Child of Eden on PS3 Confirmed For September

Ubisoft remaining mum on whether Q Entertainment's implementing Move support.

Ubisoft has been suspiciously quiet about Child of Eden for PlayStation 3. Tetsuya Mizuguchi's self-labeled spiritual successor to Rez has been pushed as a Kinect headliner since its E3 unveiling, but the game is most definitely coming to Sony's platform, too, with rumors of 3D and Move support swirling.

Reports out of Europe suggested the PlayStation 3 version would not appear alongside the Xbox 360 one on June 14. That's been confirmed. Ubisoft told me last week that Child of Eden on PlayStation 3 is scheduled for September, but refused to characterize the news as a delay, citing that no date had been issued in the first place. It was pretty natural, however, to assume we'd get a simultaneous release. 

 You can't help but wonder what this would look like in 3D, too.
A recent  story suggested Move support was "expected," but when I asked, Ubisoft would not confirm whether Sony's motion controller would be usable in Mizuguchi's next game.

"Aside from the September release timeframe and that it will be awesome, we have nothing else to confirm about PS3," said a company spokesperson.

Move support could very well be in the final product, but Ubisoft's not being definitive just yet.

Good to know it'll be awesome, though.

Seems neat

Ahh, but I wanted   Mizuguchi to melt my brain with sound in the summer on the PS3.

It'll blind you on 3D

At least is going to be awesome. We have that.

I think this game MIGHT just be a little too much in 3D... I'd rather look at it as an art form than a 3D spectacle. It seems like it's definitely a more artistic game. Another way of saying what I mean is that the gimmick of 3D might detract from the experience.

I really hope this game has Move support. Aside from Killzone 3 and RE5 there really isn't any good games for Move.

That company spokesman sounds like James Mielke.

Trippy graphics...  so that's what it looks like when you're on LSD.

They could make it more awesome by having a special edition with Rez HD for PS3 on it.

Aw nuts.


@BulletproofMonk: Don't worry, they said it will.

The network should be up by then.  Sorry I had to say it.

Kinda weird that they wont just confirm the Move support. Makes me think they're under some kind of contract with Microsoft to not mention certain things before the Kinect version launches. Or they're waiting for a big E3 reveal. Either way, it seems like Move support is no brainer....I mean, c'mon, how do you NOT make this a Move game?

I'm just happy knowing the PS3 will actually get this. Looks pretty awesome.

Of course there will be 3D and Move support.

Posted by Xpgamer7

either way it'll be great.

Child of Eden is looking top notch.  Too bad PS3 users have to wait so long.
