E3 2012: ZombiU Could Come To PS3 + Xbox 360


Ubisoft’s newly announced Wii U exclusive, ZombiU may not stay an exclusive in the future and may come to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key has said that due to SmartGlass and the link-up between the PS3 and PS Vita, a port could be possible. Speaking to IGN he stated:

“ZombiU at its core was designed to be a great Wii U game and in order to make that work on other platforms they would have to change a lot of what makes the game cool,And I’m not saying that can’t be done, but not in the next six months, you know? When we launched the Wii we had a game called Red Steel that was exclusive to the Wii and it was designed for the Wii. We talked about bringing that to other platforms, and we always kept coming back to ‘what makes the game cool isn’t what would make it cool on those other systems.’ The brand itself we generally try to exploit everywhere we can, but I think for now it’s going to be a really, really good Wii U game.”

“There’s definitely going to be knowledge that we gain from developing for Wii U that we’ll be able to transfer not only to SmartGlass technology but also to even the cross-talk on PlayStation 3 and Vita. The whole industry is evolving towards this multiple screen mentality. We love that.”
