Konami pulling back on Playstation 3 support?


There have been rumors circulating that Konami is canceling some of their Playstation 3 titles. It started with a rumor that Coded Arms: Assault was getting the axe. Now a group of new rumors from Famitsu are saying that a Playstation 3 version of Gradius is getting canned and Konami will not be working on a Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu game for the system. Losing the Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu series is pretty big, it’s Konami’s baseball series and there are yearly releases that gamers pick up. Traditionally the series has been released on the PS2 and Gamecube. If the Playstation 3 is really losing Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu, Konami is probably moving the series to another console. It’s unlikely that they are going to not make a new Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu game in the future. Coded Arms: Assault may make a console switch too, but the series didn’t fare well on the PSP. It wont be a surprise if Konami drops the game completely. Right now all of this is just heresy, there are no concrete details about Konami’s 2007 PS3 release plans. But as long as Metal Gear Solid 4 remains a PS3 exclusive the console should be OK right?
