Dead or Alive 5 on Playstation 3 Will Blow Fighting Fans Away

E-mail Print PDF
Koei TecmoIt seems like forever since we first got word of Dead or Alive 5 coming to the Playstation 3 back in November of last year. At that time, the word was that the game was in production for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and news came to us through a large distributor from the UK instead of straight from the horse’s mouths at Koei Tecmo.

Now images are popping up of the game running on the Playstation 3 hardware and we’re obviously happy. We followed up with our friends in the UK to see if anything new had developed and it looks like the game is coming along nicely and has actually been shown to distributors. Now most people tend to think of publishers as distributors, but typically these are just middle-man companies that buy in bulk from pubs and sell to smaller (and sometimes large) retailers who don’t deal directly. What we’re being told is that there has been nothing shown for the Xbox 360 version of the game. In fact, in every meeting where the game was shown to distributors in the UK, it was only running on the PS3 and no specific details were discussed about the release of an Xbox 360 version other than in passing, which leads us to believe we’re not only looking at the first Dead or Alive fighting game on a Playstation home console since DoA 2, but it’s likely a timed exclusive.

The most interesting tidbit of information was how impressive the game is shaping up. According to a buyer for several large UK retailers, the game (shown in video form) is absolutely stunning. We’ll have to wait to judge for ourselves, but needless to say, we’re excited.

I liked Team Ninja a lot better when they had a MS fanboy running it, not this PS fanboy. I know DOA started out as PS3, but its had it's home on Xbox for so long now if it does have any exclusive PS3 deal I will be pretty upset

Everyone keeps forgetting that Dead or Alive started on the Sega Saturn and THEN on the PSone. Dead or Alive 2 was on the Dreamcast and THEN on the PS2 with Hardcore. DoA was never a Playstation franchise. It was a Sega franchise that got Playstation ports and then an Xbox exclusive franchise

You are correct. I'm still excited to see this though, DOA on the PS3 has been a long time and coming. I just hope these rumors are true, don't necessarily care if its exclusive or not, just excited for some sweet DOA action. I hope its not like DOA4, DOA2 Hardcore is still the best for me...

who the hell cares what system it was on, it's on PS3 get over it. 80% of the franchises on the 360 were Playstation franchises since the xbox never existed till after the PS2 released. Plus, I like the ps3 versions better. The 360 versions of NG just went crazy on random blood and lost itself IMO. I hope they go back to fun and basics in this DOA

Everyone needs to get over it. If its Ps3 only 360 only it doesn't matter true Doa fans will be happy its coming out and the series is living on. I don't care if its cell phone exclusive I plan on buying it and playing it. It's been like 5 years since a true doa game.

If I see a DOA5 release at ALL I'll be more than happy.
Who cares if another console gets it too?

It doesent matter if it becomes a multiplat, Even PS3 has lost exclusivity on some games. Tekken as an example it was a PS game since Tekken 1 to 5

I agree with some of the people above, I would love to see Dead or Alive 5 on any home console. I have even gone on record saying that if Tecmo made their own console and the only game that would run on it was DOA5 I would not think twice to buy it. I mean after all I bought xbox 360 for doa4, bought xbox for doa3, bought ps2 for doa2hc and bought dreamcast for the original doa2. I already had a ps1 when I heard of doa1 as well as the japanese saturn version. I will be buying a 3ds for DOA3d so you could say that I have long been awaiting a new console version of doa.
