Its rare, infact the roles are usually reversed when Xbox 360 loses an exclusive to the PS3. Even though Castle Crashers was only a XBLA title, it was one of the most popular XBLA titles out there. Castle Crashers developers The Behemoth have announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that the game will also be released on the PS3 (probably through the PSN store) and will be a playable version on the show floor. This version has not been dated, though it will include the PS3 Trophy system. Just imagine quaffing on a PS3 controller!
Surprised!? Its not like this title couldn’t handle itself on PS3. So it’s about time that PS3 gets another exclusive from the Xbox 360. There are very few games intended for just the Xbox 360 that stretch out to other consoles. Honestly the only ones that come to mind are Ninja Gaiden Sigma and the future release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Even with the possibility of having Mass Effect and Left For Dead on the PS3 those are most likely not happening immediately. PS3 so far have lost a ton of intended exclusives over the span of the consoles release. Grand Theft Auto 4, Assassin’s Creed, Devil May Cry 4, Virtua Fighter 5, Tekken6, Metal Gear Solid (name only), Final Fantasy XIII, Blazblue: Calamity Trigger, and the list goes on. So to get a game from the Xbox 360 library released for the PS3 means possible future titles losing their exclusivity. Does this mean The Behemoths third game due to be released in the future will see the possibility of a PS3 counterpart? Lets keep our fingers crossed along with all the PS3 owners out there.
