Devil May Cry 4 on Xbox 360!

Woah, I never would have thought that DMC4 would be on 360, seeing as it's always been exclusively for Sony. However, given the lackluster sales of the PS3 I'm not too surprised... this is definitely another reason for me to get a 360.

Don't get me wrong though, it is still coming out for the PS3 (and surprisingly for the PC) but I'm still surprised that Sony wouldn't try to buy the rights to it, especially since it has such a huge following.

Press Release from Capcom
 "Devil May Cry" is a series of popular, stylish action games, with a cast of unforgettable characters. Since the release of the original "Devil May Cry" in 2001, the series has shipped 6,800,000 copies as of December 31st, 2006, proudly making it one of Capcom's flagship titles. The series appeal is not limited to games; an animated TV series to be broadcast on Japan's WOWOW network is slated to air Spring 2007. The latest iteration, "Devil May Cry 4" will take advantage of each platform's hardware strengths to achieve the most stunning visuals in the series to date, and the introduction of a mysterious new protagonist will keep the action fast and fresh. Even before its release, "Devil May Cry 4" has been met with tremendous anticipation, as fans patiently endured long lines at TOKYO GAME SHOW 2006 for the chance to play the demo. "Devil May Cry 4" will be released simultaneously for the PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox 360™ platform

The only way I'd get a PS3 now is for FFXIII, but I'm not getting a console for one game. So I hope Sony has more reasons for me (and everyone) to get the PS3. I'm also surprised they released God of War 2 for the PS2 too, especially since PS3 users lose out (if they don't have a PS2, they might have traded/sold it towards the new PS3) and the PS3 has trouble with it's backwards compatibility. It was probably a cash grab on a successful franchise with a stable userbase.

Oh wow that looks sweet. I just checked out a trailer on you tube. The sword at around the 2:00 minute mark is huge!
