find an independent site to verify those figures as they are Sony’s press releases. Regardless, the PS3 didnt have any effect on BR sales in that respect.
    3. Nope. Out of the box, setup wifi, worked for 30 mins, first firmware update, reboot and wham. Nada. Took it back after 2 days for a new one. A dud perhaps?
    5. I think the recent price drop will make more sales in the US or EU if those prices come into effect.
    6. OMW, please dont let the Sims take over the console world too.

    Your last statement baffles me :

    “It does’t matter which is better. The only thing that matters is who wins, what good is having the best tech but it’s dead?”

    Isnt that what the PS3 is supposed to be, better tech but which thus far hasnt delivered its full payload gaming wise? Wait & see I suppose.
