    And no, I'm not talking about Wreckless.

    Silent Dreams 2 with its XBox exclusive scenario is coming out for the PS2.

    If only the game was Toejam and Earl. I REALLY hope that comes out either the PS2 or the Gamecube.

    It seems like if a game sucks, the console doesn't care if it ends up in other places.

    I was just about to post this[​IMG]
    Any word on a US release date? Or even if they will include the making of DVD of the European release?

    Brian, that seems like an exception to the rule. [​IMG] Anyway, people raved about the graphics on this game, I can't wait to see how the graphics on the PS2 come out. It'll be a nice chance to gage whether the PS2 can really keep up with the Xbox's graphics.

    Ryan, I don't think you know the full story on this - Silent Hill 2 is /already/ on the PS2. It came out first on the PS2, then it got ported to the XBox with an 'exclusive' extra scenario to make it different. Now it's getting re-released with that extra scenario.

    I doubt this will be the last exclusive to fall. Particularly with X-box, but with any console. Exclusivity is hard to come by.

    Who cares about exclusivity...I want all games on all platforms! Maybe that would put an end to the constant bickering about what system is better...and it would allow me to play GTA3 on my X-box [​IMG]
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I think Ryan is referring to Wreckless not Silent Hill 2:Restless Dreams.

    Silent Hill 2 came out for the PS2 first but then the XBox had a new scenario in its version. Reckless however, has no been available on any console except the XBox. I think that's what Ryan was referring to not Silent Hill 2.

    Personally, I'm willing to be Wreckless on the PS2 is nothing but a Wreck....could be surprised though, but I doubt it.

    Since when was Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams for the Xbox an exclusive? It didn't have the Only for Xbox stamp on the game shell.

    At the time of its release, every review/preview stated it as 'exclusive new scenario' etc etc.

    Obviously they couldn't put 'only on Xbox' when the game was already on the PS2, could they?

    Well see the PS2 version is just called Silent Hill 2. Whereas the Xbox version is Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams. So they could've put the Only on Xbox stamp on it, if that was Konomi's plan. Sounds like the game reviewers once again didn't know what they were talking about. Big shock! [​IMG]

    Actually, isn't the "only on Xbox" tag used on Microsoft published titles only?

    No. Jet Set Radio Future has the "Only on XBOX" stamp on it.

    You sure the box has the "only on XBox" stamp? All the cover images I've seen don't have it on it. Anyone got a copy handy to check?

    I have the game in front of me and it most certainly does have the "Only on X-box" tag (no pun intended) on it.
