A week before Activision posts its Q1 earnings (and forecast for Q2 inc. PS3 launch), the Call of Duty 3 game information page on Activision's website drops 'PlayStation 3' as a designated platform for the Fall 2006 release date.
http://www.activision.com/en_US/game...0eb6f6a2e.html

PlayStation 3 is still listed for the other two announced launch titles of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Tony Hawk's Project 8. Commence eyebrow raise.

[Update]PlayStation 3 is now listed. Go go web developer incompetence!

Yeah, IIRC rumour has it that the development process is not going smoothly as they're trying to implement the extra light sources

Probably delayed like some other games.

Not that it really matters, people would be best off ignoring this and waiting for the real Call of Duty sequel. Or at least Brothers in Arms 3.

Out of the million or so who bought Call of Duty 2 on 360, how many do you think even care that Infinity Ward made it, or taking it a step further, care or know that they are not making CoD3.

not enough PS3 at launch in western regions, most titles will be delayed into 2007 for that reason.

Doesn't it get old though?? CoD3 doesn't even look next gen....I would care if it were a high budget next gen game but it isn't and it offers nothing new...same old shit over and over again..

I think it could be for 2 reasons:
1. They don't think it will be ready
2. They saw the success of games that came out for 360 after launch, saw how well they sold, and figured it would sell better after launch when the market is not flooded with new games.

This game was going to be overshadowed by Resistance anyways. As much as I don't like how resistance looks, it's still magnitudes more interesting that cod3.

I think it's might be the truth, because they had it then dropped it. Not that I care much for the game.

After this news, Ted Price must be opening a bottle of champaigne in his office. Being the only FPS at launch, and supporting 40 players online multiplayer, i guess that Resistance will sell A LOT this christmas season.

I'd be willing to bet it's just a site error.

CoD3 is the only WWII fps coming this holiday, so missing some revenue on that opportunity must rather annoy Activision, if this is true.

More generally, expect PS3's launch lineup to be pretty fluid until closer to launch. We're bound to see plusses and minuses to the launch catalog in the interim.

It's a weird error, considering they announced it for them all consoles, had them all listed, then pulled the PS3 listing. I don't know why they would do that.

"I haven't heard anything to say that CoD 3 isn't a PS3 launch title, quite the opposite. I believe this is an error on the activision.com site," said the UK Public Relations Manager.

so you won't buy a game that you want to play because the dev took their time to make sure that they put out a product up to their quality expectations? please provide me with a mind being blow smiley.

Depending on what their definition of quality is, if other devs can ship quality games on time, if they need more people on the project to make the deadline, do it or they lose the sale.

uh.. its not that simple.

regardless, don't you like games? don't you want to play games that you enjoy? who cares if the PS3 version arrives late as long as you want to play it.

I don't think your attempts to inject logic and rationality into the discussion will yield much benefit. You'll just get buried in an avalanche of baby pictures and smilies.

I've heard nothing about Call of Duty 3 specifically, but I know that there are a handful of multiplatform titles that are becoming more or less de facto Xbox 360 exclusives because of development issues related to the complicated PS3 architecture. It wouldn't surprise me of CoD3 was one of them.
