Quote:Bethesda Softworks Announces Oblivion™ for PLAYSTATION®3 and PSP®System
Award-Winning, Best-Selling Role Playing Game Slated As PLAYSTATION®3 Launch Title in North America and Europe
September 28, 2006 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks® announced today that its blockbuster role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls® IV: Oblivion™ will be a launch title for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system this November in North America, and next March in Europe when the new console is expected to be released there. In addition, The Elder Scrolls® Travels: Oblivion™ will be released on the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system in the Spring 2007 in North America and Europe.
Both the PLAYSTATION 3 and PSP system titles will be published exclusively in North America by Bethesda Softworks, while in Europe, Ubisoft will serve as co-publisher. Complete details on both games are available in Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine's (OPM) exclusive cover story (November issue), which hits newsstands Oct. 10. In its article OPM previews the gameplay, graphics, and new content in Oblivion and concludes: "If any game is worth the price of the PS3, Oblivion is it."
Released in March for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows, Oblivion has already earned high praises and awards from publications around the world. Official Xbox Magazine (US) gave Oblivion a 9.5 out of 10 and an Editor's Choice award, calling Oblivion "An Absolute Masterpiece." G4 TV named it the Best Game of 2006, and PC Gamer (UK) ranked Oblivion #1 on its list of the Top 100 PC games of all time.
Metracritic.com lists Oblivion as the highest rated game of all time on Xbox 360. Oblivion has also been nominated for numerous awards in upcoming events, including the Golden Joystick Awards (five nominations) and The British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards (five nominations).
"We're very excited to be able to bring a game like Oblivion out for launch for the PLAYSTATION 3," said Bethesda Softworks president, Vlatko Andonov. "Oblivion's countless awards and commercial success to date make it clear that PLAYSTATION 3 owners are in for a real treat this November."
Oblivion features a powerful combination of free-form gameplay, unprecedented graphics, cutting edge AI, character voices by acting legends Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean, Terrance Stamp, and Lynda Carter, and an award-winning soundtrack. Gamers can choose to unravel Oblivion's epic narrative at their own pace or explore the vast world in search of their own unique challenges.
After the mysterious and untimely death of the Emperor, the throne of Tamriel lies empty. With the Empire ready to crumble, the gates of Oblivion open and demons march upon the land - laying waste to everything in their path. To turn the tide of darkness, you must find the lost heir to the throne and unravel the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB and will be in stores throughout North America on November 17. For more information on The Elder Scrolls and Oblivion, visit the official web site at http://www.elderscrolls.com.
Wow, this has really come as a shock to me and a great annoyance. As a loyal fan of Microsoft and Nintendo it comes as a blow that Sony get Oblivion as a launch title. It really annoys me that Bethesda have sold themselves out again...paying for mods and now Elder Scrolls on bloody Sony! What next!!

Fk yeah, I agree with that, I even made a thread a while a go on the TES Forums about it. In fact I've already pre-ordered my Wii and paid it off, so the first day its out im getting it with Zelda and Red Steel. Fk sick!
It would be like the Elder Scrolls travels, not the whole game I would imagine. Like the whole story, just *****ty graphics, no voices, and a low FPS

Ugh.. I hate how developers jump on the console band wagon to try and gain money. And the PS3 of all consoles? Waste of money. Valve plans for HL2 to be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and it got overwhelming negative feedback.
My opinion, wake up developers, stick to your PC's!

omg... well i cant say the ps3 thing is that surprising although still abit
but psp... just no... that would render most of what makes TES so great completely unusable... and i agree about the wii thing
thatd be 1337
When I look at Travels on the main website. I see the cruddy Cell Phone games. I'm desparately hoping that the PSP game is not like the cell phone games and will have atleast a MonsterHunter-esqe world.
